Less commentary this week, because I’m running late with my picks. I ended up breaking even with last week, going 10 for 15 again. There were a couple that I just don’t know how they went the other way. One I did almost get the Lions/Saints game correct on score, and I correctly predicted the Denver score, but SF was a few points shy of the target. So I take it as an improvement overall. Let’s see if I can take it to 11 this week.
San Diego Chargers vs. Denver Broncos
I don’t see SD beating Denver on a short week, even if they’re pissed about losing to KC.
Verdict: Broncos 42, Chargers 21
Detroit Lions vs. Atlanta Falcons
As much as I want Detroit to lose so the Packers can take 1st place in the division, I don’t see them losing to the dirty birds.
Verdict: Lions 24, Falcons 13
Seattle Seahawks vs. Carolina Panthers
The Panthers don’t got it this year.
Verdict: Seachickens 31, Panthers 10
Baltimore Ravens vs. Cincinnati Bengals
This should be a decent game. I vote for the Ravens taking it.
Verdict: Ravens 21, Bengals 17
Miami Dolphins vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Snoozer. Fish win.
Verdict: Dolphins 17, Jags 3
St. Louis Rams vs. Kansas City Chiefs
You never know with the AFC west. We’ll say Chiefs.
Verdict: Chiefs 17, Rams 7
Chicago Bears vs. New England Patriots
I don’t see Chicago winning this. They look like an 8-8 team this year.
Verdict: Pats 38, Bears 13
Buffalo Bills vs. New York Jets
The LOL teams from New York. Bills win.
Verdict: Bills 17, Jets 10
Minnesota Vikings vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
I think the Vikings might actually win another game.
Verdict: Vikes 24, Bucs 16
Houston Texans vs. Tennessee Titans
Meh. Texans? Maybe?
Verdict: Texans 24, Titans 14
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Arizona Cardinals
Eggles? Nah, it’s in the Cards.
Verdict: Cards 28, Eggles 14
Oakland Raiders vs. Cleveland Browns
Another game I’ll snore through. Browns win another while the Raiders weep.
Verdict: Browns 13, Raiders 3
Indianapolis Colts vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
I don’t see the Colts folding like the Texans, but Steelers are showing some life.
Verdict: Colts 31, Steelers 21
Green Bay Packers vs. New Orleans Saints
I’d be a fool to think this will be an easy game. The Pack heads to NO’s Superdome, where noise can be an issue and the Saints usually play well there. I still think we’ll pull out the win though.
Verdict: Packers 38, Saints 21
Washington Redskins vs. Dallas Cowboys
Cowboys are hot, but I still think they suck. The skins just suck more.
Verdict: Cowboys 27, Skins 10
Giants and 49ers are on a bye.
So there you go. Let’s see if I can get more than 10 right this week.
