I went 9-5 last week, which puts me at 47-29 for the season. Two bad weeks have drug me down a bit and I'm not happy. Not that me being happy ever changed anything, but still.
The unhappiness will spread around a bit, due to no fault of mine.
I've already picked the Patriots over the Cowboys and this might be the biggest non-event of the year. Neither team is going to be hurt by a loss and neither teams is going to be helped by a win
There are three winless teams, the Rams, the Dolphins, and the Saints ( the Bills played Monday night) None of them are playing at home, but that hasn't made a difference anyway. The Rams play the Raven who are not looking bad, the Dolphins play the Browns who can score a lot of points, and the Saints play the Seahawks who deny my ability to predict anything. I'll take the losers to keep on losing!
The Panthers hired Vinny Testaverde as a possible quarterback and that's all he's ever really been. Plus, and this is a very large plus, Testaverde and I were in High School at the same time. Yes, the man is a dinosaur. For all of you who like the4 heartwarming stories about an eldly player coming off the bench for one last hurrah, I wish you luck. The Cards have been playing sound defense and that spells geriatric genocide.
The Redskin go into Green Bay after an impressive win over Detroit. The packers lost an important and heartbreaking game to the Bears. This is going to be a tricky game for The Pack. The Redskins smell blood, and an upset. Anywhere but Green Bay I got the other way but...
Green Bay Wins
I pick them to win and they lose I pick them to lose and they win. The Jaguars confound me. Suppose I pick you to tie, huh? What you gonna do then, smart ass?
The Texans have struggled the last couple of games, the jags have not.
Both the Bengals and the Chiefs have played with major cases of Multiple Personality Disorder this season. Both teams have played dismal and they both have played well. They both have losing records. Coin toss says...
After losing their home opener, the Bucs haven't lost a game yet. Yet they are also erratic. The play a more stable Titans team, but they do play at home. I'll take the Titans.
The Chargers played very well against the Broncos, but Denver put the ball on the ground too often to win. The Raiders just are not a very good team. Will SD get on track and win two in a row?
The Vikings have won one game all year, against the hapless Atlanta Foul-cons. They play a Bears team which seems to be coming out of hibernation.
Between the two of them, the Eagles and the Jets have won a game a piece. New England, unless god strikes them dead, will walk away with the NFC East.
The G-men head into ATL Monday night to play the Hapless Atlanta Foul-cons. Atlanta ‘s teams is not nearly as bad as they appear, but they're playing a team looking to stay in the hunt for a post season playoff spot. Unless owner Arthur Blank gets his money back out of Michael Vick and buys a lot of tickets, the Foul-cons will spend the post season watching a lot of football on television. The Giants might be playing.
Are there only 13 games this week? Did I miss one or two?
