Here we go - the weekly installment of NFL embarrassment. However, I think I'm getting better. Last week, I missed only 3 picks. Let's hope this week I do the same or even better - that would be surprising!
NYJ @ DET - Even though the Lions won last week with the return of Stafford, they won't win this week. They will however make a game of it as they are much better than their record indicates. Jets win.
MIA @ BAL - Huge defensive showdown between these two teams. It could come down to the last play of the game. I think the Ravens win, but the Dolphins have just as much of a chance.
NE @ CLE - Patriots - big time.
SD @ HOU - The Texans get the win over the up and down Chargers.
CHI @ BUF - No Merriman won't help the Bills but Cutler might. I think the Bears win, but if Cutler is on the ground or heaving balls everywhere but to his own team - the Bills could pull it out.
ARI @ MIN - Vikings win despite their soap opera of a season, and no one cares.
TB @ ATL - One of the BEST games of the weekend. This one will determine dominance in the NFC South and quite possibly the NFC entirely. I think the Falcons pull it out but it will be a great, great game.
NO @ CAR - Saints win...because they are playing the Panthers.
NYG @ SEA - Giants win in a close one.
IND @ PHI - Colts have placed Anthony Gonzalez on season ending IR, another injury in a long line of them. Vick is back and I think the Eagles win.
KC @ OAK - The 2nd of the two BEST games this weekend - a real smash mouth game - can you already see the fines that will be handed out after this one?! Bring it...love me some great football like this. I think the Chiefs win, but it's going to be a great game either way.
DAL @ GB - Packers win - Cowboys are done.
PIT @ CIN - Steelers beat down TO, Ochocinco, and company and it will be ugly.
A couple of games could go either way but this is one of the best weekend of games so far this season - football fans are loving it.
