I had a bad feeling about my picks last week, but overall they turned out ok as I ended up one game above .500. Boy was I sure glad to pick that Cowboys game wrong. Eagles remain a half game out of first, and while trying to pick correctly all these games can be fun, the only wins and losses I care about are of the team in midnight green(which they have yet to actually wear this season.)
Onward to Week 9!
Last Week: 8-7 Season 63-57-4
Saints at Panthers The Pick: Saints -3.5 A win tonight should pretty much secure the weak NFC South for the Saints.
Chargers at Dolphins The Pick: Dolphins -1.5 Chargers are dealing with some injuries and just a brutal stretch right now. I think (emphasis on think) that Miami is a solid team. This weekend will determine that.
Jags at Bengals The Pick: Bengals -11 Last week’s win over Baltimore should give the Bengals all the momentum they need.
Bucs at Browns The Pick: Browns -7 Cleveland’s been struggling with the Jags and Raiders, so I was tempted to pick Tampa to cover, but then I remembered they were Tampa.
Redskins at Vikings The Pick Redskins +1 After their huge win over Dallas, I could certainly see a letdown for Washington. But I think they’ll pull this one out.
Eagles at Texans The Pick: Eagles -2.5 J.J. Watt scares the hell out of me, but he’s the only one on that Texans team that does. Really hope Foles has a turnover free game this week.
Jets at Chiefs The Pick: Chiefs -10 Go crazy with the passing game this week, Big Red.
Cardinals at Cowboys The Pick: Cardinals +3 I think the Cardinals could win at Dallas with or without Romo. Still, I have no idea how either of these teams are good.
Rams at 49ers The Pick: 49ers -10 The Austin Davis shine has officially worn off.
Broncos at Patriots The Pick: Broncos -3.5 Here’s my explanation: Denver is better.
Raiders at Seahawks The Pick: Raiders +15 No way am I laying that many points, Seattle is struggling and Oakland still wants to win. Tampa almost won in Seattle last year in a very similar scenario to this game.
Ravens at Steelers The Pick: Ravens -1.5 I really don’t think the Steelers are that good.
Colts at Giants The Pick: Colts -3.5 In a season of strange results, last week’s Steelers victory of the Colts may have been the strangest.
