Week 9 Picks: Wayne Dobbs

November 3, 2012 Leave a comment

Looks like I managed to have a positive week last week. My record so far is 41-30, considering we started the picks this year in Week 4. I’m hoping for a strong performance this week from the home teams, not because they are at home, it just worked out that way.

The one thing you can count on in this league is an upset, and fans becoming upset. Apparently coaches as well. Let’s hope we see more coaches becoming upset on the sideline in the near future, I mean who doesn’t like childlike behavior with their football? Oh, right.

A little late with the picks, I know. So I brought proof from NFL.com of my victory with the Thursday night pick, I finally won a Thursday Night Football game again!

Wayne Dobbs’ Week 9 Picks:

Thursday Night Football
Chiefs (1-6) vs Chargers (3-4): Chargers
TNF Week 9 Pick NFL.com

Sunday Football
Cardinals (4-4) vs Packers (5-3): Packers – The Cardinals aren’t a bad football team, but their defense isn’t good enough to both stop the Packers offense while also scoring points for their own offense. The Packers may win a close game, but this game should be decided by a score difference of 10 or more. Packers on top at home.

Ravens (5-2) vs Browns (2-6): Ravens – The Ravens have looked bad in recent weeks, but the Browns are not a better team. Despite being at home, despite having media praise as a sleeper team, despite having somewhat of a notable defense, despite having somewhat of an equally notable offense, the Browns are not a good team and won’t win this game. The Ravens will take this one, regardless of how close this game could be from pure lack of offensive success.

Dolphins (4-3) vs Colts (4-3): Colts – I’m not sure about this game. I don’t like either team to win. The Dolphins have been explosive at times on both sides of the ball, while the Colts have been mostly consistent on both sides of the ball. I’m going Colts in this one, I think Andrew Luck will find a way to win if they are behind in the 4th.

Lions (3-4) vs Jaguars (1-6): Jaguars – After last week’s performance by the Lions, a lot of people could easily write-off the 1-6 Jaguars at home. I am not one of those people, the Lions are not a great team this year and neither are the Jaguars, but the Jaguars are due a win after appearing to have come together. I’m taking the Jaguars in this one.

Broncos (4-3) vs Bengals (3-4): Broncos – The Bengals are a decent team. Good defense, good offense, just not quite pulling out those wins. The Broncos on the other hand have a little bit better of a defense, a little bit better of an offense. The Broncos have also won one more game this year than the Bengals. Despite being on the road and having similar team comparisons, the Broncos should be able to win this game.

Bears (6-1) vs Titans (3-5): Titans – This one is a gamble, but I’m willing to take it. The Titans have a high-powered offense as of late, and the Bears hit a roadblock recently. Whether or not the Bears game was a fluke will determine this game. I’ll take the Titans offense at home, despite the Bears having what could be a true defense.

Panthers (1-6) vs Redskins (3-5): Panthers – I think the Panthers will continue to climb out of the hole their in after nearly beating the Bears last week, while the Redskins could continue to lose games from sporadically good and bad play. If Cam Newton can find a deep threat in this game, they might score enough points to win.

Bills (3-4) vs Texans (6-1): Texans – It is true that the Bills score a lot of points, it is also true they have a defense around the lower-end of mediocre. After the Texans lost Brian Cushing and followed that the next week with their first loss, and it was a huge loss, their seasoned looked over. Not anymore. The Texans are proving to be a great team this year, and should be able to win this game at home against an offense and runs and guns their way to success.

Vikings (5-3) vs Seahawks (4-4): Seahawks – This is one of those games you wish you could pick both teams. Strong defenses, great running games, mediocre quarterbacks, this game is going to be close. Seahawks should be able to pull it off with what appears to be the better offense and defense, though slightly if at all.

Buccaneers (3-4) vs Raiders (3-4): Buccaneers – The Raiders defense isn’t very good at home, well they aren’t very good anywhere but at home this season they haven’t generated turnovers. Turnovers typically give the Raiders a chance to win, unfortunately it is also typically their only chance to win. The Buccaneers have been lighting up the scoreboard throwing the ball deep, they should win this game.

Steelers (4-3) vs Giants (6-2): Giants – This is one of those games where no matter what one team does, the other team can come back at any moment and win the game. I think the Giants will come out on top. Hopefully we see a shootout on Sunday between these two Super Bowl winning quarterbacks.

Sunday Night Football
Cowboys (3-4) vs Falcons (7-0): Falcons – I’m picking the Falcons for a number of reasons. The Falcons are one of the best offenses in the league this season while the Cowboys offense falls apart regularly throughout games this season. The Falcons have won by being ahead the whole game, and by coming from behind this season. The Falcons are undefeated and are at home. Sorry Cowboys, but you just aren’t very good this year and the Falcons remain the only undefeated team for a reason.

Monday Night Football
Eagles (3-4) vs Saints (2-5): Saints – The Saints are going to win this game the same way they play every game, by scoring a lot of points no matter what. The Saints defense is pretty bad, lucky for them they aren’t nearly as bad as the Eagles offense. The Eagles and their, interesting, defense won’t have what it takes to stop Drew Brees and company Monday night. We’ll all be watching Andy Reid for any hint of expression. Saints will win this one.

Here’s to hoping we have some great games this week! Comebacks and upsets!

Week 9 Picks: Xavier Huntington

November 1, 2012 Leave a comment

Xavier Huntington:

After possibly being the only person in the known universe to pick the Browns to win last week why would you go anyplace else to find out ahead of time who’s going to win?

Xavier Huntington’s Week 9 Picks:

Thursday Night Football
Chiefs vs. Chargers – Chiefs, Neither of these teams is really any good this year. No real reason for pickings the Chiefs, in fact since they are on the road the safer bet is probably the Chargers, I just have a feeling the Chiefs win this one.

Sunday Football
Dolphins vs. Colts – Dolphins, This Dolphins team is quietly good. I think they continue their winning ways against the Colts with Andrew Luck still trying to find his place in the NFL.

Bills vs. Texans – Texans, I want to say Bills for some reason but keep second guessing myself. The Texans are one of the best teams in football while the Bills are… not. Could the Bills win? Sure, but they shouldn’t.

Cardinals vs. Packers – Packers, The Cards continue their losing streak. This is a game of strength against strength. The Cardinals suffocating defense against the Packers high scoring offensive assault, and the Packers lackluster defense against a Cardinals offense that just cant get anything going. I expect the Packers to come out on top.

Panthers vs. Redskins – Redskins, but really who cares, RG3 (this years golden boy) vs. Cam Newton (the golden boy of yesteryear). Regardless of who wins it should be one of the most entertaining games of the season. In the end I give the advantage to the Redskins.

Bears vs. Titans – Bears, They are currently one of the best teams in the NFL with a solid defense and an offense that is still trying to find itself but definitely capable of streaks of brilliance. I expect one of those streaks against a weak Titans team.

Ravens vs. Browns – Ravens, The Browns will keep it close, but the Ravens are superior in every aspect of the game.

Broncos vs. Bengals – Broncos, Both these teams defenses have fallen since last year, this should be an entertaining offensive game. Peyton Manning has looked pretty good since coming back from neck surgery, with the exception of some wobbly passes. I like the chemistry between the Red Rifle and AJ Green.

Lions vs. Jaguars – Lions, They seem to be finally finding themselves on offense (perhaps a little late), and I expect that to continue against the Jaguars, who may or may not have MJD.

Vikings vs. Seahawks – Seahawks, I think? I don’t really know about this one. It should be close.

Buccaneers vs. Raiders – Buccaneers, just because the Raiders are bad.

Steelers vs. Giants – Giants, Im not sure why but I always seem to want the Giants to lose lately. I’ve been picking against them for like 5 weeks solid now so Im switching it up and not sure what sort of results im really hoping for. If they win, I picked right, but if they lose they finally freaking lost. It’s win win.

Sunday Night Football
Cowboys vs. Falcons – Falcons, The Cowoys are just too inconsistent. You never know which team is going to show up. I expect them to be brilliant for a portion of the game and utterly terrible for the rest of it. The Falcons haven’t been the picture of consistency either, but when it comes down to it they’ve been able to muster whatever it is they need to win the close games.

Monday Night Football
Eagles vs. Saints – Saints, While they probably wont make the playoffs this year they should beat an Eagles team in freefall.

Week 8 Picks: Wayne Dobbs

October 25, 2012 Leave a comment

Well I had a positive ratio last week, but I’m still behind Xavier. He picked some upsets and at first I laughed but once I made my own picks I began to see what he was seeing. Not sure I trust some of the better teams to win on the road this weekend.

Wayne Dobbs’ Week 8 Picks:

Thursday Night Football
Buccaneers(2-4) vs Vikings(5-2): Vikings – I’m not sure about this game. If the good Buccaneers show up, this should be their game on points regardless of the Vikings defense. If the good Vikings show up they should be able to keep this game around 20 points and get to the quarterback often enough. I’m going Vikings because they have been much more consistent, they are at home, and their record is much better.

Sunday Football
Falcons(6-0) vs Eagles(3-3): Falcons – Falcons in this one. The Eagles have a good defense, but they lost their defensive coordinator. Between Michael Vick and the Falcons defense, the Eagles might not have a drive without a turnover. Falcons 7-0. Did I mention I’m starting the Falcons defense on my fantasy team this week?

Dolphins(3-3) vs Jets(3-4): Jets – I have to pick the Jets in this, I have to. They usually don’t reproduce after scoring more than 25 points, but the Dolphins have them angry and chomping at the bit. Likewise most likely the opposite direction as well. Picking the Jets because I’m a Jets fan. Go Jets! No hot sauce!

Patriots(4-3) vs Rams(3-4): Patriots – The Patriots should be able to pull this one off. Bill Belichick is smarter than everyone on the Rams sideline. Offensive weapons favor the Patriots a little too much in this one.

Redskins(3-4) vs Steelers(3-3): Steelers – The Redskins have been coming back and keeping games close or blowing leads, I’m not sure what they’re going to do besides score some points. The Steelers have Ben Roethlisberger and a tough defense, and they are at home.

Seahawks(4-3) vs Lions(2-4): Seahawks – The Seahawks should be able to pull out a low-scoring win over the Lions, as in the Lions will have a low score. Road wins are fun.

Chargers(3-3) vs Browns(1-6): Chargers – I’m picking the Chargers in this one because they have been playing fairly well despite playing fairly bad, while the Browns lost their run game most likely for this week as well so their passing game shouldn’t be too hard to cover. Excluding of course Brandon Weeden to Josh Gordon once or twice this game.

Panthers(1-5) vs Bears(5-1): Bears – The Bears should win this game, and it will make the Panthers look bad. Which is bad, because the Panthers need a win coming off a loss after their bye week.

Colts(3-3) vs Titans(3-4): Titans – The Titans should win this game for a few reasons. Besides being at home, they can score points, a lot of points. The Colts also don’t appear to be a good team minus the sporadic appearances of Andrew Luck, which do create highlights.

Jaguars(1-5) vs Packers(4-3): Packers – The Packers at home to the Jaguars, I like this matchup. I’m still not starting the Packers defense in fantasy, but I like this matchup. No MJD or Gabbert for the Jaguars. Packers should win this game handily.

Raiders(2-4) vs Chiefs(1-5): Raiders – I think the Chiefs had better get used to the idea of 1-6. The Raiders aren’t a horrible team, only a bad team. The Chiefs right now are a worse team. Brady Quinn won’t be able to put this offense together in team to beat a Raiders team that only thrives on teams that are worse than themselves.

Giants(5-2) vs Cowboys(3-3): Giants – The Giants are good on the road against teams that should win at home. Sorry Cowboys, a negative record is just around the corner. Look for more Eli Manning deep passes.

Sunday Night Football
Saints(2-4) vs Broncos(3-3): Broncos – The Saints do score a lot of points, but the Broncos are at home. The Broncos are also playing better recently, and the Saints defense gives up more points than any other team. This should be a good game. Sunday Night Football is the best.

Monday Night Football
49ers(5-2) vs Cardinals(4-3): 49ers – This game could end up going to the Cardinals for a number of reasons, from their defense that keeps teams in range to their offense that started to click at one point thus having potential, but I think the 49ers can win this on their offense alone if they choose to. The question is, will they choose to this week? Not to mention the 49ers defense, which I just mentioned, is one of the best.

This should be a good week of football. Hopefully Xavier doesn’t end up being right, again, or I’ll never catch up.

Week 8 Picks: Xavier Huntington

October 24, 2012 Leave a comment

Xavier didn’t write an intro. He is whooping me in the picks count so far as well. I asked him about all of the upsets he picked this week, his answer was that they are at home and he doesn’t expect all of them to be right, so, here’s his picks:

Xavier Huntington’s Week 8 Picks:

Thursday Night Football
Buccaneers vs. Vikings – Vikings, I think this one will be close. The Vikings have been a surprising team atop the NFC North this year, and I think they continue their winning ways. The Bucs have kept each game close in their losses, but I think their trend of losing a late game lead continues this week.

Sunday Football
Colts vs. Titans – Colts, I think Chris Johnson regresses to having very few rushing yards for about the 80th time this year. Luck has a solid game against what the Titans have been calling a defense since the departure of Jeff Fisher.

Patriots vs. Rams – Rams, This Pats team has a lot of question marks, and from a fantasy perspective a lot of mouths to feed on offense. Their continued ability to win masks the problems they are having defensively. The Patriots have already lost to 2 NFC west teams previously. I think the Rams pull off the “upset” by getting in Brady’s face and taking him off his game.

Dolphins vs. Jets – Dolphins, The Dolphins are a team performing well under the radar. With no super star names they have been consistently winning somehow. Despite Sanchez performing well against the Patriots he will go back to his old Sanchez ways and fail to throw a touch down or eclipse 200 yards passing.

Falcons vs. Eagles – Eagles, The Falcons have won their last 3 games by very small margins. This Eagles team, if it can clean up the turnovers on offense is pretty good. Perhaps the firing of the defensive coordinator will reengergize their stagnant offense?

Redskins vs. Steelers – Steelers, A gut call more than anything. I don’t feel as though the Redskins can maintain a winning streak, while the Steelers, while aging now, have proven year after year that they can.

Panthers vs. Bears – Bears, The Bears have been a dominant team this year, riding superior special teams, an always tough defense, and an improved offense to 5 victories. They will continue their winning ways even against the electric Cam Newton, who is in a significant sophomore slump, and has yet to convince me that his rookie year wasn’t a fluke.

Chargers vs. Browns – Browns, The Chargers have not been playing well to this point, and even when they are playing well they are supremely boring to watch. Sorry Chargers fans. I think the Browns pull off the upset here.

Seahawks vs. Lions – Lions, Just a gut feeling really. All their wins, and even their losses have involved late 4th quarter comebacks. I think the offense gets in synch earlier in the game and runs away with it. Even with the Seahawks suffocating defense.

Jaguars vs. Packers – Packers, Should be an easy win. I expect the Packers to run away with it and move to their ground game (?) late in the 3rd.

Raiders vs. Chiefs – Chiefs, I have a really hard time calling Raiders games, even when they are “improving” they never seem to. Against a nearly winless Chiefs team I really have no vested interest in this game (exception being Jamaal Charles). The Raiders won last week and I don’t think the possess the ability to win 2 in a row. Plus they are at Arrowhead Stadium, where the Chiefs have a significant homefield advantage. May not so much over a good team, but against the Raiders I’ll take the Chiefs at home. This likely works the other way around too.

Giants vs. Cowboys – Cowboys, I think the Cowboys are seeking vengeance for their week 1 loss to the Giants. I have a hard time believing in either of these teams for the long run. They both fluctuate too much between great and dismal.

Sunday Night Football
Saints vs. Broncos – Saints, Can anyone stop Drew Brees? The Saints are on a 2 game winning streak (finally) and I don’t think the Broncos stop them, even after their bye. Peyton has been getting most of his numbers in garbage time, making games look closer than they really are. They lose this game, but still end up winning the division.

Monday Night Football
49ers vs. Cardinals – 49ers, The 49ers have more than a week to prepare for this game and I think Harbaugh has them ready for it. After a hot 4-0 start the Cardinals have followed that up with 3 straight losses. Divisional games are always close and both these teams play stifling defense. However the 49ers have an offensive identity that actually exists (except on 3rd downs) where as the Cardinals really don’t. The Cardinals will go as far as their offense will take them this year. See: Not far.

Week 7 Picks: Wayne Dobbs

October 18, 2012 Leave a comment

Been away for a couple of days, and I missed Xavier Huntington’s wedding. But I’m back posting just in time for the picks Thursday!

Wayne Dobbs’ Week 7 Picks

Thursday Night Football
Seahawks (4-2) vs 49ers (4-2): 49ers – The Seahawks defense and run game have been solid almost every game this year. This will be a tough game, but the team with the best rushing should pull it out. With Brandon Jacobs active for this game, look for the 49ers backfield to gash, mash and slash the Seahawks defense.

Sunday Football
Cardinals (4-2) vs Vikings (4-2): Vikings – The Vikings are turning out to be quite the team, while the Cardinals continue to skirt by with average play and low scoring games. The Vikings will prevail in this one, their score ending somewhere in the 20s.

Ravens (5-1) vs Texans (5-1): Ravens – This is a tough game, with the slightly weaker Texans offense with no injuries or the slightly weaker Ravens defense with injuries. Between Joe Flacco becoming a QB this season, and Ray Rice doing what Ray Rice does, this game should go to the Ravens.

Browns (1-5) vs Colts (2-3): Colts – The Colts are the better team, everyone would agree. The Browns have been scoring against defenses better than the Colts, but the Colts defense plays close to their offense. As long as Andrew Luck can make something happen, this should be the Colts game to lose.

Redskins (3-3) vs Giants (4-2): Redskins – My upset of the week! The Redskins will go into MetLife Stadium and beat the Giants. That is all.

Titans (2-4) vs Bills (3-3): Bills – I am tempted to go with a better all-around team in the Titans, but the Bills have the pieces to explode against teams in the middle of the pack as far as performance goes. No matter how many turnovers they have, a stellar offense should keep the Bills scoring more than the Titans can handle, unless the Titans think the Bills are the Lions.

Saints (1-4) vs Buccaneers (3-3): Buccaneers – The Saints should beat the Bucs, but I smell a 20-something point game from the Saints. As long as the Buccaneers can do anything they did last week, they can win this game.

Packers (3-3) vs Rams (3-3): Packers – The Rams defense is great this year. The Packers offense has woken up this year, and is great every year. The Packers have too many weapons, when they play well and right now they are playing well, for the Rams to handle.

Cowboys (2-3) vs Panthers (1-4): Cowboys – The Panthers haven’t had a great game all season, their best was a loss to the Falcons at the end of the game. The Cowboys have been falling apart this year, but they have picked up the pieces after their bye week and should be coming into Pantherville guns-a-blazing.

Jaguars (1-4) vs Raiders (1-4): Raiders – The Raiders aren’t as bad of a team as they appear to be. The Raiders defense, despite being 32nd in the league, can create turnovers and cause receivers issues with their secondary. The real two reasons the Raiders win this game? The Jaguars don’t score points, the Raiders do. No matter who either team has been playing.

Jets (3-3) vs Patriots (3-3): Patriots – I want my Jets to score big again, but it just isn’t going to happen. The Patriots produce numbers on the defensive side of the ball, and not just points scored on them by opposing teams which they appear to be competing for. Between Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and Rex Ryan’s Hot Sauce, this game should go to the Patriots. The Patriots actually show results on the field when a guy like Rex sends bench players at his guy’s knees, so, if the Jets know what’s good for them they won’t do anything dirty. Pissing off some of the best opposition in the league isn’t exactly a fantastic idea, like I said, they respond with performance on the field.

Sunday Night Football
Steelers (2-3) vs Bengals (3-3): Bengals – The Steelers are the better team, but the Bengals will win this one. That’s just all there is to it.

Monday Night Football
Lions (2-3) vs Bears (4-1): Bears – The Lions haven’t quite gotten into a stride yet this season, while the Bears and their monster of a defense have been eating teams alive, though the scores don’t quite show it that way. The Lions and the Bears are two of those teams that everyone enjoys watching play, they go at each other. Bears are the better team and should win this game.

Week 7 Picks: Xavier Huntington

October 18, 2012 Leave a comment

By Xavier Huntington

Here are my picks for NFL week 7. I didn’t submit any picks last week because I was busy getting hitched. Im back in the swing of things and plan to pick to perfection from here on out.

Xavier Huntington’s Week 7 Picks:

Thursday Night Football

49ers vs Seahawks, 49ers: The 49ers coming off a terrible homefield loss to the Giants will have something to prove. The Seahawks have been playing well and are challenging for the division. A low scoring, defensive affair. I give the 9ers the edge at home.

Sunday

Browns vs Colts, Colts: Luck continues to play well against a sad Browns team.

Packers vs Rams, Packers: Chance Aaron Rodgers could be more or less shut down again against a tough Rams defense in St. Louis. The Rams however don’t have enough offensive capability to keep up even with a less than stellar performance from GB.

Cardinals vs Vikings, Vikings: This team is very under the radar. A good defense and an offense that is coming into it’s own with Ponder at the helm. The cardinals defense, while still good has started to fall off a bit. The majority of their wins have been by less than a touchdown, that kind of luck wont continue, especially with their dreadful offense.

Redskins vs. Giants, Redskins: Close divisional game, I think the Skins w/ RG3 pull a fast one here.

Titans vs. Bills, Bills: The Titans have not played well this year, I expect that trend to continue against the potentially dangerous offense of the Bills

Saints vs. Bucs, Saints: Coming off their bye I think the Saints are well prepared for this Bucs team

Cowboys vs. Panthers, Cowboys: The up and down Cowboys should pull out the narrow win over Cam and the Panthers, this is not based on any logic.

Ravens vs. Texans, Texans: After their blowout loss to the Packers the Texans are at home w/something to prove against the 5-1 Ravens missing the majority of their defensive nucleus.

Jaguars vs. Raiders, Who cares: Im sure someone does, but it aint me. Both these teams suck. I guess I’ll go with the Jags because they have MJD and Palmer likes to throw interceptions.

Jets vs. Patriots, Patriots: At home in Boston they are hard to beat. I expect the Jets to play well against their rival and Rex Ryan’s nemesis, or if not play well then at least keep the game competitive

Steelers vs. Bengals, Bengals: I still like this Bengals team, especially the combo of Dalton and Green, the Steelers are not the same team, especially defensively, that they have been for the past decade.

Monday Night Football

Lions vs. Bears, Bears: The Bears are as complete a team, offensively and defensively, as they’ve ever been. The Lions seem to have regressed from last year. Give me the Bears at home in this one, thanks.

Week 3 Picks: Xavier Huntington(ham)

September 23, 2012 Leave a comment

Undisputed picks champion Xavier Huntington(ham) has his first picks list of the year. I am posting this for him because one he didn’t write a ‘Hello, How Are You, Im Fine Thanks For Asking’ introduction to his picks. For the record, he got in his Giants vs. Panthers pick before the game Thursday, although I am not sure why he refers to some teams by their name and to others by their city, but when you are the reigning picks champion you can pretty much do whatever you want.

So here it is, the first picks posting of the year, two weeks late.

Xavier Huntington’s Week 3 picks:

Giants (1-1) vs. Carolina (1-1) – My pick: Giants, Even with Cam Newton and the resurgence of Steve Smith I just have a hard time thinking of the Panthers as good or competitive team. The Giants haven’t looked great except for that half against the Buccaneers, but I think they show up for this game.

Saints (0-2) vs. Chiefs (0-2) – My pick: Saints, This one came down to homefield advantage for me. Arrowhead is a tough place to play and Brees is not as dominant outdoors. Luckily, he’s home in the Superdome. I think the Chiefs actually play them close, but NO comes out with the win.

Rams (1-1) vs. Bears (1-1) – My Pick: Bears, A loss to the Packers in a surprisingly defense filled game and a dominant win over the Colts in Andrew Luck’s first professional game, or a close loss to an up and coming team Lions team, and a close win over RG3 in his first professional game. I think it’s close with the Bears out on top, and hopefully a big game from Brandon Marshall, GO BM!

Bills (1-1) vs. Browns (0-2) – My Pick: Bills, While I think Cleveland eventually wins a game or two, I don’t think it is this one. Sorry Cleveland fans.

Jets (1-1) vs. Dolphins (1-1) – My Pick: Jets, Reggie Bush is good, but Miami is still bad. They got rid of their best cornerback, so even Sanchez should be able to dissect that secondary.

49ers (2-0) vs. Vikings (1-1) – My Pick: 49ers, Their defense should be able to stop a recently injured Adrien Peterson and they have enough offensive weapons to wear down the Vikings defense.

Buccaneers (1-1) vs. Cowboys (1-1) – My Pick: Cowboys, The Buccaneers should not have as much success in the passing game as last week, conversely the Cowboys should expect more.

Jaguars (0-2) vs. Colts (1-1) – My Pick: Colts, They aren’t as bad as everyone seems to think. The Jaguars are. Luck appears to be past the jitters he had in game 1.

Bengals (1-1) vs. Redskins (1-1) – My Pick: Bengals, The Bengals have a surprisingly solid defense, even if they haven’t demonstrated it thus far. The Redskins have some key defensive players missing. I think this will be a big game for the BJGE

Lions (1-1) vs. Titans (0-2) – My Pick: Lions, Another lame game for Chris Johnson up against the Lions #6 run D. The Titans defense has not demonstrated a defense capable of stopping the aerial attack of the Lions. Calvin Johnson’s first big game of the season. After which he dies of a happiness heart attack; Madden Cursed.

Falcons (2-0) vs. Chargers (2-0) – My Pick: Falcons, Probably a big game for Julio Jones since Roddy White had a big one last week. I’ve figured out the pattern see… The Chargers don’t have enough offensive weaponry to contend with this improved Falcons D.

Eagles (2-0) vs. Cardinals (2-0) – My Pick: Cardinals, Gut call really. I think they pull off the upset at the end of the game.

Steelers (1-1) vs. Raiders (0-2) – My Pick: Steelers, I think The Raiders do not pull off the upset at the end of the game. Or any part of the game for that matter.

Texans (2-0) vs. Broncos (1-1) – My Pick: Broncos, For no reason

Patriots (1-1) vs. Ravens (1-1) – My Pick: Ravens, The Ravens have a good defense with the ability to rattle Brady, which is really all it takes. The Patriots Defense is improved, but they have no answer for Torrey Smith or Ray Rice in this game

Packers (1-1) vs. Seahawks (1-1) – My Pick: Packers, Rodgers and the offense gel to a level never seen before and become Overlord of Earth. The Seahawks stout D is vaporized.
