Here I will try and do my best to predict the winners of this weekend's slate of games.
If I were a betting man, these would be my picks for this weekend.
|Thursday, 8:20pm||Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Minnesota Vikings||Vikings Win|
|Sunday, 1:00pm||Carolina Panthers at Chicago Bears||Bears Win|
|San Diego Chargers at Cleveland Browns||Browns Win|
|Seattle Seahawks at Detroit Lions||Seahawks Win|
|Jacksonville Jaguars at Green Bay Packers||Packers Win|
|Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans||Colts Win|
|New England Patriots at St. Louis Rams||Patriots Win|
|Miami Dolphins at New York Jets||Jets Win|
|Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles||Eagles Win|
|Washington Redskins at Pittsburgh Steelers||Redskins Win|
|Sunday, 4:05pm||Oakland Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs||Raiders Win|
|Sunday, 4:25pm||New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys||Giants Win|
|Sunday, 8:20pm||New Orleans Saints at Denver Broncos||Broncos Win|
|Monday, 8:30pm||San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals||49ers Win|
I'll just explain a few of my more likely to be controversial picks. First, I have a good feeling about the Browns this week. Mostly because they're at home, the Chargers are terrible (I expect Joe Haden to have like 50 interceptions) and I hate Philip Rivers' face. Second, I think the Eagles pull the upset. Michael Vick's been pretty terrible lately, as has Andy Reid, so naturally they'll pull one out of nowhere to hold onto their jobs for another week. Third, I think Robert Griffin III is going to run all over the old and injured Pittsburgh defense and utterly destroy them on the ground and in the air. Fourth, between the Raiders and the Chiefs, one of them has to win, I guess. Fifth, I think the Saints/Broncos game will be a shootout, but the Saints defense is so godawful, they'll make a bigger mistake first.
