Last week: 10-3
Week 8 Recap: The Detroit Lions start the season 5-2 for the first time since the year 2000. I still don’t believe it…The London game was so sloppily played, we don’t deserve to play outside of our own country. Besides, is it really that great when two teams are playing and the crowd is wearing every jersey in the NFL? It was between the Giants and the Dolphins, not the Colts versus the Steelers!…Brett Favre, the leader on my fantasy team and the reason why I missed out on my $20 Pick ‘Em pool at work. Thanks, Number Four!
Week 9 Picks:
Detroit (5-2) over Denver (3-4) – I said I couldn’t believe it. I won’t believe it after this game when they stand at 6-2 and knowing that Jon Kitna‘s the starting quarterback.
Atlanta (1-6) over San Francisco (2-5) – It’s a good thing St. Louis and Miami don’t play each other this season. We wouldn’t want to take anything away from this big game.
Cincinnati (2-5) over Buffalo (3-4) – The most underachieving team in the NFL needs to shape up now before they head to Baltimore next week.
Tennessee (5-2) over Carolina (4-3) – Vince Young is officially a piece of crap and the most overrated quarterback. He’s putting up numbers similar to Tarvaris Jackson right now and he’s not even running like he used to. His coin as a winning quarterback will come to an end sooner or later.
Green Bay (6-1) over Kansas City (4-3)
San Diego (4-3) over Minnesota (2-5) – San Diego, riding a solid 3-game winning streak, will see this as a tuneup against their big matchup against Indianapolis next week.
New Orleans (3-4) over Jacksonville (5-2) – Drew Brees won’t make mistakes like Jeff Garcia did against the Jacksonville ‘D’ last week, and Quinn Gray won’t be as efficient as he was last week, as New Orleans wins its fourth in a row.
Washington (4-3) over NY Jets (1-7) – New quarterback, same story, as Kellen Clemens will drop the Jets to Notre Dame’s record.
Tampa Bay (4-4) over Arizona (3-4) – The Bucs have lost two straight and have really looked flat their last four games. They need this win before they head into the bye.
Cleveland (4-3) over Seattle (4-3) – Derek Anderson has thrust himself among the top five quarterbacks in the league and should continue his strong showing, hitting favorite receiver, Braylon Edwards, in the end zone along the way.
New England (8-0) over Indianapolis (7-0) – Nothing to take away from the Colts, but the Patriots have just been so dominant in every facet of every game that that margin gives them the edge heading into the Game of the Year. Brady over Peyton in a classic back-and-forth shootout.
Oakland (2-5) over Houston (3-5) – Josh McCown is back but LaMont Jordan and Justin Fargas will be the reason the black and silver roll over the Texans.
Dallas (6-1) over Philadelphia (3-4) – Terrell Owens is back in Philly. Donovan McNabb talks big during the week, saying that the Eagles are still the team to beat. Roy Williams snaps back at him and will now probably horse collar McNabb for a sack and fumble. The plot is there. Oh, a typical NFC East matchup.
Pittsburgh (5-2) over Baltimore (4-3) – Another great divisional game on prime time lands us in the AFC North, where the defensive powerhouses should put on a show on MNF.
