NFL PICKS WEEK 8
Win Loss = 60-47
This is one of those weeks that should be easy because most games seem so obvious. That’s a big red flag. Waving. One side says “pick me”, the other says, “tricked you, you suck.
That being said, I’m going in anyway:
(picks in pink)
Carolina over Tampa Bay
Thursday Night – got that one.
San Fran over Jacksonville in London
British people will still not get American Football after this one. Ex-Pats might have some ‘splaining to do.
Detroit over Dallas
Megatron and Reggie Bush have their work cut out for them on home field. Dallas can be a trial for many teams. Actually in the pool I’m in I don’t have the balls to pick this one so I’m boxing it. It should be a fight – maybe a few fist fights as well.
Philly over the New York Giants
Both unpredictable teams that are never consistently off or on – taking Philly at home and hopefully Vick propelled.
Kansas City Chiefs over Cleveland
It’s hard to get past the Kansas D even though they’ve used it to stop less than stellar opponents. Cleveland is going to have to try really really hard.
New Orleans Saints over Buffalo
You know I’m taking the Saints
New England over Miami
This is a long time rivalry, Miami has trouble against the Patriots and Tom Brady, despite that fact that he’s just bought a very cool New York condo, is probably supremely pissed about losing to the Jets last week.
Cincinnati over The New York Jets
Cinci hasn’t lost at home yet and The Jets have managed to lose every other game – on that scientifically gathered data, I’m taking The Bengals
Pittsburgh Steelers over Oakland Raiders
Both AFC both need the game – Pittsburgh always needs it more. Game should be low scoring and Oakland can win at home against a crap team. Pittsburgh has been improving – AKA – getting their shit game together – of late so on the winds of possibility it’s the Steelers
Denver Broncos over Washington
Will Peyton Manning lose to another rookie QB (compared to him they’re almost all rookies)? Two weeks in a row? At home? I think not.
Atlanta Falcons over Arizona Cardinals
Even a psychic couldn’t pick this one with any certainty. A psycho perhaps, but I am neither, certainly not on the same day anyway.
Green Bay Packers over Minnesota
Minnesota have lost the plot. I’ll leave it at that.
Seattle Seahawks over St. Louis Rams
Seattle is just a better team. Period. I hope.
