Week 9 NFL Predictions
Some hastily assembled picks this week. Because I'm busy. And tired. Thankfully there are only 13 games this week.
Panthers 30, Saints 20 -- Thanks for being my upset special last week, New Orleans. But, playing on the road you might as well be the Raiders.
Bengals 28, Jaguars 21 -- Jacksonville: Repeat last sentence from previous thumbnail.
Browns 42, Buccaneers 31 -- Johnny Manziel launches another embarrassing tantrum when he's informed he can't trade himself to Tampa Bay.
Cardinals 21, Cowboys 10 -- Tony Romo, having an MVP-caliber season, throws out his back against Redskins, makes a Willis Reed-Curt Schilling-type comeback back into the game, just in time to blow it in OT. Nice job.
Eagles 34, Texans 24 -- Hi, we're the Houston Texans. We love to beat up on bad teams but we can't beat anybody good.
Chiefs 27, Jets 7 -- Screw you, Rex Ryan. I believed that you guys weren't that bad and picked you against the Bills, and you get smoked. Never again.
Dolphins 24, Chargers 14 -- That sound you hear is me jumping off the San Diego bandwagon.
Vikings 44, Redskins 38 -- RGIII back? Redskins wouldn't be the dysfunctional bunch they are if he won in his return.
49ers 21, Rams 20 -- Speaking of dysfunctional bunches, I present to you the St. Louis Rams.
Broncos 30, Patriots 26 -- My heart says New England. But I just can't. Not quite yet.
Seahawks 33, Raiders 3 -- When was the last time the defending Super Bowl champions were playing a 4:00 game and would be seen by about 1% of the national offense?
Ravens 23, Steelers 20 -- Ben Roethlisberger has had a Jekyll & Hyde season. Last week he threw 6 TD passes. You do the math.
Colts 27, Giants 19 -- At least when Eli Manning loses to the Colts now, he's not losing to his big bro anymore.
LAST WEEK: 10-5
SEASON TO DATE: 77-43-1
