Week 9 Results (11-2) – Overall (82-41)
An 11-2 week gave me a season win total that doubles my losses. If I had stuck with my gut and picked
Pittsburgh over New York, I could have had it down to a one
defeat week. Oh well, on to the next
Giants @ Bengals
Eli’s struggling, and AJ Green is calling out the Giants’ defense. I think the Giants will overwhelm the Bengals and get back on track. Green doesn’t call out any of his remaining opponents.
Titans @ Dolphins
Look for Ryan Tannehill to have a huge game against one of the league’s worst defenses. The Titans won’t get much going on the ground against the Dolphins.
Lions @ Vikings
No Harvin = not a tough choice for me. Adrian Peterson is a beast, but without the versatile Harvin, look for Christian Ponder to have a long afternoon. Matt Stafford and Calvin Johnson FINALLY hook up for a score.
Bills @ Patriots
Aaron Hernandez won’t be playing, but it won’t matter. The Patriots are coming off their bye, and the Bills wish they could have another week off.
Falcons @ Saints
The perfect season ends in
Maybe I’m looking too much into a strong win against an awful Eagles
team, but the Saints look like they make be gaining some momentum here. Drew Brees throws 4 TDs.
Chargers @ Bucs
If you like passing offenses, tune into this one. The Bucs defense ranks #1 against the run, while the Chargers are no slouch at #4. Josh Freeman remains on fire and leads the Bucs to their fourth win in five games. Vincent Jackson burns his old team for 100 yards receiving.
Broncos @ Panthers
Raiders @ Ravens
No Darren McFadden or Mike Goodson in this one. That’s not a good thing for a Raiders offense facing a reeling Ravens defense. The key to this one is easy – Ray Rice early and often. It’s not pretty, but the Ravens remain on top of the AFC North.
Jets @ Seahawks
Something smells a little funny in this one. Will the bye week help the Jets get on track? I think their only chance is getting to Russell Wilson and forcing the rookie into turnovers. I trust the
Seattle defense, but this will likely be
closer than the experts think.
Cowboys @ Eagles
This is a must-win for both teams.
is annually overrated but has played well enough to win each of their last four
games. Problem is they continually come
up short. Philly is 7 points from being
0-8 instead of 3-5. Their offensive line
is trash, and Michael Vick is failing miserably. The boos rain down loudly on the home team.
Rams @ 49ers
I think this will be the ugliest game of the year. Alex Smith hands off all day, and the Niners win this one by 17.
Texans @ Bears
I can’t wait for this one. I love JJ Watt, but I need to see the Texans win a game like this before I get completely on their bandwagon.
Chicago has won these
types of games before, and I think they do it again on SNF.
Chiefs @ Steelers
I’m in bed by 10:30. So is Romeo Crennel.
