Game of the Week
New England Patriots at New York Jets. I almost went the homer route in choosing the Steelers-Bengals game, but opted for this one because first place is on the line. Plus, the Pats and Jets flat out hate each other. At any rate, this will be an entertaining game featuring Pats QB (and fantasy stud) Tom Brady and Jets trash-talking coach Rex Ryan.
The key to this victory is how Jets QB Mark Sanchez performs. The Pats could not stop me and 10 other senior citizens from hanging 30 on them, and Sanchez needs to take advantage of that. I think this game will be high-scoring, but the Jets D will be the difference. Jets 27, Patriots 20.
Ass-Whupping of the Week
Ravens over Seahawks. The Ravens are tied with the best record in the AFC. The Seahawks do not know what the hell there are doing. I know this game is in Seattle, but I expect the Ravens to keep rolling. By the way, expect QB Joe Flacco to not regress in taking the next steps. I’d be shocked if that Ravens’ defense allows more than a safety to that alleged “offense” of Seattle’s… Ravens 27, Seahawks 3.
“Who Gives a Damn?” Game of the Week
St. Louis Rams at Cleveland Browns. Looking forward to the St. Louis Cardinals-Cleveland Indians matchup? Oh, that’s right. Hell those teams would score more runs than the football teams’ point total. Unless you are an impulsive gambler or have a social life of a hermit, why tune into this “game”?
Raiders over Chargers (yeah I know what you guys are going to tell me: “the game was played last night ASSHOLE!!!”)
Steelers over Bengals (HUGE AFC North game)
Falcons over Saints (a big NFC South game)
Cowboys over Bills
Colts over Jaguars (the Colts will get the first win of the season against a rookie QB at home)
Broncos over Chiefs (the Tebow machine will roll some more)
Dolphins over Redskins
Eagles over Cardinals
Texans over Buccaneers
Panthers over Titans
Bears over Lions (should be a kick-ass NFC North matchup)
Giants over 49ers
Packers over Vikings

Admittedly, the Falcons are good in the Georgia Dome except when they play the Saints. New Orleans has won 7 of their last 9 matchups with the Falcons. While Drew Brees has been on a roll, Mattie Ice has been on again, off again all season. Also, by adding Darren Sproles in as a running and receiving threat this season – the Saints are a much better team than last year. I see the Saints coming out on top in this NFC South contest – N.O. 27 – ATL 24.
Hmmm, you may be onto something there. The Saints have been such an average road team, it’s might hard to pick them over the Falcons. However, good point…
I am with you on the Jets pick. Patriots first 5 games: offense scores 30+, team goes 4-1. Last 3 games: offense scores 20 or fewer, team goes 1-2. The “unstoppable” Patriot offense is getting figured out and that liability of a defense isn’t going to win them any games. Here’s my picks
I do not think the Pats may make it to the playoffs. Their defense is such a sieve, a team of senior citizens could hang 30 on them (ok, maybe 20).
Nice picks bro!
I’m really looking forward to the Steeler-Bengal game, that will be fun to watch.
Yeah, my wife and I have a “pride bet” on that game. She’s born and raised in Cincinnati (holidays with the in-laws are quite interesting during the season…).
