2013 Week 9 NFL Preview

NFL-LogoGame of the Week

Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers.  I love competitive rivalry games, especially when you get the Packers and Bears together.  Those contests are almost always “must-see TV”.  Having said that, Jay Cutler will not be around for a few weeks due to an injury sustained in the Redskins game.  That, coupled with the fact that the Packers will be at home, gives the edge to Green Bay.  Packers 24, Bears 14.

The “Why in the Hell Are You Watching This?” Game of the Week

Philadelphia Eagles at Oakland Raiders.  It’s one thing watching two teams under .500 going at it.  It’s another when it’s devoid of any type of star power (and no, Darren McFadden are NOT stars).  If you are watching this game, you are either a) a REAL diehard; b) are suffering from a gambling addiction or c) in dire need of Dr. Phil.  For what it’s worth, Raiders over Eagles.

Ass-Whooping of the Week

Seahawks over Buccaneers.  I’d be shocked if Tampa is within 20 of Seattle by halftime.  Prayers go to the Buccaneer family.

Upset Special

Browns over Ravens.  I love how Cleveland responded to new QB Jason Campbell vs the Chiefs.  I expect the Browns to rally against the hated (and reeling) Ravens at home.

Thursday’s Game

Bengals over Dolphins

Sunday’s Games

Chiefs over Bills
Cowboys over Vikings
Saints over Jets
Titans over Rams
Redskins over Chargers
Panthers over Falcons
Patriots over Steelers
Colts over Texans

Last week’s record: 12-1 (bad-ass bee-aaaaaaaatch!!!)
Year-to-date: 67-37*
*keep in mind I was on vacation in Mexico during week 2, so my record does not include that week

  1. 12 – 1…..Nice Week 8!!! I mostly agree with your picks for Week 9 too. However, expecting Jason Campbell to put together back-to-back good games wasn’t his M.O. in Oakland. BAL has won their last 11 meetings. Also, it Thad Lewis is healthy on Sunday, I’m picking the Bills to upset the unbeaten Chiefs.
