New England Patriots at New York Giants. Could the Giants do it again? They have beaten the Patriots the last three times they played them. And the Giants have done so for one simple reason: the y are not afraid of New England. Coach Tom Coughlin is a tough, crusty old dude who is not afraid of his counterpart Bill Bellicheat. Eli Manning is not intimidated by Tom Brady.
The only question about the Giants is two-fold: do they have the horses on offense to score enough points and do they have the rough-riders on defense to keep Brady and Gronk at bay? One paper, they do not. But guess what, the game is not played on paper. And you know what else, I am picking a Giants upset. And I. Cannot. Wait. Giants 24, Patriots 23.
Jets over Bills (I wonder if Geno Smith will be on the field when IK Enemkpali participates in the coin toss…)
Ass-Whooping of the Week
Packers over Lions. Green Bay lost back-to-back games to two of the best teams in the league. The woeful Lions coming to Lambeau Field is the best medicine for A-a-ron Rodgers and the Packers. Look for the Pack to hang damn near close to 40 on the Lions.
Cowboys over Buccaneeers
Panthers over Titans
Rams over Bears
Saints over Redskins
Eagles over Dolphins
Steelers over Browns
Ravens over Jaguars
Raiders over Vikings
Broncos over Chiefs
Seahawks over Cardinals
Bengals over Texans (say it with me #WhoDey Nation: “9-0 bitches!!!”)
Record last week: 8-5 (Damn upsets!!!)
Year to date: 90-42 (I’m still cool, but those damn upsets tho…)
