Was able to salvage a 9-7 record last week in quite possibly the most challenging week for NFL pick ‘ems this season. They say if you can pick 60% of the games, you can make a pretty good living off of this stuff. Coincidentally, I’m currently batting .607…but I’ll keep my day job. Looking to do even better than that this week, how about you?
Last week: 9-7-0 Season: 37-24-0
Panthers v Steelers
Pre-Game: If I was a gambler, and if I owned a house…I would bet a house on this one.
Post-Game: I won’t dignify this game with a response.
Cowboys v Cardinals
Pre-Game: Merry Christmas…once again we get to watch the Cowboys on national television. At least there will be something to distract us.
Post-Game: I guess it was an exciting game, but makes me dislike the Cowboys even more.
Patriots v Bills
Pre-Game: The Pats have a huge headstart for “Team of the Millennium”.
Jets v Bears
Pre-Game: Distractions are mounting for the Jets, but I think they find a way to get it done against an NFC pretender.
Ravens v Browns
Pre-Game: Browns would love to play spoilers, but too much on the line for the Ravens.
Redskins v Jaguars
Pre-Game: The Jags no longer control their own destiny, but should have no problem putting the Skins away at home.
Titans v Chiefs
Pre-Game: Expect 350+ yards rushing in this one; 250 for the Chiefs, 100 for the Titans = Chiefs win.
Lions v Dolphins
Pre-Game: A three game winning streak for the Lions is not happening.
49ers v Rams
Pre-Game: I still think the Rams will take this division – the Seahawks have a much tougher road.
Texans v Broncos
Pre-Game: Neither team has anything to play for – always interesting to see who shows up.
Colts v Raiders
Pre-Game: Much like the Patriots, it is crazy that the Colts will somehow win their division again.
Chargers v Bengals
Pre-Game: The Bengals receivers this year were non-existent – their only chance in this one is the cold weather.
Seahawks v Buccaneers
Pre-Game: The Seahawks have a lot more to play for, but giving the nod to the NFC South over the NFC West.
Giants v Packers
Pre-Game: Aaron Rodgers is back, and he will come through in the clutch.
Vikings v Eagles
Pre-Game: The Vikings have officially unraveled.
Saints v Falcons
Pre-Game: What a great Monday Nighter – going with the home team.
