Okay, I have a feeling ties are going to be an issue, SO: every week, along with your picks, you get a free TIE pick.  I just want to see if this has any dividends.

Matt, here's my Thursday pick

  • Vikings at Rams - I think it'll be uphill for the Vikings on the road against a decent Rams team.  Will you be at the game, Matt?
And my TIE pick is Browns-Raiders.  I'm still going to pick a winner of the game but I think if there's a tie, this is the game for it.  Do I still get to call it a correct pick?  Any input on this?  How would it work with head-to-head picks?  Let me know!!

Thursday, September 27

  • Vikings at Rams - DISAGREE!!!  One terrible showing does not a season make.  I actually think it's a great thing that we're playing on a short week.  Do I think we blow them out like we did last year 7-24?  No.  But we're a far better team than we showed vs the Bills. Also of note, the Rams top two corners appear out for this game.  Something to watch.
Yes, I'll be at the game!  Visitors sideline a little off from the 50.  Not front row, but good seats.  Looking forward to it!

Here we go:

Thursday, September 27

  • Vikings at Rams  (Even without the loss, I still wouldn't take the Vikings vs that Rams D)

Sunday, September 30

  • Jets at Jaguars
  • Dolphins at Patriots
  • Eagles at Titans
  • Texans at Colts
  • Bills at Packers
  • Lions at Cowboys
  • Buccaneers at Bears
  • Bengals at Falcons
  • Seahawks at Cardinals
  • Browns at Raiders  (ultimate insult for Gruden will be the Browns coming in and kicking as)
  • Saints at Giants
  • 49ers at Chargers
  • Ravens at Steelers

Monday, October 1

  • Chiefs at Broncos

And if there is a tie this week, Browns and Raiders.  (Browns getting 2 ties in a year, because it would be a Browns thing to do...)

Rams - Picking for the same reason as Kevin.

Jaguars
Patriots
Eagles
Colts
Packers
Cowboys
Buccaneers
Falcons
Cardinals
Browns 
Saints
Chargers (if Jimmy G wasn't done, this wouldn't be my pick)
Steelers

Broncos

The Browns-Raiders game could very well be poop on a stick, but I trust the Browns' QB more than I do the Raiders' head coach right now. (And I hope Mayfield is the real deal.)

So you have two teams with great defense facing each other!  And of course it's a shootout!

Awesome game though.  Rams look legit

Missed last week and Thursday, but I'm just having fun trying to pick winners anyway:

Sunday, September 30

  • Jets at Jaguars - I'll pick the team that beat the Patriots over the team that lost to the Browns...
  • Dolphins at Patriots - The Patriots won't lose 3 in a row...
  • Eagles at Titans - Iggles...
  • Texans at Colts - Not really a Texans fan...
  • Bills at Packers - Yeah, it didn't work out as well last time I picked the Pack...
  • Lions at Cowboys
  • Buccaneers at Bears
  • Bengals at Falcons
  • Seahawks at Cardinals
  • Browns at Raiders
  • Saints at Giants
  • 49ers at Chargers
  • Ravens at Steelers - I can hope The Stillers puts 2 in a row together...

Monday, October 1

  • Chiefs at Broncos - Great Googly Moogly, them Chefs are good...

Sunday, September 30

  • Jets at Jaguars
  • Dolphins at Patriots - The Dolphins always play the Pats tough.  In Miami.  [jinx]NO WAY do the Patriots lose three in a row.[/jinx]
  • Eagles at Titans
  • Texans at Colts - Crossing my fingers.  Low confidence pick.
  • Bills at Packers - Who knows this year?  Jeez.
  • Lions at Cowboys - Classic trap game for the Lions.
  • Buccaneers at Bears - Bears D gets some turnovers.
  • Bengals at Falcons
  • Seahawks at Cardinals
  • Browns at Raiders - AFC North!  Represent!
  • Saints at Giants
  • 49ers at Chargers - No Jimmy G.
  • Ravens at Steelers - Steelers at home, at night, Roethlisberger has a hot hand.  That's about all they have going for them.  Is it enough?

Monday, October 1

  • Chiefs at Broncos - I literally changed this one after pasting it here.  Chiefs will lose eventually; why not in Denver with a rookie QB?
Predicted TIE: Browns at Raiders

Monday Night Drama!

I'm down 0-1 already.  Not good.  And after watching Chicago trounce the Bucs, I am feeling like Pittsburgh should have lost last week and probably will this week :(

  • Browns at Raiders - Wrong
  • Saints at Giants - Right

Watching the Saints sew it up against the Giants in the 4th was classic.  Pound the ground, grind the clock, break the D football.

Steelers scoreless in the second half again.  Ravens took care of business and won handily.

Bah.  We've got some excellent rookie QBs out there.  8-8 this week, 1-2 versus Matt.

Awards!

There were three OT games but no ties.  Not everyone made a tie pick, but of the people who did - all their games went into OT.
 
Well, we got Charlie Brown'd TWICE: by the Bengals over the Falcons in Atlanta, and by the Titans over the SB champion Eagles in Tennessee.

But Rich Marzullo stepped up twice himself, correctly picking a pair of road victories in division contests (Texans over Colts and Ravens over Steelers).  Excellent work!  Bookends!
