Miami and Houston have been confounding me all season.  No clue who wins.  I flipped a coin.

PTP: Saints-Vikings.  Going to the Saints well again.

For starters: I am changing my predicted tie pick.  Going with Steelers-Browns.  If any two teams can tie each other twice in a season...

Sunday, October 28

  • Eaglesat Jaguars (0830) - Lots of intrigue on this one.  The Jags are old hands at the overseas thing, but their locker room in in a state of upheaval and I am hoping Philadelphia will end up on top as a result.
  • Jets at Bears - Bears D, do your thing.
  • Buccaneers at Bengals - Bengals get that chip back on their shoulder.
  • Seahawks at Lions - Just because
  • Broncos at Chiefs - Chiefs-Rams SB could be fun
  • Redskins at Giants - It doesn't matter.  I'm always wrong on Redskins picks.
  • Browns at Steelers - This one should be good.
  • Ravens at Panthers - I kinda hope the Ravens win it on a long FG though.
  • Coltsat Raiders - Andrew Luck is the best QB on a bad team in the NFL.  I think he picks the Raiders apart.
  • Packers at Rams - Rams just play consistently and win.
  • 49ersat Cardinals - Cards are BAD.
  • Saints at Vikings - See, what you do, is, you put this worm on the hook and lower it into the water.  Then: patience.

Monday, October 29

  • Patriotsat Bills - Zzzzz

Hue Jackson finally fired, Gregg Williams (from Bountygate) the interim head coach. Let that sink in for the next round of picks.

After two really bad seasons, NOW they fire him AND their OC?  What's next - making Maysfield run in a circle holding his head to a baseball bat before each down?

If anyone should be firing anybody, it's the Giants.  Saquon Barkley is being wasted over there.  I won't be picking them again this season.

Saints are a solid team, but I think the Rams will be too high octane for them.

Wow, more people took the cards than didn't.  I feel like a proper fool suddenly.

We have a winner this week!  Brian Floyd saw through the veil and picked the Seahawks over the Patriot-shredding Lions.


Wear it with pride, Brian!
