Last week I went 8-5, losing the GB @ TB, SD @ NYG, TEN @ SF, DAL @ PHI, and PIT @ DEN games. I'll try to do better this week. I'm off to a bad start though (I had Chicago winning last night). Let's see if I can turn my luck around...
New Orleans @ St. Louis: If elite defenses cannot stop the Saints, how will the Rams contain Drew Brees and the Saints' passing offense? New Orleans improves to 9-0, with a 38-14 win.
Tampa Bay @ Miami: The Bucs are coming off their first win of the season against Green Bay. Unlike the Green Bay offense, Miami's o-line should be able to hold off the Tampa Bay rush. I also don't think the Bucs will be able to stop Miami's stellar rushing attack. 24-13, Miami.
Detroit @ Minnesota: Minnesota has a lot of weapons on offense all of a sudden. Detroit won't be able to stop them, and their offense will also have troubles. Minnesota puts a W in the win column with a 27-10 victory.
Jacksonville @ New York Jets: Winning a conference road game is definitely not an easy accomplishment, especially against an above-average team. The Jags will have a tough time getting anything going on offense, but their defense will help a little. However, the Jets and their home-field advantage take this game, 23-21.
Buffalo @ Tennessee: The Titans look to increase their win streak to 3 games after this match-up with the Bills. With Vince Young back under center, the Titans are in good shape. Tennessee's defense also, should be able to stop the meager Buffalo offense. Titans win, 27-14.
Denver @ Washington: Denver's defense is too good for the Washington's offense. They won't be able to get anything going. Denver should be able to run the ball effectively, and we all know that when the Broncos run the ball well, they win games. Broncos win, 27-13.
Atlanta @ Carolina: The Panthers' defense has been way less than stellar this year, and with Michael Turner coming into town, they won't have much of a chance to win. It doesn't stop at Turner; Atlanta also has a passing attack with Matt Ryan, Roddy White, and Tony Gonzalez. Atlanta wins, 35-31.
Kansas City @ Oakland: To win this game, Kansas City just needs to take care of the football. If they give the Raiders good field position, then Oakland might take advantage. KC wins close, 17-14.
Philadelphia @ San Diego: I hate to give the Chargers the win, but beating the Chargers at home isn't an easy thing to do. If Philly was coming off of a win, I might have given this game to them, but the Eagles are going to have a tough time stopping the SD offense. Chargers, 27-21.
Seattle @ Arizona: The Cardinals' run defense has been great this year, but their pass D, not so much. It doesn't matter because Arizona's offense is just too good for the weak Seattle defense. Arizona should be able to throw the ball all game long. Arizona, 34-20.
Dallas @ Green Bay: In the last few weeks, Dallas has been on fire. Plus, Green Bay's o-line takes a vacation every Sunday, so Dallas should be getting pressure on Aaron Rodgers all day long. Dallas improves their record, they win, 28-24.
New England @ Indianapolis: Indy has been playing great so far, and with this game at home, they shouldn't have a problem taking New England down. Peyton Manning should have a good game and their offense should out-score the Pats. Indy improves to 9-0 with a 34-32 win.
Monday Night Football Game: Baltimore Ravens @ Cleveland Browns: Baltimore's offense has been playing very well the last few weeks. Ray Rice has been very surprising and Joe Flacco has definitely improved from last year. The only question about their offense is their wide receivers. The Ravens' defense has been good this year as well. Ray Lewis and Ed Reed have been their usual selves, and should be able to shut down the Browns' passing attack. Even at home, the Browns won't be able to beat the Ravens. Baltimore takes this one, 38-17.
Hope you enjoyed the picks! Can't wait to hear your feedback.
