Our confidence pool is now on par with the rest of the league. There are no more teams that I have correctly picked every game and no team that I have not picked a game right on. This is a game of parity, and the confidence pool represents that quite well.
Let’s keep it moving!
Week 7 – HERE WE GO!!!!!!!!!
(HOME TEAM IN ALL CAPS)
15 – CINCINNATI over Cleveland – I feel that any team that plays in Foxboro should be able to play the Browns at home the following week…only seems fair.
14 – GREEN BAY over Chicago – The Packers are down three cornerbacks and two running backs in this short week…luckily they’re hosting the Bears.
13 – ATLANTA over San Diego – Got a Falcons game right! The Chargers will make two in a row pretty easy to obtain.
12 – KANSAS CITY over New Orleans – If Jamaal Charles stays healthy the rest of the year, it will be hard to stop the Chiefs running game.
11 – DENVER over Houston – Brock Osweiler returns to the city that spurned him. Unfortunately the Broncos will show him that they have more than just moved on.
10 – LOS ANGELES over New York Giants – I love that the league returns to LA…and then takes one of the Rams’ home games and makes it a London game.
9 – DETROIT over Washington – A battle of two mediocre teams battling it out…a matchup that will be…meh.
8 – ARIZONA over Seattle – The Cardinals seem to realize they need to ride David Johnson to another divisional championship.
7 – Indianapolis over TENNESSEE – I really expect to see the Colts turn a corner. My BOLD PREDICTION this week is THE COLTS WILL WIN THE AFC SOUTH.
6 – Buffalo over MIAMI – The only reason the Bills aren’t higher on the list is because of the Dolphins beating the Steelers last week … somehow.
5 – New England over PITTSBURGH – Speaking of the Steelers, they’re going up against Brady and the Boys without Big Ben under center.
4 – NEW YORK JETS over Baltimore – So Geno Smith will be starting for the Jets and Joe Flacco missed practice on Wednesday. This could be the worst quarterback matchup of the year/decade.
3 – Oakland over JACKSONVILLE – We found out last week that if you somewhat contain the Raiders’ offense, they are pretty easy to beat. I don’t think the Jaguars have the defense to do that though.
2 – Tampa Bay over SAN FRANCISCO – Colin Kaepernick makes his first start back in the bay. Faithful 49er fans will be reminded quickly that the team has a horrendous quarterback situation right now.
1 – PHILADELPHIA over Minnesota – Two of the league’s surprises meet in what could be the game of the week. I don’t think this Vikings team can handle a game in Philly right now.
