Thank you to the Bengals and Redskins for teaching us another valuable confidence pool lesson last week! While neither of the team lost, everyone else does! With the tie, since no team won, nobody gets any points for that game.
Sure we had to sit through 75 minutes of two field goals apiece to receive this lesson – but a lesson nonetheless!
Sound familiar? It was the exact same thing that I said last week. Consecutive weeks with a tie (with almost a second tie last week) don’t deserve new material!
Week 9 – HERE WE GO!!!!!!!!!
(HOME TEAM IN ALL CAPS)
13 – KANSAS CITY over Jacksonville – Remember how we all said that the Jaguars were ready to make a run after their off-season? Well, maybe next year.
12 – Dallas over CLEVELAND – Last week’s home game against the Jets was the Browns chance. My BOLD PREDICTION for this week is that THE BROWNS WILL FINISH THE SEASON WINLESS.
11 – MINNESOTA over Detroit – The Vikings have shown some vulnerability after their undefeated start. They could use a home game against the struggling Lions.
10 – GREEN BAY over Indianapolis – Even in defeat the Packers are showing us that they are still NFC contenders.
9 – SEATTLE over Buffalo – New England exposed so much about the Bills last week. Seattle should be able to take advantage of that as well.
8 – NEW YORK GIANTS over Philadelphia – Remember when the Eagles were undefeated and a certain writer predicted that the league was about to figure out Carson Wentz? Well I do!
7 – New Orleans over SAN FRANCISCO – Remember when this was an exciting playoff game? Now, not so much.
6 – Carolina over LOS ANGELES – Remember when…ok, can’t really do a “remember when” with a team in a new city.
5 – Atlanta over TAMPA BAY – The week starts off with a solid NFC South matchup. The Falcons could put a strangle hold on the division with a road win here.
4 – MIAMI over New York Jets – Miami is the home team so they get to win this one.
3 – OAKLAND over Denver – The last game the Broncos lost last season before winning the Super Bowl was against the Raiders…just saying.
2 – BALTIMORE over Pittsburgh – If Roethlisberger ends up playing, keep this game on the 2-point line but switch to a Steelers win.
1 – Tennessee over SAN DIEGO – The Titans may end up being what divisional foe Jacksonville was supposed to be this year – and they didn’t have to waste a ton of money in the off-season to do it.
