Indy @ Carolina – I think this will be a popular upset pick since Carolina always seems to play them tough. I just don’t think they have a chance. Don’t get me wrong, I think Vinny is great (so washed up he’s not even near the coast anymore. We’re talking tsunami here.) Their D just won’t be able to stop Peyton and his friends. Colts.
Detriot @ Chicago – This is probably the most intriguing match-up this week. Chicago is finally coming around but has taken some punishment at home. Detroit has the Almight looking after them. This the closest thing to actually seeing “Ditka vs. God.” The real fight here will be between Detroits point producing offence and Chicago’s once stingy D. Here, I like da Lions.
Pittsburgh @ Cincy – Pittsburgh will be trying to avenge their defeat last week while Cincy is just trying to play up to their potential. Personally, I hope Carson and Ben will be airing it out all day in a shootout. However it goes down, I take the Steel.
Giants @ Miami – Arsenal would have a better chance than the Fish. G-Men.
Philly @ Minny – Both of these under-acheiving teams need some momentum. Be ready for a heavy dose of Adrian Peterson and Brian Westbrook. Here’s a fun game, try to name as many WR’s as possible from both teams. If you got over 5 you need a new hobby. Igles by a FG.
Cleveland @ St. Louis – Is it possible that this could possibly be the week the Rams remember that they were supposed to be a half-decent team this season? Having Bulger and Jackson on one team has meant a winless start for the Rams and my Fantasy team. I think they will both have to wait at least one more week for that elusive W. Browns.
Oakland @ Tennessee – Vince Young just wins football games. Titans
Buffalo @ Jets – The good news is someone other than the Pats will be getting a win in the AFC East. The bad news is it will probably put you to sleep if you try to watch it. Bills.
Houston @ San Diego – San Diego is so hot right now. Sorry. Chargers.
Jacksonville @ Tampa Bay – Quinn Gray just wins football games. . . in NFL Europe. Bucs.
Washington @ New England – I don’t know if I’ll be able to read Bill Simmons if the Pats go undefeated and the Sox win the Series. The Celtics (all three of them) are looking good as well so he’s going to have to start looking for stuff to whine about elsewhere. Do I think the Redskins can win here? No. Do I want them to injure the Brady so I don’t have to feel inadequate anymore? Yes. Will either happen? Pats.
New Orleans @ San Francisco – A lot of defense in this one. Could be a fun one to watch unless you like either team. I need a huge day from Brees so go Saints.
Green Bay @ Denver – The Bronco’s have been celebrating Halloween all season by pretending to be a different team every week. I really have no idea if they are terrific or pure shit. I can see them getting up for Monday night, especially after the Rox get Rocked tonight. On another note, is Korheiser really starting to get to anyone else? I love PTI but want to strangle him on Monday Nights. Pack.
And the most important game of the week:
The Joey Lions (palestinmiami) vs. balldroppers (fruffy) – After a 1-2 start, the balldroppers have won 4 straight in convincing fashion and now sit just one game behind the first place Lions. We’re both relying heavily on our benches due to bye issues, both my starting RB’s (Edge and Willis) and Romo for the bad guys are sitting. If my QB’s play like they have been I don’t see how he can win, especially with Gore being banged up and Andre Davis remaining in his line-up after being a late scratch. Muah-hahahahha. balldroppers!
