TNF Week 7 Pick

Jets (+9.5) vs. PATRIOTS
Rex Ryan is 3-9 in his career against the Pats. I don't think the Jets will win, but I wouldn't be surprised if they do. Either way I do think they keep it close. Give me the points and a Jets win, 21-17.

Until next time.

Week 6 NFL Picks

It happened last week for the first time in a long time, if not for the first time ever. You wouldn't know that based on the picks on this site, but I won a weekly pick 'em pool. Of course there were no spreads involved, just straight up. I had one wrong, and looking back, I was dumb for picking against the Patriots at home coming off a blowout loss. I even got extremely close to the total points on Monday Night.

Let's keep that momentum going this week. (HOME TEAM IN CAPS):

TITANS (-4) vs. Jaguars
I picked the Jags and the points last week. That won't be happening this week because I learned my lesson. The Jags are bad.

Ravens (-3.5) vs. BUCCANEERS
The Bucs have played well and kept a lot of their games close. I think this one is no different. Only issue is they lose by 4 points.

JETS (+10) vs. Broncos
This is absolutely a homer pick. I don't think the Jets are going to win the game, but I do see them keeping it a lot closer than last week's debacle. Peyton gets his and Geno looks bad. Enough said.

Lions (+2) vs. VIKINGS
Teddy Bridgewater is back for the Vikes and Calvin Johnson may not play for the Lions. I still think the Lions have enough defense to stop the Vikings.

Patriots (-2.5) vs. BILLS
Brady and company will not lose this game.

Panthers (+7) vs. BENGALS
Give me the points. Bengals without A.J. Green might sputter a little. Points.

Steelers (+1) vs. BROWNS
I like the Browns this year, but I don't think they have enough to beat the Steelers. Not yet, at least.

Packers (-2.5) vs. DOLPHINS
Never pick the Dolphins. Ever.

Chargers (-7) vs. RAIDERS
Tony Sparano is the new coach of the Raiders. Enough said. Chargers win big.

Cowboys (+9.5) vs. SEAHAWKS
This could be the most entertaining game of the week. I like the points and the fact that the Cowboys are playing better and better each week.

CARDINALS (-3.5) vs. Redskins
The battle of the backup QBs. Cardinals defense > Redskins defense.

FALCONS (-3) vs. Bears
The Falcons in the dome are a dangerous team. Outside the dome, not so much.

EAGLES (-2.5) vs. Giants
Eli plays well, but the Giants defense cannot stop LeSean McCoy. Eagles win 34-31.

49ers (-3) vs. RAMS
Another divisional game that will be close. This one will be a defensive slugfest and may not be that easy to watch.

This week: 1-0
Last Week: 8-6-1
Season: 32-28-2

I can't believe it's week 6 already in the NFL. Not only that, it's the middle of October already. My fantasy teams suck and so does my real team. At least Rutgers is playing well.

Good luck this week to all still alive in knockout pools and may your fantasy team score the most points it has this year.

Until next time.
