TNF Week 9 Pick

PANTHERS (+3) vs. Saints
Drew Brees and company may have found their offense last week, but that was in the dome. This week is a little tougher against a Panthers defense that held the Seahawks to one TD last week. Panthers win because of Cam Newton, 24-17.

Until next time.

Week 8 NFL Picks

I posted in my TNF pick that I was surprised that it's week 8 already in the NFL. Not only is it week 8, but it's almost November! Wasn't it just Labor Day and 90 degrees?

This is a do or die week in many ways for me in NFL football. The Jets' season is on the brink of disaster after losing six games in a row, and on a personal level, my fantasy teams are in peril as well. But enough about me, here are my picks for the week. (HOME TEAM IN CAPS:)

Lions (-3.5) vs. FALCONS
This game is in London. Why is the NFL still doing this? It's a waste of time. Not only that, it makes the NFL hypocritical. There are gambling parlors where you can bet on any sport all over London, but the NFL sued NJ to stop it from allowing legalized gambling on the sport because it would ruin the integrity of the game. That is extremely ironic, considering the NFL promotes fantasy football. Lions win the game because they are the better team.

Rams (+7) vs. CHIEFS
Give me the points.

Texans (-3.5) vs. TITANS
The Titans are on to their third QB this year, something that is not a good thing. Today is no different.

BUCCANEERS (-2.5) vs. Vikings
Who cares.

PANTHERS (+5) vs. Seahawks
The Seahawks are definitely not as good as they were last year. My theory, I drafted them as my fantasy defense. Enough said

Ravens (-1.5) vs. BENGALS
How the mighty have fallen! The Bengals looked like world beaters in the beginning of the year, now, not so much.

Dolphins (-5.5) vs. JAGUARS
The Jags won last week, not so much this week.

PATRIOTS (-6) vs. Bears
The Pats offense looks like it is clicking which spells trouble for the Bears.

JETS (-3) vs. Bills
This is a must win game for the Jets. The playoffs are out of reach, but with a loss this week, the season can spiral to the point of complete dysfunction. The trolls are already circling, I'm looking at you Manish Mehta, to pound this team and turn it into even more of a circus than it already is. Percy Harvin should help the Jets get back on track.

Eagles (+1) vs. CARDINALS
This is the game of the week. A high powered offense versus one of the best defenses in the league. I think the game comes down to the Philly D. I think they shutdown the Cards' offense and win the game rather comfortably.

BROWNS (-6.5) vs. Raiders
The Raiders are really bad. The Browns should bounce back from a dismal showing last week against the Jaguars.

Colts (-3.5) vs. STEELERS
Andrew Luck is playing out of his mind right now. The Colts defense actually looks physically imposing. They win this game rather easily.

SAINTS (-2.5) vs. Packers
This game has shootout written all over it. The Saints desperately need a win and they will get it in the Dome on SNF. Drew Brees has a big game to help the cause.

COWBOYS (-10) vs. Redskins
This is a lot of points to be giving up, but the Cowboys are that good this year. Plus, Colt McCoy is the Skins QB. Enough said.

This week: 1-0
Last week: 7-8
Season: 50-40-2

Good luck to all in their knockout pools, fantasy football games, and weekly pools. Until next time.

TNF Week 8

Holy Crap! It's week 8 already. Where has the season gone? Well for me, it has gone right into the crapper! Here is my Thursday night pick:

BRONCOS (-9) vs. Chargers
Yes, the Broncos are that good. I expect this to be a close game throughout with the Broncos pulling away with a late score, 34-23.

Until next time.
