What up everyone! So I had a decent week, went 9-4, not too shabby. Once again getting these in last second, but here’s my picks for the weekend.
Dal – Det
Lions – Something seems off in Dallas. Romo has been off for the past couple weeks now, and while I think he has a better game this week, I don’t think it’s enough to keep up with CJ and Reggie. Think a big game is coming for Bush. Murray is still hurt, and the balance just won’t be there. Dez and Williams should both have good games.
Cle – KC
Chiefs – Who could have guessed the Chiefs would’ve been the last undefeated team. Seriously, I would’ve taken any bet put in front of me regarding that. That said, I’m now a believer. The Chiefs D is legit, and while the Browns D is pretty good, they’re not that good, and Smith refuses to make mistakes. PS Charles is ridiculous.
Mia – NE
Patriots – While normally I’d say this could be a trap game, hoodie won’t let that happen 2 weeks in a row. I can’t even imagine what practice was like. I think Brady finally gets back on track with another week of his favorite target being back. I keep wanting to say the Dolphins try to get their run game back on track, it’s just not happening. While I think Miller could have a good game, they just refuse to use him. This will probably be close, but I think the Patriots pull this one out.
Buf – NO
Saints – The Saints D is real good. Brees just loves to throw, and when you’re behind by a couple scores, that D really gets a chance to shine with the impressive blitz formations Rob Ryan throws out there. I think Thad Lewis finally shows he’s not really an NFL QB, especially with Spiller being injured. I know he hasn’t been very good this season, but you have to gameplan for him, I think the Saints blow them out.
NYG – Phi
Giants – The Giants finally got a win, and actually looked pretty good doing it. Granted, it definitely could’ve been that Freeman played just awfully, but they at least contained AP. While I think Vick has a good fantasy day, I don’t think the defense can stop anything, and the Giants will pass up and down on them. This one ends up in kind of a shootout, but the Giants pull it out in the end.
SF – Jac
49ers – It’s the Jags…Is there really anything else to say? Nope, but the 49ers are going to run up and down all over them. 49ers D smothers them and Gore runs on an NFL record 100% of the plays.
NYJ – Cin
Bengals – After a good game from Geno, it’s time for a bad one. The Bengals D is legit, and has been playing like the top 5 D they should be. While I think Dalton is very good, Green is a star, and will make him look good. Think this is a close game, but Bengals pull it out.
Pit – Oak
Raiders – I love teams out of the bye week, and I love Terrelle Pryor. Steelers finally looked good last week, but I don’t think their D can keep up with the Raiders. Bell should have a good game, but I believe the Raiders end up on top in the end.
Wsh – Den
Broncos – I know everyone thinks this ends in a shootout, but honestly, I think the Broncos D has a much better game this game. Another week with Von Miller back, and now they should be able to get pressure. The Redskins D is garbage, and while RG3 and the O should score a few points, it’s not going to be nearly enough to keep up with Peyton.
Atl – Ari
Falcons – Carson Palmer is garbage. Ellington will be starting and while I think he has a good game, Matt Ryan showed he could do it without his primary weapons. I expect the coverage has to shift slightly to compensate for Harry Douglas and Gonzalez has a monster game. Falcons win handily.
GB – Min
Packers – The Vikings seem to be awful now. I think Rodgers makes all the right, smart throws, and Lacy runs up and down on the Vikings. Peterson should get back to form a little bit, but too little too late.
Sea – StL
Seahawks – This is going to be a blowout. Richard Sherman is going to have a field day, and despite the fact that Zac Stacy has looked good, I’d be surprised if the Rams score more than 7.
