I didn't think it was possible for you to lose during your bye week. Somehow, the Bucs managed it with the Josh Freeman fiasco. But hey, that's gone and so is my terrible week of picking games. Maybe I should have taken a bye week or headed off to Minneapolis with Josh.
7-7 isn't the end of the world but it's definitely not a great week of picking.
Who saw Cleveland scoring 37 points on the Bills. Cleveland?
Heck, even the Jaguars were competitive for three quarters.
It was a weird week.
What's this one have in store for us?
Last Week: 7-7 50% Upset Specials: 1-1 50%
Season: 50-29 63% Upset Specials: 5-5 50%
Teams on Bye: Falcons, Dolphins
Bengals 23, Bills 3 - I have no idea who is quarterbacking Buffalo this week.
Chiefs 27, Raiders 17 - Gotta love rivalry games. Anything and everything always happens. The Commitment to Excrement crew would love nothing better than to upset the Chiefs' unbeaten season. In KC, it's not going to happen.
Jets 23, Steelers 13 - I am a believer in the Jets. It took me 5 weeks but I think this team can actually contend in the weak AFC Least.
Broncos 63, Jaguars 2 - A bit more competitive score than I would expect.
Patriots 27, Saints 23 - This may be the game of the week. Gronk Smash is back, Saints are on the road...it may be time to hang that first L. The good news is they have a 10 game cushion in the NFC South.
Cowboys 30, Redskins 20 - Lost in the hysteria of Romo throwing that game killing pick (again), he had a pretty great game against the anointed ones in the Broncos. Redskins' name will be the Overrateds after this one.
Holy hell. I just realized I picked all favorites this week. It's going to be another long one folks!
