It's scary to think the NFL season is half-way done.
Greetings kiddies and welcome to another spook-tacular edition of DLT's Walking Deadlocks. While the season has been frightful for some fanbases (fans of the London Jaguars and Tampa Bay Bucs, I'm stalking...excuse me, talking to you).
Okay...I can't do it. I can't write crypt keeper voice this entire article.
Last week I rebounded well, going 11-2. Would have been 12-1 if Dallas could hold a dang lead.
But hey, it's Halloween, I'm high on candycorn and Reese's cups so lets get cracking on Week 9!
Last Week: 11-2 85% Upset Specials: 1-1 50%
Season: 79-43 65% Upset Specials: 6-8 43%
BYE WEEK: Cardinals, Broncos, Lions, Jaguars, Giants, 49ers
Bengals 30, Dolphins 16 - The Bengals have been scary good the last few weeks. The Dolphins look headed to a dirt nap. 3-and-0 to 3-and-OH NO! WE SUCK AGAIN!
Chiefs 20, Bills 14 - I came very close to picking the Bills in the upset. Still wondering if I've been bewitched by some Native American Shaman. They have those right?
Cowboys 24, Vikings 3 - Josh Freeman, Christian Ponder, Matt Cassel, Frankenstein, Willy Wonka. Does it truly matter who is quarterbacking the Vikings this week?
Titans 20, Rams 10 - The Flaming Thumbtacks will show up with a book, "How to serve the Rams." It's a cookbook.
Saints 34, Jets 6 - The Saints will perform the hoo doo that they do on the J-E-T-S Suck! Suck! Suck!
Upset Special #1 Redskins 27, Chargers 16 - West coast to East coast make this one particularly scary for the Chargers. Equally scary? Washington's backup name if the league forces them to change their name. The Bravehearts? Terrifying.
Panthers 27, Falcons 13 - Atlanta expected a Super Bowl run. Little did they know the Panthers would have a better shot. But hey, Mike Smith, here's a Reese's Cup for your troubles. Trick, apparently.
Raiders 30, Eagles 13 - Halloween? What Halloween? It's Sunday in the Black hole.
Seahawks 40, Buccaneers 7 - Now can we Fire Schiano? His team is too damn scary bad.
Upset Special #2 Browns 23, Ravens 16 - I've picked Cleveland to win. Be afraid Browns fans, be very afraid.
Patriots 20, Steelers 13 - In Foxboro, no one can hear you scream (because the Red Sox won that baseball thingy and they're cheering their chowdah heads off).
Colts 31, Texans 10 - Let's see - watch this game or watch the next episode of the Walking Dead? I go with the Zombies.
Packers 24, Bears 17 - Bears are scary to me. Unless they're in Lambeau Field.
