Are you still basking in the glow of victory, Bucs fans? Well, I am. It had been so long since our beloved Pirates of the Pewter Pants had won a game I forgot what it felt like.
I don't want it to end...I want to feel it next week, too. And so on.
Sure, the Bucs should have lost...but how many games should they have won? Stop raining on our parade, Sander, ya hater!
Well, thanks to the Bucs come-from-behind win, I went 3-for-3 in my upset specials and turned in a respectable 10-4 week.
Let's see what this week has in store for us...
Last Week: 10-4 71% Upset Specials: 3-0 100%
Season: 98-51 66% Upset Specials: 11-8 58%
Byes: Rams, Cowboys
Colts 27, Titans 10 - The Flaming Thumbtacks lost to Jacksonville in their own stadium. How whomever the hell their coach is has not been fired is beyond me...
Jets 20, Bills 10 - EJ Manuel may be back for the Bills, but I'm a believer in Rex Ryan's defense.
Bears 23, Ravens 13 - DA BEARS need this one. The Super Bowl Champion Nevermores are about spent.
Bengals 23, Browns 16 - Okay Bungels, you're making me look bad by picking you every week. Become the team I think you are.
Eagles 30, Redskins 10 - Philly found their offense in Cali and kept it going in Green Bay. The Washington Franchise can't stop Florida State.
Lions 30, Steelers 10 - The Lions go into Pittsburgh and beat the Steelers? Has that ever happened? It will this week.
Upset Special #1: Buccaneers 20, Falcons 16 - Yeah, I know Roddy and Steven Jackson are back. I don't care. The Flukins have packed it in.
Cardinals 20, Jaguars 10 - The Jags have earned the right not to only score 2 points in every one of my predictions.
Texans 26, Raiders 13 - The Houston Redundants finally get it back in gear against the hapless Raiders.
Upset Special #2: Dolphins 20, Chargers 14 - Can a team recover after losing to the Bucs? I'm betting the Chargers coming cross-country thing...
Saints 35, 49ers 16 - The Niners get whupped by another NFC South team. Beware the Bucs....lol...what?
Giants 23, Green Bay 13 - This pick would be unthinkable two weeks ago.
Seahawks 20, Vikings 17 - For some reason, the Seahags play down to their opponent.
Broncos 26, Chiefs 13 - The game of the week has the banged up Denver Mannings taking on the KC Potheads. I think Denver will finally show KC what it's like to face a top notch football team. Puff, puff, pass.
Panthers 26, Patriots 20 - I would have picked this as an upset special...only the Panties are favored.
