Hey there folks!
It's good to have a bounce back week! New England bounced back with a big win over the Saints. Dallas bounced back after being "Peyton'd". Carolina put up more points than the Bucs have scored all season (I think, I suck at math).
So what does week 7 have in store for us?
Let's find out!
Last Week: 11-4 73% Upset Specials: 0-0 0%
Season: 61-33 65% Upset Specials: 5-5 50%
Bye Week: Saints, Raiders
Upset Special: Cardinals 20, Seahawks 17 - While the Seahags are 5-1, they've been winning u-g-l-y. On the road in front of a national television audience and against a very solid Cards defense, I think they might get stunned here.
Falcons 20, Buccaneers 10 - With the Flukins resembling a M*A*S*H unit, I began the week thinking that this week might be a great opportunity for the Bucs' first win of the season. Then I remembered: Mike Smith (.671 winning pct.) vs. Greg Schiano (.333 winning pct.).
Bengals 23, Lions 20 - Tough one to pick, two times I really like. I'm sticking with the Stripes, even on the road against the Cowardly Ones.
Dolphins 23, Bills 17 - The Mammals still are pounding away at the AFC Least. Frank Reich was seen at a try out at the Bills facility.
Patriots 24, Jets 16 - It looks like the J-E-T-S Suck! Suck! Suck! are back.
Eagles 30, Cowboys 23 - After seeing it up close, I'm a believer in that Chip Kelly offense.
Upset Special #2: Bears 31, Redskins 16 - How the Bears are underdogs to Washington I'll never know.
Panthers 20, Rams 13 - Both teams are coming off surprising blow out victories. I like the Pitties defense better than the Scams.
Chargers 26, Jaguars 2 - Could this be the week the Jags finally get off the mat and get a win? Nope.
49ers 27, Titans 20 - The Flaming Thumbtacks are playing everyone tough. Still, the Niners are the better team.
Packers 30, Browns 13 - This was the week I was picking Cleveland...then I realized their playing the Discount DoubleChecks. Nope, not this week.
Chiefs 44, Texans 13 - Man, what in the world has happened to the Houston Redundants? The fans cheering that their quarterback - whose led them to multiple playoff appearances - got hurt? They get what they were asking for. An ass kicking by the Chiefs.
Ravens 26, Steelers 13 - Pittsburgh's back baby! Or not.
Broncos 37, Colts 20 - I was going to pick the Colts as an upset this week until Jim Irsay shot off his mouth. Peyton Smash.
Vikings 27, Giants 13 - So the Vikings will be "Free Fallin'" this week against the G-men. Just beware Norseman fans...he'll look like Tarzan one week, play like Jane the next.
