DLT's Deadlocks - NFL Picks Week 7 2014

New, comments

DLT turned in a positively mediocre Week 6, what does week 7 have in store?

Frederick Breedon

I have a bone to pick with other prognosticators. I've seen it time and time again and it ticks me off. You know that sister-kisser that the Bengals and Panthers had last week? Well, most proggies will either show a tie on their record or completely drop the game from their record altogether.

No. That's wrong. Did you predict a tie between Cincinnati and Carolina? No, you didn't. So how can you say that prediction didn't count? You were wrong about the outcome of the game - it should be in your loss column.

That's how I'm approaching it. So I ended up with a 10-5 record this week while going 1-1 in my upset specials (predicting a Bucs upset of Baltimore certainly wasn't my most Nostradamus of moments).

Let's see how it goes this week.

Last Week: 10-5 66% Upset Specials: 1-1 50%

Season: 57-34 62%  Upset Specials: 5-7 41%

Byes: Eagles, Buccaneers (thank god)

Thursday Night

Patriots 42, Jets 14 - Another laugher for TNF.

Sunday

Ravens 34, Falcons 17 - The two teams that embarrassed the Tampa Bay Bucs meet in Baltimore. I think the Nevermore's are a little bit more for real than the FAILcons.

Upset Special: Titans 23, Washington 14 - Two terrible teams do battle in the Nation's capital. I blame Obama.

Seahawks 27, Rams 16 - Who knew that the team exposed as a fraud in the Dallas-Seattle game wasn't the Cowboys? As for the Scams, LA called...they said Thanks but no thanks.

Browns 30, Jaguars 13 - The Browns are good...oh my god....get your Zombie Apocalypse kits ready, kiddies because I think the end is nigh!

Colts 30, Bengals 20 - Wow, tough one. Indy has had 10 days to prepare for this one and they're at home.

Bills 23, Vikings 16 - Buffalo circles those wagons with the best of them.

Bears 27, Dolphins 17 - Da Bears beat Da Mammals.

Upset Special #2 Saints 27, Lions 20 - Sean Payton has had two weeks to prepare for the Cowardly Ones. Ruh Roh.

Packers 30, Panthers 20 - Is anyone worth a damn in the NFC South? To think Tampa Bay is 0-3 in division play. How bad do you have to be to suck against these bums?

Chargers 30, Chiefs 20 - San Diego keeps Peyton Manning working for it.

Cardinals 28, Raiders 17 - I went against Arizona last week, despite my better judgement. I won't be doing that again this week.

Cowboys 26, Giants 16 - Okay Dallas, I take it all back. You're for realz, yo.

Sunday Night

Broncos 30, 49ers 24 - A very interesting game on SNF, I'll take Peyton's forehead at home.

Monday Night

Texans 26, Steelers 20 - This was supposed to be the easy part of the Steelers schedule. Oops.
