Updated: And man is jetlag pretty bad! But here are the rest of my picks for this week!

Hey folks, I'm back. Well, not quite yet. I'm on my way back and should be here some time tonight (God willing).

Just in case I don't get back before kickoff of the Thursday Night game, I'm going to post the pick now and update the rest of my picks, as well as my weekly and season performances when I get to my computer later today or tomorrow.

In the meantime, here's the setup:

Last Week: 11-3 78%    Upset Specials: 2-0 100%

Season:   62-30 67%       Upset Specials: 7-4 63%

Byes: Bears, Bengals, Broncos, Packers

Thursday Night

Seahawks 23, 49ers 13 - The Niners, even these bad ones, always give Seattle fits but the Seahawks should win.


Bills 24, Jaguars 13 - I really like Gus Bradley but I'm afraid his football team isn't very good on either continent.

Upset Special: Buccaneers 24, Washington 17 - I think the Washington franchise is on the precipice of falling off a cliff. I think the Bucs give them that final shove. Besides, Doug Martin chose the nickname I coined for him - the Dougernaut - as his favorite. How can I go against them?

Falcons 30, Titans 10 - Since tearing apart the Bucs, Marcus Mariota has gone 90-146, 62% comp pct, 1030 yds, 5 TD, 5 ints, 5 fumbles, his QB rating has gone down every week, the flaming thumbtacks have lost every game and now he's hurt. Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?

Colts 24, Saints 21 - It was a big win by the Aints the other night. But I think it said more about the Falcons than New Orleans.

Vikings 23, Lions 16 - Minnesota keeps churning through wins. The Cowardly Ones got their one.

Chiefs 24,  Steelers 13 - There's no truth to the rumor Brett Favre called the Steelers asking for a try out. Really.

Rams 20, Browns 13 - Gotta admit, Josh McCown has been lighting it up. Unfortunately, Cleveland still loses.

Dolphins 20, Texans 13 - Miami continues their resurgence under the new coach.

Patriots 30, Jets 17 - Are the J-E-T-S Suck! Suck! Suck! for real this time? I'll let my friend Lana answer -


Upset Special #2: Raiders 24,  Chargers 16 - I can't believe I'm typing this. I'm picking the Raiders...on the road!

Giants 23, Cowboys 16 - Cowboys have fallen off the wagon since the loss of Dez and Romo.

Sunday Night

Panthers 24,  Eagles 20 - The Panthers are apparently for real.

Monday Night

Cardinals 23, Ravens 13 - Has any team fallen as far and fast as the Nevermores?
