Another week of football is in the books, and the Cincinnati Bengals have not even looked at kickers after Shayne Graha....I mean Mike Nugent's wide-right mishap against the Panthers. Nope! They signed Greg Little instead. How will they manage this week? Let's take a look.
Atlanta at Baltimore. In this epic battle of birds, the Ravens are flying slightly higher than the Falcons. Baltimore's passing game found its spark last week, and I've got the Ravens winning this week, 24-21. Torrey Smith has another decent game.
New Orleans at Detroit. Detroit's offense is going to be without Calvin Johnson again this week, but that won't stop them this week. Detroit is playing extremely well this year, and that streak continues. Saints 21, Lions 28. Stafford has a monster game.
Carolina at Green Bay. The Panthers are a solid, solid football team. They pulled off a tie in Cincinnati against the Bengals last week. This week, they head to Green Bay and try to knock off a Packers team firing on all cylinders. HaHa Clinton Dix has something to say about that though, an the Panthers will lose, 28-27.
Cleveland at Jacksonville. The Cleveland Browns are a playoff-caliber football team this season. Jacksonville is just fighting for that first overall pick. The Browns push them one step closer to that goal with a dominating win. Final score Cleveland 35, Jacksonville 12.
Miami at Chicago. The Bears have actually played better on the road than at home this season, and the Dolphins looked pretty good last week. I'm picking Miami to win this game, 35-28.
Cincinnati at Indianapolis. While my gut tells me that Cincinnati will win this game, I just can't trust them after the mental mistakes on defense the past two weeks. Marvin Lewis is loyal to a fault an won't even look at other kickers besides Mike Nugent. His answer to how Nugent can fix his mental errors this season? "He's just got to go back out there and kick it. He's just got to kick the football." More wackiness from Marvin Giggles Lewis, and the Bengals giggle their way to 3-2-1 against the Colts. Final score Indy 28, Cincy 27.
Tennessee at Washington. A boring game, for boring people. Someone has to win it though, and the Redskins are a far more intact team currently. I've got Washington 35, Tennessee 14.
Seattle at St. Louis. The Seahawks are the defending Superbowl Champions, and have looked good so far this season. That being said, don't ever count out the other team in a divisional matchup. This is going to be a Seahawks team without Percy Harvin, an St. Louis actually hasn't been playing that badly. The Rams are going to win this game! Final score: Rams 24, Seahawks 14.
Minnesota at Buffalo. Does anyone remember a time when both of these teams were good at the same time? Anyone? The Vikings are still the Vikings, and the Bills have played well at times this year. This team will send the Vikings home with another loss. Final score Minnesota 11 (3 field goals and a safety!), Buffalo 14.
Kansas City at San Diego. I don't believe in the Chiefs, but I do believe in the San Diego Chargers and Philip Rivers. The Chargers win this game in dominating fashion, 38-7.
Dallas at New York Giants. No Victor Cruz? No problem! The Giants will still lose this game. DeMarco Murray has rushed for at least 100 yards in every single game this season. Think about that for a minute. Jerry Jones' high picks on the offensive line have actually paid off! That offense will continue to roll against the Giants this week, and Dallas will win, 38-24.
Arizona at Oakland. The last time Carson Palmer faced his former team in a regular season game, it was against Cincinnati as a Raider, and the Bengals dominated him. This year, Palmer faces the Raiders with a team that is far better than the Oakland team he played with. Palmer gets a taste of revenge, and the Cardinals win, 28-14.
San Francisco at Denver. Denver is hands-down the better team in this matchup. The Broncos have played well this season, especially at home, and will continue to roll against a rather inconsistent San Francisco team. Final score 49ers 9, Broncos 38.
Houston at Pittsburgh. One of these teams had the first overall pick in the NFL Draft last year The other team got blown out by Cleveland last week. Steely McBeam can't stop JJ Watt from having another breakout game. The only thing holding Houston back is their quarterback, but they will take care of business in Pittsburgh this year. Final score Houston 24, Pittsburgh 23.
2 Weeks have gone by and KYLE ORTON IS STILL YOUR QB BUFFALO?!?!? CJ SPILLER STILL ISNT YOUR PRIMARY BACK. Damn I used to like Doug Marone. Well anyway Buffalo is falling apart so lets see the games this week as that unravels.
Atlanta @ Baltimore: Upset alert......... Kinda? Atlanta has been falling apart they have the talent to be 11-5. Baltimore is a pretty good football team but........ they never play like they did last sunday twice in a row. Matty Ice I choose you...... Lets admit this is going to be a shootout for Matty Ice and Joe Flacco. I am going to pick the Falcons though to right the ship this week. Falcons 36 Ravens 34. Falcons win on a Last minute field goal.
Titans @ Redskins: Titans well really who cares? the Washington professional football team as seen on kickstarter through south park. Lets see how this goes. This game is going to be a borefest which the fans attending are going to want to be able to take a nap. But this being said I got the Dan Snyders and other guys from South Park beating the Titans. The Washington professional football team wins 26 - 20 in a boring game.
Panthers @ Packers: Packers got an important hard fought win on the road in Miami. Carolina is coming off a tie on a tough road game against the second best AFC team. Packers have an extremely dangerous offense and being in Green Bay makes this team lethal. I am taking the Packers here on this one...... Packers win 43 - 31.
Seahawks @ Rams: Seahawks didn't lose their identity like the "experts" are saying had happened. They played a cowboys team who could do more then just throw the ball. They faced DeMarco Murray who allows Tony Romo to open up the sky against anyone yes even Seattle in Seattle. But good news for Seattle is well they got rid of the distraction that is Percy Harvin. They got rid of his negative attidude that he was bringing in the locker room. I got Seattle bouncing back this weekend with a win 31 - 19. Austin Davis is a good player I like him but he needs more help.
Browns @ Jags: Browns are a good team much against popular demand. I am not a Hoyer fan I think Manziel is a better QB truthfully but hey are competing in the AFC North. Meanwhile a Storm is brewing in Jacksonville. I got the Jags winning their first game this weekend. Blake Bortles and Storm Johnson will make some magic. I really like this Jacksonville team and I feel its finally time they start showing they have talent. I got the Jags winning....... Jags 24 - Browns 21...
Bengals @ Colts: Bengals woulda..... shoulda...... coulda...... won last week. Mike Nugent is a pile of shit. So that being said the Bengals really are a great team with a bad specials team. The Bengals are going into Indy to visit Andy Luck and co. The Colts are a good team with inconsistencies. I am going to pick the Bengals this weekend. Bengals win 32- 28.
Vikings @ Bills: LOL This game. The collapsed bills I love them so much but man I hate their choices lately. But The Vikings are a really unreliable team. Bridgewater is going to struggle again this week with another really good Defense. I got the Bills winning yes even with a terrible QB at the helm. Bills win 23 - 17.
Dolphins @ Bears: Dolphins played well last week. The Bears need to keep winning to stay alive in the really tough NFC North and at home this week..... I really like the bears this weekend. Bears blow up this week 35 - 20 Bears dominate.
Saints @ Lions: Saints are a terrible road team even in domes they still cant win on the road which is funny to me. The Lions have a great D even without the idiot Tulloch. I am going to take a bad team in the Saints though. For one reason no Calvin Johnson just a Golden Tate. Saints win 21 - 19.
Chiefs @ Chargers: San Diego could be super bowl bound this year if Brandon Oliver stays healthy in the back field and keeps a running game alive with Rivers. The Chiefs are a good team but nothing more then good. The Chargers are an absolutely incredible team. I like them here at home to beat the Chiefs. Chargers win 34 - 23
Cardinals @ Raiders: Cardinals are the best team in the NFC and maybe the best team in the NFL if their QB can say healthy. They are a great team they are all around a perfectly built team. The Raiders might be worse then the 0-16 Lions. The Raiders suck flat out and will get rolled in this one. Cardinals win 35 - 16
Giants @ Cowboys: Cowboys are an elite team top 3 in the NFC. I think the Cowboys will roll their division rivals at home. The Giants are a struggling team now more then ever with Victor Cruz down and out. Cowboys are in the Jerry Jones dome and will win this thing infront of the faithful and Demarco Murray is going to continue on pace to break records. Cowboys win 47 - 28
49ers @ Broncos: Oh look these two have another primetime game. This is annoying well its a legendary QB vs a joke of a QB. SO this is easy the Broncos win this one 31 - 20. Payton Manning looks great again as normal (yawn).
Texans @ Steelers: Um well this is tough the Steelers are the NFL's most inconsistent team in the NFL award winning team. And the Texans are just what they are they are an ok team with flashes every game. But at home the Steelers are going to find a lucky way to win this thing. The JJ Watts are sadly not going to pull this one off. Steelers win 26 - 23.
Sports give us as the human race something to cheer for and support and give hope to all of us.
