Here are my NFL Week 4 picks:
(I was 9-6 last week, 10-5 if you have eyes)
Bye teams: Pit & Ind
Cle @ Bal – The Ravens could have a hangover from a tough win against the Patriots, but I think they’ll be just fine. Weeden might have more interceptions than completions.
Car @ Atl – Julio & Matty Ice tore up the AFC West (KC, Den, SD), they shouldn’t have any problems with the Panthers.
NE @ Buf – The Patriots haven’t played great and the game is in Buffalo, but they’re still the Patriots, and they have completely owned the Bills in recent history.
Min @ Det – The Vikings were the big surprise last week knocking off the Niners. If Stafford plays, I don’t think they can shock anyone two weeks in a row. Lions win.
Ten @ Hou – The Texans are, right now, the best team in the NFL. They are excellently balanced, disciplined, and explosive. They will not lose to a division opponent at home.
SD @ KC – Could be a sloppy game, as neither team has really played well so far. If Ryan Matthews can stay healthy for just this one game the Chargers should eek out a win.
SF @ NYJ – Apparently the Niners didn’t even fly home after their embarrassing loss to the Vikings. They came to Ohio and began football boot camp. They will win this week.
Sea @ STL – Well, the Seahwaks got a pretend win. Their defense is for real though. They should rough up Sam Bradford and Russell Wilson will do enough to win, legitimately.
Mia @ Ari – The Arizona Cardinals are winning their division and the St. Louis Cardinals are fighting for a wild-card spot. Seems backwards, but the Dessert Dwellers are for real.
Oak @ Den – Ok, the Broncos will win this week. Peyton & Co. will get the job done at home against their rivals, though they better watch out for Run DMC.
Cin @ Jax – Look for The Law Firm to get going against a poor Jaguar defense and for Blaine Gabbert to have a lot more problems than did RG3. Bengals.
NO @ GB – The hands down game of the week. Both teams should be embarrassed by the way they have played so far this season and will put up major points. Home field gives the Pack a slight edge.
Was @ TB – The Bucs are not the team that was advertised. The Redskins are. RG3 is the real deal and should be able to come away win a tough win.
NYG @ Phi – I know what Vick has done to them in a past, but I’m not buying it based on how awful he’s looked so far this year. Eli thrives late, and he might need to, but Giants win.
Chi @ Dal – A very tough game to predict, as both teams have been hot and cold. I like the Dallas D, and no one likes Jay Cutler, so I’ll go Cowboys.
