Denis24: 6-8 (Hope to do better.)
(5-4) Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ (3-6) Atlanta Falcons
DetroitFan: Hey, Hey Tampa Bay, this is one of the boring games of the weekend, time to go cut the grass or something. I am going to say the Falcons will win this small rivalry. They are playing better than the Bucs right now, and I think this will be an upset.
Verdict: 17 - 13 Falcons
Denis24: You just haven't learned have you? Tampa Bay is an experienced team, and will not let the Falcons, out of all teams, launch 17 points on them. Trust me, never pick the Falcons on an upset.
The Verdict: 21 - 13 Bucs
(5-4) Cleveland Browns @ (4-5) Baltimore Ravens
DetroitFan: The Browns WERE playing good, and still are. The Steelers defense is just too good for them. Baltimore isn't going to let the Browns sweep them this year, not even at home, however, Derek Anderson will throw some TD's, and the Ravens OFFENSE isn't doing well, so I am going with the Ravens.
The Verdict: 29-13 Browns
Denis24: One of the easiest games to pick yet. I don't see Heap playing in this game, and without him, that defense is horrible. On second thought, they are horrible anyway. That defense has disappointed this year, badly.
The Verdict: 34 - 14 Browns
(4-5) Arizona Cardinals @ (3-6) Cincinnati Bengals
DetroitFan: The Cardinals have a decent secondary, and the Bengals can't run. If they get shut down on the passing game, they are doomed. I say Cardinals win this one.
The Verdict: 28- 21 Cardinals
Denis24: I've never thought I would say this, but the Cards will put up more than 30 points Sunday vs. a Bengals defense that is playing like they are don't care anymore. Look for Edgerrin James to put up some points in a win.
The Verdict: 31 - 20 Cardinals
(4-5) New Orleans Saints @ (4-5) Houston Texans
DetroitFan: 2 evenly matched teams, (Yeah, like 3 weeks ago...). The Saints will win this one big, the Houston defense has flustered weeks ago, letting 25 Points per game. So the Saints win, with help from Drew Brees.
The Verdict: 35-17 Saints
Denis24: Again, I agree with you. This will be an extremely fast game with a lot of points put up on the board, but the Saints come out dominating. Drew Brees has a good game, with over 3 TD with a healthy Reggie Bush in the backfield. Win goes to the Saints.
The Verdict: 34 - 24 Saints
(4-5) Kansas City Chiefs @ (7-2) Indianapolis Colts
DetroitFan: Well, the Colts are hungry for a win now; the victim is unfortunately the Chiefs. They will get flat out OWNED. Not much to say otherwise, my prayers go to Brodie Croyle...
The Verdict: 38-7 Colts
Denis24: Colts win, nothing much to say. Addai=good game. Manning=good game. Bob Sanders=good game. A BLOWOUT! (Remember, Larry Johnson is sitting this game.)
The Verdict: 44 - 6 Colts
(4-5) Carolina Panthers @ (8-1) Green Bay Packers
DetroitFan: Here is what separates this game to decide a winner: Panthers - 3rd String QB, Packers - Brett Favre, any more questions? The Packers will improve to 9-1, so look out Panthers; Steve Smith might want to leave after this season, unless they get a better CB, and an offensive line to protect the QB better.
The Verdict: 27-10 Packers
Denis24: I smell a victory for the Pack. An easy one! I agree with you, Steve Smith needs to be used differently. 9-1 and nobody seems to care. Nothing to say other than, Packers win.
The Verdict: 24 - 14 Packers
(5-4) San Diego Chargers @ (6-3) Jacksonville Jaguars
DetroitFan: This is a big game for the Jags; they are 1 game behind the Colts in the division now. The Chargers are coming off of a revved up win over the Colts. Their defense has been playing better recently, and slowing down is the last thing they will do, I am going with the Bolts.
The Verdict: 27-13 Chargers
Denis24: I am going to predict a win...for the Jags! The only reason the Chargers won last week was one reason, special teams. This week, they are playing an angry Jags team that is eager to climb their way back up the AFC South standings. Look for the Chargers to cool themselves down.
The Verdict: 22 - 21 Jaguars
(2-7) Oakland Raiders @ (3-6) Minnesota Vikings
DetroitFan: WHO SCHEDULED THIS GAME!?!?! I am going with the Raiders, they have a better offense, since the Vikings have no QB or Adrian Peterson, which is the bad side for them, and I say Oakland gets the magic number, 3!
The Verdict: 21-14 Raiders
Denis24: Last week I picked the Vikings over the Pack (bad prediction) and this week I will do the same. LOL YES! The Vikes will win this game, without Peterson. Did you forget they have a player by the name of Chester Taylor on their team?
The Verdict: 15 - 12 Vikings
(0-9) Miami Dolphins @ (4-5) Philadelphia Eagles
DetroitFan: Well..., this game should boost up McNabb's and Westbrook's stats a bit, eh? The Eagles thrash the horrible defense.
The Verdict: 38-14 Eagles
Denis24: Win #1 comes right here!!! RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW! That defense will step up and win a tough game.
The Verdict: 21 - 20 Dolphins
(6-3) New York Giants @ (6-3) Detroit Lions
DetroitFan: I don't know what to think, I know what half of you are thinking. "A Battle of the Overrated". Well, I think otherwise, whoever wins this is closing in on a Wild Card here. I think the Lions will win, because of the Home advantage and the Best Turnover Ratio in the league; it will frustrate Eli Manning too much, but A LOT of scoring.
The Verdict: 31-24 Lions
Denis24: Again, I will disagree with you. Eli Manning will NOT struggle; it will be Kitna that will struggle. Look for Usi to have a good game against the Lions O-Line. The Giants like playing away from home, and this will be a big game for the playoff implications.
The Verdict: 34 - 27 Giants
(7-2) Pittsburgh Steelers @ (1-8) New York Jets
DetroitFan: Do I need to say anything? Nope...
The Verdict: 42-10 Steelers
Denis24: Blowout of the season...
The Verdict: 41 - 3 Steelers
(5-4) Washington Redskins @ (8-1) Dallas Cowboys
DetroitFan: Tied for the biggest NFL Rivalry, this will be a good game. I am choosing the Redskins. They have had better defense, and their offense plays well when feeling pressure. I have noticed it barely, but just trust me, they will beat the Cowboys.
The Verdict: 21-17 Redskins
Denis24: I don't see that happening, considering Romo and T.O. are still playing for the Cowboys. Last week, they lost to the Eagles. Why do you think they will win this game?
The Verdict: 38 - 28 Cowboys
(1-8) St. Louis Rams @ (2-7) San Francisco 49ers
DetroitFan: Well, is there an underdog, or the time you tell your wife you will cook dinner this time? I don't think the 49ers and Alex Smith will win this one, the Rams have a better offense, and both defenses aren't doing the greatest.
The Verdict: 34-17 Rams
Denis24: The 49ers just can't put points up on the board and I feel bad for Frank Gore. There is no passing game in that offense. Rams have a better offense and defense, as you said. Steven Jackson will get back on pace, even though he is still a disappointment. You just have the game at way too much scoring.
The Verdict: 16 - 6 Rams
(4-5) Chicago Bears @ (5-4) Seattle Seahawks
DetroitFan: Seattle has a better offense and defense down on paper. What is happening to the NFC? 2 Good divisions anymore?
The Verdict: 17-13 Seahawks
Denis24: Rex is back, and that is not a good sign. Devin Hester will not get anywhere close to the ball today, and Morris will have a good running game.
The Verdict: 24 - 14 Seahawks
(9-0) New England Patriots @ (5-4) Buffalo Bills
DetroitFan: Sorry Bills Fans, a storm is brewing through your stadium, Hurricane Brady will toss up your linebackers and make them run for their lives, the defensive line will be stopped by the Pat's offensive line, and the Receivers have about a 7 Foot difference on the Bills Secondary. Patriots Win.
The Verdict: 38-10 Patriots
Denis24: I'm sorry to say, but the Pats remain undefeated.
The Verdict: 37 - 23 Patriots
(6-3) Tennessee Titans @ (4-5) Denver Broncos
DetroitFan: Who has the better offense and defense? The Titans. Who will win? The Titans will, I don't care where they are playing. They have a good running game and the Bronco defense just opens up holes for them, I am giving this game to the Titans.
The Verdict: 24-16 Titans
Denis24: For some reason, I just don't think the Titans are for real. There QB is not producing, with a 62.2 QB Rating. Selvin Young will go all out, and the Broncos come out of here with a win at home.
The Verdict: 21 - 20 Broncos
