Hells grimes tyrant's picks

Atlanta over Cleveland - Weather could be a factor. And if Cleveland's running game can crack the tough Atlanta D the way they did against Baltimore it could be an upset but now take Atlanta and the points

Denver over Baltimore - Classic trap game. Emotional win for the Ravens, tough contests the following week. Broncos are a dangerous team

Jaguars over Buffalo - Toughest one to call. Both clubs capable of just absolutely not showing up at all. But the Jags have managed to be slop most of the year and still win. The Bills have just been slop

Colts over Chiefs - But KC beats the spread. KC's DB's are young and play out of position too often. Manning will take out his frustrations. But well coached Chiefs fight back and make it a close one.

Rams over Detroit - Both offenses better than expected, but Rams playing better on D

Cincy over Tampa Bay - Tampa Bay offense is undermanned. Their D is porous without Tanard Jackson

Bears over Carolina - Good news for Cutler. Panthers can't rush the passer. Plus Peppers goes nuts against his former team

Packers over Redskins - Unless Aaron Rodgers scrambles and busts his ribs. But I don't see that happening

Giants over Texans - My upset special. Giants D comes alive and makes life miserable for Matt Shaub

Saints over Cardinals - But Arizona beats the spread because Saints can't cover the spread this year

Chargers over Raiders - About time for San Diego to go on one of its winning streaks

Dallas over Titans - But tough (cheap?) team keeps it close and they beat the spread

Eagles over 49ers - It's all set up for the Niners. Kevin Kolb comes in at QB. The Eagles are in panic mode. And they'll find a way to lose this one too.

1. Falcons over Browns-Falcons have proven they can play with the best and beat the best, and Browns aren't quite there yet.
2. Ravens over Broncos-Gonna be close but I think that win last week is a huge boost in confidence.
3. Jags over Bills-Bills are a wreck
4. Lions over Rams-Lions are talented, they finally get the first win here.
5. Texans over Giants-Giants D impressed me Sunday night, the offense didn't.
6. 49ers over Eagles-They have to win sometime....right?
7. Jets over Vikings-Moss won't be quite in sync yet, but his and Favre natural ability will make the game tight.
8. Bears over Carolina-Really think Matt Moore should start this one, Bears offense might not be all there (haven't heard anything on Cutler yet) but i think Peppers takes this game over.
9. Bengals over Bucs-Buc's were exposed last week, think Bengals are starting to get it together.
10. Packers over Redskins-I think this will be close, but Rodgers just has more weapons than McNabb.
11. Cowboys over Titans- Cowboy's have had two weeks to think about where they're at and prepare for this one.
12. Chargers over Raiders-Here comes San Diego....
13. Saints over Cardinals-Cardinals just aren't as skilled

There's my picks, if anyone cares!

1. Falcons* & Browns - Matty Ice is keyed in and Browns are the Browns...
2. Ravens & Broncos* - Ravens have been too inconsistent for me, at least on offense. I think Orton and the short game can move the ball against the Raven's D.
3. Jags* & Bills - lol Bills
4. Lions & Rams* - Bradford is really coming on and Jackson is still a top RB..
5. Texans* & Giants - Is the Giants D-Line that good, or a Chicago O-Line that bad?
6. 49ers & Eagles* - I like what Kolb can do and think he'll be fine with a week of practice..
7. Jets* & Vikings - Jets shutdown defense has a field day with Grand pa pa..
8. Bears* & Carolina - If Cutler plays, Bears win big if not.. they win close. Peppers takes game over either way..
9. Bengals* & Bucs - Bucs are just too young, but they're going places..
10. Packers* & Redskins - Redskins barely beat Philly and Rodgers is just too good..
11. Cowboys & Titans* - I really don't care who wins.. but I'd love to see Roy Williams get crunched.. alot..
12. Chargers & Raiders* - Upset special..
13. Saints & Cardinals- If only the Cards had a decent QB.. still the Saints stumble to a W..

So many could-be-great games this weekend:

Ravens/Broncos: #1 passing offense vs. #1 passing defense
Jags/Bills: Sloppy game, but should go down to the wire.
Lions/Rams: Two young, up and coming teams duking it out.
Jets/Vikings: Gonna be the most watched game this weekend.
Texans/Giants: Great Houston running attack against the Giants stout def line.
49ers/Eagles: Injuries change the Eagle offense, and the 49ers are desperate and capable of the win.

I agree with all your picks but 2. Rams@ Lions both are on streaks of their own ( If you call the Rams winning 2 in a row a streak) and both will end this week.

^^^^^^^^^ Oh the other team I disagree with is the Jets beating Vikings although the Jets now have more than one player on the Vikings to hate, now they have Favre and Moss. Sanchez will take a pounding in this game.

LCBF,I got the Browns winning in upset!! That running game FB Hillis is a Beast!!,Cincy has a FB,[Brian Leonard],That They don't use that much,but on about the Same scale as Hillis,Of course We got Benson and Scott[This Kid is Good!!] as our #1 #2 RB's,but they need too use leonard more on 3rd and short situations.And see what happened when Carson passed for over 200+ yrda and TO cought for 200+?,We lost cuz the running game didn't get over 100+yrds,so statistics are out the window,ifn there's no"Win"in the Mix!!

Now that the passing game is clicking a bit, they should be able to balance that out. You should be fine against the Buccs--probably move the ball better than cleveland did against them.
