Steelers - game of the week, this game proves how competitive these two teams will be this year. I'm not as confident as a Steelers fan would like to be, but if the Pittsburgh D can take Foster/Tate out of the equation and we can run the football the Steelers get the W
Bears
Redskins
Eagles - the Eagles are more then Michael Vick -- Lesean McCoy proved that he's a premier back last week. Alex Smith struggles against the Eagles secondary -- turnovers will be key in this matchup
Titans - Hasselback looks good, I expect the running game to pick up in Tennessee as well. McCoy has a tough day. Titans move to an impressive 3-1
Vikings
Lions -- Game of the week, Stafford faces his biggest challenge and we find out if the Lions are for real against an improving Cowboys defense. promises to go down to the wire
Bills -- this explosive offense will pull out another impressive performance and show the Bengals defense's true colors
Saints
Giants
Falcons - Falcons kill take their anger on the poor Seahawks after the Bucs upset
Patriots - Patriots bounce back after the Bills upset, but this one will be close. another shoot out, except without the help of the Brady turnovers
Chargers - The Dolphins aren't a bad team and they're hungry for their first win, I expect a close game.
Packers
Jets - a game that appears to be about defense turns into an offensive shoot out -- but the Jets D finishes the game .. this'll be a good one
Buccaneers -- Another close game, the Colts are STARVING for a victory and played well against Pittsburgh. This was a tough one to call, but I'm taking the Bucs

ok that was just a mess. can we just post our pics with a BRIEF description... seriously! This isn't friggin sports center.

I don't mind all the explanations for their picks, but I'm a little confused that he picked two games of the week (Steelers vs Texans and Lions vs Cowboys). If I told him he can only have one game of the week I'm sure he'd take the Steelers vs Texans.

Excuse me for wanting to give explanations for my picks. Besides those seem pretty brief to me .. nothing compared to the 30+ page essays I gotta write every week!!
And sorry, narrator, I meant to point out that I just couldn't pick which game would be the game of the week. If I had to pick you're probably right, I would take the Houston and Pittsburgh game, not just cause I'm a Steelers fan but because of how monumental this early win would be for both franchises.
