I have a friend she usually makes her picks by taking all the home teams or visiting teams, she does quite well. This is one of those weeks were taking all the HOME TEAMS could get you a lot of wins in a football pool. All the home teams have a chance this week except Seattle.

Maybe it's just me, but this week seems really tough to pick.

It's not just you. There are 9 games in which division standings and future playoff births are being played for.

Lovit, sure is, and especialy so ifn Narry, has the Bengals beating the Steelers, [now who would have guessed that?] Good luck with yer Raiders ma'am ,cuz yer team is still in contention, and Palmer needs too pick up the pace now.

The reason I picked them is because they are at home, and like I said this is the biggest game of the season for them so far. There is a possibility that the Ravens, Bengals, and Steelers could make it into the playoffs. The Steelers even if they lost to Cincinnati would probably make it to the playoffs because of the weakness of their remaining schedule, and the instability of so many AFC teams. The Bengals need to at least split with the Steelers.

Someone is pulling ahead in the west this week. With McFadden hurt, I don't think it will be the Raiders.

Good luck to Cinci this week! Tough game for sure.

That's it. Divisional games can go either way since the teams know each other so well. At the end of the regular season, those divisional games could be for all the marbles.

I don't know about Seattle ,cuz, the Ravens are kinda erratic, and even considering they beat the Steelers? [the sweep was a shock though] they seem too regress, after a great showing the week before too lesser teams.

I think even the erratic Ravens can beat Seattle. 12th man may make it difficult, but in the end, Ray Rice will run all over them.

Lovit,I guess i got a little more faith in Carson,than most Oakland fans at the moment,cuz yer in a 3 way tie,and anything's possible.

I'm trying to have faith! Still bitter over Sunday's loss. But he did improve last week and I hope that continues.

The Ravens are 2-0 in their division. They need to split with Cincinnati and win both games against Cleveland. The only 2 tough out of division games they have left are SF and SD. If they can't beat Seattle and Indianapolis then they probably won't win their division and a probable 1st round bye.

The Steelers play the Bengals, Bye Week, Chiefs, Bengals. There final 4 games are Browns, 49ers, Rams, Browns, during this stretch they could win 5 games and end up 11-5, at this point if they end up tied with Baltimore they will still be in second place due to the Ravens sweeping them.

The Bengals need to beat the Steelers just to have a chance to make the playoffs.

narrator,....have your friend pick the winners [with spreads],.......i'm curious !?

They used to use point spreads but it was to confusing for management now they just use straight up picks. Another friend makes her picks due to emotions, cute QB, favorite player, and what uniform she likes best. It is very frustrating, especially when they win.

Amazing how your coworkers disappear when their team loses. What the Raiders need to get themselves on track again is McFaddens return, the reason I took the Raiders over Denver last week was because I had been told McFadden would return. But the Raiders won't be any good until they get a decent run defense, thank you Rob Ryan for spreading your coaching ignorance concerning the run.

Thats not what the stats say. It says he was intercepted 3 times again. Only this time it was over the coarse of a whole game and not just a half.
