Eagles over Texans

Vikings over Bills

Bengals over Saints - This year, no one team seems to separate itself in the NFC. The Bengals have the ability to win this game. I think they fog up the NFC picture more with an upset

Bears over Lions

Packers over 49ers

Jags over Titans

Chiefs over Broncos

Browns over Dolphins

Giants over Redskins

Chargers over Raiders

Colts over Cowboys

Rams over Cardinals

Seahawks over Panthers

Bucs over Falcons - The Bucs have to eventually win a game against a winning team. At home against a division rival they nearly beat? Sounds right

Ravens over Steelers - The home field advantage is the reasoning for this one. And the Steelers worry me after last weeks performance

Patriots over Jets - Again, home field advantage


Houston at Philadelphia=Philadelphia

Washington at Giants=Giants

Denver at Kansas City=Kansas City

Jags at Titans=Jags

49ers at Packers=Packers

Cleveland at Miami-MIAMI. The Browns are just 1-4 on the road. The Dolphins lone in at home was over a better overall team in the Titans. I think the Dolphins win this one by a TD or more.

Buffalo at Minnesota-Minnesota

Chicago at Detroit=Chicago

New Orleans at Cinci=NEW ORLEANS. The Saints are 4-1 on the road and the Bengals are a sorry 1-4 at home. Brees is not having the same type of year as he did last season but he will give the Browns defense all they can handle.

Oakland at SD=SD

Carolina at Seattle=Seattle

Atlanta at Tampa=ATLANTA.

Rams at Cards=CARDS. Bradford is playing well but rookie's on the road struggle. As evident
by the Rams 1-4 road record. TheRams should win the game but they will not.

Dallas at Indianapolis=Indy.

Pittsburgh at Baltimore=PITTSBURGH. No way the Ravens sweep the Steelers in this heated rivalry. 1st place in the North is on the line and I think the Bills game was a trap game. They were looking ahead.

NYJets at New England=Pats

Differences in CAPS


So much for waiting 2 args for voting

Cleveland-Miami
just 1-4 on the road.

How about them winning 3 of their last 5? This isn't the same Browns team and not the same Browns defense of earlier this year.

Their two losses in that stretch? 9-2 Jets and a newly energized Jags team.

Against a struggling Miami team where they are rotating QBs right now. They're running game is non exsistent and Marshall hasn't been who they thought they were getting.

New Orleans-Bengals
the Browns defense all they can handle.

Despite the fact they play the Bengals, this just seems like a game that the Bengals will win. Every time this year that we think there is a team starting to look somewhat elite, they take a step back. The Bengals have the weapons to win this game. A home game for Cincy against a big name opponent. I got Cincy

St. Louis-Arizona
but rookie's on the road struggle

Except in his last two road games, he has 559 yards, 4 TDs, 0 INTs, and with 66% completion

He won't struggle with the Cards.


"This isn't the same Browns team and not the same Browns defense of earlier this year."

Colt McCoy played most of that time. Jake Delhomme came back this past Sunday and while they won? They did not do it in impressive fashion as they squeaked by the Panthers. Arguably the worst team in the League. Delhomme played okay but over the last 1.5 years he has not been able to string together quality starts back to back.

"Every time this year that we think there is a team starting to look somewhat elite, they take a step back."

The Saints will not be caught napping or unaware. They already lost to the Browns. Besides the Bengals have already mailed it in. They have lost 8 straight and 2 straight by a combined score of 75-41. Including a 49-31 loss to the Bills. The Saints offense is a lot more explosive than the Bills. The Saint running game is coming around with Chris Ivory (4.8ypc) and Julius Jones (4.6ypc).

Sean Payton will not them let down and play to the level of their competition this Sunday.

"Except in his last two road games, he has 559 yards, 4 TDs, 0 INTs, and with 66% completion."

The Broncos and 49ers pass D? 9 and 6 INT's. Cards have 11.

Cleveland-Miami
quality starts back to back.

Well, you just said he didn't have a quality start last game, so that shouldn't be a problem

Saints-Bengals
already lost to the Browns

And you make my point. They're known for having some let downs. Sounds like the perfect time for an upset for me.

Pittsburgh-Baltimore
No way the Ravens sweep

Baltimore has the home field advantage. And with Roethlisberger injured, I don't think the Steelers are going to pull this one out.

Listen, FN. Every week upsets happen. We all know it. So when you predict games, you have to predict upsets. I'm sorry that it might not seem right on paper, but they happen. Picking chalk never happens. Every favored team doesn't win.

DJ picked every favorite to win (as far as I know). That won't happen. Be realistic about this people. Upsets happen.

Good TD DJ. Just wish the voting wouldn't have sucked like it did


The Dolphins defense is better than Carolina's. And the Browns struggled to beat a bad Caroina squad. Miami will win and this game will not be close...

"Baltimore has the home field advantage. And with Roethlisberger injured, I don't think the Steelers are going to pull this one out."

He is plaaaaaaying!!!!!!!

*Intentional typo, Peanut Gallery*

And they are better off with Big Ben playing than with their backup options. Despite the start earlier this season. And the Steelers lost a close one at home without Big Ben.
Ben makes the difference and they explose Baltimore's weaknesses in their secondary. Other than Ed Reed.....the Ravens secondary sucks.

FYI: Pitt is a 3 point underdog. I am picking the Steelers to pull the upset.

*Fans that want my Lock of the Week can call 1-800-djroxalot*

"And you make my point. They're known for having some let downs. Sounds like the perfect time for an upset for me."

After starting slugglishly? The Saints are starting to resemble the team that made the Super Bowl last season.

And the running game is starting to show signs of life with Jones and Ivory. Which helps Brees in the passing game.

Good TD as usual...

Titans better beat the Jags. Otherwise, I will not vote on any of DJ's TD's again.....Ever

December 1, 2010  12:26 PM ET

Ravens rarely sweep the Steelers, and Steelers usually bounce back with strong efforts and play extremely well as the underdog. They are also 5-1 on the road, far better than at home. Also, Roethlisberger is something like 7-2 against Baltimore, and he will play. Both teams have secondary issues, but the Ravens still don't really have a consistent deep threat; the Steelers do in Mike Wallace. And Ravens would have lost in Pitt if the Steelers had been able to move the ball out from inside their 10 or whatever near the end of the game, something Roethlisberger would have been able to do. Bottom line is Steelers have slight defensive edge, slight recieving edge (in Wallace and Ward) and have QB edge in this one. Steelers take a close one.

December 1, 2010  12:26 PM ET

How can the Titans beat the Jags with Rusty Smith at QB? His rating last week was TERRIBLE, and he threw no TD and 3 picks.

December 1, 2010  12:30 PM ET

Pats-Jets is a tough one, that's gonna require some thought. Jets have superior defense, and have ability to keep Brady on sidelines by pounding the ball on the ground...I would give the Jets a SLIGHT edge going in, but that is a REALLY tough one to call. I think Ravens-Steelers will be a slightly better game, but those two are definetely the two best of this week, maybe two of the best this season.

If Collins plays and they run it more, yes, they have a shot in that game. If not, no way they win.

Do not know what I did to deserve that but....okay, whatver.

December 1, 2010  12:40 PM ET

Oh, Brett Keisel will likely be back for the Steelers this week, that will be a HUGE boost to the defensive line and improve the pass rush.

December 1, 2010  12:40 PM ET

The Browns play in Cleveland DJ, not Cinci

December 1, 2010  12:46 PM ET

No way the Bengals top the Saints, this is a Bengals team that should have won several games it has played (Cleveland, Buffalo) but always seems to find a way to lose. They have been outscored 58-3 in the second half of their last two games. That is not the mark of a team playing well enough, offensively or defensively, to beat a team of New Orleans' caliber.

December 1, 2010  12:51 PM ET

At Miami.

Brees is not having the same type of year as he did last season but he will give the Browns defense all they can handle.

Glad we could clear that up :)

My upset pick for this week is Buffalo over Minnesota. It could happen.

December 1, 2010  01:20 PM ET

JETS over the PATS
