ATL @ CAR Carolina Their defense is playing better and I think they can handle an improved Atlanta team.
CLE @ CIN Cincinnatti Cincy stepped up against the Giants and Cleveland has serious questions on offense.
HOU @ JAC Jacksonville It breaks my heart to go against the Texans but they have too many questions on offense and have real problems stopping the run on defense.
DEN @ KC Denver Home-field advantage doesn't mean that much when you're as bad as the Chiefs are.
SF @ NO New Orleans I like the way the Saints play on offense. I also don't think San Fran is all that good.
ARI @ NYJ Arizona Despite being a long way from home all week this week, I think that Boldin and Fitzgerald will give the Jets fits.
GB @ TB Green Bay Not really sure who to pick here but I like what I'm seeing out of Rodgers.
MIN @ TEN Minnesota I hate Tennessee way too much to take them over the visiting team. I think that Peterson is going to run Fat Albert into the ground.
SD @ OAK San Diego They came out angry on Monday night. They might be a little drained after getting their first win of the season but I doubt it'll matter much.
BUF @ STL Buffalo Will St. Louis win a game this week?
WAS @ DAL Dallas I hope Washington beats Dallas but the Cowboys are looking really, really good this year.
BAL @ PIT Pittsburgh Both have solid defenses. Pittsburgh's got the better offense and they're the home team.

ATL@CAR - Carolina. My darkhorse pick from the NFC this year. Atlanta's played better than I expected, but the Panthers are a better team.

CLE@CIN - Cleveland. Cincinnati's joke of a defense looks like a good remedy for a struggling offense.

HOU@JAC - Jacksonville. If they can run the ball, they can win the's that simple. And I think they can run the ball on Houston.

DEN@KC - Denver. A team of retarded, legless monkeys would be the odds on favorites against KC this year. Tyler Thigpen? Are you kidding me?

SF@NO - New Orleans. The Saints are pretty solid. The Niners are beating up on the injury riddled and the crappy. New Orleans is neither of those.

ARI@NYJ - Jets. I see a close game, but I see a Jets win that will give their fans a ridiculous sense of hope, making the inevitable failures to come that much more painful (and fun to watch for the rest of us).

GB@TB - Green Bay. Packers come out pissed off. Tampa counters with Jon Gruden making the 'immortal' Brian Griese throw 7000 times again, then scowls for the cameras. Good team...or crappy game plan and overrated coach...I choose the good team.

Min@Ten - Tennessee. As much as I loathe the Titans, and question how the Hell they keep winning, they probably will again. It's Gus Frerotte for Chrissakes!

SD@Oak - San Diego. Oakland defines chaos, and Al Davis looks like he eats babies for fun. Plus, San Diego has the power of an asswipe quarterback. In the battle of an asswipe vs. a baby eater, the asswipe wins, because the baby eater has no effect on adults.

Buf@StL - Buffalo. Trent Green will have 3 concussions by half time, then come out for the 3rd quarter in a Joe Montana jersey, thinking he IS Joe Montana. He's not.

Was@Dal - Dallas. Seriously, this team is scary right now. Come on, world, bring on the hookers and blow to bring this team down!

Phi@Chi - Philly. Actually a bit of a tough call, because we don't know Westbrook's status. Overall, though, Philly's the better team. I cannot choose a team starting Devin Hester at wide receiver against a team with a respectable D.

Bal@Pit - Pittsburgh. This one's going to be close, because the Steelers are banged up. Still, I cannot pick Joe Flacco over Ben Roethlisberger, a man who not only possesses impressive abilities to bang drunken floozies, but a man who also can collide with a car AND WIN.

If you're going to tell me how I did, why not play?
ATL @ CAR: If it was ATV vs CAR I might pick ATV, but since it's not, give me CAR.

CLE @ CIN: All football is sin, right? Let's take CIN.

HOU @ JAC: Hugh Jackman? He wouldn't be special without JAC.

DEN @ KC: Anyone who takes on KFC is a loser, so KC.

SF @ NO: Just say NO.

ARI @ NYJ: Gotta go with the ninjas on this one NYJ.

GB @ TB: Brits get tuberculosis, die queeny! TB

MIN @ TEN: Ten is more than the minimum, so TEN it is.

SD @ OAK: Only one is strong, like a tree, and it's OAK.

BUF @ STL: Buffalo Steele, romance archaeologist... Oh yeah, he's BUF.

WAS @ DAL: It was the daleks all along, DAL.

PHI @ CHI: Unlike Tai-chi phi-chi isn't cool, at least it still has the CHI.

BAL @ PIT: who doesn't love to play in a ball pit? And it's no fun without the BAL.
