Let me go ahead and pick Cincinatti over Cleveland for Thursday night before I forget again like I've done for the past two weeks.

1. I know what I said to Miguel_Zorro, but you guys aren't going to pick the Browns, so I won't either.

2. After the humbling loss for the Packers in Denver and the way Carolina allowed the Colts to get back into the game... you know, screw it. I don't need to explain this, I'll pick the Packers every time I see at least a 50:50 chance for a win.

3. Yeah...

4. 5-4 record for the Saints after a 1-4 start, not bad. The Titans are on their way to the #1 draft pick.

5. The Dolphins aren't going to be as bad as in the first meeting of these two teams, but the Bills should still pull off a win with Taylor returning to the lineup. Nevertheless, I have to say it again how much I hate AFC East matchups that don't include the Patriots.

6. I have a feeling this will be a close game. I'd like to pick the Rams, but I didn't have much luck with games the Vikings were involved in. Which means that the Rams get probably blown out and Gurley gets stuffed.

7. The Jaguars have won two games, both against the AFC East. Given the question marks at QB for the Jets, they could win this one too. But there's always the looming turnover for Jacksonville. And let's not forget that they lucked out against the Bills after pissing away a 27-3 lead.

8. Since I saw the Raiders wipe the floor with the Chargers, I believe in Oakland. Pittsburgh lost Bell for the season, so I am going for the upset. That is, if it's even considered an upset at this point.

9. The Bucs won in week 8, so they are due to lose. The Giants may be a mediocre football team, but that's better than bad (which is what Tampa Bay is).

10. The Falcons have struggled mightily in the last three games, but the 49ers are going to start Gabbert. Back then when the Oakland Raiders were absolute garbage, they were still a good pick against a Gabbert team. How does that guy still have a job in the NFL?

11. If the Colts could play an entire game like the last ten minutes of regulation in Charlotte, then maybe, just maybe, they could give Denver a run for their money. But given how inconsistent and self-destructive they have been all season long, this is an easy pick.

12. The Cowboys lost five games in a row, but there is still a lot of talent on that roster. On the other side, the Eagles are quite a crappy football team. Bradford isn't good at all. Dallas just needs to run the ball and play it safe, all the while waiting that the Eagles mess it up on offense. Bryant will get open this week, so there's that too.

13. What a great MNF matchup. Two two-win teams. There's so much that could go wrong here. The Chargers are battling lots of injuries. The Bears are actually not that shabby. The defense has played solid and Cutler didn't give games away. Really feels like the hardest game to pick.

I'm a bit nervous that my picks are so similar to Rol's, but hopefully we'll both have a strong second half of the season like we did last year.

How mean.

I may be gaining ranks slowly, but I am trending upwards. The only week where I dropped in the standings was the apocalyptic week 2, everything else was either up or same. My current streak of top 3 finishes is four. Just need the top record for once, then I'll be beasting.

Fingers crossed that the Raiders win.

I'm thinking the Lions will end up with the #1 draft pick they will probably end up with intentical records and win the coin flip.  The Lions are by far the worst team in the NFL this year and really should still be winless their only win came with the aid of favorable ref calls and they needed overtime to win that one.



Raaaaiiiiidddeeerrrrsssss!!!!
