It's interesting that everybody is so heavily on the Arizona side, given that Cincy is an 8-1 team.

Bengals don't preform well in primetime, not that they can't play well today of course. I also think the Cardinals are a better team than the Bengals personally. 


I think the Cardinals are better too.  But I looked at strength of schedule and so on and neither team has had a lot of tough matchups.  But Arizona is leading the league in touchdowns, so there's that.

Went perfect 2-0 on my afternoon game changes, might have saved my week in terms of at least looking like a decent record.

The Vikings suck really hard.

The Packers offense was ho-hum, although that's still a notable upgrade. If I remember correctly, they only had one redzone trip today. The Packers defense stepped up today, that was the real difference.

Very important win for Green Bay, because a loss would have put the NFC North out of reach. Two games down and the horrible loss against Detroit would have meant that the Packers needed to win three more games than the Vikings over the final six game stretch.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Nice win by the Cardinals glad I switched that pick.



Cowbros, answer me this:

Your team is currently in possession of the 16th seed in the NFC. (In case someone doesn't know, there are only 16 teams in a conference.) Do you honestly believe that there is a chance that your team can move up 12 spots over the span of six weeks?

EDIT: Relevant to the topic:

Undefeated and coming off a 44-16 mauling of the Washington Redskins, coach Ron Rivera was surprised to hear Monday that his 10-0 team rolls into Dallas on Thanksgiving as underdogs to the 3-7 Cowboys.

Nobody likes the Panthers.

If the Giants collapse and go 7-9 or 8-8, I could believe. As it stands right now, I don't believe Dallas will run the table and New York will falter. Would be amazing if we did somehow make the playoff though xD

We'll be a lot smarter in 72 hours. By that time the Cowboys are either buried for good in a division of mediocrity or they'll be back on track big time after a win over the undefeated Panthers.

My prefered scenario would be a win for the Cowboys on Thanksgiving, followed by a 3-1 stretch (gotta lose to the Packers because it's the honorable thing to do) that puts Dallas at 7-8 with a chance to win the division with a win over the Redskins in week 17. Of course, they'll collapse in classic Cowboys tradition and we'll get the fourth week 17 meltdown in the span of five years. The NFC East winner will be the Washington Redskins and Arkaign will dance naked on the street.

Changing my pick to the Patriots.  By 7.

ARI-SF 1 PIT-SEA 2 NE-DEN 1 BAL-CLE CLE by 3

Not so sure on this weeks picks. Probably going to keep having crappy weeks anyway so whatever.



And yet another Patriots' receiver goes down.

I didn't think there was any way in hell I would ever pick a Brock Osweiller led team to beat New England, but if Amendola's going to be out, I honestly might. My consolation is that there's a chance we'll have at least 60% of a healthy starting offensive line this week...
