Here comes Mikey again and he's still (sort of) on a roll.
Greetings everyone, and good vibes to everyone affected by Hurricane Sandy. As always, real life trumps sports, but we also know it's a nice diversion for many of you to forget about real life for a few minutes. Anyway, I've said what I had to say, now let's get to the Week 9 picks....
Kansas City at San Diego--So this is what you thought was a good idea, NFL Network? Some of these Thursday night games have been flat-out horrible match-ups, and here you have two teams that don't really want to win games. So there's that. Chargers 23, Chiefs 16
Baltimore at Cleveland--Suddenly, this one is interesting. The Ravens are flailing and the Browns have won two of three. At the end of the day, though, I don't see big brother Harbaugh losing this one. Ravens 22, Browns 19
Arizona at Green Bay--Remember when the Cardinals were 4-0 and everyone was picking them compete with the Niners for the NFC West? After losing four straight, the Cards are now competing for the NFC West.......cellar. Packers 30, Cards 20
Tampa Bay at Oakland--A rematch of the 2002 season Super Bowl, and raise your hand if you give a flying crap. Raiders 27, Bucs 26
Minnesota at Seattle--Boy, did the Vikings lay an egg at home against Tampa. Meanwhile, Seattle hung tough against Detroit and could be a fringe wild card team in a very strange NFC. Seahawks 19, Vikings 17
Steelers at Giants--For whatever reason, I like how we match up against the Steelers. Of course, Pittsburgh is best in the NFL against the run, so Eli will have to wake from his slumber. And for the love of G-d, please don't wear those bumblebee unis again. Oh, and it's a CBS game, so thankfully no Buck/Aikman. Giants 22, Steelers 19
Last Week: 9-5
Season record: 72-46
