So hey, it usually takes me a week or two to get into form, but I'm not going to let 13-3 go to my head, because I will probably be 8-8 this week. If you want serious professional pick advice, check out the SB Nation NFL Odds Page. If you want to see what Mikey thinks and laugh a little, keep it here.
NY Giants at Carolina--I have a client who is a Niners fan. I told him how I couldn't believe how the Giants' passing offense now resembles that of those great Joe Montana Niners' teams and Air Coryell Chargers' teams, and that it keeps them in any game despite the fact their defense can be a sieve. Well, look for another shootout tonight, with young Cam Newton losing to old man Eli. Giants 40, Panthers 37
Cincinnati at Washington--This is a tough one to pick. The Bengals are mediocre, but the Skins under Shanahan either blow us away by upsetting good teams or losing to bad ones. Apparently RG3 is pretty good, so I'm going to reluctantly give them the home win. Redskins 26, Bengals 23
Detroit at Tennessee--I just took the milk out of the fridge and right there on the side of the carton was Chris Johnson's career. Seriously, how does any running back fall off a fantasy cliff like that? Lions 37, Titans 20
San Francisco at Minnesota--The Niners are pretty good. The Vikings are not. By the way, has Brandon Jacobs carried the ball yet? Niners 23, Vikings 7
Tampa Bay at Dallas--Whether or not you like Greg Schiano or not, he has the Bucs playing at a much higher level than in 2011. Cowboys 31, Bucs 27
Atlanta at San Diego--This sure is a tough week to pick games. The Falcons are looking better than I thought they would out of the gate, but so are the Chargers. Chargers 28, Falcons 27
Last week: 13-3 | Season record: 21-11
