It was an interesting week once again with my picks, as going into Monday night I stand at 7-5 for the week, and with the Falcons tonight hope to end the weekend on a high note and go 13 games over .500 for the season at 28-15.
I think most out there had the Bills winning at home, considering how strong they looked vs the Dolphins on the road last week. The Steelers let me down, as I still maintain that they gave that game away with the back to back fumbles and Ben’s three picks. The Lions laid an egg at home against a very bad Packers team, Minnesota also committed a late turnover to lose their NFC North matchup with the Bears. My final loss on the day was another that I think most people lost as well, which was the Pats at home on Sunday night falling to the Broncos.
I thought that the Rams had a gutsy effort in Arizona, and I think people are starting to see that the Cards, with as much firepower as they are supposed to have, are not as good as people think. Of course it doesn’t help when your starting QB fumbles the game away like Kurt Warner did. He also was the victim of three other turnovers on the day. The Eagles rebounded nicely in San Francisco, getting a big win heading into a Monday nighter next week with the Packers. Indy was my lock of the week, as if you read my post 15 minutes before the opening kickoff, you will see that I thought that there would be two spankings on Sunday, the Colts over the Jags and the Seahawks over the Giants.
While I didn’t think that the Hawks would ever have a 42-3 lead over the overrated Giants, I did think they were being dissed and that they would lay the wood to the New Yorkers, and they did. Now the national media will make Seattle the “best team in the league” this week. Look for Chicago, Cincy and the Colts to also be anointed as the next round of the best teams in football. That is of course until 2 of 3 of them lose next week.
