Pigskin Predictions

I was 10-4 this week putting my season record at 85-42. How bad are the New York Giants? They could be the worst team in football. The Patriots are getting better every week and are back in the mix. What an interesting football week. Tennessee 17, Pittsburgh 20 – Could go the other way. Detroit 38, Chicago 20 – Detroit has been sharp Jacksonville 27, more...

Pigskin Predictions

I was a lousy 7-6 last week. Not my best week. I am 75-38 on the season. I am shocked how bad the Giants and Packers are right now. Without Aaron Rodgers Green Bay is nothing. It is sad. The Mighty Giants have fallen hard. Seattle 24, Arizona 20 – Seahawks can’t be that bad? New Orleans 31, Buffalo 21 - Tough one to call Green Bay 13, Chicago 14 – Home more...

Unexpected, Exciting and a Really Good Game There’s a second NBHS football team in town and if enthusiasm is any indication, it’s a real winner.

Pigskin Predictions

I went 12-1 upping my season record to 69-32. It was an easy week for me. No big upsets took place. The biggest surprise was Jimmy Garappolo getting traded. That was a shock to me. Buffalo 30, NY Jets 20 – Bills better team Baltimore 23, Tennessee 20 – Hard teams to predict Tampa Bay 17, New Orleans 33 – Saints are tough at home LA Rams 28, NY Giants more...

Pigskin Predictions

I went 11-4 last week putting me at 57-31 for the season. There were not too many surprises this week. Kansas City’s loss leaves them not a clear #1 anymore. And the Patriots seem to be coming around as they took care of Atlanta handily. Miami 20, Baltimore 21 – Home team Minnesota 34, Cleveland 14 – Vikings win easily Oakland 23, Buffalo 24 – Bills are more...

Pigskin Predictions

At 5-9 last week it was probably the worst week I ever tried to predict. There was no rhyme or reason to the teams that won. It would have been easier flipping a coin. Overall I am 46-27. Kansas City 32, Oakland 28 – I still believe in KC Tampa Bay 13, Buffalo 17 – Bills could win division? Carolina 24, Chicago 13 – Panthers are getting more...

Pigskin Predictions

I was 11-3 in football picks this week putting my overall record at 41-18. Who would have thought after 5 weeks that the Patriots would be average, the Giants winless and the Jaguars would destroy Pittsburgh. Football is unpredictable. Philadelphia 28, Carolina 30 – Home team slight advantage Miami 13, Atlanta 31 – Blow out! Green Bay 33, Minnesota 21 more...

Pigskin Predictions

I was 11-5 last week to put me at 30-15 for the year. A few surprises so far this season. I am surprised to see the Giants still winless at this point. I am surprised that Dallas is not as good as I expected. I don’t see the Patriots going to the Superbowl. Denver looks really good this year. It’s definitely going to be an interesting year. There are a lot of more...

Pigskin Predictions

I went 8-6 in week 2. Not too good. I am 19-10 on the season. Here are my week 4 picks. Green Bay 24, Chicago 13 – Packers should dominate New Orleans 27, Miami 17 – Saints have advantage Buffalo 28, Atlanta 38 – Buffalo defense can’t hold Falcons Cincinnati 26, Cleveland 20 – Bengals get first win LA Rams 20, Dallas 23 – Last minute more...

Pigskin Predictions

I opened the season at 11-4. Was the Patriots loss shocking? I was shocked, but now at least no one can wonder if they will have a perfect season. They certainly did not look Super Bowl bound. In fact, they fall from Number One in my power rankings to Number Five. Cincinnati 30, Houston 20 – Bengals play better this week Arizona 23, Indianapolis 10 – Colts more...
