Pigskin Predictions

I was horrible last week in picks going 6-7. One of my worst weeks ever. Overall, I am 95-39.

My Patriots continue to look strong. Carolina should not be overlooked. They beat Green Bay last week. Indianapolis may be starting to get it together. They are tough against good teams.

There are some really good games this week.

Buffalo 24, NY Jets 17 – I can’t figure out the Jets

Detroit 20, Green Bay 34 – Packers should dominate

Carolina 31, Tennessee 19 – Hopefully not a letdown game

Chicago 13, St. Louis 24 – Rams playing well

Miami 17, Philadelphia 24 – Dolphins are bad right now

Cleveland 21, Pittsburgh 23 – Could go either way

Dallas 23, Tampa Bay 20 – Just a feeling

New Orleans 27, Washington 21 – Drew Brees still strong

Jacksonville 16, Baltimore 20 – Home team wins

Minnesota 31, Oakland 23 – Vikings playing well

Kansas City 23, Denver 34 – Broncos angry

New England 35, NY Giants 20 – Payback

Arizona 21, Seattle 24 – Home team has edge in game of the week

Houston 17, Cincinnati 34 – Bengals show off
