Pigskin Predictions

I was 7-8 last week putting me at 130-63 for the year. I need to get much better.

The Patriots looked awful last week, but it was just one game so no worries. I was not impressed with anyone.

Carolina being undefeated definitely is the strongest team. Cincinnati and Arizona are still looking good. Denver seems better without Peyton Manning. It should be interesting when he returns. My Top 5 is pretty clear.

Minnesota 28, Arizona 31 – Cardinals win by field goal

Washington 21, Chicago 20 – Redskins have more to play for

Pittsburgh 24, Cincinnati 28 – Could be an upset here

San Francisco 17, Cleveland 20 – Boring

Kansas City 45, San Diego 28 – Lots of scoring

Detroit 33, St Louis 21 – Not liking the Rams

Tennessee 20, NY Jets 23 – Jets should pull it out

Buffalo 23, Philadelphia 24 – Who cares?

New Orleans 24, Tampa Bay 27 – Bucs squeak it out

Atlanta 24, Carolina 30 – Panthers could lose this one

Indianapolis 34, Jacksonville 33 – I like Colts here

Seattle 30, Baltimore 17 – I’m thinking Seahawks win big

Oakland 23, Denver 28 – Broncos win again

Dallas 28, Green Bay 24 – Packers are erratic

New England 23, Houston 17 – Patriots can’t lose three in a row

NY Giants 23, Miami 20 – Don’t like either one
