Pigskin Predictions

I went 11-4 last week and overall I am 108-61 for the year. I actually had one game score exactly correct last week.

The New York Jets take on Washington at 1 p.m. on Sunday. I have to say the Jets looked pretty bad last Sunday. When did they fall apart? Since this game is in Washington, I’m taking the Skins. The Jets are the better team, but aren’t playing like it.

Washington 21, New York 20

The New England Patriots are at home at 1 p.m. playing Indianapolis. The Pats have a let down as the Colts are winless. Of course, the Pats win anyways!

New England 26, Indianapolis 9

The New York Giants play Green Bay at home at 4:15 p.m. Wow, this is going to be good. Since I don’t think the Packers should finish undefeated, I will take the Giants. I think these two meet again in the playoffs.

New York 35, Green Bay 32

Other Picks

Oakland 24, Miami 17 – Oakland is better than most people think.

Atlanta 28, Houston 23 – Who is the quarterback in Houston is still a question. Falcons are playing well.

Chicago 23, Kansas City 17 – This is going to be a battle.

Denver 17, Minnesota 13 – Tebow finds a way to win.

Tennessee 24, Buffalo 21 – Could go either way!

Pittsburgh 26, Cincinnati 23 – Pittsburgh is at home and pulls it out in their final drive.

Tampa Bay 27, Carolina 24 – Just a feeling.

Baltimore 24, Cleveland 13 – Baltimore is strong again.

Dallas 27, Arizona 24 – Dallas really needs this game, but it will not be easy.

San Francisco 20, St. Louis 3 – The 49ers defense dominates.

New Orleans 37, Detroit 28 – The Saints are at home. Need I say more?

San Diego 24, Jacksonville 19 – Neither team impresses me.

Thursday night

Pittsburgh 28, Cleveland 14 – The Steelers at home should win easily!
