Pigskin Predictions

Another lousy 7-7 week puts me at 131-71 for the year. Only a few weeks left to go.

The New York Jets play San Diego at home at 1 p.m. Sunday. Two teams going nowhere this year. I like San Diego, but not by much.

San Diego 23, New York 21

New England plays in Jacksonville at 1 p.m. Sunday. Regardless of what happened Sunday night I will take the Patriots here. I expect a blow-out,

New England 44, Jacksonville 10

The New York Giants play Baltimore away at 4:25 p.m. Sunday. I can’t figure the Giants out. I’m going out on a limb and taking them this week.

New York 24, Baltimore 20
