Pigskin Predictions

After going 13-2 it was evident I would have a bad week last week. I went 8-7 bringing my overall to 70-34. I will get back on track this week.

The New England Patriots take on the Miami Dolphins at 1 p.m. Sunday. Another division rivalry for the Pats. Can they lose two in a row? I certainly hope not.

New England 28, Miami 26

The New York Giants travel to Philadelphia Sunday. Can they win two in a row? I think anything is possible, but I’m still taking the Eagles. New York needs to prove itself.

Philadelphia 27, New York 19

The New York Jets travel to Cincinnati for a 4 p.m. game. Jets played well last week and I think this game will be close

Cincinnati 17, New York 14

Other Games

Carolina 30, Tampa Bay 20 – Maybe not even this close

Detroit 34, Dallas 31 – High scoring game

Kansas City 32, Cleveland 24 – Easy schedule for the Chiefs

New Orleans 33, Buffalo 23 – Who wants to play the Saints at the Superdome?

San Francisco 24, Jacksonville 10 – Not much of a game

Oakland 24, Pittsburgh 17 – Taking the home team

Denver 31, Washington 20– Peyton still rules

Atlanta 21, Arizona 20 – Falcons have the edge
