2014 Week 7 Picks



Match Up Pick Winner Commentary
Jets vs Patriots Patriots I don’t see the Jets, at 1-5, winning this divisional match up.
Falcons vs Ravens Ravens Flacco and Ryan were drafted in the same year. Matty Ice needs help on the road.
Vikings vs Bills Bills Until the o-line is better, I’m not picking the Vikings to win anything at this point.
Dolphins vs Bears Bears Bears are 0-2 at home. Maybe this game will break the curse.
Saints vs Lions Lions Lions at the top of the NFC North. That’s better than those Packer losers.
Panthers vs Packers Packers I’d love to be wrong about this.
Bengals vs Colts Bengals Going on instinct here.
Browns vs Jaguars Browns Jaguars are 0-6. I don’t think this game is going to help them.
Seahawks vs Rams Seahawks This could be a trap game for the Seahawks after the Cowboys stomped them.
Titans vs Washington Titans Another instinct pick.
Chiefs vs Chargers Chargers Andy Reid’s magic of 2013 has waned.
Giants vs Cowboys Cowboys Cowboys lit up the Seahawks… look for a Bad Eli appearance.
Cardinals vs Raiders Cardinals Going with the Cardinals in this match up.
49ers vs Broncos Broncos You don’t argue with Peyton Manning (or his forehead) at home.
Texans vs Steelers Steelers I wavered between the Texans and the Steelers. Went with the home team.

2014 Week 6 Picks Results


I did pretty well this week, if I do say so myself.

 

Match Up Pick Winner Commentary
Colts vs Texans Colts Colts Fairly close game; Colts squandered a sizable early lead.
Patriots vs Bills Patriots Patriots Decisive 15 point victory for those “has-been” Patriots.
Panthers vs Bengals Bengals TIE Game went to OT. And then they tied. The end.
Steelers vs Browns Browns Browns Steelers got whooped.
Packers vs Dolphins Packers Packers Breaking news: Packers resort to cheating with a fake spike to win.
Lions vs Vikings Vikings Lions Clearly I was drunk when I picked the Vikings to win anything.
Broncos vs Jets Broncos Broncos Broncos handled the Jets pretty handily on their own turf.
Ravens vs Buccaneers Ravens Ravens Ravens destroyed the Bucs. Lovie/Leslie: bad combo platter.
Jaguars vs Titans Titans Titans Just a 2 point victory for the Titans over the now 0-6 Jaguars.
Chargers vs Raiders Chargers Chargers Raiders came close, though.
Washington vs Cardinals Cardinals Cardinals A late interception killed any chance for Washington to tie.
Bears vs Falcons Falcons Bears Bears stomped the Falcons in their own house.
Cowboys vs Seahawks Seahawks Cowboys Seahawks were stunned by a fired up 5-1 Cowboys team.
Giants vs Eagles Eagles Eagles Giants were shut out. Let’s hope Victor Cruz & Sproles are ultimately ok.
49ers vs Rams 49ers 49ers Rams fought hard.

2014 Week 6 Picks


Let’s see if the Vikings can get a win this week.

 

Match Up Pick Winner Commentary
Colts vs Texans Colts I’d watch JJ Watt dance all day… but those Texans aren’t in a groove.
Patriots vs Bills Patriots Tom’s back.
Panthers vs Bengals Bengals Bengals didn’t win last week but they’re home this week.
Steelers vs Browns Browns Call me crazy…
Packers vs Dolphins Packers This’ll be the week the Dolphins win. I’d be happy to be wrong here…
Lions vs Vikings Vikings Teddy! Teddy! Teddy!
Broncos vs Jets Broncos Geno Smith made sure Ponder didn’t have the lowest QB rating last week.
Ravens vs Buccaneers Ravens Ravens should have this one in the bag.
Jaguars vs Titans Titans This will be a close game.
Chargers vs Raiders Chargers This CA match up probably won’t be all that close.
Washington vs Cardinals Cardinals Cardinals will win at home.
Bears vs Falcons Falcons LOLBears. I hate that team. Matty Ice is on his home turf for a likely win.
Cowboys vs Seahawks Seahawks Tony Romo isn’t choking much but the 12th man will be active.
Giants vs Eagles Eagles This is a toss up… but I’m going to predict that Bad Eli makes an appearance.
49ers vs Rams 49ers Hmmm… Rams. No.

Well, here we go. Let’s see what this week brings.

 

Match Up Pick Winner Commentary
Vikings vs Packers Packers We’re down 5 starters. Possibly 6. No way we’re winning.
Bears vs Panthers Bears They’ll probably let me down. Again.
Browns vs Titans Browns Browns are probably up to the task.
Eagles vs Rams Eagles The Eagles have been looking pretty good. Rams lost to the Vikings.
Falcons vs Giants Giants Falcons could win this if Bad Eli shows up. Eli is unpredictable though.
Buccaneers vs Saints Saints I hate the Saints.
Texans vs Cowboys Cowboys Romo has not been choking. He still could, but maybe not this week.
Bills vs Lions Lions Lions are pretty decent this season. Which is troubling.
Ravens vs Colts Ravens Why not the Ravens?
Steelers vs Jaguars Steelers Jaguars could surprise us.
Cardinals vs Broncos Broncos Cardinals are good but the Broncos are at home.

2014 Week 4 Picks Results


Note to self: think less, trust your instincts more.

 

Match Up Pick Winner Commentary
Giants vs Washington Giants Giants Good Eli showed up and had himself a blast.
Panthers vs Ravens Ravens Ravens Ravens dismantled the Panthers.
Packers vs Bears Bears Packers Stupid Bears.

Lions vs Jets Lions Lions Lions got the job done.
Dolphins vs Raiders Raiders Dolphins Dolphins: I hate you on principle because you always do the opposite.
Buccaneers vs Steelers Steelers Bucs Vincent Jackson pulls in a catch in the end zone with 7 seconds to go. Sigh.

Falcons vs Vikings Falcons Vikings Bridgewater started and he was excellent.
Eagles vs 49ers 49ers 49ers Early on, Eagles looked like they were going to trounce the Niners. Nope.
Saints vs Cowboys Cowboys Cowboys I was not wrong.
Patriots vs Chiefs Patriots Chiefs My gut instinct was to choose the Chiefs. I should have went with that.

2014 Week 4 Picks


My picks were 10-6 last week. Decent but I feel I should be better at this point in the season. If only these teams would do what I think they’re going to do. Here are my picks for this week.

 

Match Up Pick Winner Commentary
Giants vs Washington Giants I feel like maybe Eli’s luck might continue.
Panthers vs Ravens Ravens Ravens squeaked by last week but could look stronger against the Panthers.
Packers vs Bears Bears LOLPackers. I’ve learned my lesson about picking against the Bears. Probably just in time for them to lose. I *really* want the Packers to have 2 division losses though… that just sounds delicious.
Bills vs Texans Texans It takes two to make it outta sight. Bills won’t beat the Texans at home.
Titans vs Colts Colts Colts have home field advantage. And a little Luck. Too cliché?
Lions vs Jets Lions Not really laughing about the Lions anymore.
Dolphins vs Raiders Raiders Dolphins: I hate you on principle because you always do the opposite.
Buccaneers vs Steelers Steelers Steelers should have no trouble here, as long as last week’s Bucs show up to play this week.
Jaguars vs Chargers Chargers Chargers are on a roll.
Falcons vs Vikings Falcons Yeah… I love the Vikings, but we’re not winning anything against a good team. We have too many injuries and an RB who is useless to us.
Eagles vs 49ers 49ers I’m almost tempted to pick the Eagles. The 49ers are either in a slump or have started sucking for real. I guess this game will tell us what’s what.
Saints vs Cowboys Cowboys Prevailing wisdom indicates that the Saints will take this one – but let’s remember that their only win is against the hapless Vikings. Just prior to that they were 0-2 and not looking so hot.
Patriots vs Chiefs Patriots My gut instinct is to choose the Chiefs at home. Especially since the Patriots have not been looking like the powerhouse of olden days. My brain says: Patriots. We’ll see which part of me is right.

2014 Week 3 Picks Results


Not a terrible showing with the picks this week but it could have been better. Note to self: stop picking against Chicago. That’s been a terrible strategy to date.

Match Up Pick Winner Commentary
Buccaneers vs Falcons Falcons Falcons LOLBucs. Holy lopsided cow.
Chargers vs Bills Chargers Chargers Chargers held the Bills to 10.
Cowboys vs Rams Cowboys Cowboys Cowboys with a major comeback. Interception to seal the deal.
Washington vs Eagles Eagles Eagles Nail-biter. A tied up at 27 half-way thru the 4th. 2 ejections…
Texans vs Giants Texans Giants Sad Eli must be feeling pretty happy today.
Vikings vs Saints Saints Saints What didn’t go wrong for the Vikings? 5 players hurt, Cassel out, Teddy in.
Titans vs Bengals Bengals Bengals Bengals dominated and Dalton caught a  TD reception.
Ravens vs Browns Browns Ravens Ravens snuck by with a late field goal.
Packers vs Lions Lions Lions LOLPackers. Lions held them to 7.
Colts vs Jaguars Colts Colts Colts manhandled the Jaguars.
Raiders vs Patriots Patriots Patriots Patriots won, but not decisively.
49ers vs Cardinals 49ers Cardinals Hmmm… seems like the Niners have been exposed!
Broncos vs Seahawks Seahawks Seahawks … in overtime with a flying TD. Manning almost did it…
Chiefs vs Dolphins Dolphins Chiefs … and that’s what I get for picking the Dolphins. They always fail me.
Steelers vs Panthers Panthers Steelers Steelers manhandled the Panthers on their own turf.
Bears vs Jets Jets Bears The Jets could have won. The Jets should have won. Ugh.
