JAX JAGUARS (+7) @ NEW YORK JETS
Just like your first prom date dive, not too many hairs to split between these two teams. The main difference, one has a veteran QB that's extremely consistent and underrated. The other has a mistake prone rookie who likes mustard on his weiner. Once again, this seems too easy this week...I'll take a free tuddie even though the Jags don't need it!
Final Score: JAXVILLE 27 JETS 23
That's all for Greggy G...but luckily Da Yeker is here for more picks!
SUNDAY FUNDAY PICK FROM DA YEKER
As the weather starts to regress down the thermometer, so does Da Yeker into the hovel he calls home. Despite my hobbit like living, it only spells goodness for readers of the Plays, since all I do now is stare intently at injury reports and bootleg game tape I make with my cell phone camera at bars with the Ticket Package.
Here’s what my shut in science has produced this week:
BUFFALO BILLS @ TENNESSEE TITANS (-8) (Ova 41)
It’s a battle of the not so good versus the even worse. If you asked me tell you which is which, I wouldn’t be able to do it. I do know that since their BYE the bearded Jeff Fisher’s Titans are playing similar to the team we saw last year, racking up 2 home wins in a row against bad teams in SF and Jax. The Bills are every bit as bad those teams. Both teams also are also allowing a combined average of 50 points in total scoring each week.
Final Score: BILLS 21 TITANS 30
CINCINNATI BENGALS (+7) @ PITTSBURGH STEELERS (OVA 41)
The Steelers have been hitting on all cylinders since they scraped out a home win against the Minnesota Favres. Too bad those cylinders haven’t included a strong running game, which would have made their wins less close than they have been. The team that has been running like well oiled engine has been the striped ones from Porkopolis, the Bengals. They can run, throw, and play D. They suffered a big loss this week when Chris Henry went down for the season, but his replacement is named Maurice Purify. I cannot even wordsmith a better name than that. Whoever wins this game will only do it by a field goal, so give me the points
Final Score: BENGALS 21 STEELERS 24
NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (-14) @ ST. LOUIS RAMS
Oh man, man. I want to believe that the Rams used their BYE to scheme up a way to lose by only 13 this week. But, after the Saints nearly blew it against the Panthers last week, I know Sean Peyton will have his crew looking for blood this week in a dome game. Look for the Saints trip up the Mississippi to be an easy one this week.
Final Score: SAINTS 36 RAMS 14
PHILADELPHIA EAGLES @ SAN DIEGO CHARGERS (-1)
San Diego has been stringing together strong wins the past 3 weeks, with a stunning pull out against the Giants in NY last week. Philly looked slow, dumb, and confused in a terrible loss to Dallas last week. Their last trip out west was probably the most amazing loss of the year by any team when they let a wretched Raiders team make them look stupid in a 24 to 16 loss. Look for more of the same in this near pick’em game. Plus, Andy Reid will spend less time game planning due extra time he will be using to scarf down multiple fish tacos thinking he’s eating healthy.
Final Score: EAGLES 28 CHARGERS 34
NEW ENGLAND HOODIES @ INDIANAPOLIS COLTS (-3) (UNDA 48.5)
While you might think with these 2 teams playing with Manning and Brady as QBs, you would expect to see some awesome offense. However, I’ve only got one prediction for the game of the week: ALL D. Indy is #1 in the league in D and New England is #2, combining for an average of only 37 points in total score each week. I also think Indy has just enough extra step this week with NE’s S Brandon Meriweather nursing a serious foot injury.
Final Score: PATRIOTS 20 COLTS 24
