|NFL Week 9 Picks|
|Last Week: 8-5 Season: 73-43|
|If the Falcons are going to win
another contest, they may not get a better chance than this week versus
the offensively challenged 49ers.
|Carson Palmer is capable of
taking over a football game, but I look for the Bills to be sky-high for
|I don't think the Broncos on the
road can match up against the high-flying Lions. Kitna, who was
ridiculed for his preseason prediction of 10 wins, is halfway there.
|Today's upset special. The
Packers and Bret Favre have never fared well versus the Chiefs,
particularly in Arrowhead Stadium.
|The Vikings' lack of offensive
balance is no match for a Chargers teams that has just started to hit
|Both teams are hot, but look for
the Jaguars apply too much defensive pressure and essentially shut down
the Saints on the road.
|Unless the Redskins are
shell-shocked from last week's butt-kicking, look for them to rebound
this week against a hapless Jets squad.
|In a game that features two solid
defensive units, the gang from Nashville has a decided edge on the
offensive side of the ball.
|Look for the Bucs to rebound
versus a Cardinals team that has struggled to win on the road. One has
to admire the veteran Warner's courage, but the offense has struggled.
|Although the Seahawks have not
run the ball effectively in 2007, look for Alexander to get on track
against a very ordinary Browns defense.
|Betting against Manning and the
defending Super Bowl Champions at home -- I must be crazy. Patriots need
to score quickly and take the Colts out of their game plan.
|Texans are fading fast and will
be without starting QB Matt Schaub. Running game or lack of it really
allows defenses to tee off on their QB.
|My heart goes out to Andy Reid
and his family. I'm sure the Cowboys organization feels the same way,
but don't look for any mercy when the whistle goes off.
|Don't see a lot of scoring in
this battle of defensive giants. I just feel that the Steelers have too
much firepower on offense.
