There are the picks. Now here’s the analysis of those choices.
Indianapolis at Tennessee. This should be a stretch-the-legs game for the Titans.
Cincinnati at Pittsburgh. As of this writing Big Ben’s status is uncertain as he’s being watched as part of the league’s COVID-19 protocol. The pick is assuming he plays but regardless, the Steelers should have enough to beat the Bengals, even tho Joe Burrow is showing signs he could burrow this franchise out of its annual hole in the ground.
Houston at Cleveland. Deshawn Watson can’t be stopped by Cleveland.
Jacksonville at Green Bay. Does this need any explanation?
Philadelphia at NY Giants. I like the Giants – they are playing hard and their coach is a hard-liner, benching a player for acting like an individual rather than as part of the team. Plus the Eagles have been sputtering like a used car all season.
Tampa Bay at Carolina. Surely, Tom Brady can’t be bad two weeks in a row.
Washington at Detroit. This pick says a lot more about that Washington team than it says about that Detroit team.
Buffalo at Arizona. I’m starting to believe in Kyler Murray.
Denver at Las Vegas. The Raiders have Josh Jacobs at running back and the lightening-fast Ruggs at receiver. They need to keep feeding the ball to the former and get the ball more often to the latter. With Jerry Jeudy playing for Denver, this may be a fun battle of the receivers to watch between these former Alabama teammates.
LA Chargers at Miami. Sure, Tua had a fantastic game last week and threw the winning touchdown pass and this is nothing against him. It’s just that I have a feeling the Chargers – in keeping with their decades-old tradition – will stage a late-season rally, only to fall one game short of making the playoffs.
Seattle at LA Rams. Expecting the Seahawks to be a little ticked off after losing to Buffalo last week and anyway, they can easily outscore the Rams.
San Francisco at New Orleans. It’s really a shame the 49ers have collapsed with all those injuries. That being said, am expecting the Saints to lay one of their typical eggs after a dominating game. If it’s this one then it will still be enough to down the boys by the Bay.
Baltimore at New England. It’s so unusual to see the Patriots this bad. That’s what happens when you have an Auburn quarterback as your starter. And one as your backup. Why doesn’t bill belichick play Damian Harris more at running back!? Did you see him carry that pile of Jets defenders an extra 7-8 yards on Monday Night Football?
Minnesota at Chicago. The offensive-challenged Bears do seem to win when it’s hardly expected of them. But notice the lack of confidence in this happening with the the low confidence points in the pick.
