Time for your prodigious prognosticator, The Greg One, to go back on the record. Last week was a lot more like it with a 10-6 record. Quick shout out to the Buffalo Bills for laying down a monstrous come from behind win over the Raiders and to the Dallas Cowboys for doing the same and in turn, saving me in the Survivor pool. My upset special, the Colts, failed to deliver but won’t stop me from trying to find one this week.
New England at Buffalo
Still don’t believe the hype. Bills are beating cupcakes. New England wins 32-17.
Jacksonville at Carolina
Newton versus new Jaguars starter Blaine Gabbert. Newton wins at home 27-20.
San Francisco at Cincinnat
There’s no reason to watch this game and less reason to predict it. Coin flip says Bengals win 20-13.
Miami at Cleveland
Miami is 0-2, Cleveland is 1-1 so this will be my upset special. Dolphins win 22-16.
Detroit at Minnesota
Lions are for real. Lions shame Vikings 34-10.
Houston at New Orleans
Texans can’t outscore Saints…yet. If Foster was playing at full strength I would call it the other way. For now, Saints win 32-21.
New York Giants at Philadelphia
Philadelphia crushes Eli Manning. Eagles win 31-17.
Denver at Tennessee
Titans beat Denver so bad Tebow will get to play QB in 4th quarter. Titans win 38-10.
New York Jets at Oakland
Still no game on the horizon I could pick the Raiders to win. This won’t be the one either. Jets win 23-14.
Kansas City at San Diego
The perfect tonic for a bad loss at Foxboro is the hapless Chiefs rolling into town. San Diego romps 35-7.
Baltimore at St. Louis
Ravens remember how to play defense and win 24-17.
Green Bay at Chicago
Jay Cutler will spend more time on the grass than the Bears logo. Packers win 37-16.
Arizona at Seattle
Cardinals win 24-13.
Atlanta at Tampa Bay
Toss up. Falcons in 23-21.
Pittsburgh at Indianapolis
Horror movie come to life. Pittsburgh destroys Colts 34-3.
Washington at Dallas
Still don’t believe in the Redskins. Dallas wins at home 20-13.
Not much intrigue this week but The Greg One is setting the bar high for the other weekly pickers here at the Beat. One bonus pick…Rampage Jackson upsets Jon Jones for UFC Light Heavyweight title.
