So I’m a day late with Five Pick Friday. I woke up Friday morning feeling as sick as I ever have before. This morning it was even worse. I’m pressing on, and I’m gonna get my five picks down before I lay down on my death bed.
The game everyone will have an eye on will be the FOX National game of the week: the Falcons travel to Foxboro to take on Tom Brady and the Patriots. Bill Belichick got shown up by a young QB last week, and I don’t like the odds of it happening again. The Patriots will win this game.
The Jets welcome the Tennessee Titans to town. I think Tennessee finds a way to beat Rex Ryan’s team. I don’t think Jeff Fisher will be out-gunned by Ryan. The Titans win by a touchdown at the Meadowlands.
Another showdown with Pittsburgh and the Bengals that people seem to have an interest in as a big game. Folks, do you realize that Ben Roethlisberger has lost only 1 start in his life in the state of Ohio; dating back to his High School days? The Steelers will win this game.
The Indianapolis Colts go to Arizona. I like the Colts to win. And if I don’t finish this post I’m not going to get it finished because I am literally struggling that badly.
Upset Pick: For this week’s upset pick, I like the Buffalo Bills to knock off the New Orleans Saints. This is a winnable game at home for the Bills who should be 2-0 and the New Orleans defense looks like it can be had on the right day.
Last Week: 3-2 (Nailed the upset pick)
Overall: 7-3 (.700)
