Norv get his offensive coordinator job back after this one.@ SD – KC did not look pretty last week against the Raiders but SD has not been too impressive this season either. They only managed 6 points against Cleveland. Come on, Cleveland? Everyone’s scoring on Cleveland. I’m looking for an upset win here with KC taking the victory. Perhaps
DEN @ CIN – Can’t tell if P. Manning has finally hit the groove with this group yet. At the beginning of the season I was on the Denver bandwagon with many others as I reflected on their brief playoff run last year. Adding Manning had to be a huge upgrade, right? Adding a top tier QB, granted he was coming off injury, had to make them a contender once again. However, he’s seemed a little rusty or maybe not on the same page with the receivers. I can see both being reasonable excuses for the some of the interceptions. I think the team is now gelling and will beat the Bengals. Dumerville and Miller should apply the pressure on Dalton and Manning will put up the points.
BAL @ CLE – The Ravens are another group has underwhelmed this year. They play the hapless browns. I think Baltimore leaves this one feeling pretty good about winning on the Browns home turf.
ARI @ GB – Green Bay is favored by 11 on their home field. I think it may be closer than that but feel like Green Bay will win this one at home. GB is looking good down the stretch while AZ loses ground.
BUF @ HOU – Both teams have had a couple weeks to prepare. Poor Buffalo will get dominated by a rested, hungry Houston team. Look out Bills.
MIA @ IND – What’s going on here? Both these teams have winning records and are in 2nd place in their respective divisions. On the whole I think Indy has beat the higher quality teams and I have to think they win this one on their home turf. Plus Mathis is back and this is good for the pass rush even if he’s just a decoy.
DET @ JAC – Even though Jacksonville is on their home field, they just are not that good. They leave the stadium at 1 and 7 while the Lions even up their record.
CHI@TEN – Chicago continues their roll of consecutive wins. Seriously, everyone saying Chris Johnson is back will be depressed after this one is done. Da Bears will shut him down and Forte will be the back everyone is taking about after this one is done.
CAR@WAS – RGIII seems to be everything Cam is not. Composed, mature, a team guy. 100% effort all the time. This guy can lead the club house and this week, he’ll lead the team to victory. Cam, not so much.
TB @ OAK – I actually think this will be a good match up. Oakland had played OK after the first couple weeks and heck they came very closed to beating Atlanta in Atlanta. I will actually take Oakland in this one – Don’t make me regret it!
MIN@ SEA – So many surprising teams this year. Here are 2 more. Seattle’s defense will be a little too much for the scrappy Vikes. Ponder and A Pete will do their part but it won’t be enough this time.
PIT @ NYG – It will be very tough for Pittsburgh to go in to New York and win this game. However, with a strong running game and a defense that seems to be putting themselves back together, I think they can do it. They have to have better DB play in order to slow down Manning and those receivers. With X-Factor Troy Polamalu out, this will be a huge challenge but I’m betting on Big Ben and the rest of the black and gold.
DAL @ ATL – Marquee match up. Atlanta figures out a way to get it done one way or the other. I think they do it again this week and the old ’72 Dolphins start to get a little nervous.
PHI @ NO – After Vick gets benched halfway through the game for making poor audible calls and coughing up the ball, New Orleans will roll to victory over the mysterious Dynasty Eagles.
