Huge win for Oakland. They should have a lot of confidence heading into Denver now that they beat a tough Pittsburgh team. Darrius Heyward-Bay is out of the hospital, and they’re looking to get to 2-2. On the other hand though, Manning has played close games against two premier teams that might have been victories if a possession had of gone his way. I think Oakland learns just what makes this Manning kid special.
My Pick: Broncos
Dolphins versus Cardinals
Seriously did not expect the Cardinals to be 3-0 this season. The Dolphins have a lot of talent on that roster, but I don’t see them putting it all together and getting a win considering the way the Cardinals have done things lately.
My Pick: Cardinals
Some things you just can’t predict.
Redskins versus Buccaneers
This could be a great match up. I have a lot of faith in RGIII considering the effort he just turned in against the Bengals in a tight Week 3 loss. The Bucs are good, but I think RGIII wins it for the Skins. I’ll bet you Schiano blitzes the QB during the kneel down and RGIII turns it into a 70 yard touchdown run.
My Pick: Redskins
Saints versus Packers
Who would have thought that these two teams would be under .500 right now. Both teams are desperate for a win but I’ve gotta go with the Packers for this one. It’s at Lambeau, and I still think they’re pissed about that game (just a hint).
My Pick: Packers
Giants versus Eagles
I have no faith in Michael Vick considering that lackluster effort that he put in against Arizona. I think the Giants are going to contain Philly’s offense and prove that this Super Bowl hangover thing is just pure nonsense.
My Pick: Giants
Bears versus Cowboys
This could be a good one. One of these teams will be 3-1. The Bears have a good defense and a dynamic return man in Devin Hester, but I still have questions about Jay Cutler. I think in a battle of choke artists Dallas wins because their defense puts Cutler on the ground and Romo finds a way to get the win.
My Pick: Cowboys
My record: 25-23
The Steelers and Colts have their byes this week.
Check the blog out tomorrow. I have a special feature on a certain person from Akron.
