Feel free to add your picks to the comments (rules below). My picks are in red:
Arizona Cardinals at Baltimore Ravens: This one is not as obvious as it appears on paper. Regardless, the Ravens should still win a squeaker.
San Diego Chargers at Green Bay Packers: I predict a painful day for Lord Favre.
Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans: If WR Andre Johnson was playing, the Texans might have a chance. Without him, take the Colts.
Minnesota Vikings at Kansas City Chiefs: If there's a more boring matchup this weekend, I don't see it.
Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots: I don't need the video to know who's going to win this one.
Miami Dolphins at New York Jets: If Mangini is half the coach he's supposed to be, the Jets should win.
Detroit Lions at Philadelphia Eagles: When Donovan McNabb made his comment about how hard it is for black quarterbacks, I doubt he had the Lions in mind, but he'll definitely be thrown (and throwing) to them this week.
San Francisco 49ers at Pittsburgh Steelers: Take gold over steel this week.
St. Louis Rams at Tampa Bay Buccaneers: The Rams are struggling with offensive line woes, while the Bucs look like they might be for real.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Denver Broncos: Denver at home is hard to beat, especially for the Jags.
Cleveland Browns at Oakland Raiders: Don't expect the Browns offense to look like it did last week.
Cincinnati Bengals at Seattle Seahawks: Don't expect the Bengals offense to look like it did last week either, but they should still beat the Hawks.
Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons: The Panthers aren't great, but they are good enough to beat these bums.
New York Giants at Washington Redskins: Both of these teams are beat up, but at least the Skins seem to have some depth.
Dallas Cowboys at Chicago Bears: The game of the week, but only because these two teams match up well. I lean towards the Bears, but only because of their great defense and the unstoppable Devin Hester on special teams.
Tennessee Titans at New Orleans Saints: The Young-Bush Bowl. The Saints need this win desperately.
Pigskin Pick'em Rules:
1. Pick the straight-up winners of all this weeks NFL games (excluding any Thursday games). Picks will be accepted in the comments section of the following websites: Politics and Pigskins, Ragged Thots, and American Legends. All picks must be posted by 1 pm Eastern Time on Sunday, or by the kickoff of the first NFL Saturday game on weeks when that happens.
2. The winner gets...bragging rights! (you weren't expecting money, were you?)
3. And new for this year: I will be keeping a running tally for the season, so the person who gets the most picks correct for the whole season, including the playoffs, gets...even BIGGER bragging rights! (and still no money)
