Welcome to our weekly picks post, this week with more organization. Last week, I just posted everyone's picks and explanations individually. We did it that way mostly because I didn't have a better way to do it, and that is mostly because I am stupid. Tex is more intelligent than I am, so he used his sick HTML skillz to organize our picks for this week into a nice neat table.
Here is said table.
|CHI vs. GB||GB||GB||GB|
|KC vs. BUF||KC||KC||BUF|
|NO vs. CAR||NO||NO||CAR|
|CLE vs. CIN||CIN||CIN||CIN|
|MIN vs. IND||MIN||MIN||MIN|
|HOU vs. JAX||HOU||HOU||HOU|
|OAK vs. MIA||OAK||MIA||MIA|
|ARI vs. NE||NE||NE||NE|
|TB vs. NYG||NYG||NYG||NYG|
|BAL vs. PHI||BAL||BAL||BAL|
|DAL vs. SEA||DAL||DAL||DAL|
|WAS vs. STL||WAS||WAS||WAS|
|NYJ vs. PIT||PIT||PIT||PIT|
|TEN vs. SD||SD||SD||SD|
|DET vs. SF||SF||SF||SF|
|DEN vs. ATL||DEN||DEN||DEN|
We'll do some explanations below the jump.
Bears vs. Packers: Green Bay will come out with something to prove tonight after Sunday's game. The Bears' offensive line makes the Packers' pass rush look much improved and keeps Jay Cutler on the run, while Aaron Rodgers keeps on clicking. Packers win by 7, 31-24. - Evan
Chiefs vs. Bills: As the dissenting one, I feel like it's up to me to offer an explanation. Both of these teams got their tails kicked last week by teams who I think are solid borderline playoff teams, but not elite teams. Both of them have average game-manager QBs. I can't separate them at all, so I'm picking the home team. - Kevin
Saints vs. Panthers: The Panthers are a team on the rise and the Saints look to be a team wandering without their leader. I'll stay on the safe side and pick Panthers in that sort of match up, especially when the Panthers are at home. - Devin
Browns vs. Bengals: Cleveland should have beaten the Eagles, but not because they played well. The Bengals defense is decent and Andy Dalton won't be throwing into double coverage on every play. Bengals win by at least two scores. - Evan
Texans vs. Jaguars: The Jaguars are going to surprise some people like they nearly surprised the Vikings last week, but not this week. - Devin
Raiders vs. Dolphins: I'm not really sure where my colleagues' Dolphins picks are coming from. Their quarterback is still Ryan Tannehill. I don't really care that they 'almost' beat the Texans. Maybe I'm just completely full of it. - Kevin
Cowboys vs. Seahawks: I was impressed by the Cowboys in Week 1, and I think they'll be rested, not rusty for this game. The Seahawks are a decent team, but Russell Wilson looked like a rookie last week. He'll look just as much like a rookie against the Cowboys defense. - Kevin
Redskins vs. Rams: Could the Redskins be the team to beat in the NFC East? I don't know, but I will probably watch this game fairly closely, if only to get a sense of how good the Rams are after nearly beating the Lions. - Devin
Jets vs. Steelers: Call me skeptical about Mark Sanchez's success last week. The Bills got no pressure on him at all. He won't have that much time to throw against the Steelers, who have enough weapons in the passing game to find some matchups to work on against the Jets' D. - Evan
Lions vs. 49ers: The Lions could barely hang on against the Rams, do you really think they are going to be able to hang with the Niners? - Devin
Broncos vs. Falcons: I'm believer in the Broncos and I'm not sure if the Falcons can hang 40 week in and week out. Really, this boils down to me believing Peyton Manning has something to prove this year. - Devin
