After a couple of rough weeks, the Acme Packing Company staff finally bounced back well in week 4, as six out of the seven of us picking games were at least 3 games over.500 on the week. With the Packers off, though, there was no personal stake in any of the games, so as they take the field against the Lions on Sunday we have to try to remove personal biases once again. I'm not so sure it worked.
Ultimately, it appears that all of us have faith in Clay Matthews' return (I know that's why I'm picking Green Bay). Here are this week's picks:
|Bills vs. Browns||CLE||CLE||CLE||CLE||CLE||CLE|
|Ravens vs. Dolphins||MIA||MIA||BAL||BAL||MIA||MIA|
|Saints vs. Bears||NO||NO||NO||NO||CHI||NO|
|Patriots vs. Bengals||NE||NE||CIN||NE||NE||NE|
|Lions vs. Packers||GB||GB||GB||GB||GB||GB|
|Seahawks vs. Colts||IND||SEA||IND||SEA||IND||SEA|
|Jaguars vs. Rams||STL||STL||STL||STL||JAX||STL|
|Chiefs vs. Titans||KC||KC||KC||KC||KC||KC|
|Eagles vs. Giants||NYG||NYG||PHI||PHI||NYG||NYG|
|Panthers vs. Cardinals||CAR||ARI||CAR||CAR||ARI||CAR|
|Broncos vs. Cowboys||DEN||DEN||DEN||DEN||DEN||DEN|
|Texans vs. 49ers||SF||SF||SF||SF||SF||SF|
|Chargers vs. Raiders||SD||SD||SD||SD||SD||SD|
|Jets vs. Falcons||ATL||ATL||ATL||ATL||ATL||ATL|
You probably notice a lot of unanimous games again this week, including a few that surprised me. I figured somebody would pick the Bills to win tonight, and that there would be at least one person picking the Texans or Titans. Only a couple of games are real toss-ups this week, as we're pretty well split on Seattle-Indy and Carolina-Arizona.
As for the overall standings, there really wasn't much ground gained by anyone. Eric maintained his one-game lead over Jason, as both of them went 9-6. Nobody was more than one game better or worse than that record, but VCF led the way at 10-5.
