St. Louis, Miami and the Giants all have decent shots at it. Going out on a limb and picking the Rams out of those choices

I think Baltimore over Pittsburgh is the safest upset pick here though, if you count that as an upset

San Francisco at Atlanta - It cracks me up how San Fran is the "dark horse" every year, yet they suck it annually.

Cincinnati at Cleveland - Division rivalry. Don't be suprised if the Steamers pull one out of their a-hole.

NY Jets at Buffalo - Go Bills!

Seattle at St. Louis - "Upset" pick of the week.

Denver at Tennessee - Orton continues to throw for mad yardage.

Detroit at Green Bay - This will get ugly. I don't mean 18 penalties ugly, either.

Baltimore at Pittsburgh - Toughest team in the NFL right now even without their franchise QB under Center.

Carolina at New Orleans - I'd love to see Jimmy Clausen light 'em up but I just don't see it happening. The Saints are superior in every aspect.

Indianapolis at Jacksonville - Jigga, please.

Houston at Oakland - Upset Special #2. The Texans continue to fall back to Earth a bit...

Washington at Philadelphia - They're high as kites in Philly right now and it's not because the crack is any better than it was last season. Mike Vick runs for 50 and throws for 200+ with a couple scores. Eagles 24 - 'Skins 13.

Arizona at San Diego - I'm hoping to see Rivers get punched in the labia.

Chicago at NY Giants - I don't think Duh Bears are as good as their 3-0 record indicates. I'm predicting Jay Cutler will implode and will get picked off at least 3 times.

New England at Miami - Pick 'em. I'll take the HoF QB in Prime Time to win by 10.

MIA for the upset.



A few years ago this would be considered an upset. Not so much these days.

I'm curious to see how New Orleans will handle Deangelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart.

San Francisco at Atlanta - San Francisco is complete sh*t. Why do people consistently pick them to go ANYWHERE

Cincinnati at Cleveland - This is rather straight forward

NY Jets at Buffalo - See above

Seattle at St. Louis - Who gives a sh*t game of the week

Denver at Tennessee - I trust Young more than Orton

Detroit at Green Bay -This will be a stomping of epic proportions

Baltimore at Pittsburgh - Their luck has to run out some time, right?

Carolina at New Orleans - New Orleans isn't showing me much right now :(

Indianapolis at Jacksonville - Who isn't lighting up Jacksonville these days

Houston at Oakland -Oakland never ceases to amaze me at how crappy they can be

Washington at Philadelphia - Vick and the Eagles offense should be enough to get past Haynesworth and the 4 whole downs he'll play this game

Arizona at San Diego San Diego has had their slow start, they should drop a couple more, but this won't be one

Chicago at NY Giants - Giants=crap

New England at Miami - If you can't stop the Jets offense you're not gonna stop the Patriots

Upset Giants over the Bears??
Didn't realize the Bears are considered a top team now, just because its week 3 and they have been lucky!

I think Rams will pull off the win. They are looking like a whole new team with Bradford at the helm! Expect the Rams to continue this with a 10 point win over Seatte!
