KC over OAK

Jamaal Charles. That is all

CLE over ATL

Despite being first in the NFC South (Which doesn’t really mean ANYTHING this year), the Falcons are not a good team. Josh Gordon is returning and Coach Mike Smith doesn’t think that the Browns will “ease him in” (See this guy is SMART! He should keep his job Arthur!)

Crowell and West should run all over the Falcons while Gordon obliterates them in the passing game. Sounds like evenly roasted Falcon for lunch this weekend!

PHI over TEN

I’m not anticipating that the Eagles will have any trouble with the Titans, but I also keep forgetting that Sanchez is the starting quarterback… Nah they should be fine!!

NE over DET

This is a tough matchup and a very good game coming up for both teams. I can see this becoming a shootout. It’s going to come down to who makes the most mistakes and I am betting the Patriots make fewer than the Lions. Also, who the hell is Jonas Gray?

GB over MINN

No doubt the Packers will win this one. I just want to see if Cordarelle Patterson will have a good game.

IND over JAX

If you have Andrew Luck on your fantasy team this week, start him. He is going to explode against poor Jacksonville.

CIN over HOU

Welcome back Giovani Bernard. If the Bengals play as well as they played against the Saints, they should beat the Texans.

BUF over NYJ

If we even have this game, the Bills defense has been extremely good lately and should shut down the Jets. The Jets are pretty good at getting to the quarterback as well, but I think Orton can get something going with Sammy Watkins.

TB over CHI

Surprise of the week! The Bears secondary is bad and Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson are hard to cover. Josh McCown should have plenty of time as well since the Bears aren’t good at rushing the quarterback.

Cutler will be under fire from Gerald McCoy and company, so he could be erratic in the passing game as well.

ARI over SEA

Bad news. Arizona specializes in stopping the run. I think they can pick up the win in Seattle.

STL over SD

What the heck happened to the Chargers over the second half of the season? They’ve really been struggling offensively. The Rams once again shocked the world (I’m convinced they activate a Madden cheat every time they play at home). I like them against the Chargers.

MIA over DEN

Manning and Tannehill will both have a rough day but I think the Dolphins can establish the run game early to give Tannehill some breathing room to pass.

SF over WAS

Niners are trending up and Redskins are a dumpster fire with Alfred Morris playing the lone firefighter.

DAL over NYG

The Giants won’t be able to stop DeMarco Murray and that means they probably won’t be able to establish a pass rush to get to Romo when the Cowboys pass. Who thinks Eli can throw more than five interceptions this week??

NO over BAL

Your guess is as good as mine as to which New Orleans Saints team we see this Monday Night. The Saints have always found a way to bring out the best of themselves when they are under the lights of prime time.

Agree or disagree with our picks? Who do you have as a ‘upset of the week’ candidate?
