Sorry there was no recap this week. Contrary to popular belief, it's not that I offed myself or drank myself into a 2 day bender after Monday night's loss. Much more innocuous explanation: I was at retreat where I didn't have very good Internet access or TV, thus I missed most of Monday's debacle. Believe me, I am grateful.
Anyway, on to this week's picks, unadorned edition, since I'm on leg two of this business trip and on my iPad.
It's Dallas week. Am I excited? Pumped up? Out for blood?
Nope. This season is officially in the toilet.
Yeah, the teams have identical records, but it feels to me like Elvis has already left the building, the fat lady is already singing, insert your favorite metaphor, good night the party is over.
I'm calling the Cowboys. F it.
Colts at Jaguars: Colts
Giants at Bengals: G-men. Who are going to win the NFC East this year, in case you were wondering.
Chargers at Buccaneers: Bucs
Titans at Dolphins: Fins
Broncos at Panthers: did the Panthers turn their season around with the win over the Skins last week? Nah. Broncos.
Bills at Patriots: Pats
Raiders at Ravens: Ravens
Falcons at Saints: really want to go Saints, but I just can't see it. Falcons.
Lions at Vikings: Vikes. Also probably going to be a pretty good game.
Jets at Seahawks: Seahawks. You know what they - or at least I - say: don't pick against the Hawks at home. Particularly when your other option is the Jets.
Rams at 49ers: Niners. Also probably going to be a decent game. In fact, you might want to watch this rather than Eagles/Cowboys, which I suspect will just be depressing.
Texans at Bears: finally a good Sunday night game! I've got the Texans, but this one could easily go either way.
Chiefs at Steelers: this will not be a good game. Steelers. Also, might want to take the fam to go see Argo or something. It's getting good word of mouth, and is supposed to be exciting and suspenseful, neither of which will be able to be said about this game.
On bye: Browns, Cardinals, Packers, Redskins
