As I mentioned last week the Falcons would have had to win for Dan Quinn to keep his job. The Falcons went a step further and also fired GM Tom Dimitroff. It looks Arthur Blank felt he got duped by not making changes last year. The team is going in the wrong direction in losing games that they were ahead in and should have won.
I went 10–5 in my straight-up picks and 2-1 against the spread last week.
Last week I had a bad feeling about the Niners, and my hunch was right; they lost to an improving Dolphins team at home. Browns are starting to look like a contender and won again. The Giants break my heart again! After throwing an interception Derek Carr should have been benched but wasn’t.. he then stays in the game and wins at Arrowhead. Texans finally won a game. Panthers continue to impress. Brady lost track of what down it was but the Bucs earned the loss by playing very undisciplined games and drawing penalties at crucial times.
The COVID situation has forced the league to make some scheduling changes this week. I am happy that we have been able to have a season so far.
|At Titans||3||Texans||Finally, the Texans won a game; the Titans will beat this week.||Titans|
|At Colts||8||Bengals||Bengals came back to earth last week, losing to the Ravens. I can’t see them beating the Colts.||Colts|
|At Vikings||4||Falcons||The Falcons problems can’t be fixed in a week. The Vikings will win at home.||Vikings|
|At Giants||2.5||Washington||The Giants will fight hard and win a game that will not be easy to win.||Giants|
|Ravens||7.5||At Eagles||The Eagles won’t be able to compete with the Ravens.||Ravens|
|At Steelers||3||Browns||The Browns are for real and will hand the Steelers their first loss.||Browns||Browns|
|AT Panthers||1.5||Bears||The Panthers are surprising everyone but maybe the Bears are clicking with Nick Foles. I see the Panthers with another win.||Panthers|
|Lions||3||At Jaguars||The Lions are never easy to pick because they usually find a way to disappoint. This week they will get a victory against the Jaguars.||Lions|
|At Patriots||10||Broncos||Newton will be active and Patriots will coast to a win.||Patriots||Patriots|
|At Dolphins||9.5||Jets||Jets will not be the first New York team to win a game. Dolphins confidence is through the roof after recent victories. Dolphins win.||Dolphins|
|Packers||1||At Bucs||The Aaron Rogers’s revenge victory tour continues, Packers will win again.||Packers|
|Rams||3.5||At Niners||Rams will pounce on their wounded rival.||Rams||Rams|
|Cardinals||2||At Cowboys||No Dak equals no win! Murray will be unstoppable.||Cardinals|
The Bills will want to atone for their lackluster performance against the Titans. The Chiefs will also be in an atoning mood. I can’t see the Chiefs losing two in a row.
