Well The Texans have been exposed tonight and was not expecting them to be down at home on national TV 42-17. I knew the Packers needed this game to avoid a 2-4 record but for some reason I felt it wouldn't matter because the texans were home and the Packers had a weak defense.


Have to give credit to the Packers, they have not looked like this all season.

I had the Packers as well Susan. It's looking like I will have 4 losses going into tomorrow night's Broncos-Chargers game.

Brady rarely throws picks in the redzone--so glad Seattle won!

Brady threw the ball nearly 60 times?! Really? That is horrible. When is someone going to get on Belichek as much as they do Andy Reid about that obvious offensive imbalance?

Packers? I would have put the Browns instead.

I picked them to loose because even Sanchez was looking competent last week against the Texans' secondary. The secondary is improved - they just don't seem to be turning around for the ball in time. Running game has not been at last year's level. I see them every week - so they did not fool me.

yeah for the money I would have picked the Eagles, Texans, Niners, Vikings, and Pats. And out of all of them I would have considered the Eagles the BEST BET of the day. Just never know what to expect in the NFL each week.

That's the truth. Who would have thought Russel Wilson rookie QB would beat Rodgers and Brady this year?

Pittsburgh @ Tennessee (Thursday night)

Oakland @ Atlanta
Kansas City @ Tampa Bay
Indianapolis @ NY Jets
Cincinnati @ Cleveland
Detroit @ Philadelphia
St. Louis @ Miami
Dallas @ Baltimore
Buffalo @ Arizona
New England @ Seattle
NY Giants @ San Francisco
Minnesota @ Washington
Green Bay @ Houston

Denver @ San Diego (Monday night)
Crappy week for sure. The bright side for me though is that Buffalo won and the Pats lost!
