Don't look much different so far. It is obvious the O-line is the problem in Philly.

I thought today was a vast improvement from previous showings, but yeah, Buffalo just cannot get it done in the clutch. Today was a must win for the Bills. As far as I'm concerned, their season is over.

Had they won, they would have been just one down in the division, and the rest of the schedule looks relatively doable. The horrible defensive pass interference penalties against the Bills really hurt them. There were two calls that were flat out bad on the part of the officials.

I am really sad. A win for Buffalo would have made my day even though I picked NE to win. I really had high hopes for them this year. Fitz is top notch back up QB calibur, but he is not the man to lead them into any type of playoff scenario.

Well I;m 8-2-1 so far with the Texans and Steelers as my final picks.


Surprises of the day

1. Eagles scoring 24 pts.......Thought the Dallas Defense was good enough to hold them to 10 or less

2. The Giants losing 31-13........All that talk about the Defense and they give up 31 pts

3. Bills offense scoring 31 pts in New England........That weak Pats defense will catch up with them

4. The Titans beating the Dolphins..................After giving up 51 pts last week at home

5. The Niners game ending in a tie with the Rams............Maybe the niners are not all that good

Good call!

What is with the trick plays with a huge lead late in the game.
Ravens fake a field goal and win 55 -20. Shouldn't you save the surprise/trick plays for when you really need them? Every team will see that on film. Similar Seahawks do a RB pass late with a lead.

So is this going to go down as "Concussion Sunday" in the NFL with Vick, Smith and now Cutler all getting knocked out of games?

The Ravens probably consider the **** they pulled today a "dress rehearsal." Let 'em blow their load this week, as far as I'm concerned.

Running up the score in a meaningless game, Gatorade baths after sweeping a division opponent, blaming everybody and everything except himself and his team after a loss...seriously, what's not to love about John Harbaugh?

Sunday Night was throwback football -- wind, continuous rain, good defenses. Usually a 13-6 is boring - but not last night.

Been too busy to do predictions of late - we will see how this week fares. This was a good week to miss for me.
