This week has sucked and I am just getting to my picks. I did get Thursday night right
I am exhausted. I will likely sleep through the London game in the morning. I also have a splitting headache, for some reason Probably stress and tension

SO here are my colorful picks for the week.


Jaguars @ Titans Already picked and won

Native Americans @ Panthera tigris' The Stripey cats are not on track to replicate last years success Oddly enough, the NFC East has teams with winning records. Just shows how things change from year to year in the NFL. Maybe the commissioners job will change next?

Leaders of the Cherokee Nation
@ Young Equus ferus caballus' I guess coach Reed finally threatened to sit on whoever does not play up to par because the CHiefs have been looking better.

CARDINALIS cardinalises @ Panthera parduses Talk about disappointing Cats...these pink panthers are having the season like my week....sucky Meanwhile, the PESKY RED BIRDS Want to keep in the top ten

Autumn Wind @ Spanish Pirates I hate to pick so many visiting teams, but in Tampa, it matters not...the Raiders are perfect on the Roadm while the SUccaneers are far from perfect at anything.

Pandeon haliaetuses @ Venerated Dead Catholics Another Bird Issues of Point. Pete Carroll has obviously got the team playing well and what matters is not who starts but who finishes.

Panthera leos @ Texicans Go ahead and pay some guy 72 million dollars to play sports and see how far that gets you. Please note that I do not charge that much and I actually FIX People.

LOYALISTS @ Bison bisons Dare I pick the Patriots to lose twice to the same team in the same year ?


Citation M2's @ PAUL BROWNS EMPLOYEES This is a risky pick, because one it is the pillow fight of the week amd two the Jets usually do not squander away a chance at a sure win, but it is almost Halloween and both franchises operate like they are under some sort of curse, so a win by the football team will give the fans a little to cheer for before a win by the Indains Sunday or Monday pushes the City over the edge. I would hope that the Indians wait to win the world series at home, but something about making people at Wrigley watch the Cubs lose....again.....would be most entertaining.


Uncharged @ Free Range Equus ferus caballus What can you say but revenge on the mind of the horses this week.

Employees of the Acme Packing Company @ FALCO PEREGRINUSES I had picked the last place flag in the NFC SOuth to fly over Atlanta but instead, they may be hoisting a pennant.

Haliaeetus leucocephalus @ Cattle Wranglers
This is traditionally the type of game that shows that in spite of two red hot rookies, Jerry Jones still hired really bad coaches along the way.

NORSE INVADERS @ Ursus arctoses We may have a new number one bottom ten team next week if the team in Cleveland wins and the One in Chicago still plays like a stuffed animal.

Bye: Frisco Gold Rush, Tursiops truncatus , People with Acromegaly,Ovis canadensises , , NEVERMORE! , Steel workers

We're at 107 games through week 7 I think, even with the tie added in, if you choose to go adding it as a loss.

Detroit @ Houston. Instead of spending $72 million on Osweiler the Texans should've spent 72 cents on Hoyer. They would get the same production for 72 million less otherwise to spread throughout other teams needs.
Cincinnati vs. Washington. A 0% chance I wake up for this in London with the incredibly busy week I've had.
KC @ Indianapolis. Have they played since the Chiefs had that epic collapse in the playoffs??
Oakland @ Tampa Bay. Carr & Khalil Mack will smoke a Winston.
Seattle @ New Orleans. The Jimmy Graham bowl.
New York Jets @ Cleveland Browns. If not now than when Browns?? Capitalize on the city championship success!
New England @ Buffalo. Have Brady/Bellicheck EVER lost to the same opponent twice in 1 season??
Arizona @ Carolina. Remember as recently as 10 months ago, this was the game that decided the NFC representative in the Super Bowl. My, how times have changed.
San Diego @ Denver. The Chargers last 2 weeks (Denver win, and the win in Atlanta) have made sure the Broncos will take this seriously. Thankfully, having coach Kubiak back as well will be even better.
Green Bay @ Atlanta. I went back and forth on this. Falcons are who we thought they were! and Packers are due for a run of 2 weeks.
Philadelphia @ Dallas. Road teams seem to have won the majority of these matchups. Will the bye week mess with Dak's momentum?? I'm hoping yes.
Minnesota @ Chicago. If you want to scare kids on Halloween evening, just have them watch 1 series of the Bears offense .

I'm hoping Packers can win this game! Someone commented on a blog, many Packer fans in town. I saw a picture of a line to get in the Packers Everywhere rally, hopefully noticeable tomorrow. I love watching road games and hearing, Go Pack Go on the TV broadcast.

What I meant was regular season. And than like an hour later I read an article in the Wall Street Journal that said the Patriots haven't gotten swept by an opponent (only divisional opponents counted) since 2000

And yet in England they prefer futbol to football as well, and no matter how many teams or games Goodell sends over there, the British will always prefer futbol, so Goodell should stop shoving it down ours & theirs throats.

Since that would only mean someone from that division, I wouldn't say that is a stat to be proud of since that division has been weak since the Brady era started.
