Ghengis, you are funny! I'm always amused and sometimes getting my dictionary out! If I go to London I won't wear a cheesehead!

I too wish the NFL would stop the London Games. But Wait, Goodell has more bad ideas for us this season: Monday night November 21 Raiders vs Texans at Estadia Revengo de la Montezuma in Mexico City.
Just another bad idea form the mind of Goodell.

Thursday Night Prediction I will join the rest and pick the home team
Jaguars at TITANS

Rest will be picked later

Mexico City is not as bad as London though, since Mexico City is at least in the Central Time Zone so the game can kick off at normal time. If they are trying to expand to Latin America though, I doubt it will ever work since they prefer futbol to football there.

Last Week: 9-5-1
Season: 59-44-1

Last week broke a streak of just being a little above or below .500, so I hope I can stay on a this (small) roll...

This week's picks:

Jaguars @ Titans - Yuck. But someone has to win, right?

Redskins @ Bengals - Im pretty sure Cincy will find a way to lose.

Cardinals @ Panthers - Panthers are doomed. Cardinals will get a reprieve--at least for a week, anyway...

Lions @ Texans - Are we watching Matthew Stafford become a better QB before our very eyes? If the answer is yes, the Lions win this game.

Seahawks @ Saints - Saints are always able to put up points at home, but their D could be exactly what the doctor ordered for Seattle...

Packers @ Falcons - Pack havent solved their problems, they just played the Bears. Atlanta wins at home.

Raiders @ Buccaneers - Raiders do seem to win on the road, but the Bucs arent exactly terrible--but I will go with Oakland (and will probably get burned for it)

Patriots @ Bills - Buffalo is going to get crushed. If they were for real, they would have won last week.

Jets @ Browns - I am going to do it, I am going to do it! This is where the Jets (and by proxy, Fitzpatrick) will fall on their face. Well, actually, the Jets have been falling all season long. Actually, Fitz wont stumble here, he's mad, and its the Browns. Plus, nothing is on the line. However, I am still going to pick the Browns because they have to win sometime, right?

Chiefs @ Colts - I dont believe in the Colts now. They will need to overhaul that front office at the end of the season (like they should have done at the end of last season).

Chargers @ Broncos - I'll take Denver at Mile High.

Vikings @ Bears - Someone PLEASE stop putting the Bears on National television. I really hate watching their games. If the Vikings dont crush them here, it will be because Sam Bradford has regressed--again...

Eagles @ Cowboys - Cowboys O-line vs Eagles D-line. This week, I will pick the O-line since they are at home...

Something tells me the eagles defense is going to get sick of hearing about the Dallas o-line and come out aggressive and cause a problem. Just have that feeling.

I sure wish I could get excited about tonight's Jags vs Titans drama.

Actually, it'll be tough even getting all the way up to "excited".

Maybe if I slam down a massive amount of coffee all day...?

Hey, why not? I can sleep next month!
