Last Week: 12-4
Overall: 112-64

Redskins @ Cowboys-I'm thoroughly enjoying the downward spiral of the Cowboys. Hopefully Cousins earns his franchise money and takes Dallas behind the woodshed tonight.

Vikings @ Falcons -Viqueens are due for a stumble. They've won 7 in a row. Falcons are going to be hungrier for a win since they reside in the competitive NFC South. Minnesota can lose this and still be okay.

Texans @ Titans -I remember the Titans used to be bad, but this season the Fighting Mariotas are cruising to the AFC South crown. I don't trust Jacksonville and Bortles to win this division.

Chiefs @ Jets-There was a point in this season when the Chiefs were being called the best team in the league. They sure have fallen from grace. I said a few weeks back that I'm not picking the Jets anymore, so I'm sticking with that.

Broncos @ Dolphins-Both these teams are lousy, so I'll take the Fins at home.

Colts @ Jaguars -The Jags easy schedule continues. The Colts are competitive, but they don't win very often. That's the classic sign of a bad team in the NFL.

Buccaneers @ Packers -I still believe in the Pack and hope Brett Hundley smokes a Winston at Lambeau.

Lions @ Ravens -This is a tough one. I usually don't pick against Jim Bob Cooter, but I'll take the Ravens in an ugly squeaker.

Patriots @ Bills-Patriots haven't clinched home field advantage yet, so they will keep winning against a Bills team that is singlehandedly destroying my picking record this season.

49ers @ Bears-I'm excited to see the Jimmy G. era begin. Yeah, he played last week, but that was mop up duty. If he wants the franchise tag, these are the kind of games he's going to have to win. I don't usually pick my Niners for good reason, but this game is winnable since Da Bears tend to beat themselves. Besides the 1-10ers already blew their chance at first pick by winning a game. They might as well win another.

Browns @ Chargers -The Browns last and only win was against these Chargers last season, but history won't repeat itself here. It would behoove the Browns not to win so they can get the first pick. I can see them getting a win in Week 16 or 17, but it's too soon right now and the homeless Carson Chargers are playing pretty well.

Giants @ Raiders-Even with the great Geno Smith taking over at QB, I'm still gonna take the Raiders at home. Hopefully a teammate doesn't knock Geno out in practice. It wouldn't surprise me considering the dumpster fire the Giants have become.

Panthers @ Saints -I don't know. I'll just take N'awlins at home because I like Drew Brees.

Rams @ Cardinals-Rams are having a great season and the Cards are terrible. I'll take Goff over Gabbert every time.

Eagles @ Seahawks -Like the Vikes, the Eagles are due for a loss and can afford to lose one. This is the point in the season when Seattle wins games like this in prime time at home.

Steelers @ Bengals-Steelers keep rolling in this intense rivalry game. Because Steelers tend to play to their level of competition, this will be close. They know how to close out wins. This game should put a dagger in the Bengals playoff hopes and Marvin Lewis's long tenure in Cincy.

Well Jonas is the only other poster to pick against Green Bay so that makes only two people, including myself to pick against Green Bay.

He is very witty, dry, makes one stop and think sometimes with his comments! By the way I am sorry I've been cranky with my comments!
