11-2 Last Week. Still…I CAN DO BETTER!

I know. I know. Didn’t give you my picks last week. Just know that I went 11-2 with the picks I made in a LA Downtown News “league” I’m in. Just a crazy, busy year for me. No excuse. I’ll be here the remainder of the season.

Remember, use my picks to wager $$$ at your own risk. I pick heads-up winners, not the spread. If you lose, I had nothing to do with it. If you win beaucoup $$$, a 10% tip would be cool.  But, I’m realistic. This is just for your entertainment…or not, and for me to keep my sports “mojo” going until “I’m back in the saddle”. Remember the league’s unofficial motto…“ON ANY GIVEN SUNDAY, MONDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY OR SATURDAY……….

LAST WEEK:  11-2  SEASON TOTAL: 64-39

SUNDAY

NY JETS of NEW JERSEY (4-3) +3 @ BUFFALO BILLS (5-2)  O/U 45 pts

-Jets winless on the road. Bills undefeated at home. Streaks got to come to an end at some point. JETS (Jets, 27-11)

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (2-5) +12 @ DALLAS COWBOYS (3-4) O/U 45 pts

-Pete Carroll’s Seahawks in the “Matt Barkley QB Derby.” Cowboys still in the playoff hunt with a win. COWBOYS (Cowboys, 23-13)

ATLANTA FALCONS (4-3) -7 @ INDIANAPOLIS COLTS (0-8) O/U 45.5 pts

-Falcons beginning to play like the NFC South Defending Champs. Colts with solid defense. But that offense is a snake with no head. FALCONS (Falcons, 31-7)

MIAMI DOLPHINS (0-7) +4 @ KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (4-3) O/U 40.5 pts

-Dolphins neck-and-neck with Colts in “Andrew Luck QB Derby.” Head coach Tony Sporano gets axed after this one. CHIEFS (Dolphins, 31-3)

TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS (4-3) +9 @ NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (5-3) O/U 50.5 pts

-Saints probably pretty angry they lost to the then-winless Rams last week. Bucs back from a week of eating “bangers and mash” across the pond. SAINTS (Saints, 27-16)

SAN FRANCISCO 49ers (6-1) -5 @ WASHINGTON REDSKINS (3-4) O/U 37.5 pts

-Ex-Top Overall Pick QB Alex Smith just needed an old QB to teach him how to play. A solid running game helps too. Redskins have QB issues. 49ers (49ers, 19-11)

CLEVELAND BROWNS (3-4) +11 @ HOUSTON TEXANS (5-3) O/U 41 pts

-Browns QB Colt McCoy back in Texas. Texans WR Andre Johnson could be back in line-up. TEXANS (Texans, 30-12)

CINCINNATI BENGALS (5-2) +3 @ TENNESSEE TITANS (4-3) O/U 41.5 pts

-Cincinnati rookie QB Andy Dalton to rookie WR A.J. Green a formidable duo. Add Cedric Benson and one $$ defense and the Bengals are for real. Holdout RB Chris Johnson having holdout issues. His new $$ pockets are weighing him down. BENGALS (Bengals, 24-17)

DENVER BRONCOS (2-5) +7 @ OAKLAND RAIDERS (4-3) O/U 42.5 pts

-Here’s how you use Tim Tebow at this moment. Just like Urban Meyer used him at Florida during his freshman year.  Start Kyke Orton or Brady Quinn at QB. Bring Tebow in in goal line situations and/or in the Wild Cat or as an H-Back. Fans are happy and you give yourself a better chance at winning with a better QB starting. Carson Palmer had the bye week to get over his “pre-season” debut two weeks ago in the loss to KC and he has ex-Bengals teammate WR T.J. “Who’s-Your-Mama” to throw to. RAIDERS (Broncos, 38-24)

NY GIANTS of NEW JERSEY (5-2) +9 @ NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (5-2) O/U 51 pts

-Super Bowl 42 rematch. Giants ended Pats undefeated bid with 17-14 win over the then 18-0 Pats. Patriots lost at Pittsburgh last week. surely, they won’t lose a second-straight, especially at the Razor where they never lose. PATRIOTS (Giants, 24-20)

ST. LOUIS RAMS of LOS ANGELES? (1-6) +2 @ ARIZONA CARDINALS (1-6) O/U 41 pts

-Battle of back-up QBs. Rams’ A.J. Feeley better than Cardinals’ John “Red” Skelton. Plus, Rams have RB Steven Jackson back and their defense is better. RAMS (Cardinals, 19-13 ot)

GREEN BAY PACKERS (7-0) -6 @ SAN DIEGO CHARGERS of LOS ANGELES? (4-3) O/U 51 pts

-My upset special. Chargers having issues because all of QB Phillip Rivers’ “toys” have been nicked up all season. Can’t be consistent. I think they put it all together at home against the Super Bowl Champions. QB Aaron Rodgers and the Pack are better than last year. I just don’t think they’ll go undefeated. CHARGERS (Packers, 45-38)

BALTIMORE RAVENS (5-2) +4 @ PITTSBURGH STEELERS (6-2) O/U 42 pts

-Ravens destroyed Steelers in season-opener. Steelers playing much better and Ravens QB Joe Flacco’s been having “pressure-issues” fromt he likes of the Jaguars and Cardinals. Imagine what the Steelers will do to him. STEELERS (Ravens, 23-20)

MONDAY

CHICAGO BEARS (4-3) +7.5 @ PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (3-4) O/U 47 pts

-Bears back from a week of “bangers and mash” across the pond. eagles are playing like the team everyone thought they would be when they acquired all of those free-agents. EAGLES (30-24, Bears)

BYE WEEK:  CAROLINA PANTHERS, DETROIT LIONS, JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS, LOS ANGELES*, MINNESOTA VIKINGS (of Los Angeles?)

*LOS ANGELES (16 seasons, 9 weeks)
