NFL Picks - Week 9

Atlanta Falcons @ Indianapolis Colts (Sunday 1pm)
Before the season, this one looked like an offensive shootout. Now, without Peyton Manning, not so much.
Winner: Falcons

New York Jets @ Buffalo Bills (Sunday 1pm)

Have the 5-2 Bills surpassed the 4-3 Jets? This one will go along way in deciding that for a Buffalo team that's already defeated New England in upstate NY.  Jets have won 5 of 6 in the series.
Winner: Bills

Cleveland Browns @ Houston Texans (Sunday 1pm)

The Texans should get WR Andre Johnson (hamstring) back for this one against a Browns team that's on the backend of back-to-back road games.
Winner: Texans

San Francisco 49ers @ Washington Redskins (Sunday 1pm)

You would think the a trip East would be devastating for the 49ers, but against the Redskins, they should be able to run all day long.
Winner: 49ers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ New Orleans Saints (Sunday 1pm)

Revenge time for the Saints, who lost in Tampa a few weeks ago in a game that saw head coach Sean Payton tear his ACL and break his leg.  New Orleans should be surly after an embarrassing loss in St.Louis last Sunday.
Winner: Saints

Miami Dolphins @ Kansas City Chiefs (Sunday 1pm)

A month ago, Chiefs fans were calling for Todd Haley's head. Now, they're winners of four straight and tied for the lead in the AFC West.
Winner: Chiefs

Seattle Seahawks @ Dallas Cowboys (Sunday 1pm)

Just what the doctor ordered for the Cowboys, who were thoroughly routed by the Eagles Sunday night.
Winner: Cowboys

Cincinnati Bengals @ Tennessee Titans (Sunday 4pm)

Will RB Chris Johnson ever get back on track? Don't count it this week against the AFC's best defense against the run in Cincy, who are going for five wins in a row.
Winner: Bengals

Denver Broncos @ Oakland Raiders (Sunday 4pm)

Now that he's had a few practices under his belt, QB Carson Palmer should have fun with this Broncos defense that just surrendered 45 points to Detroit last Sunday.
Winner: Raiders

New York Giants @ New England Patriots (Sunday 4:15pm)

A rematch of Super Bowl XLII back in 2008 where the Giants shredded the Patriots undefeated season. This time, they just may shred the Pats defense, ranked dead last in passing and total defense. But, then again, New England doesn't lose two in a row very often.
Winner: Patriots

St. Louis Rams @ Arizona Cardinals (Sunday 4:15pm)

Two in a row for the Rams? Is it possible? Sure, but not likely, Cardinals have won 8 of 9 in this series.
Winner: Cardinals

Green Bay Packers @ San Diego Chargers (Sunday 4:15pm)

If QB Phillips Rivers can hang on to the ball, this would could be the week's most entertaining game. Otherwise, the undefeated Packers will improve to 9-1 all-time against San Diego.
Winner: Packers

Baltimore Ravens @ Pittsburgh Steelers (Sunday 8:20pm)

The NFL's best rivalry hits prime-time as the Steelers try to avoid another 7 turnover performance that started this season for them in Baltimore.
Winner: Steelers

Chicago Bears at
Philadelphia Eagles (Monday 8:30pm)
Did the Dream Team finally hit their stride last Sunday night against the Cowboys? Watch LeSean McCoy run his TD streak to eight straight games this season, a feat matched by no one else in the NFL.
Winner: Eagles

Last week: 10-3
Season: 79-37
