ATL at NO: I'll learn my lesson from the Denver game yesterday and never again pick against tendencies in a game where only one team cares about the result. Even if that team is the Saints. NO
BAL at PIT: I'm not sure which is scarier, Big Ben vs. the Ravens' D or Kyle Boller vs. the Steelers' D. Things could get ugly. PIT
CHI at DET: I carelessly picked Detroit in a upset last week, and ignorance of my own iron law may very well end up costing me the picks crown this year. DET
HOU at JAX: Do you remember that some people considered the Texans playoff contenders at the midpoint of the season? We'll I guess lots of people look stupid in 20-20 hindsight. JAX
NYG at CIN: To think, keeping Kurt Warner at QB may have been enough to get the Giants into the playoffs this year ... no wonder Tom Coughlin is always angry ... CIN
SD at IND: The Chargers may be my AFC darlings, but no one can escape the buzzsaw that is the Colts right now. IND.
BUF at SF: I don't care what anyone else says, any team that starts out 1-5 is officially eliminated from the playoffs. BUF.
NE at NYJ: True Fact: Curtis Martin, not an asteroid, killed the Dinosaurs. NYJ.
AZ at SEA: Technically, the Cardinals are still in playoff contention. Realistically, Seattle is pathetic, but probably not pathetic enough to lose to the Cardinals at home. SEA
CAR at TB: If the Panthers can't manage to beat the Bucs, especially in the PG (Post-Grammatica) era, they obviously don't deserve to be in the playoffs. CAR
WAS at DAL: Folks, this is what happens when you let people who should be in assisted-living communities run professional football teams. DAL
CLE at MIA: Wow, a landslide decision for "Game I Don't Care About Of the Week" here. Is it just me or has Cleveland pretty much monopolized this title? MIA.
PHI at STL: Silly, silly Chris - letting your hatred of the Rams get in the way of what should be an even greater hatred of the Eagles. STL.
