CAR at ATL: The team that I keep saying will make noise in the playoffs, Carolina, is doing a very poor job of getting there in the first place. CAR
BAL at CLE: Now taking all bets on the number of weeks it will be until Kyle Boller resumes being Kyle Boller. Over/under is one and a half. CLE
SEA at GB: Til' next year... GB
AZ at IND: Fear the wrath of Jim Sorgi. IND
CIN at KC: Bold Prediction: Chad Johnson's next end zone dance will be a pantomime of Dick Vermeil crying. CIN
MIA at NE: I get this feeling that the Patriots are taken way too much for granted in New England. People would rather talk about the Sox getting acceptable return on a Matt Clement trade than about that little NFL dynasty thing they've got going. NE
BUF at NYJ: Vinny Testaverde will likely be the best quarterback in the stadium for this one - not a good sign. Little known fact: Vinny is actually 4 months older than Joe Namath. NYJ
DET at PIT: As I mentioned last week, Pittsburgh somehow convinced the NFL to schedule them as if they were in the NFC North. PIT
NO at TB: Upset special, just because Gruden gets on my nerves. Nobody likes people who are always angry. It's a game, man. NO.
HOU at SF: It's quite amazing, every week Houston either plays a) Indy or b) Someone truly awful. And I know they haven't played Indy more than, like, 5 times this year, so how do you explain the other 10 losses? HOU.
TEN at JAX: Can there really be a quarterback controversy if no one cares? Reminds me of that tree falling in the forest. JAX
CHI at MIN: I'm not sure which meathead I want to see return more, Mike Tice or Matt Millen. As long as those two guys are calling the shots, and the Bears are still the Bears (trust me, they look exactly like they did in that one fluke 12-4 season about five years ago), the Packers will be fine. MIN
WAS at PHI: If you think Philly will contend again next year, think again. That sound you heard was your window closing. WAS
STL at DAL: Game I Don't Care About of the Week, in what turned out to be the Season I Didn't Care About of the Year. DAL
