I meant to have a pick contest going on the site but just haven't gotten around to it. That changes today. I am going to give you my picks for each of the NFL games this weekend. I would love for some of you to give me your picks in the comments.
Green Bay (3-0) @ Minnesota (2-1)
This is an interesting match-up. Brett Favre typically doesn't play well in domes except for the MetroDome. Minnesota's defense is great against the run but not so great against the pass.
Pick: Packers 24 Vikings 10
Baltimore (2-1) @ Cleveland (1-2)
The old Browns vs. the new Browns. The new Browns are not good.
Pick: Ravens 28 Browns 7
Chicago (1-2) @ Detroit (2-1)
The Brian Griese era begins this weekend. This is actually a tough game to call because it is strength vs. strength. Jon Kitna said the Lions are going to win 10 games. Works for me.
Pick: Lions 27 Bears 24
St. Louis (0-3) @ Dallas (3-0)
The Rams will be without Steven Jackson for at least 2 weeks. They haven't won with him. I can't see them winning this game without him.
Pick: Cowboys 28 Rams 20
Oakland (1-2) @ Miami (0-3)
Daunte Culpepper makes his return to the city where he had so many successful season. Wait, no that's not it. I hope this game isn't one that is on my TV on Sunday.
Pick: Raiders 6 Dolphins 3
New York Jets (1-2) @ Buffalo (0-3)
I really thought the Bills would make some noise this year. I guess I was wrong.
Pick: Jets 24 Bills 13
Houston (2-1) @ Atlanta (0-3)
Matt Schaub will get more cheers in this game than anyone on the Falcons. Bobby Petrino will continue to wish he was back at Louisville.
Pick: Texans 24 Falcons 13
Seattle (2-1) @ San Francisco (2-1)
This is the 49ers first chance to prove they are for real against the reigning NFC West Champs. I think they will.
49ers 35 Seahawks 27
Tampa Bay (2-1) @ Carolina (2-1)
It looks like my 2nd favorite team has some new life breathed into them by Jeff Garcia.
Pick: Bucs 28 Panthers 17
Denver (2-1) @ Indianapolis (3-0)
I will be cheering as hard as I can for Jay Cutler and the Broncos in this game. Unfortunately, I don't think they have enough offense to pull it out.
Pick: Colts 38 Broncos 28
Kansas City (1-2) @ San Diego (1-2)
I am very mad at LaDanian Tomlinson currently. He has underperformed fantasy wise so far. That all changes on Sunday.
Pick: Chargers 24 Chiefs 17
Pittsburgh (3-0) @ Arizona (2-1)
Raise your hand if you are glad the Titans drafted Vince Young instead of Matt Leinart. If your hand isn't up right now please click the X in the upper right hand corner of your screen right now.
Pick: Steelers 42 Cardinals 13
Philadelphia (1-2) @ New York Giants (1-2)
My wife has Donovan McNabb and Brian Westbrook on her fantasy team so I have to cheer for them. She makes me.
Pick: Eagles 35 Giants 28
New England (3-0) @ Cincinnati (1-2)
In case you don't know, I hate the Patriots. Here is all you need to know about this game, Derek Anderson threw 5 TDs against the Bengals. Tom Brady is a little bit better than Derek Anderson.
Pick: Patriots 38 Bengals 17
