And for this weekend...

New England over Jacksonville. For a while in the first half of the Jacksonville/Pittsburgh game, Jacksonville looked good enough for an upset. But not logn enough. NE by about 10.

Indy over San Diego. The Chargers are just flat-out not consistent enough...not even over 60 minutes against Tennessee. We're talking 31-14 here.

Green Bay over Seattle. The Seahawks made Washington look way too good. Seattle hasn't done well on the road or against playoff teams. This one could be ugly. Pack by three TDs.

Giants over Dallas. New York has looked very, very strong for two weeks. That will continue in a fairly big upset...21-16.

Let's see if we can keep this juggernaut going...

I like these picks...

For awhile I had thought Pittsburgh was the best Pats slayer in the bunch...Jax COULD do it, but I think they are lacking the big-play offense to compete under any but the most perfect circumstances.

Giants over Cowboys is a gutsy pick. Living here in Giant land I would normally say thy can't put together 3 good weeks in a row especially without Shockey. However the WRs are playing with real guts and the Cowboys have come back to earth and are starting to resemble the early Colts to me - that is a team which peaks at about game 13 of the regular season. The Giants also have Defense and surprisingly good coaching.

Bring on the weekend!!

You and Bill Simmons loving on the Giants? Hmm... gotta be Mr. Contrarian, then. Pats, Colts, Hawks (I know, this is not a rational choice; I just hate to pick against my team, and would love to see perhaps the greatest upset in Seattle history) and 'Boys.
