4caster Frank's Weekly Picks
Last Week: 8-6 .571
Season Total: 52-50.510
Browns 20 Jets 16
Even in beating the Vikings last week the Jets looked real bad, and I don't mean those awful all green uniforms. Look for the Browns to win for Owner Al Learner who died Wednesday.
Chiefs 38 Raiders 34
The Chiefs need to win this one to have any hope of making the playoffs, as they beat the Raiders in a high scoring game.
Bears 24 Vikings 20
The reeling Bears have lost 4 straight and need to stop the bleeding, now facing a pathetic Viking team is just the remedy.
Falcons 27 Saints 24
Upset of the Week: With cousins at Quarterback this under rated rivalry will be getting more attention over the next few years. One peculiar thing about this game is the road team always wins, and this Sunday look for the Falcons to get the upset.
Ravens 16 Steelers 13
With the Steelers missing the bus look for the Ravens to get revenge for the Steelers winning all 3 games including the playoffs against them.
Bills 31 Lions 28
The Bills appear to be taking shape a s a rue playoff contender,. However, despite last weeks performance their defense is still not good, and the Lions will keep this one close.
Titans 30 Bengals 10
Upset of the Week: What will happen first the Bengals will win a game or Pete Rose will be reinstated by MLB? Right now the wise bet is on Rose.
Jaguars 20 Texans 13
The Texans have looked awful since winning in Week 1. However, the last 2 weeks the Jags offense has really stalled. Look for the Jags to win, but take the points.
Buccaneers 13 Panthers 0
With the Bucs starting backup QB Rob Johnson and the Panther starting their 3rd string QB whose name will be revealed at a later date, this has all the makings of a classic shutout.
49ers 20 Cardinals 16
Game of the Week: The Cardinals defense is looking good as they find themselves in a Fist Place showdown with 49ers. (Note: That is not a typo.) Look for the Cards to keep it close all the way.
Broncos 34 Patriots 20
The Patriots have tendency to get blown out by the Broncos. Not even an off week will help them here as the Pats return to reality begins to hit second gear.
Cowboys 24 Seahawks 10
The final score in the end will not matter hear as the Cowboys with Chad Hutchinson at QB beat the sorry Seahawks. However, the drama will come as Emmitt Smith passes Walter Payton with 93 yards rushing. Look for history to come in the 4th quarter.
Colts 31 Redskins 13
Look for the Colts to easily cruise past the Redskins using the QB carousel of Shane Matthews, Danny Weurfel and Patrick Ramsey.
Eagles 20 Giants 14
No matter what the records are Giants-Eagles games are always close. Look for Monday Night to be no different, as the Eagles hold off the Giants late rally.
