Stop Losing Start Winning!


Teams on bye: Minnesota, New York (Giants), Seattle, Tennessee

Miami at Buffalo – Thur. 8:20 pm ET
This 6th ranked rushing attack will host the 5th ranked rushing defense, but without Fred Jackson. I still look for Spiller, if he can’t find running room, to catch several dump off passes for decent gains. Tannehill should rebound in this game in part because the Dolphins should have better success running the ball. Of course that is what we all thought when they faced the Titans last week. At any rate I think Miami will pick up a road win in a very close game. Start: Tannehill, Fitzpatrick, Spiller, Johnson

Cincinnati at Kansas City – Sun. 1:00 pm ET
The lowly Chiefs could be the frontrunner for the #1 overall draft pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. The Bengals will only help their cause. After an impressive win over the Giants, I expect Cincinnati to keep rolling. Dalton to AJ Green. Look for more of that. The Chiefs, regardless of who the QB is, will lose this game. Start: Dalton, AJ Green, Gresham, Charles

Philadelphia at Washington – Sun. 1:00 pm ET
With Vick out, the rookie QB in, Maclin banged up, the Philly O-line the way they’ve been (not to mention the Eagles’ defensive woes), and Washington at home coming off a bye equals a Redskin victory. Start: McCoy, Jackson, Celek, RGIII, Morris

Jacksonville at Houston – Sun. 1:00 pm ET
After Houston survived a major test of their mettle at Soldier Field on Monday Night, they have to feel great heading home to face the Jags. Foster, who ran for just over a hundred yards in Chicago, should be able to run at will. On the flip side the Jacksonville offense, what’s left of it, will be shut down. They will have to pass, and should get picked early and often. Start: Foster, Johnson, Daniels (check status)

New York (Jets) at St. Louis – Sun. 1:00 pm ET
Will this be the Tebow game? Who cares? The Rams will win this game either way. St. Louis is heading in the right direction as a franchise. They played extremely well for much of their game against the Niners last weekend (and should have won), and I expect them to build on that. With Amendola back, Bradford should be able to move the ball. Rams do not lose or tie, but rather WIN. Start: Bradford, Amendola, Jackson

Cleveland at Dallas – Sun. 1:00 pm ET
I am not buying the Cowboys mid-season turnaround based on their win in Philadelphia. They might improve on some aspects of their game but they will not make the playoffs this season. They should however find a way to beat the Browns, but Cleveland will not be a pushover. I would expect the game to be somewhat close most of the way. Start: Romo, Witten, Austin, Bryant, Richardson

Tampa Bay at Carolina – Sun. 1:00 pm ET
I am very impressed with the Buccaneers as of late. Freeman is able to do what we thought he could, he just needed some play-makers to bring out the best in him. Martin should get over a hundred rushing yards in this contest, and Cam will struggle to move the ball, even with his legs. Coach Schiano has these boys playing very sound fundamental football. Bucs win big. Start: Freeman, Martin, Jackson, Cam, Olsen

Green Bay at Detroit – Sun. 1:00 pm ET
This is the fantasy goldmine of the week, perhaps. I love the Packers coming off the bye into a division rival’s dome. Rodgers should tear it up, but so should Stafford. I expect a shootout, but the Lions won’t be able to keep up in the end. Start: Rodgers, Nelson (check status), Cobb, Jones, Stafford, Megatron, Pettigrew

Arizona at Atlanta – Sun. 1:00 pm ET
Atlanta will be chomping at the bit for game time to arrive. Look for the Falcons to get up to a quick 10 or 14 point lead and then control the game the rest of the way. If Atlanta struggles on offense it will mainly be in the running game, though the Arizona corners might keep White and Jones somewhat in check. If they do Gonzales will keep moving the chains. Start: Fitzgerald, Ryan, White, Jones, Gonzalez

New Orleans at Oakland – Sun. 4:05 pm ET
The Saints are trying hard to salvage their season, but realistically will only be able to play spoiler from week to week along the way. I do see them winning this game in Oakland, especially since the Raiders are so one-dimensional on offense. Start: Brees, Colston, Graham, Palmer, Moore, Myers (check status)

Indianapolis at New England – Sun. 4:25 pm ET
Luck continues to progress in his knowledge of the game. He’ll get a very good test of that knowledge in Foxborough this weekend. I look for a very close game, but the Patriots should find a way to win. Just too many weapons for the Colts defense to handle, as good as they have been playing. Start: Luck, Wayne, Allen, Brady, Ridley, Welker, Gronk

San Diego at Denver – Sun. 4:25 pm ET
After a slow start, the Denver defense has crept into the top 5 for the season. You thought I was going to talk about Broncos’ offense. Nothing needs to be said there. Denver is increasingly disruptive to opposing offenses and they should rattle Rivers’ cage on Sunday afternoon. Look for the Broncos to pull away by the middle of the 4th quarter. Start: Rivers, Gates, Manning, McGahee, Thomas, Decker

Baltimore at Pittsburgh – Sun. 8:20 pm ET
These two teams are not anywhere near at full strength. Perhaps the injuries to both teams coming into this game will even out. The upper hand should go to Baltimore mainly due to the QB situation, although Leftwich has been pretty effective in the past when he’s had to step in for Big Ben. Despite the advantage being in Flacco and the Ravens’ favor, I am going with the Steelers’ defense in this one to make enough plays to win the game, but it won’t be pretty. Start: Flacco, Rice, Smith, (not sure which RB), Wallace, Miller

Chicago at San Francisco – Mon. 8:30 pm ET
This should be a good old-fashion slobber-knocker. Both teams play a very gritty brand of defense, but the Bears are a little grittier. Both teams could be starting back up QB’s due to the concussions to Alex Smith and Jay Cutler last week. Either way, I would have to go with the home team in this one. I think the Niners will win in a very close struggle for two teams trying to race for the #2 seed, hoping to get a first round bye. They need to qualify for the playoffs first, but that’s what these teams will be eying. Start: Forte, Marshall, Gore (check status), Davis
