A very unoriginal pick, but I'll be busy capitalizing on the three day weekend and probably won't see any games apart from highlights on Sunday night/Monday morning.

Let's get on with the fun. Coach Bill the Hoodie forgot to read my picks, so I missed the spread on Thursday's game, but at least the Patriots got the easy win. Let's see what we can do with the rest of the table.

Broncos trot into the big city (well, across the bridge from the city anyway) The turbine-powered aircraft will try to strafe them. New York (American Conference) by 6

Fish found themselves out of water last week. In the land of the tigers they won't swim any better. Cincinnati by 10

Have the iron workers learned their craft? Birds don't think so. Atlanta by 8

Oversized people don't know how to handle big kitties. Carolina by 13

More cats, these against the Native American leadership. Kansas City by 9

Why do so many teams have feline names? Wouldn't the Detroit Dachshunds be appropriate? Green Bay by 17

There are too many avian names as well. Why not reptiles? I rather like the idea of the Baltimore Iguanas. Cleveland by 3

Bills may be returning to their regular form. Tennessee by 12

Old school West Coast AFL battle. This one used to really mean something. Los Angeles (American Conference) by 17

Ah! A team named after Dodge pickup trucks against another dreary bird. Seattle by 6

Norsemen against another bird. More banality Philadelphia by 10

Battle in the Lonestar State. Surely there is more than one star among the many players on the teams. Houston by 14 LOCK

Native Americans will tangle with those who are sanctified. The Heavens breathlessly await the outcome. New Orleans by 17 LOCK
