NFL Pick 'Em Week 4: Minshew Mania Edition: Week 4 of the NFL season begins Thursday night with an uncharacteristically nice matchup: Packers vs. Eagles. There's a new leader in SportsFilter's NFL Pick 'Em, as Tron7 scores 95 to take a five-point lead over former pacesetter Grum@work. Cixelsyd leaps into third only 9 back. That 95 is enough for Tron7 and Wfrazerjr to tie with the week's best score.

I don't care that Philly's an underdog. Green Bay is ready for a letdown with Aaron Rodgers continuing to be less formidable than his mustache would suggest.

Washington vs. N.Y Football Giants is a game that both teams should lose. Lacking that option I'm going with a Washington upset because Saquan is in street clothes. Daniel Jones was good in his first start but there will be setbacks for him. Not every team can roll out a peerless rookie like Gardner Minshew Deuce.

I'm picking Jacksonville at Mile High because I can't bear the alternative.

The game that's most dividing America is Minnesota at Chicago, with a 48% Vikings, 52% Bears split on Yahoo.

The one I most want to see is Buffalo smacking New England in the snoot, even though to oppose the Hoodie is to see all joy turn to ashes in your mouth.

P.s. These predictions are brought to you by a growler of Scurvy IPA from Green Room Brewing in Jacksonville Beach.

Ha! I've corrected the schedule to reflect that the Rams are playing the Bucs. Any Chargers/Bucs pick will be treated as a Rams/Buc pick unless you post a revision.

Why does L.A. deserve two good teams? In Florida we rarely get one.

No Barkley and a rookie quarterback, but that won't matter. New York (National Conference) by 6
