Cleveland being favored to beat Seattle is insane. I like Miami to win the Tua Bowl by losing to Washington at home. Otherwise I expect no surprises.

I get an uneasy feeling when the Patriots are heavily favored over the Giants and people rush headlong into agreement about the outcome.

Also, I think the prize should be changed from an official NFL football to a DJ Chark jersey.

Effectively taking week 4 off, and a low scoring week 5, have left me looking up at the majority of my fellow prognosticators. Desperate times call for desperate measures, or so I am told. Here goes nothing...

A couple of so-so weeks have left me down toward the middle of the pack with a score equal to Donald Duck's license plate number (313). Check out a Donald Duck comic book to see. Also, 313 is a constant used in magnetism (it's the approximate magnetic permeability of iron), so I remember it well from my days of studying Electrical Engineering. Enough science, let's try to work some magic with the picks.

Giants fans have a Jones for their quarterback. Patriots will have a Jones for a late evening meal. New England by 12 LOCK

I've been wrong every time I've picked either one of these teams. Carolina by 4

Cheer up, Bengals, only 11 more games left in the season. Baltimore by 14 LOCK

Fly, Eagles, fly, but avoiding Vikings would be advised. Minnesota by 6

Could this be the first scoreless overtime tie? Fitting that tankini would be associated with a team whose name is Dolphins. Washington by 3

Mississippi River or St. John River makes no difference to the Saints. New Orleans by 10

49ers tore the fancy clothes off the Browns, and the Seahawks will pick over the naked corpse. Seattle by 13

Chiefs let their horses ride them last week. They will be wary this week. Kansas City by 9

Their defense made me a believer. San Francisco by 12

Are the Cardinals for real? Atlanta by 10

This one could be brutal. Dallas by 16 LOCK

Broncos keep getting close, and actually broke through last week. Denver by 7

All is not well with either of these teams. Los Angeles (American Conference) by13

Packers had a big win last week while Lions slept in. Green Bay by 13

First off, like the idea of a DJ Chark jersey. Second, and I'm probably jinxing myself here, but I'm in first in both the CFL and NFL pick 'em leagues this week (I'll be lucky to finish in the top 5 of either now that I've pointed it out/lol.)
