    Arizona Cardinals(2-8) Vs. Minnesota Vikings(4-6)

    Both of these teams are better then their records show. They both played the NFC's top team, the Bears, very well. Arizona has a better passing game but Minnesota has a much better running game. This game will be decided by Arizona's offensive line. If they can have one of those rare miraculous games where they give the quarterback time to throw and the runningback a little running room, Arizona will win. This is why I'm picking Minnesota.

    My Pick: Vikings


    Carolina Panthers(6-4) Vs. Washington Redskins(3-7)

    If the Panthers lose this game, words won't be able to describe how disappointed I'll be in them. The Panthers are the most inconsistent team in the NFC right now.(lose two, win four, lose two, win two) They have no identity at this point and if they fall to 6-5, they might have to close out the season at 4-1 just to make the playoffs. Jason Campbell had a pretty good game his first time out against Tampa Bay... but this time he's gonna have Julius Peppers in his face in almost every play. 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions will be a good game for him this time around.

    My Pick: Panthers


    Cincinnati Bengals(5-5) Vs. Cleveland Browns(3-7)

    Carson Palmer, Rudi Johnson, Chad Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh versus Charlie Frye, Reuben Droughns, Braylon Edwards and Kellen Winslow?!?!?!

    lol

    My Pick: Bengals


    Houston Texans(3-7) Vs. New York Jets(5-5)

    At this point, I need to take a crap and I can't write up an explanation for each pick... so I'm just putting up the picks now. :p

    My Pick: Jets


    Jacksonville Jaguars(6-4) Vs. Buffalo Bills(4-6)

    My Pick: Jags


    New Orleans Saints(6-4) Vs. Atlanta Falcons(5-5)

    My Pick: Falcons


    Pittsburgh Steelers(4-6) Vs. Baltimore Ravens(8-2)

    My Pick: Ravens


    San Francisco 49ers(5-5) Vs. St. Louis Rams(4-6)

    My Pick: Rams


    San Diego Chargers(8-2) Vs. Oakland Raiders(2-8)

    My Pick: Chargers


    Chicago Bears(9-1) Vs. New England Patriots(7-3)

    My Pick: Bears


    New York Giants(6-4) Vs. Tennessee Titans(3-7)

    My Pick: Giants


    Philadelphia Eagles(5-5) Vs. Indianapolis Colts(9-1)

    My Pick: Colts


    Green Bay Packers(4-6) Vs. Seattle Seahawks(6-4)

    My Pick: Seahawks

    Yea...That looked gruesome...

    Who do you think is going to end up winning?

    I'm leaning towards the Pats still...they are ahead right now, and it's pretty much a deadlock.

    Big win for Coach Belichick and the Pats.

    The AFC is so superior to its counterpart it's not funny.

    Anyone care to speculate on the size of Vick's fine?

    I say 5K.

    Yeah, that's what Plummer got for doing the same thing, I don't see how they could justify making it any different.

    I'd say 5 grand is about right, actually. Vick hasn't had any prior on-field problems, if I recall correctly, so I don't see any reason to hit him hard over this.

    Being on a team full of worthless losers, many of whom cannot catch the ball, I can understand his frustration.

    You can jump in next week, for the competition....Not really sure what we're competing for, though...

    Anywho, I'll have final scores up tonight after the Packers beat the Seahawks.

    Kudos to AJ and Heels! You guys get like 50 cool points. Or something. I'll see if I can work anything out with the mods to make this thing official, and if not, it will still be fun to keep track.

    MASTERPRENN- 5-5

    heels1785- 7-3

    Armenian_Jedi- 7-3


    How about those Packers? :mad:

    I thought ten games seemed like too few so I went back and recounted and there were 13 games, and this is how we all actually did:


    MASTERPRENN - 6-7

    heels1785 - 10-3

    Armenian_Jedi - 8-5

    Yea...I suck at life. Or it's late, and I'm tired...Anyhow, good job Heels! And thanks for correcting me.

    So, how soon do I need to get the next weeks matchups up? Is it okay for you guys if I get them up by Thursday or Friday? I want to leave room for discussion.

    well, there's a game on thursday... so getting it in a day or two before that would be good. that way people will have more time to get their picks in... and we'll have more than 3 people with picks. :p

    Man, wish I would have gotten in this last week. I picked last Wednesday with my brother on his Pig Skin Pick'Em, and I think I only got 2 wrong (St. Louis and New Orleans, I believe).

    Well now let me think about next week.
