Saints are 10-2 against ATL in the Payton era. That stat would probably mean something if...

Thing about this match-up, and nearly all NFC South match-ups, is that the games are more often than not heart-stoppers even when the teams have lopsided records. And when it's Saints/Falcons, the emotions run particularly high.

This is one of my favorite days of the year.

Oh, and as always -

Sanchez and Rivers have good shots at the Jake as well.

84-47. If I'd gotten my pick in on time for the season-opener, I'd be a ferpectly lysdexic 84-48. Still, it's hard to argue with succeeding nearly two thirds of the time; in baseball, I'd be far and away the best hitter ever. As a race car driver, I'd be banned for cheating. A 67% success rate is approximately 66.999999% better than I've ever done with the ladies, and the only reason it's that close is because of that time in Tijuana that I can't really remember (but my friends tell me I have great stories to tell from that weekend).

Still, and with all due respect to Meatloaf, two out of three is bad in other arenas. A surgeon who was successful two out of three times wouldn't be your first choice, a car that started two out of three times would quickly be scrapped, and a computer that only worked two out of three times would be a Dell (Dude!). Indeed, there is room for improvement, and this week I can feel it, the perfect pick sheet...I am filled with an amount of confidence which can only come from not having looked at the games yet (that will read funny being that I post this snippet on Sunday morning, but I'm writing it Wednesday night; I just fine-tune all this stuff up until game time). The winners, like always, are in bold:


Oakland Raiders at Baltimore Ravens:
December 5th, 2010. That's the last time the Ravens lost a game at home, and that one coming against the eventual AFC Champion Pittsburgh Steelers (by 3 points). To put things lightly, the 2012 Oakland Raiders are not nearly as good as the 2010 Steelers. In fact, only the good grace of having played both Jacksonville and Kansas City already has prevented Oakland from coming in at 1-7, and they needed a 10-point 4th quarter rally plus overtime to beat the Jags. If Baltimore wants to be taken seriously down the stretch, they need not only to win this game, but to win it convincingly. They will.

Denver Broncos at Carolina Panthers:
A random power station on the outskirts of Tokyo has a better chance against Godzilla than the Panthers do against Peyton Manning and the Broncos this week. Whatever broadcast team is stuck doing this game will play up how good Carolina looked in shutting down Robert Griffin last weekend, but...yeah, I've got nothing else. Broncos by 10+

New York Giants at Cincinnati Bengals:
I am sorely tempted to pick the Bengals here, on the basis that Eli Manning & Giants' aerial attack have looked horrible over the past couple weeks, and the Bengals can bring pressure on the passer. The problem is that Cincinnati can't do much else on defense: only 5 interceptions, a 99.0 passer rating against, and they haven't managed to crack the top half of the league in total defense against the pass or the run. New York gets back on track here.

Tennessee Titans at Miami Dolphins:
In four road games this season, the Titans have managed just one victory (a 1-point win in Buffalo) while being outscored by 75 points in the other three. They have yet to hold an opposing home team under 30 points, and before you say "but it's the Dolphins!", they've already played in Minnesota. If any of you pretend football-playing people have actually been carrying Ryan Tannehill on your roster, this would be the week to let him play: Tennessee has allowed 20 passing touchdowns already (tied for most in the league), they rank 32nd in passer rating against with a staggering number of 108.4, and...they've already played the Vikings.

Detroit Lions at Minnesota Vikings:
Is this even an upset pick (Sunday update: Vegas says "No")? Detroit has won three of their last four, with the lone defeat being a 6-point loss in Chicago, while the Vikings have lost three of four and looked terrible in all three losses. Christian Ponder has failed to throw for 70 yards in two of the last 3 games, while Matt Stafford has gone over 260 in 6 straight (throwing 6 TDs vs. 3 picks in that span). Fitting that the last win Minnesota picked up was against the Cardinals, who are free-falling just as quickly after their own heady start.

Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots:
Buffalo last beat the Pats in week 3 of the 2011 season, which for a Bills fan must seem about 3 decades ago. In their two games since, New England has won by a combined score of (get ready) 101-49. And as if things weren't one-sided enough, Belichick had an extra week to cheat get his team ready for this one.

Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints:
Until the Saints show any ability to stop an opposing offense, I don't see how anyone can expect them to beat a halfway decent team. 32nd against the run, 29th vs. the pass, and tied for 28th in points allowed is no way to geaux through a season, son.

San Diego Chargers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
Any hopes the Chargers have of winning this one rest on the shoulders of Philip Rivers. Think about that for a minute, Chargers fans: Philip Rivers. But seriously, the Bucs' offense is firing on all cylinders right now, and their only real weakness is their schizophrenic defense: first in the league against the run, dead last vs. the pass. That's all I need to make my pick.

New York Jets at Seattle Seahawks:
Far better teams than the Jets have lost* in Seattle this season, and Rex's boys aren't too good anyhow. This game might be the best opportunity New York has this season to get Timmysprinkles under center, as the Seahawks are a club that can certainly bring pressure against a quarterback and Tebow's mobility could keep things closer. But, we're talking about Rex Ryan here, so Sanchez will probably stay in until they have to scrape what's left of him off the field.

Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles:
Turns out there are only two games this week which look like even matches on paper, and for entirely different reasons: Houston at Chicago on Sunday night features two of the best teams in the league, while this one features two downright lousy ones who both go to extremes in finding ways to lose. Well, the old Vegas adage says that the home team gets an automatic 3-point cushion, so the Eagles win 2 to -1.

St. Louis Rams at San Francisco 49ers:
The Niners are still tops in the league in scoring defense, allowing a paltry 12.9 points/game, and rank 2nd vs. the pass. St. Louis has improved in leaps and bounds from their 2011 selves, but that still only has them up to a "mediocre" level as a team...and mediocre is not good enough to win in San Francisco.

Houston Texans at Chicago Bears:
The matchup sounds great in theory: two 7-1 clubs squaring off, first & second in the league in net point differential, the Bears undefeated at home and the Texans' record unblemished on the road. But then you start to think about how these two teams got to where they are: strong defenses which force turnovers and so-so offensive units which are best equipped to take advantage of those short fields while wearing down opponents. So what I'm trying to say is, this could very well be an incredibly boring game to watch, with a final somewhere along the lines of 14-10. Honestly, the numbers don't really lend themselves to picking a winner, so this is more a hunch pick than anything else.

Kansas City Chiefs at Pittsburgh Steelers:
The Carolina Panthers have a better shot at beating Denver than K.C. does of handing the Steelers a defeat. Pittsburgh is one of eight teams who come into week 10 without having scored a defensive touchdown; Monday Night will put an end to that. I can easily see this one ending in the 38-3 realm.

The Bears/Texans game will probably be very ugly. Weather is supposed to be awful -- the heavy rain front is probably going to roll through sometime between 5 and 9pm, with rain likely throughout the game, and Soldier Field's grass surface is terrible even when it's been perfect weather. If the rain hits around game time it's going to be a swamp. Decent possibility of a lightning delay as well.

And all the seats will be full even if it's pouring. I'll be one of the occupants in those seats.

2012-11-11 12:04:12 PM
@NE -13 Buffalo 53
NE outright. Rough Buff I was trying to believe in all season, but they're just bad.


NYG -3.5 At CIN 49
I'm gonna pick CIN, for no reason. Well mainly I guess because NYG is overrated. That said, CIN is on a dreadful 1-4 slide.....I'll say cover somehow.


@TB -3 San Dog 47.5
I wonder if Bolts' leadership feels in any way embiggened by what the Lakers did 100 miles up the road, meaning what does the next Bolts' loss mean for Norvell? the early slot for a West Coast team so I'll say TB outright. TB is "only" 4-4 but they are 3-2 in their last five and appear to be getting things right. But, that doesn't mean dick with ATL at 8-0. But TB wins outright today.


DEN -4 At CARO 47
Denver outright. I think maybe 5.5 or 6 would have gotten more action.


@ MIA -6 TENN 45
MIA outright. They are just 2-1 at home, but TENN 1-3 OTR. MIA is about 19th in scoring offense but TENN the NFL-worst in points surrendered, averaging 34.2 per.


@ BALT -7.5 OAK 46.5
Hmmm.....Balt perfect at home....I'm gonna pick OAK to cover. Balt is 12th in scoring (OAK 21st) and OAK gives up a ton of points but I think 7.5 -- while a solid line -- is a lot of points. Balt wins but not by this many. So say hi.


@ ATL -2.5 At NO 53.5
Is this the game where ATL is had? No. ATL is 9th in scoring (27.5), NO 10th (27.2). NO seemngly is on path at 3-2 in their last five, but two of those were so-so teams (PHI, TB). NO is 6th in points surrendered (28.6) whereas ATL is 29th, at 17.9. Take the over, for one, and I say ATL in a substantial win, on the order of 35-23.


DET -2.5 At MINN 46
I'll say DET outright. I invoke the Tao of Denny Green on Minnesota: "they are who we thought they were". I never believed in them and there's no reason to start now. Single digits, but a DET win. 24-17.


@SEA -6 NYJ 38.5
Oooohhh......tough line. Is SEA that good to get 6 (effectively, 9)? Mmmm.....probably not. Is NYJ that bad to be 9-dogs? Probably! SEA is perfect at home, NYJ 1-2 OTR but 1-4 in latst five......I think that is a big number, but I'll grudgingly say SEA outright. and the o/u says it all. You rarely see O/U int he 30s. SEA is third-best in points surrendered, and NYJ's offense is 25th in scored. Not shaping up well for the Jets, so I'll say SEA in a 23-13 type game. Under just makes sense.


DAL -2 @PHI 44.5
"Embattled coach with 3-5 record and shaky QB situation leads team against....uh.....embattled coach with 3-5 record and shaky QB situation." TSOTH factor in play. I said a couple weeks ago The Star On The Helmet gives Vegas 1.5 to 2 points, and this game should be a pick. I'll say Philly but only due to Vick getting pulled and former UofA standout Nick Foles coming in and thrwoing 3 TD passes.


@SFO -12.5 STL 38.5
I really hate this massive lines but when you put the 29th scoring offense against the best scoring defense, hard to say no to this one. But, SFO doesn't exactly light the scoreboard up either. So, take the under, but.....Against my own judgment I'll say a cover. Low scoring game, 17-9, 20-10 but a cover. (already regret saying this).


@CHI -1.5 HOUS 39.5
I haven't seen much of Chicago. Only a tenth of point difference in scoring, with HOUS 4th (29.6) and CHI 4th (29.5). Interestingly, two of the better defenses in the league, with HOUS 29th in poitn surendered (17.1) at CHI 31st (15). Hmmm....I'll say under, with a Houston win (field position, the Cutler INT factor) on the order of 17-13. Low single digits.

MNF
@PITT -12.5 KC 42
Pitt outright. what a dog of a game.

that's awesome.....

i rarely consider weather in making my picks, but i did hear something about a storm in chicago. also i wonder how the weather is in SFO.

have fun!

Other than the Iggles/Boys aka "Who'll Get Fired After The Game?" Bowl and Texans/Da Bears, just eh games all around, I might just go see Skyfall and be back by the 2nd half of games.
 
2012-11-11 12:06:00 PM
I wonder who's going to be chasing that bucket of fried chicken today. And I sincerely believe the Cardinals will trot out a midget and try to make a big running back out of him.
 
2012-11-11 12:09:33 PM
It's a shame that the only game that matters won't be played until tomorrow and that it's a dog, but I suppose I can find some entertainment value in seeing the Eagles and Cowboys in the Futility Bowl.

Then again, it is the Steelers tomorrow, so anything can happen.

Week 10 picks, for all the world to see and mock!


This week's bye are Arizona, Cleveland, Green Bay, and Washington.

THURSDAY
IND @ JAX

SUNDAY
SD @ TB
TEN @ MIA
BUF @ NE
OAK @ BAL
DEN @ CAR
NYG @ CIN
DET @ MIN
ATL @ NO

NYJ @ SEA
DAL @ PHI

STL @ SF

MONDAY
KC @ PIT

Once again, initial musings only, highly subject to change as the week goes on, and injury reports come out, and coaches/coordinators are thrown under the bus, etc.

IND @ JAX
Shad Khan was quoted yesterday saying he was 'embarrassed' by the Jags right now. I've watched some of their play, and while they occasionally look almost competent on defense, he's right for 98% of the time. This is a bad, bad team that will be competing for the #1 overall pick. Again.
News Flash: This Luck kid is kinda good. Indy still has a lot of holes in its roster, but they are 5-3 and riding a 3 game winning streak. The players they do have are leaving it all on the field, and it shows. Indy takes this easy.

SD @ TB
San Diego is somehow scoring fewer points than Tampa (+41 vs. +28), despite having perennial statistical juggernaut Philip Rivers slinging the ball around. Apparently, Rivers can only score on Mrs Rivers now. Even with Mathews, Meachem, Gates, etc they're just not putting it up on the board like they usually do, and the oline is really struggling against edge rushers. Plus, the defense gives up too many big runs.
Tampa is a confounding team. When they play well, they're EXCELLENT. They fight hard, run hard, Freeman is a BIG, strong QB that can really push the ball downfield and Vinnie Jackson is a stud. The defense is aging but still fast and well coached on-field by Barber. Right now, early line out of Vegas is Tampa by 3, essentially meaning this is an even pick. For now, I'll take Tampa at home for the win.

TEN @ MIA
Tennessee is just got gelling as a team right now. Hasselbeck isn't being smart with the football, CJ0K isn't running very well, the oline isn't blocking very well, etc etc. The defense sometimes looks OK but they just aren't playing as a unit, and Bud Adam's dire warnings of franchise-wide pink slips isn't helping.
Miami is a better team than many think...they're really flying under the radar. There's lots of 4-4 teams, but not with a defense this good. The offense is starting to move the ball well (Joe Philbin's system), and you aren't running on them. Miami is a 6 point favorite at home right now, and I think that won't be enough. This could be a blowout if Tennessee gets behind early.

BUF @ NE
Buffalo is skating by on its defense, as usual. The offense just isn't clicking. They've got some injury issues, yes, but so do 31 other teams. We'll see if getting Stevie back this week helps at all against a suspect New England pass defense. (My guess: Not enough)
New England is...well, New England. We don't need to say much here. Vegas already has them up 11. Think 'mercy rule'.

OAK @ BAL
Carson Palmer is SO streaky it hurts. The defense is soft in the middle, even though they get decent push from the dline. They drop too many balls that hit them on the hands, and don't push the run game enough even though they have McFadden. Pick any one of these as the reason they're 3-5.
Baltimore is really, really banged up. But even so, they're the Ravens run by Ozzie Newsome. Next man up! 6-2 as usual and even weakened, you don't want to play them in Baltimore. Vegas says the Ravens by 7.5 and I think that's giving too much credit to the Raiders, unless Harbaugh forgets he has Ray Rice (again) and has Flacco throw 50+ times (again).

DEN @ CAR
This *should* be a one-sided blowout. Denver's defense is fast and hard-hitting, and if they have a real weakness its against fast, accurate passers...which is pretty much the opposite of Carolina's offense. Peyton is Peyton, and still getting better every week. What we're seeing now is what 31 teams didn't want to see, and that's Manning Sr. playing in 2012 like he did in 2006.
Carolina ... man, I just don't get this team. Steve Smith is *still* the only real threat at WR (for...what is it, 17 years now?), they have $30 million dollars in running backs they barely use, and opposing defenses can key on two guys to nullify any chance of real progress. The defense is...meh.
I'll take the visiting Broncos in a big way.

NYG @ CIN
Somehow, the Bengals gonna Bengal. They've managed to lose the last 4 games after a good start. They've only beaten Cleveland, Washington, and Jacksonville. They've got a weak running game and are middle of the road at everything else.
The G-Men are 6-3 and they move the ball almost at will. They have a good balance of run/pass and a relentless pass rush that excels at getting quick pressure, taking a lot of the load off the secondary. Vegas says the Giants by 4.5, and I think that's being damned generous. I forsee a fortyburger.

DET @ MIN
What I love about Detroit is that they never, ever give up. Even when they lose, you can't turn the channel, as Stafford is gonna have them in it to the very end. Calvin Johnson is still arguable the best receiver in football, Pettigrew would be a beast if he'd catch the farking thing with more consistency, and I like what Leshure is starting to become out of the backfield. 5000 isn't outside the realm of possibility again. The big weakness is the back end, where they've had more injuries than almost anyone. If you can slow the explosive pass rush, you can move the ball on them.
Ahh, Minnesota. You have Percy Harvin and AP. If Christian can keep his shiat together and not make dumb mistakes/turnovers, they can be in this to the end. The back end of the Vike's D is getting better every week, and special teams is really making a difference in field position. This is a close game, in Minnesota. I'll pencil in the Lions for now.

ATL @ NO
New Orleans defense is really, really, REALLY bad at almost everything. Except blitzing. As Mike Vick found out last night. Matt Ryan and Co. is going to tear them up. They'll be missing tackles on Turner and White and Gonzalez all night. The saving grace is Drew Brees and that offense....they put up a bunch of points.
Atlanta hasn't really beaten much for strong opponents. This is gonna be a tough divisional game for them, on the road, and they will give up a lot of points to Drew. This will likely be another of those 38-35 type finishes where the last team on offense wins it with a late field goal. The early line is dead even, and that should tell you something. My magic 8 ball says Atlanta here, but this may change before kickoff.

NYJ @ SEA
I really shouldn't take this much dark enjoyment from watching a team flail about helplessly, but I just can't help it. Seattle's defense is way too fast, hits way too hard, and just out hustles the J E S T in every way. The offense with Russel Wilson moves the ball well, and they have a bunch of nobodies that outs points up. Don't even bring up Marshawn Lynch running in that building.
The Hawks are already 7 point favorites, and I think that's being generous.

DAL @ PHI
Since I still haven't figured out how to call down a meteor strike on command, one of these two teams will have to win. In a game that will bear eerie resemblance to two retards in the back of a short bus slap-fighting over the last tater tot, Mike Vick will probably get knocked out of the game while fumbling on a strip sack on a broken play where the green-jersey'd turnstiles of his supposed offensive line let Demarcus Ware into the backfield before the snap, and Foles will throw like 7 interceptions.
As much as Tony can choke away a victory while Garrett ices his own kicker and calls two time outs in the first 5 minutes of the first quarter, they'll outlast the almost comically inept Eagles as Philadelphia continues to implode under the suckage of Andy Reids personal gravity well. The Cowboys by a single score.

STL @ SF
St Louis is still Steven Jackson's team, but Richardson 2.0 is coming along nicely. When facing a good offensive team, they lose by a lot. But when facing a middle of the road or worse offense, they're in it to the end and even win occasionally. The problem is, San Fran is a damn good football team, head and shoulders just better than the Rams at almost every position. While the Rams D will keep the Niners honest and running the ball a lot, I don't see them doing enough by any stretch of the imagination. Vegas says SF by *12*. On Tuesday. That should tell you something.

KC @ PIT
Pittsburgh is banged up, but they are still the Steelers, and they play hard no matter what. There's a reason that they consider 8-8 to be a BAD year, and it is consistent effort like we saw against New York Sunday that causes it.
KC is almost as bad as Jacksonville. Matt Cassel is not worth starting QB money, and the rest of the team is stuck trying to fake that he is. They have some really good individual players, but you can't make up for poor scheming, poor coaching, and poor drafting with a couple susperstar talents on the field. It just isn't enough. The Steelers will simply overpower the hapless Chiefs and have their wa...

Ya know what, I'm not gonna finish that.

no way. Norv goes first.

Remember how jerry insisted he would never fire a coach during teh season, and tehn Jerry had no choice to whack* Wade Phillips circa Week 9 or some shiat? No way Jerry does something twice in two years he'd never done in about 20. Wade was a made guy. They didn't open the books for Garrett. The way things are, if you aren't made, and you whack a made guy, that doesn't sit well. Jerry, as the head guy of family, knew this. he knew Garrett could be whacked but it couldn't be now.

2012-11-11 12:16:59 PM
All I'm asking for is that the Panthers play respectable and don't shiat the bed. Denver is going to win, and Peyton is going to carve up the secondary. So I look at success today as running the football well and not turning the ball over.

about a month ago, there was a line that opened at....shiat.....I think it was either CARO or perhaps JAX (they're teh same team to me, for some reason), I think.....anyways. The line opened at whatever team -5, and by Sunday was them +1. I was like, "whoa, six point swing in less than a week? I said to bet against them as Vegas knew something the public didn't. pretty sure that's how it went.

The Philadelphia Eagles have traded Kolb to the Arizona Cardinals for cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round pick in 2012.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: We should see the final nail in the Cowboy coffin today. And the last game with Jason Garrett as head coach.


no, no way like i said above, jerry does something twice in 24 months he's never done.

neuroflare: That was this year's pick, we still have all of next year's picks


wow. thanks. i feel a tiny bit better. i thought it was next year's.

it is still a waste but.....i guess i feel a little bit of hope.

but yeah. whis should be fired. tired of the so-called "goodwill" for a super bowl appearance 4 years ago. what about now, Cardinals?

It pains me to see Jay Glazer on the Midway. I know San Diego has a ton of advantages over Charleston, SC - but the difference just looking at Midway versus Yorktown on Friday is like night and day.

Harv72b: 84-47. If I'd gotten my pick in on time for the season-opener, I'd be a ferpectly lysdexic 84-48.


I'm going to pick the straight Vegas line this week and every other week before and after this one.
I don't know what my record is, but I do think it's the one you need to compare yourself against if your deciding if your a very,very good hitter or a very,very bad surgeon.

Good luck and may the laziest, least confident man win.

I'm tempted to pick a few Vegas line upsets now and then but there was a time I kept track of my success rate with my wallet :(

Oh, he'll do it. And then, he'll move the Cowboys to L.A., because the invisible gnome with the ax told him to.

My new betting strategy is "Any Team and Any Spread Against the Chiefs and Jags"

I also like the NE/BUF over

dammit. i was going to say, "if there wasn't an NFL rule barring owners from being coaches, he'd be the coach" but I can't find teh rule.

so i can't say it is a fact that NFL owners can't be coahces, but i'm pretty damn sure that's in place. I know back in the day you had owners as coaches (Halas, Paul Brown) but I think the modern rule is that you can't be the coach.

eddievercetti: Other than the Iggles/Boys aka "Who'll Get Fired After The Game?" Bowl and Texans/Da Bears, just eh games all around, I might just go see Skyfall and be back by the 2nd half of games.


Is there a Combined Delahomme record for both starting QB's in a game?

Yeah, but I'm not picking ATS. Besides, if I were better than Vegas I'd own an NFL team. ;)

The highlight of Buffalo's season thus far was finding themselves up 21-7 on the Patriots in the first half of their first match-up. It's been pretty much downhill since then. The interviews with various Bills personnel after that game were almost depressing. Everyone was sadly admitting that they just weren't as good as they thought they were. Christ, they sounded so hopeless that I halfway expected to hear that the franchise was disbanding mid-season.
