Technical difficulties delayed the posting of this week's picks, but we pressed on, knowing that our audience eagerly awaits each week our collective NFL wisdom. It's just as well we missed posting this on time. Had you followed our lead on Thursday night's Bengals-Dolphins game, you'd be looking like us this morning: foolish. Brent and I, being native Ohioans, should know better than to pick the Bengals to put together any sort of sizeable winning streak.
Last week Brent got the upper hand to bring our contest back to a dead heat. His 11-2 week narrowly edged out Betsy and I who went 10-3. That puts Brent and me at 75-45 with Betsy just behind at 69-51. There's a lot of football left to be played. Let's see who we've got this week:
|Cincinnati at Miami||Bengals||Bengals||Bengals|
|Minnesota at Dallas||Cowboys||Cowboys||Cowboys|
|Kansas City at Buffalo||Chiefs||Chiefs||Chiefs|
|San Diego at Washington||Redskins||Chargers||Chargers|
|Philadelphia at Oakland||Raiders||Eagles||Raiders|
|Tampa Bay at Seattle||Seahawks||Seahawks|
|Indianapolis at Houston||Colts||Colts||Texans|
|Baltimore at Cleveland||Ravens||Ravens||Browns|
|Pittsburgh at New England||Patriots||Patriots||Patriots|
|Atlanta at Carolina||Panthers||Panthers||Panthers|
|Tennessee at St. Louis||Rams||Rams||Rams|
|New Orleans at NY Jets||Saints||Saints||Jets|
|Chicago at Green Bay||Packers||Packers||Packers|
There are seven home underdogs out this week's 13 games. One has already won (Miami), though none of us picked them. Betsy really likes the home dogs this week, going with the Jets, Rams, Browns and Texans. Could this be the week Betsy gains ground? Or will picking the Jets and Browns doom her season? Stay tuned.
