Moose's Weekly Picks

I need in this fraternity like Taco Bell needs to start selling chili.  We are just talking about no-brainer type stuff here.  I'd turn the Loyal Order of Moose into a well-oiled machine in no time.  Enjoying the most moose-ish of pursuits.  I'm gonna do some research, but right off the bat it sounds Canadian.  That could pose a problem.  Anyway, I was 6-8 last week.  Not great, but there were several surprising games.  Any given Sunday indeed.  Let's move forward.

Indianapolis (-3) at Tennessee:  The Colts got smacked by the Rams last week, and Tennessee lost to the Jaguars.  I bet they are both happy it was a short week.  I like the Colts defense to get after Fitzy.  He is a turnover machine.  PICK: Indy

Atlanta (-1.5) at Tampa Bay: Big win for Tampa on Monday, but they lost another running back in the process.  I like a team with a white starting running back though.  PICK: Tampa

NYJ (+1) at Buffalo:  The Jets are coming off of a bye and have the ground game working.  I thought they were going to be absolutely terrible this year.  I stand corrected.  PICK: NYJ

Detroit (-2.5) at Pittsburgh: Technically I lost taking Detroit -2.5 last week, but I'm counting (not officially of course) it as a win because they beat Chicago in Soldier Field in a tough game.  Pittsburgh has shown life lately, but I don't think they can stop the Lions. PICK: Detroit

Washington (+3.5) at Philadelphia: The Eagles have improved a lot on both sides of the ball since week 1.  Still, this will be a close game, and the Eagles are at home.  PICK: Washington

San Diego (-1.5) at Miami: Miami has been completely derailed by Jonathan Martin's bullying accusations.  PICK: San Diego (NO DOUBTER)

Baltimore (+3) at Chicago: Baltimore at home and on the road are two different teams.  The Bears are really dinged up though.  PICK: Baltimore

Cleveland (+6) at Cincinnati: Chudzinksi has got me back in his camp.  PICK: Cleveland

Oakland (+7) at Houston: Case Keenum is making the Texans forget about Matt Schaub faster than Bart, Homer and Co. forgot about Santa's Little Helper when Bart bought Laddie.  Seriously though, that episode almost made me cry.  That's not good pet ownership.  PICK: Houston

Arizona (-7) at Jacksonville: Big win for the Jags last week.  Moose has been bullish on the Cards all season though.  PICK: Arizona

Kansas City (+8) at Denver: The game of the year.  We'll see how good the Chiefs really are.  Kansas City's defense is good enough to keep them within 8 points, and Andy Reid beat Peyton and killed Austin Collie last time he played them.  PICK: Kansas City

Minnesota (+12.5) at Seattle: It hasn't always been pretty, but Seattle is 9-1.  Minnesota doesn't stand a chance.  PICK: Seattle

San Francisco (+3) at New Orleans: New Orleans at home.  Can't bet against that.  PICK: New Orleans

Green Bay (+5) at NYG:  The Giants have won three in a row against Josh Freeman, Matt Barkley and Terrelle Pryor.  Seneca Wallace and Scott Tolzien shouldn't stand in their way of win number four, but I think it remains close.  PICK: Green Bay

New England (+2.5) at Carolina: In head to head matchups between AFC/NFC teams this season, it is tied up 23-23.  In the head to head matchups involving some of the better teams from each conference, the AFC have had the upper hand I believe (think NYJ over New Orleans, Indy dismantling SF and beating SEA, Cincy beating DET and GB).  Combine that with the fact that BB has had an extra week to carve up the Panthers defense.  PICK: NEP

OVERALL: 70-75-2
