Moose's Weekly Picks

When Moose's back is against the wall, he has no choice but to respond.  After a positively dreadful week four, Moose is back with a monster week five.  9-4-1 overall with another No Doubter that was true.  Let's keep the momentum going in week six.  Now cue my music!

ATLANTA (-3.5) at NEW ORLEANS: New Orleans got embarrassed by the Iggs last week, while the cardiac kids won another nail biter in Atlanta.  I can only assume the Falcons will keep rolling this week, with or without Julio Jones.  PICK: Hotlanta

DENVER (-4) at CLEVELAND: The Brownies are up after a miracle win against Baltimore last week.  Based on the law of Cleveland, what goes up must come down even further.  The Brownies will wilt under the pressure of the Broncos defense.  This will be one of those games where the Browns don't know who to start at qb after the game, and it sets their franchise back another year.  PICK: Denver

CINCINNATI (-3.5) at BUFFALO: The Bills squeaked one out against the Titans last week, and now take on the undefeated Bungals in Orchard Park.  I've been saying that the Bills are a fraud all season long, too late to turn back now.  PICK: Cincy

KANSAS CITY (+4) at MINNESOTA: Dandy Andy lost his top running back Jamaal Charles for the season and his offense seems to be sputtering.  Minnesota should hit them with a heavy dose of AP.  PICK: Minnesota

HOUSTON at JACKSONVILLE (pick 'em): Barf.  Even the oddsmakers wanted nothing to do with this game. PICK: Jacksonville

CHICAGO (+3) at DETROIT: The Lions are due for a win.  They gotta get a win here, right?  Win or lose, you have to assume Jim Caldwell is gone sometime this season.  PICK: Detroit

WASHINGTON (+6) at NYJ: The NYJ are coming off of a bye week and should be able to throw the kitchen sink at the 'skins vaunted offensive line.  Six points is a lot, but I think the Jets can cover.  PICK: NYJ

ARIZONA (-3) at PITTSBURGH: Mike Vick isn't gonna get away with those shenanigans against the Cardinals defense.  Look for Carson and Larry Fitz to have another big day.  PICK: Arizona

MIAMI (+2.5) at TENNESSEE: Philbin is gone and a 35 year old tight ends coach is now at the helm of the Dolphins.  That just goes to show you how bad Philbin was as a coach.  I'll take the Titans and Hawaiian god Marcus Mariota to win at home.  PICK: Tennessee

CAROLINA (+7) at SEATTLE: Seattle has looked extremely vulnerable this year, and Carolina might even have the better defense in this matchup.  Seattle might win, but the Panthers will cover.  PICK: Carolina

SAN DIEGO (+10.5) at GREEN BAY: San Diego's defense is softer than the Charmin that Phil Rivers wipes his butt with.  The Packers offense hasn't been firing on all cylinders this season, but this could be the game where everything clicks.  PICK: Green Bay

BALTIMORE (-2.5) at SAN FRANCISCO: Hard to believe that these two teams played in the Super Bowl three years ago.  Both of them have been failing to close out tight games, and just like Garfunkel, Messina, Oates and Lisa I would go to their games just to boo them.  PICK: San Francisco

NEP (-8) at INDIANAPOLIS: The Pats have slaughtered the Colts the last five or so times they have played them.  What's worse than that, they have done the same thing every time by running the ball down the Colts' throats.  Indy knows what is coming and they can't do anything about it.  I'll go NO DOUBTER here for the second week in a row.  PICK: NEP

NYG (+4) at PHILADELPHIA: FINALLY, and NFC East game of consequence.  The NYG have been playing well the past few weeks, but are a little dinged up coming into this one on Monday night.  The Iggs finally put a four quarter effort together against the lowly Saints, and hopefully that revvs up the Chip Kelly offense.  I expect this to be a close game, and it could come down to a field goal.  In that case, I will take the G-Men and the points.  PICK: NYG

LAST WEEK: 9-4-1
OVERALL: 40-34-3
