Moose's Weekly Picks

Another week above ground for Moose is a good week.  I thought I did better, but 7-5-2 is not bad.  Shame on me for ever picking the Titans as a No Doubter.  Anyone who knows this blog knows that the Titans are one of my least favorite teams to pick.  I am always wrong about the Titans.  Always.  We will get into it more in their game breakdown, but this week doesn't look any easier.  Anyhow, let's get to the games.

CLEVELAND (+11) at CINCINNATI: Is anybody else glad this game is finally here so we don't have to see any more of those stupid commercials with the judge and the hot dog vendor?  No way to put lipstick on this pig, and the NFL just made it worse with those commercials.  Ohio probably cares so much about this game, and nobody else in the world gives a damn.  I have gone on record, and will continue to say that Ohio is the worst state in the country.  PICK: Cincy

OAKLAND (+4.5) at PITTSBURGH: Pittsburgh can't beat the injury blues this year.  Big Ben comes back, Leveon Bell goes down.  Meanwhile, Oakland is playing their best football in years.  I will still take the Stillers in this one though.  PICK: Blitzburgh

JACKSONVILLE (+6.5) at NYJ: Fitzy is playing with a busted-ass hand, and the Jets are coming off of a deflating loss in Oaktown last week.  Despite those blues, I think the defense is gonna give Jacksonville fits.  PICK: NYJ

ST. LOUIS (+2) at MINNESOTA: This game could go either way. Two good defenses and two good running games on display here.  Two young quarterbacks and two speedy receivers as well.  So this is what its like when doves cry?  Good for you if you got that reference.  PICK: St. Louis


MIAMI (+3) at BUFFALO:  This is another tough one.  I don't think Buffalo's offense or defense will be able to frustrate the Dolphins as much as BB and the NEP did.  But the Bills have had a week to rest, and T-Mobile their savior should be back at QB.  PICK: Miami

TENNESSEE (+8) at NEW ORLEANS: New Orleans has had a resurgence on offense lately.  They put up 52 on the NYG last week (why didn't fucknuts punt it out of bounds, Koey?) and Drew Brees looks healthy again.  Then we have the Titans.  Fuck the Titans.  Mariota is probably going to play which could screw this whole thing up.  Fuck the Titans.  PICK: New Orleans

WASHINGTON (+14) at NEP: I played basketball with a Skins fan the other day.  At first I was like fuck no, but then he turned out to be a pretty good player and we won a few games.  PICK: NEP

GREEN BAY (-2.5) at CAROLINA: Carolina got lucky last week.  They had the game in hand and let the Colts right back in.  That won't work against the Packers.  However, the Packers defense is beginning to be exposed as a fraud.  Gotta think Rodgers can get it done here though.  PICK: Green Bay

ATLANTA (-7) at SAN FRANCISCO: Atlanta is starting to look crappy again, and now have to go on the road after a tough loss at home.  But then on the other side of the coin, San Francisco is starting Blaine Gabbert and is signing running backs off the street.  It's all relative people.  Throw this one up as my NO DOUBTER.  PICK: Hotlanta

NYG (-2.5) at TAMPA BAY: Tampa Bay got a big win at Atlanta last week, and all of a sudden Jameis is looking like the #1 pick with no turnovers in his last three games.  Meanwhile, the Giants defense is an absolute sieve (Why didn't fucknuts punt the ball out of bounds, Mudd?).  You might think this leads me to pick the Bucs.  But nay, the Giants offense will be able to overpower the Bucs defense, and Jameis won't be able to keep up.  Maybe he will pad the TD counter a bit though (couldn't find a flaming 12).  PICK: Giants


DENVER (-5) at INDIANAPOLIS: Plucky Luck looked a bit better last week, but still couldn't get it done.  The task only gets tougher this week.  The Broncos defense won't go into low gear if they are up by a few like the Panthers did.  Plus Peyton is returning to Indy so all the Colts fans will be like "Aw shucks."  PICK: Denver

PHILADELPHIA (-2.5) at DALLAS: The Iggs are healthy, the Cowboys are still not.  Unfortunately, I think this game will still be close but I think the Iggs will pull it out.  Their offense can't possibly play worse than it has so far.  They just can't.  PICK: Iggs

CHICAGO (+4) at SAN DIEGO: Big Phil Rivers might need to go to a two tight end set.  He has no other targets left.  The Bears likely won't have Matt Forte as well.  This game should suck.  PICK: Chargers

LAST WEEK: 7-5-2
OVERALL: 60-53-6
NO DOUBTER: 4-4
