Moose's Weekly Picks

I started out strong last week, but faded in the late games to finish at 7-7 for the week.  Not a complete catastrophe, but things looked so promising in the early offing.  Oh well, the work goes on.  Let's keep the good vibes going this week.

NEW ORLEANS (+3.5) at CAROLINA: Both of these teams got stung by some late-game heroics by their opponents last week.  Carolina is starting to somewhat resemble the Super Bowl runner ups from last year though.  I like them to knock off the Saints on Thursday night.  PICK: Carolina Ribs

TENNESSEE (+3) at INDIANAPOLIS: Marcus Mariota and Demarco Murray demolished the Packers last week.  This week they face a similar team in the Colts with AFC South bragging rights on the line.  The Titans keep rolling.  PICK: Tennessee

JACKSONVILLE (+6.5) at DETROIT: Who would have thought the Lions would be at the top of the NFC North heap in week 11?  Not me, but here we are.  #notmyjimcaldwell  PICK: Detroit

TAMPA BAY (+7.5) at KANSAS CITY: Fat Andy and his boys are 4-0 at home this season, but the Bucs are 3-1 on the road.  This should be a good game, but I think Andy has some tricks up his sleeve for friend of the blog Jameis Winston.  Look for Tyreek "Reek" Hill to have a big game.  PICK: Kansas


CHICAGO (+7.5) at NYG: The G-Men need to take advantage of all of these home games they have now because four out of their last six are on the road.  No Alshon Jeffery for Chicago?  No thanks.  PICK: NYG
JOHN LOADS GUEST PICK: It is well known that people in the midwest are much fatter than people on the East coast.  Probably the deep dish pizza.  That should give the Giants the edge.  PICK: NYG

ARIZONA (+2) at MINNESOTA: Oh dolly are the Minnesota Vikings reeling.  Four losses in a row and now they get a hungry Cardinals team.  Sam Bradford might die in this game.  PICK: Arizona (No Doubter)

BUFFALO (+2.5) at CINCINNATI: The Bengals are such a boring team.  If AJ Green doesn't have 200 yards and 2 touchdowns they don't win.  Look for Rex and the boys to run them over.  PICK: Buffalo

BALTIMORE (+7) at DALLAS: God I thought the Steelers had the Cowboys beaten last week.  I don't think the Ravens have the firepower to stay with them this week.  PICK: DALLAS
JOHN LOADS GUEST PICK: Similar to the city of Baltimore, the majority of the population of the Ravens are criminals.  Those are just facts.  I saw the Wire.  PICK: DALLAS

PITTSBURGH (-8) at CLEVELAND: Nothing boosts your spirits after a tough loss like a game against the Brownies.  Pittsburgh should be right back in the mix for the AFC North after this week.  PICK: Pittsburgh

MIAMI (-1.5) at LA RAMS: Goff dynasty baby!  The Rams average 15 points a game.  That's bad.  Time to see what the kid can do.  I personally think he might suck.  PICK: Dolphins

NEW ENGLAND (-13) at SAN FRANCISCO: Chip managed to knock off the Pats last season, but not so this year.  Brady is back home in California, and out for blood after a tough home loss last week.  Chipper can put that ninth straight loss on the board.  PICK: NEP

PHILADELPHIA (+6.5) at SEATTLE: The Eagles showed resolve in a big win against the Falcons last week, but that was at home.  This team doesn't perform well on the road, let alone in one of the toughest road environments in the NFL.  I gotta go with Seattle.  PICK: Seattle
JOHN LOADS GUEST PICK: Moose picked against his own team?  Man he is a bigger fraud than RFK.  I like Seattle too though.  PICK: Seattle

GREEN BAY (+2.5) at WASHINGTON: Green Bay just doesn't have it this year.  They are similar to the Colts in that they don't seem to address areas of weakness in the offseason well at all.  Look for that bitch boy Kirk to have another good game at home.  PICK: Washington
JOHN LOADS GUEST PICK: Big game for the Skins.  Might have to watch with that pretty boy Shears.  Gotta go for the cheeseheads here in honor of my jeans stench.  PICK: Green Bay

OAKLAND (-5.5) vs. HOUSTON: Hola! This game is coming at you live from Mexico City!  Look for Los Asaltantes to score in a muy rapido fashion against Los Tejanos.  Senor Derek Coche will be playing the part of Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna as he massacres the boys in rojo y azul.  PICK: Oakland


LAST WEEK: 7-7
OVERALL: 47-52-3
NO DOUBTER: 4-3
JOHN LOADS: 7-8
