It looks like some of my earlier picks aren’t going as planned. But the show must go on, and so must my picks. Here are my choices for the remaining five games.
St. Louis at Tennesse, 4:05 est – Vince Young might be inactive for this one, but either way, I can’t see the Titans giving in to the 1-11 Rams. Chris Johnson as been an absolute monster since Vince Young has entered the starting lineup, and you can’t see him letting up against this awful St. Louis team. 38-14, Titans.
Washington at Oakland, 4:05 est – Last week, we watched the Raiders come from the basement of the AFC West and take down the reigning Super Bowl champs. Although they’re streaky, they’ll have enough to outwill Jim Zorn’s team in front of a routy home crowd. Look for Gradkowski to have another successful game, while the Skins have more trouble playing well in the latter half of the game. 21-14, Raiders.
San Diego at Dallas, 4:15 est – T he Chargers have shown that they’re contenders to make a run for their conference crown in January, so it’ll be tough for Dllas to compete with them. In my opinion, the Cowboys have beaten one “good” team all year, and aren’t going to do damage to an above average defensive team if they’re passing attack isn’t absolutely lethal. Romo is going to have to work tremendously hard if he wants to steal one away from San Diego. I beleive that this won’t happen, and LT will show signs of how deadly he once was, scoring multiple touchdowns on the ground. 24-14, Chargers.
Philadelphia at New York, 8:20 est – If New York could motivate themselves and feed off of this home crowd, the Eagles shouldn’t be too much of an issue for the G-Men. But if they play carelessly, like we saw on Thanksgiving, it could be a long upcoming week for the boys in blue. McNabb and his Eagles have won three straight, all against teams .500 or below. Although momentum is great, the Giants have the sixth ranked defense in the league, which has to come up big if they want to stop McNabb’s passing attack. The home crowd will be the deciding factor in this one, as the Giants win by a touchdown late in the fourth quarter. 23-18, Giants.
