(BYES: MIAMI, OAKLAND)
Thursday, October 2
Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers — 8:25 p.m.
Andrew – Green Bay. Yup. Yup. Yuuuuuup.
Greg – Green Bay. Aaron Rodgers told us to R-E-L-A-X, so I’ll relax and go with the Packers who seem to be getting some things figured out. I do want to give a kudos to the Vikings because they are all banged up (and suspended) and are still playing decent ball.
Genesis – Packers. Because, cheese.
Sunday, October 5
Chicago Bears at Carolina Panthers — 1:00 p.m.
Greg – Chicago Bears. The Panthers are not playing great ball right now, and while the Bears are coming off a bad loss to the Packers, I’ll still take Cutler in this one.
Genesis – Panthers. Because, meow.
Houston Texans at Dallas Cowboys — 1:00 p.m.
Greg – Dallas. I think this will be a close sloppy game, with both teams trying not to win. That said, I think the Cowboys take this one late.
Genesis – Texans. Because, Watt.
Buffalo Bills at Detroit Lions — 1:00 p.m.
Greg – Detroit. After starting out with two big wins, the Bills are now reeling and don’t have a true starting quarterback. I expect Orton to do his best and make some plays, but it won’t be enough in the end.
Genesis – Lions. Because, better.
Baltimore Ravens at Indianapolis Colts — 1:00 p.m.
Greg – Indianapolis. The Colts have beat up on two bad teams over the past two weeks, now they face a (semi) better team in the Ravens. I like Luck.
Genesis – Colts. Because, Luck.
Pittsburgh Steelers at Jacksonville Jaguars — 1:00 p.m.
Greg – Pittsburgh. Hey, these Jags could go winless this year.
Genesis – Steelers. Because, Rothlishamburger.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans Saints — 1:00 p.m.
Greg – New Orleans. Hey nice win last week Bucs! But unfortunately, the Saints don’t lose at home.
Genesis – Buccs. Because, upset.
Atlanta Falcons at New York Giants — 1:00 p.m.
Greg – Atlanta. Coming off a loss, I think they get up for this game. I also don’t believe the Giants are as good as they looked against the Redskins.
Genesis – Falcons. Because, Eli face.
St. Louis Rams at Philadelphia Eagles — 1:00 p.m.
Greg – Philadelphia. Will be interesting to see Austin’s development as a quarterback, but they will not be able to keep up with this offense.
Genesis – Eagles. Because, turbo speed.
Cleveland Browns at Tennessee Titans — 1:00 p.m.
Greg – Cleveland. They’ve had a bye week just to prepare for the Titans? They better destroy them.
Genesis – Browns. Because, surprisingly good.
Arizona Cardinals at Denver Broncos — 4:05 p.m.
Greg – Denver. This game is actually a toss up for me. I don’t have a lot of confidence in the Broncos, and the Cards have had two weeks to prep for them, but at home, I’ll still go with the Broncos.
Genesis – Broncos. Because, #DatOffense.
New York Jets at San Diego Chargers — 4:25 p.m.
San Diego. Oh Jets. Travelling cross country with the worst QB statistically starting for you.
Genesis – Chargers. Because, Eddie Royal.
Kansas City Chiefs at San Francisco 49ers — 4:25 p.m.
Greg – San Francisco. I think this is a big let down for the Chiefs coming off the high of MNF. The 49ers will jump out to a big lead and will win by 6.
Genesis – Chiefs. Because, 49ers downward spiral.
Cincinnati Bengals at New England Patriots * — 8:30 p.m.
Greg – New England. Surely there is no way the Patriots lose two in a row right? Certainly not at home….
Genesis – Bengals. Because, non-existent Pats offense.
Monday, October 6
Seattle Seahawks at Washington [Expletive Deleted] — 8:30 p.m.
Greg – Seattle. I think this game will be close and the Seahawks will have a mistake prone game. That said, Washington won’t be able to capitalize on them to win the game.
Genesis – Seahawks. Because, Native American curse.
