Alright, so you probably noticed that we didn’t write one of these last week. Yeah, I’m sorry. Between traveling and not having the internet, it was a little difficult for me to get this in order. I wrote up my picks for the previous week on my phone and only half of them saved (couldn’t even find them in the auto-saved drafts). Preeeeeettttyyy frustrating. Due to the issues, I’m not going to continue to keep a cumulative score, plus I’m too lazy to add them all up each week, especially if I get distracted and lose count. Just being honest. Anyway, enough rambling, on to what you really came for. *(Greg’s note – I counted them up: Greg is at 26-22, Genesis at 26-22, and Andrew is at 17-15, seeing as only 2 of his picks saved from the last post)* Want to see who’s playing on TV in your area?

Sunday, Oct. 10 1:00 PM:
New York Giants AT Houston Texans - The Texans defense will get a boost Brian Cushing back, if he could ever stop working out! Geez! The Giants are coming off a game where they knocked out two of the Bears quarterbacks, in the process of racking up a slew of sacks. The Giants got back to running the ball and playing strong defense, the qualities that helped them beat the offensive powerhoue Patriots in the Superbowl just a few years ago (REMEMBER GREG!?).
Andrew’s pick – Houston Texans. I say this begrudgingly because Brian Cushing looks like a douche, but I still think the Giants are still struggling in some areas.
Greg’s Pick – Houston Texans. I really hate you Andrew.
Gen’s pick – New York Giants. You know, the Texans looked very impressive after playing the Colts. But last week, their win against the Raiders wasn’t that decisive. So what more against a Super Bowl team. I just don’t think they can do it. NY wins. **Doing these picks in an airport on my phone, so please excuse any typos**
St. Louis Rams AT Detroit Lions – Just a year ago, this would have been the worst game of the year. Now, it could arguably be one of the most interesting. If these two teams are going to be the two of the top teams of tomorrow, it will be interesting to see who wins this one. Unfortunately, for those arguing interesting, the Lions QB Matthew Stafford is still out with a shoulder injury, leaving inconsistent Shaun Hill to direct this rebounding team. The Rams won their last two games with the help of their top ten defense and look to establish a winning record for the first time in god knows how long.
Andrew’s pick – St. Louis Rams. Shaun Hill did about well as could be expected against the Packers. I mean they did almost win, but if people are going to stop talking about the Redskins losing to the Rams, I need them to keep winning. FOR EXAMPLE - WIN THE SUPERBOWL RAMS!!! But seriously, wouldn’t it be funny if the next decade the Rams and the Lions are like the Patriots and Colts of this past one?
Greg’s Pick – St. Louis Rams – Remember how the Rams beat the Redskins? That was pretty awesome. Bradford is becoming a great quarterback in leading this offense.
Gen’s pick – St. Louis Rams. Although both teams seem awwwful, the Rams just seem like a stronger team.
The rest of the picks after the jump!
