NFL Picks: Can Randy Moss get revenge?Published 9:45am Wednesday, October 27, 2010
Here are the picks:
Denver at San Francisco
The Broncos are coming off a game where they let the Raiders absolutely destroy them and the 49ers haven’t been good all year.
I’ll just go with the home team.
Jacksonville at Dallas
Stick a fork in the Cowboys. Without Tony Romo they are finished.
Miami at Cincinnati
The Dolphins have been a better team on the road than they have been at home this year. Plus, after getting robbed out of a fumble recovery in the end zone that set up Pittsburgh’s game winning field goal last week, Miami should come out motivated.
Buffalo at Kansas City
Chiefs should take care of business at home.
Washington at Detroit
The third game against an NFC North team in four weeks for the Redskins. They handled the Bears and Packers in tight contests, but Detroit is coming off a bye week and Matthew Stafford may be back at the helm.
Carolina at St. Louis
Matt Moore had a good game at QB last week and he should put them past St. Louis.
Green Bay at New York Jets
The Jets are lights out on defense and Darrelle Revis says he’s now 100 percent. Unless their defensive line gets healthy, the Packer defense will likely struggle with stopping the rushing attack of LaDanian Tomlinson and Shonn Greene.
Green Bay was down to just three healthy d-linemen against the Vikings – one was a rookie taken in the seventh round and the other was a player the Packers had cut in the preseason.
Tennessee at San Diego
The Chargers just can’t finish games. New England gave them a golden opportunity by going for it on fourth down around midfield at the end of the game and failing, but the Chargers couldn’t move the ball when it counted.
Minnesota at New England
There is a chance Randy Moss plays his best game of the season against a team that traded him a few weeks ago. I just don’t know if it’ll be enough to answer the points that Tom Brady is going to lead the Pats to against Minnesota’s suspect secondary.
Tampa Bay at Arizona
Basically a wild guess.
Seattle at Oakland
This is part of my new rule, where I always pick against NFC West teams that are playing outside of the division. We’ll see if it works.
Pittsburgh at New Orleans
The Saints always seem to bring their best game at home in prime time and the Steelers are due for another loss.
Houston at Indianapolis
The Texans won round one of this matchup, but there’s no way the Colts lose at home on national TV to a division foe with Peyton Manning at the helm.
Last week: 7-7
