Week 9 is upon us tonight, as the San Diego Chargers host the Kansas City Chiefs. This is a must win for both, but a little more for the Chargers I feel. At (3-4), they still have a chance to make the playoffs. The Chiefs are (1-6), don't have a healthy QB, and have played bad in almost every game this year. Norv Turner's time in San Diego could be coming to an end even if they make the playoffs, but he could be fired tomorrow with a loss tonight. With a win, they would move to (4-4) and still have a decent shot at even winning the AFC West, but a loss would be big. They have too much talent to be (3-5). Let's get to the picks!
THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL:
Kansas City Chiefs at San Diego Chargers
Like I said, San Diego has to win.
Arizona Cardinals at Green Bay Packers
The Cardinals won their first 4 games. The Packers will give them their 5th straight loss since.
Detroit Lions at Jacksonville Jaguars
This game is a toss up, but no one in their right mind can pick the Jaguars at this moment. Still, I could see them winning.
Chicago Bears at Tennessee Titans
This is another tough one. I could see the Titans pulling off this win at home, but Cutler and the Bears need to win games like this.
Denver Broncos at Cincinnati Bengals
The Broncos are on a roll. The Bengals are not. Again, this is another game where the home team is the underdog, but I could still see them win.
Carolina Panthers at Washington Redskins
Cam Newton vs. Robert Griffin III. Should be a fun game to watch. Unfortunately, the teams around the two QB's are not that great.
Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns
I am taking the Browns in this game. The Old Browns. Ouch.
GAME OF THE WEEK:
Miami Dolphins at Indianapolis Colts
The Colts play well at home, but Miami's defense is for real. I have literally gone back and forth on who to pick in this game, that is why it is the Game of the Week.
Buffalo Bills at Houston Texans
Seriously, how can you give Ryan Fitzpatrick that contract?
Minnesota Vikings at Seattle Seahawks
The Seahawks play great at home, Minnesota looked really bad agains the Buccaneers, which means they will win on the road in Seattle right? Haha.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Oakland Raiders
Super Bowl XXXVII re-match. I am sure it will be just as good of a game. Well, maybe not. The real question is who does Jon Gruden think will win?
Pittsburgh Steelers at New York Giants
This really is the Game of the Week, but I had to give the Colts and Phins some love. Eli Manning vs. Ben Roethlisberger. 4 Super Bowl Championships between the 2004 Draft Class QB's, could one of them get their 3rd this year?
SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL:
Dallas Cowboys at Atlanta Falcons
Dallas is a confusing team. Atlanta is good, but this is a game they could lose. Still, I think Dallas will probably give the Falcons the win, even if they don't want it.
MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL:
Philadelphia Eagles at New Orleans Saints
I'm taking Drew Brees over Michael Vick. Both teams have been disappointing though, to say the least.
The Patriots might be on a BYE WEEK, but they are still playing! They just traded for Buccaneers Cornerback Aqib Talib. Finally someone to help their weak secondary.
