    Re: 2022 Weekly Picks

    Week 1 was pretty brutal for me. I went only 7-8 or .467 (with one tie that is not worth counting because it does not effect winning percentage)

    This week, after going through the games my picks inadvertently end up being a home field bonanza, with 14 home team winning. I suspect that several of those home teams I have winning....wonít.

    But the Bills will BEAT THE CRAP out of Tennessee. Finally getting them at home, before a rabid crowd on Monday Night (2nd home game on Monday night in 14 years), season home opener, this is going to be fun to watch (and seeing Opi eat crow is the cherry on top )

    Anyway, here are my week 2 picks....

    Week 2
    Los Angeles Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs
    Miami Dolphins at Baltimore Ravens
    New York Jets at Cleveland Browns
    Washington Commanders at Detroit Lions
    Indianapolis Colts at Jacksonville Jaguars
    Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans Saints
    Carolina Panthers at New York Giants
    New England Patriots at Pittsburgh Steelers
    Atlanta Falcons at Los Angeles Rams
    Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers
    Cincinnati Bengals at Dallas Cowboys
    Houston Texans at Denver Broncos
    Arizona Cardinals at Las Vegas Raiders
    Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers
    Tennessee Titans at Buffalo Bills
    Minnesota Vikings at Philadelphia Eagles

    Re: 2022 Weekly Picks

    Im liking the Chargers tonight. Mack looked to be a huge addition last week. And I didn't realize how depleted the Cards D was last week.

    Re: 2022 Weekly Picks

    Last week was much better than week 1 for me. I improved to 11-5 (from a dismal 7-8) and now stand above .500 for the season.....18-13, .581. Yeah!!

    Week 3 is getting very interesting. With two of the five remaining winless teams playing each other, both of which were playoff teams last year, the loser may be sealing their fate as one of the 2021 playoff teams not getting there this year.

    Some factoids from ESPN.....

    Since 2022, just 9.6% of teams that started 0-2 have made it to the postseason, and while that seems survivable, no 0-2 team has made it to the postseason since 2018.

    (and more ominously).....

    Since 2002, 98 teams have started 0-3. One of those teams (the 2018 Texans) made it to the playoffs....
    OUCH!!!!

    The Titans looked nothing like a playoff team against the Bills. While the Raiders got burned in OT, they are clearly playing better that Tennessee. Iím picking Las Vegas to pretty much bury the Titans playoff dreams.


    Here are my week 3 picks....

    Week 3
    Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns
    New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers
    Houston Texans at Chicago Bears
    Kansas City Chiefs at Indianapolis Colts
    Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins
    Detroit Lions at Minnesota Vikings
    Baltimore Ravens at New England Patriots
    Cincinnati Bengals at New York Jets
    Las Vegas Raiders at Tennessee Titans
    Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Commanders
    Jacksonville Jaguars at Los Angeles Chargers
    Los Angeles Rams at Arizona Cardinals
    Atlanta Falcons at Seattle Seahawks
    Green Bay Packers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    San Francisco 49ers at Denver Broncos
    Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants


    Cincy salvages their season, and Iím picking the Giants over Dallas because I HATE the Cowboys (they are NOT ďAmericaís teamĒ) and Brain Daboll has earned some accolades as the Cinderella team of the first two weeks.

    Re: 2022 Weekly Picks

    Why'd you put a check mark next to the Steelers game since you got it wrong? (as did I... mom got it right though - I may need to start reading the notes she's taking while I'm at work!)

    Re: 2022 Weekly Picks

    Picking games early in the year is really difficult. I had another horrible week with a dismal 7-9 record for week 3. Still barely holding my head above .500 for the year at .532.

    Here are my week 4 picks....

    Week 4
    Miami Dolphins at Cincinnati Bengals
    Minnesota Vikings vs New Orleans Saints
    Cleveland Browns at Atlanta Falcons
    Buffalo Bills at Baltimore Ravens
    Washington Commanders at Dallas Cowboys
    Seattle Seahawks at Detroit Lions
    Los Angeles Chargers at Houston Texans
    Tennessee Titans at Indianapolis Colts
    Chicago Bears at New York Giants
    Jacksonville Jaguars at Philadelphia Eagles
    New York Jets at Pittsburgh Steelers
    Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers
    New England Patriots at Green Bay Packers
    Denver Broncos at Las Vegas Raiders
    Kansas City Chiefs at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco 49ers


    Iím projecting no undefeated teams after this week.....just the way the NFL wants it.

    Miami, coming off a emotional win (that they really did not deserve) against the Bills, their defense is going to pay the price of being on the field for 90 plays, in the heat and humidity. Going against a desperate Cincy, at home, who cannot afford to go 1-3.

    Iím picking against the Eagles....just because. So many of the picks the first three weeks that looked like no brainers, turn out the opposite. Why not the Jags gong into Philly and coming out with a win??

    Re: 2022 Weekly Picks

    Crappy picture - I'm having all kinds of techy issues lately. I'm suuuurrre that it just can't be operator error.


    Anyway - mom is kicking ass and the pressure is on. She went 11-5 for the second week in a row (31-16-1) and I "improved" to 9-7 (24-23-1).

    We haven't finished our picks for this week yet.
