Out of the Blue

There's good news for tackle football fans, as the NFL and the referees' union have reached a tentative deal, and tonight's game will be officiated by professionals, rather than the well-meaning but frightfully incompetent replacement refs. This might have impacted last week's outcomes if it had happened in time for those games, but either way, the number of crazy upsets make this an interesting season to have challenged folks to pick games. This is evidenced by Creston and Jivaro tying for best record for the week at 8-8 (imagine if we were using the point spread!), while Mag and I were 7-9, and Cutter followed two weeks of dominance with a disastrous 4-12. Here are my pre-caffeinated picks for this week: Ravens, Falcons, Patriots, Lions, Texans, Chiefs, 49ers, Seahawks, Cardinals, Broncos, Bengals, Packers, Bucs, Giants, Cowboys.

Yeah, there were just a few games that were upsets last week. There were about 3 or 4 I was totally waffling on knowing they could go either way - same every week really - but stuff like the 49'ers, Saints, and Packers losing virtual locks are always a surprise. More tough calls to be made this week so let's go with...

Ravens, 49'ers, Rams, Falcons, Chargers, Titans, Pats, Jaguars, Broncos, Cardinals, Redskins, Packers, Eagles, Bears, Lions (if Stafford is back).
