After a second straight scorching week (12-2) and continuing the winning ways of picking the winners straight up, there are a bunch of what looks to be one sided games this week, seemingly more so than any other week this season. However, as they say,"...any given Sunday..." upsets do indeed happen as this week begins the reality checks of those teams who think they are still in the hunt find out how far behind they will be with roughly one third of the season complete after this weekend.
So let's get right to it:
Bills over Browns: Buffalo may be injury riddled but hey are still not as bad as Cleveland is, having scored only one offensive TD before last week's close game against the Ravens opponent this week, Cincinnati.
(More "NFL Picks & Pans" after the 'Jump')
Broncos over Patriots: Call me crazy, but this is my "Upset Special Pick of the Week!" I think Denver's defense is for real and they will begin to get everyone on their bandwagon as a legitimate contender for the AFC West. Meanwhile New England was beaten and battered from their tough win over the Ravens and I expect a drop-off from them.
(NOTE: I'll pick and pan the Ravens-Bengals game in tomorrow's post)
Last week: 12-2
Season record: 48-14
