After a very average week 9 in making predictions, especially on the Baltimore Ravens second loss to the Cincinnati Bengals this season, I'll try to get back on track today while the Ravens attempt to do the same on Monday Night Football when they visit the Cleveland Browns. I'll pick & pan that game Monday morning, but here is the rest of the slate for Sunday's games:
Steelers over Bengals: Consider me still a doubter, but as good as Cincinnati has looked this year, if they can beat the Steelers twice in the same season, they will jump to the top of most people's list as one of the best teams in the league. Until then, I'll take the Steelers in Pittsburgh over just about everybody.
Cowboys over Packers: This should be a pretty decent shootout and the only thing that separates the two teams in my opinion is that Dallas can play defense while Green Bay doesn't seem to.
Patriots over Colts (Sunday night): Earlier in the week, I was leaning the other way, but I think New England will take advantage of the injuries to Indianapolis' secondary and outscore the Colts in a great game that should either separate the Colts from the rest of the AFC or tighten up the pack of the better teams in the conference.
Last week: 7-6
Season record: 89-40
