Daniel Park: Hey, your last name is a conjunction AND named after Mark Sanchez's notorious Butt Fumble gaffe. How exciting!
Jason Butt: ...
DP: Guess who's winning our Race to Chipotle? Yes sir, I'd like a side of guac with that entrée, thanks. I went 9-5 last week with a clutch Chiefs over Seahawks pick. Butt played it safe like the recorder in second grade. For the season I am 99-60-1, he's 98-61-1.
20 Chiefs at 24 Raiders
Park's take: This game already happened and I genuinely thought the Chiefs would win by the score below:
Park's pick: Chiefs 20, Raiders 17
Butt's take: I took the Chiefs too. Oops.
Butt's pick: Chiefs 27, Raiders 17
Browns at Falcons
Park's take: While there's a slight chance for snow this weekend. ...
Park's pick: Browns 24, Falcons 13
Butt's take: The Falcons have won two in a row. But how in the world are they going to defend Josh Gordon?
Butt's pick: Browns 27, Falcons 21
Buccaneers at Bears
Park's take: Can you teach me how to Lovie? The Bears aren't messing around anymore. Too bad the Buccaneers aren't either. #RoadWarriors
Park's pick: Buccaneers 28, Bears 14
Butt's take: Some are saying the 2-8 Buccaneers could wind up winning the NFC South. They won't. Can they beat the Bears? Most definitely.
Butt's pick: Buccaneers 21, Bears 17
Bengals at Texans
Park's take: Tough take here. While I hope the best for quarterback Ryan Mallett, I also see A.J. Green flying to space and back.
Park's pick: Bengals 23, Texans 13
Butt's take: The Bengals got back to looking like a potential postseason team last week. This Sunday, they'll be going against a much tougher defense though. However, I still like Cincinnati to win.
Butt's pick: Bengals 21, Texans 17
Jaguars at Colts
Park's take: Call me crazy but I think the Colts will block a game-winning field goal attempt to seal the deal.
Park's pick: Colts 20, Jaguars 18
Butt's take: You're crazy, Park.
Butt's pick: Colts 41, Jaguars 17
Packers at Vikings
Park's take: Rumor has it: Butt is secretly a Vikings aficionado. #Exposed
Park's pick: Packers 53, Vikings 21
Butt's take: Hey, who told you that?
Butt's pick: Packers 38, Vikings 20
Lions at Patriots
Park's take: Both teams are evenly matched. I'll take Patriots because I'm a firm believer in the Belichick. The football genius doesn't care if he's against the best team in the league, or the worst team in the Arena Football League. Football is football.
Park's pick: Patriots 30, Lions 17
Butt's take: Can't go against New England at this point with how its played of late.
Butt's pick: Patriots 31, Lions 24
Titans at Eagles
Park's take: If the Titans win I will film myself at McDonald's ordering a Mettenberger.
Park's pick: Eagles 37, Titans 12
Butt's take: Philly rebounds after a miserable game against Green Bay.
Butt's pick: Eagles 35, Titans 14
Rams at Chargers
Park's take: I made a decision after digesting every thought on this matchup. The Rams defensive line is grossly good. The sky's the limit for the Chargers offense at any given time. The Rams crushed Denver, snipped San Fran by one and juiced Seattle by two. Darn.
Park's pick: Chargers 21, Rams 14
Butt's take: Can the Rams sustain the momentum they had from last week's big win over Denver? Sure, why not?
Butt's pick: Rams 24, Chargers 21
Cardinals at Seahawks
Park's take: Breathe, Daniel, you've been through this before. Break them down. Don't buy into the stats, headlines; hone into key injuries, style of play, coaching. Imagine the refereeing, blown calls. ... The Seahawks will. ...
Park's pick: Cardinals 21, Seahawks 17
Butt's take: The Cardinals are the best team in the NFL. But this game is at Seattle. Then again, no one has been able to run against the Cardinals this year. I still like Russell Wilson to get the job done, though.
Butt's pick: Seahawks 27, Cardinals 24
Dolphins at Broncos
Park's take: The Broncos really don't want to miss out on a postseason entrance because they lost to the beautiful water creatures at Mile High.
Park's pick: Broncos 30, Dolphins 27
Butt's take: Last week was a fluke. The Broncos get back to business against a pretty good Dolphins defense.
Butt's pick: Broncos 28, Dolphins 20
Redskins at 49ers
Park's take: Griffin III versus Kaepernick. I wonder how much that football card's worth. #12Cents Oh, could someone check how many Redskins players are under the bus?
Park's pick: 49ers 42, Redskins 23
Butt's take: The Redskins have become a laughing stock. Will Jay Gruden be back next year? Seriously.
Butt's pick: 49ers 31, Redskins 14
Cowboys at Giants
Park's take: I just noticed it says "Butt's pick" above my name. Wow. The Cowboys will "butt's pick" Eli Manning off four times this Sunday.
Park's pick: Cowboys 31, Giants 21
Butt's take: Yes, the Cowboys will in fact "butt's pick" Eli Manning four times. I'm down with that prediction.
Butt's pick: Cowboys 38, Giants 24
Park's take: I won't waste your time analyzing this decision. The Bills defense will rectify their game-costing mistakes in their loss to Miami. #SorryChris
Park's pick: Bills 24, Jets 20
Butt's take: The Bills should be able to win this game, even away from home in Detroit. Way to go, blizzard.
Butt's pick: Bills 20, Jets 17
