The Unabashed Blogorrhea shaking and stirring while serving up pugnacious NFL and BMOC picks each and every week. Entertainment purposes only. Money back not guaranteed.
As in years past, the rules each week: fearlessly (or not) forecasting the Texans and the Cowboys always plus four other games from the weekly professional slate which supposedly allegedly offer particularly promising prospects.
And some assorted BCS selections when warranted which strike a particular fancy. No need to remind - for entertainment purposes. Only.
To the picks and nothing but the picks.
TEXANS (+3.5) at PATRIOTS.
Can Kubiak Crew keep up with Pats up tempo pace and the league’s highest points per game? Leaning “yes.” Grinding the ground game keeps Brady Bunch off the field. Joseph a critical return but this is where depleted defense can be, and likely will be, exposed. Nation’s gridworld observers expecting this is the Monday night old money New England puts nouveau AFC riche Texans in their proper place. Perhaps. But taking the points. A straight-up defeat may force Texans to win out to assure home field throughout conference playoff party.
COWBOYS (+3) at BENGALS.
Perfect place for Romo and Psychos. Fresh from yet another unimpressive win. Cincy is surging thanks to series of dregs (world champ Giants excluded). Dallas as no one to account for Geno Atkins. The entire Dallas offensive front cannot account for Geno Atkins. But there’s a certain amount of value to backing the ‘Boys as an underdog. And this is one of those times.
BROWNS (-7) at CHIEFS.
Cleveland is one of the better bad teams. KC is horrifically bad and likely emotionally spent given recent circumstances.
PANTHERS (+3.5) vs. FALCONS.
Atlanta continues to have just enough. Each and every single week. Just enough for 11-1 sounds crazy but, yeah, just enough. Cam and Carolina just never quite enough. Each and every single week, just not quite enough. So it’s close in Carolina and taking the points.
RAVENS (+2.5) at REDSKINS.
Battle of the Beltways. Does this officially count as a roadie for Bahlmer? Ravens tend to turn rancid on the road. Then again, D.C. seems to have the least friendly home turf ad in the NFL. Coolest Cat Robert Griffin comes up just short.
SAINTS (+4.5) at GIANTS.
Once the calendar turns into December New York’s varsity routinely morphs into true identity. But believing Brees can keep it close. It’s a week to week league. And this week taking the points is the route to go
NAVY (-7) vs. ARMY.
Do the Black Knights ever win in this series? Scoreboard aside, both sides obviously represent the ultimate winners. And we all are eternally fortunate that out freedoms are protected by the men in this game.
