Team Quriosity (3-0) at San Francisco Gentlemen (1-2) Team Warrior (2-1) at Team Unusual (2-1) Team Jarrell (1-2) at Team Life (0-3) Team Hernandez (1-1) at The Romulus Lynch Mob (3-0) BloggingTheBoys KDP (1-1) at Team Zyclon (1-1) Byes: Noble Beastmode i failed to edit my picks or vote on matches last week once lineups were set, but based on early predictions, i still went 3/5. that's 12/15, or 80%, on the season thus far. not bad. as for the actual league, here's last week's results. away/home ATL v. TB NE v. BUF SF v. CIN MIA v. CLE DEN v. TEN DET v. MIN HOU v. NO NYG v. PHI JAC v. CAR NYJ v. OAK BAL v. STL KC v. SD GB v. CHI ARI v. SEA PIT v. IND (snf) WSH v. DAL (mnf) 9/16, or 56.25%. and, my picks for this week. ATL v. SEA CAR v. CHI BUF v. CIN TEN v. CLE DET v. DAL MIN v. KC WSH v. STL SF v. PHI NO v. JAC PIT v. HOU NYG v. ARI DEN v. GB NE v. OAK MIA v. SD NYJ v. BAL (snf) IND v. TB (mnf) ATL v. SEA S. Rice has a big game, but SEA ultimately loses it in the fourth quarter. Julio scores his first TD of the season. CAR v. CHI CAR finally looks impressive AND wins a game against what i'd call a struggling bears team. Newton is hungry. Williams/Stewart still disappoint. Newton scores the goal-line TD, either through the air or on the ground. BUF v. CIN Green and Dalton bounce back, but Buffalo continues to roll. Fred Jackson continues to impress. TEN v. CLE close game here, with Hardesty impressing the most from the backfield, but fails to score. Hasselbeck doesn't miss Britt as much as we'd expect, and TEN keeps on trucking, winning in a close one. DET v. DAL not expecting the shootout others are, as i don't believe DAL can hang, but i'm not expecting a blowout either. still, Stafford doesn't disappoint, and pulls it out here without worry. MIN v. KC not sure it classifies as an upset either way, KC wins in an uninteresting game. low scores all around. WSH v. STL STL continues to struggle, while WSH bounces back from a tough loss last week against a weak DAL team. grossman might throw a pick or two, but i think he wins big here with better weapons. SF v. PHI i'm still hanging on to vick, and i think this will be his bounceback week. i think SF will play gore in desperation, but he won't last a half. hunter scores, but doesn't dominate. jackson has a big game with maclin out, and vick has his first rushing TD of the season. NO v. JAC not much to say here. jacksonville is outmatched. saints win big. PIT v. HOU i called houston to win initially, but may change my predictions. they just cut slaton, while tate is suffering from an ankle injury and foster has yet to prove his worth in 2011, albeit due to a nagging hamstring injury. still, i never trust the first game back. PIT should have the upside here. great game, can't wait to see the outcome. NYG v. ARI i think ARI has a chance, but i like what i saw last week from NYG. it all depends on eli imo, but i think he has what it takes to outmatch kolb. fitz still scores. DEN v. GB GB keeps rolling, but the game is closer than most expect. DEN finally looks good, but gets handed a tough L against a superbowl caliber GB. NE v. OAK i like OAK. dare i say, i'm a fan of OAK this year. DMC is nasty, and they have some nice weapons in ford, reece, and moore. campbell isn't terrible either. in all honesty, NE should win. but they haven't been able to contain explosive offenses all year long so i'm calling OAK in another upset. MIA v. SD i really like MIA's chances to post their first win. Thomas is coming along nicely, and they've finally found a safe backup in Slaton. SD is off and on, and i just think they'll be off enough to lose in an upset here. in other news, SD is at home, so i'm not quite convinced. rivers/mathews/jackson are hard to bet against. with no money on the table, i'm still calling the upset for kicks. NYJ v. BAL (snf) big game here. i think i should change my prediction. honestly, the jets have more weapons and sanchez can make big plays on big stages. i think BAL struggles here and may drop one. IND v. TB (mnf) easy call. i haven't been THAT impressed with TB, but i think they have what it takes to outmatch Painter and a struggling IND team. Blount goes ham here. as for matchups, i see me and jook possibly being a close one. warrior and my wife should be dope, but i think she'll pull it out. syn should win easily over an inactive life roster. MP has the best roster thus far, so i don't see any issues with a win there. and i think zyc keeps his highscoring streak going and defeats KDP. his defense will win the game for him, if necessary.
