Okay, so I told you last week that Sunny always wears me out in these picks. Appropriately, she ran the table, winning all four games. I split, so she has a fairly insurmountable lead at this point.
In my defense, few people could’ve foreseen the Falcons’ meltdown. And even fewer could’ve predicted Tebow, although I was cheering for him. So I have to really make some hay this week.
So here we go. Here are our picks:
New Orleans at San Francisco
Sunny’s pick: Saints
Jason’s pick: Saints
No way either of us can pick against N’Awlins right now. They’re the hottest team in the league and my wife knows this. I’ll have to look for another spot where I can make up some ground.
Denver at New England
Sunny’s pick: Pats
Jason’s pick: Pats
I thought she might get caught up in all the Tebow hoopla, but again, she’s too savvy. It’s one thing to beat a battered and bruised Steeler team at home; it’s another to go cross country and face Brady and Bellichik. Pats will roll in this one.
Houston at Baltimore
Sunny’s pick: Texans
Jason’s pick: Ravens
Ahhhh, here we go. This is my chance. Although the Texans have been a nice story this year, there’s no way they win on the road with a rookie quarterback against a team like Baltimore. I’m positive about this. Which means, of course, that Baltimore will get crushed and TJ Yates will throw for 400 yards.
New York at Green Bay
Sunny’s pick: Green Bay
Jason’s pick: Green Bay
Neither of us can pick against the champs. At this point, I have to go chalk and hope the Ravens take care of business against Houston. If I have another week like I did last week I’m toast! Fingers crossed…
