Drew’s Week 9 NFL Picks

Jets @ Bills (Jets win)…I think the experience of the Jets will come into play for this game, especially on the defensive side. Expect New York to blitz Fitzpatrick early and often, try to cause some turnovers which they are highly capable of doing. Hello Stevie Johnson, welcome to Revis Island. The Jets pull out a close victory in a hard fought battle. These two teams likely will be competing hard for one of the Wild Card spots, as I figure New England will win the AFC East. This game has a lot of importance.

Seahawks @ Cowboys (Cowboys win)…After an awful, just embarrassing loss to the Eagles last Sunday Night, I expect nothing less than a total 360 from what happened a week ago. The offense will play great, starting with a balanced attack both passing, and running (now that Murray has shown he is more than capable of carrying the load). The defense should be amp’d up, and ready to prove they can put forth a better outing than last week’s showing. Seattle won’t know what hit them (actually they will, DeMarcus Ware), the ‘Boys get the W at home.

Browns @ Texans (Texans win)…The Browns are playing consecutive road games, and their offense is almost non-existent of late. Houston is home, and will look to continue it’s win streak. They get the win without a problem.

Falcons @ Colts (Falcons win)…Atlanta shouldn’t have any problems getting the victory at Indy this week, this isn’t the Colts team of old with Manning leading the charge. Painter is the QB, and the Falcons will have their way in a route of the Manning-less Colts.

Dolphins @ Chiefs (Chiefs win)…Even though Miami is winless to date, this team has fought hard, and will keep this game tight throughout. In the end, Kansas City squeezes out the victory, with the AFC West division lead staying in their favor.

Bucs @ Saints (Saints win)…New Orleans lost to the AJ Feely lead St. Louis Rams last week? Say what? Tampa Bay, don’t think you’ll push the same luck in the dome this week. Saints take it out on the Bucs this week in what could be a high scoring affair.

49ers @ Redskins (49ers win)…Washington was simply terrible last week in Toronto vs. the Bills. Nothing about this banged up roster makes me think anything will change anytime soon, the ‘Skins will be in trouble, even at home this week. Niners win a close, low scoring game.

Broncos @ Raiders (Raiders win)…Tebow vs. Palmer is all people have been talking about whene they heard this matchup was happening earlier in the week, but with Oakland coming off of a Bye Week, and looking to stay in this tight AFC West race, Palmer figures out the playbook, and plays well enough to get his team the W.

Bengals @ Titans (Bengals win)…Tough pick here, but I believe the Bengals are playing with a confidence both on offense, and defense. The rookie combo of Dalton to Green has been getting better, and better with each week, while their defense is one of the best in the league right now. Cincy wins a close one here.

Rams @ Cardinals (Rams win)…St. Louis won in New Orleans last week, wow I know right? Arizona looks to be without Kolb this week, and I think their woes continue, and St. Louis pulls of another road victory. Rams take it in a close one.

Giants @ Patriots (Patriots win)…The schedule becomes tough from this point forward for the G-Men, good luck beating New England after they lost to Pittsburgh last week, they’ve got their eyes on this victory. Plus, Bradshaw is questionable for New York, so that takes away their run game, I believe Eli will regret making those comments about how he’s on Brady’s level after this game. Giants lose, Welker carves up the defense, and even Ocho Cinco will score a TD, let alone a catch this week for the Pats.

Packers @ Chargers (Packers win)…Green Bay’s offense is hitting on all strides right now, though their pass defense is skeptical at times throughout this season, the Pack gets the win in San Diego this week. Rivers will try to keep his team within striking distance, but will come up short. Packers offense lights up the ‘Bolts defense enough to win by a close margin.

Ravens @ Steelers (Steelers win)…Sunday Night Football, a modern day rivalry, does it get any better than this people? Steelers impressed me last week beating New England, Big Ben lead their offense to big drives, and the defense held Brady under 200 yards passing. Baltimore’s defense will play well, but Pittsburgh will do enough as a unit to get this win in front of the home crowd.

Bears @ Eagles (Eagles win)…Philly, after a big time victory over my Cowboys last week will look to continue their win streak, especially on Monday Night Football with the home town fans going crazy, I think Cutler has a big time game, Forte plays great, but Chicago’s defense won’t stop the Eagles offense enough to beat them. Eagles win on the shoulders of McCoy, and Jackson.
