Hognostications: Week 9

Cincinnati at Baltimore
Jamal Lewis continues to run like he doesn’t want to get hurt and even went so far as to say so.
Pick – Bengals
Tennessee at Cleveland
As hard as it is to pick the Browns, I have to pick them at home and with the better defense.
Pick – Browns
Houston at Jacksonville
The Texans still stink.
Pick – Jags
Oakland at Kansas City
This is always an easy pick. The Faiders never win in KC. Look for Holmes and Larry Johnson to have a big day rushing.
Pick – Chiefs
Atlanta at Miami
This is probably the toughest pick of the week. The Fish could pull off the upset, but I like the Falcon defense and running game.
Pick – Falcons
Detroit at Minnesota
This is the surprise pick of the week. At home and with Brad Johnson at the helm, look for the Vikes to win a close one. Plus, Harrington may start.
Pick – Vikes
San Diego at New York Jets
The Jets have the 30th ranked rush defense. Look for LT and the rest of the Charger offense to have a big day and put up a bunch of points.
Pick – Chargers
Carolina at Tampa Bay
The Panther’s rushing defense will force Simms to beat them. It won’t happen.
Pick – Panthers
Seattle at Arizona
Alexander will continue his dominance over the Cards and pad his stats, helping his campaign for a new (well deserved) contract. The Hawks continue to roll.
Pick – Seahawks
Chicago at New Orleans
Haslett said it best – they’re a bad football team.
Pick – Bears
New York Giants at San Francisco
The 9ers will be starting their fourth-string QB. At least they’ll have an excuse if they get shut out and flat out spanked!
Pick – Giants
Pittsburgh at Green Bay
Roethlisberger is hobbled but will surely play, and he and the Steelers will, as usual, play just well enough to win.
Pick – Steelers
Philadelphia at Washington
As bad as Philthy is playing, it’s still hard to find a reason to pick the Skins. Who besides me will hate hearing N.D. Kalu’s name over and over, with Samuel’s being out or at least hobbled? The Skins have lost 3 of their last 4 and haven’t beaten the Eagles since 11/25/01 (seven in a row). That doesn’t change Sunday.
Pick – Philthy
Indianapolis at New England
Think the Colts will be fired up for his one? The Colts will finally get their win over the Pats. Their first since October 2000.
Pick – Colts
Last Week’s Results: 9-5
Season To Date: 70-46
