And 2020 Just keeps 2020ing us. Cincinnati over Tennessee? Minnesota over Green Bay? Tua’s Miami over the Rams? The Bucs almost falling to the Giants? I can’t be the only one who picked poorly in week 8. 8-6 for the week, 90-26-1 for the year. 77%… I’ll take it. This week won’t have as many surprises, because week 9 is full of great pick ’em games. Here are your guaranteed Pick for this week! Click the images below for more from Roughing The Passer!
The 49ers need this one far more desparately than the Packers do, and being that the Packers D dreadful against the run, it sounds like a recipe for a ‘Niners win. But after having their 2019 season dismantled by San Fran, look for the Packers to be up for some payback.
Prediction: Packers 34 49ers 27
As if this wasn’t a dreadful game to begin with… Gardner Minshew, the Jags one redeeming feature, won’t be playing.
Prediction: Texans 31 Jaguars 13
After feasting on bad teams thus far in 2020, Grandpa Rivers runs into a real D. Against the Bears D the Colts only managed 19, but that was enough to outscore Chicago. It won’t be enough against a p*ssed off Ravens team.
Prediction: Ravens 30 Colts 17
Am I the only one tired of seeing these garbage @ss NFC East matchups? And why does it seem like there are several every week?
Prediction: Giants 23 Nameless 21
The ViQueens are coming off of a big win against the Packers while the Lions got smashed by the Colts. That would seem to lead to a Minnesota pick. Will the Lions rise up and surprise us this week, or will they remember they’re the Lions? Never bet on Detroit..
Prediction: ViQueens 27 Lions 24
This is suddenly a game where both teams desperately need a win. If the Bears could find something remotely resembling consistency on O, this would be a legit Super Bowl Contender. Even with the best D in the league, they couldn’t contain Alvin Kamara, and they won’t be able to contain Derrick Henry, either.
Prediction: Titans 27 Bears 17
With CMC looking to return, this could be a surprisingly good game. The Panthers will look to control time of possession, keep Mahomes and cre off the field. Will it be enough? To make it interesting, yes. To beat the Chiefs? No.
Prediction: Chiefs 34 Panthers 28
The Bills are still looking for that signature win over an elite team, while the Seahawks are suddenly looking over their shoulder at the Cardinals. With those Cardinals coming up in two weeks again and holding the tiebreaker at the moment, Seattle can’t afford to lose here… But that D is dreadful and Josh Allen should have his way,
Prediction: Bills 37 Seahawks 34
Down the line when Drew Lock is no longer the future, but the present… this weeks comeback against the Chargers will be the game where they say we all knew. This will be a shootout, and Lock will look good against the Falcons secondary, But Matt Ryan is piling up numbers and the Falcons just have more weapons.
Prediction: Falcons 38 Broncos 28
In a week where almost every game is a toss up to pick, this might be the most fun. The Chargers might be one of the best 5 teams in the league if you don’t count the fourth quarter. Can Herbert’s brigade build a big enough lead to hold off that inevitable fourth quarter onslaught? Doubtful.
Prediction: Raiders 38 Bolts 35
Tua was singularly unimpressive in his debut, which bought Miami’s front office a week to avoid looking stupid for benching Fitzmagic. That week is up; Kyler isn’t going to stink up the place the way Goff did in the first half this week.
Prediction: Cardinals 34 ‘Phins 17
What looked like a huge game just a few weeks ago is now a Steelers bye week.
Prediction: Steelers 38 Cowboys 6
While I’ve enjoyed watching the Pats stink the joint up for the last month, they get a breather this week with the NFL’s high school team.
Prediction: Pats 27 Jets 10
The showdown is here; When the Saints knocked the Bucs down in week one, Brady was still settling in. But now both teams are coming in at full force, and the winner takes control of the NFC South. This is where the Saints lay down the law; Brady or no Brady, the NFC South is still their yard.
Prediction: Saints 35 Bucs 31
