    Hey hey, I win a week. Both hell and Chicago have frozen over. Lucky for me.

    Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears ---> CHI Worst game of the week.
    Miami Dolphins at Cleveland Browns ---> CLE No one cares.
    Washington Redskins at Green Bay Packers ---> Sigh, GB.
    Cincinnati Bengals at Kansas City Chiefs ---> CIN I'm fairly certain I could cover any spread against the Chiefs, solo.
    Tennessee Titans at Tampa Bay Buccaneers ---> I don't know. I think this is the game of the week. I'll take TEN BAY. Or...Tampasee. I go with Vince Young. If he stays with the Titans, I take them. If he finds a way to defect to the Bucs, I take them.
    St. Louis Rams at Baltimore Ravens ---> BAL, I guess.
    Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars ---> JAX Clever one liner about kitties.
    Philadelphia Eagles at NY Jets ---> PHI I feel bad for the Jets.
    Carolina Panthers at Arizona Cardinals ---> ARI Yes, I took Carolina last week. Souls are for people who don't want to win pick 'em.
    Oakland Raiders at San Diego Chargers ---> SD (I think Oakland is going to win though. Probably because I'm stupid.)
    New England Patriots at Dallas Cowboys ---> NE Announcers explode as they all try to fellate Romo and Brady simultaneously.
    New Orleans Saints at Seattle Seahawks ---> NO (They gotta win one, right?)
    NY Giants at Atlanta Falcons ---> Can I pick no one? I don't know. Giants because the Falcons find a way to spontaneously combust.

    Points: 2? Nah, 27.

    Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears

    The Vikings are awful. But they're also only allowing 60 yards rushing per game. Forcing the Bears to pass. Scary thought. Vikings pull out a win.

    Miami Dolphins at Cleveland Browns

    Kill it. Kill it with fire and make it die. Browns "win".

    Washington Redskins at Green Bay Packers

    Brett. ****ing. Favre. Retirement? He's currently the #1 QB in the NFL. Packers win handily.

    Cincinnati Bengals at Kansas City Chiefs

    Fortunately for the Chiefs, you don't need a QB to beat the Bengals. Just run. Every single play. Seriously, go ahead. It'll work. Chiefs win.

    Tennessee Titans at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    The Titans have over 150 rushing yards per game. The Bucs are allowing over 125 per game. The Titans have the 5th ranked defense in the NFL. Defense and running game? Titans win.

    St. Louis Rams at Baltimore Ravens

    Last week on my favorite television show (The Unit), there was a small plane carrying deadly chemicals headed towards St. Louis. That has absolutely nothing to do with my pick, but for some reason it just springs to mind when I think about what's about to happen to the Rams this weekend. I don't care if McNair or Boller starts, the Ravens will win easily.

    Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars

    If history is any indication, I'm going to miss multiple picks this week. I feel whichever way I pick here, I'm almost bound to be wrong. This is going to be a really great game. The AFC South is the toughest division in the NFL right now, hands down. I pick the Jaguars, but I wouldn't be a bit surprised if I'm dead wrong.

    Philadelphia Eagles at NY Jets

    The Eagles aren't as bad as their record. The Jets, somehow, are worse than theirs. Eagles win.

    Carolina Panthers at Arizona Cardinals

    Kurt Warner still has some good football left in him. He's going to show that this weekend against a team that seems to have forgotten they've got a good defense, and are allowed to use it.

    Oakland Raiders at San Diego Chargers

    Spanking. I'm a Raiders fan, so I hate to say it. But yeah, serious spanking.

    New England Patriots at Dallas Cowboys

    Game of the week. It's gonna be a close one, but the Patriots pull this one out. And then make a fortune selling the videos on E-Bay.

    New Orleans Saints at Seattle Seahawks

    This game smells like a trap. But not quite bad enough to change my pick. Seahawks win, but I hope they're taking this game seriously...

    NY Giants at Atlanta Falcons

    Giants eat Falcons. I think the only reason anyone would even consider Atlanta is because they're at home on MNF. Unfortunately, that only matters if the team's pride hasn't already been broken a half dozen times. Giants win, and make it look easy.

    Total points for the Giants/Falcons game: 45. (Giants 24, Falcons 21.)

    Minnesota at Chicago
    The Bears win even though half of the defense is on a casting call for "ER".

    Miami at Cleveland
    They may "look" better, but I do not yet trust Cleveland to win games that they are "supposed" to win.

    Washington at Green Bay
    The Redskins shall prevail in this "Battle of the Punters". Or it could be the first 0-0 tie in NFL history.

    Cincinnati at Kansas City
    Nine of my thirteen picks are road teams this week, so I expect to get burned a bit... but not on this one.

    Tennessee at Tampa Bay
    Brady and Manning might get all the hype, but I swear that Vince Young is the best leader in the league today.

    St. Louis at Baltimore
    Rams coaches have already begun looking for jobs as their front office starts pondering what to do with next years number one pick.

    Houston at Jacksonville
    Note to Texas residents: Houston has a better team than Dallas does. Time to get on the bandwagon!

    Philadelphia at NY Jets
    The Mangenius needs to get Pennington to stop throwing like a girl. It's a football, not a shotput.

    Carolina at Arizona
    Testaverde doesn't know which to cash first: his game check, or his social security check.

    Oakland at San Diego
    Charger fans tailgate by eating Sushi. Raider fans tailgate by eating grilled Charger fans.

    New England at Dallas
    Are the Cowboys for real? The 6-19 combined record of their opponents would suggest "NOT!"

    New Orleans at Seattle
    Brees skips the game and elects to have surgery to remove his face from his birthmark.

    NY Giants at Atlanta
    Brother P Mann inspires his kid brother by dressing like a cheerleader.

    Where do you get the order of the games from, Rafty? It's a different order than nfl.com. Just curious.

    ESPN. I used to get them from NFL.com, but since they updated their site, they only list abbreviations for the games. ESPN at least lists the entire city name. Laziness FTW!

    Dallas and New England will have to work very hard to outperform LSU and Kentucky.

    As much as I would like to win a week, I still have to go for the Cowboys as I hate New England.

    Anyone have the slightest idea what the HELL the Seahawks were thinking with those final two plays?
