Column as I see ’em – Week 9

Week 9 predictions


Kansas City at San Diego

The Chargers have quickly dropped from contenders to pretenders, the Chiefs have a field day with Rivers. Kansas City by 10.



Denver at Cincinnati

Peyton is playing his best and really settling in with his receivers, especially Eric Decker. Definitely the strongest team to come out of the West going into playoffs. Broncos by 14.

Baltimore at Cleveland

Oddly quiet at 5-2, the Ravens look to make a run deep into the playoffs. Two games against the Steelers are the only potential roadblocks for Flacco and the Ravens. Baltimore by 10.

Arizona at Green Bay

The cold field of Lambeau will slow down the Cardinals who are already on a four game losing streak. Arizona’s strong passing defense will make it hard on Rodgers, so look for their RB’s to carry. Packers by 14.

Chicago at Tennessee

The Bears squeaked on out against Carolina last week, but look for a solid turnaround against the 3-5 Titans. Bears by 10.

Miami at Indianapolis

Colts and Luck will take advantage of the cold weather to take their record to a surprising 6-3. Colts by 7.

Carolina at Washington

The RG3 and Alfred Morris duo are second in the league for rushing yards. This does not help the fact that they are in last place in the NFC East. RG3 will beat out Cam Newton in this game, Redskins by 10.

Detroit at Jacksonville

Detroit is still in contention for playoffs, the injury to Calvin Johnson was a setback for the Lions. He is active during this game, look for them to finish the season strong with a possible wildcard spot. Lions by 14.

Buffalo at Houston

Houston comes back from their bye week looking solid and ready for the playoffs. Once more passing is worked into the gameplan, they will be the perfect team. Texans by 21.

Tampa Bay at Oakland

Tampa Bay is in second place in the NFC South with a 3-4 record, but they laid a smackdown on Minnesota last week. Bucs by 10. 

Minnesota at Seattle

NFC North teams seem to have difficulty with the Seahawks and Minnesota is on a downhill slide. Seattle by 10. 

Pittsburgh at NY Giants

Giants and Manning continue to win, against all odds. Giants by 3.

Dallas at Atlanta

Atlanta remains undefeated against the tragic comedy that is the Dallas Cowboys. Falcons by 14.



Philadelphia at New Orleans

Eagles and Vick continue to work out the kinks in their system, mainly Michael Vick. Philly by 14.
