I’ve decided to take a bye week from the Love/Hate. In order to switch it up a bit, I’m going to do a Bold Predictions segment. There will be one prediction from each game; I know this is a bit late but stay with me here.
Tennessee vs. Buffalo- Ryan Fitpatrick will throw 0 (yes, zero) picks today and will also throw for 4 TDs.
Cleveland vs. Indianapolis- At home, in the Dome, Andrew Luck will thrive. Utilizing his favorite weapon, Reggie Wayne, Luck will throw for 350+yards, 2 passing TDs and at least 1 Rushing TD.
Green Bay vs. Saint Louis- Steven Jackson will get his first rushing TD of the season, along with a 100 yard game. Yea, I said it.
Arizona vs. Minnesota- The un-established run game of the Cardinals will find itself today, and actually be fairly productive (lets say 100-125 yards) against a stud Vikings defense.
Washington vs. New York- The Giants defense will finally put RG3 in check, limiting him to under 200 passing yards and a minimal amount of rushing yards (sub 50).
New Orleans vs. Tampa Bay- A MASSIVE shootout will incur, Mike Williams will be favored over Vincent Jackson and Lance Moore will dominate on the Saints’ side.
Dallas vs. Carolina- Felix Jones will turn it on today in the absence of Demarco Murray, earning 2 rushing TDs. Also, the Cowboys Defense will have a field day with a thus far struggling Cam Newton, picking him off 3 times.
Baltimore vs. Houston- Houston goes on a loss streak (2 games) after going 5 undefeated. This will be due to the fact that Arian Foster will be kept in check, causing Schaub to throw more. This in turn will finally lead to a multi-TD game for Andre Johnson.
Jacksonville vs. Oakland- Darren McFadden has a breakout day, rushing for 150+yards and, what the hell, 3 TDs. Also, Blaine Gabbert performs so poorly that he actually gets pulled out of the game.
New York Jets vs. New England- Tebow has a more productive day then Sanchez, statistically speaking. Rex Ryan finally reaches his breaking point, and in an act of pure desperation, throws Tebow to the wolves against a Patriots Defense that already had him figured out.
Pittsburgh vs. Cincinatti- Andy Dalton keeps the great season going, throwing for over 350 yards and 4 TDs. Also, I’m going with a win from Cincy today.
Monday night: Detroit vs. Chicago- Matthew Stafford gets sacked more times than Cutler, Cutler actually DOESN’T get sacked. I know, it seems Cutler leads the league in getting sacked, but this Lions Defense is barely surviving at this point.
