I was 1-3 last week so take my picks at your own risk. But, I’m determined to have a comeback this week.

 

New York Giants – Green Bay Packers

The Giants are hot right now and their offense is firing on all cylinders.  I just don’t see their defense stopping Aaron Rogers and the Packers’ offense. And I trust Rogers more than I trust Eli Manning.

Look for the Packers to win a close one.

 

Baltimore Ravens – Houston Texans

I think the Ravens will be too much for the Texans to handle. Houston has had a great run but this is where the magic stops.

Ravens should control this game from the start and cruise to victory.

 

New England Patriots – Denver Broncos

America NEEDS New England to win this game just so we can stop talking about Tim Tebow. On the surface his should be a replay of their regular season meeting. But we all know it never works out that way with Tebow and the Broncos.

The Pats will win this game but it will be a lot closer than the last time they met.

 

New Orleans Saints – San Francisco 49ers

This has the making of being to best game of the weekend. The Saints are hot right now and Drew Brees seems unstoppable. The 49er defense will keep them in the game but in the end, Brees will find a way to win this game.

The Saints win in a nail biter.

Atlanta Falcons – New York Giants

At first glance this seems like Giants all the way. They are coming off a big win against the Dallas Cowboys and seem to have all the momentum. However, I still think their secondary is suspect. Roddy White and Julio Jones could put a serious hurt on them.

The key is going to be the Falcons O Line. Matt Ryan can’t get the ball to White and Jones if he is flat on his back. The Giants had Tony Romo running for his life Sunday but it looked like the Cowboys gave up early. I doubt if the Falcons will lay down like that this week.

The Falcons are a more balanced team which is why I am picking them to win.

 

Detroit Lions – New Orleans Saints

I expect A LOT of offense in this game. We could see close to 100 points scored in this game. That’s why this is the Must See Game this week. Plus we have a chance to see if Ndamukong Suh will implode again. That’s worth the price of admission right there.

Both teams seem to be built the same. The saints have already beat Detroit 31-17 this season and I don’t see why they can’t beat them again.

The score will be closer, maybe 45-41, but Drew Brees and the Saints will be victorious.
