    Ravens at Bengals --- Ravens slightly better
    Panthers at Falcons --- Good matchup. Falcons at home
    Colts at Redskins --- Skins at home
    Texassans at Titans --- Texassans
    Iggles at Succaneers --- Iggles. Doubt Fitz will be able to rack up the points against the Iggles D.
    Chefs at Steelers --- Steelers at home.
    Fish at Jets --- Pretty closely matched teams. Jets at home.
    Chargers at Bills --- Expected more from Bills after playoff appearance last year. Chargers.
    Vikes at Pukers --- Pukers can't expect miracle finish every week against good defenses. Vikings.
    Browns at Saints --- Doubt the Brownies have the horses to keep up with the Saints. Saints at home.
    Kitties at Whiners --- Santa Clara Whiners at home.
    Cards at Rams --- Rams, easily.
    Pats at Jags --- Should be a good matchup. Going with Jags at home.
    Raiders at Broncos --- Broncos at home.
    Giants at Cowpies --- Jersey Jints take it to the Cowpies.
    Seachix at Bearsus --- Bears D looking really good with addition of Mack. Bears at home.

    Who cares? For far too many years I had to get up at 0 dark thirty to watch pro ball in a tent. Didn't take long to realize
    how little it mattered.

    For me, football is just a few hours of entertainment. A distraction from the tedium of everyday life. Kind of like this board is a distraction. Maybe it's something else for you. Why bother responding to a thread where the subject is something you don't care about?

    I've got a difference of opinion on two games.

    I am picking the Dolphins over the Jets. I have a feeling the Jets are going to come back to Earth pretty hard, although it still should be a close game.

    I'm taking the Pats over the Jags. The Jaguars are a team I somehow want to do well, but that offense just can't seem to get out of its own way, and against a team like the Patriots, that isn't a good thing.

    I considered taking the Cowboys over the Giants, and I still think the game could go either way, but I think the Giants were a bit more impressive in week 1 than the Boys, so I'll agree with your pick.

    I also thought about going with the Chiefs, but the Steelers always seem to play down to bad teams, and they are at home. Even without Bell, I'm going to look for them to bounce back.

    I kind of struggled with the Jags over Pats pick. Probably not wise to bet against Tom Brady. OTOH, the Jags have a top tier defense and are playing at home.

    Yep, definitely picked the wrong horse in that race.

    I'm actually impressed the Ravens were able to get close before the game ended.

    Trouble is, you never know what you're going to get with Dalton either. Did you honestly expect 4 TD passes in one half from him?
