    Big game on my RCN guide has GB going against a resurgent Rams! It's been years since they've been this good! Not sure how healthy Rodgers is at the moment, but I'd care more if he hadn't done the $$ grab sacrificing a decent DEFENSE! He can't keep outscoring with few if any stops by the other side of the ball! :bang3: :dunno: :eusa_naughty:

    Thursday Game
    Fish at Texassans --- Going with the Texassans at home.

    Sunday Games
    Iggles at Jags --- Kind of surprising that both of these teams are struggling. Going with Iggles. At least they have a good QB.
    Broncos at Chefs --- The Chefs offensive juggernaut will likely roll all over the Broncos.
    Browns at Steelers --- Browns still not good enough to win against good teams.
    Skins at Jints --- Skins having a respectable season. Jints have descended into suckdom.
    Seachix at Kitties --- Tossup. Going with Kitties at home.
    Succaneers at Bungles --- I keep wondering how the Bungles have managed to win 4 games so far, but I'll go with them against the Succaneers.
    Jets at Bears --- Bears better overall and playing at home.
    Ravens at Panthers --- Think Ravens rebound against Panthers.
    Colts at Raiders --- Fairly even matchup. Going with Colts. Gruden seems to be rebuilding and dealing off his good players.
    Whiners at Cards --- Toilet Bowl of the week. Cards at home. Only win so far has been against the Whiners a few weeks ago.
    Pukers at Rams --- Good matchup. Rams at home.
    Saints at Vikings --- My game of the week. Vikes at home.

    Monday Night Game
    Pats at Bills --- Pats easy win.

    Has Green Bay's defense been good at any time in Rodgers's tenure?

    There's more wrong with the Jags than just the QB...but a better QB would make a huge difference.
    I feel like the Seahawks may be better than I thought, while I'm still not sold on the Lions.
    I gave the Panthers the edge at home, but that could be a close game.
    Gruden is overrated. He wasn't a bad coach, but he wasn't a great one, either. Oakland certainly overpaid for him and tied themselves to him for too long.
    Niners will split with the Cards! *please please*
    Green Bay will put up some points, but I don't expect it to be especially close. The Rams are better on both sides, and playing at home, I see at least a 10 point win.
    I only picked the Vikings because they are at home. Well, that and the Saints' running game hasn't really gotten going.
    I still don't know what the Bills' management plans to do with that team. It's a shame.

    Never great, but was proficient enough to "bend but not break" and somehow beat my Bears all the time! :aargh:

    Texassans are playing very well lately. Looks like they can compete with the likes of the Pats and Chefs in the AFC. These kids, Mahomes, Watson, Goff, and Wentz, are really tearing up the league.

    That might be a bit much; during their current win streak, the Texans have beaten the Colts, Cowboys, Bills, Jags, and Dolphins. The first 3 were close games, and the Colts game was the only other one in which the Texans scored more than 20 points. For comparison, the week after the Texans beat the Colts by a FG in OT, the Pats beat the Colts by 2 TDs.

    None of this is to say the Texans aren't playing good football; they are. I don't think they've shown themselves to be at the level of the Pats and Chiefs yet, though.
