Week 9 NFL Picks: Raiders Get A Big Win


Here are my week nine NFL picks:

Patriots 40 Redskin 16

The line right now is at 15, and that is on the money. The Patriots are better than Washington in all facets of the game, and barring any crazy injuries, the Pats should roll.

Panthers 23 Packers 21

I still think the Packers will be contenders in the NFC, but last week’s game really showed how few weapons Aaron Rodgers has on his offense right now. Rodgers is a great quarterback, so he will start to turn it around, but the Panthers win a close one at home.

Saints 30 Titans 17

The Saints have been playing very well on offense, and the Titans don’t have the firepower to keep up with Drew Brees and company.

Bills 27 Dolphins 23

Both of these teams are heading in the wrong direction because the Patriots broke them. I thought the Bills could make the playoffs at the beginning of the season, but not anymore. However, they ultimately get the close division win.

Vikings 24 Rams 20

Minnesota has quietly put together a very nice season, as they enter this game with a 5-2 record. The Rams have a ferocious defensive front, but I am much more confident in Teddy Bridgewater than Nick Foles right now.

Jets 20 Jaguars 17

The Jets are in free-fall mode, but luckily for them, they get the Jaguars tomorrow. This will be an extremely ugly game, but New York gets the win.

Raiders 31 Steelers 27

Big Ben is still hurt, and Le’Veon Bell is out for the season. I like what I have seen from Derek Carr and company this season, and I believe they will get a huge win on the road.

Giants 27 Bucs 24

There will be a lot of interceptions thrown in this game. I’ll go bold and say 6 combined between the two quarterbacks.

Falcons 35 Niners 10

This will be ugly.

Broncos 23 Colts 13

Nothing makes me happier than seeing the Colts lose, and while I think they will keep this one close, they are no match for the Broncos.

Eagles 27 Cowboys 19


Chargers 26 Bears 23

Even though the Chargers stink this season, Phillip Rivers has been on an absolute tear, and I trust him much more than Jay Cutler at this point.
