Apologies for the lack of a post yesterday, and apologies in advance for my picks post, which I’m completely phoning in this week.
Cardinals @ Eagles – Eagles.
Redskins @ Dolphins – Is it ridiculous to say, “Rex Grossman gives the Redskins a better chance to win?” I think he does, crazy as that may sound. Redskins in the most boring game ever.
Bills @ Cowboys – Cowboys have had bigtime trouble each of the past two weeks dealing with LeSean McCoy and Marshawn Lynch. This week they get Fred Jackson. Still, I think the Cowboys O outscores the Bills in a fun one.
Giants @ 49ers – Matchup of the day. I actually think the Giants match up favorably on offense. The Niners are the #1 run D in the NFL, which doesn’t really matter all that much, since, well… the Giants can’t run the ball anyway. However, the Niners do give it up in the air. Dallas racked up 427 passing yards against the Niners this season. The Eagles racked up 405. You can pass on them, and I think the Giants will. On the other side of the ball, the Giants can’t stop the ruin, and the Niners run the ball exceptionally well. Look for the Niners to look to control the clock, and for the Giants to air it out. I think the Giants make just enough plays to win a close one.
