We both took Lamar Jackson over the Jets on Thursday night, in perhaps the most obvious and safest pick of the season. Water = wet, snow = cold, Jason Garrett = fired.
Matt Ederer – Writer for Operation Sports, formerly of The Score which was formerly a TV network in in Canada, Dolphins fan, Nog enthusiast. Going with a Tecmo Bowl theme this week.
F-Dawg Johnston – Browns Fan, part-time human.
Bippity, boppity boo, without further ado, let’s get these picks underway-ith diggity.
Seattle Seahawks @ Carolina Panthers
Matt – God bless the nerds who keep updating this game
Matt’s Pick – Seattle Seahwaks
Fleet – Finally the Seahawks/Panthers matchup I have been waiting all year for…wait just a second… I haven’t been waiting for this at all. In any capacity. Seahawks don’t lose?
Fleet’s Pick – Seattle Seahawks
New England Patriots @ Cincinnati Bengals
Fleet – A matchup with the break-neck intensity of a sudoku puzzle.
Fleet’s Pick – New England Patriots
Matt – We should start nominating an official Sudoku game of the week. SPONSOR US, BIG SUDOKU.
Matt’s Pick – New England Patriots by 9 rows and columns of 1-9 points
Miami Dolphins @ New York Giants
Matt – Winning was downright neccesary for Flores’ reputation and confidence, but plz let’s lean back into the tank for the next few weeks. Giants come out strong and Eli gets himself a contract for next year, if he wants it. I won’t be heartbroken if Miami does win though. Flores coach of the year!
Matt’s Pick – New York Giants
Fleet – Fish win! Fish win!
Fleet’s Pick – Miami Dolphins
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Detroit Lions
Fleet – Yar! Dust off your favourite sea chanties, this be a win-able game for these pesky bandits of the sea.
Fleet’s Pick – Pirates!
Matt – Gross
Matt’s Pick – Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers
Matt – The Bears looked good vs a putrid Cowboys who have completely quit on their coach. The Bears are not good, THE BEARS ARE WHO WE THOUGHT THEY hits self in face with 1985 pies
Matt’s Pick – Green Bay Packers
Fleet – Aaron Rodgers has 23 tds to 2 ints this year. He has the best all time Td-Int ratio at 4.4TDs/Int. Fun! Stats! Ratios!
Fleet’s Pick – Green Bay Packers
Denver Broncos @ Kansas City Chiefs
Fleet – People are jumping onto this Drew Locke train with the same reckless abandon that I bring to the world of Bocce Ball.
Fleet’s Pick – Kansas City Chiefs
Matt’s Pick – Kansas City Chiefs
Houston Texans @ Tennessee Titans
Matt – All the makings of a CLASSIC “Ryan Tannehill shits his drawers vs a good team” game here.
Matt’s Pick – Houston Texans
Fleet – Mainly picking Tennessee because Bill O’Brien is lame. Also, revenge Tannehill is the best kinda hill. Well other than Hank…or Bobby…or Lauryn…Jonah…gradual..Cyprus…okay so he’s possibly the 7th best hill.
Fleet’s Pick – Tennessee Titans
Philadelphia Eagles @ Washington Football Team
Fleet – Time to find out just how strong these Eagles are!
Fleet’s Pick – Philadelphia Fart Noises
Matt – Big bounce back game for QB Eagles.
Matt’s Pick – Philadelphia Eagles
Cleveland Browns @ Arizona Cardinals
Matt – Feels like a Kyler upset to me. Cleveland is a terribly coached team. Baker has this weird hand thing going on. OBJ wants out. Sorry Fleetwood.
Matt’s Pick – Arizona Cardinals
Fleet – Browns will probably find a way to lose this one.
Fleet’s Pick – Cleveland Browns
Jacksonville Jaguars @ Oakland Raiders
“Watch this”, Minshew rifles a steak at the face of Gruden. Proceeds to get sacked. Raiders win and I pick the wrong team cause I’m going with the more hilarious qb situation.
Fleet’s Pick – Jacksonville Jaguars
Matt’s Pick – Los Angeles Raiders
Minnesota Vikings @ Los Angeles Chargers
Matt’s Pick – Minnesota Vikings
I guess the song would be more fitting if the game was in Minnesota. At this point in the year I care more for other things.
Fleet’s Pick – Minnesota Vikings
Los Angeles Rams @ Dallas Cowboys
Fleet – Last 3 weeks I have picked the Cowboys, assuming the players on their team might try to win a game. Bad coaching aside you would think maybe someone would just use their talent to win a game. No? Cool.
Fleet’s Pick – Los Angeles Rams
Matt’s Pick – Los Angeles Rams
Atlanta Falcons @ San Francisco 49ers
Matt – Pretty sure Atlanta won the NFC like, last year. How the mighty have fallen smh something something et cetera. Now, there’s a new team in town!
Matt’s Pick – San Francisco 49ers
Fleet – Kyle Shanahan revenge game! Look out Falcons, his team is better than yours. He somehow got the always mediocre Matt Ryan an MVP award, proving he’s a better coach than yours. Kinda feel like he’s already gotten his revenge, actually. Poor Atlanta. That SB loss is so much worse than anyone could have ever predicted, and it looked bad at the time.
Fleet’s Pick – San Francisco 49ers
Buffalo Bills @ Pittsburgh Steelers
Fleet – Bills win! Fuck Pittsburgh!
Fleet’s Pick – Buffalo Bills
Matt’s Pick – Buffalo Bills
Indianapolis Colts @ New Orleans Saints
Matt’s Pick – New Orleans Saints
Fleet – Michael Thomas could beat Marvin Harrison’s season season reception record. Let us hope he does, because Marvin Harrison is a crazy individual and although he was good at football, his recent years have had some google-able activity.
Fleet’s Pick – New Orleans Saints
