Second half Underway: Week 9 Game Picks

I have yet to post my first half awards, but they will hopefully be up within the next day or so. Until then, enjoy me Week 9 preview and predictions. At the end I have added how I have fared with my game picks this season, including a week-to-week breakdown.

Sunday Nov. 6

Bills over Jets...I expect New York's struggles to continue against East rival Buffalo. Rex has yet to back up his big talk.

Cowboys over Seahawks...Tony Romo looks to bounce back from the embarrassment against Philly.

Texans over Browns...I'm already starting to question why I thought Cleveland had found their franchise quarterback in Colt McCoy.

Falcons over Colts...Indy's woes will continue against Atlanta, keeping them in perfect position for the first pick in 2012's draft.

Chiefs over Dolphins...the 'Fins are still alive and well in the race for the No. 1 picks, as well.
Bucs over Saints...if we learned anything last week, it's that New Orleans has weaknesses and are more than beatable if they are exposed.

Niners over Skins...Washington's great start has already been replaced by mediocre quarterback play. Harbaugh's Niners continue to storm through its schedule.

Raiders over Broncos...another off-day for Tebow in the making against Rolando McClain, Richard Seymour and the Raiders?

Bengals over Titans...Rookie Andy Dalton and his Cincy squad have quietly put up quite the fight in the North, and should improve on that record against Hasselbeck's Titans.

Rams over Cardinals...coming off a disgusting second half performance against Baltimore, the Cards will have to stop a hot Steven Jackson and St. Louis offense.

Patriots over Giants...being without Ahmad Bradshaw and Hakeem Nicks will be too much for Eli Manning's Giants against New England.

Packers over Chargers...Aaron Rodgers' MVP season likely wont sputter in San Diego one bit.

Ravens over Steelers...Baltimore's defense has been on a tear, and Pittsburgh will likely be without its three star LBs (Harrison, Woodley and Farrior). Too much to overcome against this Baltimore team, I believe.
Monday Nov. 7

Eagles over Bears...both teams have struggled to perform on a consistent basis, week-in and week-out. But if Cutler can limit the mistakes and use Matt Forte properly they can expose Philly's D.

Bye weeks: Panthers, Lions, Jaguars, Falcons
