(Chicago) vs. Tampa Bay
Ok, the Bears won another one and they did it with their defense. I think the past two weeks have proven that the Bears are ready for prime time. Alex Brown dominated the defensive line and the offense did what it had to do. I would still like the offense to get more agressive but as long as they can continue to keep teams under 10 points then I'm ok.
(Cincinnati) vs. Baltimore
In the last two weeks the Bengals have scored more than 70 points. I think we can conclude that Marvin Lewis has built a winning program in Cincinnati. Next week they will go against the big boys on the block in the Pittsburgh Steelers. I'm going to with the Steelers but it will be interesting to see.
(Carolina) vs. Buffalo
Yeah, Carolina won but the past two weeks have exposed them. At one point they were looking like the team to beat in the NFC and now that team looks like Seattle. I think the Bears can be put in the class of team to beat as well. Take away Steve Smith and the Panthers offense looks tired. Why they can't run the ball is beyond me.
49ers vs. (Tennessee)
It didn't look good for the Titans early on but then the 49ers did what the 49ers do - committ penalties, poor execution and eventually lose the game. I didn't have much interest in the game. It's a throw away.
New England vs. (Kansas City)
Trent Green had a hell of a game. I sat him on the bench in my fantasy team hoping that Matt Hasselbeck will deliver for me. Tom Brady looked good and the Cheifs looked as though they would try to give the game away. But Tom Brady was intercepted and that put an end to the run. I still don't like the Cheifs to do anything in the playoffs.
There are some games still going on and it looks as though the Chargers and Redskins are going to go into OT. So, lets take a look at the picks so far.
Seattle vs. (Giants)
I really lucked out in this game. The Seahawks did everything they could to give to give this game away. I feel kind of sorry for Feely. He had three chances to win the game and blew them all. I'm glad I picked up Jurevicius for my fantasy team. That's an added boost since I didn't realize that Mark Bulger wasn't playing today. I think the Bears can take Seattle.
Green Bay vs. (Philadelphia)
I didn't even turn to this game. Who cares?
(San Diego) vs. Washington
These two teams have been winning and losing games like this all year. Finally, the Chargers were able to pull one out in the end. They haven't looked good for a couple of weeks but the fantasy points were in full effect mode since I have Tomilson and Portis on my team.
Miami vs. (Oakland)
Outside of fantasy points, does anyone really care about this game. Two teams doing nothing and going nowhere. Boo.
Houston vs. (St. Louis)
I suspect that Houston will upset someone this year but I wasn't looking forward to it being this week. They really play good for about three quarters then they fall apart. St. Louis is an explosive team no matter who is coaching or at the quarterback helm. Too bad they aren't going anywhere this year. They are still an exciting team to watch.
Cleveland vs. (Minnesota)
Another game of little interest to me. Although, I should think about picking up Brad Johnson for my fantasy team.
(Jacksonville) vs. Arizona
Why does Arizona even bother to show up for the games? They could just mail in the loss and save themselves the travel time. I like Dennis Green but the only good thing in Arizona is the Grand Canyon. And it's really too bad that Arizona's defensive line is as wide open as their most famous tourist attraction.
Dan - E: 10-4
