Ok folks here is next weeks games, accompanied by the spread, and unfortunately my opinion is also tagging along. I am hoping AAAinthebeltway comes in with commentary, as i appreciate his opinion more than anyone on this board when it comes to football. Jets @ Bengals -2.5 Ravens @ Patriots -3.5 Packers @ Arizona -1 Eagles @ Dallas -4 Game 1, Jets Bengals... Spread Bengals -2.5 In this game I am pretty sure the Jets will roll, especially with last weeks game. Rex Ryan is a beast, as evidenced by the fact that the jets are the number 1 defense in football, 1 year after he left the Ravens(who are now reeling on defense after being number 2 last year) I can not see a beat up Bengals squad beating the Jets. Realistically i think there is only so much a persons heart can take in a season, RIP Chris Henry, sorry for the rest of the team, I can not see the Bengals winning this. Pick: Jets +2.5 Game 2, Ravens Patriots... Spread Patriots -3.5 This game will come down to defense, Ravens can still pull it off when necessary, Pats can not. Bellicheck proved he wants nothing to do with the faulty PATS defense when he decided to go for it on his own 20 on 4th and 1 against Peyton. I fully expect the Ravens to defeat the Patriots at home in this game, Thats right home gamers I am betting against Brady. My decision in this game came down to the fact that the ravens probably have the best rushing attack in football, combined with what AT TIMES represents a prolific defense. These 2 variables compiled with the fact that the pats are missing welker makes this a Raven win. Pick: Ravens +3.5 Game 3, Packers Cards... Spread Arizona -1 Once again my pick is the road team, Greenbay has been tearing the league apart after a pedestrian start to the season, they are 7-1 in the last 8 weeks, their only loss was to my Steelers, and realistically they should have won that game. Rodgers is firing on all cylinders, and they have figured out a way to include Ryan Grant into the offense as of late, which will be crucial down the stretch playing on a cold field. I cant see Warrener and the inconsistent Cards offense beating GB even when Arizona is at home. Pick: Green Bay +1 Game 4, Philly Dallas.... Spread Dallas -4 Dallas will win this game hands down, Romo has something to prove, and thus far this season he has shown that he is pissed off about this December bullshit which frequents the airwaves about him, he also has a new partner in town in Miles Austin that and the fact that he has a violent runner in Marion Barber and this will end up in a Dallas win. The Eagles are a big play team, but they have no defense. I actually thought Demarcus Ware should have won the MVP over Harrison last year and im a Steeler fan, look for Demarcus to be a game changer this year against Philly Pick: Dallas -4 Anyways good luck to everyone in the playoffs, since my steelers are out i am allowed to be impartial.... Here is to hoping AAAinthebeltway will add his opinion to this thread. Cheers!!!
