Friends, today is my 11th wedding anniversary, so it's just "quick picks" this week.
KC over SF
Larry Johnson and the KC home field advantage too much for young but promising Niners.
Houston over Miami
Anyone else want to pick Daunte Culpepper on the road? Me neither, even at the city that didn't pick Reggie Bush.
Dallas over Tennessee
T.O. circus or not, the Cowboys are just better than the Titans.
Indy over NY Jets
All the haters want to talk about is how "Jax punched Indy in the mouth." Yeah, but who won the game, haters? Who was the last man standing, haters? Peyton Manning, haters.
Minnesota over Buffalo
Simple math: the Vikings are better than the Jets, and the Jets beat Buffalo in their place.
San Diego over Baltimore
In a matchup of tough defenses, San Diego's offense is vastly superior.
Carolina over New Orleans
Carolina's getting back on track, and N.O.'s due for a big emotional letdown after their great performance Monday night.
Atlanta over Arizona
Kurt Warner's last stand.
St. Louis over Detroit
Because I'm a homer--sue me.
Cleveland over Oakland
Because Oakland's going 0-16 this season.
Jacksonville over Washington
The Jags will take out some of their Colts-inspired anger management issues out on the Skins this week.
Cincinnati over New England
Old boss, meet the new boss.
Seattle over Chicago
I'm picking the champs until somebody beats them. Plus, Seattle's much better than Minnesota, who almost (and should have) beat the Bears last week.
Philly over Green Bay
Despite my preseason picks, I like Philly to win the NFC East.
Last week: 8-6
