Alright, get your wallets out because here are my can't miss NFL picks for Week 9. The Rams are on a bye, so sit back and enjoy a little football for a change.
Are you really going to watch this game? Really?
The pick: Chiefs
Man, what a deal for the Packers, they get the Rams, Jaguars and Cardinals to help get their season back on track.
The pick: Packers
Lions vs. Jaguars
Detroit looks like it's rolling right now, or about to ... maybe. Doubtlessly the addition of Mike Thomas will put them into the Super Bowl; after all, Tony Softli compared Thomas to Panthers WR Steve Smith (at the 7:35 mark of the audio in that link).
The pick: Lions
The Titans probably wonder why they parted ways with Jeff Fisher.
The pick: Bears
Denver is making a case to be the second best team in the AFC, behind Houston. The Bengals were supposed to make the playoffs this year.
The pick: Broncos
Panthers vs. Redskins
If you believe in momentum, the Panthers ought to be in fine form after almost knocking off the Bears last week. The awful Redskins defense will be no match for Cam Newton.
The pick: Panthers
These aren't the same Browns from the beginning of the season, even with lame duck head coach Pat Shurmur. These aren't the same Ravens either, but the Browns are much closer to being their old selves.
The pick: Ravens
The Dolphins are pretty good now. Obviously they are since they beat the Rams.
The pick: Dolphins
Someone from the Bills might actually be crushed in this game.
The pick: Texans
The smart pick is the Seattle defense at home. I can't in good conscious make that pick.
The pick: Vikings
Tampa Bay can score points now. I wish the Rams could too.
The pick: Buccaneers
Take away Atlanta's record, and the Giants might be the best team in the NFC now.
The pick: Giants
Tony Romo has one game this season without an interception. One.
The pick: Falcons
Nnamdi isn't even playing at a league-average level right now. Andy Reid is lying about never considering benching Vick. The Eagles are a disaster ... and it's kind of funny.
The pick: Saints
