BUFFALO, NY – After another successful 2-1 week picking our NFL Picks For Rugby Heads, my overall record is up to 13-12. Despite I’m still looking for that first 3-0 weekend, and maybe this is the one? In order for that to happen I need my Buffalo Bills to pull out an upset today. Enjoy!
Buffalo Bills (3-4) at Houston Texans (6-1): UPSET ALERT! Look, I understand that most people in the world think the Buffalo Bills suck. But… If the Bills played two more full consistent 60-minute games of football this year, one against the New England Patriots and the other against the Tennessee Titans, this team is 5-2. The Bills have the pieces to be a playoff team and if they can rely on their top-notch run game and play the way this front four on defense is suppose to, they might just pull off the upset.
My Prediction: 30-24 Bills
Carolina Panthers (1-6) at Washington Redskins (3-5): This is the battle between rookie sensations; last year’s Cam Newton and this year’s Robert Griffin III. Newton’s Panthers are really struggling and quite frankly, Cam doesn’t look that good. I’ve always had my doubts about his leadership capabilities and this game is where he needs to prove me wrong.
My Prediction: 28-10 Redskins
Philadelphia Eagles (3-4) at New Orleans Saints (2-5): Whichever team wins this game makes the playoffs this season. Yup, I said it. Eagles quarterback Michael Vick needs to take command of the offense again and what better match-up then against a pathetic Saint’s D? That said, the Eagles’ D really needs to come to play today, because if they don’t Saints QB Drew Brees will have a field day.
My Prediction: 45-31 Eagles
