NFL Picks For Rugby Fans

I finally got back to my winning ways last weekend after pulling out a record of 2-1. My record has improved from an embarrassing 4-14, to a slightly less embarrassing 6-15. Time to keep these wins coming!

If Thad Lewis is starting at QB for the Bills this weekend, it will make the upset a much easier task than having Jeff Tuel at the helm.

Kansas City Chiefs (8-0) at Buffalo Bills (3-5): Did you really think that the Chiefs would go a perfect 16-0 through the regular season? They had to lose sometime right? And that sometime is Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

Sure the Chiefs have a perfect record and the the Bills are under .500, but who have they beat? The Cowboys. The Chiefs’ opponents this season currently have a combined record of 20-41. So… yeah. And to top it off, in Buffalo’s two losses at home this season, they’ve been by a combined 5 points. If the Bills can limit turning over the ball and make a few big plays on offense they can win this game. Buffalo has the defense to keep this one close and give the Bills a chance. Time to shock the world Buffalo! Bills: 24-17

New Orleans Saints (6-1) at New York Jets (4-4): Can the Saints show their dominance and blow out the measly Jets on the road? Or will Rex Ryan and his boys pull off another shocking upset? On paper this game has the making of a blowout in favor of the Saints, but you never know, Geno Smith could come to play Sunday and the Jets could steal one.

Where you at Ray Rice!?!

However, I’m betting that the Saints put on an offensive clinic. The Jets pass defense isn’t all that great, which works out perfectly for New Orleans. This could get out of hand really fast if Geno turns the ball over a lot, like he did last week. Saints: 37-21

Baltimore Ravens (3-4) at Cleveland Browns (3-5): Who would have thought in August that these two teams would have similar records in November? Not me, that’s for sure. However, the difference between these two teams is that one has a quarterback and the other doesn’t; the Ravens.

Baltimore is fresh off a Super Bowl Championship and knows how to win. This Browns team… not so much. Yes, the Baltimore defense has some new names on it but that doesn’t mean that they’re that much worse. Ravens running back  Ray Rice needs to turn it up a few notches so Joe Flacco doesn’t feel like he has to win games all by himself. This game will be a close one, but I like B’more. Ravens: 28-16
