NFL Week Nine Picks and Predictions: Can the Eagles Right the Ship?


Denver Broncos vs. Cincinnati Bengals

This game is in Cincinnati, so the Bengals have a good shot here. However, the way Peyton Manning is playing right now, and what the Broncos defense has done in the last six quarters, it’s hard to bet against Denver.

PICK:  BRONCOS

 

Baltimore Ravens vs. Cleveland Browns

The Browns have a little streak going here of playing decent football, and they are playing a beaten up Ravens team. BUT, the Ravens are still a good team. I think they rebound against Cleveland.

PICK: RAVENS

 

Arizona Cardinals vs. Green Bay Packers

This could be bad news for the Arizona Cardinals. That 4-0 start seems like a distant memory at this point.

PICK: PACKERS

 

Buffalo Bills vs. Houston Texans

The Texans are almost unstoppable at home, but the Bills can put up points. We just don’t know which Bills team will be showing up today or any given weekend. I still like the home team in this one.

PICK: TEXANS

 

Miami Dolphins vs. Indianapolis Colts

Tannehill vs. Luck. Who knew it would have playoff implications? These teams are both shockingly 4-3 so far this season, and playing solid football.

PICK: COLTS

 

Detroit Lions vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

I think the Lions finally get a pick-me-up game they have been waiting for. At this point, they can’t afford to overlook any team on their schedule.

PICK: LIONS

 

Chicago Bears vs. Tennessee Titans

The Bears were nearly tripped up against the Panthers last week, which was a problem. I thought at home they’d be able to handle their business. The Titans can’t decide if they want to be winners or not so far this season.

PICK: BEARS

 

Carolina Panthers vs. Washington Redskins

Cam Newton vs. Robert Griffin III is one of the more intriguing QB matchups this weekend. However, it’s clear which team is playing better ball right now.

PICK: REDSKINS

 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Oakland Raiders

Both teams are surprisingly playing well lately, and this game could make or break each of their seasons. Jon Gruden will be watching with serious intrigue.

PICK: BUCCANEERS

 

Minnesota Vikings vs. Seattle Seahawks

Two pretty inconsistent and unpredictable teams matchup in Seattle, and I really have no idea who to pick here.

PICK: VIKINGS

 

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New York Giants

This is a great matchup that should be a smashmouth battle between two title contenders.

PICK: GIANTS

 

Dallas Cowboys vs. Atlanta Falcons

Can the Falcons win them all? Can Tony Romo continue his dominance in the month of November?

PICK: COWBOYS

 

Philadelphia Eagles vs. New Orleans Saints

The Saints’ defense is incredibly bad. The Eagles’ offense is in need of revival. I think the Saints get planted further into irrelevancy.

PICK: EAGLES
