Bob Biscig's PicksLast week I went 11-5 which improves my record to 47-25. I know I did not submit this before the Thursday night game commenced. However, I went to a college with an honor code and on my honor I was going to pick Cincinnati to cover. It doesn't look too good for me right now. Cinci trails 20-7 in the 4th.
As much as I would love to pick Atlanta as the game of the week for the third consecutive week, I think I am going to switch things up this week. San Diego vs. Indianapolis is huge. The Colts are fighting for separation in the AFC Wild Card and the Chargers are merely looking to get back into things, absolutely needing a win. For the reasons I have stated, the fact I traded for Phil Rivers in one of my fantasy leagues and because it's the Sunday Night Game all make it a very enticing game for people to watch.
My upset special was almost correct again last week. However, It turned sour quick as the Titans were able to come back from an early deficit and still cover over the Jaguars. This week my pick is the Lions. I know, I know. I pick the Lions every week. This week is different. They are playing the Bucs at home, Culpepper finally has more than a few days of practice under his belt and he may in fact know the entire playbook finally. That being said, everyone is hoping for an undefeated Titans vs. the winless Lions for a hilarious Thanksgiving math up. My gut that's anxiously waiting for a Thanksgiving meal tells me this won't happen somehow. Whether it comes from a Jets win or a Lions win (definitely will cover at least) I'm not sure. I will guarantee though that It will happen with one of them, but my guess goes with the Lions, obviously.
Chip will bring you his picks sometime before Sunday.
