Here we are... the crucial part of the season.
By the way, I have no idea what you have to do to get suspended. If WR Andre Johnson and Cortland Finnegan (a Harry Potter villain? A Brit?) can rip off their helmets and have a full out fight in the middle of a game and STILL not get suspended... well, there's really nothing you can do to get suspended then. Now, if you break laws, that will still get you suspended.
Anyways, For the last 4 weeks, I've applied the insane "bounce-back theory," to some very positive results. Last week I would have gone 13-3 if CAR made that kick. I'm staying the course, even if it makes no sense.
Manwich Matchup of the Week #1
Pitt @ Baltimore- Baltimore won the 1st game by 3 in Pitt. The Steelers should return the favor.
Manwich Matchup of the Week #2
Jets @ NE - The Jets won the 1st game. The Pats will win the 2nd game.
Upset of the Week #1
ATL @ Tampa - Tampa lost a close game to Baltimore last week. ATL had an epic win over GB, so it would be only fitting that ATL lose this week now that the press has anointed them the favorites in the NFC.
Upset of the Week #2
Buff @ Minny- Minny got a rare victory last week. Meaning, it's time to lose again!
Opening Round Playoff Game #13
Teams that have been eliminated: Cleveland, St. Louis, Oakland, Detroit, Buffalo, Kansas City, San Fran, Denver, Arizona, Carolina, Tennessee, Washington
Dallas @ Indy - Look. If Indy can't win this game, I'm not sure if they are going to survive their division. Plus, Indy has lost two games in a row, so its time to bounce back.
Hou@ Philly- Pick: Philly
Cleve@ Miami - Wow. It really is Lebron vs. Cleveland week. Even the Dolphins and Browns are getting in on the action. I think CLE's win last week was too lucky... so they lose this week.
Jack @ Tenn - Pick: Jack (Tenn still has no QB)
Denver @ KC- KC will win by 30. Then Denver's coach can return the favor and not shake KC's coach hand.
Wash @ Giants- Pick: Giants
Chicago @ Detroit - Revenge is sweet... but the Lions can't exact revenge for their week 1 loss (where the refs blew the call) because Detroit is down to QB #3 Drew Stanton.
SF @ GB- Classic bounceback theory game... the Packers lost a close game last week and the 49ers have won a bunch of late.
NO @ Cincy- Pick: NO (I don't know when the Bungals are winning a game again)
Oak @ SD- Pick: SD
CAR @ Seattle- Pick: Seattle
St. Louis @ Arizona- Pick: St. Louis (they lost their opener to the Cardinals, so they should be able to bounce back now that Sam Bradford is more seasoned).
Last Week: 12-4 (wow)
Manwich: 9-3 (ATL beat GB)
Upset of the Week: 9-10 (SD beat Indy; CAR missed the kick against CLE)
