16. Atlanta Falcons (LW: 9)
I picked them to win the Super Bowl. Do Super Bowl winners lose 13-10 to the Bucs?
15. New York Giants (LW: 18)
If they follow up a win in Philly with a loss in Phoenix no one in the world will be surprised.
14. Dallas Cowboys (LW: 16)
They’ll of course need better receiver play. And to figure out how to snap the ball.
13. Philadelphia Eagles (LW: 6)
They can’t win without Michael Vick. But you already knew that.
12. Oakland Raiders (LW: 17)
A visit from the Pats follows last week’s visit from the Jets. At least they don’t have a tough schedule.
11. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (LW: 14)
With Indy headed to town for Monday Night Football, the Bucs get the earliest bye week in the NFL.
10. Pittsburgh Steelers (LW: 11)
If you’ve ever blocked anything, you might be able to start on their O-Line.
9. New York Jets (LW: 5)
They’re good enough to win at M&T Bank Stadium Saturday night. I just hope they don’t.
8. Houston Texans (LW: 4)
The Saints are good. I wouldn’t worry too much.
7. Buffalo Bills (LW: 12)
With the Bengals next, I assume we’ll be looking at a 4-0 team. How is that possible?
6. San Diego Chargers (LW: 6)
I don’t really know what to make of them only barely getting past the Chiefs. I’ll just sit on this for a week.
5. Baltimore Ravens (LW: 8)
I prefer the “good” Ravens to the “bad” Ravens.
4. Detroit Lions (LW: 7)
I wish my team had Calvin Johnson.
3. New England Patriots (LW: 2)
I doubt Tom Brady throws four interceptions too many times.
2. New Orleans Saints (LW: 3)
They’re capable of winning just about every game by the same 40-33 score.
1. Green Bay Packers (LW: 1)
The earth is also round.
