My picks to win are in bold.
Note: The Thursday night game between the Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers has been excluded.
New York Giants @ San Francisco 49ers
Tough game but Giants offense will be the difference.
New Orleans Saints @ Atlanta Falcons
Saints struggle on the road and Falcons have finally gone back to the run.
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cincinnati Bengals
Andy Dalton has played well, but he hasn’t faced a defense like the Steelers yet.
St. Louis Rams @ Cleveland Browns
Browns are horrendous on offense. Steven Jackson and Brandon Lloyd should have huge games.
Buffalo Bills @ Dallas Cowboys
Cowboys are without Miles Austin, and Bills want revenge after suffering a beatdown at home.
Jacksonville Jaguars @ Indianapolis Colts
MJD should run for miles.
Denver Broncos @ Kansas City Chiefs
Tebow will find a way to get the dubb.
Washington Redskins @ Miami Dolphins
Dolphins aren’t as bad as their record says they are.
Arizona Cardinals @ Philadelphia Eagles
No DeSean Jackson but this is a must win.
Houston Texans @ Tampa Bay Bucs
Gerald McCoy is out for the season. Not good against the league’s best rushing attack.
Tennessee Titans @ Carolina Panthers
Chris Johnson has been nonexistent.
Baltimore Ravens @ Seattle Seahawks
Seahawks commit too many turnovers.
Detroit Lions @ Chicago Bears
Bears are playing tremendously on both sides of the ball.
New England Patriots @ New York Jets
Tom Brady is 0-2 on the road against Rex Ryan’s Jets.
Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers
Should be a shootout, but Vikings can’t hang with Rodgers and co.
*Last Week: 8-6
The New York Football Giants signed veteran wide-out Brandon Stokley earlier today to compete for the slot receiver position with Victor Cruz and Domenik Hixon. Stokley, 35, spent last season with the Seahawks where he played in 11 games. In those 11 games Stokley grabbed 31 balls for 354 yards. Those aren’t numbers to get excited about if you’re a Giants fan but respectable for an aging journeyman such as Stokley. As a Giants fan, my first reaction to this news was Read more…
The Eagles have clearly made the biggest splash this off-season, signing shut down cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha along with countless others. The self-proclaimed “dream team” has a ton of talent and an abundance of weapons on offense as well as a trio of top-level corners. The Eagles are all in for the Super Bowl, and it looks like they’ll be one of the favorites going into the season.
Key Arrivals – Nnamdi Asomugha, Cullen Jenkins, Ryan Harris, Vince Young, DRC, Jason Babin, Ronnie Brown, Steve Smith
Key Departures – Brodrick Bunkley, David Akers, Stewart Bradley, Quintin Mikell, Ernie Sims, Sav Rocca
Prediction – 12-4/First in NFC East Read more…
With NFL free agency set to begin, I’m going to round out the New York football teams’ free agent priorities by highlighting the New York Giants (sorry Buffalo fans, you’ll get what’s due in the near future…maybe). The Giants are one of seven teams currently above the projected $120 million salary cap in effect this season. This makes it even more crucial for them to re-sign their own free agents and avoid getting into a bidding war with other “cap friendly” teams like the Cincinnati Bengals who have close to $40 million to spend. The Giants are looking to get back into the playoff picture after missing out last season as they were unable to capitalize on yet another strong start on their way to a 10-6 record. The G-Men have some major free agents that absolutely need to be re-signed, but it’s going to take some creative accounting by General Manager Jerry Reese in order to fill their voids. With all that being said, here’s my top five Giants free agent priorities: Read more…
Former Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich has announced via twitter that he has signed as an undrafted free agent with the New York Football Giants. Herzlich had a dominating 2008 season with the Eagles on his way to being named the ACC Defensive Player of the Year. The feared linebacker missed all of the 2009 season due to Read more…
