Cinci
Detroit
Atlanta
Denver

I think I want Detroit to win more than I can see them winning, but I'll still pick 'em.

With the way Big Ben is banged up (now supposedly even worse) and expected to start, I can see the Denver match up being a repeat of the 49ers game from a few weeks ago. Good defense, low scoring with Tebow having just enough muster to pull it off.

As much as I love football this weekend is one that never really gets me too jazzed. Not sure why as I get to see 4 games. But I would like to see:

Pitt in a 50-0 zip game
NO in a 50-0 zip game
And the Giants. I just can't get excited for Houston and Cincy at all glad it is the first one on Saturday seems even the networks think it is a throwaway game. Sorry if you are fans of the teams.

Probably because you still have some marginal teams playing, although sometimes they pull off the shocker (like Seattle last year). To me the best NFL weekend (besides opening week) is the 2nd round of the playoffs. I'm already looking forward to: Saints-Niners and either Steelers-Pats II or Steelers-Ravens III. Of course now watch the Saints and Steelers go down.

Everyone in New England is rooting for Cincy. Everyone in Baltimore is rooting for Houston.

I guess there's an outside chance Denver comes through with a win but I think it's much more likely that Cincy beats Houston.

Everybody in New England and Baltimore and everywhere else decent and wholesome are rooting for Denver.

According to the pick trends of the "experts" participating in the Survivor Pool, the odds for this weekend's games appear to be:

Houston 7:8 (pretty much a dead heat at this point)
New Orleans 1:9
NY Giants 1:2
Pittsburgh 1:17

For all the pundits that are pointing out how the Bengals have only beaten two teams over .500, I wonder how many realize that the Patriots haven't beaten any?

Cincy, Pitts, Giants, Saints

Then Pats over Cincy, Ravens over Steelers, Saints over Niners, Green Bay over Giants

Then Ravens over Pats, Saints over Green Bay

Super Bowl: Saints over Ravens

(This will change if Roethlisberger is healthy. If he heals up then replace Ravens with Steelers)
