NFL PICKS WEEK NINE 2016

Before I get to the picks I'd like to rant. This is the worst season of football I can recall. The games have been a bore. Prime time games have been the worst. It has been so bad I forgot to get a pick for last Thursday's game. I'm winless in Fantasy Football. My watering hole closed and the new one has a great layout, but is just blah blah blah. Since the Eagles are on locally, I think I'll just watch them on the porch and enjoy a cigar. 

Me an John both went 8-5 last week, but I've got a lot of ground to cover to avoid another payout. Our season records are 55-61-4  and  64-52-4.

Here are this weeks' picks: 

1.) Kansas City Chiefs  (5-2)  at Home   (-7.5)   vs. Jacksonville Jaguars   (2-5)

Nick Foles starts at QB and that'll be enough.

PICK: CHIEFS

2.) Minnesota Vikings  (5-2)   at Home   (-6)   vs. Detroit Lions  (4-4)

Too many points.

LIONS TO COVER

3.) New York Giants  (4-3)  at Home  (-2.5)   vs. Philadelphia  Eagles  (4-3)

The Eagles might want to stretch the field a bit today, but I expect them to bounce back.

PICK: EAGLES

4.) Dallas Cowboys  (6-1)   (-7)   vs.   Cleveland Browns  (0-8)

Why only seven?

PICK: COWBOYS

5.) Miami Dolphins (3-4)   At Home  (-4)   vs.  New York Jets  (3-5)

Too many points.

PICK: JETS

6.) Pittsburgh Steelers (4-3)   (-1.5)   at  Baltimore Ravens  (3-4)

Big Ben is back.

PICK: STEELERS

7.) New Orleans Saints  (3-4)   (-4)   at  San Francisco  49ers   (1-6)

Chip Kelly belongs in college.

PICK: SAINTS

8.) Carolina Panthers  (2-5)   (-3)   at  Los Angeles  Rams  (3-4)

Case Keenum  vs.  Cam Newton?

PICK: PANTHERS

9.) Green Bay Packers   (4-3)   at  Home  (-7)  vs.  Indianapolis Colts  (3-5)

I really hate the points.

PICK: COLTS TO COVER

10.) San Diego Chargers  (3-4)   at Home  (-4.5)   vs.  Tennessee Titans  (4-4)

Too many points again.

PICK: TITANS TO COVER

11.) Oakland  Raiders  (6-2)    at  home   (-1)   vs.  Denver Broncos   (6-2)

Do I have this right? An Oakland Raider team with six wins on National Television a home favorite against the Super Bowl Champs? Yup.

PICK: RAIDERS

12.) Seattle Seahawks  (4-2-1)  at Home  (-7)   vs. Buffalo Bills  (4-4)

PICK: SEAHAWKS
