Staff Picks

The Staff are in total agreement on 9 games this week. The writers are split down the middle on the result of Tennessee vs Arizona, Houston vs Jacksonville, Denver vs New York Giants. Those games are a toss up.

Matt is the lone writer to predict the Chargers will beat Washington and the Colts will beat the Seahawks. Marcus meanwhile is the only writer who likes Cincinnati over Minnesota and deep breath Baltimore over Las Vegas...

Boo this man.

Looking forward to seeing who in the Fan Community has a dead eye for these games and how the writers stack up.
