NFL Week 9 Results: Are Things Looking Up?


Just by quickly glancing at my predictions I believe I did a pretty good job this weekend, but my goodness have the Jets been denting my overall season record with them winning at all. That’s because I biasedly picked them to lose every game. Why did I do that? Well the signs were all there: Bad QB situation, very few offensive weapons, a coach that appeared to be on borrowed time (Rex Ryan is in the last year of his contract!), and an organization that was just trying to get through the year without anymore butt fumbles!

Nonetheless, I should apologize to the Jets organization for doubting them, but please do me a favor and don’t win another game the rest of the year, please? Thanks!

Teams on their ‘Bye’ Week: Arizona Cardinals, Denver Broncos, Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Giants, San Francisco 49ers

Here are my predictions for this week:

Remember green is correct; red is incorrect.

WEEK 9

Thursday, Oct. 31

Bengals @ Dolphins — 8:25 p.m. Dolphins 35 Bengals 17

Man, I would’ve been totally fine with being wrong about this one!

Sunday, Nov. 3

Falcons @ Panthers — 1 p.m. Falcons 20 Panthers 13
Vikings @ Cowboys — 1 p.m. Cowboys 38 Vikings 21
Saints @ Jets — 1 p.m. Saints 45 Jets 13
Titans @ Rams — 1 p.m. Rams 27 Titans 24
Chiefs @ Bills — 1 p.m. Chiefs 20 Bills 17
Chargers @ Redskins — 1 p.m. Redskins 35 Chargers 20
Eagles @ Raiders – 4:05 p.m. Eagles 17 Raiders 14
Buccaneers @ Seahawks 4:05 pm Seahawks 30 Buccaneers 10
Ravens @ Browns — 4:25 p.m. Browns 17 Ravens 6
Steelers @ Patriots — 4:25 p.m. Patriots 30 Steelers 21
Colts @ Texans – 8:30 p.m. Texans 35 Colts 28

Monday, Nov. 4

Bears @ Packers – 8:40 p.m. Packers 35 Bears 23

This would have been correct had Aaron Rodgers not been knocked out of the game!

Week 9 Record: 8-5

Season Record: 73-60

The exact same record last week! It may not be the best, but at least it’s becoming consistent and over .500 consistent at that!

Well it appears that Andrew had a bit of foresight regarding the Falcons/Panthers , because that was the only game this weekend that we did not agree on and the Falcons look abysmal (that’ll happen when you lose your Top 2 WRs, though). Which pretty much means that I have to be correct on any picks down the stretch where we disagree to even come close to winning this thing! Here is to that!
