NFL Week 16 Results: Uh Oh

Here is my master list of predictions on the 2013 NFL Seasonhere is Andrew’s master list.

I’m only four games behind Andrew in prediction records! With Week 16 over will I fall too far behind him for Week 17 or will Week 17 determine it all? Read below to find out.

Green is correct; red is incorrect.

Here are my predictions:

WEEK 16

Sunday, Dec. 22

Dolphins @ Bills — 1 p.m. Dolphins 28 Bills 16
Saints @ Panthers — 1 p.m. Saints 31 Panthers 14
Cowboys @ Redskins — 1 p.m. Cowboys 30 Redskins 22
Buccaneers @ Rams — 1 p.m. Rams 27 Buccaneers 20
Bears @ Eagles — 1 p.m. Eagles 17 Bears 13
Browns @ Jets — 1 p.m. Browns 27 Jets 12
Colts @ Chiefs — 1 p.m. Chiefs 33 Colts 24
Vikings @ Bengals — 1 p.m. Bengals 20 Vikings 16
Broncos @ Texans — 1 p.m. Texans 23 Broncos 14
Titans @ Jaguars — 1 p.m. Jaguars 15 Titans 9
Cardinals @ Seahawks — 1 p.m. Seahawks 27 Cardinals 14
Giants @ Lions — 4:05 p.m.  Lions 43 Giants 30
Raiders @ Chargers — 4:25 p.m. Chargers 20 Raiders 15
Steelers @ Packers — 4:25 p.m. Packers 28 Steelers 21
Patriots @ Ravens — 8:30 p.m. Patriots 24 Ravens 17

Monday, Dec. 23

Falcons @ 49ers — 8:40 p.m. 49ers 35 Falcons 21

Week 16 Record: 7 – 9

Season Record: 140 – 100

Well. Well. Well. Looks like I over/underestimated several teams when forecasting the year. I thought the Broncos would begin to start resting their starters, which would lead the Texans to winning that game – the Texans have the talent, but no QB or any real coaching to bring out that talent. I believed in my Ohio brothers – the Browns – too much before the year. Next year if I do this I will not be sympathetic and be caught up in their decent defense.  The Lions? There’s nothing to say. Let’s go to Andrew’s predictions and hope he did equally as bad or somehow worse.

Here are Andrew’s predictions:

WEEK 16

Sunday, Dec. 22

Dolphins @ Bills — 1 p.m.
Saints @ Panthers — 1 p.m.
Cowboys @ Redskins — 1 p.m.
Buccaneers @ Rams — 1 p.m.
Bears @ Eagles — 1 p.m.
Browns @ Jets — 1 p.m.
Colts @ Chiefs — 1 p.m.
Vikings @ Bengals — 1 p.m.
Broncos @ Texans — 1 p.m.
Titans @ Jaguars — 1 p.m.
Cardinals @ Seahawks — 1 p.m.
Giants @ Lions — 4:05 p.m.
Raiders @ Chargers — 4:25 p.m.
Steelers @ Packers — 4:25 p.m.
Patriots @ Ravens — 8:30 p.m.

Monday, Dec. 23

Falcons @ 49ers — 8:40 p.m.

Week 16 Record: 11 – 5

Season Record: 148 – 94

Hmm, looks like I messed up the records a week or so ago because the season record totals don’t match. I’ll be looking into that, but it appears that Andrew will win it regardless because our last picks lack variety anyhow. Congrats.

Apologies on this taking so long to put up.

Green is correctred is incorrect.

Packers @ Cowboys — 4:25 p.m. Packers 27 Cowboys 20
Bengals @ Steelers — 8:30 p.m. Bengals 31 Steelers 19

(Boo hiss at the Steelers)

Monday, Dec. 16

Ravens @ Lions — Mon., 8:40 p.m. Ravens 23 Lions 17

Week 15 Record: 10 – 6

Season Record: 133 – 91

10-6 isn’t a terrible record for a week, but will it be enough to gain even the slightest ground on Andrew? I sure hope so; the season has been his, though. Let’s look at it.

Week 15 Record: 8-8

Season Record: 137 – 89

Gained two games! Count it! Woo-hoo! Only four games back now. Just two weeks left to go… I could probably look ahead to see if there’s a chance to even win this bet, but I’ll just wait it out to be surprised.

Thanks for reading.

There you have it, folks.

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

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!

Monday, Nov. 4

Bears @ Packers – 8:40 p.m.

Week 9 Record: 9-4

Season Record: 82-51

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!

 

NFL Week 8 Results: Are Things Starting To Look Up?

Here is my master list of predictions on the 2013 NFL Seasonhere is Andrew’s master list.

Compared to my last few weeks of predictions, this week is MUCH better. It’s not that impressive and I am likely still several games behind Andrew, but is this the beginning of a comeback? Or is it just me treading water to stay semi-relevant with his picks? Let’s TAKE A GANDER!

So, Dez Bryant, who's the better wide receiver? (Source: Wikipedia)

Quick Look At NFL Week 8 Predictions

Here is my master list of predictions on the 2013 NFL Seasonhere is Andrew’s master list.

Since you likely don’t want to sift through the master list of predictions, I have posted them below! Let us know what you think of them, but remember that these predictions were made before the season began. Andrew and my prediction records aren’t the prettiest (well mine aren’t especially pretty), but we’re just under the ‘experts’ predicting games every week at ESPN. Andrew is actually tied with the ESPN Fan Pick’em, and has a better record than two of these ‘experts.’ Bravo.

Andrew’s record before Week 8: 65-42

We’re both going to be 0-1 after tonight, I guarantee it.

My predictions are falling faster than an avalanche this week; at least it was just a few minor snowfalls the previous weeks, but this week may be the beginning of the end. Let’s check’er out, shall we?

Remember green is correct; red is incorrect.

Teams on their ‘Bye’ Week: New Orleans Saints, Oakland Raiders

WEEK 7

Thursday, Oct. 17

Seahawks @ Cardinals — 8:25 p.m. Cardinals 20 Seahawks 16

This is my fault for thinking Carson Palmer would actually be semi-good this year with Larry Fitzgerald.

Sunday, Oct. 20

Buccaneers @ Falcons — 1 p.m. Falcons 27 Buccaneers 13
Bears @ Redskins — 1 p.m. Redskins 35 Bears 21
Cowboys @ Eagles — 1 p.m. Eagles 31 Cowboys 28

Really, New England? Really?

Bills @ Dolphins — 1 p.m. Dolphins 17 Bills 13
Rams @ Panthers — 1 p.m. Panthers 41 Rams 38
Bengals @ Lions — 1 p.m. Bengals 35 Lions 27

Monday, Oct. 21

Vikings @ Giants — 8:40 p.m. Vikings 20 Giants 13

Week 7 Record: 6-9

Season Record: 57-50

This is getting ugly fast, but this week technically wasn’t as bad as last week. I hope Andrew does at least as equally terrible, but it’s not likely at all by just glancing at his predictions. I’m still better than most ESPN analysts that predict the games a few days before they are played, not before the season begins.

My record keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’ compared to Andrew’s. I likely will lose the bet unless teams start to become aware of my predictions and adhere to them. Until next week my friends; well, until this Thursday, actually.
