Hi everyone! Today I want to go over the picks I got right and wrong from last week! I predicted that the Rams would beat the Giants 31-13, but the final score was 38-11 Rams over the Giants. I predicted that the Chiefs would beat the Football team 45-24, but the final score was 31-13 Chiefs over the Football team. I predicted that the Packers would beat the Bears 25-17, but the final score was 24-14 Packers over the Bears. That prediction was so close! I almost got the exact prediction correct!! I predicted that the Bengals would beat the Lions 26-19, but the final score was 34-11 Bengals over the Lions. I predicted that the Cowboys would beat the Patriots 34-17, but the final score was 35-29 Cowboys over the Patriots in overtime. The Cowboys scored a game-winning touchdown by quarterback Dak Prescott throwing to the wide receiver Cee Dee Lamb. I predicted that the Steelers would beat the Seahawks 30-17, but the final score was 23-20 Steelers over the Seahawks in overtime. The Steelers kicked a game-winning field goal after the Seahawks backup quarterback Geno Smith fumbled the ball. That was the worse time to fumble the ball and a perfect time for the Steelers defense including a defensive lineman TJ Watt to force the fumble. I predicted that the Titans would beat the Bills 34-26, but the final score was 34-31 Titans over the Bills in a very close game. The Bills probably should have kicked the field goal, but they decided not to because they do not want to go to overtime.
I predicted that the Panthers would beat the Vikings 24-20, but the final score was 34-28 Vikings over the Panthers in overtime. The Vikings scored a game-winning touchdown to win the game in overtime. I predicted that the Chargers would beat the Ravens 30-27 in a close game, but the final score was 34-6 Ravens over the Chargers in a blowout. I was not expecting this to be a blowout. The Chargers offense just did not look good, the Ravens defense looked really well and their offense. I predicted that the Browns would beat the Cardinals 26-23, but the final score was 37-14 Cardinals over the Browns. The Cardinals came out to play despite some of their injuries, some players tested positive for Covid including Chandler Jones and the head coach Kliff Kingsbury. The Cardinals found a way to come out with the win. That’s what good teams do! The Cardinals offense played pretty good when Kyler Murray threw 4 touchdowns and no interceptions. Two to D-hop, one to Christian Kirk and one to AJ Green. The Cardinals defense played well too after they gave up a hail mary before the end of the half. Cardinals remain undefeated 6-0! I predicted that the Broncos would beat the Raiders 23-13, but the final score was 34-24 Raiders over the Broncos.
So based off my predictions, I have gotten 7 out of 11 picks correct! Now, let’s get started, shall we?! The first game I will predict is the Chiefs @Titans game. I think this is going to be a really good game. Both of these teams are coming off with their wins last week. I think I am going to give the slight edge to the Titans over the Chiefs 36-30 because I just think that the Chiefs defense keeps struggling to stop teams. When the defense can’t stop them, the offense can’t help you win games. So, you must rest your defense if you are the Chiefs offense because if you are not scoring touchdowns and running down the clock, then that spells trouble for you on defense because they have been on the field for too long. The next game I will predict is the Football Team @Packers game. I highly expect the Packers to come out with a big win over the Football team 45-17. The next game I will predict is the Bengals @Ravens game, the divisional rivalries. I think this is going to be a great game. I think the Ravens are a bit better than the Bengals and will beat their rivalry 27-24. The next game I will predict is the Eagles @Raiders game. I think the Raiders will come away with the win over the Eagles 30-17. The next game I will predict is the Lions @Rams game. This is an easy win for the Rams over the Lions 45-16. The next game I will predict is the Bears @Buccaneers game. I think the Bucs will be hard for the Bears to beat and win so they will lose to the Bucs 29-17. The next game I will predict is the Texans @Cardinals game. The Cardinals are going to have a tight end Zach Ertz play tomorrow to help out the Cardinals offense and Kyler Murray in his debut and a defensive lineman Chandler Jones is going to be returning after he missed a game last week. I am pretty comfortable that the Cardinals can beat the Texans cleanly 41-24. The question though might be can this be a trap game? The answer is most likely no because the Cardinals are not going to let it happen unless they shoot themselves in the foot somehow. They can’t do that against a losing record team. I am going to be embarrassed if the Cardinals lose this game tomorrow, but again I am pretty confident in the Cardinals going 7-0 and remain undefeated. The next game I will predict is the Colts @49ers game on Sunday Night Football. I think this might actually be a great game. I think the 49ers might be able to come away with the win because they are coming off the bye week and their players might be rested and they might be a little heathier than they were last time. The final score I will say is 26-23 49ers over the Colts. The last game I will predict is the Saints @Seahawks game. I think the Saints may actually pull off an upset win over the Seahawks 27-20. The Seahawks offense is struggling a little bit and their defense is not looking great either even with Jamal Adams a defensive back. I think the Seahawks might just struggle until Russell Wilson comes back.
