This week is a short week with only 13 games.

Cleveland, Green Bay, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Minnesota, and New England all have byes this week.

I do not think that there is going to be quite so much of a home field advantage this week. I think that Tennessee will come out with their first win, and that both of the evening games will be blow outs. Matt Leinart is not going to be able to do much to carve up Chicago’s defense, and Oakland will be looking up and seeing bottom by the second quarter on Sunday night.

  1. Buffalo at Detroit
  2. Carolina at Baltimore
  3. Cincinnati at Tampa Bay
  4. Houston at Dallas
  5. N.Y. Giants at Atlanta
  6. Philadelphia at New Orleans
  7. Seattle at St. Louis
  8. Tennessee at Washington
  9. Kansas City at Pittsburgh
  10. Miami at N.Y. Jets
  11. San Diego at San Francisco
  12. Oakland at Denver
  13. Chicago at Arizona

My picks are underlined. Winning teams are emphasized. Incorrect picks are crossed out.

I regressed again this week, and only got 7 picks correct. That is still more than I got wrong, though, since there was only 13 games. That’s better than even, if barely, at 54%. My total for the season is now 58 correct picks out of 87 total games. I am averaging 2 correct picks for every incorrect pick; I need to start doing better.

So far, week 2 brought me the most correct picks (13 of 16), but week 5 got me the best percentage at 85% (12 of 14). Week 3 is still my worst showing, where I only got half of the picks correct. Coincidentally, I had the same number of correct picks this week.
