Week 4 NFL Predictions

So far this year has been anything but predictable. There are some huge match ups this week so we will do our best decipher them.

New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills: The Pats are coming off two last minute losses and are under .500 for the first time in almost a decade. The Bills however have rebounded with concecutive wins after a disappointing week one against the Jets. New England lost in Buffalo last year but it is hard to see Tom Brady losing three games in a row, but the Bills have a tremendous pass rush and Ryan Fitzpatrick has look solid at quarterback since week one. Can’t imagine this being a low scoring game considering both teams suspect secondaries, Pats win a close divisional matchup and move to 2-2.

San Francisco 49ers at New York Jets: The 9ers had a shocking loss in Minnesota last week and the Jets looked about as unimpressive as possible in a win at the Dolphins. West coast teams generally don’t fair well when traveling across the country and playing at 1:00, however this San Francisco team has been the exception over the past few years. Mark Sanchez has the lowest completion percentage put of any QB in the league and if continues playing at such a low level Tebow Time might become a reality once again. The Jets will want to run the ball and 49ers will not allow that to happen and Alex Smith shouldn’t have too hard of a time with New York’s defense although Antonio Cromartie has shut Randy Moss down in the past. San Fran should have their way in this one and win by double digits.

Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans: The Texans have looked like the most balanced team in the league through the first three weeks. Tennessee on the other hand has been up and down but had one of the more amazing wins last week at home against Detroit. If Houston wants to continue their strangle hold on the AFC South like they have for the past two years they need to win games like this. The Titans will have to resurrect Chris Johnson to take the pressure off Jake Locker but against a Wade Philips defense that is not an easy thing to do. Division games are never easy and I think that this game will be close but the Texans just have too much talent on both sides of the ball for Tennessee to handle.

New Orleans Saints at Green Bay Packers: This is the most intriguing matchup of the week, because once it is over both teams will be 1-3 or the record setting Saints will be 0-4. New Orleans has been unable to close the deal late in games and has proven the loss of head coach Sean Payton is a much bigger deal than anyone predicted before the season. Everyone has seen the interception turned touchdown that caused the Packers to lose last Monday Night in Seattle but one positive is the NFL Referees are back because of this blunder. QB Arron Rogers has been very outspoken this week and I believe that him and his team are going to make a statement and win convincingly and shut the door of the Saints’ season just after four games.

New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles: The Giants have played nearly perfect football the last six quarters while the Eagles got completely dominated last week against the undefeated Cardinals. Michael Vick has proven that he cannot handle a heavy pass rush and that is exactly what the G-Men have and unless Andy Reed decides to give the ball to LeSean McCoy, Philly is going to have another long day. Eli Manning looks like the best quarterback in the league right now but he has struggled in the past against the Eagles but this week will be different.

Chicago Bears at Dallas Cowboys: Expect to see some of Jay Cutlers patented facial expressions this Monday Night because Rob Ryan shows more looks than another defensive coordinator and Demarcus Ware will have his way with the offensive line of the Bears. Tony Romo will also have his hands full because the Cowboys’ o-line has been porous too but Romo is much better at getting the ball away under pressure than Cutler is and that should be the difference in the game.

WWE Night of Champions Predictions

Tonight, WWE Presents Night of Champions on Pay-Per-View. Here are my predictions for the announced matches.
-Pre-Show Battle Royal to determine Antonio Cesaro’s opponent for the U.S Championship. (Prediction: Brodus Clay Wins)

It has not been announced exactly who will be in the battle royal, but on this past episode of Smackdown, both Tyson Kidd and Brodus Clay confronted Antonio Cesaro, so you can get the idea that maybe one of those two will win. My guess would be the big man, Brodus Clay wins and finally wins a championship in WWE.

NFL Week 2 Picks (Video)

A video of our picks for Week 2 of the NFL season.

Here is the break down the premiere match-ups this week and then pick a winning for each game. Games are in no particular order.

1. Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers: The Bears are coming off of an impressive win in week one against the Colts. The Packers however lost their home opener to the 49ers and got manhandled in the process. I heard an analyst this morning calling this game a “must win” for Green Bay, don’t be ridiculous there is no such thing as a week two must win but if the Packers do lose at home for the second straight week it puts them two games behind Chicago in the division already and would double their lost total from last year. A lot of people are overreacting about the loss to San Fran, who was the best defensive team last year and have done nothing but improve on both sides of the ball. Although the Bears did look good in week 1 it was against Indy and Brian Urlacher didn’t look like his normal self out on the field. I believe that this Thursday Green Bay will rebound win a solid win (around 10 points) and quite any doubters.

Dallas Cowboys Defeat New York Giants 24-17

Posted: September 7, 2012 by Rob Barros in NFL, Sports

The 2012 NFL season kicked off last night as the defending Superbowl champion New York Giants played host to the Dallas Cowboys.  The Giants were the favorite heading into the contest featuring a relentless pass rush against a questionable Cowboys offensive line. In the early going, both defenses came up with big plays, as Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee forced a key fumble on Giants rookie running back, David Wilson. That fumble would kill a drive that was moving well into the Cowboys side of the field. The Giants defense would respond later on in the 2nd quarter when linebacker Michael Boley intercepted quarterback Tony Romo. During the run back it seemed Michael Boley was poised to score, but Cowboys offensive tackle, Tyron Smith committed a horse-collar penalty that would prove to be a key play in the game, as the ball was placed at the one yard line. You would think that the Giants should’ve easily scored, but the Cowboys defense stood their ground and forced the Giants to kick a field goal. Later, in the 2nd quarter, with about 3 minutes to go, the Cowboys marched down the field as Tony Romo hit Wide Receiver Kevin Ogletree in the endzone for the first touchdown of the game. The Cowboys led 7-3 at the half.

2012 NFC Division and Wild Card Winner Predictions

Posted: September 3, 2012 by Rob Barros in NFL, Sports

NFC East

Rob – New York Giants – Call it biased, but I see the Giants winning the NFC East again in 2012, and it won’t be easy. It could very well come down to the last game of the season with the Giants and Eagles facing off for the division crown at Metlife Stadium.

Shawn – Philadelphia Eagles – The Eagles will win the division only if they can somehow keep Michael Vick healthy, they have too may weapons on offense and defensively have seemed to figure things out. There is no excuse why they shouldn’t make the playoffs.

Jonny – New York Giants – The Giants should be able to repeat as division champions in what should be a good divisional race.

2012 AFC Division and Wild Card Predictions

AFC East:

Shawn: Barring a catastrophic injury, there is no reason why the New England Patriots will not continue their dominance in the division epically with their defensive issues by the looks of things taken care of. I expect the Jets to take a step back this year and finish third with the Bills coming in second.

Rob: The Patriots are clearly the favorite to win the AFC East in 2012. After coming 1 play short of a Super bowl trophy in 2011, the Pats loaded up on defensive help, and added a new weapon for Tom Brady in the form of Brandon Lloyd.

Jon: Patriots

AFC North:

Shawn: Even with the loss of Terrell Suggs, the Baltimore Ravens should pick up were they left off last season and win the division for the second straight year.

Rob: Getting Mike Wallace back will only help Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers defense is aging, but can still get the job done. I see Pittsburgh winning the North in another tight division race.

Jon: Steelers Read the rest of this entry »
