NFL Pick'em: Week Nine

As explosive as spoiled curry, this here NFL Pick'em is getting exciting.  I feel I must again apologize for the redundancy in the Clash this week.  My hope for that is to find the biggest & hardest to pick game of the week.  I strain to avoid using the same team two weeks in a row. 

But "parity" has created a flawed, choppy league of bobbing mediocrity.  While it could be a battle royale playoffs, it leaves the regular season games hard to fathom.  The Steelers vs. Giants is the best matchup between legitimate contenders, yet I'm getting tired of using them.  But what was another option?  Seattle vs. Vikings?  DeAngelo Hall vs. the world?

1.  Adw:  66 pts (+11)
2.  Jess:  57 pts (+17)
3.  Big BM:  55 pts (+18)
4.  Garwood:  35 pts (+11)
5.  Barnyard:  2 pts

Nerfneck! It just wouldn't be the same without him.

1. Texans
2. Ravens
3. Red Skelton! Red Skelton!
4. I really *want* the Vikes to win. Washington loses.
5. Steelers
6. Lots of one possession games today: Eagles/Saints, Bears/Titans, Bucs/Raiders... I'll go Cincy/Denver - late Cincy score for the win.
7. Ravens blow out Cleveland
8. Miami defense ( 9. Lions offense (+300 passing)

Other random predictions: Either Donnie Avery or TY Hilton has a huge game today but Miami spoils Chuck Pagano's visit. Ahmad Bradshaw loses a fumble, loses his temper, and gets benched. Chicago's defense fails to score a TD and Tennessee pulls out the upset. Steelers/Giants is surprisingly high scoring (over), Saints/Eagles surprisingly low (under). Yay football!

I hadn't taken the Savage throwbacks into consideration. I dislike your favorite team but that's a sweet kit.
