NFL 2011 Week 7 Round-Up

Everyone picked pretty well this week, though I gained a game.

Chargers at Jets
The Wife: Jets
Me: Chargers
Steve: Jets
WINNER: Jets (good for them; though it's becoming increasingly clear that with the Patriots kicking butt, the Jets are chasing a wild card birth once again . . .)

Bears at Bucs
The Wife: Bears
Me: Bears
Steve: Bucs
WINNER: Bears (the Bucs are really up and down this year . . .)

Redskins at Panthers
The Wife: Panthers
Me: Panthers
Steve: Panthers
WINNER: Panthers (I bet next year the Panthers get some prime time games)

Falcons at Lions
The Wife: Lions
Me: Falcons
Steve: Lions
WINNER: Falcons (not to be blasphemous, but Suh, Fairley & Co. haven't been quite as destructive for the Lions as everyone predicted . . .)

Seahawks at Browns
The Wife: Seahawks
Me: Browns
Steve: Seahawks
WINNER: Browns ("the battle of the mediocre!" I said; have truer words ever been spoken?)

Broncos at Dolphins
The Wife: Broncos
Me: Dolphins
Steve: Broncos
WINNER: Broncos (a good reminder that you shouldn't leave the stadium until 0:00 shows on the clock).

Texans at Titans
The Wife: Titans
Me: Titans
Steve: Texans
WINNER: Texans

Chiefs at Raiders
The Wife: Raiders
Me: Chiefs
Steve: Raiders
WINNER: Chiefs (I understand why the Raiders were desperate, but I'm really not convinced Palmer has the arm strength/accuracy to play anymore . . . he's been on a downhill slide for a few years now, and ten months on the couch hasn't helped)

Steelers at Cardinals
The Wife: Steelers
Me: Steelers
Steve: Steelers
WINNER: Steelers (my pre-season prediction that the Cards would win the NFC West may have been a tad mistaken)

Packers at Vikings
The Wife: Packers
Me: Packers
Steve: Packers
WINNER: Packers (didn't watch this one, but sounds like it was a much closer game than most people expected)

Rams at Cowboys
The Wife: Cowboys
Me: Cowboys
Steve: Cowboys
WINNER: Cowboys

Colts at Saints
The Wife: Saints
Me: Saints
Steve: Saints
WINNER: Saints (62-7! Never have I witnessed such an NFL beatdown. Seriously.)

Ravens at Jags
The Wife: Ravens
Me: Ravens
Steve: Ravens
WINNER: Jags (a nice upset; the "Any Given Sunday" theory still holds. Inconsistent Ravens offense is the reason that some pundits who thought they were the best team in the AFC need to watch more Patriots games)


The Wife: 8-5
Me: 9-4
Steve: 8-5


The Wife: 57-49
Me: 60-46
Steve: 70-36
