Hello football fans! Welcome to Week 9 of the NFL season!

We started with a blowout on Thursday, as the Titans defeated the Jaguars in convincing fashion. We then started Sunday with another tie, this time in London. Thanks to a missed field goal once again, the Cincinnati Bengals and Washington Redskins ended in a tie at 27 across the pond.

Luckily, the other two games that went into overtime ended with victors. Oakland managed to overcome a missed field goal as the Raiders took home the victory in Tampa Bay. Sunday night saw the first battle of Philadelphia’s Carson Wentz and Dallas’ Dak Prescott duel into free football. It was Prescott that led the Cowboy to victory against the Eagles.

I went 9-4 for Week 8, bringing my total to 68-52 for the season. Ties count as losses when you make picks. It’s simple: if your team doesn’t win, you still get the big L. Here’s a recap of what I got right and wrong:

 Thu Oct 27 8:25 pm  Jacksonville Jaguars  Tennessee Titans
 Sun Oct 30 9:30 am  Washington Redskins  Cincinnati Bengals X
1:00 pm  Detroit Lions  Houston Texans X
1:00 pm  Green Bay Packers  Atlanta Falcons
1:00 pm  Kansas City Chiefs  Indianapolis Colts
1:00 pm  New England Patriots  Buffalo Bills
1:00 pm  New York Jets  Cleveland Browns
1:00 pm  Oakland Raiders  Tampa Bay Buccaneers (s.o.)
1:00 pm  Seattle Seahawks  New Orleans Saints X
4:05 pm  San Diego Chargers  Denver Broncos
4:25 pm  Arizona Cardinals  Carolina Panthers
8:30 pm  Philadelphia Eagles  Dallas Cowboys
 Mon Oct 31 8:30 pm  Minnesota Vikings  Chicago Bears X

Here are my picks for this week. Taking a bye for this week will be Arizona, Chicago, New England, Washington, Cincinnati and Houston. Remember, the s.o. stands for the shutout pick:

 Thu Nov 3 8:25 pm  Atlanta Falcons  Tampa Bay Buccaneers
 Sun Nov 6 1:00 pm  Dallas Cowboys  Cleveland Browns
1:00 pm  Detroit Lions  Minnesota Vikings
1:00 pm  Jacksonville Jaguars  Kansas City Chiefs
1:00 pm  New York Jets  Miami Dolphins
1:00 pm  Philadelphia Eagles  New York Giants
1:00 pm  Pittsburgh Steelers Baltimore Ravens
4:05 pm  Carolina Panthers  Los Angeles Rams
4:05 pm  New Orleans Saints  San Francisco 49ers

4:25 pm  Tennessee Titans  San Diego Chargers
8:30 pm  Denver Broncos  Oakland Raiders
 Mon Nov 7 8:30 pm  Buffalo Bills  Seattle Seahawks (s.o.)

Keep in mind all times and games are subject to change. Good luck to all teams and those who are also making picks as well.
