Giants over the Bears looks like a good pick. The Giants are way more talented than their record, but its possible the Bears are overlooking them simply because of their record. The Giants could turn it around this week.
Browns over Lions...who the hell knows? Both teams are maddeningly inconsistent. Weeden sucks, but at least he throws a not-quite-sexy-but-I-wouldn't-kick-her-out-of-bed deep ball. So he gives them a chance a couple plays a game if the defense can keep the score low.
Cards over SF...I wish, but I don't see any way it happens. For Arizona to win in SF, the 9ers would have to be so depleted, they'd have to be without stars like Aldon Smith, Patrick Willis, and Michael Cr...you know what, maybe they have a chance.
Chargers over Colts...probably the most likely of all these upsets. Philip Rivers is quietly the 2nd best QB in the league so far this year. Could be a trap game for the Colts. Its also a Monday night game, where west coast teams have a significant body clock advantage.
And...no way the Foreskins roll over the Boys. Their defense is dreadful. It won't be close enough for Romo's typical choke job to lose them the game.
For my upset pick, I like Baltimore over Green Bay.
