My good friend Ricky Gangsta over at The Sports Script asked me to make this week’s NFL picks and I might have gotten carried away. Be sure to check out the site and you can follow Ricky on twitter at @rickygangsta and the Sports Script at @thesportsscript so give them some love. Also, my Cover 3 NFL Female co-host Mandi Woodruff writes there as well so hit her up on twitter at @dvnmsm you won’t be sorry.

Bengals/Dolphins

The Dolphins are on a four game losing streak and are now without starting offensive tackle Jonathan Martin. This will be a Bengals bloodbath.
Bengals 35 Dolphins 10

Falcons/Panthers

The poor Falcons are bit by injury bug and the ship is slowly sinking. The Panthers on the other hand are on the rise.
Panthers 27 Falcons 17

Vikings/Cowboys

The Vikings are playing musical chairs at QB and don’t know how to use Adrian Peterson. The Cowboys are a puzzling team but they should win this one. Key word there being should.
Cowboys 28 Vikings 17

Saints/Jets

This game should be full of Ryan on Ryan awesomeness but the Jets are clearly outmatched.
Saints 35 Jets 17

Titans/Rams

Former Titans coach Jeff Fisher plays host to his former team with a list of former Titans players and coaches by his side. Unfortunately for Fisher, this isn’t his old Titans team.
Titans 24 Rams 13

Chiefs/Bills

The Chiefs are for real while the Bills continue to be a team that under performs in key moments. This one will be closer than it should but still no contest.
Chiefs 21 Bills 9

Chargers/RedSkins

The Chargers are an unlikely 4-3 while the Redskins are a disappointing 2-5. The Chargers should win this game but I won’t have a big shocked look on my face if they don’t.
Chargers 24 Redskins 21

Eagles/Raiders

Welcome to the NFL Chip Kelly where having consistent quarterback play can make or break you. Both teams have won 3 games but the Raiders are coming off a big win over the Pittsburgh Steelers while Kelly will face a quarterback he tried to recruit to Oregon.
Eagles 17 Raiders 24

Bucs/Seahawks

The Tampa Bay Bucaneers are a hot MRSA mess and play at Seattle. RIP Mike Glennon.
Bucs 9 Seahawks 28

Ravens/Browns

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is undefeated against the Browns which isn’t really saying much but what else can you say about a game of this caliber? Both teams have won 3 games and the Browns have now moved on from the Brandon Weeden era so there is hope. Can Jason Campbell string together two good games against a Ravens team that is finally getting healthy?
Ravens 21 Browns 17

Steelers/Pats

The Steelers are a bad football team but the Patriots have hardly played stellar football. It’s amazing they have only lost 2 football games but they won’t lose this one.
Steelers 17 Patriots 28

Colts/Texans

The premier matchup in the AFC South in Week 9 has the 5-2 Colts traveling to face the 2-5 Texans. The loss of Brian Cushing hurts and the Texans have injuries to both Arian Foster and Ben Tate who could be game time decisions. Did I mention they have now moved on (apparently) from Matt Schaub and are starting Case Keenum?
Colts 31 Texans 17

Packers/Bears

A matchup between two fierce rivalries but the Bears are without quarterback Jay Cutler who is out with a groin injury. Hasn’t stopped him from procreating as it was just announced he is spawning another child.
Packers 31 Bears 21
