+++ NFL Picks / Week 9 +++

Semi-random selections, though I can't pass up the AFC North Division game. Browns are playing with more confidence; Ravens showing their age. Is Green Bay really that good? Seattle @ -5? Good luck, gang.

Favorite / Spread / Underdog (Home team in CAPS)

GREEN BAY / 11 / Arizona
Miami / 2.5 / INDIANAPOLIS
Baltimore / 3.5 / CLEVELAND
Chicago / 3.5 / TENNESSEE
SEATTLE / 5 / Minnesota
NY GIANTS / 3 / Pittsburgh
ATLANTA / 4 / Dallas
NEW ORLEANS / 3 / Philadelphia

4. Funny you mention that...

Listened to "Redskins" radio, and they were promo'ing the game and referred to Carolina as "inept".

It wasn't Kornheiser (who unfortunately is on during the middle of the day).

I did get to see PTI's studio in DC a few weeks back!

5. Is that in reference to the "must-win" quote from Shanahan?

Or Griffin vs Newton? Sorry if I missed something. With the three other NFC East teams playing in big games the 'Skins fell off my radar.

Reminder: you and everyone else are welcomed to suggest games. Let me know by Wednseday night. Winners are guaranteed a selection, though if you send me a request it's more than likely we'll play it.

Washington, minus 3, at home? I'd think they'd be a sure-thing.

6. Bit of news to consider about the Steelers / Giants game:

The Pittsburgh Steelers will fly to New Jersey only hours before playing the Giants on Sunday because of a travel disruption caused by Hurricane Sandy.

The Steelers' hotel in Jersey City still doesn't have power since the superstorm hit the East Coast, and the team can't find another hotel to accommodate the organization in the area.

The Steelers now will fly into Newark, N.J., on Sunday morning, have a pregame meal at a hotel near the airport and bus to the stadium, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Kickoff against the defending Super Bowl champions is 4:25 p.m.

14. Let's do it Pick'em Style!!!

GREEN BAY / 11 / Arizona----------------Arizona
Miami / 2.5 / INDIANAPOLIS--------------Miami
Baltimore / 3.5 / CLEVELAND-------------Cleveland
Chicago / 3.5 / TENNESSEE--------------Chicago
SEATTLE / 5 / Minnesota----------------Seattle
NY GIANTS / 3 / Pittsburgh--------------NY Giants
ATLANTA / 4 / Dallas--------------------Atlanta
NEW ORLEANS / 3 / Philadelphia----------New Orleans

Homer prediction-----Arizona's D will keep it close enough to steal
Other predictions-----Baltimore and Dallas are done, sure they might eke out a close one every now and then, but they're finished and at least Dallas will be looking for a new coach again.......The Andy Reid deathwatch continues this Monday.......I think the Seattle/Minnesota game will be the best running game all year for both teams, it will come down to field goals.......
Wild predictions-----A coach will get fired this week......Michael Vick will get injured
