Good picks. Meanwhile, the Cowboys finally get the win. And i was looking at the Dolphins because i thought they couldn't keep losing - and they proved me right. If only i'd backed it up with some cash. :( Oh, did i tell you i hate the $#@!en Giants - i had a feeling they were going to beat the Pats.

Happens to me all the time, I over think the pick and end up not placing money on it. Nice pick on the fish, I couldnt bring myself to put money on a winless team.

I think the Rams are better than the lowly Browns and that the Lions will beat the Bears who are due for a let down after that big win over the Eagles.

Im all over the Giants this week too, with Frank Gore playing on one leg I dont think the 49ers will be able to run the ball like they need to to be effective. Alex smith is still Alex Smith.... I hope im right :/

The best thing about Finance Minister Bill English\'s latest Budget is that it does finally signal a much greater role for the private sector in the New Zealand economy. And another step along the way to extract this country from the political cul-de-sac in which Helen Clark\'s Labour Government parked us.

Matthew Stafford and Rob Gronkowski screwed up my picks terribly.

Not a great one if im honest.

The Jets and Patriots always dish up a good game but listening to Chris Collinsworth it sounded like they got themselves too worked up during practice that week. I think it was an amazing insight into sport at the highest level - the Jets were all hyped up and the Patriots approached it like any other game.

The Eagles @ $2.70 stand out for me. Sure, the Giants beat the Patriots but they have their number. I haven't seen anything special from them this season, whereas the Eagles seem to have fixed up their run defence and have threats all over the park. Vick is starting to look very dangerous. The Bengals are a value bet @ $3.40 against the Ravens, imo. I agree that Buffalo are good odds against the fish.

I cant see why Buffalo is an underdog, Miami is terrible at home.... and in general.

The Bengals are a good pick, you just never know which Ravens team is going to show up though, the one that beat the Steelers twice or the one that lost to the Seahawks. Also, the Bengals are missing A.J Green which takes away their number one deep threat.

The Eagles were in a tough spot last week against the Cards with Kolb being able to recognize most of their plays and I am still amazed that the Giants have managed to win this many games. I like that pick.

Edit: Looks like Vick wont be starting, rib injury so it might be Kafka which doesn't really fill me with confidence.

Apparently Ray Lewis isn't starting for the Ravens, which will take a lot of their passion out if he's sidelined. He's always the one geeing the team up, but it won't be the same if he's not playing himself. If Vick is out that changes the Eagles slightly, but i'd still take them - i think the Jets are flattering to deceive. Bengals - yeah, i can't figure those odds. Good win by the Broncos last night too!

Nice Eagles pick but hard luck with the Bengals, they were a bit robbed by that no TD call.

Oh and fuck the Broncos, although we tried our hardest to loose that game and we eventually succeeded in doing so.

And what the hell happened to the Bills and the team that started 4-0?

The Bengals were unlucky alright. I know they lost but the scoreline showed they were good value at $3.40. Ah well, made up for it with the Eagles, but i sweated all the way to the end. :) I'm glad i didn't get to watch the Pats until after i knew the result - they were AWFUL in the first half.

I know. Should be good.

Kind of want to see the Ravens win it. But I don't think they'll beat the Patriots, and the Patriots will probably win XLVI

Yeah, looks like it was a game of two halves. The last few minutes were a little nail biting.
