Maybe I should give up at this point.

It was another poor week of picking games for me. Just as poor as Week 1. Technically it was the same result!

This is my breakout week though, I can just feel it.

Last Week: 9-7
Season: 18-14

(Home teams are in all CAPS)

Sunday, Sept 26
Tennessee over NY GIANTS
Pittsburgh over TAMPA BAY
Cincinnati over CAROLINA
BALTIMORE over Cleveland
HOUSTON over Dallas
San Francisco over KANSAS CITY
MINNESOTA over Detroit
NEW ENGLAND over Buffalo
NEW ORLEANS over Atlanta
Washington over ST. LOUIS
Philadelphia over JACKSONVILLE
Oakland over ARIZONA<—–upset of the week
San Diego over SEATTLE
Indianapolis over DENVER
NY Jets over MIAMI

Monday, Sept 27
Green Bay over CHICAGO

Reasoning behind my upset of the week:

The Raiders aren’t that good, but Arizona is a little worse than that.

If the Raiders can run the ball at even 80% of what they did last week they stand a great chance of winning this game. Arizona lost their best DB and their best LB to free agency last year and they have replaced them with serviceable, at best, players.

I like Oakland to establish the run with Darren McFadden which will in turn allow for at least some semblance of a passing game. That combined with Arizona’s lack of a defense will lead to a Oakland win on the road.
