My NFL picks for playoffs round 2

Here we are at playoffs, week 2! Last week saw some great games, particularly Seattle over Dallas and of course, my New England Patriots defeating the Jets. I like Pennington, so it’s a tiny bit of a shame to see him lose…so let’s hope he finds a home with a team that doesn’t choke against the Pats so consistently.

This week has some classic match-ups in store as well. New England at San Diego stands out, as does Indianapolis at Baltimore. I’m taking Indy, and calling it an upset, since I think the whole world expects Peyton to get shaken and stirred by Balt’s defense.

Last week: I went 3-1.

Playoffs overall: 3-1, good for 75%.

Here are my picks for this week:

Ind at Bal — Ind
Phi at NO — NO
Sea at Chi — Sea
NE at SD — NE

My NFL picks for week 15

Here we are again- it’s time for this week’s NFL Pool wrap-up and preview.

Last week: 7-9

Summary:This past week was a four-way tie between all four of the participants in the pool. So technically, I haven’t lost for two straight weeks now following my win in week 13.

My picks for NFL week 14

Here we are again- it’s time for this week’s NFL Pool wrap-up and preview.

Last week: 10-6

Summary: Yellow! For the first time in 13 tries, I won the pool last week with a 10-6 record, a tie for my best performance yet (and that was week 1). Although the final tally is not in yet, I have also gained a number of games in the overall season standings in the past few weeks. So as you can see by this handy graphic, after a few bleak weeks, things are looking up.

Yay, I'm a winner! Yay!

My picks for NFL week 12

Here we are again- it’s time for this week’s NFL Pool wrap-up and preview.

Last week: 9-7

Summary: Yay, I did much better last week. If only Washington had won and I had picked Jacksonville like I should have. Ahh well. No word on whether or not I won for the first time last week- the judges will ring in tomorrow during Thanksgiving festivities. But I was above .500, and at this point that’s good enough for me, as I’m currently 11 games back of the overall season lead (but still in 2nd place).

My picks for NFL week 10

Here we are again- it’s time for this week’s NFL Pool wrap-up and preview.

Season to date:
65-46 – Good for 59%
