    The Bengals are in decline. They have had their running game shut down and it's made their passing attack much less effective. Palmer's still a good quarterback but he has his flaws and the Jets have figured them out. They'll play a better game but I'm giving that one to the JETS.

    The Ravens have a strong offense all around and their defense can go from scary good one week to laughable the next. Overall, it's solid though and Brady will be dinged up. Still, I see Belicheck pulling tricks on them all game to keep it close while controlling the time of possession well enough to position his team for a handy little win in the first round.

    I'm guessing cause it appears ocho cinco is hurt that cinci will have nothing offensivelly except a running game which the jits will be waiting for. So Jits win againt cinci.

    The ravens/cheatorits game is more difficult to call. Though the game is in new england. But their main weapon welker is hurt. The other thing is the weather. THat game could go either ways.

    YOu do realize no one likes the cheatorits(pats). WE'd rather see them dead and buried. And we'd be happy to do the digging. :yes:

    Cheatorits will get beaten by the chargers so bad you'll be finding your head up your backside when the game is over. :yes:

    We'll see. History points to a different outcome. You need to overcome the weight of your previous shortcomings.

    The only reason the Jets beat the Colts the first time they met, was becuase the Colts pulled their starters. Otherwise the Colts had the game in hand until Painter came in.

    Beer Guy, you were lucky you beat Miami. Your Defense is not impressive. It is more like a sieve. We know how to shut down Moss, and Brady has broken ribs. He didn't look that great Sunday. Sorry, I just think you are fooling yourself. Put down the pipe, and remove the rose colored glasses please. :icon_rofl:

    You can't blame a guy for backing his team.:tup:

    Until we're eliminated, I'm sticking with my battered football team.

    If we win next week, then we beat you guys, just think how pissed off you'll be. The Pats have nothing to lose.

    Beer Guy, I don't fault you for backing your team. Just trying to open your eyes is all. Nothing wrong with a little smack among Fans. :tup:

    The Colts were only up 15-10 in the 3rd quarter when the starters were pulled. I don't think that game was in hand at all.

    First worry about them beating the Ravens.

    That's not going to be an easy game for them, home or not.

    Rivers won't be playing with one knee and LT won't be on the sidelines this time.

    Nobody on earth wants to see the Patriots in another Super Bowl.

    For real, the most disliked team in the entire NFL.

    I hate the Cowboys and Broncos more than I dislike the Pats.

    Oh, and my hatred for the Yankees transcends baseball.

    I watched the game the Jets weren't doing anything. Peyton was having no trouble and the Jets had trouble with Dallas Clark. The game turned on the turnover by Painter. The only TD the Jets managed before that was a kick return. The Jets offense could do nothing to that point.

    I was mixed up about the Houston and New England game, and the Miami vs. Pittsburgh game. When I made the Miami statement. I stand corrected :eek: . New England is still weak on Defense. With Welker out it will hurt them. I think our close wins were not barley winning. We were in the game and playing tough. Barely winning to me, means you looked bad all game and escaped with a win, you didn't deserve.
