    <img width="238" height="177" align="left" title="NFL Logo" alt="NFL Logo" src="http://www.bolttalk.com/images/NFL_LOGO.jpg" />It's been a rough week for me in more ways than one. It's never good if Bob Costas, aqua the weasel has a better record than I do. Time to get on track, so I'm going straight to the picks.

    <em><strong>Bob Costas 32-14
    Chris Carter 31-15
    Chris Collinsworth 28-18
    Dan Marino 28-18
    Thumper 28-18</strong></em>

    Open date: Denver, N.Y. Giants, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay
    <strong>
    Sunday, Oct 1</strong>

    <em><strong>Arizona 17, Atlanta 28</strong></em>
    Arizona has let me down to many times this season. Expect Mike Vick to get back on track after an emotional loss to the Saints at the Super Dome.

    <em><strong>Dallas 14, Tennessee 6</strong></em>
    Dallas hasn't looked great, but Tennessee has been terrible. Dallas with no TO is still better than this Titans squad.

    <em><strong>Indianapolis 21, N.Y. Jets 14</strong></em>
    Chad Pennington will keep them close and Indy lacks a running game, but I don't think the Jets will be able to keep Peyton and company from getting into the end zone.

    <em><strong>Miami 10, Houston 17</strong></em>
    Miami should win this game, but that's why they play them. Culpepper just isn't right. Miami finished last year strong, but it's been a struggle so far this year. They are going to continue to struggle offensively.

    <em><strong>Minnesota 22, Buffalo 16</strong></em>
    I think JP Losman might be the real deal and could be considered comeback player of the year, but the Bills still lose to the resurgent Vikings.

    <em><strong>New Orleans19, Carolina 17</strong></em>
    Carolina was a fashionable pick to make the Super Bowl this season in the preseason polls. Just shows how little those polls really mean. Don't expect a let down after an emotion win at home. The Saints have talent and have already won two road games

    <em><strong>San Diego 28, Baltimore 10</strong></em>
    This will be the highest total the Chargers have given up all season, but they still win easily.

    <em><strong>San Francisco 10, Kansas City 12</strong></em>
    San Francisco is much improved, but Larry Johnson is about to break out. Even without Trent Green, the Chiefs are too much for the 49ers.

    <em><strong>Detroit 14, St. Louis 27</strong></em>
    The Rams have field day against this Detroit defense. How does Matt Millen still have a job?

    <em><strong>Cleveland 17, Oakland 6</strong></em>
    Both of these teams have been struggling, but the Raider look lost. Are they really an NFL team?

    <em><strong>Jacksonville 21, Washington 10</strong></em>
    Tough defense and a scrappy offence have proven to be the right mix for the Jags. They will be too much for the redskins.

    <em><strong>New England 14, Cincinnati 28</strong></em>
    The Pats just don't seem to have the "it" factor anymore. They squeaked out a few wins, but don't expect that to happen against a very strong Bengals Team.

    <em><strong>Seattle 10, Chicago 28</strong></em>
    Seattle looks like the class of the NFC right now, but Alexander will be sorely missed while he's out with a broken bone in his foot. Hasselbeck proved he can throw and he's got the receivers to do it this year, but the Bears defense is too strong to allow a single dimensional team to win. Without Alexander, the Seahawks lose big.

    <strong>Monday, Oct 2</strong>

    <em><strong>Green Bay 6, Philadelphia 26</strong></em>
    Brett Favre looked like the Favre of old last week. To bad he can't play Detroit every week. NcNabb is the story in this game, not Favre.
