            Last week, the NFL lost two of its undefeated teams (Ravens and Jets) leaving five left. This week the Colts travel to Tennessee but if I had to predict, Manning will lead his team into to 5-0. The Saints won’t have to worry about losing this week considering they have a bye, but they need to begin to prepare for when the Giants come stomping into New Orleans. Eli has his team right behind his brother as the Raider’s visit Giants Stadium. Is it possible for the Raiders to win? Sure, why not. Giants will more than likely travel to the Big Easy 5-0. The Vikings are headed to St. Louis this week and I don’t think there will be much of an upset there. All Favre needs to do is have an average game and hand the ball to Peterson or his defense. Here we go the last undefeated team; Denver. They have an okay ball club and are starting to prove it but I think they will be the next weakest link, good-bye. The Patriots are getting back on track and this will be a good test for the Broncos, they do have the home field advantage factor but I think they will be 4-1 after week five.

            How about the winless teams? There are six and no Detroit isn’t one of them. Let’s go from worst to the best of the worst. St. Louis has had an unlucky start and they have the Vikings coming to Missouri this week. Remember the Warner- Faulk era, I was thinking about that earlier and its funny to see how a team can go from one of the best to the worst in a few years, gotta love the salary cap. Rams don’t get it done this week and won’t be first to get a win. Buccaneers? Haha I don’t think they are going to be trotting out of Philly with a win but it’s possible. Two teams down who I think will win this week but the Kansas City Chiefs are next. Dallas flies up to Kansas to go 3-2, and Kansas hopes maybe next week that they can be 1-5. The Browns are the first winless team that I’m going to talk positive about. They go across the country to face the 1-3 Bills. I honestly think that the Browns will get their first win because well actually I don’t know. It just sounds like one of the upsets the Browns will earn favor of. The Titans are way behind the Colts and have a division against them this week. They will be home but they aren’t strong enough to defeat them and Manning is on fire. The Panthers will also get a win I think. They host the Redskins this week and I honestly feel that coming off a bye, Carolina will find themselves 1-3. Yes, they are the only winless team to have only thee losses.

         So, wrapping it up here, my predictions are that the Broncos will go 4-1, Browns will go 1-4, and the Panther will go 1-3. As the NFL season rolls on, we will be knocking off more undefeated teams and until we see the next weakest link, good-bye.
