    Happy Veterans' Day everyone, and thank you to all those who serve and served in the military and keep our freedoms free.

    Today is also the first Thursday night game of the year and Ray Lewis isn't too happy about it.  But oh well, we the fans are.  Man up Ray, other sports play multiple times a week.

    With the pleasantries out of the way, lets get on to the picks this week.

BAL @ ATL

    Speaking of Ray Lewis, his Ravens travel to Atlanta to take on the surprising Falcons.

    As good as the Falcons have looked this season, their biggest test came against a good defensive team in the Steelers, and they lost.

    They take on an equally good Ravens team and the Ravens D will do enough.

    Ravens win 17-13.

TEN @ MIA

    Randy Moss debuts as a Titan and Chad Henne gets benched in Miami.

    So do these moves change the outcome out this game?

    No.

    Either way, the Dolphins were going to lose this game.

    Titans win 24-20.

MIN @ CHI

    MINNEAPOLIS - NOVEMBER 07:  Quarterback Brett Favre #4 of the Minnesota Vikings runs with the ball against the Arizona Cardinals at Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome on November 7, 2010 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The Vikings won 27-24 in overtime.  (Photo by

    Favre lead a nice comeback against a bad Cardinals team. 

    Now he plays an even worse Bears team that almost dropped one to the winless Bills.

    Favre keeps the Vikings season alive for one more week. 

    Vikes win 28-10.

DET @ BUF

    Is this the week the Bills finally break through with a win?

    No.

    Detroit wins 24-10.

CAR @ TB

    The Panthers are terrible.

    Bucs win 31-9.

HOU @ JAC

    HOUSTON - SEPTEMBER 12:  Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak has words with referee Ed Hochuli after the Texans were charged with a timeout after the play clock was zero against the indianapolis Colts during the NFL season opener at Reliant Stadium on S

    Gary Kubiak could be the next coach on the hot seat.

    The Texans had playoff aspirations at the start of the season and after a Week One win over their rival Colts, they had division aspirations.

    Well they've kind of gone into a free fall here, but will play the bad Jaguars.

    Texans win 35-17.

NYJ @ CLE

7 of 15

    CLEVELAND - NOVEMBER 07:  Running back Peyton Hillis #40 of the Cleveland Browns scores a touchdown in front of Jerod Mayo #51 of the New England Patriots at Cleveland Browns Stadium on November 7, 2010 in Cleveland, Ohio.  (Photo by Matt Sullivan/Getty I

    Peyton Hillis is a monster, and the Browns shocked the world last week by beating the Patriots.

    Can they do it again?

    Hmm...

    Yes they can, Browns win 20-17.

CIN @ INDY

    This might be the week that Batman and Robin finally have a split.

    The Bengals are terrible and even a banged-up Colts team will easily beat them.

    Colts win 34-10.

KC @ DEN

    KC had a heart-breaker last week and Denver is just terrible.

    The Chiefs bounce back and beat Denver, 21-17.

DAL @ NYG

    ARLINGTON, TX - OCTOBER 31:  (L-R) Quarterback Jon Kitna and assistant head coahc/offensive coordinator Jason Garrett of the Dallas Cowboys look on from the sideline against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Cowboys Stadium on October 31, 2010 in Arlington, Tex

    The Cowboys quit on Wade Phillips last week and he got fired. Now they have Jason Garrett.

    They could do two things, either play their heart out for their new coach or just quit on the season.

    Last week told me the Cowboys are a bunch of spineless quitters.

    And to top it off they get the Giants again.

    G-Men win 56-6.

SEA @ ARI

11 of 15

    SEATTLE - NOVEMBER 07:  Running back Leon Washington #33 of the Seattle Seahawks rushes against the New York Giants at Qwest Field on November 7, 2010 in Seattle, Washington. The Giants defeated the Seahawks 41-7. (Photo by Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images)

    An epic battle for the NFC West.  You can throw stats and records out the window for this one.  This is a rivalry to end all rivalries.

    Not really, but Fox paid me a butt load of money to try and hype this game so it doesn't get beaten in the ratings by Antiques Road Show.

    I guess I have to pick a winner, so Seahawks win 17-13.

STL @ SF

    LONDON, ENGLAND - OCTOBER 31:  Troy Smith #1 of San Francisco 49ers in action during the NFL International Series match between Denver Broncos and San Francisco 49ers at Wembley Stadium on October 31, 2010 in London, England. This is the fourth occasion w

    Another gladiatorial battle in the NFC West.

    Honestly it's kind of hard to pick this one, Troy Smith has breathed some life into the 49ers, but St. Louis is a decent team.

    Umm...

    I'm going with Sam Bradford here. 

    Rams win 20-10.

NE @ PIT

13 of 15

    FOXBORO, MA - OCTOBER 31:  Danny Woodhead #39 of the New England Patriots celebrates his touchdown with teammates Dan Connolly #63, Wes Welker #83, and Matt Light #72 against the Minnesota Vikings in the first half at Gillette Stadium on October 31, 2010

    A possible AFC Championship matchup preview right here.

    A tough defense vs. an explosive offense.

    The Pats got upset by the amazing Peyton Hillis and Colt McCoy, but the Steelers have a suspect secondary.

    Honestly, the pick comes down to home field advantage.  So Jeff Reed kicks a game-winner.

    17-14, Steelers win.

PHI @ WAS

14 of 15

    PHILADELPHIA - OCTOBER 03:  Donovan McNabb #5 of the Washington Redskins runs the ball against Darryl Tapp #91 of the Philadelphia Eagles  on October 3, 2010 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  (Photo by Jim McIsaac/Getty Images)

    The terrible bye week for the Redskins is over and the Eagles have come off a big win against the beat-up Colts.

    McNabb not only has leftover detractors in Philly but he has them in D.C. now too.

    On the biggest stage of the week, McNabb is going to silence his critics, including his head coach and offensive coordinator.

    Redskins win 24-20.

That's All Folks

    Enjoy football tonight, and once again happy Veterans' Day!
