For the last couple of weeks I have been playing Frank's Picks on msn.foxsports.com and so far I am 3-5.
My picks in Week 1 were, the Eagles over the Rams, the Redskins over the Giants, Browns over the Bengals and Seahawks over the 49ers.
I was 2-2 in Week 1.
My picks in Week 2 were the Bears over the Saints, the Cowboys over the 49ers, Ravens over Titans and Chargers over the Patriots.
I was 1-3 in Week 2.
Now let me defend my Week 2 picks. The Bears over the Saints, how was I supposed to know that the Bears were gonna be demolished like they were, did you see what they did to the Falcons?
95 percent of the people picking the games chose the Ravens to beat the Titans, so I can't exactly be blamed when almost everybody else got it wrong, too.
The Chargers over the Patriots? It was Tom Brady versus one of the best defenses last year, and Phillip Rivers vs. a young defense that hasn't proven anything, yet. I thought Rivers was gonna win that battle and I was wrong, okay?
For this weeks picks...
Eagles vs Giants
The Eagles are coming off a 35-31 loss to the Falcons. With a 31-21 lead, Michael Vick was knocked out of the game with a concussion. He is practicing, and I expect him to play this Sunday and play well.
I believe that the Eagles will establish a run game, and then get Michael Vick to go to a passing game.
The Eagles' defensive line are going to give Eli Manning nightmares and the secondary are going to have a field day. It could be one of the multiple INT games for Eli Manning.
My Pick: Eagles
Packers vs Bears
The Bears are 1-1 this season. They were demolished 30-13 by the Saints, and now they face the Packers. Fortunately the Bears are at home, unfortunately the Bears have given up 11 sacks this season.
If the Bears are to have a chance they have to block Clay Matthews. I don't think they can and with the way the Packers' offense have been playing, the Bears are probably going to fall in this game.
My Pick: Packers
Ravens vs Rams
The Ravens let me down last week and I was afraid that they might let me down this week as well. But I think that the Ravens are going to look for some redemption.
The Rams' offense has not been able to get going, so far, they are ranked 28th in the league in points, while the Ravens are ranked 15th. The Rams are ranked 28th in points allowed, while the Ravens are fifth.
My Pick: Ravens
Upset Pick: 49ers over Bengals
