My picks took way too long the past two times I tried to post them and didn’t come in on time but I have an easier way to do them that you will see below is quicker. Enjoy.
LOCK OF THE WEEK
San Francisco 34 7 Oakland Sun. 4:25 PM FOX
This is an obvious lock. San Francisco hasn’t been great but Oakland had one upset win by a very small amount. Oakland is so bad, they could have gone winless this year. Now they’ll most likely be 1-15. Why won’t Kaepernick go to Frank Gore for an 100 yard game? Justin Tuck can’t put a stop to that. The 49ers also have a monster defense. James Jones, Mychal Rivera and Andre Holmes. Can they pass by NaVarro Bowman?
NO WAY! So, San Francisco will really crush Oakland.
UPSET PICK OF THE WEEK
St. Louis 17 20 Washington Sun. 1:00 PM FOX
How is this an upset? I’d say it’s more of a tough matchup the Redskins will win, but it’s the most of an upset that I predicted that I could find. This battle of two not so good teams, with Washington at home it gives them a much better matchup then they’ve had the past two weeks, although they remain the record wise underdog. DeSean Jackson should be good if he’s healthy and they should even add a little Alfred Morris into the mix. Aaron Donald isn’t good enough for Jackson. St. Louis should be able to do a little, but DeAngelo Hall should most likely get at least one interception with the kind of QB the Rams have right now. They’ll run to Tre Mason but once Washington charges on offense, DeAngelo Hall won’t let Shaun Hill pass to Kenny Britt, Tavon Austin and especially Stedman Bailey, the current starter, so that slightly opens the door for Britt and Austin. This should be high scoring unlike my prediction says, but Washington should get the slight upset.
