Our weekly NFL predictions continue even though the Seahawks are off this week. This is our third week of making picks on the blog. I've been making them in the paper since before the opener. Blog record is 20-8. Season record is 39-20. Some of the picks this week felt especially tenuous. I didn't feel great about taking the Saints, Giants, 49ers and Cowboys. But pick them, I did.
The head-to-head competition with my wife stands as follows: Sando 20-8, Wife 16-12. As always, we submitted these picks without consulting one another (a sign of communication problems, no doubt). Her shot at Jeff Fisher led to the discovery of a hilarious site detailing all known variations of a certain haircut (business in front, party in back, as they say). Full picks are below.
Oh, one more thing: For the first time in at least a decade, I'm playing a round of golf in October. Thanks for the bye-week schedule, Mike Holmgren.
