I’m basing this week’s picks on which cities I prefer.
Chicago at Carolina: Easy. Bears win. Chicago is one of the greatest American cities.
Tennessee at Cincinnati: I don’t like driving in Cincinnati.
Green Bay at Detroit: Tough one. I have never been to Green Bay, and I loathe Detroit. I’m picking the Packers because I like the idea of a publicly owned team.
Buffalo at Jacksonville: I respect Buffalo’s blue-collar work ethic.
Oakland at Kansas City: I don’t care.
Indianapolis at Minnesota: I have to go with the Colts. Minneapolis may be nice, but the Colts must win.
NY Giants at St. Louis: Have you ever spent a night in St. Louis? I did and it was terrible. And I enjoy being in New York.
New Orleans at Washington: Washington is a cesspool, but it’s the cesspool of OUR leaders.
San Francisco at Seattle: Tough one. These are two of the most beautiful American cities. But I think San Francisco is more beautiful than Seattle.
Atlanta at Tampa Bay: Atlanta has the Coke museum.
Miami at Arizona: My dad and stepmother live in Arizona.
San Diego at Denver: I love both cities, but San Diego has the beach and proximity to Mexico going for it.
New England at New York Jets: New York is my preferred city, but I would be stupid to bet against the Pats, even if Brady is out for the season.
Pittsburgh at Cleveland: Where is Sipe when you need him? Cleveland rocks!
Philadelphia at Dallas: I don’t care for Dallas, but I am giving the Cowboys a pass because of Ike.
Baltimore at Houston: Will this game be played? Probably not. But if it is, I like soft-shell crabs more than I like whatever Houston has to eat.
I’m liking this method of picking NFL winners.
