Week 9 – Survivor Pools

We have
surpassed the halfway point of the NFL season. Next weekend begins the
Thursday night games, so keep note of that. However, let’s check out the games
on tap in Week 9.

 

I will
give my analysis on each game and pick a winner in that matchup. At the end of
my analysis, I will select the best options for your survivor pool.

 

Washington

@ Atlanta

– The Falcons are an option this
week home against the Redskins.

Washington
is simply not a good football team and the Falcons fought hard against the
Saints in the dome on Monday night.

Arizona

@ Chicago

– I’d stay away from this one
since the Cardinals have been up and down this season. I will pick the Bears to
win this game at home, but would not trust them in survivor.

Baltimore

@ Cincinnati

– Avoid this one. Ravens look for
revenge, though, and I like them on the road.

Houston

@ Indianapolis

– Colts look to keep the
undefeated streak going, but divisional game keeps me away. Colts win.

Kansas City

@ Jacksonville

– Don’t touch this game with
mediocre teams, but the Jaguars will come out on top. Don’t put too much stock
in the Jaguar loss last weekend as those AFC South games between the trio of

Houston,

Jacksonville and

Tennessee are always
tough to pick.

Miami

@ New England

– New England should win at home, but the way

Miami is playing lately, I’m staying away.
I’ll pick the Patriots at home to win.

Green Bay

@

Tampa

Bay

– The Packers will rebound this
weekend, but always leery of the road teams.

Carolina

@ New Orleans

– Saints are always an option in the dome, but you saw how

Atlanta played them on Monday Night Football, so don’t take a chance in a divisional game. These teams know each other
well.

Detroit

@ Seattle


Seattle plays
well at home with Matt Hasselbeck under center. While that was not the case against

Arizona in Week 6, I still like them with the 12th
man against

Detroit.
They’re a option this week.

San Diego

@ New York Giants

– Don’t touch the Giants right
now. Their season is on the line at home against the Chargers. I’ll take Big
Blue to win this one, but do not have much confidence in that.

Tennessee

@ San Francisco

San Francisco
played a tight game with the Colts last weekend and I don’t expect the Titans
to win two in a row after starting off 0-6. The 49ers win and they’re an option for
your survivor pool.

Dallas

@

Philadelphia

– NFC East battle.

Ill give the edge to the
home team.

Pittsburgh

@ Denver

– This should be a tough,
hard-fought Monday nighter. The Broncos are home underdogs and I always like
them. Give me

Denver
at home.

Survivor Pool Options:

In this
order:

Atlanta

– Best team in this group and they’re home.

Seattle

– Love them at Qwest Field against the traveling
Lions.

Green Bay

– Road team, but

Tampa is bad and the Packers showed
life late last week.

Jacksonville

Maurice Jones-Drew should run wild, but
the Jaguars’ inconsistency puts them here.

San Francisco

– They’re only one game out of
first so look for them to keep heads high after tough loss in Indianapolis.
