Week 4 game predictions

After an awful week in Week 2 when I got only six right, I at least rebounded somewhat with 11 right last week. Of course, I did miss the Dolphins pick for the third straight week, as last week was the first time I'd picked them to lose this season. I can't win there.

Last week's record: 11-5
Season record: 26-21

Note: I changed my pick from Cincinnati to Cleveland prior to Sunday's games due to Carson Palmer's injury.

Browns over Bengals - The Browns have their problems, but Derek Anderson should be able to outplay a Bengals team that will be without Carson Palmer.

Packers over Buccaneers - In the Battle of the Bays, I think the one from up north is simply the better team.

Panthers over Falcons - The Panthers will rebound from their first loss of the season.

Titans over Vikings - A tough game to call because you don't know which Minnesota team will show up, but Tennessee is very good right now and better at quarterback than they've been in a few years.

Jaguars over Texans - Houston's quarterback situation is messy and the Jaguars are the better team.

Broncos over Chiefs - They're playing the Chiefs. Enough said.

Saints over 49ers - The Saints played the Broncos well last week and I see them winning the shootout this time around.

Jets over Cardinals - A tough pick between two good offenses, so I have to go with the home team.

Chargers over Raiders - I just can't see the Raiders' offense keeping up.

Bills over Rams - The Bills made it close last week against Oakland, but they'd have no excuse for losing to St. Louis.

Cowboys over Redskins - Divisional games like this are always tough, but Dallas is playing as well as anyone right now.

Eagles over Bears - Not to go all Joe Morgan on you, but I don't think the Bears are consistent enough to beat the Eagles.

Steelers over Ravens - The Steelers rebound on Monday night against the rookie Joe Flacco.
