Week 11 in the NFL

Alex and Chris pick the weekend's NFL games and offer insight on their differences.

Alex: Ok, so, this might be a hope/prayer, but I also think Chad Johnson is due for his... I'm picking Cincy over Philly. They've had close games vs. the NFC East and I think they're at Cincy.

Chris: I think that's too dangerous, I think Philly is pissed and doesn't want to lose ground to some AFC CENTRAL opponent this year. I'm talking late '90s vintage Bengals. These aren't playoff Bengals anymore

Alex: Haha. When were they?

Chris: '80s and a spurt with Palmer.

Alex: And then in comes Kitna.

Alex: Ok, next, you have KC, who is due, I agree, but I think the Saints firepower is just way too high.

Chris: I think somehow KC escapes despite a 400 yard passing performance from Brees. Again.

Alex: Does Drew Brees break Marino's record for most yards in a season? I think he will.

Chris: Sure, why not. Small victories.

Alex: Haha. I also think, in spite of this, 8-8 for the Saints.

Chris: The Cowboys need every team to suck, so this is a great chance to get space.

Alex: Ok, finally. I picked Joe Flacco to win. Over, of all people, NYG.

Chris: And you know what that means. Shame on you! Shame. On. You.

Alex: I'm just saying. Maybe he can break the streak.

Chris: Maybe. Part of me picked NYG because I think they're better and scarier, but the other part wants them as cocky as possible for the playoffs. Not confident, but cocky.

Alex: And I picked Baltimore, because, I'll tell ya, Ray Ray is playing lights out this year. Ended RaShard Mendenhall's season. Had 2 picks last week. I'm just expecting them to play up to the Giants level.

Chris: Did he show up at your dorm door in CS?

Alex: No. Of course not. And even if said linebacker did, I would not be able to disclose that information.

Chris: Hahah.

Alex: Moving on... and no longer talking about Ray... who is a great, great linebacker, and person, who would never murder anyone...

Alex: You have Chicago, and I have GB. I'm sorry, Orton is still hurt, and Rexy... not that sexy.

Chris: I have on good word that Brian Urlacher used to be a nerd and suffered from self-esteem issues, but a change in his daily routine has given him a confidence boost, and I expect that boost to overcome any deficiencies from quarterbacking.

Alex: Hahaha. Did you sign a deal with Old Spice Swagger?

Chris: Yes, and I've been feeling great after making the switch.

Alex: Have you gained 200 pounds of muscle yet?

Chris: No, I just started. Check back in the playoffs.

Alex: Ok. Wow... So that was our last difference of the week. Pretty straightforward this week, I guess.

Chris: I think so.

Alex: Roethlis-predictions?

Chris: Roethlis-Super Nintendo, basically the greatest thing ever, especially against some yo-yo, unpredictable team.

Alex: Wow. Going beyond food products.

Chris: Whoops, forgot that.

Alex: It's ok. There are people out there that eat electronics. There's that guy in the Guiness Book of Records.

Chris: Roethlis-Super Nintendo Birthday Cake.

Alex: Hahaha. I think I agree with you, so this week I'm going Roethlis-steak tar tare. Sophisticated, and generally agree to be great, at least by the few able to experience it.

Other picks this week

Atlanta over Denver
