Paul’s pro pigskin prognostications week 7

Last week a slide to 7-7 56-31 for the season.
Ans now for this weeks slate

San Diego @ Buffalo: The Chargers stepped up last week with their best effort of the season against the Pats. Buffalo spent the week off licking their wounds after getting blown out by the Cardianls.But this week the Bills will be in the very friendly confines of Rch Stadium. Couple that with the bye week and I expect a great effort from Buffalo. Defense and special teams will tell the tale. Bills 23 Chargers 17

Minnesota @ Chicago: A huge game in the black and blue deivison. The winner here will be in a first place tie at the least. Both of these teams havve struggled to pick up momentum during the season/ The Bears come off as the team a touch more consistent.. Bears 17 VIkes 14

Pittsburgh @ Cincinnati: The Bangles may have a better chance at winning this contest than the Bengals, especially against a Steeler squad coming off a bye week. Steelers 28 Bengals 20

Tennessee @ Kansas City: The Chiefs are struggling mightily but have the physical talent to win this contest. The Titans though have much steadier leadership and a better defense. Arrowhead is never a easy place to play, but the Titans will get done. Titans 24 Chiefs 21

Dallas @ St.Louis: The Cowboys are singing the blues with Tony Romo on the shelf for a few weeks and Pac Man Jones on the way to running himself out of the league, again. The Rams somehow beat the sleeping Skins last week, Dallas will be paying a bit more attention. The ageless Brad Johnson will find a way to get the Cowboys thru, though it will not be pretty. Cowboys 16 Rams 10

Baltimore @ MIami: This should be a real slobberknocker between two teams that are pretty good on the defensive side of the football. The Dolphins though come off as having more consistency on the offensive side of the ball.
Dolphins 19 Ravens 14

San Francisco @ NY Giants: The Niners cant stop the run, the Giants are leading the league in rushing and also will be in a foul mood after gettting roughed up in Cleveland on MNF. It all spells a bad day in the Jersey swamps for San Fran.
Giants 30 Niners 14

New Orleans @ Carolina: The Panthers really stunk up the joint last week in Tampa. Look for them to rebound against the up and down Saints. The Saints will get their offensive licks in, but the pourous Saints defense will be their undoing. Panthers on a late Kasey FG. Panthers 31 Saints 28

Detroit @ Houston: The Lions are banged up and bummed out, the Texans should have a little extra bounce in their collectivbe step folling last weeks dramatic win over the Dolphins. Texans 27 Lions 13

NY Jets @ Oakland: This matchup always brings memories of the infamous “Heidi’ game back in 1968, alas no preemptions this time around, though the struggling Raiders might be able to use Heidi on a offense that has been averaging only 16 points a contest. Brett Farve should also have a field day against a struggling Raiders defense. Wonder if Al Davis will fire another coach after this one. Jets 28 Raiders 10

Indy @ Green Bay: The Packers righted the ship with a win last week in Seattle. But the Colts seem to be coming together after a sluggish start as Peyton Manning is finally rounding into form after what turned out to be multiple knee operations in the offseason. His leadership should make the difference. Colts 27 Packers 24

Cleveland @ Washington: The Skins got caught napping against the Rams while the Browns bumped off the Giants to get themselves feeling a little happy about themselves. But what they did is get the Skins attention. Skins 27 Browns 16

Seattle 2 Tampa: Look for the struggling Seahawks woes to continue against the rugged Tampa D and the balanced Bucs offense. Tampa 31 Seattle 14

Denver @ New England: The Patriots are just not going to be the same old Pats this season, unless your talking about the pre-Brady era. Jay Cutler on the other hand is developing into one of the best young QB’s in the game and should rebound against a Pats team that looked long in the tooth last week against San Diego. Lastly Denver just historically has the Pats number and in the paraphrase Led Zeppelin, the song should remain the same. Denver 28 New England 21
