4caster Frank's Weekly Picks

Last Week: 9-5 .643
Season Total: 74-70 .514



Cardinals 20 Browns 17

Stinker of the Week: With the their top rusher suspended and their top receiver suddenly placed on waivers, along with their QB situation still unsettled the Browns are a team in complete turmoil. Look for the Cardinals to come in and pull off the upset.


Saints 28 Falcons 24

Coming off their shocking road win over the Giants the Falcons should not be considered a push over especially against their top rivals. They should at the very least be able to keep the game close if not win the game.


Dolphins 16 Ravens 0

The only chance the Ravens have of winning this game with 3rd string QB Anthony Wright is to score on defense and shut down the Dolphins offense, because they will not be able to score on the desperate Dolphins defense who are in dire need for a win.


Bills 24 Texans 20

With QB Drew Beldsoe struggling the Bill shave slipped below .500 after a solid 2-0 start. They should get back to .500 this week, but it will be a struggle against a Texans team play solid football over the past few weeks.


Titans 38 Jaguars 7

The Chiefs may be undefeated but the Titans might be the best team in the NFL, as QB Steve McNair is putting up MVP numbers. Expect them to cruise against this week, as they slice and dice the Jaguars at home.


Chiefs 45 Bengals 17

A week after Simeon Rice of the Bucs got egg on his face after guaranteeing a win and losing Bengals WR Chad Johnson has guaranteed that the 4-5 Bengals would beat the undefeated Chiefs. Following the game he will be a dangling Chad as the Chiefs cruise to 10-0.


Giants 20 Eagles 17

Upset of the Week: After last week the Eagles could not be any higher with a comeback win over the Packers in Lambeau Field and the Giants could not be any lower after losing to the Falcons at home. What does this mean? Giants pull off the upset because it defies logic, and the Giants always defy logic.


Rams 34 Bears 20

DA Bears continue to struggle as they are blown apart by the Rams and QB Marc Bulger who will be looking to recover form 2 poor games, and RB Marshall Faulk who will like to have a big game to prove he is back and healthy.


Panthers 24 Redskins 10

The Panthers continue to play strong football by scalping the Redskins as their defense hassles bewildered Redskins QB Patrick Ramsay all day in an easy win at home.


Colts 38 Jets 17

The Colts get a measure or revenge for their humiliating 41-0 loss in the playoff to the Jets by taking down the Jets and whipping out what little playoff hopes they have left.


Broncos 30 Chargers 17

With the return of starting QB Jake Plummer the Broncos will be looking to get back on track by unplugging the Chargers at home. Look for the Broncos to pull away in the 4th Quarter as Chargers 40-year QB Doug Flutie gets winded in the altitude.


Seahawks 31 Lions 13

Look for the Seahawks to rebound easily after a stunning loss to the Redskins on the road by beating the Lions at home as the Lions extend their road losing streak to 22 games pulling to within 1 of the dubious record.


Vikings 37 Raiders 10

After a 6-0 start the Vikings have lost 3 in a row, but help is on the way as they face the defending AFC Champion Oakland Raiders who this season hold one of the worst record in the NFL at 2-7. Look for the Vikings to rebound as the Raiders continue to sink into despair.


Buccaneers 20 Packers 10

Game of the Week: In a battle between two division favorites struggling at 4-5, look for the Buccaneers to keep their playoff hopes alive by hassling Packers QB Brett Favre, who is playing with a broken thumb all day.


Patriots 24 Cowboys 10

The Cowboys come to earth a bit a Patriots Coach Bill Belichick become the teacher against his mentor Bill Parcells who has turned around the Cowboys faster then anyone could have imagined.


49ers 31 Steelers 17

The 49ers have been strong at home all season and facing they pathetic Steelers secondary they should be able to cruise at home and plop themselves right into the playoff chase at 5-5, while the Steelers hopes to take a hit as they fall to 3-7.
