Hey sports fans, T-Bone, Bruce and Chris here with our picks for the NFL slate this weekend.  We’re going to keep track of these for bragging rights, so we’ll keep you updated each week with who’s in the lead and who doesn’t know as much as they think they may.

Week eight was crazy and with some teams still facing some key injury problems week nine will be nothing short of that.  T-Bone won the week at 12-2, Bruce was just behind him 10-4, and Chris took a beating at 8-6.  T-Bone has regained the lead for the year at 72-46, Chris is 69-49, and Bruce is gaining ground at 67-51.  So as advertised here are our week nine picks.

Thursday Night Game

Chiefs @ Chargers: In one of the worst matchups in football history to be played at night the Chargers were able to pick up a win as well as all three of us to start the week.

1:00 Games

Panthers @ Redskins:  The Panthers did enough last week to make us all believe again, we will probably end up with egg on our face for this but, we’re all taking the Panthers.

Broncos @ Bengals:   Peyton Manning has certainly gotten his groove back this season and as T-Bone and Chris see it that will continue this week.  Bruce likes the upset Bengals.

Ravens @ Browns:  The Browns have one two of their last three heading into this week and the Ravens are coming off a bye.  T-Bone likes the Browns at home and Chris and Bruce like the Ravens after a week to prepare.

Cardinals @ Packers:  It seems like a long time ago when the Cardinals were 4-0 and the Packers were 2-3.  Things have certainly changed now and we all like the Packers to roll in this one.

Bears @ Titans:  The Bears barely escaped last weekend against Carolina with a win.  We don’t expect that this week, everybody is taking the Bears by a mile.

Dolphins @ Colts:  At the beginning of the season this is not I game I would have circled on the calendar but both of these teams are jockeying for a playoff spot.  This game will be a good one.  Bruce and Chris are going with the Colts, T-Bone has the Dolphins.

Lions @ Jaguars:  The Jaguars are 0-3 at home and have looked absolutely gruesome this week, the Lions will have no problem here, we are all three on board with Detroit.

Texans @ Bills:  Buffalo is dead last in the league against the run facing one of the best running teams in the NFL.  Everybody has Houston here.

4:00 Games

Buccaneers @ Raiders:  Don’t expect a whole lot of defense coming out of this matchup, neither team are very good at stopping anything.  T-Bone and Bruce are taking the home Raiders, Chris likes the Bucs here.

Vikings @ Seahawks:  The Seahawks are a different team when they play at home which is why Chris and T-Bone like them here.  Bruce is taking the Vikings to bounce back after last week’s loss.

Steelers @ Giants:  This is by far the best game coming out of the 4:00 time slot, it will probably come down to whoever has the ball last.  Chris and Bruce are going with the defending champs, while T-bone like the Steelers on the road.

Sunday Night Game

Cowboys @ Falcons:  Nobody expects the Falcons to go undefeated for the season and they will have to lose at some point, unfortunately for Dallas this is not that point.  Falcons all around here.

Monday Night Game

Eagles @ Saints: The Eagles came out and said the Michael Vick will get the start here after several bad games heading up to this.  We all don’t think it matters who is starting for the Eagles we’re taking the Saints here.
