Once again, this week has started off with my picks going 0-1. The Pittsburgh Steelers traveled into Tennessee and very well should have left with a victory over the Titans. Yeah, that did not happen at all and it started my picks off in the hole. Time to see if there can possibly be a rebound of some sort, but that hasn’t proven to be the case at all yet.

Some games appear easier this week, but “gimme” picks are nowhere to be found in this 2012 NFL season.

Bye Weeks: Chicago, New Orleans, Carolina, Jacksonville

Thursday Night Football: Tennessee Titans at Pittsburgh Steelers

No-one was expecting the Titans to go out there without Jake Locker and take down the Steelers, but that was exactly what happened. Pittsburgh just cannot get their act together this season.

Pick: Steelers

Winner: Titans

Oakland Raiders at Atlanta Falcons

The black and silver really isn’t playing all that bad, but the Raiders will have to give everything they have this week. They’ve got to be healthy and ready because the Falcons are a talented team that just keeps finding ways to win behind Matt Ryan. The same thing will happen this weekend.

Pick: Falcons

Cincinnati Bengals at Cleveland Browns

Cincinnati has its ups and downs, but the Browns really only have one of those.

Pick: Bengals

St. Louis Rams at Miami Dolphins

Have to give the Rams some credit for that win last week as they took down the unbeaten Cardinals and by a large margin. Miami will have flashes now and again, but not enough.

Pick: Rams

Indianapolis Colts at New York Jets

Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets are imploding. The Colts came out last week and got one of the biggest wins of their young, but new, era.

Pick: Colts

Detroit Lions at Philadelphia Eagles

What on earth happened to the Lions?

Pick: Eagles

Dallas Cowboys at Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore is sitting at 4-1, but is flying under the radar for some reason and they shouldn’t. No-one should underestimate the talent that the Ravens have on both sides of the ball. Dallas is a mixed bag, and it will be surprising if Tony Romo can survive the defense of Baltimore.

Pick: Ravens

Kansas City Chiefs at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Both teams have one win, and didn’t seem to get it by playing all too masterfully. Someone has to get their second victory here, and it isn’t going to be the Chiefs, who will be playing without Matt Cassel.

Pick: Bucs

Buffalo Bills at Arizona Cardinals

Expect a rebound by Kevin Kolb and the Cards this week.

Pick: Cards

New England Patriots at Seattle Seahawks

This could turn into one of the more interesting games of the week, and really could belong to either team. Russell Wilson is doing well with what he has in Seattle, and he’s playing past his expected ability. Tom Brady and the Patriots are hoping to look more like themselves than they have so far this season.

Pick: Pats

New York Giants at San Francisco 49ers

Since losing to Minnesota, the 49ers have outscored two opponents 79-3. Eli Manning and the Giants have a good team, but they’re going to be outmatched this weekend by one of the top teams in the league.

Pick: Niners

Minnesota Vikings at Washington Redskins

RG3 will be playing right after a concussion. There isn’t much else that the team really has.

Pick: Vikes

Green Bay Packers at Houston Texans

The Pack is 2-3 and heading into a weekend where they face the unbeaten Texans. Green Bay has not looked very together so far this season, and it will be hard for them to pull one out against Houston. It just isn’t going to happen.

Pick: Texans

Monday Night Football: Denver Broncos at San Diego Chargers

Peyton Manning still appears to be working out some kinks and shaking off some rust. Philip Rivers looked good last weekend, but he got outgunned by a superior quarterback. Expect the same in this week’s finale.

Pick: Broncos
