picks PIGSKIN

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

The Wash­ing­ton Red­skins let us down last week with a ter­ri­ble out­ing against At­lanta, so let’s take a look at four games this Sun­day.

Detroit Lions (3-5) at Chicago Bears (5-3) – The Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde Lions are at Chicago where the Bears look play­off bound. Chicago QB Mitch Tru­bisky has been im­prov­ing ev­ery game and they’re at home. Bears by a TD. New Or­leans Saints (7-1) at Cincin­nati Ben­gals (5-3) – My buddy, Tom Mul­lally, has con­vinced me about his Saints and he’s right. New Or­leans has an ex­plo­sive pass­ing at­tack with Drew Brees and com­pany and they’re meet­ing the Ben­gals, which has the third­worst pass de­fence in the NFL. I can see a Saints rout. Mi­ami Dol­phins (5-4) at Green Bay Pack­ers (3-4-1) – The Fish com­ing North in No­vem­ber is not a wise bet. Pack­ers need this game in a big way and Rodgers gets the job done. Dal­las Cow­boys (3-5) at Philadel­phia Ea­gles (4-4) – The Cow­boys were aw­ful in los­ing to Ten­nessee, es­pe­cially com­ing of a bye week, and now they meet an Ea­gles club that’s get­ting healthy. As well, the Ea­gles just traded for multi-pur­pose speed re­ceiver Golden Tate and I ex­pect he and QB Car­son Wentz to click right off the bat. The Cow­boys faith­ful want head coach Ja­son Gar­rett fired, and it could hap­pen after an­other Dal­las loss. New Eng­land, LA Rams and LA Charg­ers all have soft games, so no ma­jor up­sets this week.
