I suppose I should have made my picks on Friday at the latest but was tired and busy. Then, our TV goes “kerplunk” on opening weekend for football. Not that I have much time in the afternoon, after all, I work some on Sunday. Sunday Night Football, though, is a great way to end a busy day. I am worn out (mainly because I am an introvert) and falling asleep on the couch to football is so relaxing.
Plus, Jets against the Cowboys is a great game. I am not a huge Jets fan but like to root for local teams (excepting Yankees in baseball). And….I love to root against the Cowboys. It’s a sign of love for my friends. There are so many Cowgirl fans and I know so many, that I love it when they fail.
I was listening to the radio last night and loved it. Assumed the Jets would lose. They should have lost. The main difference (besides luck) is that the Jets have won a few comebacks/close games in the last two seasons, as well as playing some tight playoff games. Dallas, with all their talent haven’t done much of that. Poor Romo.
Anyway, my picks:
Green Bay Packers
New Orleans Saints
Wild Cards: Washington Redskins, Atlanta Falcons
New Jersey Jets
San Diego Chargers
Wild Cards: New England Patriots, Houston Texans
There are surprises each season. I took some risks for fun. Who do you expect to make the playoffs?
