Predicting the winners have never been easy, but the 2013 season seems to be extremely difficult.   I limped home with 9 wins, better but still a long way to go.  The Giants and Steelers are both now 0-4, can you pick the Giants to win against Philly?  At least Pittsburgh is off, so we don't have to try and analyze them.  And as soon as you give up on the Bills they storm back with a win against the defending Super Bowl Ravens.

The baseball playoffs give us two Sunday night games this week..The Oakland A's playoff game is forcing the NFL to slate the San Diego-Raiders game for an 11:30 p.m. kickoff on Sunday.  Houston and San Francisco play the first Sunday night game at the regular time.  Speaking of meltdowns, how do you feel about the Texans after blowing a 20-6 lead in the 4th quarter.

An important tip when making your picks, don't forget to select the tiebreaker points for Monday night's game.

This can be the difference in winning or losing, just choose the total points both teams will score in the Monday Night game.  There was just a one point difference between 1st and 2nd this past week.
