Find out which teams are going to win each of the NFL‘s week 9 match ups with the Armchair Quarterback’s Guide to the NFL.
Welcome to the week 9 edition of the Armchair Quarterback’s Guide to the NFL. This weekly feature will give you a preview and prediction for each game on the NFL schedule. Those predictions are based on previous head to head match ups, how the teams’ strengths and weaknesses match up, what the numbers say, and may have a little of my own gut instincts mixed in as well.
Last week upset wins (that I hadn’t predicted) by teams like the Redskins, Saints, and Steelers dropped my record on the week to just 8-7. That’s still winning, but I’m shooting for a much better percentage than that. My overall record for the season stands at 77-43-1. That’s just behind the top prognosticators at some of the major sports websites around. Also, I finally came up on the losing end of my “Survivor Pool Lock of the Week” pick when Dallas lost to Washington. So if you were using those picks in your office survivor pool, I apologize. Since I would be technically eliminated from a true survivor pool, I’ll henceforth simply refer to my weekly lock pick as the “Armchair QB Lock of the Week”. I’ll keep switching up the teams I select for this pick in case some of you are still alive in your pools.
Now let’s get to this week’s games. There are some games that look like sure bets but there are also several games that should be very competitive. Let’s start things off with the Thursday night match up…..
