Patrick Lynch, Jaxin Osinski, and Andrew Hanson

Overall Records

Andrew- 64-33

Patrick- 59-38

Jaxin- 59-38

Texans vs. Lions

Andrew- Texans pull this one off.

Patrick- Texans; still lacking but the Lions are in a rough spot right now.

Jaxin- Deshaun Watson is a dude and I think he carries against a bad Lions team. 

Washington vs. Cowboys

Andrew- I think the Football Team picks up the win, could go either way because both of these are dumpster fire organizations. 

Patrick- Cowboys; It could honestly go either way but Andy Dalton is back so I have more confidence.

Jaxin- With Andy Dalton back I like the Cowboys this week.

Ravens vs. Steelers

Andrew- Ravens are struggling and we know Lamar turns into Terrell Pryor against good defenses so I’m going with the Steelers.

Patrick- Steelers; Ravens aren’t good enough to break the undefeated streak.

Jaxin- Biggest game of the week but I think Pitt stays undefeated.

Raiders vs. Falcons

Andrew- Raiders run all over the Falcons terrible defense.

Patrick- Raiders; Falcons defense is terrible.

Jaxin- Bounce back game for the Raiders.

Chargers vs. Bills

Andrew- I think the Bills defense gives Herbert his most problems all year and pulls off this win.

Patrick- Bills; Chargers will have an early lead and then choke.

Jaxin- Bills stay hot off the bye week.

Giants vs. Bengals

Andrew- Giants I guess.

Patrick- Bengals; Burrow out is a huge loss but i think the team rallies and wins.

Jaxin- Without Burrow I don’t think the Bengals win another game, I think Danny Dimes and the Giants take hold of the NFC East this week.

Titans vs. Colts

Andrew- Both teams coming off a big win but I gotta give it to the Colts.

Patrick- Titans; I think they pull it out in the rematch.

Jaxin- Both teams are playing great it could go either way but I think Tennessee gets revenge.

Panthers vs. Vikings

Andrew- Vikings continue to play great.

Patrick- Vikings; They’ve been solid recently and I think they continue that trend.

Jaxin- Panthers have shown potential I think they get the win on the road.

Cardinals vs. Patriots

Andrew- I think the Cardinals barely win this one.

Patrick- Cardinals; Better team in almost every way.

Jaxin- Cardinals stomp the patriots after a tough loss last week.

Dolphins vs. Jets

Andrew- Dolphins, No explanation needed.

Patrick- Dolphins; No contest the Jets still suck.

Jaxin- Tua Time gets back on track.

Browns vs. Jaguars 

Andrew- Browns win with ease.

Patrick- Browns; Jaguars are under .500 so the Browns win.

Jaxin- Browns continue to be a sleeper team in the AFC and ge there eighth win.

Saints vs. Broncos

Andrew- Saints easily.

Patrick- Saints; Easiest prediction this week.

Jaxin- Saints dominate.

49ers vs. Rams

Andrew- Rams beat the injured Niners.

Patrick- Rams; Solid team and the Niners are still full of injuries.

Jaxin- Rams are a very underrated team I think they win big.

Chiefs vs. Buccaneers

Andrew- I think Mahomes lights it up this game and takes home the W.

Patrick- Chiefs; Brady can’t perform when the bright lights are on him this season.

Jaxin- Bucs are all over the place Mahomes and the Chiefs win easy.

Bears vs. Packers

Andrew- As long has MVS doesn’t see the field, Packers win.

Patrick- Packers; Another easy choice the Bears are atrocious.

Jaxin- Rodgers will be ready to go in prime time after a heartbreaking loss last week.

Seahawks vs. Eagles

Andrew- Seahawks dominate.

Patrick- Seahawks; Changed my mind this is the easiest pick this week.

Jaxin- Seahawks win against a Philly team that has been lost all season.
