These are my rankings. No formula, just one man's opinion (for whatever it is worth).
Please Note: I am not a scientist or any other form of industry professional. Do not take your rent, house or car payments, or other important bills (like utilities, food) and bet them based on my predictions.
(#1) Minnesota at Carolina
(#2) Indianapolis at Jacksonville
From last night on Thursday Night Football, it was Colts 35- 31. Jags needed it worse. The Colts have everything wrapped up and could rest some key people the rest of the way, but evidently the Colts players have convinced management to play for undefeated.
Dallas at (#3) New Orleans
(#5) Cincinnati at (#4) San Diego
San Diego, but this could be an upset if the Bengals get fired up in spite of the death of their WR.
Oakland at (#6) Denver
(#7) New England at Buffalo
(#8) Arizona at Detroit
Chicago at (#9) Baltimore
San Francisco at (#10) Philadelphia
Philly, but they must guard against complacency. SF has risen up on occasion and played some good football.
NY Giants at Washington
NYG, but only because I have to make a call on this one. The Skins have been playing better and could cherish the spoiler role.
Miami at Tennessee
Tennessee should take this one.
Sorry I cannot go into more detail about why I ranked them the way I did and the reason I picked them to win, at least not right now. Time hasn't been on my side lately.
But now, it's up to you to tell me where I am wrong.
