Im 5 games out of first in a 20 person pick'em league...Ive identified 6 games that will determine the winner this week. And potentially get me toward the top...Who would you pick??

Steelers @ Dolphins...I almost always pick against the Fins unless I am absolutely sure there gunna win. Than if the Fins lose is a bit of a consolation prize. Lean: Steelers

Redskins @ Bears...I really like the Skins this year. I think they are tough on both sides of the ball and the Bears are a fraud, but at home. Lean: Redskins

Rams @ Buccs...Are the Rams for real?? Are the Buccs any good? Rams havent played many away games. Buccs get my lean because they are at home. Lean: Buccs

Pats @ Chargers...Pats seem to be on a bit of a role. The Chargers are struggling and are in desperate need of a win to keep pace in the AFC West. Vegas likes the Chargers (+3), which is a bit fishy to me and is making me second guess myself. Lean: Pats

Raiders @ Broncos...Denver looked tough against a very good Jets team. Broncos at home should be the lean. But if Gradkowski plays I think Oakland has a shot at knocking off their division rival. Denver has been a pass heavy team and the Raiders play the pass pretty well. Lean: Broncos (Raiders if Gradkowski Plays)

Vikings @ Packers...Im gunna be at this game and it should be a dandy. The Vikings seem to have things heading in the right direction. But the Packers are getting healthy. Not to mention they have a chip on their shoulder having lost to Favre twice last season. I think Aaron Rodgers is gunna be hungry, and should be able to exploit a poor Vikings pass Offense (What happend to Jared Allen this season). AP scares me, he should be able to run wild on the Pack, but in the end Rodgers gets it done. Lean: Packers


Help me out guys what do you think??

Fins- Gotta go with Miami here..The home team and I think they are just due for a win against the steelers..
Skins- Their pass rush will be too much for the Bears..Look for Orakpo to have a big day.
Rams- Somethign about Sam Bradford against that D that I like...The Rams have a D that is going to get after the Bucs and cause some Turnovers as well.
Pats- The Pats are just way too good for the Chargers..Chargers are having a bad year...and clearly losing Jackson was huge along with Mcneil.
Denver- I'll take Kyle Orton over any of the Raiders Qb's

What are your reasons for picking the Fins. I know your gut says Fins, and so does mine. But my head says Steelers. I think if we can find a way to run the ball we can win. But do you think that happens. Rams have won 1 road game in the past 3 yrs.

Well I just thinkt he phins are due for a win against the Steelers..Steelers are a good team tho..So I could see your reasoning for picking them as well..
But I saw this stat....Steelers are 5 and 11 under Tomlin as Road favorites..

Thats a huge stat..also Steelers have same huge games coming up and may be looking passed us...

I like our Matchup on the outside with Marshall..Henne has to be careful not to stare down rec's as Troy is all over the place..
But I am going with Miami..Would I put on it? No..

Rams are really hot right now..even tho they are on the road..Tampa is not much of a home field advantage...

I like the Rams passing game..And I think the Rams will pin the Bucs ears back early on.
