Philly Joe’s Sure NFL Picks For Week 13

Joe “Philly Joe” Corrigan, one of our more colorful characters in the Teller High Country,  is TMJ’s  Guest Predictor  of key NFL Action. Yes, with the up and down state of the Denver Broncos, more viewers are checking out other teams to enhance their football experience (Just in case we don’t make the playoffs.)  Here are “Philly Joe’s” preliminary predictions for some Week 13 games of the season and a few observations.   These were actually made prior to the recent results, but Philly Joe  (yes, a strong fan of the Philadelphia Eagles) has that Nostradamus touch of looking into the future and being right on most occasions. If you want to argue with Joe, then you can probably run into him at McGinty’s Pub in  Divide.

Well, I hope everyone  had a grand Thanksgiving  and have adjusted there scales appropriately.  After a terrible week on my picks and I admit it, and many of Yours too, let’s give this another try for Week 13.

This week may be a little easier  with bigger  point spreads. But anybody can beat anybody on any given Sunday. Who said that?

Sorry Detroit. you lost again on Thanksgiving, but look at the bright  side. You can trade your upcoming  first-round pick for  five or six picks, or maybe a whole  new team. And how bought dem’ (Dallas) cowboys yuck, yuck (who lost another close one, this time to the Las Vegas Raiders.) That’s the sound eagles make when they laugh. I’m going back to my pretty sure picks, so here we go.

Dallas Cowboys 7-4 at New Orleans Saints 5-6

Dallas  needs to get a little concerned.  Their  “for sure to clinch  the NFC East ” status is suddenly in question. New Orleans also goes by N.O. Do I think they’ll  mark  the playoffs? NO. Going for the Boys again.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 7 -3 at Atlanta  4-6. Should be a no Brainer.

Arizona Cardinals 9-2 at Chicago Bears 4-7

Are the Arizona cardinals 9-2 the Best team in the NFC ?

I think so. Chicago 4-7 better have enjoyed their recent Thanksgiving  victory, cause they ain’t beating Arizona.

Philadelphia Eagles 5-6 at  New York Jets 2-8. Never thought  the birds had a chance  at the playoffs  but now I do. I’ll take the win as my 72 birthday present. (Happy Birthday, Joe, even though you are a Philadelphia Eagles’ fan. Isn’t that the city that threw snowballs at Santa?)

Upset Pick.

New England Patriots 7-4 at Buffalo Bills 7 -4. Some already have the Pats winning out, taking the division  and proclaiming them to be Super Bowl bound. Not me. Buffalo  has there back against  the wall and need this one. Go bills.

I’ll  be at McGinty’s  every Sunday for at least  the first round of games.  Come and talk football have a great  lunch and buy me a beer.
