NFL Week 7

Last week, which was abounding in toss ups, I was 6-8, my first losing week of the year. I'm 55-33 for the season. ESPN experts here and here.

On the winless team front- two teams fell from the ranks of the winless last week. As devastated as I was with the Rams victory at Washington, I was overcome with ecstasy when I learned the Lions had dealt Roy Williams to the Cowboys.

When teams start dealing their star players, and their heretofore starting quarterbacks are out for the year, its always a good sign that a team is in the process of giving up. And if they've given up, then you have to believe an 0-16 season is not only a possibility but is actually within grasp.

Except there is one little problem this week- the Lions get to play Houston. I'll be biting my nails watching the scoreboard today.

After this week, the road to perfection gets much easier. In fact, they really don't have a bad team left on their schedule. I'm really starting to believe in them.

Our other winless team is flying under the radar. I have hardly mentioned Cincinnati going 0-16, mainly because I've believed there is no way that could even be possible. Could it?

Buffalo.
Chicago.
Pittsburgh.
Tennessee.
Dallas.
Miami.
Giants.
Carolina.
Houston.
Jets.
Indianapolis.
Washington.
Tampa Bay.
New England- Monday.

I find it interesting that you picked Dallas without Tony Romo.

Barb!

I have no idea why I picked them to beat anybody right now, with or without Romo. They are the most over-rated team in history, led by the most over-rated QB.
