How did you do in week 8?
Did you predict the Steelers would stay undefeated? How about the Packers’ loss to the Vikings?
Did the Chargers’ collapse surprise you, or did you pick the Broncos? What about the Giants almost beating Tom Brady and the Buccaneers?
Week 8 had plenty of nail-biters, but week 9 has some electric games, too.
I think that there is a lot of potential for upsets this week, and there are some slam dunks that should be easy wins.
With a combined record of 20-8 over the last two weeks, I’m looking to make it three-straight weeks of solid selections.
Without further ado, here are our week 9 picks!
