PFT’s Week Four picks

It’s harder then ever to predict the outcome of NFL games. Or maybe we just stink. Regardless, MDS and I had a do-the-opposite 7-9 showing in Week Three. The putrid performances put MDS at 25-23 for the season, and yours truly at 24-24. We’ll try to improve (and likely fail) in Week Four, where we…

Last night’s Bills-Jets game ended in a 37-31 win for New York, an outcome that carries with it a sense that the Bills weren’t blown off the field. Truth be told, they were. But for a pair of fluky long touchdown passes and a right-place, right-time fumble recovery that became another score, the Bills would…
