2014 NFL Picks Week 9

So-so picking during Week 9, as I finished at 9-6. A lot of games came down to the wire, as you'll see below. My overall percent dropped every so slightly to 66.7% (down from 67%). I had 4 upset picks last week, and was successful on only 1, bringing my season total to 10-12. As an Eagles fan I was happy to see my Pick of the Week, Dallas, lose to Washington. I knew I should have stayed away from a division game, but alas I am 6-2 overall for POTW.

Like I said, I incorrectly picked several games that were decided in the last minutes or even seconds of the game. This included Baltimore losing to Cincinnati by 3, Tampa Bay losing by 6 to Minnesota in OT, Seattle beating Carolina by 4, Philadelphia (unfortunately) falling to Arizona by 4, and finally Washington upsetting Dallas by a field goal in OT. The only other loss for me was the Green Bay/New Orleans game, which kept the Saints in the division race. Let's see if Week 9 has any easier games to pick:

Thursday, 8:30pm
New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers
Sunday, 1pm
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Cleveland Browns
New York Jets at Kansas City Chiefs
