Steelers @ Titans
Code Red: Poor Titans, they looked mildly promising on offense before Locker went down. Steelers win.

Iggins!: If the Tits had Locker, I’d take them. Unfortunately, they do not. Steelers win.

Mrs. Code Red: Steelers.

Rams @ Dolphins
Iggins!: The Fins have a surprisingly effective rookie QB and Reggie Bush, which is good, because the Ram pass defense is much better than their run D. The Fin defense has even been stepping it up. I’ll take Miami to win.

Code Red: Yeah, the Dolphins are getting pressure and they should be able to put up more points than Sam Bradford. Dolphins win.

Mrs. Code Red: Dolphins.

Lions @ Eagles
Code Red: This is a tough one. Vick is on his last legs, but I think the Lions defense is bad enough that he'll be okay against them, and Stafford could make some big mistakes against that secondary. Eagles win.

Iggins!: Vick’ll probably finally get knocked out in this one, but Foles won’t be the biggest downgrade ever. If the Eagles would just hand the damn ball off they’d be fine. Just fire Andy Reid, Philly! Get a coach who likes to run the ball! Eagles win because Detroit is damn bad.

Mrs. Code Red: Lions. Vick'll cost them this one.

Bengals @ Browns
Iggins!: The Browns are right on the cusp of being a good team and the Bengals are on the downswing (13 points against Miami last week is troubling). This game is always weird. Browns win.

Code Red: I just can't gamble on Cleveland yet. Bengals win.

Mrs. Code Red: Bengals.

Chiefs @ Buccaneers
Code Red: Woof. Bad teams. The Bucs defense has been good, at least, except against the pass, which the Chiefs are not good at. Bucs win?

Iggins!: Can I make a conditional pick? If Cassel plays, Chiefs lose. Doesn’t play, Chiefs win. No? No conditional picks? Fine. Bucs win, because God hates Kansas City for some reason.

Mrs. Code Red: Buccaneers.

Colts @ Jets
Iggins!: Just start Tebow already, Jets. Colts win.

Code Red: It's really the only thing that'll make you watchable. Even if it won't make you better. Colts win.

Mrs. Code Red: Colts win.

Raiders @ Falcons
Code Red: Yeah, well, okay. Falcons win.

Iggins!: The great thing here is that the Falcons just don’t play anyone of note almost all year. They could go 16-0 and their best win would be against Denver or the Giants. They don’t play Houston, Chicago, New England, Green Bay, San Francisco, Baltimore, etc. It’s incredible. Falcons win.

Mrs. Code Red: Falcons win.

Cowboys @ Ravens:
Iggins!: The battle of inconsistency! Please just run the ball, Ravens. This Joe Flacco shit is killing me. Ravens win.

Code Red: Should be one of those “no, YOU win, we don't want to games”. Ravens win.

Mrs. Code Red: Cowboys.

Patriots @ Seahawks
Code Red: Could definitely see the Patriots falling into the same trap that snared the Packers, but their protection is better and their run defense (aka, the only part you need to be concerned about against the Seahawks) has been pretty decent. Patriots win.

Iggins!: Yeah, this could end up being pretty low-scoring, but Seattle may not be able to put any points at all. Patriots win.

Mrs. Code Red: Patriots.

Bills @ Cardinals
Iggins!: Cardinals at 5-1? Cardinals at 5-1. Cardinals win.

Code Red: Woof. Cardinals at 5-1. Cardinals win.

Mrs. Code Red: Cardinals.

Vikings @ Redskins
Code Red: If RGIII is healthy, I want to take the Redskins here. But he clearly was concussed and I can't imagine the NFL allowing him to start. Vikings win.

Iggins!: Why would you take the ‘skins if RG3 wasn’t hurt? The Vikings have a great defense and Ponder+Harvin+Peterson are moving the ball very effectively. Vikings win.

Mrs Code Red. Vikings.

Giants @ 49ers
Iggins!: The 49ers like to play from ahead… and the Giants keep falling behind in games… 49ers win.

Code Red: Meh. Giants.

Mrs. Code Red: Giants.

Packers @ Texans
Code Red: the Packers offensive line is just allowing teams to destroy Rodgers right now, and it's hard to imagine them suddenly going off against that Texans defense. Texans win, Green Bay in trouble.

Iggins!: hehehehe Packers at 2-4? Is there any greater joy? Texans win, and, by proxy, Bears win.

Mrs Code Red: Texans.

Broncos @ Chargers
Iggins!: Peyton is tired of having to mount comebacks. The Broncos have the capability to destroy every AFC West team they play. I’ll take Denver to win.

Code Red: I imagine the Chargers will go up 14-0 on Ryan Matthews TDs before Matthews cracks an inappropriate joke and Norv benches him for 6 games to think about what he's done. Peyton leads comeback. Broncos win.

Mrs. Code Red: Broncos.
