Prognostication Bukakke, NFL Week 8

Mrs. Code Red: 46-24
Code Red: 45-25
Iggins!: 43-27

Code Red: 64-39
Mrs. Code Red: 62-41
Iggins!: 59-44

Code Red: 109-64
Mrs. Code Red: 108-65
Iggins!: 102-71

Buccaneers @ Vikings
Code Red: The Buccaneers just haven’t impressed against any defense with a pulse. Vikings win, but winter is coming.

Iggins!: Stomping the Chiefs is a tad irrelevant. Vikings win.

Mrs. Code Red: I feel like I should pick the Buccaneers, but I can't. Vikings win.

Redskins @ Steelers
Iggins!: Steelers are bad, and though the Washington secondary is garbage I think RG3 scores enough to take this one. I mean… the Titans and Raiders beat Pittsburgh. Redskins win.

Code Red: Just can’t buy that the Steelers defense won’t be just that little ounce better than Washington’s necessary to win this game. Steelers win.

Mrs. Code Red: I don't want the Steelers to win. I hate them because they played the Patriots in the AFC Championship in 1996. I'm not even a Patriots fan anymore (my fathah is), but, you know, old hatreds die hard. Redskins win.

Seahawks @ Lions
Code Red: In Detroit? Lions win.

Iggins!: I’ll take the Lions to win, but this seems like another loss to me. Just playing it safe with Seattle away from home.

Mrs. Code Red: Lions win.

Panthers @ Bears
Iggins!: The Panthers have nothing of anything that can stop the Bears on either side of the ball, except for Cam, and a lone QB does not a good team make. Bears get that shutout, 34-0.

Code Red: The Bears defense is light years better than it was when these teams met up last year. The Bears offense is also much better. I’m hoping Cutler can make some big plays off of play-action this week. I’ll say Bears 30, Panthers 17.

Mrs. Code Red: Duh, Bears 30, Panthers 10.

Falcons @ Eagles
Code Red: Eagles are not great, but I feel like the Falcons have to drop sometime, and that Eagles secondary seems capable of giving them a bad day. Eagles win.

Iggins!: The Falcons look like they’re going to lose, then win. The Eagles look like they’re going to win, then lose. PUZZLE PIECES… CONNECT! Falcons win.

Mrs. Code Red: Michael Vick is in an abysmal spiral. Falcons win.

Patriots @ Rams
Iggins!: Upset special. New England is getting run through by NFC West teams, their defense is bleh, and the Ram defense is good enough to hold them to 21 or 24 points. Rams win.

Code Red: Well, I’ll be. Patriots win.

Mrs. Code Red: Patriots win. I don't hate them, you know.

Colts @ Titans
Code Red: Titans are actually coming around a little bit. Colts don’t travel well. Titans win.

Iggins!: Man, you’re just going to keep losing points picking against Indy, aren’t you? Colts win.

Mrs. Code Red: Frikkin' Colts. Not sure why I felt the need for such emphasis.

Chargers @ Browns
Iggins!: Norv finally seems to understand he needs to run Matthews a lot, and that should be enough, despite a fading Rivers, to beat Cleveland. Chargers win.

Code Red: But Brandon Weeden will once again be valiant in defeat! GODDAMMIT, GORDON. YOU DROPPED THE TD PASS THAT WOULD HAVE GIVEN ME MY UPSET LAST WEEK. Chargers win.

Mrs. Code Red: It's sad that I'm actually taking a moment to think about this. Chargers win.

Dolphins @ Jets
Code Red: Tough call. At home I’ll take the Jets.

Iggins!: Dolphins to take some revenge. The Jets got extremely lucky last go-around. Dolphins win.

Mrs. Code Red: Jets.

Jaguars @ Packers
Iggins!: Yeah… yeah. Packers win.

Code Red: The Packers defense is decimated by injuries right now and it’s just not going to matter. Packers win.

Mrs. Code Red: Guh. Packers.

Raiders @ Chiefs
Code Red: Rhymes with Lady now officially the starter. Chiefs fans hoping that it’s Matt Barkley next year. Raiders win.

Iggins!: Whatever the equivalent of “Suck for Luck” is for Barkley, that’s the Chief strategy right now. Raiders win.

Code Red: “Take a Steaming Shat for Matt”?

Mrs. Code Red: God. Raiders?

Giants @ Cowboys
Iggins!: The Giants should be trying to save some face here since they got beat pretty good in week 1. Giants win.

Code Red: Cowboys actually tend to play really shitty at home. Giants are better on the road. Giants win.

Mrs. Code Red: Giants. I just don't like Tony Romo.

Code Red: I don't know. Given the way he played against the Bears I f*&king love the guy.

Saints @ Broncos
Code Red: Oh damn. This should be fun to watch, but you can’t bet on the Saints secondary to suck less than Denver’s. Broncos win.

Iggins!: Something tells me Breesus is going to pull this one out, but the comeback monster known as Peyton Manning tells me otherwise. Broncos win.

Mrs. Code Red: Broncos, most definitely.

49ers @ Cardinals
Iggins!: ESPN will try to tell you this is a game between two good teams. It is not. 49ers win.

Code Red: Based on what I gather from the general feeling, power-rankings wise, from around the internets: the 49ers, despite Alex Smith and their offense disappearing for long stretches and a defense that’s been less impressive than the Bears’ this year, are still better because they beat Green Bay in week one and losses to the Vikings and a 26-3 dismantling at home by the Giants are to be ignored. Otherwise they looked super-good dismantling the Bills. Meanwhile, the Bears basically have yet to be forgiven for losing a 13 pt game against Green Bay IN LAMBEAU. Guh. 49ers win.

Mrs. Code Red: If Kevin Kolb was healthy I might have been tempted to take the Cardinals. But he's not so I won't. 49ers win.

You know, at first I was going to be leery of the Panthers because they could abandon the zone-read running game, but then I remembered that the only thing worse than their running game and lack of receivers is their entire defense.
