Code Red: 59-33
Mrs. Code Red: 57-35
Seattle Seahawks (5-1) @ Arizona Cardinals (3-3)
Iggins!: Arians is getting way too much out of not enough on the Cardinals, and I commend him for it, but even taking Seattle out of Seattle won’t be enough here. Seahawks win.
Erik: Yeah the Cardinals are better than they have any right to be, but the Seahawks are just way better. Seahawks.
Code Red: That defensive line will eat Carson Palmer alive. Seahawks win.
Mrs. Code Red: Seahawks.
Chicago Bears (4-2) @ Washington Redskins (1-4)
Erik: A lot is being made of the fact that RGIII “could return to form any day now,” KYLE. But I just don’t see how the Redskins, who are literally worse at every position than the Bears, pull this one out. Bears win, 31-21.
Code Red: Being uneasy =/= fatalism. The Bears should win this one. Bears win 38-23.
Mrs. Code Red: Bears 28-24. I'm not predicting any blowouts till they prove they can do it.
Iggins!: The Bears can outscore the [REDACTED]s, so I'm not too worried. Bears win 38-27.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-5) @ Atlanta Falcons (1-4)
Iggins!: Look, Atlanta, is you don’t win here just rest everybody for the rest of the year and trade Tony G back to Kansas City. Atlanta wins.
Erik: I would argue that they should do that anyway. I doubt Roddy White has long left in him, and Steven
Jackson thus far has done exactly what I said Steven Jackson would do in Atlanta. They have literally zero shot at anything of value this year. Still, the Bucs are really, reaaaally bad. Falcons.
Code Red: Yeah their season is over. Tony G should go back to KC. God that would make a great story! This is the NFL, though, so it won't happen. Still, Tampa sux. Falcons win.
Mrs. Code Red: Can't believe Atlanta is 1-4. Falcons win.
Cincinnati Bengals (4-2) @ Detroit Lions (4-2)
Erik: This is a confusing one, and I would not have expected it to be at the beginning of the year. The Bengals have tried as hard as they can to not be a 4-2 team, but somehow they’re still here. The Lions have been the team their roster says they should be about 2/3 of the time, and the Detroit Lions the remaining 1/3 of the time. I guess I’ll take the home team here. Lions.
Code Red: The Bengals validated my faith in them when I picked them over the Packers, but that was at home. In the dome the Lions are just a better team. Lions win.
Mrs. Code Red: I'm taking the Bengals because I think their defense can slow down the Lions if Calvin Johnson isn't 100%. Bengals win.
Iggins!: The Bengals can't stop great receivers for shit and their offense kind of blows lately. Lions win.
