    I believe most of those "experts" also picked the Falcons last week.

    hmmmmm....

    Good. Let them pick against us. I was tired of the team being considered the top dog by the media year in and year out. Though, it is a little concerning that Peter King is pick us. :(

    Good lord. Someone picked the Lions over the Bears? :eek:

    Did the Lions have Jason Campbell traded to the Bears this week?

    CBS: take the Ravens and the points

    Predicting against the spread - Pats by 1.5 points - five out of six at CBS Sports went with the Ravens to cover. Only Pete Prisco went with the Pats while Harmon Forecast, Clark Judge, Greg Urbano, Peter Madden and Dave Richard went with the Ravens plus the points. In their fan vote it's evenly split, 51% going with the Pats and 49% with Baltimore.

    Pete Prisco predicts the Pats win 31-28.
    We thought we'd be talking about that vaunted New England offense against that great Ravens defense, but the Patriots haven't lived up to the hype. Two years ago, the Ravens should have defeated the Patriots, only to lose on a questionable call. Those were different teams. I think this one will be a shootout for both teams. Tom Brady will hit some big throws, but so will Joe Flacco to keep it close.

    Harmon Forecast predicts the Pats win 20-19.
    This should be a great defensive game. The Ravens' defense has dominated every running back it has faced this season. Meanwhile, the Patriots' defense took away the Falcons' rushing attack last week. Patriots QB Tom Brady is looking sharper, but he still hasn't hit his stride yet.

    Unreal looking at them picks. I'm not at all confident about the Patriots this week but I think they are favourites at home. Very surprising that only two of them pick us.
    But then again when you look at some of the other picks.

    I notice they all except one of them pick the 0-3 Titans at Jacksonville which appears a lottery game to me.
    And they all pick the Redskins to beat the Bucs. Now we all know that the Bucs are no great shakes but the Redskins offense is the most disorganised bunch I've seen this year.
    And they all go for the Texans who are the worst team against the run to beat Oakland.

    Fox Sports picks the Ravens

    Peter Schrager of Fox Sports is going with the Ravens by one.
    Adam Schein believes Flacco will outperform Brady this week.

    Fox's computer game-simulator, WhatIfSports projects a 60% chance of the Ravens winning and a 23-22 Pats loss to Baltimore. They have Randy Moss getting 100 yards receiving, both quarterbacks throwing one pick and both teams rushing for over 100 yards.

    Re: Sporting News: 6 out of 7 pick the Ravens to win


    I thought the divisional playoff win at #1 seed Tennessee last year was a pretty big road win. Not to mention the Wild Card win at Miami, and even the prime time win to shut down Texas Stadium and hold on to the final playoff berth over the Pats.

    Prisco forgets his history....dont blame the refs for a low tier coach calling a TO at the worst possible moment....

    I don't think that is unreasonable for our defense to give up 24-27 points to the current #1 offense in the AFC.

    The open issue is how many points the patriots offense will score against the BALT defense.

    I think I'm finally starting to get into the Pats flying under everyone's radar. It's been a while, so I'd almost forgotten how sweet the stunned surprise is when they end up on top! :)


    Also, I'm absolutely convinced that they pay some staffer every week just to remind Merrill Hoge that he can only pick the Steelers to win in the game they actually play, and not the other 15 as well. As consolation, they let him holler out "factor back" as many times as he can manage during his segments.

    USA Today: even 4-4 split btween Pats and Ravens

    USA TODAY's weekly NFL picks for 2009 season - USATODAY.com

    Jarrett Bell, Jim Corbett, Sean Leahy and Gary Mihoces predict a Pats win.
    Nate Davis, Pete O'Brien, Tom Pedulla and Skip Wood went with the Ravens.

    O'Brien, who has the highest correct percentage of the group through week three, also predicted the Ravens would win the Super Bowl in preseason. He says the Ravens will deny Patriots Sunday.

    Yahoo picks the Ravens

    On Yahoo two out of three of their 'experts' pick the Ravens to win, and 60% of their audience picked Baltimore as well. Charles Robinson and Jason Cole went with the Ravens, while Michael Silver - a columnist I've never thought much of for his football knowledge - picked the Pats to win.
