J.J Arrington of the Arizona Cardinals carries the ball for a touchdown in the first quarter against the Dallas Cowboys on October 12, 2008.
It’s that time of week. Time to man up and make your pick for this week’s game. Get it right, and it’s extra brandy in your egg nog this Christmas. The greatest blessing of all! Here we go:
Ten of Ten ESPN Experts: Cowboys. Eight games this week get unanimous picks from the ESPN experts. They even all picked Houston to win! On the road! After losing three straight! It’s so cowardly, it’s bold!
Michael Silver: Cowboys.
93% Of Yahoo! Users: Cowboys.
Pete Prisco (CBS): Cowboys.
Andy (Cowboys fan I know): Cowboys 97, Cardinals 0. (“John Skelton is EXACTLY what I wanted for Christmas.”)
Index Card I Threw Up In The Air With The Name Of Each Team On Either Side, Seeing Which Team Would Land Face Up: Cardinals (Index Card record: 8-6)
The Wife: Cowboys.
Me: When this season is finished, the greatest mystery of all will be how Arizona managed to hang a 40-burger on Denver two weeks ago. I know Denver is putrid, but I’m still baffled that Arizona managed to do that. It’s as if their TD’s were immaculately conceived. This game will be unwatchable. COWBOYS 30, CARDINALS 9.
Yours in the comments. MERRY CHRISTMAS!
