It’s that time of week. Time to man up and make your pick for this week’s game. Get it right, and you’ll be able to afford the American Dream: Eating all the cans of Pringles you like and getting periodic liposuction treatments to eliminate any unsightly weight gains as a result. Here we go:
Peter King: Cowboys 33, Cardinals 10. “DeMarco Murray has five weeks to inject himself into the Offensive Rookie of the Year race.” Mmm… hot rookie injection.
Ten of Ten ESPN Experts: Cowboys. Oooh, can you feel the contrarian alert building?
Yahoo! Users: Cowboys. (no score)
Mike Silver: Cowboys. (no score)
Pete Prisco (CBS): Cowboys.
Andy (Cowboys fan I know): Cowboys 31, Cardinals 6. (“They won’t blow this game. They’ll blow all the OTHER games left, but not this one.”)
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. (Card Record: 8-3.)
The Wife: Cowboys
Me: The Cowboys are poised to finish off the easy portion of their schedule a perfect 5-0. If they win this one and the Giants lose to Green Bay (and they will), they’ll have themselves a massive two-game lead going into the decisive final stretch. It’s almost TOO comfortable a lead. You Cowboys fans know the team hasn’t spent the past ten years doing things the easy way, and I have a feeling they aren’t about to start. I’m going with THE SHOCKER, one of those games single-handedly won by Larry Fitzgerald. He does it once in a blue moon. CARDINALS 28, COWBOYS 27. (2011 picks: 8-3)
