It’s that time of week. Time to man up and make your pick for this week’s game. Get it right, and an entire isolated section of the country will come to revere you as a God. An icon. A shaper of young men. They’ll love you so much, they’ll totally look the other way when they find out you’ve been part of a illegal cockfighting ring all these years. Here we go:
Peter King: Cowboys 23, Redskins 10. “(DeMarco) Murray has changed everything with the Cowboys. Last four games: 150.3 rushing yards per game -- and a ridiculous eight yards per rush. Rest, Felix. Rest." Benched, Felix. You have been.
Ten of Ten ESPN Experts:Cowboys.
Yahoo! Users: Cowboys.
Mike Silver: Cowboys.
Pete Prisco (CBS): Cowboys.
Andy (Cowboys fan I know): Cowboys 44, Redskins 7 (“We’re back! We’re totally back until Romo takes out my heart and puts it in the paper shredder again!”)
Index Card I Threw Up In The Air With The Name Of Each Team On Either Side, Seeing Which Team Would Land Face Up: Cowboys. (Card Record: 7-2)
The Wife: Redskins (DC native)
Me: I’m fully on board with t he Cowboys revival now. They’re gonna win these next three games and go into t he home stretch at 8-4. And then the fun will begin. Those two Giants games in the last four weeks will be MASSIVE. I kinda can’t wait to get to December. That’s when we’ll know for certain if this little run meant anything. As for the Redskins, the death spiral continues. COWBOYS 34, REDSKINS 9 (2011 picks: 6-3)
