The Picks: Cowboys at Cardinals



    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)
