After nearly half of a season that didn’t make any sense ,the last three weeks of picks have fell back to form so there hasn’t been any big upsets to thin out the field in survivor leagues.  We haven’t lost but a couple the last couple weeks and are still at 50 people out of over 1,000.  The problem this point forward is the pool of teams playing good football that haven’t already been used is shrinking mightily!   This time of the season it is best to pick the teams that are free of major injury playing good football in their own stadium. One of the hottest teams in th NFL is on the road though against a terrible team, and in years past once a Peyton Manning team started on a roll it could and would run off a lot of victories in a row.

No Brainer on the Road

Denver vs KC Chiefs- Peyton will throw for 300 yards and 3 touchdowns and the Broncos will win with little stress.

The Best Home Team Pick

Bengals over Raiders- The Raiders are playing terrible and after playing losing itself for a month the Bengals have been playing good football for three weeks now and should roll again against the Raiders.
