One of my favorite expressions is that “every blind squirrel gets a nut.” Well, excluding the Thursday and Monday night games…I went 11-0 straight up and 10-1 against the spread last week. Not too shabby for a bunch of toss-up games as I saw them in this column at the time.
Among those correct picks was the Saints over the Rams. Was I surprised about the actual result? Not at all. Los Angeles was bound to lose at some point. But here’s a quick prediction…they won’t lose again…all year. It’s a team that, once healthy in the secondary, has absolutely no weaknesses. And with a remaining schedule of Seattle, Kansas City (in Mexico City), at Detroit, at Chicago, Philadelphia, at Arizona, San Francisco…I would be surprised if they slipped up once more.
In the playoffs anything can happen, but as I said a few weeks ago, fade Todd Gurley and company at your own risk. They’re the most talented team in pro football and there’s no team that I see comparable top-to-bottom at the moment, even New Orleans.

Are you ready to get excited, Cardinals fans?
Let’s say your team beats Seattle on Thursday night and improves to 5-4 in 2017. Look at the upcoming schedule:
Week 11: at Houston – Very winnable now that Deshaun Watson and J.J. Watt are out.
Week 12: Jacksonville – Jaguars are vulnerable on the road and in even-numbered weeks.
Week 13: LA Rams – They’re 6-2 but it’s the Rams we’re talking about…at home. Winnable
Week 14: Tennessee – They’ve been inconsistent this season to put it mildly.
Week 15: at Washington – Another team that is capable of crushing or getting crushed weekly.
Week 16: NY Giants – Currently they’re 1-7 and a complete dumpster fire.
Week 17: at Seattle – The Cards have won in Seattle 3 of the last 4 seasons.
It’s not out of the question that Adrian Peterson and company can make a playoff run with that fairly favorable schedule, is it?
But it all starts with a win over the Seahawks…will it happen? Take a look below at the picks…
