Ahhh. Here we go yo, here we go yo…so what’s so what’s the Scenario (I dig the remix more family)? This is the week where the bad ass teams shoot straight strato and the fake jawns dig that Flava In Ya Ear grave. Capsules for the games pivotal. Stafford and Johnson are out, Harvin plays. Who do YOU got? What you got on my wings homie? I haven’t quite figured out what is going on with the side column categories, so bear with us until the current entries are off the page. Have a great Sunday. Be Peace.

Houston @ Cincinnati
It was very admirable of the Cincinnati front office to hold on to Marvin Lewis. This team is now loose, focused and powerful in their attack. They have mad shoulder chips and could rock shock the football world come playoff time.
Houston is a team that could be on the rise, but will the organization encourage its employees from the ground up every single day is the question. Andre Johnson is a dizzzam monster. His touchdown last week was one of the most ferocious displays of strength ever seen out of a receiver. Steve Slaton is ballin’ out and Matt Schaub has been very steady.
This is a game where we find out if the Bengals are for real or real fake. I’m going with the former.
Bengals 38, Texans 14
Baltimore @ Minnesota
Real rap? When I saw Brett Favre throw that sickdiculous back of the end zone pass to the Philly cast aside Greg Lewis, I had Christmas eyes like a little kid. What a pass. Dude still has some magic left and it will be intriguing to see if he can really pull this off. What do you think? Is he the missing Minny Nice piece or not? Adrian Peterson is second in the league in rushing, but today he goes up against Ray Ray and the gang tacklin’, super speed knockin’ Baltimore Ravens. Ray Lewis gets up for these big games. Expect multiple collisions between he and Peterson that might make OchoCinco pay the fine.
Baltimore on offense is a study in patience. Ray Rice is coming into his own and that Barry Sanders like run last week was as nice as you will see from a young running back. Flacco is learning it ain’t gonna be so easy with a hyped up schedule…but has the rejuvenated Derrick Mason ready to play big every game still mourning (I would have retired too) his great friend Steve McNair.
You know who gets his usual pick six and might get a fumble return after Lewis smacks the young superstar like he was his Daddy. Peterson fumbles at least twice. Favre with two picks. Lewis with 15 tackles. The Ravens are not losing three in a row.
Ravens 20, Vikings 17
New York @ New Orleans
You’ve heard all week…as the NFL marketing machine mass markets its diamond eyed product…about the two quarterbacks but what about the rest of the players? Brandon Jacobs is going home as well, not just Eli. It must be great to play in the stadium your Pop did his thing in and judging by that sick Giants front line, you’d think Michael Stahan was the puppet master. Listen, New Orleans is very good offensively, but they caught the Eagles Donovan McNabb free and this is where they get bounced off their own turf. Eli and Manningham will blow by the opportunistic Darren Sharper and company. I do see a problem with Antonio Pierce (Cris Carter said earlier that Pierce ran like he took one in the leg when chasing Brian Westbrook last season) one on one with Reggie Bush, but the riled up, rough and rugged running of Jacobs and speed enhanced high definition mercury of Ahmad Bradshaw steadies the frame. Just too much on the line for the Giants to lose. Philly is on their ass.
Giants 28, Saints 24
Denver @ San Diego
Brandon Marshall is shutting everyone the hell up. Kyle Orton is back chillin like he did in Lafayette and Brian Dawkins is throwing his Atom sized body around with the power and density of the sun. LT? Watch out. Gates? Watch out. Chambers? Hold ya hat. Denver’s offense is just as nasty as any in the league. They have every component a team needs to win, so why shouldn’t they run roughshod until defensive coordinators understand ya better get just as physical with Marshall as he will with you.
San Diego is just trudging along until things get a little more interesting and after taking an L against the defending champs on national television, it’s time to get busy. Will their running game get righteous to go along with an above average passing game? Will Vincent Jackson be looking all over the place in hopes of locating Weapon X? Of course, but Denver hits a speed bump…
Chargers 31, Broncos 30
Note: Vick scores a TD this week. Bank it.
