Survivor Pool

I don't have much time this week, but I wanted to get this pick on the record:   I am picking the Buffalo Bills to defeat the Houston Texans.


  1. I wouldn't make it my survivor pick, but I have this feeling that New England is going to beat Tampa Bay, fueling overreaction that the Patriots and Mac Jones are on their way to the elite tier and that the Buccaneers and Tom Brady are done. Well, I guess what I have is a feeling about what the ripples of a Bucs' loss at New England would be.

  2. Three wins coming into this weekend's games: Cardinals, Panthers, Broncos, Raiders and Rams.

    Two wins: Ravens, Bills, Bengals, Browns, Cowboys, Packers, Chargers, Saints, 49ers, Buccaneers and Titans.

    One win: Falcons, Bears, Texans, Chiefs, Dolphins, Vikings, Patriots, Eagles, Steelers, Seahawks and Football Team.

    Zero wins: Lions, Colts, Jaguars, Giants and Jets.

  3. Here's how many wins each of the NFL20-playoffs participants had through three weeks of last season:

    -- Packers, Chiefs, Bears, Steelers, Bills, Seahawks and Titans, three apiece

    -- Browns, Colts, Rams, Buccaneers and Ravens, two

    -- Football Team and Saints, one

  4. Only Washington still had only one win after Week 4 of NFL20, and it was tied for first in its division.

  5. The NFL21 regular season is 17 games, one more than in NFL20.
