ERNESTO THEE PREDICTION IGUANA RETURNS TO THE STARTING LINEUP FOR THIS WEEK'S NFL PICKS
ERNESTO THEE PREDICTION IGUANA RETURNS TO THE STARTING LINEUP FOR THIS WEEK'S NFL PICKS

Barstow the Prediction Cat went a blistering 7-1 last week, making his 3-week total in relief of Ernesto the Prediction Iguana a terrific 16-3-1. The season totals here at GNN is a solid 38-12-1.

Ernesto the Prediction Iguana returns after his three week benching. My bet is the tome off did him some good. He usually starts slowly every year, then heats up come crunch time, putting up impressive numbers to finish the season strong. For his sake he better do it again this year...the cat made a strong case for getting a shot come playoff time if Ernesto continue to tread water. Anyway, here's this week's winners before they happen.

GREEN LIGHT!



panthers +6 at COWBOYS

Carolina is getting stronger as the season progresses. Every facet is firing on all cylinders: offense, defense, and special teams.

"They look like the Steelers of the early '80s," said one expert, and he's right.

Moreover, they're getting six points in this scenario. That's too much for an over-matched Dallas defense and an offense that runs in fits and spurts.

PACKERS -1 vs. bears

One team has Aaron Rodgers, the other has...drum roll please...Jay Cutler. Oh, and they're playing at Lambeau.

OVER EASY!

REDSKINS-giants OVER 40.5

Two good offenses against two struggling defenses - Eli and Kirk should have no trouble putting up five TDs between them.

SEAHAWKS-steelers OVER 38

Either Seattle blows Pittsburgh out, shredding the Steelers' paper mache pass defense, or Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and the rest of the black and gold will keep pace, making this one a track meet.

UNDER ARMOR!

LIONS-eagles UNDER 52

Two words - Mark Sanchez.

FALCONS-vikings UNDER 52

What happened to the Falcons? They were so good earlier this year... What happened to the Vikings? They're supposed to suck...

BONUS PICKS - FOR DEGENERATES ONLY!

patriots +1/2 at BRONCOS

Brock Osweiler, you are NOT playing the Bears this week.

buccaneers +9 at COLTS

Chuck Pagano, NOW is the time to try that crazy fake punt thing...against somebody who, you know, might actually fall for it...
