Last week was a brutal week for everyone, except Matias. Dude is KILLIN it! On average we all got seven games right, meanwhile Matais had another double digit week going 11-2, including calling the Saints and Titans’ upsets. I need to just start copying whatever picks he makes. That’s the only way I’m gonna make it back in this.

Also, big shoutout to Jon Gruden and the Raiders for showing us why you never ever bet on them to win a game. We all lost Thursday night when the 49ers, led by Hall of Fame quarterback Nick Mullens, wiped the floor with Oakland. Lawdy that team bad.

Time for Week 10 stuff!

Unanimous picks: Saints over Bengals, Falcons over Browns, Chiefs over Cardinals, Chargers over Raiders, Packers over Dolphins, Eagles over Cowboys

Ledge picks: Lions over Bears (Mark), Jaguars over Colts (Clark, weirdly), Bills over Jets (Heath), Titans over Patriots (Paddi)

This week could be terrible given how many unanimous picks we made. Either it’ll work out like we all thought and our percentages will go sky high, or all those games go bonkers and we suddenly find ourselves with three wins on the week. Who knows! All I know is that since none of us picked the Raiders to win, the freaking Raiders are going to win. You just know it’s going to happen.

I spent a lot of time—way too much time if we’re being honest—on the Jets v Bills game. It’s impossible to predict who’s going to win this suck bowl. I ultimately gave the slight edge to the Jets because even though they’re starting Josh McCown, he’s at least a good quarterback. Plus, I’m fully out on the Bills until they can show me that they can go an entire game without having at least two turnovers. That’s just basic football people.

Finally, as I’m sure you’re all wondering, obviously Matias is simply busy and that’s why he hasn’t filled in his picks this week, but given the rate that that man has been hitting, there’s a part of me that thinks he knows something we don’t. Are we about to watch a football-less weekend? If Matias calls that, dude straight up wins life and should immediately bet all his money on whatever tickles his fancy because he’s going to be right no matter what it is.
