NFL Week Four Pigskin Predictions

RAVENS over browns
Will the Browns ever be a match for the Ravens? ... Maybe after Ray Lewis retires. Well, probably not.

PREDICTION: RAVENS 27, browns 10 [RESULT: RAVENS 23, browns 16]

Lions WR Calvin Johnson

LIONS over vikes
Minnesota is coming off an impressive win over San Francisco last week. Christian Ponder continues to improve, Kyle Rudolph is becoming a revelation and Ponder will get a new weapon as WR Jerome Simpson makes his Vikings debut this week. But Detroit's  Calvin Johnson is too talk of a task today. In an entertaining, nip-and-tuck battle, the Lions emerge with the home win.

PREDCITION: LIONS 31, vikes 27

FALCONS over panthers
The Falcons are looking like a serious contender. Carolina cannot keep up with Matty Ice and company today. Atlanta wins at home.

PREDICTION: FALCONS 31, panthers 23

pats over BILLS
It's no longer a cake walk to mosey on into Buffalo and pick up a win. The Bills offense is respectable and its defense is improving. Tom Brady finds a way to win though, as the Pats win by three.

chargers over CHIEFS
After incurring absolute beatdowns in its first two weeks, Kansas City pulled off a shocking overtime win in New Orleans last week. This week, the Chiefs revert to its lesser form and fall prey to the Chargers at Arrowhead.

PREDICTION: chargers 28, CHIEFS 17

hawks over RAMS
Seattle wins its third straight, toppling its division opponent Rams in St. Louis.

PREDICTION: hawks 23, RAMS 17

niners over JETS
49ers TE Vernon Davis
After a disappointing lost in Minnesota last week, the Niners are angry. San Francisco takes its frustration out on the Jets, throttling them in New York.

PREDICTION: niners 24, JETS 7

TEXANS over titans
Houston has no trouble with its lesser AFC South foe today. Tennessee's Chris Johnson continues his struggles against a tough Texans defense as Houston wins this game easily.

PREDICTION: TEXANS 31, titans 17

BRONCOS over raiders
Opening its season with three consecutive playoff team opponents, Denver welcomes Oakland into Mile High this afternoon. The Raiders can be good, but are still incredibly erratic and not playoff-worthy. Denver dispatches its division rival and draws its record to an even 2-2.

PREDICTION: BRONCOS 27, raiders 17

CARDS over fins
Arizona continues to be a serious team to reckon with. Miami does not have the pluck to plunder the Cards from its winning ways. Arizona wins by a touchdown


JAGS over bengals
In a lackluster game at Jacksonville, a Josh Scobee field goal leads the Jaguars by the Bengals.

PREDICTION: JAGS 13, bengals 10

PACK over saints
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers
In a wildly entertaining shootout, Aaron Rodgers surpasses the 400-yard mark to lead Green Bay past Drew Brees' Saints.

PREDICTION: PACK 34, saints 31

skins over BUCS
Robert Griffin III puts his talents on display in Tampa today, as his Skins handle the Bucs at Raymond James Stadium.

PREDICTION: skins 24, BUCS 20

EAGLES over giants
Philly wins again. The Eagles improve to 4-0 by sneaking past the G-men in overtime tonight.

PREDICTION: EAGLES 23, giants 20 (in OT)

Cowboys DE Demarcus Ware (Left)
BOYS over bears
Demarcus Ware versus the Chicago Bears woeful offensive line ... Advantage: Ware.

PREDICTION: BOYS 23, bears 17
