NFL Week 4 Pick Results

WInning teams in bold.

Unanimous picks (7-3)

Correctly picked:

Bills @ Rams
Chargers @ Raiders Texans @ Jaguars
49ers @ Saints
Vikings @ Titans
Falcons @ Panthers
Packers @ Buccaneers

Not so much:

Broncos @ Chiefs
The Broncos' suspect defense implodes: Larry Johnson runs for 198 yards and 2 TD, Damon Huard has a solid day of his own, and the Broncos offense just can't keep up.
Browns @ Bengals
Ryan Fitzpatrick (who?) plays for the injured Carson Palmer. Three interceptions and a late fumble cost the Bengals.
Redskins @ Cowbowys
The Redskins looked very flat in their opening-day loss to the Giants. Since then, they've put together a string of solid wins, now including a road win against one of the best teams in the league.

Split Picks (APR 1-2, SRS 0-3, Line 2-1)

Cardinals (APR, SRS) @ Jets (Line)
The Cardinals just fell apart in the second quarter: two interceptions and two lost fumbles help the Jets score 34 points. The very soft Jets defense gives up 35 second half points, but it wasn't enough.
Eagles (SRS, Line) @ Bears (APR)
The Bears are back to 'Strong defense, adequate offense', at least for one game. Twice the Eagles had first and goal, and couldn't get a touch down (even with four tries on the last one).
Ravens (APR, SRS) @ Steelers (Line)
The Ravens had their chances to win this one, up to and including winning the toss in overtime. Still, 8 punts and 4 scores might have been good enough for the Ravens offense if the special teams offense hadn't given up a fumble return for a touchdown.
