Jimmy Kimmel’s Cousin Sal has been giving us his picks each week this season, and last week did not go well for him. He apologizes for telling you to pick the Giants over the Seahawks last week, and is sure this week will fare better. A bunch of teams are on bye this week, but Sal has his best bets for this “Settle Down Week”.
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Washington Redskins– For the Eagles, Sal called this the “Enough is Enough Bowl”. To keep their playoff hopes alive, they need to start with a win this week. Sal believes they can overtake the overrated Redskins and avoid going 1-5.
Prediction: Eagles 30, Redskins 13
Take the Eagles, +1
Buffalo Bills vs. NY Giants: Sal usually picks the Bills, but the Giants are looking strong this week.
Prediction: Giants 24, Bills 16
Take the Giants, +3
New England Patriots vs. Dallas Cowboys: Sal predicting a major upset in this game. The Cowboys have had two weeks to prepare for this game, and will want to avenge their embarrassing loss to the Lions. The Cowboys have a tough defense, and Sal predicts that at some point in the game, will knock out Tom Brady. The Patriots will also be hampered with three new players in the offensive line.
Prediction: Cowboys 38, Patriots 35
