Cousin Sal has been our man to go for NFL picks this season, and he has a commanding 50% success rate with his predictions. We took last week off, so Sal is well-rested and ready to go with his choices going into this weekend.
Check out what he predicts will happen to the Packers, Bears, and Colts this week.
Kansas City Chiefs vs. Chicago Bears: It seems like more teams are forced to go with their backup Quarterbacks this season, making it seem to Sal like the lockout never ended. Both of these teams are running on backup no-names, but Sal believes the Bears will suck less in this department.
Prediction: Bears 20, Chiefs 3
Give the 7 points
New England Patriots vs. Indianapolis Colts: This game used to be a big deal in previous seasons. This week, you just need to bet on how much the Patriots are going to beat up on the Colts. This is a terrible season for the Colts, and will be a terrible game for them.
Prediction: Patriots 44, Colts 9
Give the 20.5 points
Green Bay Packers vs. NY Giants: The Packers look unstoppable, but Sal is predicting a Giants upset. He believes the Giants will get it together this week, with their defense putting the pressure on Aaron Rodgers. He thinks Eli will step up and have a good game as well, and the Packers will be handed their first loss of the season.
Prediction: Giants 24, Packers 21
