After a dismal week seven the Old Man bounced back in week eight, only missing two games. Of course six teams were on a bye, but we won’t go there! What does week nine hold? More sideline antics by Dez Bryant? Brandon “I just don’t get it” Meriweather starting his ACL destruction tour? Another Detroit “Motor City Miracle?” Wait Detroit is on bye, as is Arizona, Denver, Jacksonville (haven’t they been on bye all season), the New York Giants, and San Francisco 49ers. Everyone else is playing. As usual, all games are picked straight up. Points are only used as a reference. All games are on Sunday unless otherwise noted.
