Little time to say much. Thanks to Graham, Brucey & Richard.

@ OR (3-3, W1)
Last time : wk 4, 2003 (44 - 0)
Gerald : Bills by 10.
Graham : Bills are in scorching form right now,
so I'd be surprised if the Raiders can inflict their first loss of the season.
SPLATT : Buffalo by 11.
Richard : Bills by 7.
NE (2-4, L2)
@ KC (2-4, W2)
Last time : wk 3, 2003 (20 - 7)
Gerald : No comment.
Graham : This could be interesting. Pats D has
taken a bit of a pounding this season, while the Chiefs have staged a mini-revival.
I just fancy New England to get back on track. NE 1

Richard : Pats by 3.
MD (3-3, W1)
@ CI (2-4, W2)
Last time : wk 11, 2003 (30 - 17)
Gerald : Fish by 10.
Graham : Should be a shootout, even though the
Dolphins are more balanced this year. Bengals are taking strides in the right
direction but their D still gives cause for concern. MD 3

Richard : Fish by 4.

@ PS (2-4, W1)
Last time : wk 13, 2003 (27 - 24 OT)
Gerald : Jets by 17.
Graham : Steeler D will be under considerable pressure.
Jets' own defence has been one of the season's big surprises after last year's
problems. NJ 7

@ DB (4-2, L1)
Last time : wk 11, 2003 (9 - 30)

and really ought to see off the stuttering Titans. DB 13.

@ AF (3-3, L1)
Last time : wk 7, 2003 (24 - 10)
Gerald : Skins by 3.
Graham : Good win by Skins last week, while Falcons
suffered a tough loss. Both seem to have been involved in a lot of close games
so this could be pretty tight. WR 3

@ NS (1-5, L3)
Last time : wk 7, 2003 (29 - 26)

@ TB (2-4, L1)
Last time : wk 13, 2003 (14 - 20)
Gerald : Buccs by 2.
Graham : Neither of these rebuilding teams is likely
to make the playoffs but this could be a good game. Buccs look a little more
solid at the moment. TB 6

@ DL (0-6, L7)
Last time : wk 4, 2003 (13 - 16)
Gerald : Lions by 3.
Graham : If ever a game was going to be tied it's
this one. I predict that the Lions will finally manage ten points and notch
up that elusive first victory. I'm confident. Aren't I ? DL 1

@ SF (4-2, W2)
Last time : wk 3, 2003 (13 - 13 OT)
Gerald : 49ers by 7.
Graham : Bears D might get some relief, but I suspect
heir offence won't. Niners are looking solid and threatening again. Not sure
what happened at the end of last year . . .SF 6.

Richard : 49ers by 3.
MV (6-0, W8)
@ SR (5-1, W1)
Last time : wk 4, 2003 (27 - 28)
Gerald : Rams by 45.
Graham : Scouting Report doesn't bode well. Vikes
have the no. 1 offence and the number 2 defence. Still, Chris Miller has only
thrown two INTs so far . . oh, Duante Culpepper has only thrown one. Still,
we have better special teams. Marginally. We're due some luck against Minnesota,
though, aren't we? No, I meant good luck. Oh. Bugger.
SPLATT : Minnesota
Richard : Vikings by 7.
by Graham Canwell (Week 6)
||A really tricky choice between the Bengals and Bills
for this, with the Chiefs not too far behind. Eventually decided Cincy's
terrific display just had the edge.
||KC had a bit of a run at this award too, as did the
Steelers' performance in New Orleans, but for sheer defensive devastation
it was the Bills who get the gong..
||Simply took the Bears apart. Both Paul (Bengals) and
Ian (Chiefs) were only just behind in the running, while Pat (Steelers)
also deserves a very honourable mention.
||Who can take this award away from the Vikings? Tons
of yards and beautifully balanced. Not a lot of competition, since we
NFC types don't go in for offence in a big way . . .
||Have to mention the Eagles and their perennially great
defence, but given that we were playing the Browns I felt we probably
just about deserved it (not least because our offence was average and
our special teams mediocre at best).
||Tim is doing a magnificent job, as I'm sure he'll
show against me this week (he certainly deserves to after the way we snatched
a cruel and totally unjust win in Minnesota last season).
||No unmissable Diddley performances this week, but
the Raiders were probably a little fortunate to overcome the Cards at
home after losing the turnover battle 4-1.
Gerald to Graham : Well done
Gerald to Julian : What a shame. But it couldn't
Gerald to Jon : You're looking frighteningly
good this season.
Gerald to Richard : Great performance on the
predictions last week.
Graham to Gerald : If its any consolation, the
Vikes got a couple of Rammys for beating you this week.
Graham to Julian : Goes without saying I'd love
to play you again this year, even though I'm certain the result would be rather
Graham to Tim : Whatever happens this week, I
hope the best team wins (unlike last year).

Sorry this is so rushed but time just caught up with me. Hopefully I'll
be able to put more time in next week? Unless someone wants to do it? hahaha
