Coming Home

This week I picked "Diddy Dirty Money" featuring Skyler Grey's "Coming Home" as my song. I chose it because I had the privilege of covering two fantastic homecoming victories for teams in Bottineau County.
First on Friday I traveled to Westhope as the Sioux won their homecoming game 42-6.
Saturday I stayed in Bottineau and covered the Jacks as they beat rival Trinity Bible College 41-32.

I suffered my first loss in one of my fantasy football leagues this week. I also lost in the other, Wes Welker has really been killing me the past couple of weeks. I am currently 3-1 and 2-2 in either league.

I went 9-7 in my NFL picks last week, a bit of an off week. But who would have picked the Eagles to lose to the Niners? Also I went a little crazy with my upset picks last week. Why did I think Oakland could beat the Pats? For the season I am 50-24 through the first four weeks. Anyway, here are my picks for week 5:

Titans over Steelers
Raiders over Texans
Colts over Cheifs
Bengals over Jaguars
Giants over Seahawks
Vikings over Cardinals
Saints over Panthers
Bills over Eagles
Bucaneers over Niners
Patriots over Jets
Broncos over Chargers
Packers over Falcons
Bears over Lions

Again, I may be a little heavy on the upsets, but it could happen, right?

Here are the pics from this weeks games:
