This week I chose the song "College" by Pat Green because the green and white of the DCB hockey and basketball teams hit their respective surfaces for home games this weekend.

Those were the only things I covered, and they are all on the road this week. That leaves me with Region 6 volleyball playoffs left as my only fall sport and my only photo op's this week. I will be heading down to either the championship or the third place game on Thursday in Minot.

A not so great week thanks to all the late games and the Sunday and Monday night games gave me an only 8-6 week in my NFL picks for week 9. I am now 92-48 on the season. Before I make my picks for week 10, I have decided i will revisit my original playoff predictions, and potentially tweak them at the midway point of the season.

Originally I had this:

AFC Playoffs:                                                               NFC Playoffs:
Round 1:(3) Houston vs. (6) NY Jets                              (3) Green Bay vs. (6) Atlanta
(4) San Diego vs. (5) Baltimore                                      (4) St. Louis vs. (5) New Orleans
Round 2: (6) NY Jets vs. (1) New England                     (6) Atlanta vs. (1) Tampa Bay
(5) Baltimore vs. (2) Pittsburgh                                     (5) New Orleans vs. (2) Philadelphia

Championships: (2) Pittsburgh vs. (1) New England        (6) Atlanta vs. (2) Philadelphia

Superbowl: New England over Philadelphia 31-17

After a half-season and further review, the picture has changed thusly:

AFC Playoffs:                                                            NFC Playoffs:
Round1: (3) New England vs. (6) Buffalo                     (3) New Orleans vs. (6) Chicago
(4) San Diego vs. (5) Cincinnati                                   (4) NY Giants vs. (5) Atlanta
Round 2: (5) Cincinnati vs. (1) Houston                        (5) Atlanta vs. (1) Green Bay
(3) New England vs. (2) Baltimore                               (3) New Orleans vs. (2) San Francisco

Championships: (5) Cincinnati vs. (3) New England        (1) Green Bay vs. (3) New Orleans

Superbowl: Green Bay over New England 38-27

Now for my week 10 picks:
San Diego over Oakland
Philadelphia over Arizona
Tennessee over Carolina
Miami over Washington
St. Louis over Cleveland
Buffalo over Dallas
Cincinnati over Pittsburgh
Jacksonville over Indianapolis
Denver over Kansas City
New Orleans over Atlanta
Baltimore over Seattle
Chicago over Detroit
San Francisco over New York Giants
New England over New York Jets
Green Bay over Minnesota
