NFL Week 4 Picks
Last Week: 8-8   Season: 29-19
The Texans and former Falcons backup QB Matt Schaub are the latest club to do battle with the wildebeest of the NFL.
Pick: Texans
If the Browns are looking for a reason to play Brady Quinn, it could happen as a result of this weekend.
Pick: Ravens
The Bills need a win very badly.  Look for it to come this weekend at home against the offensively inconsistent Jets.
Pick: Bills
Cowboys have far too many weapons on both sides of the ball for the under-achieving, banged up Rams.
Pick: Cowboys
If anyone knows how to attack the Bears' Tampa 2 defense, it's former Bucs coach Rod Marinelli and Mike Martz who worked against it on a daily basis in St Louis.  Pick: Lions
Dolphins will have a lot of explaining to do if they were to lose to a Culpepper-led football club at home. Dolphins in a low-scoring contest.  
Pick: Dolphins
Favre has never performed as well indoors then he has on real grass outdoors. Vikings in a early mild upset.   Pick: Vikings
The Panthers only because it's a home game. QB Jeff Garcia has been an outstanding addition, but look for the Panthers defense to come up big.
Pick:  Panthers
49ers offense flat out lacks the firepower to matchup against this division rival. Seahawks in a low scoring battle.  Pick: Seahawks
Cardinals are a different club at home, but offense has really struggled early to find any consistency. 
Pick: Steelers
Have I mentioned this year that the Colts have Peyton Manning at the QB position? Broncos have some serious matchup problems in this one.
Pick: Colts
Look for the Chargers to finally put it together against the offensively-challenged Chiefs. 
Pick:  Chargers
Both teams picked up their first victory of the season last week. Eagles have far too much speed and weapons offensively for the Giants.
Pick: Eagles
Bengals and Carson Palmer will exploit Pats apparent weakness (secondary), but who's going to cover Randy Moss and stop Tom Brady on this defensive squad?  Pick: Patriots
