Skip to comments.RJ's NFL Picks: Week Nine
Posted on 11/01/2012 8:36:14 PM PDT by FL2012
I went 10-4 straight up last week, and 7-7 against the spread. For the season, that puts me at 72-46 and 50-63-5 against the spread. For a comparison, check out the "experts" over at ESPN.com.
What follows are my picks for the NFL's Week Nine:
**Thursday, November 1**
Kansas City 1-6 at San Diego 3-4 - 8:20 p.m. (Line: SD by 7)
The Chiefs have lost four in a row. They are ranked 29th in the league in both points scored per game and points allowed per game. Matt Cassel has thrown 10 INTs and lost six fumbles so far this season. The total time of possession the Chiefs have played with the lead this year is 0:00. (They earned their only victory with a game-ending field goal in overtime.) The Chargers have lost three straight and have the second best run defense in the league.
- RJ's Pick: San Diego by 3
**Sunday, November 4**
Detroit 3-4 at Jacksonville 1-6 - 1:00 p.m. (Line: Lions by 3.5)
The Lions surprisingly (perhaps shockingly) have a top 10 pass defense. Matthew Stafford is averaging more than 300 passing yards per game. The Jaguars have scored just 103 total points this season, the fewest in the NFL and have dropped four straight.
- RJ's Pick: Detroit by 7

According to legend, if Washington wins this weekend then Obama will win the White House again.
