Six-Pack Challenge WEEK 11 – Team of Destiny

Every year there’s one. In 2011, it was the Broncos that rode the tide of fate, destiny, chemistry, and luck into the playoffs from nowhere. This season, it certainly seems like the Colts are doing the same. With Chuck Pagano recovering from leukemia and the team generally recently put together, a subpar season appeared to be on the horizon, but Indy has been impressive with wins over Green Bay and Miami. A future schedule that features Buffalo, Detroit, Tennessee, and Kansas City along with the AFC sucking has the Colts in prime position for the playoffs.

Beware: there are always bumps in the road for the Team of Destiny. Remember how the Pats manhandled Tebow last year? But dammit, if you watch Pagano’s locker room speech and don’t feel like running through a wall, you oughta take a hike. I’m a Giants fan and I’m rooting for the Colts. The Horseshoe isn’t gonna make it to the Super Bowl but I’ll take them Sunday. Indy 42, Pats 39. And now for the rest of our lovely picks…

EAGLES AT REDSKINS (-3.5)
Stone: Redskins
Growing pains for Nick Foles. Still better than a concussion.

Slumdeezy: Redskins

DRK: Redskins

Rory: Redskins
Come on Redskins. If this was the Giants, you’d beat them by 14. Cover this game.

DP Animal: Redskins

Phanatic: Eagles
This is the last time I pick them. This is the last time I pick them. Riding the folesmobile.

PACKERS (-3.5) AT LIONS
Stone: Packers
Seems like so long ago that the Lions were good.

Slumdeezy: Packers

DRK: Packers

Rory: Packers
Aren’t the Packers one of the best teams in the league?

DP Animal: Packers

Phanatic: Packers

BENGALS (-3.5) AT CHIEFS
Stone: Chiefs
If their home crowd doesn’t boo them too much. 

Slumdeezy: Bengals

DRK: Bengals

Rory: Bengals
Aren’t the Chiefs one of the worst teams in the league?

DP Animal: Bengals
Being a sports fan in Kansas City must make death seem like a good thing.

Phanatic: Bengals

COLTS AT PATRIOTS (-9.5)
Stone: Colts
Chuck Strong.

Slumdeezy: Patriots

DRK: Patriots

Rory: Colts
These teams can’t not never play a lousy game.

DP Animal: Colts
Just a hunch.

Phanatic: Colts
Cover and win! Yea I said it.

CHARGERS AT BRONCOS (-7.5)
Stone: Chargers
The Super Chargers always play well in Denver.

Slumdeezy: Broncos

DRK: Broncos

Rory: Broncos
Dream season for the Broncos will continue. Like the Ewing Theory, there should be something called the Tebow Theory, where a team automatically gets better once they get rid of a false idol.

DP Animal: Broncos

Phanatic: Chargers
At least a cover.

RAVENS (-3.5) AT STEELERS
Stone: Ravens
I’m sticking with my Ravens Super Bowl pick.

Slumdeezy: Steelers

DRK: Ravens

Rory: Steelers
I just feel this will be a close and ugly game.  Ravens may win, but with some weird score like 16-14.

DP Animal: Ravens
In the time it’s taken for me to think about, and then make this pick, Byron Leftwich has ALMOST completed his throwing motion.

Phanatic: Steelers

CURRENT RECORDS
Stone: 35-25 (Last week: 4-2)
DP Animal: 31-29 (3-3)
Rory: 31-29 (4-2)
Slumdeezy: 29-31 (1-5)
Phanatic: 28-32 (2-4)
DRK: 26-34 (3-3)
