2013 TransGriot NFL Predictions Week 9

We're now starting the second half of the NFL season and the NFL prognostication contest between me, Mike and Eli continues. 

Last week birthday boy Mike was happy that he'd finally caught up with Eli after that hot start and Eli obviously cooling off for several weeks.

But Eli awakened out of that prognostication slumber with a vengeance as he nearly had a perfect week, with the only game he misfired on being the Philadelphia-NY Giants one. 

I rebounded from my lousy Week 7 to go 9-4 in the games that were played last weekend.  Meanwhile, hoping my fave NFL team does the same when they come out of their bye week to play the Indianapolis Colts with the bright lights of the NBC TV cameras coming to Reliant Stadium. 

And since Texans head coach Gary Kubiak has now handed the starter's job to Keenum that he earned against Kansas City, that means this game will not only be his first start at Reliant front of the home fans, it'll be Case Keenum's NBC Sunday Night Football debut.

And yep, it's fitting that's also Battle Red night    Eat 'em Go Texans!

So time to pick the Week 9 Games.   Once again since there are six teams enjoying their bye week, only 13 games to select.  My picks as usual in underlined bold print, Mike's and Eli's are here.
