TransGriot 2017 NFL Picks -Week 4

Image result for Houston Texans NFL protest
We're a quarter of the way through the 2017 NFL season, and it has been a tumultuous one so far.

Trump pissed off the NFLPA, Black NFL players and their mothers with his racist comments attacking them and Colin Kaepernick, and they responded with league wide anthem protests that even crossed The Pond for the Ravens- Jaguars game that was played in London.

Meanwhile, Deshaun Watson is proving that it was a wise move for the Texans to trade up in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft and get him as he threw for 301 yards and two TD in a narrow 36-33 loss to the defending NFL champs.

Now our rookie QB gets to take on the Tennessee Traitors, er Titans in a critical AFC South Division hatefest at NRG Stadium.    Nope, not gonna let it go they moved to Nashville.

In Week 3 there were a lot of upsets in this still young NFL season, but I got one of them right in picking the Bills over Denver to win this week and increase my slim lead over Mr. Watts to two games in our season long prognostication contest. . 

It's now time to handle my Week 4 NFL prognostication business.   Once again another 16 games, another one in London and another week of trying to get to my goal of a prognostication contest threepeat.

Team I'm picking to win in bold print.  Home team in CAPS, with Mike's Week 4 picks here.
