Week 9 Picks- Previews and Predictions
Week 9 kicked off last night with the San Diego Chargers putting on an impressive performance in a 31-13 victory against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Looking ahead to some of the standout matchups in Week 9 now and there are some great games in store for Sunday.
There is a fantastic quarterback battle in store in Washington as Cam Newton and RG3 go head-to-head. Another great quarterback dual is set for NewYork as Ben Roethlisberger takes his Pittsburgh Steelers on the road vs the Giants.
