I had the Saints winning big over the Cowboys. I am not ashamed to admit it. But kudos to Adam Schefter and Seth Wickersham for having the guts to pick Dallas in this game.
Let's see what the experts predicted in the other two games involving NFC East teams followed by my pick:
San Francisco at Philadelphia: Not a single panelist picked the 49ers, but I think Eagles fans should be worried about this game. Yes, the Eagles are used to playing in poor weather conditions but the 49ers have been playing hard. For some reason, I think the 49ers will push Philly in this game.
Beast pick: Eagles 24, 49ers 20.
New York at Washington: Mike Golic, Chris Mortensen and Mark Schlereth all picked the Redskins to pull off the slight upset. And I think the change at general manager may have given this fan base a little spark. With Albert Haynesworth returning and Brian Orakpo playing at a high level, I think Eli Manning could have some major issues. Give me the Skins.
Beast pick: Redskins 28, Giants 23
