Picking winners for Week 4 NFL games

  • By Lyle, the Around The League intern

Each week, the Around The League writer with the worst record in picks has to write our introduction. This week, that man is Kevin Patra.

My picks were terrible last week. I am hugely disappointed in how I performed. I know my picks were bad. But to rephrase Tom Coughlin: Your picks are your picks.

This week I'm turning it all Aa-round. To verbalize my assurance in this week's picks, I give you Mr. Tennessee Titan, Kenny Britt:

"My confidence isn't going anywhere," Britt said Wednesday, as he chomped on a Twix bar, per the Tennessean. "I have faith in everything I can do and in my God-given abilities. It is more on concentration and focusing on the task at hand. ... It motivates me hearing negative things because I know I can do it. All I have to do is put my mind to it."

This week I put my mind to these picks, because, clearly, I chose not to last week. Now someone get me a dadgum Twix.
