Games of the Week with Chris Berman (aka the Swami) and Boomer Esiason Record so far: Swami (1/2 - 50%) Boomer (2/2 - 100%) Redskins at Bengals Berman Redskins 28 Bengals 31 This one boils down to good old fashioned DEFENSE. Through 2 weeks the Bengals have allowed 230 less yards on defense. That is a WHOLE games worth of yards for some team. Both teams move the ball well, but both rely on the passing game too much. I have a feeling this one will come down to the wire with 2 young and upcoming quarterbacks. Boomer Redskins 35 Bengals 21 Gotta disagree with the Swami on this one. I think both these teams are playing well, and I definitely think that defense is going to play a role, but I have a feeling that RGIII is poised for a breakout game, and this is going to be the one. While the Bengals "D" has been beastly the last two games, I think that the mobility of the Redskins' QB (something the Bengals' haven't had to deal with yet) and the receiving combo of Santana Moss and Pierre Garcon are going to come out this week and show us the kind of scoring they're capable of. Panthers at Giants Berman Panthers 10 Giants 27 This is a game that has the makings of being a shoot out. Both teams have dynamic offenses and the ability to put up big points. The g-men have more balance in their offense and after the defensive minded TheGreatCV this offseason will be in good position to Bring home the victory. Cam Newton and his supporting cast are coming in to this game very confident, and Look to make their mark. I'm going with the g-men! Boomer Panthers 28 Giants 21 Again, I like the mobility of Cam Newton against the Giant's defense. I look back at the Panthers week one performance against the Bucs and I can't help but think that Newton and the boys are coming out with guns blazing. I like the Panther's defense and I think that Newton's coming out to make a statement against New York. I also believe that DeAngelo Williams is due for another big game - I'm predicting well over 100 yards rushing for him in this one, and maybe close to the 150 mark.
