Beast Prediction Friday

We do it every Friday at this time. The ESPN experts have made their picks for the Week 9 games and now it's time for the NFC East blog to respond. Let's break it down:

New York Giants at Seattle Seahawks: Seattle's been really good at home, so I thought one of the experts would pick them this week. But apparently they have too much respect for Tom Coughlin. Oh, and there's the thing about Charlie Whitehurst replacing Matt Hasselbeck.

Mosley's pick: Giants 27, Seahawks 13: I just think the Giants' defense will be too much for an inexperienced quarterback. Eli Manning will lead the Giants on a touchdown drive early that will calm that Qwest Field crowd down a bit. Giants roll.

Indianapolis Colts at Philadelphia Eagles: I thought folks would be jumping back on the Michael Vick bandwagon, but only Ron Jaworski (shocker) and Chris Mortensen went with the Eagles. The other six experts think Andy Reid will lose the post-bye game for the first time in his career.

Mosley's pick: Eagles 24, Colts 21: The Colts are good, but it's tough to play a team coming off the bye. Especially an Andy Reid-coached team. He's 11-0 following the bye week in his career. And I think Trent Cole's going to have a big game against Peyton Manning.

Dallas Cowboys at Green Bay Packers: I was shocked that two experts picked the Cowboys to win this game. Former Eagles star Eric Allen and ESPN Insider Adam Schefter apparently think the Cowboys will rally around embattled head coach Wade Phillips. I don't see it.

Mosley's pick: Packers 27, Cowboys 3: The Packers only scored nine points against the Jets, but Aaron Rodgers will get rolling against the Cowboys' secondary.
