Cincy Jungle staff picks for every NFL Week 9 matchup

The battle atop the CJ rankings tightens as we cross the halfway point of the season.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Now that we are crossing into the second half of the season, the race for superiority atop the CJ staff has further tightened, while the bottom is falling out for those lagging behind. By "those lagging behind", I mean me. I am in imminent danger of having to be Andre Smith's personal deodorant applicator for the 2016 season. Meanwhile, Jason's reverse jinx continues to serve us well.

The two consensus picks made by the staff last week both paid out, so if you're looking to play a three-team parlay this week, we all like New England over Washington, New Orleans over Tennessee, and Atlanta over San Francisco. New England has been nigh unstoppable, Tennessee has been terrible and just fired their coach, and San Francisco is a dumpster fire. To predict a different outcome in these games would probably require the most powerful hallucinatory drugs ever created. Conversely, the 11 of us are split 6-5 on two games. We barely give Pittsburgh the edge over Oakland and the nod to Minnesota over St. Louis.

And now, to our picks!
