What. A. Week. For many out there, all of the hopes and dreams of winning the #CircaSurvivor grand prize have come to an unfortunate end. We only have 30 percent of the field remaining in the Survivor Pool, with over 2400 Jaguars entries being chopped completely. To be honest, everyone thought the Jaguars would win that game. Oh well, same old Jaguars! The best part about this is that Chat GPT called the Texans’ win over the Jaguars the “Least Favorite Pick” of the week. So if you saw the previous week’s article and used that to make your pick, don’t blame me! Blame Chat GPT. Anyways, for those of you who still have entries, please continue on with the article to find AI’s picks of the week.
Favorite Pick – Green Bay Packers over Detroit Lions
Starting with the favorite pick of the week, we have a very interesting choice from Artificial Intelligence. While the Detroit Lions have looked like an offensive weapon in the past weeks, Chat GPT likes the Packers over the Lions. Here are some of the reasons it gave me:
● Historical Dominance: Green Bay has a strong historical record against Detroit, particularly in home games at Lambeau Field.
● Home Field Advantage: Green Bay is known for its significant home-field advantage, particularly during night games.
● Recent Success: The Packers have consistently been a playoff team in recent years, while the Lions have struggled.
While Chat GPT gives some pretty good thoughts into its pick, I believe that this matchup is going to be a little bit on the risky side. Homefield advantage is going to play
a big part in this matchup, yet you may want to exercise caution before using Green Bay this early in the pool. Overall, I like this pick a lot.
Riskiest Pick – Baltimore Ravens over Cleveland Browns
With Nick Chubb’s season-ending injury, one may have thought that the Browns offense was going to slow up. This has not been the case, at least so far. The Cleveland Browns handled the Tennessee Titans last week, with backup running back Jerome Ford filling the void in the run game. Let’s see what Chat GPT has to say about this “Risky Pick”:
● Divisional Matchup: Both teams are in the AFC North and have strong rosters, making divisional games unpredictable.
● Key Players: Both teams have key players whose performance can significantly influence the game’s outcome.
● Recent Matchups: Recent matchups between these two teams have been closely contested, adding to the uncertainty of picking a clear winner.
The Ravens are hot off a big home loss to the Indianapolis Colts. While they are still a very competitive team, with a lot to look forward to, I expect the Ravens to struggle against some good teams in the near future. For right now, the Browns look like one of those “good teams”. Exercise high caution before using the Ravens this week.
Least Favorite Pick – Atlanta Falcons over Jacksonville Jaguars
I know this seems like a bold choice, especially with the Jaguars losing to the Texans just last week, but I just can’t see a world in which Jacksonville drops this one. Let’s look into what the Artificial Intelligence had to say about this matchup:
● Uncertain Performance: Both teams have faced challenges and inconsistencies in recent seasons, making this game unpredictable.
● Location: The game is being played in London, which adds an additional variable that can impact team performance and eliminate home-field advantage.
● Rebuilding Phases: Both teams were in the process of rebuilding or retooling their rosters, which can contribute to inconsistent performance.
Atlanta has been silencing the doubters so far this season, putting up a stronger battle than most expected, but do not overthink this. Each team has only played three games, with a lot more information that is yet to be revealed until later in the season. The Jaguars lost to a divisional opponent, which is always hard to predict. Jacksonville is simply the better team in this matchup, and I would go ahead and take them if you haven’t utilized them thus far in the #CircaSurvivor Pool.
