Analysis: How the hell do you pick a winner in a game that features two losers? This game is a total crapshoot. In my opinion, the key factor here is that San Francisco is a favorite, yet they are 0-4 on the road this season.

Prediction: This thing could go a million different ways. As bad as Derek Anderson has been, I still like him more than Troy Smith.

Current Monday/Thursday Record: 13-4-1 (3-0 on Thanksgiving)

Pick: I’ll take a home dog in a primetime divisional rivalry any day of the week. Give me the Cardinals and the points.
