10. #50 Davison (1-2) at Grand Blanc (1-2) even with the loosing records this game is huge, whoever falls to 1-3 can kiss the playoffs good bye, and both of these teams have way too much talent to miss the playoffs. Expect to see sophomore QB's Ryan Morley (Grand Blanc) and Jake Thompson (Davison) put up huge numbers.
NGS PICK- Davison 48-35
9. Detroit Cody (3-0) at. #42 Detroit Henry Ford (3-0) the winner will be in sole control of first place in the PSL Division 2. Henry Ford has an experienced tough minded team and was everyone's pick to win their division of the PSL while Cody has had a huge turnaround from last year.
NGS PICK- Henry Ford 28-14
8. Flint Powers (1-2) at #49 Country Day (2-1) I look for Country Day to bounce back from last week's lost and take their frustration out on Powers. The Yellowjackets have too much team speed for Powers to handle. Patrick Lucas-Perry and Patrick O'Brien has been good for Powers but the Chargers need to find more weapons to put points on the scoreboard.
NGS PICK- Country Day 35- 17
7. #45 Dearborn Edsel Ford (3-0) at #18 Inkster (2-1) this will be Inkster's game to prove that they are an legitimate elite team. We all know the talent they possess at the skill positions but Inkster hasn't had the start that everyone predicted. The tough win over Zeeland West was suppose to be a statement but West has started 0-3. Edsel Ford will try to use ball control to steal the win.
NGS PICK- Inkster 32-21
6. Divine Child (2-1) at #29 Nouvel CC (3-0) this is the first time in a long time to see how Nouvel stacks up against the Detroit Catholic League. Nouvel has won two consecutive State Championships, and is on their way to a third, and still lacks state wide respect. Nouvel is loaded on both sides of the ball and a balanced offensive attack will overwhelm Divine Child.
NGS PICK- Nouvel 31-13
5. #20 Detroit CC (2-0) at #10 Brother Rice (2-1) the young Shamrocks will have to grow up fast if they want to compete with Brother Rice. Rice not only has the experience factor but they have D-1 talent scattered all over the field. The backfield of Shaquille Marshall and Danny Henneghan will be too much for CC to handle.
NGS PICK- Brother Rice 27-17
4. #36 Grosse Pointe North (3-0) at #32 Warren Cousino (2-1) and a freshman will lead them! Cousino has gotten it together since their week 1 beating from Stevenson and allot of that credit has to be given to QB Brian Blackburn, the freshman has taken control of the Patriot offense and will need to come up big this week. The winner will be in cruise control of the MAC-White.
NGS PICK- Cousino 27-24
3. #30 OLSM (2-1) at #7 De La Salle (3-0) the individual match-ups in this game are great- John and Jim Martinez against Suave Lavallis and company. Whoever can establish their run game first will get the upper hand in the passing game. De La Salle will also have to find a way to contain Robert Bolden, however the Pilots do have the speed to match up with Orchard Lake. This game will show how much St. Mary's misses Dion Sims.
NGS PICK- De La Salle 31-24
2. #26 Grand Ledge (3-0) at #9 Lansing Everett (3-0) both teams feature headline names with James Jackson of Grand Ledge and Reggie Williams of Everett. GL will have a tougher time trying to slow down Williams, while Everett's D-back Lavelle Walker has the tools to stay with Jackson.
NGS PICK- Everett 34- 20
1. #6 Rockford (3-0) at #5 Hudsonville (3-0) trainers will need to have the ice ready after this game because both teams will be bringing the lumber. Hudsonville is determined to run the ball, so the deciding factor will be if Jordan Jonker can find running room against that tough Rockford linebacker core.
NGS PICK- Rockford 23-21
