Swami says Browns and Lions both will lose

Blade sports writer Dave Hackenberg is on vacation, but his friend the Swami, that mystical seer and prodigious pigskin prognosticator, phoned in his weekly NFL picks, much like the Minnesota Vikings have elected to phone in the rest of the season. What a bunch of quitters. The Swami figures someone must have spiked his eggnog last week, which might explain why he tabbed Randy Moss to actually care and the Vikings to win. Never again.
