Another week of games, another chance for me to be COMPLETELY WRONG. Home teams, as always, in bold.
Indy (-6) over Jacksonville
Yeah. Well. I know Indy barely beat Detroit, and the Jags looked decent last week, and Marvin Harrison isn't playing...I dunno. I just think Manning is going to continue to find a way to win. Now I feel dirty.
Baltimore (+4) over Dallas
This is more my heart than my brain, since the Falcons need Dallas to lose. But I will say this; I think this Baltimore offensive line is playing WAY better than the Giants one Ware and company victimized last week on Sunday night.
Cleveland (-2.5) over Cincy
Fitzpatrick! Dorsey! I thought the Seattle/St. Louis game was the worst match up of the year. I was mistaken.
Detroit (-7) over New Orleans
Don't get me wrong, Detroit loses this game. They won't win at all this year...but they have been feisty, and who on the Saints covers Calvin "Megatron" Johnson? Exactly.
Pittsburgh (+2) over Tennessee
Tennessee is beat up, they look to be taking their foot off the throttle, and the Steelers only have one speed. Knocking people over/out.
Miami (-4) over Kansas City
This line could not be high enough.
San Francisco (-5.5) over St. Louis
One of these interim coaches needs to be held on to after the season. It is not Scott Linnehan.
New England (-7.5) over Arizona
The 'nothing to play for' Cardinals coming east to play in what looks to be sloppy conditions in Foxboro. Hm.
San Diego (+3.5) over Tampa Bay
So, apparently the Chargers are REALLY going to try to force this showdown next week to see which 8-8 team will be representing the AFC West. Ugh.
Seattle (+5) over Jets
Wait, wait, wait. The Jets haven't come close to looking like a decent team on the West Coast all year, and they're GIVING 5 points to a kinda feisty Seahawks team, on the day of Mike Holmgren's last home game?
Houston (-7) over Oakland
Natural tease...that's all I'm sayin...
Buffalo (+6.5) over Denver
And the only thing standing in the way of my AFC West perfect storm is the Buffalo Bills? I guess it wasn't meant to be.
Philly (-5) over Washington
If Jim Zorn can stop looking over his shoulder for a knife wielding Dan Snyder, they might have a chance.
Atlanta (+3) over Minnesota
Memories of 1998. 10 years!
Carolina (-3) over Giants
How am I taking this many road teams? File that under obvious foreshadowing.
Chicago (-4) over Green Bay
One of these teams has something to play for. The other wishes they hadn't let Bret Favre go.
