JETS at PATRIOTS
Line: Patriots by 9 1/2
Vs Spread: 73% of you picked the PATRIOTS
Straight-Up: 96.8% of you picked the PATRIOTS
JETS
PATRIOTS
Based on recent play and the typical Thursday night blowouts, this feels like a bit of a stretch to pick the Jets. But this could be Rex's last hurrah and I think he will have the Jets ready to play. They nearly covered last week vs. the Broncos before a late pick-6. I like the Pats to win but not cover.
FALCONS at RAVENS
Line: Ravens by 6 1/2
Vs Spread: 74.4% of you picked the RAVENS
Straight-Up: 93.8% of you picked the RAVENS
FALCONS
RAVENS
Another split pick for me due to all the points. This will be the typical NFL flip flop I think. The team that looked unstoppable last week vs. the team that looks hopeless. And the hopelessly lost team covers and almost wins outright.
VIKINGS at BILLS
Line: Bills by 4 1/2
Vs Spread: 80.5% of you picked the BILLS
Straight-Up: 92% of you picked the BILLS
BILLS
BILLS
I may have overestimated Teddy Bridgewater's impact last week. He's going to have his ups and downs. Buffalo's D has been solid all year and should be all over him.
DOLPHINS at BEARS
Line: Bears by 2 1/2
Vs Spread: 78.4% of you picked the BEARS
Straight-Up: 85.2% of you picked the BEARS
BEARS
BEARS
The Bears still look very potent on offense and the D is coming around. They haven't had too many stellar performances at home so I figure they are due for one here.
SAINTS at LIONS
Line: Lions by 2 1/2
Vs Spread: 61.3% of you picked the LIONS
Straight-Up: 72.4% of you picked the LIONS
SAINTS
SAINTS
I keep sticking with the Saints. This week they are coming off a bye and can't afford to hit 2-4. Meanwhile Detroit bounced back from a head-scratching loss to the Bills to take care of the Vikings last week. The Lions D is stiff, but with Megatron questionable that may not be enough against Brees and co.
PANTHERS at PACKERS
Line: Packers by 6 1/2
Vs Spread: 65.7% of you picked the PACKERS
Straight-Up: 91.9% of you picked the PACKERS
PANTHERS
PACKERS
The Panthers let a W slip away last week on the road against the Bengals. They could be in for a repeat at Lambeau. As Rodgers showed last week, he has that late game savvy to pull out a close one.
BENGALS at COLTS
Line: Colts by 2 1/2
Vs Spread: 77.2% of you picked the COLTS
Straight-Up: 82.7% of you picked the COLTS
COLTS
COLTS
The Colts have been on a roll and with the Bengals regressing, I think this will be an easy cover for Indy.
BROWNS at JAGUARS
Line: Browns by 5 1/2
Vs Spread: 76.3% of you picked the BROWNS
Straight-Up: 91.5% of you picked the BROWNS
BROWNS
BROWNS
The Browns are legit division contenders now. After such a big win last week, they could be ripe for a letdown, but the Jaguars keep finding ways to lose. So I can't pick them with confidence.
SEAHAWKS at RAMS
Line: Seahawks by 6 1/2
Vs Spread: 87.2% of you picked the SEAHAWKS
Straight-Up: 95% of you picked the SEAHAWKS
SEAHAWKS
SEAHAWKS
Seattle should be fired up for this division battle after last week's humbling loss to the Cowboys. The Rams are competent but I don't trust the Rams QB under pressure. He will likely have a tough day against the Hawks.
TITANS at REDSKINS
Line: Redskins by 5 1/2
Vs Spread: 51.8% of you picked the REDSKINS
Straight-Up: 69.2% of you picked the REDSKINS
TITANS
TITANS
Washington is not good enough to be giving 5.5 points to anyone. The Titans are very capable and I am picking them to win this outright.
CHIEFS at CHARGERS
Line: Chargers by 3 1/2
Vs Spread: 75.7% of you picked the CHARGERS
Straight-Up: 87.9% of you picked the CHARGERS
CHIEFS
CHIEFS
The Chiefs are coming off a bye and should be ready to cool off the Chargers. I figure San Diego's run has to end at some point and this looks like a prime spot for it.
GIANTS at COWBOYS
Line: Cowboys by 5 1/2
Vs Spread: 73% of you picked the COWBOYS
Straight-Up: 90.5% of you picked the COWBOYS
COWBOYS
COWBOYS
I may be late to the Cowboys bandwagon, but I'm hopping on this week. Normally it'd be prime letdown territory after beating the defending champs last week, but this is the Giants. With Jennings out for the Giants, the Dallas D should continue to dominate.
CARDINALS at RAIDERS
Line: Cardinals by 3 1/2
Vs Spread: 84.4% of you picked the CARDINALS
Straight-Up: 91.4% of you picked the CARDINALS
RAIDERS
CARDINALS
Oakland has been a big tease at times this year -- covering against both the Chargers and Patriots recently, and almost winning outright. I'm not sure they can do it two weeks in a row, but I'll ride Derek Carr for one week.
49ERS at BRONCOS
Line: Broncos by 6 1/2
Vs Spread: 64.6% of you picked the BRONCOS
Straight-Up: 86.8% of you picked the BRONCOS
49ERS
BRONCOS
This should be a great game. San Francisco has started to play like the Super Bowl contenders many folks expected them to be while the Broncos alternately dominate and then look mortal. I'm picking the middle here, Broncos win but 49ers cover.
TEXANS at STEELERS
Line: Steelers by 3 1/2
Vs Spread: 51.1% of you picked the TEXANS
Straight-Up: 61.9% of you picked the STEELERS
TEXANS
TEXANS
Fitzpatrick has been somewhat inconsistent but the Steelers have been worse. Maybe they get it together this week, but I like the Texans, both to cover and win outright.

Good luck with your own picks this week!
