SAINTS at PANTHERS
Line: Saints by 2 1/2
Vs Spread: 65.3% of you picked the SAINTS
Straight-Up: 70.9% of you picked the SAINTS
PANTHERS
PANTHERS
If you have any doubts about this pick, just know that I will be rooting the Panthers on in person. They didn't let me down last year in this same Thursday night spot against the Patriots. So I'm not worried. :-D
JAGUARS at BENGALS
Line: Bengals by 10 1/2
Vs Spread: 68% of you picked the BENGALS
Straight-Up: 97.2% of you picked the BENGALS
JAGUARS
BENGALS
I'm on almost every underdog this week, especially the big spreads. Sure, some of these might be blowouts for the favorite, but the numbers are in my favor over the long haul. The Bengals are in a prime letdown spot here after the big division last week.
BUCCANEERS at BROWNS
Line: Browns by 6 1/2
Vs Spread: 76.9% of you picked the BROWNS
Straight-Up: 95.6% of you picked the BROWNS
BUCCANEERS
BROWNS
The Bucs are alternating bad and not that bad weeks. I'm guessing this is a not bad week, at least enough to keep it close.
CARDINALS at COWBOYS
Line: Cowboys by 3 1/2
Vs Spread: 56.7% of you picked the CARDINALS
Straight-Up: 52.7% of you picked the COWBOYS
CARDINALS
CARDINALS
The Cardinals should mimic the Redskins approach on defense and bring the house against Romo and his contused back. I think they will and send Dallas to their second straight loss.
EAGLES at TEXANS
Line: Eagles by 1 1/2
Vs Spread: 67.8% of you picked the EAGLES
Straight-Up: 75.1% of you picked the EAGLES
TEXANS
TEXANS
The Eagles played well last week but gave up a big play at the end to lose. Houston is another tough matchup for them and I like JJ Watt and co.
JETS at CHIEFS
Line: Chiefs by 9 1/2
Vs Spread: 67.6% of you picked the CHIEFS
Straight-Up: 96.1% of you picked the CHIEFS
JETS
CHIEFS
Vick is finally starting for the Jets. I'm not sure he'll be any better but I think he gives them a chance to stay close in this one.
CHARGERS at DOLPHINS
Line: Dolphins by 1 1/2
Vs Spread: 61.6% of you picked the CHARGERS
Straight-Up: 60.1% of you picked the CHARGERS
CHARGERS
CHARGERS
I realize the Dolphins have been playing better lately but I'm surprised to see them favored over the Chargers. With San Diego needing to bounce back from the Broncos loss, I really like them here.
REDSKINS at VIKINGS
Line: Vikings by 2 1/2
Vs Spread: 50.6% of you picked the REDSKINS
Straight-Up: 55% of you picked the VIKINGS
REDSKINS
REDSKINS
RGIII could return and the Skins should have renewed confidence after shutting down Dallas. They are underdogs here despite that. I'm not ready to back Teddy Bridgewater until he gets a few more wins under his belt.
RAMS at 49ERS
Line: 49ers by 9 1/2
Vs Spread: 63.6% of you picked the 49ERS
Straight-Up: 96.7% of you picked the 49ERS
RAMS
49ERS
Another big spread for a divisional matchup. The Rams usually hang tough with the Niners and I expect them to here.
BRONCOS at PATRIOTS
Line: Broncos by 2 1/2
Vs Spread: 61.3% of you picked the BRONCOS
Straight-Up: 68.6% of you picked the BRONCOS
BRONCOS
BRONCOS
Peyton and co. are an OT possession away from being undefeated. With the Patriots on fire right now, this should be a great game. I still give Manning the nod.
RAIDERS at SEAHAWKS
Line: Seahawks by 14 1/2
Vs Spread: 61.5% of you picked the SEAHAWKS
Straight-Up: 97% of you picked the SEAHAWKS
RAIDERS
SEAHAWKS
Despite being winless, the Raiders have a capable attack with Derek Carr and stingy defense. Seattle is no juggernaut right now, even at home. So that's a lot of points to give.
RAVENS at STEELERS
Line: Steelers by 1/2
Vs Spread: 64% of you picked the STEELERS
Straight-Up: 72.2% of you picked the STEELERS
RAVENS
RAVENS
Big Ben had such a career day last week it's tough to pick against him at home. I just think the Ravens are the better team.
COLTS at GIANTS
Line: Colts by 2 1/2
Vs Spread: 77% of you picked the COLTS
Straight-Up: 84.8% of you picked the COLTS
COLTS
COLTS
The Colts got steamrolled by Big Ben last week but had been on a big roll. Despite the speed bump, Andrew Luck is still playing well and putting up points. The Giants can't keep up.

Good luck with your own picks this week!
