DOLPHINS at PATRIOTS
Line: Patriots by 7 1/2
Vs Spread: 72.1% of you picked the PATRIOTS
Straight-Up: 92.5% of you picked the PATRIOTS
DOLPHINS
PATRIOTS
I overestimated Miami's recent play and New England's ability to continue dominating.
LIONS at CHIEFS
Line: Chiefs by 4 1/2
Vs Spread: 64.7% of you picked the CHIEFS
Straight-Up: 82.8% of you picked the CHIEFS
LIONS
LIONS
Detroit has talent. Hard to believe their record is so bad. Chiefs record is just as bad. How are they favored by 4.5 at a neutral site?
CHARGERS at RAVENS
Line: Ravens by 2 1/2
Vs Spread: 59% of you picked the RAVENS
Straight-Up: 62.8% of you picked the RAVENS
RAVENS
RAVENS
Baltimore has lost mostly close games and San Diego, despite Rivers going off this year, has underachieved almost as bad. I've been on the Chargers a bunch this season. It's time to get off the bandwagon.
BENGALS at STEELERS
Line: Bengals by 1 1/2
Vs Spread: 63.7% of you picked the BENGALS
Straight-Up: 67.2% of you picked the BENGALS
STEELERS
STEELERS
Big Ben is back and this is where the Bengals undefeated run ends.
TITANS at TEXANS
Line: Texans by 3 1/2
Vs Spread: 68.7% of you picked the TEXANS
Straight-Up: 81.5% of you picked the TEXANS
TITANS
TITANS
Tennessee's D is the real deal and Houston's has not been great this year. Titans with the upset.
VIKINGS at BEARS
Line: Vikings by 1 1/2
Vs Spread: 75% of you picked the VIKINGS
Straight-Up: 81.8% of you picked the VIKINGS
BEARS
BEARS
Bears at home still have bite. I can't figure out whether the Vikings are really a good game. Consider me still a doubter.
BUCCANEERS at FALCONS
Line: Falcons by 6 1/2
Vs Spread: 83.6% of you picked the FALCONS
Straight-Up: 97.6% of you picked the FALCONS
FALCONS
FALCONS
The Falcons have cooled off big time. Struggled with this pick, but just think this is the week they get back on track.
GIANTS at SAINTS
Line: Saints by 2 1/2
Vs Spread: 63.8% of you picked the SAINTS
Straight-Up: 71.1% of you picked the SAINTS
GIANTS
GIANTS
Another toss-up. Giants in Eli's hometown in a shootout.
49ERS at RAMS
Line: Rams by 8 1/2
Vs Spread: 50.9% of you picked the RAMS
Straight-Up: 90.5% of you picked the RAMS
49ERS
RAMS
That's a lot of points to give for a mediocre Rams offense.
CARDINALS at BROWNS
Line: Cardinals by 4 1/2
Vs Spread: 85.4% of you picked the CARDINALS
Straight-Up: 94.8% of you picked the CARDINALS
CARDINALS
CARDINALS
Arizona has their down games but most weeks they are bringing it.
JETS at RAIDERS
Line: Jets by 1 1/2
Vs Spread: 63.9% of you picked the JETS
Straight-Up: 65.6% of you picked the JETS
JETS
JETS
This looks like a sucker play. Jets with one of the best defenses in the league are a very short road favorite. What does Vegas know?
SEAHAWKS at COWBOYS
Line: Seahawks by 5 1/2
Vs Spread: 70.8% of you picked the SEAHAWKS
Straight-Up: 84.9% of you picked the SEAHAWKS
COWBOYS
SEAHAWKS
Seattle may squeak out with a win but they haven't been dominant all season.
PACKERS at BRONCOS
Line: Packers by 2 1/2
Vs Spread: 71.1% of you picked the PACKERS
Straight-Up: 73.8% of you picked the PACKERS
BRONCOS
BRONCOS
Broncos D at home should win the day.
COLTS at PANTHERS
Line: Panthers by 6 1/2
Vs Spread: 74.5% of you picked the PANTHERS
Straight-Up: 92.4% of you picked the PANTHERS
COLTS
PANTHERS
With Luck, Indy is a backdoor covering machine. Go Panthers!

Good luck with your own picks this week!
