John and I were both 6-9 last week, bringing our season records to 37-53-2 and 36-54-2 respectively.
We both had Seattle on Thursday which pushed at 8 points.
Here are this weeks' picks:
1.) New England Patriots (5-1) (-4.5) at New York Jets (3-3)
Rob Gronkowski is back. The Jets don't have enough.
2.) San Diego Chargers (3-3) (-7.5) at Jacksonville Jaguars (0-6)
Philip Rivers is one of the great stories of the season. The Jaguars are not rolling over, but still I can't pick them.
3.) Detroit Lions (4-2) at home (-2.5) vs. Cincinnati Bengals (4-2)
Home field matters.
4.) Miami Dolphins (3-2) at home (-7) vs. Buffalo Bills (2-4)
Too many points
PREDICTION: BILLS TO COVER
5.) Chicago Bears (4-2) (-1) at Washington Redskins (1-4)
I'm tempted to take the Redskins, but my stomach can't take that kind of punishment.
6.) Philadelphia Eagles (3-3) at home (-3) vs. Dallas Cowboys (3-3)
The Cowboys lose Demarcus Ware and Demarco Murray at the worst time.
7.) Carolina Panthers (2-3) at home (-7) vs. St. Louis Rams (3-3)
Did Nevada legalize marijuana? This line makes no sense.
8.) Atlanta Falcons (1-4) at home (-6.5) vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-5)
Too many points.
PREDICTION: BUCS TO COVER
9.) San Francisco 49ers (4-2) (-3.5) at Tennessee Titans (3-3)
Jake Locker returns. It won't matter.
10.) Kansas City Chiefs (6-0) at home (-6.5) vs. Houston Texans (2-4)
The Chiefs defense vs. a rookie QB? Cue the theme from JAWS.
11.) Green Bay Packers (3-2) at home (-10) vs. Cleveland Browns (3-3) '
If Brandon Weeden weren't the QB, I'd take the points, but he is starting.
12.) Pittsburgh Steelers (1-4) at home (-1.5) vs. Baltimore Ravens (3-3)
13.) Denver Broncos (6-0) (-6.5) at Indianapolis Colts (4-2)
Thanks to THE DISH and Channel 8 in Tampa Bay I will not be able to watch Sunday Night Football for the third week in a row. FUCK YOU ALL!!!!!!!!
My gut says take the points, but Jim Irsay requires me to use my head.
14.) New York Giants (0-6) at home (-3.5) vs. Minnesota Vikings (1-4)
UGH!!! Josh Freeman starts? UGH!!!!!
