Ravens @ Jacksonville(6.5)
Baltimore is done. Yes, they got up for that game at Pittsburgh, but that was it. They’re finished.
Texans @ Indy(17)
Letdown game for Indy? That sure is a big number. As much as I’d love to see the Texans make a game of it, I think the Colts cover it anyway.
Cardinals @ Detroit(3.5)
OK, I think Garcia is out again, which means there’s no way I pick the Lions.
Niners @ Chicago(13)
That’s a huge number! I don’t doubt that the Bears will win, but come on, by 13? Nah.
Chefs @ Buffalo(2.5)
I fail to see why the Bills would be favored here. Gimme KC.
Patriots(2.5) @ Miami
A toughie. So far the Pats have perfectly alternated wins and losses, and they lost last week. That’s as good a theory as any other–Pats.
Vikings @ New Jersey NFC(9.5)
The Vikings had their day in the sun last week. Brad’s true colors show through. Or rather, the Vikings defense does its thing and gives up like 40 on the road. Either way, Jints cover.

Broncos(3) @ Oakland
Rivalry game, I guess. I like Denver, even on the road.
Jest @ Carolina(9)
This is actually a really tough pick. Again, I’m certainly of the belief that the Panthers cover, but 9 is a lot against the surprisingly game Jest. Of course, no Chrebet–better go with Carolina.
Rams @ Seattle(6.5)
I’ll stick with the Seabags at home.
Packers @ Atlanta(9)
Vick could go 2 for 5 for 12 yards and the Falcons would still cover this.
Skins @ Tampa, pick
Weird spread. Has anybody noticed that the Bucs have sucked since Griese went down? Oh, wait, since Cadillac went down. Well, whatever, they suck. Washington.
Browns @ Pittsburgh(7.5)
Even with Charlie Batch at the helm, I don’t see the Stillers letting Cleveland into this game at any point.
Cowboys @ Philly(3)
Cool, I get to pick against Philly and I get a field goal. Sweet.
