Again, gotta be quick. I’ll do a standings update and another round of bowls tomorrow…
Bills @ Philly(-7.5)
Two mediocre teams in a meaningless game. I don’t see the Eagles as being that much better, but the Bills look kind of done. I guess I’ll give the points.
Panthers @ Tampa(+2.5)
Hmm, apparently the Bucs are going to be resting everyone, that’s the only reason for a spread like that here. The Panthers appear to be trying to save Fox’s job, I think they’ll actually play this game and even cover.
Bengals @ Miami(+2.5)
Awful, awful, awful. I’ll take Cinci, I guess.
Lions @ Green Bay(-5)
That’s pathetic. The Packers have nothing to play for and they’re still big favorites over the Lions. Well, the Lions ache on the road and the Packers probably don’t want to look like they’re limping into the playoffs, so I’ll give the points.
Jaguars @ Houston(-6.5)
Even with Taylor and Jones-Drew resting, why would people think the Texans are a full TD better? What’s in it for them? Sage Rosenfels? Meh, I’ll take the Jags and the points.
Seahawks @ Atlanta(-1)
Again, obviously the Seabags are resting guys. Atlanta doesn’t care, either, do they? Seahawks, though, I guess.
Niners @ Cleveland(-11.5)
The Browns actually need this game to still have a shot at the playoffs, don’t they? I’ll give the points.
Saints @ Chicago(+1.5)
I think the Saints will actually try to win this game, just to end the season on a positive note going into next year, where maybe they can come back and contend in a weak division. The Bears, on the other hand, have nothing to play for at all. I’ll give the 1.5.
Cowboys @ Washington(-9)
Will Dallas play anyone here? I know I wouldn’t. Redskins.
Steelers @ Baltimore(+3)
Possibly one of the better games this week, since these teams seem to legitimately not like each other. I like Pittsburgh here.
Vikings @ Denver(+3)
I don’t see why the Vikings are favored. They screwed their chances last week (and looked horrible doing it, or so I’m told) and Jackson has regressed. Why would they be up for a road game in a tough place to paly? Denver.
Chargers @ Oakland(+8)
The Raiders have basically mailed it in for the season, right? Give the points.
Rams @ Arizona(-6)
Cardinals, I guess. No idea.
Chefs @ New Jersey Meadowlands(-5.5)
I’m going to have to go with the Jets here, because KC is just vile.
Titans @ Indy(+5)
I’ll actually be really rooting for the Colts here because I’d much rather see the Browns in the playoffs than the Titans. Because of that, the Titans will win, of course. Indy will rest everybody, as usual, so I don’t see this as being all that close. Titans.
