All home favorites this week…
Cardinals @ New Orleans(-7)
Gotta like the Saints at home to win, but I’m not so sure about this many points. The Saints did not finish the season looking good, and the Cardinals offense was pretty much on fire last week. Oh, yeah, but their defense failed to show up, and they’ll on the road at New Orleans. No, no, it’s still too many points, I have to take them.
Ravens @ Indianapolis(-6)
I hate the Colts so much for tanking it mid-game against the Jets that and it would be such awesome karmic retribution if they were to lose this game… but I don’t think they will. Flacco is hurt and I really don’t think the Ravens can have, what, 30 yards passing again and win. Give the points, but I’ll be rooting hard for the Ravens.
Cowboys @ Minnesota(-2.5)
Everyone and their brother is taking the Cowboys, who have looked great twice in a row against… the Eagles, a team that has no idea what the phrase “running game” means. Meh. The Vikings will run, and have guys who can actually rush Romo without selling out to blitz like the Eagles. I’m giving the points.
Jets @ San Diego(-7)
I think the Chargers win this game because Revis can’t cover everybody, but I don’t like giving that many points, so I’ll take the Jets.
