Some surprising things happened last NFL Sunday. Among the more predictable things, Detroit laid a goose egg last, the Patriots blew out the Titans. In what seemed like a uncompetitive video game, Tom Brady threw 5 touchdowns in a quarter. The Raiders won and found their swagger when defensive force, Seymour guaranteed the 2-4 Raiders will be in the playoffs. Favre lead another classic comeback against the Ravens. In a epic AFC West battle, Denver went to 6-0 and took command of the division.
San Diego -5 At Kansas City
Although it may seem easy for some teams to on the road and win I can assure you it takes an extreme amount of preparation and focus. San Diego is hurting after the Monday night loss, looking to take advantage of the struggling chiefs. Chargers by at least three touchdowns in a resounding blowout.
Indianapolis -13.5 At St. Louis
Peyton Manning is playing like he hit three threes in a row and is on FIRE! It may seem easy, but yes Peyton has talent, he might be the hardest working player ion the NFL. This just might be his year again. How have the Rams not won a single blood clout game? Maybe because Jackson has not reached the end-zone, their top reviver has less can 20 catches. Look for the Rams to stink up the joint and Peyton to have a career day.
At Pittsburgh -5.5 Minnesota
In an epic battle, a tale that will be told for ages. Minnesota will win again on the last drive of the game. Expect hats to fly, bones to crush in a football purist game. The under is a lock, some might call it a defensive or a offensive struggle, it will be two teams fighting for a crucial win. But both teams have the ability to take their shots down field. Both defensives are too good to give up the deep play. This is why I stay away from the over/under.
At Houston -3 San Francisco
Houston is coming off an emotional and tough victory against the Bengals. San Francisco will be extra prepared coming off the buy week. The under looks as good as the 49ers defense. Willis, Spikes and Lawson will not let Houston run the ball at all. The Texans will be forced to pass into a talented San Francisco secondary, look for a couple of interceptions, maybe some fumbles. The 49ers by a field goal.
NY Jets -6 At Oakland
Oakland will be inspired by last weeks victory and the home crowd. Oakland will not ask much of the quarterback by controlling the ball with the running game. Jamarcus Russell will get a couple of shot down field and might hit one. Dirty Sanchez, will be covered in dirt and grass from the blitzing Raider Defensive. The Jets will be within striking distance and Sanchez will have his opportunity to win. The under looks great, Oakland by a field goal.
Last Week: 4-2
