Last week was disappointing. The Patriots hanging on to beat the Dolphins, the Cowboys proving themselves against Philly and the Panthers playing above expectations and fighting hard to beat the spread. After winning only a game last week, I am poised to stay above five-hundred for the season. On to the money making picks!
At Pittsburgh -7 Cincinnati
Pittsburgh's championship defense will continue to do what they do. The Natti, has been playing like team with something to prove, improved defense, Ocho and the Palmer are playing they way Cincinnati expected. What a slobber knocker this game is gonna be.
At Tennessee -7.5 Buffalo
Vince Young and Chris Johnson looked terrific against the average 49ers. Facing another team disgraced in mediocrity, the Buffalo Bills. If the Bills quarterback can get the ball to Terrell Owens on a few deep plays the Bills defensive will get a shot keeping this game competitive.
New Orleans -14 At St. Louis
The Saints struggled early but came roaring back in a classic comeback last week. Look for Brees to not fall behind at all and light up the Rams for a bunch of yards and passing touchdowns. Reggie Bush will again be all lover the field and has the ability to score anywhere on that field. Bush might even jump from the 10 yard line into the end zone this week. Saints in a rout, the over is looking great.
Atlanta -1.5 At Carolina
Atlanta looked like a team with something play for against the struggling 'Skins. Carolina fought hard against the Saints but came up well short. Carolina will keep this game competitive. Look for both quarterbacks to be slinging the ball a lot. Atlanta defensive just might take advantage of this and intercept a few Delhomme passes.
Dallas -3 At Green Bay
Almost a throw back to the 90's in a tough, rugged frozen tundra. Both teams still in the hunt. Green Bay up against the ropes a bit. Aaron Rodgers, the kid from Bute, has everything to prove with his team struggling. The Packers looked pathetic against the creme sickle throwbacks Buccaneers. Looked for Green Bay to play inspired on all sides of the ball. Fired up at Lambeau Field, the Packers defensive will get at Romo and he will falter as will the Dallas defense. Green Bay in a close low scorning ground game, slug fest, a purist's game.
Last Week: 1-3
