I picked the Chiefs over the Eagles at -3, it was edited out. Whatever. 8-7-1 last week, I'll count the first two weeks as all losses.
8-39-1, I'm looking for a good ol' Eli-in-his-prime comeback this year!
49ERS -3.5 at RAMS (Thurs.)
Look for the Rams to cure the Niners current ailments. Even with multiple major injuries, 'Frisco is in a pseudo-must-win game against an inferior team. If they drop this one, the Niners go into complete panic mode.
RAVENS -3 at BILLS
EJ Manuel faces his biggest challenge this weekend; the Ravens aren't the Diet Patriots of Week 1 or the team that Ron Rivera is making bonehead decisions for. Watch EJ struggle for the first time this season.
BENGALS -4.5 at BROWNS
Hoyer shocked some fans when he bested a bad Vikings team on the road, especially after all the controversy that surrounded the game. The Bengals are a way better team...the Browns are getting outscored 37-16 by good teams.
BEARS +3 at LIONS
Has their ever been a team with so much talent that you can't trust? Detroit lost in Arizona then made Washington look like an NFL team again. Chicago is doing very good things under Marc Trestman and a revamped linebacking corp. The Bears are easily in my top three favorite teams to watch.
GIANTS +4.5 at CHIEFS
This seems like the perfect scenario for the "Nobody Believes in Us So We Win a Game We Shouldn't" version of Coughlin and the Giants.
STEELERS -2.5 at VIKINGS
CARDINALS +2.5 at BUCCANEERS
Two bad teams beating even worse teams at home. And yes, Glennon gives the Bucs their best chances to win.
COLTS -9 at JAGUARS
NOTHING TO SEE HERE!
SEAHAWKS -2.5 at TEXANS
Did you see Andre Johnson last week? He was playing at like 60%. Against a great Seattle secondary, you're going to need 100% from him and Hopkins and Schaub and Foster and Tate...get it?
JETS +3.5 at TITANS
You gotta give credit where it's due; Rex Ryan is putting his team in the best position to win every week. With a revamped defensive system that's taking a lot off of Geno Smith's shoulder, this team is looking at five to seven wins. But let's not forget, this team is a play or two from being 0-3.
Is Mike Goodson a good fantasy pick-up?
EAGLES +11 at BRONCOS
Them Birds will need a whole lot of help to even keep this close. Peyton is playing the best year of his career...which is weird because he's 37. I feel bad for all the neck jokes I made last year.
REDSKINS -3.5 at RAIDERS
That half point puts me over the top. The 'Skins best chance for Win No. 1 is this week, but a blowout seems farfetched. Also, Terrelle Pryor is fun to watch. You gotta give this guy props; if it wasn't for him, Urban Meyer wouldn't be undefeated in Columbus.
COWBOYS -1.5 at CHARGERS
I feel the Cowboys found their groove, big win for Big D.
PATRIOTS +2 at FALCONS
The Falcons D is bad. You want to think that this is the Patriots first true test, but Atlanta's D is worse than the bad units they've already faced. However, DOME, SWEET DOME, BABY!
DOLPHINS +6.5 at SAINTS
"THE DOLPHINS ARE 3-0, LETS ALL TALK ABOUT HOW UNDERVALUED RYAN TANNEHILL IS" - ESPN, FOX Sports, etc.
This is Tannehill's first test; can he go score-for-score against the best to do it? In the SuperDome? Against a revamped D that is looking far from the worst-ever from last year? These are all rhetorical.
