SD 33 @ DEN 45: The Broncos don’t even care to play defense anymore. Peyton Manning has to score too many points – all too often – just to make sure his team gets a w.
WSH 27 @ ATL 28: Kirk Cousins versus the Falcons defense; are the birds really this bad?
CHI 27 @ CLE 20: Josh Gordon has been on a historic run (36 receptions, 774 yards with five touchdowns) over the last four weeks but the Browns are 0-4 in those contests. What does it mean? He’s been as impressive as Calvin Johnson but – like Megatron last year when he took the single-season yardage record of 1,964 – the victories are few.
HOU 17 @ IND 24: Only because I cannot take the Texans…at all.
NE 27 @ MIA 26: Tom Brady gets the final possession.
PHI 23 @ MIN 21: I’m taking the Eagles but I have a feeling they gag this up on the road.
SEA 24 @ NYG 20: I guess the Giants aren’t going to win the Super Bowl; the Seahawks just might.
SF 24 @ TB 17: 49ers.
BUF 14 @ JAC 24: I’ll stop picking against the Jaguars, maybe.
KC 24 @ OAK 17: Chiefs.
NYJ 10 @ CAR 34: The Panthers receive a gift from the schedule makers after getting a taste of what the Saints served up.
GB 21 @ DAL 24: This is a “must” game for the hosts and I’ll take the Cowboys defense to do enough against the Packers.
ARI 27 @ TEN 17: I sure hope the Cardinals don’t overlook a Titans squad that will play harder than their record would indicate.
NO 30 @ STL 21: It’s not their dome but it’s climate controlled and not in Seattle so I like the Saints.
CIN 21 @ PIT 24: The Bengals can quiet a lot of doubts by getting this road win…they don’t.
BAL 27 @ DET 23: Can anyone trust the Lions right now?
Last week: 9-7
