I feel the mediocre results already.
5. Houston Texans (+10 1/2) vs. San Diego Chargers
Chances are the Chargers are very distracted this week with the massive fire which has engulfed much of the community. Additionally this game could end up being played in the state of Texas. Maybe it's not quite the most heartfelt pick ever made, but it's about winning imaginary money.
4. Detroit Lions (+5 1/2) at Chicago Bears
Remember a couple of weeks back when the Lions scored 34 friggin points on the Bears in the 4th quarter? Um 5 1/2 points? The Bears aren't a very good team, and apparently it's taking people way too long to realize this fact.
3. Jacksonville Jaguars (+4 1/2) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Anytime the Bucs are giving the opponent more than a field goal I will contemplate taking the opposition. When they are giving 4 1/2 points to a 4-2 team from the AFC it's pretty much a no brainer. There is no way the Bucs go out and win by more than a FG.
2. New York Jets (-2 1/2) vs. Buffalo Bills
Call this the cruelty to myself for being a Jet fan pick. The Jets are in every game and have become the kings of the choke. But come on the Bills absolutely suck. They have no offense, they're defense is overrated, they're just not good. The Jets can't lose to them twice this season right? Right?
1. Indianapolis Colts (-7 1/2) at Carolina Panthers
The Panthers are either starting David Carr or Vinny Testaverde against the second best team in the NFL. I understand the home game thing, and the fact that Peyton has never beaten the Panthers before, but who the hell cares the Colts are going to pound the Panthers on sunday.
Survivor League Pick: Death to Norv Chargers
I still hate the Chargers, but I'm back to picking teams this week. So I'm going with the Titans over the Raiders, and honestly I have no idea if Vince Young is playing or not.
