Where picking the Lions with the points continues to happen for no apparent reason.
5. Detroit Lions (+13 1/2) at Minnesota Vikings
Ok the Vikings offense isn't good and their defense isn't superb. The Lions absolutely blow but 2 touchdowns is too much right? [This is a stupid pick don't listen to it]
4. Miami Dolphins (+3 1/2) at Houston Texans
I don't really see how this game is anything less than a 50/50 propostion on the winner. The Dolphins are coming off two victories over the Chargers and Pats while the Texans are winless. Granted the Texans should have won last week, but they didn't. The Dolphins are getting underrated thanks to last year. They will win this game.
3. New Orleans Saints (-7 1/2) vs. Oakland Raiders
The Saints blow more winnable football games than any team in the league right now, but that won't be the case against the Raiders. The Raiders are a mess, they have a new coach, they are traveling to New Orleans and they will get pummeled.
2. New England Patriots (+6 1/2) at San Diego Chargers
Giving 6 1/2 to the Patriots? Hmm I'll take that any day of the week any location any opponent. The Chargers are a 2-3 football team, they aren't as good as they were last year and they just, like the Pats, lost to the Dolphins.
1. New York Giants (-7 1/2) at Cleveland Browns
Cleveland is a mess and the Giants have been very solid this entire season. I'd be much more comfortable if the spread was 6 1/2 but regardless I'll take Eli and the boys to win by 10.
Survivor League Pick: SCREW Seattle
Go with the stupid Saints who will avoid choking away the win unlike monday night.
