Chances of me following up a 12-4 performance with another dominant performance is piss poor.
5. Buffalo Bills (-6 1/2) at San Francisco 49ers
I've called the Bills overrated on about 400 occasions this year but at home against the niners who have to fly cross country and play in likely miserable weather. The Bills will win this game by a touchdown or more.
4. New Orleans Saints (+4 1/2) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Saints are back to being an offensive machine now that Pierre Thomas is getting the bulk of the carries. This game will be a close one but I'll take the Saints plus 4.
3. New York Giants (-3 1/2) at Washington Redskins
The Giants are probably due for a let down at some point but they thoroughly dominated the Redskins in week 1. Additionally the Redskins have been play eh-football the past few weeks and could have easily lost last week to Seattle. With Jacobs back the Giants once again beat down inside the division.
2. Tennessee Titans (-11 1/2) at Detroit Lions
The Lions are a mess without Orlovsky. Ha. Really they are a mess because they can't stop the run. The Titans are going to rush for 250 yards on Turkey Day.
1. Indianapolis Colts (-4 1/2) vs. Cleveland Browns
The Browns are in disarray and the Colts are on a massive hot streak. Would I like to see the Colts stumble and fall out of the playoff run? Absolutely. Do I think there's really any chance of that happening this weekend? Absolutely not.
Survivor League Pick: SCREW Seattle
Titans to bounce back over the Lions.
