Oakland at Miami: Miami has to have some home field advantage and enough defense to stop an improving Oakland team. Miami by 3.
Houston at Atlanta: Injuries are taking their toll on the Texans. If Harrington plays like he did last week Falcons could get their first win of the season. Texans D is too tough. Houston by 6.
Baltimore at Cleveland: Baltimore too much for the Browns even at the dog pound. Ravens by 10.
Chicago at Detroit: Good NFC North match-up that Bears must win. Detroit has a good offense but not much of a defense allowing 59 points to Philly last week. Bears by 3.
Green Bay at Minnesota: Packers keep thing rolling and Favre breaks Marino’s touchdown record. Green Bay by 10.
St. Louis at Dallas: Rams don’t have enough offensive weapons left in their arsenal. Dallas defense is greatly improved. High-scoring offense of Cowboys keeps it up. Dallas by 20.
NY Jets at Buffalo: For some reason the Jets struggle against the Bills but Pennington is playing too good for winless Buffalo. Jets by 7.
Carolina at Tampa Bay: Tampa Bay has been playing well the last two weeks and their defense has been tough while Carolina lost Jake Delhomme. Buccaneers by 3.
Seattle at San Francisco: Important NFC West game and the 49er’s are playing better. If Alex Smith can make some plays at home they could pull it out. Seahawks by 4.
Pittsburgh at Arizona: Arizona is tough against the run and has been getting more pressure on the quarterback. This is my upset pick of the week. Cardinals by 3.
San Diego at Kansas City: Chargers offense finally finds its groove from last year. Chiefs can’t seem to stop anyone. San Diego by 14.
Denver at Indianapolis: Denver is not as good offensively as they should be yet. Indy still has a good defense and home field. Indy by 10.
Philadelphia at NY Giants: Philly is feeling much better after last week and may wear their throw-back jerseys again. Eagles by 10.
New England at Cincinatti: Bengals simply don’t have the defense to stop the well-oiled machine that is the Patriots and Tom Brady. New England by 17.
