I am the Jeff Fisher of picking games against the spread. Last week I was 9-7, bringing me to 25-22-1 on the season.

This week's picks after the jump.

Philadelphia -3 @ Buffalo

This has to be the week the Eagles finally get it, right?

New Orleans -7 @ Carolina

Gregg Williams gets a rookie quarterback for the second straight week.  Blaine Gabbert only threw for 196 last week.

Oakland @ Houston -6

The Texans are playing really well so far this season.  This one will be a little bit tougher with out Andre Johnson, but they are still the better team playing at home.

Kansas City +3 @ Indianapolis

What a bad game.  We probably should cheer for the Colts in this one.  They need to get a couple of wins so they don't have a shot at Andrew Luck.

Cincinnati +3 @ Jacksonville

The rookie QB Bowl.  The Bengals are pretty good against the run.  That probably gives them the edge in this one.

Arizona @ Minnesota -3

I really have no way to go in this one.  I am going with the Vikings because they have Adrian Peterson.

Seattle @ New York Giants -10

This game is actually the only one I feel really good about in the survivor league this week.  Ten points is a lot, but the Seahawks aren't good and are traveling across the country.

Tennessee + 3 1/2 @ Pittsburgh

This line moved a lot during the week.  It opened around 6 at most places, and some placed even had it as high as 8.  That means a lot of people have put money on the Titans.  I have gone back and forth all week, but I think if the Titans do lose it will be by 3 or less.

Tampa Bay +3 @ San Francisco

It is time for Josh Freeman to return to his 2010 form.

San Diego -4 @ Denver

I really need Philip Rivers to have a big game here in 2 of my 4 leagues.  He should be able too because Denver is bad against the pass.

New York Jets +8 @ New England

I think this is the week the Jets rebound, but it would be pretty awesome to see the Patriots hang 40 on them.

Green Bay -6 @ Atlanta

This is actually a really big game for the Falcons, but they just don't have enough to hang with the Packers.

Chicago @ Detroit -6

The Lions 5-0?  The Lions 5-0!
