There are a couple of big games in the AFC South this weekend. The Saints opened as a 5.5 point favorite but have come down to just 3.5 point favorites at some spots. That should make us feel better, right?
The other big game this weekend is the Texans and Bengals. Cincinnati is a 3 point favorite at home. We need to root for Houston to win this game because our only playoff hopes at this point are in the wild card race. I think the Bengals will win, but I also didn't think there was any shot the Texans would beat the Falcons last week.
The Colts are 17 point underdogs in Baltimore. I will say it again, this collapse by Indianapolis would be so much more fun if they weren't going to get Andrew Luck and a new coach out of it.
The Jaguars are a 1 point underdog at home against the Buccaneers. That is a game that is sure to captivate the nation. It will be interesting for me though because I need Maurice Jones-Drew to have a career day so I can win my first round fantasy football playoff game.
