Last week I was 8-7-1 (Dallas game a push) in my picks against the spread. Click through the jump to see my picks for this week.

My pick against the spread is in bold.

New England -7 1/2 @ Buffalo 

The Bills are a nice story to this point in the season, but there is no way they can hang with Tom Brady and that offense.

Jacksonville @ Carolina -3 1/2

I really don't have any idea what to think of these two teams, but I do know that Cam Newton has been racking up the passing yards.  He will continue to do so against a weak Jaguars secondary.

San Francisco +3 @ Cincinnati 

Again, two teams that aren't very good, but I think the 49ers are a little bit better.

Miami @ Cleveland -3

I am just glad I don't have to watch this one.

Detroit - 3 1/2 @ Minnesota

The Vikings are really bad, and Jim Schwartz has the Lions on an early season roll.

Houston @ New Orleans -4

I am very excited that the Titans will be tied for the division lead after the Saints put it on the Texans tomorrow.

New York Giants +9 @ Philadelphia

I don't think the Giants will win this game, but 9 points is too many.

Denver @ Tennessee -7

CODE BLUE BABY!!!11

New York Jets @ Oakland +3

This is my upset special of the week.  The Raiders win this one outright.

Kansas City @ San Diego -15

Life without Jamaal Charles is going to be tough for the Chiefs.

Baltimore -5 @ St. Louis

The Ravens will get back on track after the beatdown they took here last week.

Green Bay -4 @ Chicago

Jay Cutler will throw a pick 6 late to put this one out of hand.

Arizona -3 1/2 @ Seattle

The Seahawks might not win a game this year.

Atlanta +1 @ Tampa Bay

The Bucs are a good young team, but the Falcons are a better young team.

Pittsburgh -11 @ Indianapolis

This is going to be the ugliest Sunday Night Football game of the season.

Washington + 4 1/2 @ Dallas

Dallas has a lot of injuries, and Washington has been surprisingly good so far.
