I really hope you didn't wager your mortgage on my picks last week. I went 5-11. That is a rough start to the season. Click through the jump for this week's picks...if you dare.
Bears @ Packers -5
The Bears looked better than I thought they would last week, and the Packers looked worse. Seems like a good reason to pick the Packers.
Chiefs +3 @ Bills
That high money Bills defense got torched by a Jets offense that couldn't score in the preseason. Hopefully Jamaal Charles has a big game here.
Saints -2.5 @ Panthers
I trusted Cam Newton last week, and he let me down. I hate him.
Browns +7 @ Bengals
I think the Bengals will win this game, but it will be on a late field goal, thus the Browns will stay within the number.
Vikings -1.5 @ Colts
The Vikings assault on the AFC South continues.
Houston @ Jacksonville +7.5
The Jags always play the Texans tough. Houston wins this one, but it will be tight.
Raiders -3 @ Dolphins
The Dolphins are terrible. So are the Raiders.
Arizona @ New England -14
The Patriots are the best team in the history of the world. There will not be a single week this season where they don't cover the number.
Buccaneers @ Giants -7
The Giants will win this one because it will be a disaster if they don't.
Ravens +3 @ Eagles
This is an interesting line to me. I think the Ravens are clearly the better team. Vegas does not agree. Vegas is usually right.
Dallas @ Seattle +3
The Seahawks burned me last week, but I didn't learn my lesson. The Cowboys tend to have a big let down after a big win.
Redskins -3 @ Rams
RGIII is the greatest EVA.
Jets @ Steelers -6
I hate both of these teams.
Titans +6 @ Chargers
I will not reveal my pick for this game until PFTC comes out tomorrow, but it will be a close one.
Lions +7 @ 49ers
Matthew Stafford has a nice bounce back game here.
Denver @ Atlanta -3
