    Predictions:

    Falcons (+1½) at Bucs
    Tampa Bay's run defense is still a work in progress; I expect a big day from Michael Turner. That will open up play action passes to Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez.
    5 units

    Pats at Bills (over 54)
    This game could have that many points on the scoreboard by half time.
    5 units

    Raiders (+3½) over Jets
    First off don't discount the effect of coast-to-coast travel. Shonn Greene looks indecisive and Nick Mangold is out. That forces the Jets to throw the ball; I like Oakland to not only cover but to win straight up.
    4 units

    Pats at Bills (+7½)
    Considering all the injuries on both sides of the ball I'm very tempted to predict the Bills win this one straight up; at minimum I expect them to cover.
    4 units

    Broncos (+7) at Titans
    I'm not sold on Hasselbeck and see last week's win over the Ravens as an anomaly; Tennessee comes back to earth today.
    2 units

    Giants at Eagles (-8½)
    The Gints have no receivers, and they have nobody in their secondary that can cover the Iggles receivers. How many picks do you figure Eli throws, about three?
    1 unit

    Lions (-3) at Vikings
    We're now seeing why two teams gave up on McNabb. With no passing game to fear Detroit can focus on taking away Adrian Peterson, which is Minnesota's only hope.
    1 unit

    Dolphins (-1½) over Browns
    After facing the Chargers and Pats Miami's defense gets a break going against Cleveland; now word is that Peyton Hillis is out.
    1 unit

    Steelers (-10½) at Colts
    Normally there would be no way that I would go with double-digit favorite on the road, but I'm going against the Colts until they show a reason to not do that
    1 unit

    Chiefs at Chargers (-14½)
    Even though SD is without Antonio Gates, and even though this is a ridiculously huge line in a division game, Kansas City is so bad I've got to go against all logic and against the Chiefs
    1 unit


    The rest:
    Miami-Cleveland under 42½
    Texans +3½; New Orleans-Houston over 51
    Giants-Eagles under 47
    Lions-Vikings over 44½
    Broncos-Titans over 43½
    Jaguars +3½; Jags-Panthers over 42½
    Bengals -2½; SF-Cincy over 38½
    Chiefs-Chargers under 44½
    Jets-Raiders over 40½
    Ravens -5½; Ravens-Rams under 42
    Falcons-Bucs over 44½
    Cardinals -3; Arizona-Seattle under 43
    Bears +4½; Green Bay-Chicago over 45½
    Steelers-Colts over 39½
    Redskins +4½; Washington-Dallas under 46½

    Not getting Pats where I am. :(

    Texans @ Saints . . . HOU has 3-and-14 inside their own 10 . . . when Andre Johnson just barely picks up a first running over Malcolm Jenkins. And now HOU is in the red zone.

    Saints now leading 17-16.

    As they say, it's hard to beat TDs with FGs.

    Eagles look awful in the redzone. Have to settle for a field goal to go up 16-14.

    Raiders tied up with jets at halftime. If oakland can pull this out, it won't be all bad today.

    The Raiders look good on D. Fast to the ball, good pressure and they rap up.

    Should we be worrying more about the Bills than the Jets, or too early?

    Sanchez is turrrrrible

    Their defense concerns me. But I think that they can go on vacation next week when our so called Defense comes to town.

    Raiders on the 1. Could go up by 14. A jets loss will make up for the Pats loss a little.

    Meriweather with a nice play in the CHI-GB game. I forgot what a safety looked like.
