    That's a lot of draft picks for a migraine.

    Your own squad has gotten up close and personal with tomato cans all season long.

    The whole league is tomato cans according to Shaughnessy. The Patriots according to Shank are the least tomato can but still a tomato can.
    Not many complete teams.
    Beyond John Harbaugh there isn't a current coach in the AFC in Belichick's league.
    Reid will screw up the clock
    Tomlin will do Tomlin things
    O'Brien will lose it.

    Philly has the worst WR core in the NFL. They need weapons beyond Sproles.

    BOB's worst nightmare is another W.

    because then both him and Osweiler will be stuck in Houston.

    Sproles retires after next year. Philly's WR's are hideous but I'm not interested in having OBJ on my team. Great player but I can live without the drama.

    Barring Goodell suspending Brady, Belichick and Garapolio the Texans aren't winning this game.
    Next week they have a real opponent.
    However going 14-2 earns you a tomato can.

    The G-men had no running game to keep Rodgers off the field with. Once Eli's receivers let him down with all those drops it was inevitable Rodgers would get going. They simply gave him to many chances to make a play.

    I am hopeful that we will run the ball like we have all season and limit his opportunities.

    My picks:

    ATL - Seattle D isn't all that without Thomas among others, ATL offense too explosive. Seattle's only chance is matching points. I don't see it

    PATS - Blowout

    KC - Reid is unbeatable off a bye. While Pitt clearly has the talent edge on O, I think Kelce is actually the biggest mismatch in the game and will have huge game

    DALLAS - Only way to beat Dallas will be to get pressure on Dak and force him into mistakes, GB doesn't have that this year with Matthews at like 50%. ATL has that with Beasley which is why I'm picking ATL to beat them next week.

    I actually agree with every one of those picks though I'd be hesitant to lay the 16+. I think ATL runs SEA right out of the building.

    NE-Houston game boils down to turnovers. To cover Houston needs NE turnovers.
    NE beat Houston week 3 27-0 with Jacoby Brissett at QB.
    I can't see Houston scoring more than 17 points.
    I can see NE scoring anywhere from 21 to 35.

    16+ is a lot of points in an NFL game. A backdoor cover could easily happen.

    I bet 50% of gamblers agree with you or the line will move. ;)

    Good call.

    I think alsacs would lay 37 if you forced him to bet on the game.

    Wow, San Diego's a huge city I'm surprised they couldn't support a football team.

    I would lay 21.5 and feel good.
    No more though.
    I think the Pats win 31-7.

    I could see Bill calling off the dogs at some point and saving something for next week, I could see something like 27-10.
