Cleveland 16
Baltimore 23
These teams really dislike each other, and it doesn't help that Cleveland is terrible. Ravens will crush them. Thur, Sept 27 8:20pm NFLN
New England 52
Buffalo 28
Pats have been struggling the past couple of weeks. The Bills are scoring TDs in bunches. I am picking an upset here, and taking Buffalo. Sun, Sept 30 1:00pm CBS
Tennessee 14
Houston 38
Despite the win against the Lions, the Titans are pretty bad. Houston is showing why they are a big time Super Bowl contender. Texans win this at home. Sun, Sept 30 1:00pm CBS
San Diego 37
Kansas City 20
Matt Cassel has so many weapons on that Chiefs team, but he can't take advantage of them. I'm taking the Chargers here. Sun, Sept 30 1:00pm CBS
Minnesota 20
Detroit 13
Don't look now, but the Vikings are for real. Christian Ponder is showing why the Vikings took him in the first round. With Matt Stafford possibly out this week, give me Minny. Sun, Sept 30 1:00pm Fox
Carolina 28
Atlanta 30
The Falcons are absolutely clicking on all cylinders. The Panthers don't impress me at all. I'm taking the Birds on the turf. Sun, Sept 30 1:00pm Fox
Seattle 13
St. Louis 19
Seattle is coming off of a week where they were handed a win from the refs, and the Rams were crushed by the Bears. The game is in STL, but I still think Seattle wins. It will be very low scoring. Sun, Sept 30 1:00pm Fox
San Francisco 34
New York 0
The loss of Darrell Revis is crushing for the Jets, but this week I think the 49ers will try to exploit the Jets LBs. I expect a big one out of Vernon Davis and a Niners win. Sun, Sept 30 1:00pm Fox
Miami 21
Arizona 24 (OT)
The Dolphins are pretty bad, and the Cardinals have the most underrated defense in the league. I'm taking Arizona. Sun, Sept 30 4:05pm CBS
Oakland 6
Denver 37
Classic AFC West rivalry. I guess I was wrong about the Raiders. Tough to write them off after beating Pittsburgh, but I am going with Denver here. Huge homefield advantage. Sun, Sept 30 4:05pm CBS
Cincinnati 27
Jacksonville 10
The Bengals have an explosive offense and they should be able to take care of the Jags with no problem. Sun, Sept 30 4:05pm CBS
New Orleans 27
Green Bay 28
Wow, who would have thought these teams would be where they are? Can the Saints really fall to 0-4? I am saying yes. Pack win at home. Sun, Sept 30 4:15pm Fox
Washington 24
Tampa Bay 22
The Bucs have some speedy LBs that might be able to handle RGIII. He was brought down to earth a little bit last week, but I am taking Washington. I don't trust Josh Freeman. Sun, Sept 30 4:15pm Fox
New York 17
Philadelphia 19
Another great rivalry game. It's simple. If the Giants can get to Vick, they will win. If Vick gets time, his receivers will torch the Giants secondary and the Eagles will win. Sun, Sept 30 8:20pm NBC
Chicago 34
Dallas 18
Are there bigger enigmas in the league than Tony Romo and Jay Cutler? Both with worlds of talent, and both just can't seem to get it together. This is the toughest pick of the week. I will take Cowboys because they are home. Mon, Oct 1 8:30pm ESPN
