W-L-T record: 2-1
Season record: 49-41
A half-point from 3-0. Damn you Texans! Anyway, here's the weekend picks for the week:
Oakland Raiders (+8 1/2) over Cincinnati Bengals
The Raiders have been blown away two weeks in a row, which is why the point spread is so high. But I'm betting on them at least losing close.
Pittsburgh Steelers (-1 1/2) over Cleveland Browns
The Steeler were starting an injured backup last week against the Baltimore Ravens and still were within a field goal. This week, starting Charlie Batch (who is a highly underrated backup QB) instead of Byron Leftwich they should find it easier against the lowly Browns.
Denver Broncos (-10 1/2) over Kansas City Chiefs
I've been feasting of big dog bets lately. But have you seen Peyton Manning lately? He should shred the Chiefs.
Atlanta Falcons (Even) over Tampa Bay Buccaneers
I've been insisting I still like the Falcons, just haven't liked the point spreads they've faced. Finally a low spread: I'll take 'em, even if the Bucs are a highly competitive team.
Seattle Seahawks (-3) over Miami Dolphins
Miami isn't a good home team and they're reeling, while the Seahawks are looking tough.
New Orleans Saints (+2 1/2) over San Francisco 49ers
I'm not sold on Colin Kaepernick at all. Maybe eventually, but not this season. Sure, he looked good against the Bears, but I don't expect him to perform well in a duel against Drew Brees.
Green Bay Packers (+2 1/2) over New York Giants
Giving Aaron Rodgers and the Packers points against the struggling Giants and Eli Manning heavily underestimates the talents of Green Bay.
