Such sweet mediocrity

Move along; nothing to brag about here folks. Sure, both of my projected locks came through - Tampa/Baltimore under 34 (27) and New Orleans getting three (they won 19-14) - and I was a mere point off picking the Eagles score dead on.
But, even missing a couple games on the chart, my overall records blew.

Picking games: 5-7
Picking o/u: 6-6
Hickey locks: 2-0
Before MNF: 11-13

And were these selections not for amusement purposes only, I'd be the poster boy for why Monday Night football exists; just close enough to breaking even to try to make up for all of Sunday's damage today.
So anyway, got a double MNF slate tonight. Which is cool. And, I'm a'likin the home teams: Washington giving visiting Minnesota 4.5 (an odd number, yes, but Minnesota smells like one of those 0-6 out-of-the-gate types) and Oakland getting a field goal at home (how you gonna go and tell me Phillip Rivers is any good when Phillip Rivers has barely played?).

With the early game, I figure the Vikes won't put many points up and since Washington is no juggernaut, it'll stay under 35.5.

Just the opposite'll hold true in the late game; SD and Oakland will both put some points up, pushing the game over 43.
