Some tough games this week. But then again, there are a couple that look like gimmes. Like Denver, who will now, and forever, roll the Raiders. And the Jets, who play divisional game tight. And Green Bay, which just strikes my gut as the right way to go in that game; something about it being Favre’s last big one, goes the little voice in my head. But considering how poorly I’ve been prognosticating these past two weeks, I’m thinking about going with Indy as the really easy pick. But the easy road’s not gonna dig me out of a sub-500 quagmire. That’s why I’m gonna call Miami minus one as the pick of the week; like last year, they’re gonna find their stride late – and they found it last week, methinks.

The over/under’s a little harder to hone in on this week, though. A lot of games that really seem as if they could go any which way but mine. I mean, can Cleveland put up more than six points and help that nudge over? (Probably not.) Same goes for Oakland, because you have to figure Denver’s going to put up at least 28 on their own, the way they’ve been playing. Too scary to depend on the Raiders though. So, I’m going to go with San Diego/Cincy being a high-scoring shootout that shoots over the 47.5. Risky, yes. But it feels oh-so-right.

Go Birds.
