At 114-94, I'm ranked 113 of 1,000 in my PoolTracker.com pick 'em league. If my first pick of the week (Jags) is any indication, I will probably fall in the standings.
That's "picks against the spread," but it could also mean the New England kind. The white.
Let's not waste any time:
Jags (+11.5) over FALCONS
I'm embarrassed, but I swear that I thought the Falcons were going to win ... just not by double digits.
Cowboys (-5.5) over BUCS
Saved some face with this one ... Thanks, 1st half Tony Romo.
BILLS (+1.5) over Dolphins
With The Man taking a day off with Tim Tebow, he'll be able to allow Stevie Johnson to catch some big passes.
Seahawks (+4.5) over BEARS
The Seahawks actually terrify me. If there is one team that I'm nervous about making the playoffs over the Lions, it's Peter Christmas Carroll's team winning forever.
Titans (-6.5) over COLTS
I ALMOST wanted to pick the Colts to WIN, but 0-16 a year after Peyton sounds way juicier.
Packers (-13.5) over CHIEFS
Bengals (-6.5) over RAMS
VIKINGS (+6.5) over Saints
Adrian Peterson is playing for his fantasy owners. Hopefully, he's playing for a win, too.
GIANTS (-7.5) over Redskins
Panthers (+6.5) over TEXANS
The AFC South champs hang over.
Lions (+0.5) over RAIDERS
EAGLES (-2.5) over Jets
I talked about Rex Ryan's seat getting hot a couple weeks ago ... I meant this week.
CARDINALS (-6.5) over Browns
I'm also nervous of the Cardinals winning out and making Week 17 vs. Seahawks a playoff game (if the Lions don't win two).
Patriots (-5.5) over BRONCOS
Also, Jesus is inactive.
CHARGERS (+1.5) over Ravens
This is somewhat of a nightmare (along with the picture above). If the Chargers win, the Christmas Eve game against the Lions is going to bring back memories of 2000.
Steelers (+2.5) over 49ERS
This is assuming Big Ben plays.
