My Picks (home teams ALL CAPS)
New Orleans Saints (-9.5) over WASHINGTON REDSKINS (BS: WAS)
NEW YORK GIANTS (+2.5) over Dallas Cowboys (BS: DAL)
San Diego Chargers (-13.5) over CLEVELAND BROWNS (BS: SD)
ARIZONA CARDINALS (-3.0) over Minnesota Vikings (BS: MIN)
Baltimore Ravens (-3.0) over GREEN BAY PACKERS (BS: GB)
New Orleans ought to roll against Skins, though they may suffer from a big game hangover and have a bit trouble to start. They'll still cover the spread, though.
The Giants aren't as bad as they've looked, and Dallas will do their usual December swoon, so no worries for the Jersey Boys.
Why the hell is the Chargers game the one game that CBS is showing in LA? Seriously, dudes, there's a fun looking Titans at Colts game that we should be watching instead of this crap. Worst team in the league, versus one of the top five teams, results should be predictable, and ugly.
Arizona are hard to figure out, but I still have trouble believing that the Old Man's arm isn't about to fall off any moment, or that he'll start throwing INT after INT like he's supposed to. Leinart should play well again, and as long as Vince Young isn't the other QB, the Cardinals ought to hold on to the lead at the end.
Monday night you've got a QB who loves to hold the ball too long against the Ravens defense. Wouldn't be surprised if Rodgers doesn't make it through the night. Ravens will roll.
