Will this be 3rd week lucky following on from being 7-7 and 8-5 in the previous two. The games look a little easier to predict this week but then again. Anyway here goes:
Houston at Buffalo
Both teams are coming into this in good form with back to back wins for both. This is a hard one to call but I think Buffalo may just have the edge at home. The Bills by 7 or less.
Cleveland at Chicago
This should give the Bears a chance to redeem themselves following on from last weeks disapointing performance. If they dont win this their season is as good as over and I expect them to bounce back with a 14 point win.
Seattle at Dallas
On last weeks performance Dallas will be far too good for the Seahawks who need to get their squad fit. The Bye week might have given Hasselbeck’s ribs a chance to heal but I doubt even if fully fit they could win this one. The Cowboys should win by 10-14 points
St. Louis at Detroit
Last years 0-16 team takes on what could be this years 0-16 team. Not easy to call but I will give the edge to the Lions at home. Detroit by 7 points
Denver at Baltimore
Who would have marked this down as a make or break game for the Ravens ? However with Denver so far sweeping all before them and the Ravens on a 3 game losing streak (all games they could and possibly should have won) falling to 3-4 will probably mean the best they could hope for would be a wild card. Given this and the fact the Ravens are due some luck I take them to edge this one by 7 points or less and so end Denvers excellent if unexpected start to the season.
San Francisco at Indianapolis
Might not be as easy as it looks by the Colts will win this one by 7-10 points.
Miami at NY Jets
Tough one with Miami playing really well last week and the Jets coming off of an easy win against a totally unpredictable Oakland team. Its the Jets for me by 7 points +
NY Giants at Philadelphia
Another big game which could go either way. I will give the Eagles the edge and expect a narrow win by 7 points or less.
Jacksonville at Tennessee
Can the Titans finally get a win? Well if they are it will probably come here. I am just going to give them the edge by 7 points or less.
Oakland at San Diego
Oakland were awful last week and they will find it no easier this week. However I dont expect such a turgid performance this time and go for the Chargers by 7-10 points.
Carolina at Arizona
The Cardinals should be too good for the unpredictable Panthers and I expect them to win by 7 points.
Minnesota at Green Bay
Much as this pains me I cant see the Packers line protecting Rodgers so go with a vikings win by 10 points or less.
Atlanta at New Orleans
Should be plenty of points but there is only one winner for me the Saints by 14 points + on their way to the Division title.
Byes Cincinnati, Kansas City, New England, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay, Washington
