Arizona @ St Louis (-2.5)
It’s not the most exciting match-up but these two sub-par teams are division mates, so they have to face off twice per year regardless of how little impact their games may have. The Rammies are the home team for this one. They are favored by just less than a field goal.
Colin’s pick: St Louis -2.5
Buffalo @ NY Jets (-9.5)
The New York Jets are reeling. What better than to host the ailing Buffalo Bills without their star running back, Fred Jackson, who the Bills put on I.R. this week? It lines up well for New York, here. Speaking of lines, the J-E-T-S are favored by 9.5!
Colin’s pick: Buffalo +9.5Reidy's pick: NY Jets -9.5Cleveland @ Cincinnati (-7)
When the two Ohio teams get together anything can happen. That’s because they almost always both suck. This year it’s a little different. The Bengals are playoff contenders but the Browns are still the Browns.
Colin’s pick: Cincinnati -7Reidy's pick: Cincy -7Jacksonville VS Houston (-6.5)Reidy's pick: Houston -6.5
The line on this game would be a whole lot bigger if the Texans hadn’t lost their starting QB. Of course, a guy like Arian Foster can certainly take the heat off your backup - even if your backup is Matt Leinart.
Colin’s pick: Houston -6.5
Indianapolis VS Carolina (-3)
Cam Cameron and the Carolina Panthers enter the house that Peyton built with post-season implications most definitely NOT on the line as they face the winless Colts. Giddyup.
Colin’s pick: Carolina -3Reidy's pick: Carolina -3Tampa Bay @ Tennessee (-3)
This game is intriguing if only for the fact that it’s impossible to say what might go down. The Titans and the Bucs don’t exactly see a whole lot of one another and, besides, they are both unpredictable. Anyone care to guess Chris Johnson’s stat line?Colin's pick: Tennessee -3
Reidy's pick: Tampa Bay +3
Minnesota @ Atlanta (-9.5)
The Falcons should bench Matt Ryan this week. Quarterbacks named Matt keep getting hurt.
Colin’s pick: Minnesota +9.5Reidy's pick: Atlanta -9.5Chicago @ Oakland (-4)
The Caleb Haney era begins as the Chicago Bears roar into Oaktown looking to kick a little Raider ass. Can we get a “Goooooooo BEARS”, Broncos fans?
Reidy's pick: Oakland -4
Washington @ Seattle (-3.5)
Mike Shanahan might not have been a genius, you guys. And, if he was, he sure isn’t one now. The Redskins are doomed. Seattle, meanwhile, is a decent team with a MONSTER of a home-field advantage. Those people are all over caffeinated.
Colin’s pick: Seattle -3.5
Reidy's pick: Seattle -3.5
Philadelphia VS New England (-3.5)
The deg-whisperer probably isn’t going to play for the Eagles so Vince Young will get another start, assuming he doesn’t go on a xanex bender. The Pats are the Pats. They are good.
Colin’s pick: New England -3.5
Reidy's pick: New England -3.5
Denver @ San Diego (-6)
This is it, you guys. The Chargers are on the ropes. One or two more blows and they will be knocked out. The Broncos can deliver a haymaker my coming into their place and stealing one. Phil Rivers has been shaky but we wouldn’t put it past him to wake up a World-beater on Sunday morning.
Colin’s pick: Denver +6
Reidy's pick: Denver +6
Kansas City VS Pittsburgh (-10.5)
Kyle Orton, the newest Chief, will not play on this one. Todd Haley doesn’t want to throw the Steelers at him while he’s still getting his sea legs. That means the Amazing Tyler Palko will wow the Arrowhead faithful once more. Good luck next year, Chiefs.
Colin’s pick: Kansas City +10.5
Reidy's pick: Pitt -10.5
NY Giants @ New Orleans (-7)
ESPN finally got themselves a hum-dinger of a Monday Night match up. This one’s got it all including real playoff implications. To miss this one would be like playing golf with Hank Williams Jr.
Colin’s pick: NY Giants +7
Reidy's pick: New Orleans -7
