So many games to choose from, none of which I love.
Washington -4.5: Washington is cleaning some house. They seem to have an idea of where they want to be as a team and they are either winning games they shouldn’t, leading teams that they otherwise shouldn’t (even though they lost). The Rams are improved, but they won’t be able to cover the 4.5 points.
Loser: WTF Skins. WTF?
Detroit + 11.5: Minnesota has been in an equally mediocre funk as the Cowboys, but they aren’t willing to lay blame at the feet of Favre as much as they are willing to do so towards Tony Romo. There are questions whether Favre’s heart is in the game or whether he is simply going through the motions. Either way, he looks his age and it is difficult to watch.
Loser: The Vikings lone victory, let’s hope it stays that way until week 7.
Kansas City +2.5: KC at home is a rough draw for San Francisco. San Fran will still be licking their self-inflicted wounds from Monday night. They are playing on short rest, and KC is the team I should have picked to play well rather than the Raiders.
Winner: Who’s up for some chicken dinner.
Cincinnati -3: Am I missing something? Palmer out for this game? Carolina is moving away from Matt Moore, which is a surprise to me, but they aren’t replacing him with a 10 year veteran. Maybe the Panthers will run more to take pressure off the passing game, but I don’t see Cincy struggling in this game.
Winner: I don’t like chicken cacciatore, but I do enjoy a nice chicken cordon blue.
Pittsburgh -2.5: I hate Pittsburgh. I especially hate how I have to respect them as an organization. They play well despite losing their QB’s. They play well historically, they play well even though they had one of the toughest schedules in the league (2 years ago), and they simply play smart (mostly penalty free) football. It pains me to respect their style of play more than I respect the Cowboys. Charlie Batch will get the start, and the Steelers will most likely win unless Batch has 4 turnovers. Even then the game will be close.
Winner. Damn you Pittsburgh!
There are zero games that I would stay away from, though the Cincy line does sound like a trap.
