For the second straight week, this is a less than stellar NFL lineup. That is a little surprising to me after the books took a big hit on that infamous Sunday that probably left about 4 teams incredibly overrated.
As always, the lines are from ESPN’s pigskin pick’em.
Washington +10.5 v. Atlanta
I’m pretty sure it has been 2 solid weeks since anything positive was said about the Redskins. That’s fine, their offense is terrible, but they do have a legitimately good defense and out-gained the Eagles their last time out. I guess Atlanta hanging with New Orleans on Monday Football convinced the public Atlanta is better than they are.
Tampa Bay +10.5 v. Green Bay
Tampa Bay is awful and everyone knows it. Makes this easy enough.
I’m not gonna lie, the rest of this card is flat out awful. So, here are the rest of the picks broken down into three categories:
Houston +9.5 v. Indianapolis
Carolina +14.5 v. New Orleans
Dallas +3.5 v. Philadelphia
Denver +3.5 v. Pittsburgh
Baltimore -2.5 @ Cincy
New England -10.5 v. Miami
Kansas City +6.5 @ Jacksonville
Seattle -10.5 v. Detroit
New York Giants -4.5 v. San Diego
Tennessee +4.5 @ San Francisco
Chicago -3.5 v. Arizona
If you want to discuss one of those games I breezed by, feel free to call me out in the comments, but I don’t see how any of those games are playable or worth discussing at the moment.
