Tennessee beats Flacco-less Ravens. Titans by 9 (lock)

New Orleans has a defense now? Saints by 10 (lock)

L.A. plunders a desolate New York secondary. Rams by 10 (lock)

Philadelphia might just be a Super Bowl team. Eagles by 17 (lock)

I refuse to get off the Atlanta bandwagon, even if the players have. Falcons by 7

Still not used to Jacksonville being decent again. Jags by 6 (lock) It's been a good week for Houston. Texans by 20 (lock)

No one will watch this game. Cardinals by 3

Seattle is a bad football team, but so is everyone else. Hawks by 7 (lock)

Best game of the week. Chiefs win a squeaker by 4 (lock)

I had a pretty good week, but not good enough. Do you think I can use a second round draft choice to get the Sports Illiterate guy who tagged Houston to win the Series 2 years ago to help me with my picks?

We start with what once would have been considered the game to determine last place in the AFC East. No longer is it so; Buffalo has become real, or it's one heck of a mirage.

posted by Goyoucolts at 05:18 PM on November 02

Ummmm, yeah. Sorry Houston, but Indy by 3 and take the damn lock off! Watson was quickly becoming one of my favorite players in the league. Hope he can come back 100% next season.
