Big storm in its early stages outside. Church has been canceled, so I can sleep in a little bit, but I will need to get up early enough to move the snow before it turns to ice. Once I get the snow blowing done it will be a great day for watching football. Great day for the pick 'em? We'll see.

In the dome, a screaming crowd behind you, and a young quarterback on the other side is a good combination to have. Add a veteran like Brees, and things don't look good for the Rams. New Orleans by 10 LOCK

Chiefs can run the ball, Mahomes can throw the ball, and Chiefs defense has been performing much better lately. It should be a blowout, at least on paper. On the other side you have a Patriots running game that moved at will against Chargers. This allowed Brady to pick out a receiver and almost be guaranteed a completion. Patriots defense has been vulnerable to the run, but the defensive backs are skilled. Chiefs seem to be nearly consensus pick. Who am I to argue? New England by 6 LOCK

Brady has a day for the ages..

Michel runs wild and makes it easy for Brady

Hill (KC) gets yards but not TDs.

New England breaks the scoreboard.

Hightower (NE) introduces himself rather violently to Mahomes.

Kick the damned ball and let's play.
