I like the Vikings, Giants and Falcons as upsets this week, though Vegas flipped from Atlanta to Philly as favorite and it's still only a 1.5-point spread. I'm going sharply against Yahoo consensus by picking the Vikings and Bengals.

The most exciting game looks to be Saints at Rams. I can't believe New Orleans comes into this game 1-0, when all Houston had to do was play the receivers at the line! Brees was never going to throw a hail mary needing seven yards for field goal range and just enough time to call timeout for the kicker.

Better get this one in quick because we're on vacation in the Maritimes. We're in PE Island right now and heading to Nova Scotia this afternoon. The storm has really raised hell in this end of Canada. PEI is a mess, and the B&B we are staying at was running on generator until yesterday afternoon. We'll see how Nova Scotia fared tonight. This storm is a heavy blow to the economy, since much of the Maritimes depends on tourism.

Buccaneers and Panthers is hard to call. Neither looked good in week 1,so which one will wake up first. Carolina by 9.

I'll post the rest later.

rcade, don't worry about what Yahoo says. No harm in picking the Bengals.

In Game 1, Andy Dalton looked like he had been microchipped by the same lab that did the implants on Colonel Steve Austin. Dude was playing out of his mind. I think the new coach has successfully de-Marvinized him.

Now to finish the job. Looks like the Nova Scotia south coast didn't fare too badly from the hurricane. We'll take a better look at Halifax tomorrow. In the meantime, here are the rest of the picks.

This is for the birds, red or black. Take your pick. Baltimore by 13 LOCK
Chargers ride to the Motor City. Los Angeles (American Conference) by 6
It is somehow indecent to play this game at any time other than in December. Green Bay by 3
Titans' defense has schooled one young QB. Now for another. Tennessee by 13 LOCK
Tom Brady often plays badly in Miami. He could do so, and the Pats will still win easily. New England by 17 LOCK
Bills need the win for the NY State Championship. Buffalo by 9
Steelers paid for a lot of mistakes on defense last week. Seahawks won't make them pay as dearly. Pittsburgh by 6
Cowboys vs bad word for Native Americans. Cowboys still prevail. Dallas by 8
Houston is a bad place for cats, even large spotted ones. Houston by 10 LOCK
Despite a win last week, Raiders just aren't that good. Kansas City by 16 LOCK
Broncos' home edge isn't what it used to be. Chicago by 7
Saints won't find good Jambalaya in LA. They won't find a win either. Los Angeles (National Conference) by 3
