Only one upset came through for me last week: Atlanta topped Philadelphia. I'm picking the Falcons again as an underdog going into Indy to play the Luck-less Colts, but I don't see how Vegas is favoring Indianapolis. I've picked Atlanta as an upset winner all three weeks.

I also have the Cardinals as an underdog victor over the Panthers. I want to pick the Browns in a home upset over the Rams but can't commit. On Yahoo there's not much temptation to go against Los Angeles -- it's currently 90%/10%.

The game I'd most like to see is Kansas City hosting Baltimore.

The less said about my Cincinnati pick last week the better.

Kudos to Tommytrump for being the only player to get the New England line close enough for extra points in a 43-point massacre.

rcade: I believe you made a mistake and gave me 5 points I didn't deserve.
Last weeks pick third from the bottom you have me picking New England by 3 and gave me 5 points, that was actually New Orleans by 3 and New Orleans lost. You already correctly credited me 10 points for my New England lock victory the sixth game from the top.

We're still in Nova Scotia, having arrived from Annapolis Royal this afternoon in the town where my father was born and raised, Westport, Nova Scotia. This is a tiny place on a very small island that is the extreme southwest tip of Nova Scotia. I still have some cousins here, and it will be good to see them. The only bad news is that we will be heading home on Sunday, so watching football is out of the question. We can still get our picks done.

Titans greatly disappointed me this week, and perhaps some of the good things that were being said aren't correct. Jacksonville by 6

Bill's are building something there in the city by the lake. Buffalo by 9

Too bad there's no such thing as relegation in the NFL. Dallas by 27 LOCK

Rogers looks like he still has some skills and something around him. Green Bay by 10 LOCK

Falcons were an unpleasant surprise last week, but given their opponent, hey go wrong? Atlanta by 8

Things are looking mighty black for the Ravens. Ksnsas City by 12 LOCK

Raiders were what the ancient Vikings were called. Now a Raider is a pale imitation of those fierce Norsemen. Minnesota by 7

Maybe Jets will do a little better than Patriots' last 2 opponents. New England by 28

Eagles are another team that seemed to play below their best. They should recover this week. Philadelphia by 13

Cam Newton needs to ditch the hats and work on his game. Arizona by 4

Reality sets in for Eli as he sits watching the Jones boy.Tampa Bay by 13

After last week I'm really not sure about Chargers, but I'm less sure about Texans. Los Angeles (American Conference) by 6

Steelers put money in the gum machine, but nothing came out. Now they can't get their quarter back. San Francisco by 10

Another quarterback in trouble. They're dropping like flies. Seattle by 16 LOCK

Browns are elevated to a featured game, but will receive their comeuppance. Los Angeles (National Conference) by 17 LOCK

Washington in the summer is unbearable, but the Bears do well in the autumn. Chicago by 7
