I can't pick Cincinnati after Monday night. Arizona in a convincing upset. I also like Cleveland to go to San Francisco and take a W home. Otherwise I'm light on underdogs.

On Yahoo Pick 'Em three teams have 3 percent or less of fans choosing them to win: Jets (at Eagles), Washington (at Patriots) and Colts (at Chiefs).

I'm sure none of you are old enough to remember these, but the travelogues in the movies of yore always ended something like "And as the sun sinks slowly in the west, we say goodbye to the beautiful island of..." So I will start my picks with "As Howard_T sinks slowly in the standings, he says goodbye to any chance at first place in the NFL pick 'em." There's hope yet, but when one blows 2 locks, it is hard to see it.

And we start with a really tough call. Seattle by 7

Now a not so tough call. Chicago by 14 LOCK

Will Titans show anything better than mediocrity? Buffalo by 3

Wow! A double nickel against the Rams. What can they do in NoLa? Tampa Bay by 9

Like their animal mascot, Bengals are endangered. Arizona by 6

Texans and Falcons both seem to be inconsistent. The potential is there for either to take this one. Houston by 7

The cats from the largest city in Lower Georgia (OK, it's Florida, but it doesn't feel like it} will take control over the litter box. Jacksonville by 9

It's a short flight from New Jersey to Philadelphia, but Jets ought to stay on the ground at home. Philadelphia by 16 LOCK

Patriots have few players to catch the ball, have a kicker that has come off of the "discontinued" rack, and struggled with the run in their last game. Does this matter? Are you serious in asking? New England by 17 LOCK

Ravens took a step backward while Steelers are taking baby steps. Pittsburgh by 3

The Whole Town's Talkin' About the Jones Boy (Mills Brothers, 1954). It was a catchy tune, but Vikings might write some new lyrics. Minnesota by 11

Broncos have come close a couple of times, but this is the week that the Chargers play like they ought to. Los Angeles (American Conference) by 8

From the frozen tundra of... Oops! From the well groomed turf of Dallas. Same teams, different year. Dallas by 12

Maybe there's something to Dem Dawgs. Cleveland by 6
