The surprise of the week is the line for the (2-2) Eagles at the (0-4) 49ers shows the 49ers a 2.5 point favorite! I am going with the line and saying the winless 9ers will get on the board against the Kolb led Eagles. The 9ers will drop their safeties keeping everything in front of them making the Eagles dink and dunk all the way down the field. The 9ers problem hasn’t been the defense and it won’t be this week. The 9ers win 13-10 in a snoozefest!!
The second lock of the week is the (1-2) Vikings with the newly acquired Randy Moss against the (3-1) Jets. The addition of Moss won’t help the Vikings this week as Revis Island comes back from injury to limit Moss’s touches. The Jets will let Farve expose himself, again for the old quarterback he is. Jets 23 and the Vikes 20.
The first shock of the week is the (2-2) Redskins to upset the (3-1) Packers. The Packers are favored by 3 on the road, but never underestimate the home dog. One never knows what they will get from the Redskins, but this week the good Skins show up and stop the air attack of the Packers 24-20.
The second shock is a bad game, but the only one I can really go with. The (2-2) Rams are 3 point dogs to the (0-4) Lions. The Lions are better than their record shows, they have been in every game even with a back-up quarterback. The problem is Detroit doesn’t have a running game and Bradford is putting up pretty good numbers. The Rams win on the road and keep the Lions winless 17-13.
The first jock is Peyton Manning, who has the luxury of playing the undefeated Chiefs. That will change Sunday afternoon, but what won’t change is Manning slinging it all over the yard. Peyton will have over 300 yards and at least three touchdowns against the Chiefs.
The second jock is Matt Schaub of the Houston Texans. They are playing the New York football Giants and Schaub will go off. The bad Giants will show up, the one without the pass rush or cohesive offensive line. Schaub will throw for 300 yards and two touchdowns. Mark it down!!
