The first lock of the week is New York Jets over the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins have lost their starting quarterback for the year, who wasn't very good, and now have to rely on a backup that is even worse. It would appear the Fins are at the head of the line for Andrew Luck. That cause will be helped today as the Jets get back to .500 with a 20 - 6 win.
The second lock of the week is Bears over the Vikings. The Vikings have looked deplorable some weeks and looked like an actual NFL team for a half on other weeks. McNabb is over the hill and finished...but didn't we learn that last year when he was in Washington? The Bears aren't great, but they will be good enough to beat their divisional rivals at home 23 - 17.
The first shock is the Giants are favored over the Bills. I'm not jumping on the band wagon of the Bills just yet, but no one circles the wagons like the Buffalo Bills. I don't even know what that means, but I've heard Chris Berman say it so many times, I figured I'd try it out. The Bills excel at creating turnovers and the Giants excel at turning the ball over. Sounds like a match made in heaven for the circling wagons of the Bills. They win on the road 31 - 27.
The second shock will be the Cowboys winning on the road against the Patriots. That's right, Chris will be crying on his wings this afternoon and singing GaGa on Tuesday night. Which Romo shows up is key for Dallas, and the Patriots defense blows so with good Romo showing up the Boys get a much needed victory on the road 31 - 30.
Tom Brady will throw a lot, because thats what the Patriots do. The Cowboys D hasn't been that great against the pass so Brady will throw for 300 yards and two touchdowns.
Drew Brees will also throw a lot, because thats also what he likes to do. Unfortunately for the Saints they play the Bucs who have a decent defense and will "hold" Brees to a 275 yard and 2 touchdown game.
Listen Tuesday night as Chris will serenade Matt with Lady Gaga's You and I because the Pats go down at home. We are live at 10:00 p.m. eastern on www.blogtalkradio.com/sidelinershow
