The first lock of the week is the Steelers over the Chiefs. The Chiefs were looking like a better team, whether they were ACTUALLY a better team is up for debate. For whatever reason, probably the Steelers are a good national draw NBC decided not to change games. I'm sure they are right, the Eagles vs. the Patriots won't be a better game. The Steelers run with this one 31 - 3.
The second lock of the week is the Saints over the Giants. There are the good Giants that beat New England a couple of weeks ago and then the Giants that lose to the Seahawks. The G-men have lost two in a row, and it may be four in a row before they get to meet the Cowboys in Cowboys Stadium. It's a rough patch for the G-men as they lose to the Saints on the road 27 - 20.
The Titans are favored over the Buccaneers at home today by 3. The Bucs haven't been a consistent team, but then again neither have the Titans. Hasselbeck isn't 100% and Chris Johnson hasn't been Chris Johnson all year, my fantasy team is a clear indication incase you needed one. I like the Bucs on the road because they have the youth and the talent. This doesn't always win road games in the NFL, but it will this week 23 - 13.
The second shock of the week is the Redskins over the Seahawks. I almost went Eagles over Pats, but with Vick out and Maclin doubtful this doesn't seem like much of a game. So its the Deadskins over the Seaguls in a riveting game on Fox. Sucks to be you if that's the game in your market.
Tom Brady will throw for 300 yards and 2 scores against the Eagles. The Eagles may have two of their three starting corners on the bench today, like Tom Brady needs any help. Can I get a witness LeBrun?
The second jock is Eli Manning throwing for 300 yards 2 TD's (but also a couple of INT's) against the Saints. The Giants will be trying to come from behind which means 40+ throws for Manning. He will make a couple of mistakes, but also hit a couple of big ones.
