Upset Special Week
Baltimore Ravens by 3.5 at home over the Denver Broncos
This year the Broncos have played tough games and easy ones and every week the show up and silence doubters. Every week we look for the wheels to come off and this team to fall apart. Maybe it is time to start believing. Broncos take this close one.
Tennessee Titans by 3 at home over the Jacksonville Jaguars
At 3-3 the Jaguars are infinitely better then the 0-6 Titans. With Vince Young back at the helm for the Titans things are somehow about to get worse. Jacksonville wins this one by a bunch.
Detroit Lions by 4 at home over the St. Louis Rams
I know the Rams are 0-7 this season but the Lions have only won 1 game since before their bye week in the 2007 season. I think them being the favored over anyone at this point is a little optimistic. St. Louis squeaks out their first victory on the road.
New York Giants by 1 at the Philadelphia Eagles
The Giants looked like gods until meeting the Saints 2 weeks ago when they got destroyed. They lost again last week to the Cardinals. With 2 bad showings in a row you have to start to wonder about how good they actually are. Eagles win a close divisional game handing the Giants their 3 loss in a row.
After failing to correctly pick a close one last week, so we can use some lower end teams when they have good matchups I think I should go with a safe one this week. I will take the Bears over the Browns. The Browns are awful and continue to get rid of all talent from their team. Bears shouldn’t have to do too much to win this one.
