Indianapolis (-3.5) at Tennessee: I predict that Peyton gets things turned around against the Titans.
Cleveland (+1) at Buffalo: I think that Mangenius has the Browns pointing the right way for the future.
Atlanta (-9) at Carolina: The Falcons should have no problems with this game.
Green Bay (-7) at Detroit: I like what Jim Schwartz is doing in Detroit. That said, don't expect the Packers to be seriously challenged here.
Oakland at Jacksonville (-4): The Raiders are still in the AFC West chase. Unbelieveable. After this week, I don't think they will be.
NY Giants (-2) at Minnesota: Leslie Frazier is 2-0 as the Vikings head coach. Now he has some real competition.
Cincinnati at Pittsburgh (-9.5): Come one, come all! See the last four games of Marvin Lewis as Bengals head coach starting with this game against the Steelers and see the losing continue.
Tampa Bay (-2) at Washington: Tampa is the youngest team in the league and is more talented than the Redskins. Maybe the Haynesworth drama being over will help the Redskins, maybe not.
St Louis at New Orleans (-10): Drew Brees should have a good day against the Rams secondary.
Seattle at San Francisco (-5.5): Two teams that are not good but still in the NFC West title contention. I don't like even thinking about taking Seattle on the road.
New England (-3) at Chicago: Best team in the NFL will beat the Bears.
Denver (-4) at Arizona: Arizona has quit on the season. The Broncos have stopped all the drama by firing Josh McDaniels. They should be able to win.
Miami at NY Jets (-5.5): Imagine how angry the Jets are since New England embarrassed them. And the Dolphins need a good quarterback.
Kansas City at San Diego (-7): If Matt Cassel did not have an appendectomy, I would have went with the Chiefs. But him being out or limited means that the chargers will control this game.
Philadelphia at Dallas (+3.5): I am starting to believe in Jason Garrett. We will see how well he is with this game.
Baltimore (-2.5) at Houston: The Ravens are a real dangerous team coming off a loss. Watch for them to blow out the Texans.
