HUGE..make that HUGE game for Big Blue coming off their bye week. The Giants have been notoriously bad the first game after the bye and have stunk in the 2nd half under Tom Coughlin. And the 2nd half starts out with a bang as the NFC East leading Dallas Cowboys come to town. The two teams met in the 1st week and the Giants 'D' got torched for 45 points. The offense sparkled with 35, but the 'D' was putrid. Thankfully things have changed since then.
Giants +1 vs. Cowboys
This is probably more of heart pick than a head pick, but we have to do it. Hopefully this won't come down to a Lawrence Tynes kick.
Bills -2.5 at Dolphins
There's no reason to think the Dolphins will win one any time soon.
Broncos +3.5 at Chiefs
The Broncos are reeling and we don't have much confidence them. That being said, the Chiefs have no LJ. This should be a close one.
Jaguars +4 at Titans
Still Quinn Gray at QB, but this Titans team can't score. Jags are physical and should do a punishing job to pull out a win. At the very least they will cover.
Browns +9.5 at Steelers
A lot of pundits are picking the Steelers in a blow out. Maybe they were influenced by Monday's destroy job of the Ravens. We don't see that happening. Steelers will win, but by 7.
Packers -6 vs. Vikings
Always a tough game, no matter the location. Adrian Peterson is coming off his 296 yd. game, but his QB still stinks. Favre should pick the Vikes apart.
Eagles +2.5 at Redskins
This could be a really bad game or a very good game. A lot depends on which Eagles team shows up. The Eagles 'D' should do enough to pull off a minor upset.
Saints -11 vs. Rams
This is going to be a nightmare for Rams fans. Drew Brees should have another 400 yards passing before this one is over, which will be early.
Panthers -4 vs. Falcons
Talk about a bad game. Panthers are still figuring out who'll be starting at QB. Surprised this isn't a 2.5 pt game.
Bengals +4 at Ravens
Remember when this was a good game? It wasn't that long ago. Bengals should win a snorefest.
Bears -3.5 at Raiders
Bears should kick some Al Davis ass.
Lions +1.5 at Cards
We're always leery of picking the Lions on the road and you can't be influenced by last week's blow out of the Broncos at home. All that being said, the Lions should earn a big road win.
Colts -3.5 at Chargers
We're a little surprised that the Colts are only favored by 3.5. We thin their defense and Peyton Manning will lead to a double digit win.
Seahawks -10 vs. 49ers
What a terrible MNF game. The Seahawks aren't that good, but the Niners are just awful. Blow out city.
