Los Angeles Chargers (-1.5) at Cleveland
Cleveland is clearly improved. 2-0-1 at home. But the Chargers are better. 1.5 doesn’t seem like enough.
Los Angeles Chargers 30, Cleveland 23.
Buffalo at Houston (-7.5)
All five of Houston’s games have been decided by 7 points or less. Three by three points. Buffalo ain’t great and is on the road. But the feeling is they may keep it close.
Houston 24, Buffalo 18.
Carolina at Washington (-1.5)
The ‘Skins have been playing well every other week. This is the good one.
Washington 27, Carolina 24.
Chicago (-3.5) at Miami
Are the Bears for real? Looks like they could be. I know Miami isn’t and this will put them back to 3-3 after that phony 3-0 start.
Chicago 24, Miami 17.
Pittsburgh at Cincinnati (-2.5)
Speaking of fraud teams, the Bengals can’t be as good as 4-1, can they?! Two words: Marvin Lewis. That should answer your question.
Pittsburgh 41, Cincinnati 34.
Seattle (-3.5) at Oakland
Jon Gruden probably should have stayed in the booth after being away from the game for a decade. Then again, we can’t expect him to perform miracles with this Raiders team in his first year.
Seattle 27, Oakland 13.
Indianapolis at New York Jets (-2.5)
Indianapolis 31, New York Jets 17.
Arizona at Minnesota (-10.5)
Disappointing year for the Vikes thus far, but Arizona appears to be wretched this year, last week’s win against the possibly equally wretched 49ers notwithstanding.
Minnesota 34, Arizona 10.
Tampa Bay at Atlanta (-3.5)
I’m not sure how good the Falcons actually are, but I’m fairly certain they should be better than 1-4. I also think they are better than the Bucs. At least in their home stadium.
Atlanta 31, Tampa Bay 27.
Los Angeles Rams (-7.5) at Denver
The Rams look unstoppable. That’s all.
Los Angeles Rams 45, Denver 24.
Baltimore (-2.5) at Tennessee
This one may be another snoozefest. But at least the teams involved are better than the other one we spoke about earlier.
Baltimore 20, Tennessee 17.
Jacksonville (-3.5) at Dallas
Blake Bortles was brutal last week. And he sucks anyway. But Dallas sucks more. Similar to Marvin Lewis, I have no idea how Jason Garrett has hung on so long there.
Jacksonville 34, Dallas 16.
Kansas City at New England (-3.5)
Neither defense should stop either offense. But with all the weapons the Chiefs have, I have no idea how the Pats cover all of them. KC has had some big wins against the Pats in the middle of the regular season in recent years too. But the Patriots have also come out of the woodwork in games like this and shut a young QB down…especially in Foxborough. If the Pats lose, they will find themselves down by 3 games already in the AFC in the race for home-field advantage. They have risen to the occasion before. That all being said, I wish I could pick them here, but I simply can’t.
Kansas City 45, New England 34.
San Francisco at Green Bay (-9.5)
Boy, did the Niners season go right down the tubes once Jimmy Football got injured.
Green Bay 37, San Francisco 13.
Week (against the spread): 1-0
Week (straight up): 1-0
Season (against the spread): 38-41
Season (straight up): 46-33
