Minnesota @ Chicago over 37
I am pretty high on the Bears covering -5 points, but my eyebrows really raised when I saw the points on this one. Now that Griese is taking snaps the Bears will start to put up over 20 a game. Minnesota is licking their chops as well…with either of their QB’s they will rely on Peterson early and that will open up a banged up Chicago secondary(both Tillman and Vasher are hobbling like a sorority girl just victimized by a fraternity ‘train’). The once good Bears D will give up 20+…again.
Carolina @ Arizona -5
Both teams are looking for a leader right now, and they are at complete opposite extremes with their choices. The Panthers are slowly realizing that David Carr is really as bad as he showed in Houston for several years, plus he is banged up to boot. On the Cardinals side, you have a veteran in Kurt Warner who is very healthy and is one of the most precise pigskin chuckers when he is. Kurt won’t be a good choice after week 10 cuz his old bones will wear down, but this week he is fresh, he will rely on the Edge to control the clock, and he will find Fitzgerald at least seven times. This spells victory in my book. Zona by 10.
