CHICAGO BEARS @ ATLANTA FALCONS (-3)
For a cat that luvs Da Coach, Jay Cutler, nationally televised night games featuring his favorite team, and Asian adult film stars, you know I’m 100% ATS committed when I’m rolling with a Bears opponent. The Falcons offense is more diverse than Aurora Snow in My Sister’s Hot Friend 4, and the Chicago D just doesn’t have any playmakers in the secondary and sports a pedestrian DT rotation with Israel Idonijie out of commission with a bum knee. While I hope I’m wrong, I have a feeling Jay “Jerk-Face, but I luv him” Cutler doesn’t have the weapons to keep pace on the scoreboard against a balanced Hotlanta attack at home. (BTW, why do I always think of a stripper named "Cocktail" everytime I write the word "Hotlanta"?)
Final Score: BEARS 20 FALCONS 31
CAROLINA PANTHERS (-3) @ TAMPA BAY SUCKANEERS
While Jake DelSpazzholmme squeaked out a win against the lowly Redskins, believe it or not, the Panthers are riding a ”we saved our season after the bye week and believe we’re still frickin good”-mojo and the inkling they can right a sinking ship with contests against the Suckaneers & bumbling Bills the next two weeks. Throw-in a Tampa QB that might be the most unknown signal-caller in the last decade, and I can’t see how DeAngelo Williams & Stevie Smith don’t dominate against a defense that is already playing youngsters for next year.
Final Score: PANTHERS 24 SUCKANEERS 13
Alright, alright, let’s get this out of the way. Last week I sucked. I now know how it feels to play for the Raiders. But this week, I’m coming back with more analysis than places to tuck a buck at the local lingerie show. I guarantee that you will not be picking me last to be on your handicapping them after this week.
CLEVELAND BROWNS @ PITTSBURGH STEELERS (OVA 38)
For all of us who watched the Browns play a game of grab @ss with the Bills last week, I think the NFL officially owes us an apology and a firing of Dick Jauron. That game set NFL offense back by 100 years. I’m pretty sure the total scores from each of the MLB playoff games this week were higher. While I’m no fan of Manggenius, he does know offense and you can be sure that was the focus of Brown’s practice this week. On top of that, I know the Steelers can score and also aren’t all that good at stopping other people from doing it this year. Hell, they let Daunte Culpepper and the Lions put up 20 on them last week. I know the Hair Polamalu is back this week, but 38 is just too low of an Ova to turn away from. Sit back and root for the points.
Final Score: BROWNS 17 STEELERS 28
BUFFALO BILLS @ NEW YORK JETS (-10)
The Jets have hit the skids the past two weeks like a background extra in Rad (Greg Gamble’s favorite movie). What’s the best solution to get back on track, play the Buffalo Bills at home, of course. The weather is expected to be sloppy, which will play into the Jets game plan of wanting to run the ball and to play hard nose D. As for the Bills, see my commentary above with the added note that they have absolutely no LB core. J-E-T-S easy winners tomorrow.
Final Score: BILLS 10 JETS 30
