This week appears a bit easier than last week, which saw a lot of fairly evenly matched contests and ended up producing a few upsets. There's some good games this week namely the Tampa vs. Atlanta game which should give us some idea of which of those two teams are for real... Here are my tops picks with the rest after the jump.
Jets Over Lions - Detroit hasn't won many games, but they haven't been the doormat we've seen in the past. Still, I think the Jets bounce back from last week's embarrassing shut out at home with a solid win on the road.
Texans over Chargers - The Texans certainly haven't turned out to be the team they looked like at the start of the year and San Diego is one of the league's biggest disappointments. This game is a toss up to me, so I'm going with the home team.
Giants over Seahawks - This is a game I would not be surprised to see go either way especially since it's in Seattle.. I'm just making a gut call here. I could see the Seattle offensive line falling apart against the Giants pass rush.
Raiders over Chiefs - A much more interesting division matchup at this point than anyone ever thought. The Chiefs have played well all year and the Raiders have been fantastic the past two weeks. Really a toss up but I'll take the home team.
Steelers over Bengals - Another real disappointment is the Bengals this season. The Pittsburgh defense should have little problem dealing with suddenly terrible Carson Palmer and their famous, yet pretty average WR corps.
