BILLY: Well, last week was better for me, though I still trail Jennifer by two games. Against the line, however, I’m an awful nine games below .500. I would have no business bringing that kind of record to Vegas.
JENNIFER: I simply cannot believe that in the blink of an eye we are already in Week 4 of the NFL season. Before we know it, the Superbowl will be here and we’ll be in the sad off season.
Things are not happy for me with my Packers losing to the Cowboys and Favre getting beat down. Maybe Week 4 will bring better things.
Oh, and for the record, my picks were turned in BEFORE deadline last week.
Jennifer — 11-5
Billy — 11-5
Billy (against the line) — 6-10
Jennifer — 29-18
Billy — 27-20
Billy (against the line) — 19-28
FALCONS at PANTHERS
LINE: Panthers by 7
BILLY’S PICK: Atlanta’s two wins have come against two very bad teams. Plus, they’re a different team outside of that dome. Panthers 28, Falcons 12
JENNIFER’S PICK: You’ll see the Panthers return to their winning ways this week. If not, they need to bench Steve Smith again. PANTHERS.
BILLS at RAMS
LINE: Bills by 8
BILLY’S PICK: I just feel an upset here. I know I shouldn’t be making odd picks like this while trying to catch up … but I just feel it. Rams 27, Bills 24
JENNIFER’S PICK: -Bor-ing. BILLS.
BROWNS at BENGALS
LINE: Bengals by 3.5
BILLY’S PICK: Cleveland’s still a better team … Brady Quinn sees time if they stink it up here. Browns 30, Bengals 27
JENNIFER’S PICK: Browns v Bengals–I’m going with the Bengals at home. BENGALS.
REDSKINS at COWBOYS
LINE: Cowboys by 11
BILLY’S PICK: The big line worries me … as these teams usually play it close. Still, who am I to pick against this juggernaut? Cowboys 40, Redskins 17
JENNIFER’S PICK: Ooooh! This is always a good game. COWBOYS.
BRONCOS at CHIEFS
LINE: Broncos by 9.5
BILLY’S PICK: Super Nintendo Broncos 38, Chiefs 12
JENNIFER’S PICK: Stupid Denver. BRONCOS.
TEXANS at JAGUARS
LINE: Jaguars by 7
BILLY’S PICK: Jacksonville saved its season against the Colts. It can lose it with a loss this week. Jaguars 24, Texans 22
JENNIFER’S PICK: I don’t know why, but I’m feeling an upset. TEXANS.
49ers at SAINTS
LINE: Saints by 5
BILLY’S PICK: New Orleans has lost a few heartbreakers .. it’ll be nice to have a crappy team at home. Saints 35, 49ers 17
JENNIFER’S PICK: Seriously. The Niners are looking better this year than they have in a while, but if the Saints can’t beat the Niners, they need to just go back home. SAINTS
CARDINALS at JETS
LINE: Jets by 1.5
BILLY’S PICK: Tough game … I just can’t see the Jet Favres dropping to 1-3. Jets 28, Cardinals 24
JENNIFER’S PICK: I’m just sad. But I’m still picking the Jets. Just sadly. Go Jets. Go Jets. Go Jets. JETS.
EAGLES at BEARS
LINE: Eagles by 3
BILLY’S PICK: Philadelphia’s looking solid. They’ll win another low-scoring one this week. Eagles 14, Bears 10
JENNIFER’S PICK: Eagles win again this week. EAGLES.
CHARGERS at RAIDERS
LINE: Chargers by 7.5
BILLY’S PICK: This one won’t be close .. Lane Kiffin’s a goner. Chargers 42, Raiders 7
JENNIFER’S PICK: Stupid Chargers. No matter what I pick here, the opposite will happen. CHARGERS.
PACKERS at BUCS
LINE: Bucs by 1
BILLY’S PICK: Aaron Rodgers is still good, Green Bay. Don’t let the Dallas game get you down. Tee hee. Packers 21, Bucs 17
JENNIFER’S PICK: If Aaron and Co know what’s good for them, they bring home the W this week. Go Pack! Go Pack! Go Pack! PACKERS!!
VIKINGS at TITANS
LINE: Titans by 3
BILLY’S PICK: Probably the most intriguing game on the slate this week. I say Tennessee’s for real if they’re impressive in this one. Titans 20, Vikings 14
JENNIFER’S PICK: Ooh, good game. TITANS. On a roll.
RAVENS at STEELERS
LINE: Steelers by 5.5
BILLY’S PICK: Baltimore’s Flacco bubble bursts Monday. Steelers 31, Ravens 17
JENNIFER’S PICK: Look for the Steelers to make up for last week’s loss against a tough Philly team. STEELERS.
