This Week’s Games

BILLY: The week after a Cowboys’ loss is always the hardest. If they lose this week to the Bengals, I’ll probably not leave my room.
JENNIFER: My one-word description of last week’s performance: Bleh.

CHIEFS AT PANTHERS
LINE: Panthers by 9.5
BILLY: Carolina’s a better team, and they’re at home. I really don’t see an upset here. Panthers 27, Chiefs 13
JENNIFER: Panthers, on fire, at home, against KC. PANTHERS.

BEARS AT LIONS
LINE: Bears by 3.5
BILLY: The Matt Millen era has come to an end, which has to mean something. I say it means a win this week. Lions 28, Bears 24
JENNIFER: The Bears are high after last weeks huge win over the Eagles. The Lions are staring 0 and 4 in the face…wonder if we’ll see another coach fired early in the season? BEARS.

FALCONS AT PACKERS
LINE: No line
BILLY: Whether it’s Aaron Rodgers or Matt Flynn, Atlanta’s not strong enough yet to win this one on the road. Packers 30, Falcons 21
JENNIFER: Falcons v Packers–If Aaron Rodgers can’t beat a rookie QB at home, I’ll cry. Go Pack! Go Pack! Go Pack! PACKERS.

CHARGERS at DOLPHINS
LINE: Chargers by 6.5
BILLY: Oooh, interesting game. Let’s relive the 1982 AFC Title game … only this time, Chargers win. Chargers 37, Dolphins 31
JENNIFER: Just because they beat Cassel and Co, doesn’t mean they’re for real. CHARGERS.

SEAHAWKS at GIANTS
LINE: Giants by 7
BILLY: It saddens me to say this … but New York stays undefeated and in first place in the NFC East. Giants 26, Seahawks 18
JENNIFER: I missed picking the Gigantes last week! GIGANTES.

REDSKINS at EAGLES
LINE: Eagles by 6
BILLY: Stupid Redskins. Eagles 41, Redskins 10
JENNIFER: Ooh…the Redskins just celebrated a major victory over the Cowboys (tee hee) and the Eagles just lost to the Bears. I’m going with Eagles at home as I just don’t think the Skins can pull off two tough division wins in a row. EAGLES.

TITANS at RAVENS
LINE: Titans by 3
BILLY: Titans are great … but Baltimore looked tough in Pittsburgh last week. Tennessee falls. Ravens 20, Titans 17
JENNIFER: Titans are white hot. TITANS.

COLTS at TEXANS
LINE: Colts by 3
BILLY: Colts bye week means two weeks to prepare and get their heads straight. Sorry, Houston. Colts 34, Texans 27
JENNIFER: Why did I think this game had already happened? COLTS.

BUCS at BRONCOS
LINE: Broncos by 3
BILLY: Denver crashed back to earth last week in Kansas City. They need this one. Broncos 26, Bucs 13
JENNIFER: (Announcer voice, please) The Bucs Versus The Broncos in a Wild West Shootout. I don’t really know if it’ll be a shootout, I just know I’m picking the BRONCOS.

BILLS at CARDINALS
LINE: Cardinals by 1
BILLY: Another AFC undefeated team falls. Bills are undefeated right? Cardinals 33, Bills 24
JENNIFER: It could happen, but I’m not thinking the Cards win off the Bills. BILLS.

PATRIOTS at 49ers
LINE: Patriots by 3
BILLY: One of those strange “these teams don’t look right playing each other” games … kinda like Cardinals vs. Bills or Red Sox vs. Mavericks. Patriots 23, 49ers 10
JENNIFER:Great for the Pats that they can come back from a stunner vs the Dolphins and kick the crud out of the Niners. PATS.

BENGALS at COWBOYS
LINE: Cowboys by 16.5
BILLY: Dallas by a landslide, but I really hope Chad Johnson scores Cincy’s lone TD and kisses the star. Cowboys 30, Bengals 10
JENNIFER: Look for cry-baby TO and Team to return to their stupid winning ways. Stupid COWBOYS.

STEELERS at JAGUARS
LINE: Jaguars by 4
BILLY: Three in a row for Jacksonville. Jaguars 23, Steelers 17
JENNIFER: The Steelers aren’t doing anything easy this season, are they? I think they’re slowly getting into a groove, though. STEELERS.

VIKINGS at SAINTS
LINE: Saints by 3
BILLY: Adrian Peterson should run all over this defense … Vikings 27, Saints 24
JENNIFER: Are you serious? This is the MNF game? Thank goodness for How I Met Your Mother. SAINTS.

And this from Jennifer, for Billy: You just deal with the dealt…you’re hand…play…handed…what?
