Pittsburgh comes to the Ralph this weekend, but it won’t be much of a home game for the Bills. The game miraculously sold out, which is most likely due to Steeler fans coming up to Buffalo. One of my teammates put it best: He’d bet the house except he never bets against the Bills.
Pittsburgh at Bills (+6 1/2)–Pittsburgh
Tennessee (+6 1/2) at Houston–Houston
Green Bay (+2) at Atlanta–Green Bay
Minnesota (+1) at Washington–Washington*
Jacksonville (+7) at N.Y. Giants–Giants
Carolina (+10) at Cleveland–Cleveland. I want anyone +10 against the Browns, but I’m intrigued by Jake Delhomme against his old team.
Kansas City at Seattle (+1 1/2)–Chiefs
Miami (+3) at Oakland–Oakland
St. Louis (+4) at Denver–Rams
Philadelphia at Chicago (+3 1/2)–Eagles
Tampa Bay (+7 1/2) at Baltimore–Bucs
San Diego (+3) at Indianapolis–Peyton Manning doesn’t lose at night.
San Francisco at Arizona (+1)–49ers
Feel like I picked too many favorites, but changing picks is like picking children. Okay not quite, but I couldn’t find any I would change.
On a related note, the Bills promoted Naaman Roosevelt this week. Projected stat line: 3 offensive plays, 1 catch, 4 yards, all garbage time. Might get in on kickoff too.
