Weekly Picks

A pretty good start to the season with 4 points. But now the question becomes which performances that we saw in Week 1 portend something larger for the remainder of the season and which are aberrations to be ignored.

new england -6 NEW ORLEANS
Patriots will rebound. Not so sure about the Saints. More on this game later. Hint: we're taking the over even though it's an astronomical 56 1/2 points.

PITTSBURGH -5 1/2 minnesota
It's the oldest trap in the book, team looks surprisingly good on Monday night and everyone thinks they're great. And Sam Bradford's health also an issue here.

dallas -2 1/2 DENVER
I just don't trust Trevor Siemian.

JACKSONVILLE +1 tennessee
I am certainly not sure about this one but I wouldn't be shocked if the Jags won this game at home.

BEST BET
TAMPA BAY -6 1/2 chicago

The ExpensiveCornPrices are still my breakout team for this season and that extra week off won't slow them down.

Season: 3-2 (4 points)
Best Bets: 1-0
Home favorites: 2-1

Song of the Week

"You & I" - Sons of Maria
You all know how I feel about the creative use of a sample. This is surely the best work anyone has ever done with Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car."

Weekly Picks

Welcome back for another season of barely adequate picks. Crazy line movements for week 1 which is so difficult anyway.
Bonus for this season, I'll be throwing in an undefined number of over/under picks.

HOUSTON -5 jacksonville
I think the Jags will suck again this year and Houston should probably be 9-7 again. Tom Savage won't be great but he should be good enough. Just worried that morons bet on Houston thinking they will be galvanized by Harvey similar to what happened to the Saints after Katrina.

LOS ANGELES RAMS -4 indianapolis
I think the Rams will be improved. I think the Colts will be bad, especially without Andrew Luck.

pittsburgh -9 CLEVELAND
The Steelers are much better than the Browns.

carolina -5 SAN FRANCISCO
The Panthers will have a bounceback year and the 9ers will still suck.

BEST BET
MINNESOTA -3 new orleans

Not really sure about this one as a best bet but I don't love any of the other 4 games more.

Totals:
BUFFALO/new york jets under 40
TENNESSEE/oakland under 50 1/2
CLEVELAND/pittsburgh under 46 1/2
DALLAS/new york giants over 47 1/2

The Best Thing Someone in a Mets Hat Has Done All Year

Joe Garcia of Spring, Texas was saved from the floodwaters of Hurricane Harvey by a rescue boat.
First, he loaded some belongings onto the boat, then turned back for one more prized possession, his German Shepherd, Heidi.
