8 of 13 picking the winners, which is bad enough, but the spread let me down. 5 out of 13 is the official mark since Jacksonville and Pittsburg punked out and missed my spread, and the Rams overachieved, losing by only 17 instead of 21.
Those are the ones you hate; the winners running out the clock rather than thoughtfully driving to another score so you beat your spread.
Now, for WEEK FIVE:
TEN @ BAL - One of the Titans’ linebackers said, “we still have time to go 4-12.” I like that guy. They won’t, though. However, they won’t go undefeated. This is it. They finally lose in Baltimore. Ravens by 3.
KC @ CAR - The Chiefs are finally on a winning streak! Well, okay, they’ve won only one. But it was against the awe-inspiring Broncos. You gotta give them props for that. Thus, I’ll limit Carolina to a 3 point win. Panthers by 3.
CHI @ DET - Bears by 21.
ATL @ GB - Ah, the Packers. A mystery team, wrapped in obfuscatory and enigmatic… well, they are possibly overrated. Many people are hanging all over Rodgers’ sack, proclaiming him to be the next Messiah, but he’ll have to do time eating locusts first. Happily, thay are at home against a pack of girly boys. Packers by 3.
IND @ HOU - Indy’s record is a lie. They are still a championship game contender. Colts by 7. FEARLESS SPREAD
SD @ MIA - After Miami’s last dominating victory, I suppose I should give them a shot. However, Turner will only be amused by Miami’s attempts at shenanigans. He’ll shillelagh them with a clock-eating running game. Bolts by 4.
SEA @ NYG - Seahawks by 21.
WAS @ PHI - NFC East battle! 2 of the 4 best teams in the league playing! Either could win. Well, one surely will. Since it is in Philly, I have to go with the Iggles by 3.
TB @ DEN - Wow, Tampa is hot right now, eh? But they’re Tampa. I mean… I cannot pick them this week. Can they go to Mile High and win one? No. Broncos by 4.
BUF @ ARI - For the love of God, place no bets on this game. Toss a coin. Er… Cardinals by 1.
CIN @ DAL - Dallas by 15. There you go, Brian Tomlinson. Three scores, and two are touchdowns.
NE @ SF - Hrm. Well, objectively I have to go with the Patriots by 7, though I hope they lose by 21. FEARLESS SPREAD
PIT @ JAC - The game to watch. Jacksonville by 3.
MIN @ NO - New Orleans by 7. FEARLESS SPREAD
