The Detroit Lions' bye week is here, which means I'll also take a pass on this week's picks. Just kidding, Kudos!

Bye weeks suck, though. I had a feeling this would be a perfectly timed bye week for the Lions this year, and it is given their trip to London and all of their injuries, but now I have nothing to look forward to this weekend! Spend time with my family on Sunday, you say? Hah! Okay... (No, seriously, this is what I will happily do.) But it doesn't mean the Lions fan in me doesn't still hate the off week. Bye weeks to me are like the off day after Opening Day in MLB, the day after Christmas or my favorite television show airing a re-run in the middle of a season because producers didn't want a new episode competing against a big event. A real void in my life.

I'll make it through, though.

Saints (-2.5) over PANTHERS
BENGALS (-11) over Jaguars
BROWNS (-6.5) over Buccaneers
