Something is going around the Detroit Lions, and I probably have it. I have been coughing and (redacted) and (redacted) for a week. It has not been pleasant. These nose picks may require a doctor's attention before it spreads elsewhere:
RAMS (-4.5) over Cardinals
Shaun Hill vs. Drew Stanton. Winner gets to back up Matthew Stafford in an alternate world.
FALCONS (+2.5) over Steelers
BILLS (+4.5) over Packers
Carry Jim Schwartz off the field! I beg you.
Bengals (+1) over BROWNS
Johnny Football's first career start gets the spread to flip. If I had a million disposable dollars to gamble away, I would put it on the Bengals here. (Johnny Manziel money sign thing.)
COLTS (-6.5) over Texans
Andrew Luck to T.Y. Hilton 30 times overcomes another J.J. Watt freakish performance.
CHIEFS (-10) over Raiders
The Chiefs have had a full week to realize they can't overlook anybody in the NFL. Vengeance game.
PATRIOTS (-7.5) over Dolphins
Speaking of vengeance. This will be Week 1 revenge.
GIANTS (-6.5) over Redskins
Colt McCoy would play in a neck brace before Jay Gruden went back to RGIII.
Bucs (+3) over PANTHERS
I liked the Panthers this week until their starting quarterback got into a car accident and broke his back.
RAVENS (-14) over Jaguars
The Jags haven't played in Baltimore since 2008, but they'll remember pretty quickly how to lose there.
TITANS (+2) over Jets
Jake Locker is back for the Titans in this week's Watch If You Want To Stay Sick Game of the Week.
Broncos (-4) over CHARGERS
Neither quarterback has looked right recently, but I'll go with Manning here.
LIONS (-7.5) over Vikings
The 34-17 home trifecta, I hope.
SEAHAWKS (-10) over 49ers
What's up, Jim Harbaugh?
Cowboys (+3.5) over EAGLES
Dez Bryant yelling loud noises.
Saints (-3) over BEARS
If I know the Bears like I think I do, they'll lay down against the Saints while looking ahead to ruining this fan's Week 16 hopes and dreams.
