Thursday night game
8:20 pm kickoff

FALCONS (-1) vs Ravens
Andy: Ravens. #wishtheycouldloseandcover
Figgs: Ravens.
Nick: Ratbirds. Baltimore wins almost every match up except QB, and Flacco's competent enough to help them get out of the ATL with a victory. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. If I'm Eric Cartman, then maybe Baltimore can be my Dark Lord Cthulhu. Go Ravens. ($)
Bucko: Da Birds. I'm sick of picking the Ravens.
Gopo: Falcons. Not sure what the line is just yet, but my guess is that it will be something like falcons +1-3. Taking the points and hating the Ravens full force at the same time? Sign me up.

Sunday games
1 pm kickoff

BROWNS (+3) vs Jets
Andy: Browns. #superbowl
Figgs: Browns. Last week I vowed to never pick against the Browns again. I am a man of my word.
Nick: Browns. You've gotta have heart. Miles and miles of heart.
Bucko: Jets. Completely agree with Gopo.
Gopo: Jets. I think the Jets stop the run and force McCoy to beat them. He might be able to do this, but I can't rely on a guy who has yet to throw a TD pass. I'll be pulling for the Browns in this game, but don't think they'll keep their streak going.

BUFFALOES (-3) vs Lions
Andy: Lions #justcoverbaby
Figgs: Lions. Again, I just can't give points with the Jills.
Nick: Lions.
Bucko: Lions. Bills will get a win, but I'm not feeling it this week.
Gopo: Bills. Changing this late Saturday for no real reason.

BEARS (+1) vs Vikes
Andy: Vikings. #lesseroftwoevils
Figgs: Vikes. Chicago is no good.
Nick: Vikings. Gonna keep riding against Chicago. One of these times I'm going to be right. ($)
Bucko: Vikings. I can't stand watching Cultler QB. His mechanics are terrible.
Gopo: Vikings. Vegas continues to think the Bears are good for some reason. Andy's right: they are the worst 5-3 team of all time.

BUCS (-7) vs Panthers
Andy: Bucs. #teamsineverthoughtidgiveseventotake
Figgs: Bucs. This a lot of ponts for a mediocre team, but Carolina is real bad.
Nick: Bucs. They're reliable against bad teams, and they almost upset the Falcons last week. ($)
Bucko: Bucs. This team is actually pretty good and the Panthers have no RB or QB worth a damn.
Gopo: Bucs. I really want to take the Panthers here, but every time I type the name down, I go back and delete it because it looks retarded.

JAGS (-1.5) vs Texans
Andy: Texans #rebound
Figgs: Texans. After winning some cash on Houston early in the year, they've cost me the past two weeks. Let's hope we can get back on the same page this week. ($)
Nick: Jags. Last minute change. Just a feeling, especially with the public leaning heavily on the Texans.
Bucko: Texans
Gopo: Texans. I will stick with my working hypothesis: the Jags are awful against mediocre and above teams.

COLTS (-7.5) vs Bengals
Andy: Bengals #stubborn
Figgs: Indy. Palmer is a fraud.
Nick: Bengals. Take the air out of the ball and run it.
Bucko: Colts. Once again why aren't the Bengals a better team.
Gopo: Colts. The only reason I would consider Cincy is because Palmer is an awesome garbage time QB and he's going to have a lot of garbage time.

DOLPHINS (+1.5) vs Titans
Andy: Titans #postbye
Figgs: Miami. Two pretty even teams, so give me the home team and the points.
Nick: Titans. Bye week, plus Miami can't move the football. ($ even)
Bucko: TIT-ans. Got to give Pennington a week or two before I feel comfortable picking the Dolphins.
Gopo: Titans. Tennessee will be ready for this one and the Dolphins are a pretty bad home team.

4 pm kickoff

BRONCOS (+1) vs Chiefs
Andy: Chieves #whynot
Figgs: KC.
Nick: Chiefs. KC should be able to chew these guys up on the ground. ($)
Bucko: Chiefs. Broncos really can't do much of anything.
Gopo: Chiefs. For absolutely no real reason - I think they just have lady luck on their side which has helped their confidence.

GIANTS (-14.5) vs Cowboys
Andy: Cowboys #toomanypoints
Figgs: Giants. I had the Cowboys typed in because this is a lot of points, but screw it, Dallas really blows.
Nick: Cowboys. 14.5 is a ton of points to give with a Giants team that isn't typically a big time scoring club. The Cowboys will play harder without Wade.
Bucko: Cowboys. I agree this is too many points.
Gopo: Cowboys. Changing this for no reason.

CARDINALS (-3.5) vs Seahawks
Andy: Cardinals #unwatchable
Figgs: Cards. Two things I hate picking, Seattle on the road and a team quarterbacked by Derek Anderson. Give me DA, I guess.
Nick: Cards. Charlie Whitehurst.
Bucko: Seahawks.
Gopo: Cardinals. Whitehurst is a below average college QB.

49ERS (-6) vs Rams
Andy: Rams. #sorrytroy
Figgs: Rams. I hate picking against Troy Smith here, but I just don't see the logic in this San Fran team being favored by this many points. ($)
Nick: Rams. The Rams should be the favorite, but I need to see them do it one more time on the road before I'm comfortable betting them.
Bucko: 49ERS. They are coming off a bye. I look for a huge game from Gore.
Gopo: Rams. 49ers are not a very good team and the Rams are starting to get themselves some momentum.

Sunday Night Football, 8:20 pm

STEELERS (-4.5) vs Patriots
Andy: Patriots #samelogicasmysaintspicktwoweeksago #steelerssuck #worstteamever #jumpinalake #haterade
Figgs: Pats. Screw Pittsburgh.
Nick: Pats. Damn them all to hell.
Bucko: Steelers. I still believe that they might be the best in the league. I'm getting sick of their winning.
Gopo: Pats. Horrible analysis by Andy - Pittsburgh is not the worst team ever and the Browns definitely aren't the best team ever. Pats own the Steelers, and though I hope the Steelers win, this is going to be a 3 point game I think.

Monday Night Football, 8:30 pm

REDSKINS (+3) vs Eagles
Andy: Eagles #betterteam
Figgs: Philly. There is a chance Washington will have a Sexy Rexy sighting, and I only have to give three? Deal. ($)
Nick: Ealges. Trap game of the week? ($)
Bucko: Eagles.
Gopo: Eagles. As much as I don't want to admit it, the Eagles with Vick look like a pretty strong offensive team. I think they run away with this one.

McCoy threw a TD pass against the steelers.

Ha, that's what I was going to say.
