I am one of 10 people still alive in a 100 or so pool.

I have used, The Ravens, Colts, Saints, Pats, Titans, Cardinals and Packers.

Realistically, I am looking hard at KC, Dallas and the Rams ( can't believe I am even saying the rams with a straight face )

KC seems like the obvious choice but the way Buffalo has been scoring, it scares the hell out of me.

With Romo under centre, I think Dallas would be my play, and although I think Kitna is a better than average back-up, he even admitted only about 80% of the playbook will be available.

The rams have been playing great at home and this is more of a play against the Panthers. But with Steven Jackson's finger a big question mark, who knows what's going to happen.

Now I know why they call it suicide, because I am bouncing back and fourth so much I want to commit suicide.

Anyone help?

I am in same situation, I ended up rolling on the JETS.  Coming off a bye playing at home with healthy defence.  I think they roll but Damn its hard to pull the trigger

I can't bet against the Packers. Too much talent on that team. I know they are banged up and the Jets are healthy, but if Rodgers can get a little blocking, he should be able to make some big plays down field.

I used them last week.  Glad too because the Buf/KC game scares me a bit.  I don't like the situation with Buf 0-6 and the Chiefs in 1st place.  BOL, but I'm concerned about an upset here.

Plus, KC is a solid team this year but they have no business laying 9 pts against anyone (even Buffalo).  Its now 7.5 but still too many.  I'm a Chiefs fan and hope they pull out the win but I'm pretty sure they won't cover.

Must be a big boat, because I am in it also......I have it down to Dallas and St. Louis. 

Kitna did play well in the 2nd half in last weeks game, but can he keep it going? Will dallas rely on thier running game? Dallas is a ship that is sinking but will Kitna go down with them this week?

St. Louis's defence has been playing well, along with thier "O"....and Carolina is terriable. 

Good Luck on Whatever you do......I am going with the Rams (I can't believe $4000.00 will be riding on the Rams!!

Happy Halloween!!!

The thing I like about Dallas...is that they are playing an awful Jax D....and what better way to get the kinks out; get used to the playbook for a back up than playing one of the bottom 3 Ds in the league?

Been struggling with the same exact thing. I was leaning KC but you have to figure Buffalo's going to win sometime and that game scares me to death. I think I'm going Dallas. Jax sucks even with Garrard and I just can't see Dallas going 0-4 at home. Toughest week to call, by far.

I can see JAK winning str8 up here as well.    Gerrard a much better qb here, and dallas moral so low, that they probably have given up the season.

Well, went with the god damn Cowgirls and got burnt.  2nd choice would have been Jets though so would have lost that one anyway.  I couldn't take KC, but all those that did got really lucky.  Bills kicked a 53 yarder that was good and was negated by a timeout (2nd chance missed).

I'm not sure I could have pulled the trigger but Detroit was someone I was considering also.  That was the play.

I played the odds and took the biggest fav ( KC -7 )

Luckily the kick in ot. I feel like I may have had an argument if they would have tied.

Meh... moving on.......

Anything sticking out for next week?

Keep in mind that Dallas has a serious "let down" in my opinion, and they also played on monday night. I've never bet anyone on sunday that played the previous monday. Also Dallas opened at 71/2 and was 61/2 within a few hours. I lean torwards the JETS to roll. Good luck, Keith
