|Good info Hugh... Miami offers some value to keep it within 7.5, but will have a tough go against a stout Vikings run D. Henne will have to be better this week.

Dallas 9.5 is shocking really, however, Cowboys are a public team and will still take a lot of action. If Cutler can limit turnovers, they can stay in this game.
My keys for the week... I know they're square, but...
I don't see this line as a knee-jerk reaction. Much like last week, this match-up comes down to the New England offense vs. the Jets defense. No Kris Jenkins in the middle will alleviate some pressure upfront, and the weak side corner and DB (Cromartie & rookie, Kyle Wilson) had all kinds of problems in man coverage last week and now see a savvy Tom Brady and co. coming to town. Shon Greene looked awful last week, and Sanchez, well, is about as good as a tackling dummy. The Jets will have to score points to stay in this one, and I have ZERO confidence in them to do that. Patriots have won 8 of their last 9 at the Meadowlands, short week for the Jets, looks like the hard knocks will continue for the Jets.
I really expected this line to be around 7.5?! (trap?) Why is the public so in love with the 49ers? Their so-called vaunted defense gave up 31 points to the hapless Seahawks, while Frank Gore managed just 2.2 yards per carry on 17 touches. Something is certainly a miss! Saints will score their points, and I expect them to stack the box on defense to take away Gore, forcing Alex Smith to try and keep this close in the air. SF has to show me something to earn my wagering respect.
