LW 2-2 minus 0.2 stars  Season 9-7 +0.1 stars

Den+7 at NE

NE has handled Denver easily the last couple years, but Manning and the Broncs have shown me enough this year to think that this spread is a little out of line.  I'm looking for a classic battle here with a FG to win at the end.  I'll take the pts.

Den+7 at NE  one star

Car-3 vs. Sea

Panthers off a really tough road loss to Atlanta in a game they should have won.  Sea Hawks off a loss in St.L, travel to Carolina for a consecutive road game.   Seattle with much the better defense,  being second in the league in pts. allowed, but a rookie QB who is taking his lumps.  Panthers with the better offense finally got a running game going LW involving RBs in addition to Cam Newton.  I'm takin' Cam over rookie Wilson in this one and hope the Carolina D can hold Marshawn Lynch.

Car-3 vs. Sea   one star  

SF-9 vs. Buf

Not a good matchup for Buffalo to begin with and with the injuries to the off. line it is difficult to see them staying with a tough Niners team here.  SF torched the Jets LW on the road, but Harbaugh pretty good at keeping his guys on an even keel.   Not an easy way to make a living, laying 9, but here goes.

SF-9 vs. Buf   two stars

Jets+9 vs. Hst

OK.  We've all seen similar situations to this one dozens of times.  A team is seriously under performing, has a QB who is playing like crap and both are under the scrutiny of a merciless press.  In this case, the Jets just lost their last game at home, 34-0, albeit to SF,  and are facing possibly the best team in the conference.  I have taken the favorite in games like this  more times than I care to remember and I don't think I have ever cashed the ticket.  This is Mon Nite Football; the Jets are at home and, while they have lost their best CB and WR, are still comprised of professional football players who have, presumably, at least some pride.  Sometimes you just have to grow up and be a real NFL handicapper..or maybe just a complete idiot.  I will take the Jets.

Jets+9 vs. Hst  two stars
