I've been talking a lot about how amazing Adrian Peterson's comeback has been this year, because it is. At the same time, I nearly forgot that Kansas City's Jamaal Charles is also coming off major knee surgery and is currently 9th in the NFL with 734 yards, including a 233 yard game in week three. That's incredibly impressive stuff. But will Charles find big success and help the Chiefs get their second win this week? He might do his part, but I think the Bengals will cover on the road.
I'm picking three road favorites, with Baltimore and New Orleans along with Cincy. I also think the Falcons bounce back in a big way after getting beat for the first time last week by the Saints. Being at home agains the Cardinals is a perfect way to get over that loss.
I was 5-3 last week, making me 19-11 since I started picking against the spread, and I'm feeling really confident in these eight picks.
