Hey, no more bye weeks! That means sixteen games every week for the rest of the season. There's also three games on Thanksgiving day so you can completely ignore your relatives, well, the ones who aren't into football anyway. And those three Turkey Day games are all pretty good. Houston at Detroit gets things going, followed by Washington in Dallas and then the Patriots travel to take on the Jets.
So thanks to those pesky hooks, I missed a couple games last week by .5 points. Where the hell were all those half point plays when I needed them? There are a couple surprising lines this week, i.e., the Falcons are only a one point favorite at Tampa Bay. Is Vegas starting to doubt them even though they're 9-1? Seems like it. I also don't understand the Cardinals being favored ever again, but they do play the Rams in Arizona. Still, I wouldn't trust the Cards to do anything. Good luck this week.
As always, lines are from MGM-Mirage as seen on Vegas.com unless noted.
