Nothing too special here. A few coin flips (CLE v ATL, CIN v HOU) that I'm giving HF advantage on.

Some I'm kind of wary of. After watching TEN give PIT a hell of a MNF game, and seeing PHI put up a complete stinker, I'm not super confident that PHI is a sure bet. Similarly, SEA's center is down, so that game could go either way depending on how they're able to put together their O-line for the game.

I picked STL over SD for my 'upset', but really SD has played badly after the first few games, and STL has given good teams fits for the entire year, so I think that's one to keep an eye on.

MIA could possibly upset Denver, as Denver is really banged up at the moment. Still picking DEN because that home field advantage is unique, but anything's possible there. I look forward to NE exposing DET as a bunch of frauds, as they've looked like complete garbage in the few games I've seen of them this year.

The BAL v NO game is a head-scratcher. A month ago I would have picked NO in my sleep, but they're just no longer predictable (iffy road and god-tier home team).

Bah.

Oakland just fired Dennis Allen, so I'm expecting a burst from the Raiders, but their still the Raiders. I can't pick them to win until they actually win, even though they are at home. So I will take the Chiefs, who are playing well at the right time and still have a shot at the division crown. I wouldn't be surprised if this is the one game the Raiders get though.

They fired him a month ago. So if they were due for  a burst, should have happened already.

Really? A guy at the gym made it sound like it just happened. I normally check official sources before taking the word of someone I don't know, but he claimed to be a Raider fan.

Also, "they're" instead of "their" in my original post.
