This first game is the hardest as both teams have two teams who could show up. On paper Jax should win this by 2 TD's but they lost their last two important games and Buffalo has held 4 of their last 6 opponents to under 16 points. It's hard to win by over 9 points if that Defense shows up against them and with only a big running game going against a team pumped up and who has been hot defensively.

That being said, I still have to go with my gut and pick Jacksonville and stop overthinking it.

OK, since I may be at the Stock show again today I will just pick New Orleans as my last pick now so I don't miss it.

Tennessee Titans +8,
Running out to the Air Force game, and will decide/post other games later.

Congrats on the big week, Cellar Master!
Know how you feel ScienceChic, I had 2 back-to-back weeks of bad picks and hoping you rebound this week.

Have fun all.

2nd pick: LA Rams -5
but my heart is with my home team, Atlanta, but I like the youth and energy of the Rams!
And now I know who I'm competing against, Cellar Master. Yes, congrats on the opening and can't wait to make it over there!

I'm glad the Falcons continue in the playoffs. My final two picks:
Tough game to pick but I'm leaning towards Jacksonville -8.5
New Orleans Saints -6

I knew I should have stuck with Buffalo. I predicted exactly what happened. Would have been within 2 games. But still 5 of us within 3 games should make for an interesting ending to the year. But only 7 games left so it will pretty much take a miracle at this point!
