Monday Night Football Point Spread

Jaguars (+6) at Jets: I don’t care who is playing QB for the Jets this week. It could be Fitz, Geno, Petty, Flynn, or Brett Favre…the Jags can put up points and will keep it close. This could be a game full of turnovers and mistakes. The fall of the Jets will continue. Upset alert Fireman Ed!!
Saints (-8) vs Titans: 7 TD passes last week for Drew Brees!! The Saints also gave up 49 points, but that was against the Giants offense which can be explosive at times. This week vs Tennessee will be a different story, they don’t have much offense and a middle of the road defense. I can see Brees lighting it up at home again but less of a shootout on the other side of the ball.
Giants (-2.5) at Buccaneers: 6 TD passes for Eli Manning last week, but not good enough for a win because of some of the worst defense (if you can call that defense) I’ve ever seen. Look for the offense to continue to build on that breakout, and the defense HAS to be better. With Prince and JPP possibly back, they should be a boost, well at least Prince…No one knows what JPP will look like in his return. Bucs upset the Falcons last week, but I expect the Giants to come out swinging.
Falcons (-7) at 49ers: I really don’t like 7 point road favorites going to the west coast, but the 49ers are a mess. Benching Kaepernick for Gabbert, trading away Vernon Davis, and a coach that isn’t going to be around very long. The Falcons rallied back last week, but came up short in OT. They should be able to score at ease against the 49ers, so I can see them squeaking out a cover.
Chargers (-4) vs Bears: Both teams had significant injuries last week. Ladarius Green and Keenan Allen for the Chargers and Matt Forte for the Bears. The Chargers desperately need a win and still have a ton of talent. The Bears on the other hand should be packing it in for next year. They have flashes of good play, but not sustained.
Oakland (+4) at Pittsburgh: Oakland has played enough games and won that i can’t seem to find a reason to go against them when facing an ailing Steelers team. They will try to pass (after Raiders stuff the box) and fail to do so thanks to Woodson.
Miami (+3) at Buffalo: Buffalo is confused and can’t seem to play right (hurt players don’t help the cause either). I like the chances of Miami getting hot after a few shaky weeks.
Carolina (+2.5) vs. Green Bay: I know the Panthers are hot, and going against the Packers will truly put the whole team to the test. I believe that the defense will keep it close and Cam will show up at the end of the 4th with a close win!
Tampa Bay (+2.5) vs. NY Giants: *UPSET ALERT* Honestly… I don’t know why, just to go against the grain here….
Dallas (+2.5) vs. Philadelphia: With my final pick, i’ll have to show that underdogs can make it happen! Dallas are getting healthier and Philly is still squirming to understand what system will work…. So i’ll take healthy over confused any day.
Cleveland (+11) vs Cincinnati: There should be no reason why I pick the Browns. As bad as they are coached under Mike Pettine and DC Jim O’Neil, that’s how good Marvin Lewis and QB Andy Dalton are for the Bengals. With that said, it is a divisional game and perhaps Cleveland will do something tonight to show me they have any fight in them whatsoever.
Philadelphia (-2.5) vs Dallas: This is a game that features two teams working through issues. With that said, they are both still within striking distance of 1st and have no love lost for each other. Despite this being down in Texas, Dallas has not won a game since Tony Romo has been sidelined and this doesn’t appear to be the week they do so either.
NY Giants (-2.5) vs Tampa Bay: This is a game in which the Giants get Jason Pierre Paul back and possibly Prince Amukamara. This by no means will be an easy matchup for the Giants as Tampa has proven they can run the ball in conjunction with Jameis Winston putting together drives as a rookie QB. For no reason but perhaps a naive gamble (especially after last week in New Orleans), I expect the Giants defense to bounce back this week and find ways to confuse Winston and force turnovers to win by 3.
Washington (+14) vs New England: Washington has not faired well against New England in the past and this Redskins team isn’t one that will go toe to toe with the Patriots in any capacity. But with a rested team coming off the bye and with New England due for at least a partial in-game let down, I look for Washington to cover the 2 TD spread.
Green Bay (-2.5) at Carolina: The Packers were rattled by the Broncos’ defense last week and don’t have an easy task going up against Carolina in another game against an undefeated team. This will be a slug fest of two teams that may see each other in the playoffs and a battle which Green Bay may have the mid season advantage at the moment. I’m looking forward to the match ups of Luke Kuechly going after Aaron Rodgers, & Cam Newton escaping Clay Matthews (although working through injuries).
