What a disastrous week. After going 10-6 and stirring hope I could wind up somewhere near .500 with a strong finish, I went 4-11-1 to ensure this will be a horrible year. Moreover, the games I won (Steelers-Broncos, Giants-Panthers, Texans-Colts and Patriots-Titans) could all easily have gone the other way. And the push (Jets-Cowboys) was one where my side (the Jets) was clearly the wrong one.
On the other hand, I went 2-1-1 on the four games I liked and 0-4 on coin flips. But that's about as much as I can spin a terrible week.
This week, I especially like the Falcons, Texans and Jaguars. Coin flips are Bengals-Broncos, Redskins-Eagles, Cowboys-Bills, Packers-Cardinals and Bears-Buccaneers.
