This week we have four unanimous picks, the Lions, Redskins, Bengals and Broncos. Last week, we won with the Redskins, Broncos, Bengals and Rams, but pushed with the Lions and lost with the Jaguars, bringing our record to 21-11-1 on unanimous picks. We also went 8-6-2 on majority picks (three or more writers) to go 106-98-4 on the year. We were 26-21-1 on unanimous picks and 132-115-9 on majority picks in 2018.
|Erickson||The Titans are a better team than the Texans now and deserve more than the standard three points. I also really like the Seahawks, Saints and Niners. I'm in full McSquareickson mode.|
|Pianowski||When in doubt, walk the earth with the 2019 Dolphins. Brian Flores has them playing hard, and they can move the ball against almost anyone. I'm on a lot of ugly dogs this week, as a slew of favorites are getting line respect for all sorts of curious reasons. So what, it's the last game in Oakland? That team hasn't had a pulse for almost a month.|
|Liss||I just don't see the Rams getting knocked out of the playoffs by the Cowboys, who still have a safety net when they play the Eagles next week. I also like the Redskins, and the more I think about it, the Seahawks.|
|Payne||Seems like a good week to take the dogs, generally speaking. It'll be hilarious if we see another Cowboys loss this week.|
|Del Don||I switched off my 49ers, expecting a letdown game while dealing with a bunch of injuries, and I debated Arizona with Pittsburgh as my best bet. I absolutely loved the Rams when they somehow opened +4, but that line has predictably moved a ton.|
