Another 2-1 week last week puts me at 22-20 overall on the season.
Buffalo +7.5 over New England
The Patriots have yet to win a true road game all season, so I'll take the divisional dog to cover. Buffalo's played more spirited ball recently. If the Bills were to win, it would have huge implications on the Jets' divisional chances, as a Patriots loss and a Jets win would tie the two teams in first.
Patriots 20, Bills 14
Detroit +15 over Arizona
I know the Lions are terrible, but the Cardinals are an enigma, and Larry Fitzgerald's status is up in the air. I can't pass up a 15 point home underdog. Arizona isn't that good.
Cardinals 31, Lions 20
Seattle -7 over Tampa Bay
The Seahawks have a weak offensive line and a mediocre secondary, so good teams destroy them, but they're good enough to beat up bad teams. Tampa Bay is a bad team, and Seattle is tough at Qwest Field. Jim Mora Jr is trying to save his job; the Seahawks win this one big.
Seahawks 28, Bucs 14
Jets' Playoff implications
Jacksonville lost Thursday, so the Jets are now tied with Baltimore and Miami for the last playoff spot. New York needs to win out and hope both of those two teams at some point.
Miami is a 4.5 point underdog in Tennessee.
Baltimore is an 11 point favorite against Chicago at home.
Root for the Titans and Bears. And also root for the Bills to bring the divisional race back into the picture. But first and foremost, root for the Jets, because if they lose, none of this matters.
