The Game Picking Ass Kicking Philadelphia Phenomenon - Week 7

New, comments
Who's the Boss? took place in Fairfield, CT
I'm riding a hot hand fresh off my first winning week of the season. I skyrocketed up 4 places and now sit tied for 8th in the SBN bloggers pick'em challenge, but I'm only 5 games off the lead...

With some cash in hand after last week's winner, I'm letting it ride with my week 7 picks!

Home teams are in CAPS and my picks are in bold

Tennessee -1.5 v HOUSTON - Vince Young practiced some this week, but didn't take any first team snaps. If he doesn't play, this is the easiest lock you'll ever get. If he does... who knows?
DETROIT -2.0 v Tampa Bay - I think this could be the week the wheels come off for Tampa. This line is low in my opinion.
New England -16.5 v MIAMI - Sure, 16.5 is a ridiculous line... but I've stopped picking against the Pats.
NEW ORLEANS 9.0 v Atlanta - This is a tough pick because the line is no high, but with NO showing signs of life and Atlanta not I'm "geauxing" with the Saints.
NEW YORK (NYG) -9.0 v San Francisco - I'm kinda playing a hunch on this one simply because I think 9 points is too high. I could see San Fran scoring late to cover and making this game look closer than it actually was.
Baltimore -3.0 v BUFFALO - I think the Ravens are grossly overrated this year, but my question with this game is will Buffalo even score?
WASHINGTON -8.5 v Arizona - One minute Kurt Warner won't play, the next maybe he will. I'm going to guess that he won't and Arizona should have no shot with Tim Rattay or Tim Hasselbeck. Should Warner be healthy, I'd consider picking the Cardinals to cover here.
OAKLAND -2.5 v Kansas City - This line says to just pick the winner. That's the Raiders at home.
CINCINNATI -6.5 v New York (NYJ) - Cincy can score, the Jets can't.
PHILADELPHIA -5.5 v Chicago - This line has risen a point this week which I find somewhat odd. I thought 4.5 was reasonable. Still, I've liked the Eagles to win this one by a TD at home all along.
SEATTLE -8.5 v St. Louis - Seattle has been incredibly inconsistent this year, but the Rams have been a cure for opposing teams' inconsistency all year.
DALLAS -9.5 v Minnesota - I think this line is a huge slight to a Vikings team that's playing very well right now. I'm not sure that they'll beat Dallas, but they'll cover.
Pittsburgh -3.5 v DENVER - I think the Steelers are good that's really being overlooked this year thanks to the likes of the Pats and Colts.
Indianapolis -3.0 v JACKSONVILLE - This should be the game of the week and Jacksonville has a chance to put themselves among the top 5 teams in football with a win here. That said, they won't.
