If it weren't for a lack of intestinal fortitude by AJ Bouye not diving into the endzone, we would have been undefeated AGAIN last week, but sometimes thats just the way the ball rolls. Alas, we still sit 4-1-1 for the last two weeks, and my heater's end is nowhere in sight. I'm so confident, everybody's getting a bonus pick this week. What do you say, LETS MAKE SOME MONAYYY!
Detroit -3 @ Chicago
Matt Stafford has been on an absolute roll as of late. His running game has finnaly shown up for him, and it seems as though the more responsibility he's being given as far as running the offense, the more he excels. Their defense still needs some work, as it gave up 24 points at home to the browns last week, but Trubisky and Co. are still working out all the kinks. Lions grind out a late road victory.
Kansas City -10.5 @ NY Giants
10.5 points on the road is quite a point to consider, but the fact is that one of the most explosive offenses in the league is coming in to face a New York Giants squad that has lost it's competitive libido. They've given up on their coach, their best player is out for the year, and the fans just don't care anymore. The Chiefs are coming off a bye, and that's bad news for Ben McAdoo, and may result in his last game as coach. Chiefs by a lot.
Jacksonville -7.5 @ Cleveland
Even though they burned me and the rest of Meatball Nation last week, they're playing the Cleveland Steamers this week and I gotta say, I'm still fully hitched to the Bortle Bandwagon. Deshone Kizer's gonna be the mayor of Pick City, and this will be Leonard Fournette's comeback week. Jags by 13.
Philadelphia -3.5 @ Dallas

Now that Ezekiel Elliot is officially serving his 6-week suspension, this ones a no-brainer. We've seen that Prescott, at this point in his career, needs a strong running game behind him to be really effective, and Carson Wentz is putting together a strong case for the MVP this season. Dallas can't hide behind the Jerry-world sun glare this week, and America's team is getting boat raced by America's most successful redhead.
Just realized I picked all road favorites. Oh well, you can still take it to the bank.
But if you do, let us help you lose money.
