There are a few gut check games this week for teams across the NFL. The biggest: Andrew Luck heading to Foxboro to take on the Patriots. At 6-3, the Colts are in much better shape than anyone could have predicted and are currently riding a four-game winning streak. Do we think the Colts will win on Sunday? No, but we do recommend taking them +9.
Another game we’ll be keeping our eye on is the Cardinals-Falcons game in Atlanta. After suffering their first loss of the season, Matt Ryan and the Falcons will be taking on a reeling, desperate Cardinals team. While we might not go out and say the Cardinals have a chance to win, the 9.5 point spread sure is tempting. Look for the Cardinals defense to keep this one closer than expected.
Does anyone outside of Buffalo care about tonight’s game? Probably not, but take the Bills -2.5. If Buffalo blows it, count on some good drunk videos tomorrow. When the lights get turned on at Ralph Wilson Stadium, Bills fans start acting stranger than usual.
