Let’s get right to the action. And, talk about inflated spreads! Looks like a dog week.

Giants +7½ at Cowboys: The G-men are now 8-1 on the road and have no fear of Dallas, despite losing twice in the regular season. Why should they? The Cowboys are hurting with a less than 100 percent T.O and Romo. GIANTS.

Seahawks +7½ at Packers: No strangers here. Holmgren and Hasselbeck know Green Bay well. A big deal will be made about Favre, but the key is whether Ryan Grant outgains Shaun Alexander. We say Grant does. SEAHAWKS.

Jags +13½ at Pats: Jacksonville can win this game, but that means controlling the ball for 40 of the 60 minutes. The oddsmakers still love the Patriots, so we’ll take advantage of the generosity. JAGUARS.

Chargers +8½ at Colts: It seems San Diego’s 23-21 win over Indy earlier this year means nothing. The key matchup is Philip Rivers vs Peyton Manning. The Colts are rested and may have the services of WR Marvin Harrison. These are proud defending Super Bowl champs, who are not ready to lose. This is the one favorite we think will cover. COLTS.
