Â Â NFL games ending Monday, Nov. 4
Â Â Bills 24, Patriots 23: Who would have thought when Bledsoe was traded to Buffalo that he would be in position to hurt them. Funny game. Bills high-powered offense could be short-circuited. However, there will be motivation to trip up Pats. Buffalo at -3 wins game, but not money. PATRIOTS.
Bucs 16, Vikings 13: The Bucs
offense has trouble scoring 16 in a game. Vikings could be getting back into the
swing. Good place to keep it going. Bucs favored by 7. Looks like a mountain. VIKINGS.
Falcons 20, Ravens 10: Talk
about non-existent offense. Ravens O is ghostly. Falcons making serious threat
about making playoffs. Michael Vick a threat to score any time he handles the
ball. Atlanta at -4 looks good. FALCONS.
Â Â Eagles 24, Bears 13: The Chicago offense has disappeared along with my money. Luck of 01 has gone by the boards. Eagles come off Monday nighter. No problem here at -5. EAGLES.
Steelers 24, Browns 16:
Cleveland will have a different defense to deal with this week, not the porous
Jets. New York made QB Tim Couch look like Johnny Unitas. Not this week.
Steelers at -3 behind Tommy Maddox has a different look than with Kordell
Stewart at the controls. STEELERS.
Â Â Lions 20, Cowboys 16: The Lions making noise like they are going to win a few games this season. Cowboys keep changing QBs doesn’t help their offense. Dead even matchup. LIONS.
Bengals 16, Texans 13: Houston
is favored for the first time this season. Cincinnati watched first possible
victory go down the drain against Tennessee. Bengals at +3 make amends. BENGALS.
Titans at Colts: Old Houston vs. old Baltimore. Both bad. No line or opinion.
Chargers 31, Jets 20: San Diego
at -7 comes away with a victory unless there is a complete breakdown in every
phase. Jets offensive coordinator has a game plan suited for the 1960s. Plays
for field goals against of touchdowns. CHARGERS.
Â Â 49ers 31, Raiders 29: The Raiders juggernaut has hit a wall. Niners at -3 haven’t looked that great, but expect lots of scoring. 49ERS / OVER.
Rams 31, Cards 16: Make no
mistake, Rams will make the playoffs. Cardinals run is over. At -5, this is
Seahawks 13, Redskins 7: Not
much offense here, and that’s what Seattle likes. Seahawks at -2Â½ will win
out. Good time to beat up on the Redskins. SEAHAWKS.
Giants 20, Jaguars 13:
Jacksonville reverting to their preseason prediction. Giants are better than
they have shown. Time to put up or pack it in. At -3, Giants have right opponent
to start winning streak. GIANTS.
Dolphins 24, Packers 20: Miami
set to get back into the swing, but minus QB Jay Fiedler. Backup Ray Lucas is
capable, though he failed in last outing. Will make amends. Warm-blooded
Dolphins at +6 will win one in Ice Bowl country. DOLPHINS.
LAST WEEK 7-6
