Stick with Vick again

   NFL games ending Monday, Nov. 4

   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.

   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.

   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.

   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 easy. RAMS.

   Seahawks 13, Redskins 7: Not much offense here, and that’s what Seattle likes. Seahawks at -2½ 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
