WR Chris Hogan should be back for the game against the Titans, a big get for the Patriots. He opens the deep passing game, especially on play action, which Brady loves (watch for the deep posts over the middle).

4-0 on picks last week.

Falcons
Pats

Jags
Vikings

Already bet on ATL when they were 2.5 and betting on the Jags closer to the game when the line should be wider.

SATURDAY
Falcons (-3) @ Eagles (4:35, NBC) - Eagles have struggled to barely hit 215 yards of total offense, while giving up 120+ rushing yards the last 2 games. Atlanta's surprisingly very good in all facets of the game without really being 'wow' worthy. They ran for 124 against the Rams and should beat down the Eagles.
Titans @ Patriots (-13.5) (8:15, CBS) - Patriots have struggled against the pass (in part due to leading often) but are just 2nd in Rushing TD allowed. Harrison should provide a spark for their pass rush and Hogan being back adds a deep threat/depth to a still potent offense. Patriots should run away with this one.

SUNDAY
Jaguars @ Steelers (-7) (1:05, CBS) - Game 1 saw Bortles attempt just 14 passes (1 INT, 2 Sacks anyway), no way that happens again. Since Week 12, the Jaguars have allowed 108+ rushing yards except 1 game including 130 last week to Buffalo. I expect the Steelers to pound the ball, play focused defense against the run, and force Bortles to try and beat them with his arm. Yeah, Ben threw 5 picks but Antonio Brown also put up 10/157 so if the Steelers can get a ground game going, Jaguars are in for a fight.
Saints @ Vikings (-5) (4:40, FOX) - Minnesota's defense has been stifling all year, arguably more so than the Jaguars even. The 284 yards passing in Week 1? The 3rd highest total allowed all year by Minnesota. Only 5 other times did they even allow 200+ passing. Case Keenum's playing out of his mind and the running game is enough to stay credible against defenses, an area where New Orleans can be exposed defensively.

Falcons
Patriots
Steelers
Vikings

I was 1-3 last week so I expect to be awful this week too.

The last fifteen years have been a mobius strip of a nightmare for AFC Championship matchups. It's seriously been that long since the Patriots, Steelers, and Colts all failed to make it past the Divisional Round. I guess what I'm saying is that if we get Titans/Jaguars get some baskets for all the cats and dogs falling from the sky. Also, we should all kill ourselves before a Titans/Jaguars AFC Championship Game because it'd be terrible.

SATURDAY

Falcons (-3) @ Eagles (4:35, NBC) - Nick Foles factor.  There isn't much more to say than that.  The Eagles have a great team around him, so they could potentially pull this off, but I'm not backing that horse.
Titans @ Patriots (-13.5) (8:15, CBS) - The gimme of the week.  Titans have no chance.  I'd pick New England if Hoyer was starting.

SUNDAY

Jaguars @ Steelers (-7) (1:05, CBS) - I think this is the best chance of an upset.  The Steelers don't seem to be paying attention to the Jags already looking forward to next week, and they are overrated to begin with having struggled against some pretty poor teams.  They also haven't faced a defense like the Jags since the last time they faced the Jags and got slaughtered.  Their best offensive player isn't healthy and their best defensive player has a broken neck.  I hate backing Bortles, but he probably won't be as terrible as he was last week.
Saints @ Vikings (-5) (4:40, FOX) - The most interesting game this week by a mile.  The Vikings are at home, and with all due respect to the Jags, have the best defense and probably the best all around team in football.  The Saints might give them a scare late, but it won't be enough.

Foles can't win this game.

I guess Wentz played special teams and defense too since they've all lost it.

Eagles wasting that TO earlier could bite them, but what the fuck was that shovel pass bullshit?

That was an awful red zone sequence.

Hats off to Foles for doing enough and not screwing up.  LOL to Atlanta for recovering two fumbles and getting a kick out of bounds and doing dick with it all.

That reviewed White TD was down before the goal line.

PK is right though, the Tits are just crapping all over themselves. Mariota's gonna have to go Super Polynesian to pull this off.

No amount of calls going against you excuses letting the 5th string RB walk in for a TD untouched.

Also, Romo has been a joy yet again.  It sounds like Nantz is ready to call it a night and beat traffic.

Jacksonville desperately needs a QB.  No confidence in Bortles to even kill time.  If Jacksonville hangs on they'll basically need their defense to completely carry them.

That 14 point lead is going to be tough for them to come back from.

Also, I swear Fournette is the fucking oldest looking 22 year old this side of Greg Oden.

Onside kicking that is DUMB.  Pitt basically has three timeouts with the 2 minute warning, so just kick it deep and trust your defense.

EDIT: And that's why it's dumb.

That was a baffling last drive.  Brown doesn't go OOB, Ben with the stupid grounding penalty, not kicking the FG to save at least a little time for one more onsides.  Its like the Steelers had no plan.

The Steelers will be the most interesting team to follow this offseason.

I can't wait to see Bortles get mindfucked by New England next week. I'm sick of people falling upward.

New Orleans is in trouble, down two scores already in the first quarter, but they just forced a three and out. This could still end up being the game of the week that I expected!
