ORIGINAL SURVIVOR POOL. Give props to these fantastic four. Two picks for cheating deflators (Jags have never ever won in Gillette Stadium) and two picks for the Seahawks. We will either wash out or have a week four. If we wash out then these four will continue. See, survivor pool rules. 2015, 2B.1(iv)(c-d).

Mad-dog corner: Doggy had a tough week last week, going 0-3. He tries to bounce back this week with these picks: Indy -3 in a short week, over Tennessee. Eagles even over the Jets in New Jersey. Broncos -3 over Lions.
Denver at Detroit. Sunday night. The visiting Broncos have ten days rest, are playing at night, in-doors, against a mediocre Lions team. Maybe the Broncos have issues on offense. But they will be ready. Give the 3, take the Broncos who go to 3-0. Over 44.5.
Raiders + 3.5 at Cleveland. Weird things occurring at the mistake by the lake. Meanwhile, the Raiders who were 0-8 on the road last year, have an above average offense. They can hang with the Browns, who have an emerging QB controversy. Take the team on the rise. Take the over 41.5. WIN (Raiders) and WIN (over total was 47).
Cardinals -6 1/2 at home over 49'ers. This is a trap game. The 49'ers were never in the game last week, and our theory about teams regressing to the norm would have the high flying Cardinals coming down to earth a bit, and the 49'ers bouncing back. But theories are for chumps. This Cardinals team was doing something special last year until Carson Palmer went down, followed by every other back-up QB they brought in. The Cardinals are superbly coached by Bruce Arians, and WR Larry Fitzgerald made us a ton of money last week in our Draft Kings games. Take the over 44.5.
Bills + 3 1/2 over the Fins. Another Bounce back game for one of these two teams. Instincts tell us the Fins come back, but we just don't like Miami's coaching. Plus theior players stink. The Bills are starting a rookie QB on the road for his first road game. You can easily make a case for the Fins. But we like the Bills defense and at the moment the Bills QB. If the Fins lose this one, the wheels come off the bus and it will be a long season. Also take the over 41.5.
Jets vs Eagles. When you're wrong, you're wrong. Un-like certain individuals who wear robes, we admit it on the rare occasion when we make a mistake. The J..E..T…S are for real. Superbly coached (as opposed to the Dolphins). As good a D as there is in NFL. And a passable Offense circa Ravens 2000. This team will complete. Under 46.5 today. And just for fun we have the Jets in a few multi-team parlays. This is a classic bounce back game for Eagles. And like the Fins, if they fail today, the wheels come off the bus for the season. So don't put any big money on the game. WIN (under total was 41).
