We shared our early Sunday game picks, with the Cardinals being the only underdog we picked. There are only two late games and then the Sunday night game on NBC. Here is what we say about them and the lines that Vegas has set for them.
New York Jets at New England Patriots (-11): The Pats responded to a loss to the Cardinals by putting up over 50 points against the Bills. Now they play the Jets. Poor Jets. Tom Brady is mad. Tom Brady scores points when he is mad. Pick: Pats, -11.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Oakland Raiders (-6): This is a game that I would not place a single dollar on. Neither team is consistent enough to make you feel good about it. However, for my purposes here, take the Raiders and give up the six points.
Pittsburgh Steelers (-1) at Cincinnati Bengals: The Browns put a beating on the Bengals, causing Andy Dalton to turn the ball over. They will be focused for this game and the Steelers don't have a running game, but Pittsburgh isn't going to lose this game. Pick: Steelers, -1.
