Can't believe there are only two weeks left. I have barely kept my head above water all season. I both despair for the end of the season when there will be no more football to watch. And rejoice at not having to come up with reasons to pick games for this column.
home team in bold
Best BetIndianapolis Colts (-3.0) over Oakland Raiders
I can't see Peyton Manning giving up his tenuous hold on the division lead after last week's win over the Jaguars. Collie or no Collie.
OthersBaltimore Ravens (-3.5) over Cleveland Browns
I'm rooting for the Browns. The only reason this isn't my best bet. I just don't see it.
Dallas Cowboys (-6.5) over Arizona Cardinals
Garrett has given the Cowboys a reason to play. Home, away, Derek Anderson, Max Hall, John Skelton.... Doesn't matter. The Cardinals are just awful.
Last WeekTampa Bay Buccaneers (-5.5) over Detriot Lions LOSS
Cincinnati Bengals (-1.5) over Cleveland Browns WIN
Oakland Raiders (-6.5) over Denver Broncos WIN
