Lets get ahead of ourselves

I see the Chargers and Ravens would only be getting +3 points @New England.

3.5 for both teams @KC

Very interesting year in that I can't remember four teams on a bye week hanging on by a thread so much.

Any other early lines for next week post them or input predictions and opinions on how next week home teams will do in what looks to be the least favorite group of 4 I seen it in a long time

Well one team has the best defense in football and the other was a very rare 12 win WC team. I think that easily explains it imo.

Yeah I wasn't too surprised but still interesting

3 other home teams all a td or less favs against any possible matchup

Dallas knows they can beat the Saints but I cannot imagine the Saints not being prepared this time around especially at home Saints seem to have the easiest route

I agree. If Gurley is healthy I think the Rams are still pretty tough too

Man I just cannot see it unless this has been McVeyss plan the whole time this team has no Mojo.

Gurley should be well-rested but he's going to have to survive 3 hard fought games.

Goff does not look confident to me. I will say that week off should be the best thing for all of them. Usually it takes away momentum from a hot team this time I think it does the opposite or at least it seems like it should

Coaching is huge in the playoffs

A lot of first-timers which should be very interesting

I think the Bears and the Ravens can beat anyone anywhere because of their mobile quarterbacks. Trubitsky is the best runner I've seen at the quarterback position and Lamar is the most elusive I've ever seen. They make Kordell Stewart look like Bernie Kosar

Yeah they havenít looked great but neither have the saints if we are being honest. I like that Talib is back and that offense is really hard to stop when Gurley is at full strength

The Ram's or the Saints will get knocked out before the NFC Championship. It's wide open this season every team can make a case for the trophy.

Mitch's first game back after lay off of two weeks. 3 INTs..never happen again. Arnold was handled by a rookie, named JAMES Daniels



After a slow start, Bears guard James Daniels is emerging as a top rookie lineman | NFL Analysis | Pro Football Focus

Lambs will get sheared, regardless of where or who they play./ Their home field advantage doesn't exist. If Bears there, more Bear fans than Lambs.

Pro Football focus also rates Bears #1 defense. They're just a little slower getting around to it, than me

Baltimore still #1 in total defense, #2 in scoring

Bears #3 in total defense, #1 in scoring

LOL

Do you even follow this team? It did happen again, against those Rams bobby. That wasn't the 1st time he threw 3 picks in a game in his brief 2 year career. You really are lost at times.
