Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins (-2.5)

This will be a fiery battle between two strong defenses, although neither showed it a week ago. The Dolphins have a lot of issues to sort out on both sides of the football, and the Bills will be fired up after a loss to the Pats last week. Tyrod Taylor keeps making plays and the Bills pickup a huge division win.

Pick: Buffalo 23, Miami 20

San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals (-6.5)

The Cardinals look like a complete team and own a two-game lead over the Seahawks. At home against a weaker 49ers team, Carson Palmer will go 9-0 in games he’s finished in the past two seasons. Don’t sleep on the Cards.

Pick: Arizona 28, San Francisco 13

Chicago Bears at Seattle Seahawks (-16)

When you’re 0-2, the last thing you want to do is travel to a Seattle team in desperate need of a win. The Bears will be without Jay Cutler who didn’t put a foot wrong last week until his pick-six which also injured him. There’s only one winner in this one.

Pick: Seattle 35, Chicago 9

Denver Broncos at Detroit Lions (NO LINE)

With the exception of the first half in San Diego, the Lions offense has been a mess. Their defense hasn’t been able to help out sans Ndamukong Suh and with injuries to DeAndre Levy and Haloti Ngata, although Ngata did suit up. Denver’s offense hasn’t been much better, but the team has found a way to win two tough games on the back of a dominant defense. This trend will continue and the Broncos will win an ugly one.

Pick: Denver 20, Detroit 14

Kansas City Chiefs at Green Bay Packers (-7.5)

The Chiefs will be rested and still red hot after fumbling away a strong position against the Broncos. They bring a strong defense and elite running back to Lambeau Field, but the Packers just dispatched another team who can boast the same. Kansas City could actually be a tougher test for Green Bay than Seattle was, but nobody beats Aaron Rodgers at home.

Pick: Green Bay 28, Kansas City 20

Last week: 7-9
Season: 17-15
