"and most importantly Against The Spread by 8 or more points."
It will be 'more' . I think 14.

The Under Dogs are on a roll... 4-0 Against The Spread and 2-2 in the games
Will it continue?
Will history repeat itself?

Steelers favored by 7.5 vs Jaguars and the over/under 41 pts
The last time Jacksonville was in the playoffs they beat Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh.

Minnesota favored by 3.5 pts vs Saints over/under 45
The last time the Saints faced the Vikings in the playoffs they won 31-28 (OT) and went on to win the Super Bowl.

Atlanta favored by 2.5 pts at Philadelphia over/under 42

New England 13.5 pts over Tennessee over/under 47

I will take the Steelers over Jacksonville. The jaguars have a great defense they just don’t have the offense to go with it IMO.
Vikings and Saints should be a good game. I would like to see either one go all the way.

Vikings 24
Saints 20

Pat Shurmur, Vikings Offensive Coordinator completed 1st round of 4 head coaching interviews this weekend with
Arizona, Chicago, Detroit and NY Giants. All of the interviews took place in Minnesota.
Rumor is IF he gets hired by Arizona (a team in need of a QB) free agent Case Keenum will follow him there.
Kind of a bad time to have that type of distraction going on.

If Keenum doesn't get franchise tagged...

Yup, Vikings can't afford to lose Keenum and hopefully keep Shurmur too.
But they really need to focus this week, even though they beat the Saints to start the season... 29-19

Saints Kicker (Lutz) can nail field goals from 57 yards.

I can't see either the Eagles or Jaguars winning this weekend. I don't think the Steelers will beat the Patriots, but they should do well this weekend. Depends on which Blake Bortles shows up this weekend. I think that the Saints will take the Vikings, but I'd really like to see the Vikings get to the Super Bowl. I think New England will roll over the Titans, but heck, you never, ever know. It would be interesting to see them vs. the Vikings in the Super Bowl.

Forgot that the eagles are without their starting qb, have to take the falcons in that game, still think the best game this weekend will be the saints and Vikings.

Dallas is Mexico's team. If you don't believe me drive around where I live and you'll notice pretty quickly that it isn't the Gringos that wear blue and silver!
