Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans — 8:25 p.m.
Andrew – Indianapolis. While Houston has managed to win against some of the… well…. less adequate… teams, I don’t see them being able to take down some of the league’s more elite teams. I imagine it’ll be close, but I think the Colts can steal one on the road here.
Greg – Houston. I like the way the Texans play at home, so I’ll go with them. I think deep down both of these teams know that they aren’t very good, but they will at least make for a semi interesting game tonight.
Genesis – Colts. When you really break it down, a texan is just nothing without a horse to ride. Colts are an essential part to the image of texan, so without a colt, there is just no texan.

Chicago Bears at Atlanta Falcons — 1:00 p.m.
Andrew – Atlanta. I don’t like this game or this pick, so I’m going with the home team.
Greg – Atlanta. The Falcons are once again off to a shaky start, but Cutler has regressed a bit back to his interception throwing days. I’ll take the Falcons in a shoot out.
Genesis – Bears. They are a far more aggressive animal. Although falcons have the advantage of the sky, bears are just bigger in size and much more aggressive.
New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills — 1:00 p.m.
Andrew – New England. I feel like this is the time of year when things start to fall apart for the Bills who are 6-10 for four of the past five years (the only off year was 2010 when they finished 4-12). Not that things can’t change.. but wow, that’s surprisingly consistent.
Greg – New England. The Patriots are 25-3 against Buffalo since Belichick became the head coach in 2000.
Genesis – Patriots. Although a buffalo is a large beast that has the ability to charge a human, the patriots have the advantage of firepower and freedom
