Season Record W-L-T Steve: 22-18-0 Brandon: 22-18-0
$$$$ Steelers -5.5 over the Titans… Look for the Steelers to bounce back after a disappointing loss last week. Offensive line coach Mike Munchak would love nothing more than to hand his old employers a loss. The Steelers players will be more than happy to help him accomplish his goal.
$$$ Bills +5.5 over Miami… The Bills have been playing tough and are very familiar with the Dolphins. Miami is banged up going into this game and look for a tough Buffalo defense to hurt them a bit more.
$$ Lions +1.5 over the Cardinals… The Lions have a top notch defense and I get the feeling that will be too much for the Cardinals without Carson Palmer.
$ Colts -3 over the Patriots… Andrew Luck and the Colts are at home and I look for Luck to take his next step to greatness . Luck will be up to the challenge against Brady and the Pats.
$$$$ Lions +1.5 over the Cardinals… The number one defense in the league will be in Arizona come Sunday and for a team that just lost their starting quarterback, that does not spell for a good recipe as I expect the Lions to pull out of this with a win.
$$$ Steelers -5.5 over the Titans… The Steelers are having some real consistency issues and also some problems winning on the road. Come week 11, this is a time to get things figured out against a sub par Titans team. The Steelers should get a good win in prime time.
$$ 49ers -4 over the Giants… Both teams scare me but after a big win last week over the Saints in which the 49ers won in overtime. I think the 49ers feed off that momentum and get a win over a Giants team that continues to struggle.
$ Texans +3 over the Browns… Things are good for the Browns as they sit above everyone in the AFC North. However, the Texans might just be their match as they will start quarterback Ryan Mallett and the defense is led by J.J. Watt who is capable of changing a whole game.
