Doc has been destroyed on his picks over the past few weeks. Frankly, it’s been embarrassing. So we’re trying out a new strategy this week, and it already worked on the Thursday night game. We’re going with the Costanza plan.
If every instinct Doc has had lately has been wrong, then the opposite must be right, no? Instead of tuna on toast, coleslaw, and coffee, we’re going chicken salad on rye, untoasted, with potato salad, and tea.

There’s just too much bizarre stuff happening in the NFL lately and everything we think is going to happen has not been going down. That’s the logic behind these picks. Sure, Seattle’s much better than Atlanta, but the Seahawks probably aren’t going to cover on the road in the dome.
Everyone thinks the Broncos should blow out the Chargers, but it won’t be so easy on Sunday Night Football in San Diego. The Chargers have actually played very well in their last three games, and don’t underestimate the importance of John Fox not being on the sidelines for Denver.
Cincinnati’s 6-3 while Baltimore is 3-5 and has lost three in a row. Everything points to the Bengals being better and this being a game they should win, but the Ravens are at home for the first time since Week 6 and will put on a good show for the occasion.Google+
