Ravens +1.5 at Steelers
I know the Ravens aren’t very good right now but do you really think Pittsburgh is capable of winning two games in a row right now? I’m not sold. Give me John Harbaugh’s crew to bounce back.
The McNeil and Spiegel Show handed out their weekly game balls for the Bears 27-21 win over the Giants Thursday night. Agree with who they gave it to? Disagree? Someone else deserve a vote or two?

Cardinals +2.5 at Bucs
The benching of Josh Freeman is fine and all but announcing it so late in the week has allowed very little practice time for Mike Glennon with Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams. Glennon may go on to be a fine NFL quarterback but the Bucs offense struggles mightily here.
15 – Colts over Jags
14 – Broncos over Eagles
13 – Ravens over Bills
12 – Redskins over Raiders
11 – Saints over Dolphins
Mac – Under Spiegs – Under
