NFL picks 

Went 4-0 last week, but of course I didn't pick against the spread.

Carolina Panthers @ St. Louis Rams
Everyone is going on about the Rams' having "to much speed", but they'll need time for Bulger to throw the ball. I don't think Bulger will perform well under the pressure of the Panthers' front seven, and he'll turn the ball over. The Panthers offense will do enough to pull the upset.
Panthers 20, Rams 17

Tennessee Titans @ New England Patriots
In the last six home games, the Patriots have given up 3, 3, 0, 0, 16, and 0 points. When the Patriots beat the Titans 38-30 last October, the Patriots were missing Ted Washington, Mike Vrabel, Willie McGinest, and Ted Johnson on defense. Factoring in the cold weather, it'll be very tough for the Titans to score more than one touchdown.
Patriots 27, Titans 13

Indianapolis Colts @ Kansas City Chiefs
Neither team can play much defense, but the Chiefs will do a bit better job at stopping the run than the Colts. And beating Jake Plummer should only count as half a win for Manning.
Chiefs 35, Colts 27

Green Bay Packers @ Philadelphia Eagles
This is where Green Bay's run ends. Sooner or later Favre's long bombs are going to get intercepted. McNabb, on the other hand, has been playing mistake-free for a while.
Eagles 22, Packers 16
