If you're going to win a Super Bowl, you've got to prove you can win consistently on the road. The St. Louis Rams will be trying for their second straight road win this weekend in Carolina. Several other teams vying for NFL supremacy also face stiff road tests.
That complicates picking games. The home team is the default favorite in the NFL, but this week features five games with home underdogs. Conventional wisdom might say to go with the favorite, but winning on the road is never that easy.
Last week, Brent and I tied, each of us having our best weeks of the year at 11-4. Betsy finished 9-6 for the week. On the season, I still have a one game lead over Brent, 56-36 to 55-37. Betsy needs to step it up this week as she slipped two more games behind at 51-41.
Here's who we've got this week:
|New England at NYJets||Patriots||Patriots||Jets|
|Dallas at Philadelphia||Cowboys||Cowboys||Cowboys|
|Tampa Bay at Atlanta||Falcons||Falcons||Falcons|
|Cincinnati at Detroit||Bengals||Lions||Bengals|
