    In the NFC, five 8-6 teams appear to be competing for two available spots, though the 9-5 Seahawks haven't secured their postseason berth yet. And while the Steelers, Cowboys and Giants wouldn't make the playoffs if the season ended today, all would get in by winning their remaining two games. The Vikings, who would make it right now, do not control their own fate.

    Chicago (8-4) at Minnesota (6-6) - 1:00 p.m. (Line: Chicago by 3) The Bears have lost three of their last four games. Their lone victory in that stretch came against Minnesota. The Vikings are 5-1 at home this year. Quarterback Christian Ponder has thrown for more than 200 yards just twice in his last six games, and for more than 150 yards just three times in his last six outings. ---RJ's Pick: Minnesota by 3 New York Jets (5-7) at Jacksonville (2-10) - 1:00 p.m. (Line: New York Jets by 2.5) As of this writing, no one knows who will...

    I went 10-6 last week straight up, and 12-3-1 against the spread. *Sunday, December 2* Indianapolis 7-4 at Detroit 4-7 - 1:00 p.m. (Line: DETROIT by 4.5) The outcome of this game doesn't really matter much to me, as a Lions fan. They ain't making the playoffs this year. But I am interested to see how many times Ndamukong Suh "accidentally" kicks Colts QB Andrew Luck in the nuts. ---RJ's Pick: Lions by 8 Jacksonville 2-9 at Buffalo 4-7 - 1:00 p.m. (Line: BUFFALO by 6) A crappy warm weather team going to play in a cold weather city in...

    *Sunday, November 25* Minnesota (6-4) at Chicago (7-3) 1:00 p.m. (Line: No Line) The Vikings would move into a three-way tie for first place in the NFC North with a win here and a loss by the Packers on Sunday Night Football. There is no line for this game as of this writing presumably due to the fact that Jay Cutler's status is up in the air. I think he'll play. ---RJ's Pick: Bears by 9 Oakland (3-7) at Cincinnati (5-5) 1:00 p.m. (Line: Cincinnati by 7) The Raiders have lost three straight, while the Bengals have won two in...

    Green Bay 6-3 @ Detroit 4-5 at 1:00 p.m. (Line: PACKERS BY 3.5) Packers LB Clay Matthews is out of the lineup this week with a hamstring injury. The Lions are the only team in the NFC North with a losing record, but they are 2-1 at home this season. ---RJ's Pick: Detroit by 2

    I went 12-2 straight up last week, and 10-4 against the spread. What follows are my picks for the NFL's Week 10: *Thursday, November 8* Indianapolis (5-3) at Jacksonville (1-7) - 8:20 p.m. (Line: Colts by 3) The Colts have won three in a row. The Jaguars have dropped five straight. They are winless at home this season and have the most inept offense in the league in terms of points per game, passing yards per game, and total yards per game. - RJ's Pick: Indianapolis by 7

    I went 10-4 straight up last week, and 7-7 against the spread. For the season, that puts me at 72-46 and 50-63-5 against the spread. For a comparison, check out the "experts" over at What follows are my picks for the NFL's Week Nine: **Thursday, November 1** Kansas City 1-6 at San Diego 3-4 - 8:20 p.m. (Line: SD by 7) The Chiefs have lost four in a row. They are ranked 29th in the league in both points scored per game and points allowed per game. Matt Cassel has thrown 10 INTs and lost six fumbles so far...

    I went 11-2 last week straight up, and 6-5-2 against the spread. Here are my picks for the NFL's Week Eight: Seattle 4-3 at Detroit 2-4 - 1:00 p.m. [Line: Lions by 2] I know I'm a total homer, but the Lions should really be at least 4-2 right now. They haven't lost a game by more than eight points this season. The only game where they were truly outplayed was a Week Two loss on the road to the 49ers. The Seahawks are just 1-3 on the road and have the second-worst offense in the league in terms of...

    *Thursday, October 18* Seattle 4-2 at San Francisco 4-2 - 8:20 p.m. [Line: SF by 7] Two of the league's top defenses square off. The 49ers have a much better offense than the Seahawks, and they also have home field advantage. But don't expect a blowout. -RJ's Pick: San Francisco by 3

    *Thursday, October 11* Pittsburgh (2-2) at Tennessee (1-4) 8:20 p.m. [Line: Steelers by 5.5] Unfrozen Caveman Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is quietly having arguably his best season, with a 100.6 passer rating, eight TD passes, and just one INT. He's completing about 66% of his passes, and is on pace for nearly 4,500 passing yards this year. Also, no lost fumbles. RB Chris Johnson has rushed for more than 24 yards in a game only once this season. He has a total of 210 rushing yards through five games. At this rate, the Titans are paying him about $12,000 per yard....

    Bender2 ^ | 9-15-07 | Bender2 might be a Good Republican! by Bender2 If you don't want Hillary Clinton spending your money... you might be a Good Republican! For anyone who ever saw John Sturges classic 1965 comic western, The Hallelujah Trail, they must chuckle whenever they think back on Brian Keith and Burt Lancaster both having that great "...Good Republican..." punchline. Combined with a small theft from Jeff Foxworthy and in that spirit, I hereby offer up this thread for entertainment purposes only... As if any thing posted on Free Republic... could not be considered political!
