Not a full slate as we still have teams getting their bye weeks in.

It's really a "two game" weekend. You have Dallas at Philly Sunday night. You have New England at Pittsburgh earlier in the day.

We'll talk about anything though. Your picks, fantasy moves, and commentary as it all unfolds are certainly welcome.

Betting odds from the Las Vegas Hilton.

Indianapolis at Tennessee (9)
Jacksonville at Houston (9.5)
Minnesota at Carolina (3.5)
New Orleans (NL) at St. Louis
Arizona at Baltimore (13)
Miami at NY Giants (10)
Washington at Buffalo (6)
Detroit (2.5) at Denver
New England (3) at Pittsburgh
Cleveland at San Fran (9.5)
Cincinnati (3) at Seattle
Dallas at Philadelphia (3.5)
San Diego (3.5) at Kansas City

The number that the oddsmakers tried to put in crashed the system.

Sam Bradford didn't play last week due to injury. They are waiting to set the line due to his might or might not playing status.

If Tebow beats Detroit, I will give him proper credit for it, unless its another play like shit for 50 minutes then get lucky at the end again

Niner kill the Browns. Browns have the dullest team I have ever seen and they play a good defensive team.

I know there's a ton of Steeler fans on this board. What's the vibe in terms of them and the Pats. New England is the only team I can think of that has been favored in Pittsburgh for a long time now.

Brady is, I believe, 6-1 against Pittsburgh....I think with the Steelers tired old defense, they got 7-1 this week.

NE's Defense isn't much better than Pitts, they play shootout football basically. They score a lot, but so do their opponents.

We'll have to wait & see

Other than the opener, the Steelers defense has been pretty solid. The pass defense has probably been better than it has for years, but the run defense is probably slightly weaker than it's been.  New England has a beast D-line and a questionable at best secondary.

Brady's going to be Brady as usual, but the Steelers might just have the best (if not unknown) receiving corps in the NFL. They're going to have to double team Wallace to keep him from getting another 95 yard TD, and that should open up things for Sanders, Brown, and Heath Miller.

Everyone's expecting a shootout, and with the weapons the Steelers have it's the best shot they've had in years to beat the Pats as long as Ben doesn't get too obsessed with going for the long bomb every drive.

It should also be mentioned Dick LeBeau was embarrassed by the whooping the defense got last year and vowed it would not happen again. If he releases the hounds this week, Brady could be in for a long day.
