    Let's have at it:

    Packers 31, Seahawks 17 - Favre throws 2 TDs, Hasselbeck throws an ill-timed pick, Chris Berman waxes about "the frozen tundra"....all feels right up in cheese country.

    Patriots 34, Jaguars 14 - Patriots will stack the box and make Garrard beat them by himself. He'll need to have a 25-39, 300-yard 3 TD type of game, and I have no reason to believe he can do that. Pats will get plenty of bumps and bruises, but they'll get win #17.

    Colts 31, Chargers 14 - I'm not jumping on the Chargers' bandwagon after today - they simply wore down an undermanned opponent with their superior talent and depth. The Colts will not be nearly as outclassed physically and are playing at home.

    Cowboys 35, Giants 24 - Eli plays well again against a defense that can't cover down the field. But Romo and his offense, even with T.O. limited, are too much for the Giants' suspect secondary.

    Packers 27, Seahawks 24 -- These two always seem to play close games. I like the Packers at home with Grant helping to move the chains. Boy, has he been a nice find.

    Patriots 38, Jaguars 28 -- Jaguars will score points, but not enough. I don't like the defense to stop Brady and Moss enough to make a difference. And if Garrard has to rally the Jags ... no way.

    Colts 28, Chargers 17 -- If Manning set up Vinatieri for a chip-shot field goal to win the game in San Diego after he threw six picks, the Colts ought to win with a much better all-around performance next week.

    Giants 21, Cowboys 17 -- I picked the Redskins to win next week, so I'll be consistent and take the Giants. Eli delivers again while the Cowboys' late-season struggles on offense doom them. Jessica Simpson weeps.

    Colts 31, Chargers 29 ... Vinatieri makes the FG this time
    Jags 27, Patriots 24 ... I just have a hunch.

    Packers 35, Seahawks 10 ... Seattle isn't very good. Green Bay is decent.
    Cowboys 24, Giants 13 ... Eli throws 3 INTs and gets roasted in NY for the next eight months.
