    @CowpokeU Can we get a pin?

    *updated with spreads via oddshark

    Week 2 Of the National Football League kicks off tonight with a good old fashioned AFC North slug fest between the Bengals and the Ravens (have the Ravens D tonight, so it'd be nice to start out strong).

    For as much whining and crying everyone does on all sides of the league, it's still just great to have football back. And while the games were mostly sloppy flag fests, they still had some exciting moments. Whether it's your GOAT SUPER BOWL HEROES the Eagles shutting down the trash falcons like they always do. Or Aaron Rodgers putting on arguably the single greatest herculean performance sports has ever seen, Week 1 had some great moments.

    So, let's talk Week 2. The Birds head to Tampa to take on the surprise week 1 story the Buccaneers and Fitzmagic. They'll also go up against former star DeSean Jackson (fk you, Chip) who will be eager to hit his former team deep again. Meanwhile, the dominant Eagles lines will look to do what it does best and control the LOS and set up Nick Foles and this skeleton skill crew with some reasonable field position. I think this game will be a little tighter than most would've thought before the season but the Eagles are just better. 24-13 Birdgang.

    What other games, lines, players, fantasy studs, etc you looking forward to this weekend?

    The Jags hosting the Pats!! The Pats are slight favorites, but I like the Jags to win and I like the Under.

    This should be an interesting game tonight. I think both the Ravens and Bengals are better than people gave them credit for going into the season. I think it'll be a good game tonight, as it typically in between those 2.

    I'd like to think that. But this has classic Big Ben at home bounce back and Andy early season blunder written all over it.

    Im still trying to figure out how the hell New Orleans gets the first two games of the year at home? Talk about an advantage...........even though they lost last week but still? That's not fair a team gets the first two games at home to start the year, they should split like everyone else.




    That being said I see a pissed off Saints team wanting to avenge last weeks loss to a shit TB team. The line is like 9 points and im thinking the Saints cover. So do I think we can pull this out......

    Yeah, that’s a massive spread for an NFL game, but I think the Rams blow the doors off them.

    I also like KC plus the points at Pittsburgh and the Over.

    I love that game, but wouldn’t touch it from a betting stand point.

    Taking advantage of Harrison Smith and the games he plays pre-snap was the focal point of an Eagles game plan that resulted in 38 points and the franchise's 3rd Super Bowl berth and first Super Bowl Championship.

    I like San Fran to bounce back this week against the Lions. I’m thinking about fading the Lions and the Bills all season. Those two teams seem to be a mess. I’m also seeing some week 1 over reaction in the lines with the Ravens and the Jets being over valued because they had the good fortune of catching The Mess noted above in Week 1.

    Well, I picked em last week cause I knew the Bills are the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked. Was hoping a little momentum, confidence, etc. I didn't know they were gonna wear Prince's workout pants tonight and let AJ go through them like whiskey through a 30 year Senator.

    I was out to dinner and remembered that I was playing them - I thought, screw it, it'll be a low scoring game... that's what I get for playing a team against my boys...

    but, I'll trade a whooping in FF for a win on the field any day...

    now you know why Marvin Lewis is 0-7 in the playoffs... coughed up pretty much a guaranteed 3 TD lead in the first half, getting the ball first in the second half...

    the real gift was throwing the ball 3 straight times and letting them get the ball back with 3 timeouts left.. f***ing idiot... not you, Lewis...

    Is Dak Prescott done already??

    If the Giants roll into Dallas and beat them on Sunday night football the Cowboys better start looking at college QB's... That Cowboy offense is staler than week old bread..
