Schon: Picks of the Week 10/8/06

With Denver's 13-3 win over Baltimore on Monday Night Football, Broncos Update columnist Schon correctly hit on eight games against the spread, dropped four and tied two. Season totals to this point - 43 wins and 26 losses.

So I'm rocking it out for Week 5 – Tough call on the Philly – Dallas dance - the circus of TO's accidental overdose and return to the City of Brotherly Love may play out too much for Parcells - with only a two-point spread I've got a feeling hometown hatred rules in this one.

Think you can do any better – BRING IT ON – we'll go head to head for Week Six and drink plenty of beer in the process.

Giants – 4 ½ over Washington - W
Jacksonville – 6 ½ over New York Jets - W
Titans + 18 ½ over Indianapolis - W
Vikings – 6 ½ over Detroit - W
New Orleans - 6 ½ over Tampa Bay - L
Green Bay + 3 over St. Louis - Tie
Buffalo + 10 over Chicago - L
Carolina – 8 over Cleveland - Tie
Miami + 9 ½ over New England - L
Arizona + 3 ½ over Kansas City - W
49ers – 3 ½ over Oakland - W
Philly – 2 over Dallas - W
Pittsburgh + 3 over San Diego - L

Broncos – 4 over Baltimore - W
