The Game of the week has the Patriots traveling to the Meadowlands to take on the Jets as Jim Poore is back with his weekly picks column against the spread.

We are almost halfway through the season and we are starting to separate the contenders from the pretenders. Let's see who is going to win this week.

Seattle 6 @Arizona

This should be a good road test for the Seahawks.

Seahawks 26-14

San Diego 7 1/2 @Jacksonville

The Jags are the worst team in football and Florida won't miss them when they leave.

Chargers 23-10

@Kansas City 6 1/2 Houston

Here are two teams going in opposite directions.

Chiefs 24-16

@Detroit 3 Cincinnati

The Lions will show they are a dangerous team to play.

Lions 33-21

@Miami 8 Buffalo

How many starting quarterbacks will the Bills go through this year?

Dolphins 27-13

@Washington 1 Chicago

The Bears beat the Redskins in a close one.

Bears 20-17

@Philadelphia 2 1/2 Dallas

It looks like Nick Foles might be the quarterback of the future in Philadelphia.

Eagles 27-24

@Carolina 6 St. Louis

Next year could be a better year for both of these teams.

Panthers 30-21

@Atlanta 7 Tampa Bay

Most thought this would be a big game at the beginning of the year. They were wrong.

Falcons 27-12

San Francisco 4 1/2 @Tennessee

The Titans continue to give teams fits.

49ers 27-20

@Green Bay 10 Cleveland

Not sure how many more injuries the Packers can deal with.

Packers 31-20

@Pittsburgh 2 Baltimore

The Ravens are still the best team in the AFC North.

Ravens 23-21

Denver 6 1/2 @Indianapolis

Indy will be a successful homecoming for Peyton Manning.

Broncos 35-28

Gutsy win by New England last week but the injuries will come back to haunt them eventually, just not against the Jets.

Still hard to believe the Giants are winless.
