    Had an idea where we could pick the results of each real NFL matcup every week. But unlike CBS/Fox/ESPN/NFL Network "analysts", we would pick it based on the opening Vegas spreads rather than just picking the winner and see who comes out on top with the best W/L total at the end of the season. It's a little late to post this for the game tonight but here's all the opening spreads for this week:

    Saints @ Packers(-5.5) - Packers win
    Falcons @ Bears(-1) - Bears win
    Bengals @ Browns(-3) - Bengals win
    Bills @ Chiefs(-7) - Bills win
    Eagles(-4) @ Rams - Eagles win
    Lions @ Buccaneers(-3) - Lions win
    Titans @ Jaguars(-2.5) - Titans win
    Steelers @ Ravens(-2.5) - Ravens win
    Colts(-1) @ Texans - Texans win
    Giants(-3) @ Redskins - Redskins win
    Seahawks @ 49ers(-5.5) - 49ers win
    Vikings @ Chargers(-9) - Vikings win
    Panthers @ Cardinals(-3) - Cardinals win
    Cowboys @ Jets(-4) - Cowboys win
    Patriots(-4) @ Dolphins - Patriots win
    Raiders @ Broncos(-1) - Raiders win

    For those that might've never seen this before, the number next to some teams essentially signify how much that team is down by at the start of the game. So in order for the Packers to win against the spread, they'll need to beat the Saints by 6 or more. And if the Cardinals beat the Panthers by exactly 3, then it'll be a push and no one will get a win or loss.

    ****I'm thinking about making an exception for the Colts @ Texans game. This line clearly opened before the news about Peyton not playing and now the closest line is the Texans(-8) but I'm going to leave it at the Colts(-1) unless some people agree that it should be changed.
