5 wins and 1 loss last week baby. Who da man? I'm da man. The record on the year now is 34-30-3, and My Bacon Specials are on fire riding out a two game winning streak. OK, my record on Specials still sux at 3-6-2 but there are 6 weeks left in the regular season. Now the picks:

Kansas City by 3 against New England. New England just doesn't have it this year, they are just an average team. KC is the same, but KC is at home and is in must win mode.

Washington at home getting 3 over San Diego. Again a classic West Coast-East game where the home team has a huge advantage. I can't see Gates being 100% if he plays, and if Washington just has to focus on LT it could be a long day for Brees and the Chargers. Washington needs the win if they have any chance to make the playoffs, and Brunell looked awful the last two weeks, look for improvement.

Buffalo getting 3 and a half at home to Carolina. The Bills have been predictable lately: take them at home and go against them on the road. It is going to be Bills weather today, look for their defense to come up big.

Houston getting 3 and a half against St. Louis. Fishiest line of the week, I would have thought St. Louis would be at least 5. Bookies don't lose money. Take Houston.

New York Jets by 1 and a half against New Orleans. Watch for the Jets to blow out New Orleans. Stressful year for the homeless Saints and the Jets players are playing for their jobs now.

New York Giants getting 5 against Seattle. This is my only road team pick of the week. I think we'll get a very high scoring game, and I am expecting a see saw game that comes down to the last play or overtime. Eli is playing with lots of confidence but Seattle might go into this game too confidently, they only need one more win at this early stage in the season to clinch first place in their division.

And finally the RED HOT Bacon Special: Tampa Bay to beat up on Da Bears by 3 in Tampa. Chicago has taken full advantage of being in a weak division and having a weak schedule. They have also fluked out by having bad weather show up when they played better teams. I think this will be a walk in the park for Tampa Bay at home.
Cadillac Williams has hit his early stride, and Chris Simms is improving and has quite a few targets.
