    Coin flip. Eagles seem more likely to throw a pick six though.

    I am taking Miami against a putrid Titans offense. Detroit is the only one of your top-10 teams available and I just can’t trust them.

    I know NE was on a bye last week, where do you rate the Patriots’s defense? Thanks as always!

    Bills are pretty explosive. I don’t love them this week. The first meeting they gave up 28 points, 438 yards. They did have three sacks and six turnovers though.

    I know Colts have been proclaimed to be a big sleeper D this week. You never know with Thursday night games. Last week saved me getting 25.0 pts from the Chargers D. Should I play the Colts or the Cowboys against a struggling Eagles Offense? Thanks!

    Sorry for missing this. It’s kind of a 50-50. The Eagles have the potential to snap out at any time so going with Indy against a horrible Jags offense isn’t a bad call.
