The Bears look like a complete team. Could we be looking at a Chargers vs. Bears Super Bowl? It might just happen. Don't count the Colts out even though Manning has a history of choking on the big one.

    Got to give Chris Collinsworth props for going 14-0 with his picks to vault himself to the top of the leader board. I went 12-2 and still lost ground. Well it's a long season and I'm still right in the mix. Time to get ‘er done!

    <strong>Chris Collinsworth 53-21
    Chris Carter 52-22
    Bob Costas 51-23
    Dan Marino 49-25
    Thumper 49-25 </strong>

    Open date: Cleveland, Green Bay, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Minnesota, New England

    <strong>Sunday, Oct. 15</strong>

    <em><strong>Buffalo 24, Detroit 12</strong></em>
    And the rebuilding continues in Detroit.

    <em><strong>Carolina 13, Baltimore 17</strong></em>
    Baltimore will rebound from their loss to Denver. Jamal Lewis needs to get back on track.

    <em><strong>Cincinnati 28, Tampa Bay 27</strong></em>
    The Buccaneers may have found a QB in Bruce Gradkowski, but the Bengals are too much for this team in trouble.

    <em><strong>Houston 17, Dallas 24</strong></em>
    David Carr has the higher QB rating in the NFL right now, but it's not going to be enough to stop the ‘boys.

    <em><strong>N.Y. Giants 17, Atlanta 23</strong></em>
    The return of DE John Abraham will play a big role as the Falcons defense gets into Eli's head.

    <em><strong>Philadelphia 28, New Orleans 24</strong></em>
    Brees will give a heroic effort to bring them back, but comes up short. McNabb and company is just to much for the Saints.

    <em><strong>Seattle 20, St. Louis 21</strong></em>
    The Rams haven't been overpowering, but they've quietly been getting it done. A tough win over the Alexander-less Seahawks will show these Rams are for real.

    <em><strong>Tennessee 10, Washington 18</strong></em>
    The Titans almost kept the Colts in check. Even with inspired play, they lack in talent.

    <em><strong>Kansas City 13, Pittsburgh 28</strong></em>
    Expect the Steelers to rebound in a big way as they play for their playoff life. This is a must win plus some for the current champs.

    <em><strong>Miami 9, N.Y. Jets 17</strong></em>
    The Dolphins were a sexy pick to win the AFC before the season, now there season is just about over.
    <em><strong>
    San Diego 24, San Francisco 6</strong></em>
    The 49ers just aren't good enough to face this #1 ranked defense.

    <em><strong>Oakland 3, Denver 17</strong></em>
    Oakland doesn't have an extremely tough schedule, but they still have the look of a team that could go 0-16.

    <strong>Monday, Oct. 16</strong>
    <em><strong>
    Chicago 27, Arizona 13</strong></em>
    Chicago appears to have a complete team at this point of the season. I just don't see any major weaknesses.
