Week 9 NFL Matchup: Cleveland Browns @ Houston Texans
Date: Sunday, November 6th, 1:00 ET
Location: Reliant Stadium, Houston, TX
NFL Lines: Houston -10.5
Over/Under 41
Week 9 NFL TV Schedule: CBS

The Texans are the prototypical team who is a tease. At 5-3, there is no doubt that this team is the cream of the crop in the AFC South… for now… But of course, this is also the type of team that will blow a game like this for no reason whatsoever, drop to 5-4, and all of a sudden, they’ll be in second place in the division once again in all probability and be questioned for the rest of the week. We just don’t like the news that WR Andre Johnson is still out of the lineup, and it might be half the season in which he doesn’t ultimately play. Cleveland is somehow a 3-4 team, and the squad has had an uncanny ability to stay in games or at least make them respectable. The Browns aren’t going to win this game in the end (at least we don’t think), but we can definitely see how the Texans will make life harder on themselves than it really needs to be.

Week 9 NFL Pick: Cleveland +10.5

Week 9 NFL Matchup: Denver Broncos @ Oakland Raiders
Date: Sunday, November 6th, 4:05 ET
Location: Coliseum, Oakland, CA
NFL Lines: Oakland -7.5
Over/Under 42.5
Week 9 NFL TV Schedule: CBS

In the end, the Broncos really shouldn’t be playing high scoring games for the rest of this season. QB Tim Tebow just makes too many mistakes to get the job done against most defenses in the NFL, and we do think that we will see QB Brady Quinn at some point over the course of the latter stages of this game. That being said, RB Darren McFadden is out of this game, and RB Michael Bush is going to have to carry the whole load. This is the first game that QB Carson Palmer is going to start with his new team, and we don’t really think that he is going to be given full control of everything in this offense. It could be a very, very ugly game this week in the Black Hole, and we are surprised that this ‘total’ isn’t posted in the 30s, and maybe even the mid-30s at that.

Week 9 NFL Pick: Denver/Oakland Under 42.5

Week 9 NFL Matchup: Cincinnati Bengals @ Tennessee Titans
Date: Sunday, November 6th, 4:05 ET
Location: LP Field, Nashville, TN
NFL Lines: Tennessee -3
Over/Under 41.5
Week 9 NFL TV Schedule: CBS

The Titans are facing a tremendous battle in this one against a Cincinnati team that really might be a heck of a lot better than we originally thought. Winning on the road in Seattle is no small task, and it might turn out to be a lot harder than playing against the Titans here at LP Field. That being said, the ground game is going to get back on track this week for Tennessee, though we aren’t so sure whether it will be RB Chris Johnson or RB Javon Ringer doing the majority of the heavy lifting. At some point, the Bengals are going to fall backwards, we’d like to think, and the schedule ahead is only going to get a heck of a lot harder. After getting blown away at home a few weeks ago by the Texans, this is a game that the Titans just can’t afford to lose. We think that they’ll get the job done.

Week 9 NFL Pick: Tennessee -3

Week 9 NFL Matchup: New York Giants @ New England Patriots
Date: Sunday, November 6th, 4:15 ET
Location: Gillette Stadium, Foxboro, MA
NFL Lines: New England -9
Over/Under 51
Week 9 NFL TV Schedule: FOX

It doesn’t feel like it was just a few years ago that these two teams were playing each other in the Super Bowl. The Giants have had a good history against the Patriots, and we tend to think that this will be no exception. This is a team that is 5-2 on the season. Don’t forget about that. New York has had its struggles, including last week against lowly Miami at home, but we do think that this is a team that just has the heart of a champion. We’re not saying that the Giants are going to beat the Patriots, but we do think that they are going to make this a game, just as the Cowboys did a few weeks ago when they came to Foxboro.

Week 9 NFL Pick: New York +9
