There is no greater time to try to get into this competition than right now, as every week you beat me gives you another opportunity at that big cash prize at the end of the year. Let's get started right now with my Week 4 picks…

Denver Broncos (+6.5) @ Tennessee Titans – The Broncos did a lot better job keeping up with the Colts last week than I figured they would, but they still came up on the wrong side of the number. The problem with trying to beat Denver with its ground game is that its front seven is good enough to contain RB Chris Johnson. Aside from that, the passing attack on offense is going to absolutely be strong enough to beat a defense that historically struggles against the pass. If the Denver OL can keep the Titans' front seven off of QB Kyle Orton's back, it'll make for easy NFL picks to take the Broncos +6.5.

Baltimore Ravens (+1.5) @ Pittsburgh Steelers – The Steelers are playing with house money right now, but that doesn't mean that they can take on this Baltimore team, clearly their biggest test of the year. The Ravens know that they can take control of the AFC North once again with a win, and I'm still a believer that this is one of the best teams in the NFL. Going with Baltimore +1.5.

Cincinnati Bengals @ Cleveland Browns (+3) – QB Jake Delhomme might be back, and if that's the case, the Browns could prove to be stingy in this one. They were certainly worthy against my Ravens last weekend, sticking in front of the double digit spread. If RB Peyton Hillis is running for 144 yards on Baltimore, what can he do against Cincinnati? The Bengals might be meeting their match on Sunday. Brownies +3 at home for certain.

Detroit Lions (+14.5) @ Green Bay Packers – The Packers are starting to scare me. They have no running game to speak of whatsoever. Though it isn't going to make a bit of difference against Detroit's porous secondary in terms of winning the game, trying to preserve this type of a lead in the dying minutes without a running game is simply asking for a backdoor cover. I'll bet that Detroit hits the NFL spread once again by finding that backdoor. I'm all for Detroit +14.5.

Carolina Panthers (+13.5) @ New Orleans Saints – Once again… I hate teams with no running games. The Panthers certainly have one, while the Saints don't. There's no way that New Orleans is losing a second straight home game, especially with a rookie quarterback making his first career start on the road. If HC John Fox wants to keep his job, he'll have his boys fired up for this one. It won't result in a victory, but QB Jimmy Clausen will show signs of improvement and the Panthers +13.5 will cash by a slim margin.

San Francisco 49ers (+7) @ Atlanta Falcons – This is certainly a ton of underdogs that I'm playing on this week, no? C'mon, let's be real here. The 49ers can't possibly be this bad, can they? After all, this was a team that many of us thought was winning the NFC West… and it very well could still happen. Atlanta has to be full of itself after last week's 'W' in the Superdome. Not so fast, my friends. The Niners win this sucker outright. Going with San Francisco +7.

Seattle Seahawks @ St. Louis Rams (+1) – The Rams picked up their first victory last week against the 'Skins, and we tend to think that they can get back to .500 on Sunday. Seattle beat the Bolts last week thanks to a pair of RB Leon Washington kick returns for TDs. That isn't going to happen this week. Go with QB Sam Bradford and the Rams +1.

New York Jets (-5.5) @ Buffalo Bills – Remember when the Bills were losing all those Super Bowls and they were the Boy I Love Losing Super Bowls? How about this one? Boy I Love Losing Shady Lines. The Jets remember last year when Buffalo marched into the Meadowlands, picked off six passes, and ultimately won a close contest as big pups. Returning the favor this week will feel sweet as New York moves to 3-0 in division. I'm riding the Jets -5.5.

Houston Texans (-3) @ Oakland Raiders – It's probably a little early to be pushing the panic button for the Texans, but if they don't end up winning this game and winning it by a relatively comfortable margin, they're in for a nightmare in the weeks to come. You think Fox was on the hot seat in Carolina? Kubiak knows it's playoffs or bust. This could be a must win. Houston -3 for me, even if it is a square as anything play.

Indianapolis Colts (-8) @ Jacksonville Jaguars – If QB Michael Vick threw for nearly 300 yards last week against the Jags, what do you think QB Peyton Manning is going to do? Yeah, I know that Jacksonville has a history of getting up for this game every year, and yeah, I know it seems like the Jags are always dogs and are always challenging. But this year is different. This Jacksonville team is on the verge of giving up. Stick with Peyton and his Colts -8.

Arizona Cardinals @ San Diego Chargers (-9) – OL Ryan McNeill is back in camp, and that's good news for the Chargers. He won't have an impact on the field right away, but when push comes to shove, that could be a huge boost in the locker room. The Cardinals don't stand a fighting chance in this one if the Bolts don't want them to. Go with San Diego -9.

Washington Redskins (+6.5) @ Philadelphia Eagles – Don't get me wrong. I love what QB Michael Vick has been doing in Philly this year, but let's be real about one thing. He topped the Jags and the Lions. Whoopdie doo. There are now three weeks of tape on him to look at, and HC Mike Shanahan isn't an idiot. Don't you think that LB Brian Orakpo will be watching Vick like a hawk on Sunday? Parlay that with the fact that the 'Skins are bringing this QB Donovan McNabb guy with them… there could be fireworks, for sure. I definitely want the points and Washington +6.5 in this one.

Chicago Bears (+3.5) @ New York GiantsRemember to make your tiebreaker picks in this game!!! I've come to the conclusion that the Giants just aren't that good this year and the Bears really might be that good. The short passing game is going to absolutely horrify this New York defense, which just got rammed into 32 times by RB Chris Johnson last week. There's no way I can pick on a team that just had three personal fouls called… on its offensive tackles… in a game. I hate Da Bears, but I have to go with Chicago +3.5.
