Indianapolis should even record vs. Titans

Posted: Friday, September 17, 2004

The Indianapolis Colts are one of the NFL's best teams and did nothing to hurt their reputation in a three-point loss in New England on opening night. Now they go into Tennessee an underdog for the second straight week, step two in a devastating early schedule.

But there's reason for optimism for Peyton Manning and friends, underdogs by a point-and-a-half.

COLTS, 22-21

Minnesota (plus 3 1/2) at Philadelphia (Monday night)

The Vikings are better indoors than out.

EAGLES, 27-20

Pittsburgh (plus 4) at Baltimore

The Ravens won't be embarrassed at home.

RAVENS, 19-6

New England (minus 8) at Arizona

The perfect place for a letdown the Cardinals were competitive at home last season and Pat Tillman ceremonies will have them fired up.

Bill Belichick doesn't allow letdowns and devours young QBs.

PATRIOTS 24-13

Carolina (plus 6) at Kansas City

The Panthers are without Steve Smith and the defense looked ordinary against Ahman Green and the Packers. Priest Holmes romps?

CHIEFS, 27-16

St. Louis (plus 2 1/2) at Atlanta

The Rams needed a little luck to beat the Cardinals.

The luck runs out.

FALCONS, 27-24

Washington (minus 3) at New York Giants

Tom Coughlin's silly fines have the Giants angry. They take it out on the Redskins.

GIANTS, 19-17

Denver (minus 3) at Jacksonville

Jake Plummer will only throw with his right arm this week.

BRONCOS, 27-20

Chicago (plus 8 1/2) at Green Bay

Rivalry game and Packers on a short week.

PACKERS, 23-17

Cleveland (plus 4) at Dallas

Jeff Garcia will carve up the Dallas defense if it plays as it did last week.

Tuna won't let it.

COWBOYS, 20-14

New York Jets (minus 3) at San Diego

Chad Pennington will carve up the San Diego defense and Marty Schottenheimer won't be able to do anything about it.

JETS, 32-24

Miami (plus 4 1/2) at Cincinnati

The Dolphins had to play early to avoid Hurricane Ivan last week and they're supposed to get the remnants in Cincinnati Sunday.

It's just not their year.

BENGALS, 26-16

San Francisco (plus 7) at New Orleans

Speaking of Ivan ... he forced the Saints to practice in San Antonio.

SAINTS, 17-7

Seattle (minus 3) at Tampa Bay

The Seahawks flew to New Orleans and on now to Tampa. Air miles, jet lag and ....

SEAHAWKS, 20-9

Houston (plus 3) at Detroit

The Lions haven't started 2-0 since 2000.

LIONS, 24-19

Buffalo (plus 3 1/2) at Oakland

Into the black hole.

RAIDERS, 15-14

LAST WEEK: 9-7 (Spread), 12-4 (straight up)
