Football Picks

A decidedly average 7-7 last week, with a couple of tough covers. Dan Orlovsky and his smelling salts are killing me. If he covers again, I'm going to start using smelling salts before making the picks.

Check out that picture of former Cowboys defensive end Ed "Too Tall" Jones. It seems the era of straightforward nicknames ended with "Too Tall". Based on this photograph and without looking it up, I will guess "Too Tall" Jones is nine and a half feet tall.

Oakland (+7.5) at Baltimore
San Diego (-3) at New Orleans (in London)
Kansas City (+14) at NYJ
Buffalo (-1.5) at Miami
