First, I'd like to apologize to Jeff and the boys. I really want to pick the Giants, but I know if I do there's a 100% chance that the G-Men will win by three or four points. I'll have to take my chances and avoid that game, hoping that the Eagles can find a way to win without my voodoo anti-luck magic.
My pick is St. Louis +2.5 at Oakland.
St. Louis looked better offensively last week against the Bears. Oakland might be able to "shut down" Marc Bulger, but only because Stephen Jackson gets 175 and two TDs on the ground. Bulger passes for about the same, with one pick and one TD. St. Louis wins 27-16.
