And then there were 2. Denver's run of beating the odds finally came to an end as they ran in to a very good Baltimore team. That leaves New Orleans and Indianapolis as the undefeateds and as you might expect they are #1 and #2 in the rankings. What may be a surprise is that Baltimore's taking down Denver launched them into the #3 spot. We'll see in the upcoming weeks if the computer's opinion is well founded as they go to #7 Cincinnati next week and host Indianapolis in 3 weeks.
Philadelphia also moved up 7 spots after walloping the Giants while the big loser in the rankings this week is Arizona falling all the way to #19 after losing at home to a 3-4 and not great Carolina team.
After several very good weeks, the computer stunk it up this week going 4-9 against the spread. An indication of how the week went was last night New Orleans had the 9.5 covered and then couldn't just kneel on the ground giving up a field goal to lose that game for the computer. Bad weeks happen, that just means a good week must be around the corner. Details of the picks in last weeks newsletter. Full prediction performance here.
