Couple of lines stand out so far based on the first 2 games of the season

Falcons +2.0 @ Dolphins
I don't really understand how the Dolphins are favourites here. Even based on the 2 games so far I would still pick the Falcons over the Dolphins every time. Getting points is a bonus here.

Lions +1.5 @ Redskins
As above, I would have the Lions as the better team here although they do have a tendency to screw it up at times. The Redskins are really struggling to get anything going at the moment and getting the points are a bonus here again IMO.

Packers -2.0 @ Bengals
The Bengals defence is not that good that they are going to be able to stop the Packers from scoring a lot of points here - at least 30 I reckon and I can't see Andy Dalton et al living with them here.

Bears -2.0 @ Steelers
This is only the 6th time that the Steelers will be home underdogs in 11 seasons. They won 5 of those 6 games outright (only loss was the 13-10 defeat to Ravens last year). However, given the state of the franchise at the moment, it's hard to see them doing anything here, especially against a Bears defence that should be able to get to Big Ben almost at will.

yeah well the pats must improve. youd think. cant see em winning many road games though. got atlanta, cincy, carolina, houston, baltimore on the road. right now they dont look like winning any of em. may not need to like, 9-7 could easily win the division. and 2nd seed the way the afc is going!

The price will drop, cos of the Packers loss and if the 49ers lose, the home advantage would be much closer, as harry said 3-0 against 1-2 already

Report Wallflower September 22, 2013 11:30 PM BST
I'm saying the following:

- The "afc is pathetic" remark is a bit wide of the mark (especially since they lead the nfc head-to-head 9-1 atm!)
- The which conference is stronger is pointless - average standard is the same contenders
- Superbowl Contenders -  Currently? Broncos, Patriots, 49ers, Seahawks, Packers, Falcons, Saints, (I don't think Texans are). So 4-2 Nfc.....ya-de-dah, teams will come from nowhere from either conference...(by the way Bengals just beat one of the big NFC "contenders"Shocked). This could and will probably change. Could be 4-4, 1-6....who knows

Also, if Denver Broncos win the Superbowl, it doesn't mean anything about afc/nfc, likewise if Seahawks win in terms of nfc/afc

pathetic afc   11-1   nfc

NFC Contenders:  packers lose to afc browns
                 49ers lose to afc bengals
                 falcons lose to afc dolphins


Childish, I know, but couldn't resistMischief


Anyway:-

Don't really back SB winner early on, but its close to 3 weeks in, for me (I'm ruling out 11 teams, so since its the NFL, 21 contenders!!!)

Only two cast-iron contenders:- Broncos, Seahawks
If get to play-offs then can win it all:- Packers, 49ers, Patriots,
Strong chance of getting there, but don't think will win (could, but not for me):- Saints, Falcons, Texans,
Play-off contenders - NFL anyone could do it:- Cowboys, Eagles, NY Giants, Panthers, Lions, Dolphins, Ravens, Bengals, Steelers, Colts, Titans, Chiefs, Chargers.......(expect at least 2 of these to get some sort of momentum come January)
Better than people think, but too flawed :- Bucs, Rams, Cardinals, Raiders
Will not meaningfully contend:- Redskins, Bears, Vikings, Jets, Bills, Browns, Jags

A personal view, of course.....love watching it unfold.
