ESPN Upset Watch: Ravens over Texans

ESPN Upset Watch is on a four-game winning streak, but just like last week I don't think the line in this game in particularly wrong. This is less about why the Ravens will topple the Texans, and more about how the Ravens offense can attack the Texans defense in order to overcome the injury issues that the Ravens have on their own defense and outscore Houston. Cover watch looks at the double-digit line on the biggest game of the week, Jets-Patriots. And how do we know it's the biggest game of the week? 'CAUSE THAT'S WHERE I'M GONNA BE. (These last three sentences are copyright 2012 Sal Paolantonio.)

ESPN: The Falcons' Potentially Fatal Flaws

Atlanta is 6-0, the last undefeated team, so they must be the best team in the NFL, right? We argue not, as the Falcons are a flawed team that can't run or stop the run, and has won close games over poor opponents.

ESPN Upset Watch: Packers over Texans

Frankly, not a very good week for Upset Watch, with most lines at three points or less. No game really sticks out as a possible upset, but Green Bay-Houston comes closest because Green Bay really isn't playing like a 2-3 team. (Houston, however, is playing like a 5-0 team, which is why this wasn't the easiest week to pick an Upset Watch.) Cover Watch is Tennessee-Pittsburgh.
