Hell hath no fury like Jerry Jones when the Cowboys start 1-3. With Cowboys Stadium hosting the Super Bowl in February, Jones thought he had a team capable of winning it all this year. Instead he’s been forced to look on as the Cowboys have struggled at the start of the season.
As a result, this weekend’s trip to Minnesota could be the last one Wade Phillips makes as head coach in Dallas. Luckily for Phillips, the Vikings have their own problems to worry about. While Brett Favre’s personal life is generating headlines, it’s his inability to stay upright that should worry fans in Minnesota.
I like the Dallas defense to beat up Favre this Sunday, forcing some turnovers in the process. Despite the Cowboys’ own offensive issues, the defensive edge should be enough for Dallas to win. Bet on the Dallas Cowboys as 1½-pointunderdogs and win big with Sports Interaction.
After stuttering at the start of the season, the Ravens have found their identity and are ready for a second signature win of the season. They’ll get the opportunity to do so at New England, with the Patriots struggling to make up for the loss of Randy Moss. Offensively there’s been a lot to like about New England but this will be their first outing without Moss.
The Patriots are also porous in defense so look for the Ravens to control the game with a balanced approach to their offense. Bet on the Baltimore Ravens as +3.0 underdogs with Sports Interaction.
Sunday Night Football pits the Colts against the Redskins in Washington. After struggling to put away the Chiefs last week, Indianapolis should find it easier to score on a weak Redskins’ secondary. Washington is giving up 298 passing yards per game. That means Peyton Manning should have plenty of holes in coverage to exploit.
While Donovan McNabb has done a remarkable job in leading the Redskins to a 3-2 start, it’s hard to see him pulling a rabbit out of a hat in this game. Bet on the Indianapolis Colts as -3.5 favorites and win big with Sports Interaction.
AFC South rivals Tennessee and Jacksonville clash in this week's Monday Night Football contest. Both teams have blown hot and cold in 2010 and both have enjoyed big wins recently. There is one key difference, however, and that’s Jacksonville’s difficulty getting its defense off the field, with the Jaguars opponents’ converting 42.3 percent of third downs.
That should prove fatal against Vince Young and Chris Johnson. Bet on the Tennessee Titans as -3.0 favorites with Sports Interaction.
