Bill Belichick and the Pats travel to face the Dolphins on Monday Night Football.
Guess who’s back, back again? Donovan McNabb has been the Redskins quarterback for all of a month and already he’s on his way back to Philadelphia. The former Eagles’ quarterback won’t expect a warm welcome in the City of Brotherly Love as he’s come to Philadelphia on a mission of revenge.
After being traded in the offseason, McNabb is all fired up to beat his former employers. Eagles fans shouldn’t be overly worried. The Redskins just plain stink. This is a team with no weapons for McNabb to play with, a porous offensive line and a defense which was overmatched by the Rams.
Philadelphia meanwhile has Michael Vick, a serious MVP contender after just two and a half games as a starter. With DeSean Jackson, Brent Celek and Jeremy Maclin to play with, I like Vick to light up the Redskins defense. Bet on the Eagles as 6½-point favorites with Sports Interaction.
The 3-0 Steelers put their unbeaten record on the line against AFC North rivals Baltimore this weekend. Pittsburgh has started strongly thanks to a dominant defense and I expect more of the same this Sunday. The Jets showed that it’s possible to push Baltimore close without playing well on offense. Pittsburgh’s temporary starter Charlie Batch isn’t prone to making big mistakes but he’s not going to be setting passing records anytime soon either.

Instead look for the Steelers to move the ball on the ground. Rashard Mendenhall has racked up 332 yards at an average of 5.2 yards per attempt in the first three weeks of the season and he will be at the heart of the offense on Sunday. Bet on the Steelers as 1½-point favorites to win big with Sports Interaction.
The Bears are the only unbeaten team left in the NFC season and now they travel to New Meadowlands Stadium for a meeting with the Giants. New York has too much talent to keep playing as badly as it has the last two weeks. Chicago doesn’t have the talent in its offensive line to keep Jay Cutler upright. That makes New York the pick here. Bet on the New York Giants to win big with Sports Interaction.
Monday Night Football sees the New England offense try and do everything it can to save the Patriots from their own defense. The Patriots defense was torn apart by Buffalo, a team contending for the first pick in next year’s draft. I can’t see Tom Brady, Randy Moss, Wes Welker and friends doing enough to win a shootout. Bet on the Dolphins as 1-point underdogs to win big with Sports Interaction.
