QB Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers are very much alive for a possible playoff run thanks to winning three of their last four games. The Chargers have now moved within a game of the .500 mark for the first time since a Week 2 win over Jacksonville as they host fellow Wild Card hopeful Miami on Sunday.
That roar you hear in college football is coming from Happy Valley, PA and it can only mean one thing…Penn State football is back!! Thanks to Head Coach James Franklin, a relentless blue collar defense and a pair of rising sophomores in QB Trace McSorley and RB Saquon Barkely, the Nittany Lions are on the verge of something special from the historic campus of College Station, Pennsylvania.
When Oakland takes on the defending Super Bowl champions on Sunday night in front of a national TV audience it will be the biggest game the organization has played since getting crushed in Super Bowl XXXVII by Tampa Bay. With that much as stake and the home crowd behind them we feel good about taking the Raiders as our top play of the week.
I can’t get enough of teams in college football like Wyoming. The Cowboys stand 6-2 following a win for the ages over mighty Boise State last week in Laramie. Riding a four-game win streak (SU & ATS) the Cowboys are now all alone in first-place in the Mountain Division of the Mountain West Conference as they look for their first conference championship since 1993.
How often do we get the opportunity to highlight the Cleveland Browns? Not often. So why now? Because Todd Bowles and the New York Jets are coming to town and if the Browns are going to end their winless drought this season, the Jets are as good an opponent as any to help end the streak.

The Auburn Tigers were left for dead at 1-2 following a home loss to Texas A&M on September 17th. But following a last second win over LSU the very next week, the Tigers have gone on to obliterate their last three opponents by a combined score of 152-24!
The Buffalo Bills are one of the most confident teams in the NFL right now as they enter Sunday’s contest against Miami winners of four straight both SU & ATS. It’s that newfound confidence as well as having the best quarterback on the field tomorrow that will help the Bills win a key divisional game as they look to keep their streak alive with first-place New England on deck.
It’s Week 8 in the college football season and we’re still as sold on Colorado as we were since they buried Colorado State on opening day. And why shouldn’t we considering they’ve covered every game this season and will qualify for a bowl game for the first time since 2007 if they beat Stanford on Saturday.
Don’t look now, but the Atlanta Falcons are back and playing better than ever. Since losing the NFC Championship game to San Francisco four seasons ago, the Falcons entered the season with an 18-30 record over their last 48. The turnaround started last season with the hiring of ex-Seattle defensive coordinator, Dan Quinn. In his second season (8-8 in ’15), Quinn has transformed the team from a finesse pass-oriented group to a well…
Washington State appears to be the only team in the Pac-12 North capable of competing for the division crown against their in-state rivals, the fifth-ranked Washington Huskies. In order to keep their momentum going they’ll need to beat a UCLA squad that dropped their third contest of the season in falling at Arizona State last week.
