You can't take anything for granted in today's NFL. The last time I gave you three teams for your pool, things didn't go so well. However, the Minnesota Vikings taking out the San Francisco 49ers was a shock to anybody outside of Minnesota.
Chicago Bears Over the Jacksonville Jaguars
It's true, the Bears can be erratic on offense. However, their defense always comes to play. So long as the defense plays with 11 guys on the field, I trust Matt Forte and Michael Bush to keep Jay Cutler from screwing things up too much.
Minnesota Vikings Over the Tennessee Titans
The Titans have one win against the equally poor Detroit Lions. The Vikings have knocked off every opponent they've faced at home. Adrian Peterson should have loads of fun against the Titans defense. I can't see any problems in the Metrodome this week.
Houston Texans Over the New York Jets
At this point, the Jets might as well hold public tryouts. It's the only way New York will find an offensive playmaker. The Texans have one of the best defenses in the league and plenty of weapons on offense. These are two teams headed in opposite directions.
