Week 9 marked the return of defense to the NFL, finally bringing some normalcy and reliability to this season.
There were a lot of great finishes this week, with some last-second comeback wins and a few upsets.
Some teams that started out the year looking like they were unstoppable are finally being revealed to be merely above average. At the same time, the true top teams are establishing themselves.
Looking at the week ahead, there aren't a ton of enticing matchups to pick from. Overall, this is probably a week to stay away from, because a lot of this weeks games are tough to call even without the spread.
However, I'll do my best to steer you all in the right direction using some early week lines.
