The NFL season has hit November and the Atlanta Falcons remain the lone undefeated team after a dominant win last week over Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles. This week, the Falcons continue its NFC East tour, hosting Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys. The rest of the NFL slate features a number of interesting matchups, starting with the aforementioned Cowboys-Falcons battle. Elsewhere in the NFC East, the Giants host Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers, while Robert Griffin III and the Redskins take on Cam Newton and the struggling Panthers. This week’s Monday night game features two teams in a must-win situation, as Michael Vick and the Eagles travel to New Orleans to take on Drew Brees and the Saints. Over in the “Pick Your Knows” department, I followed last week’s dominant performance with a mediocre effort. I went away from certain themes, such as giving additional credit to teams on a bye week. This week, I steered back in that direction, as you will see with my Cincy pick. In the end, it’s a tricky week for spreads, with seven games falling into a 3½-point line. A 50/50 win total would leave me plenty satisfied, considering some of the games. Last Week: 6-8 This Season: 65-53 Last Two Seasons: 144-112 (2010) and 131-125 (2011) It’s once again time to “Pick Your Knows” - the only time it’s not a disgusting habit – and here are Week 9’s scheduled games (with spreads as they appear through CBSSports Fantasy).
