The Broncos' cartoonish -27 over Jacksonville isn't even the only double-digit spread this week.
San Francisco is -11 over Arizona and Seattle is -14 over Tennessee. These in turn attract the underdog bets. And I'm feeling kind of underdogish today. Underdogish...bullish even...including the Steelers' return to the win column along with taking the three points they're getting against the Jets.
A clunker of a match-up on paper leads off the week, as does my underdog covering rampage.
