Found November 17, 2012 on The Pass Rush:
Had to do some quick picks this week. Here we go. BUFFALO BILLS (-2) over Miami Dolphins — Have to go Bills at home. Miami didn’t look too good against the Colts. Reggie Bush was benched and Tannehill struggled. ATLANTA FALCONS (-10) over Arizona Cardinals — Too many points for me to bite on it, but the Cardinals won’t have the offense so I’ll favor the dirty birds. Teasing Falcons (-3) to pair with another game looks like a strong choice. Cleveland Browns (+8) over DALLAS COWBOYS — Expect Dallas to win, but the Browns will put up a fight and I think they land a backdoor cover in garbage time. Green Bay Packers (-3.5) over DETROIT LIONS — Packers dominate this matchup. CINCINNATI BENGALS (-3.5) over Kansas City Chiefs — Bengals looked strong at home against the Giants last week. That should continue this week against the Chiefs. ST. LOUIS RAMS (-3.5) over New York Jets — The Jets are imploding. The Rams nearly beat the 49ers on the road last week and they’ve been strong at home. WASHINGTON REDSKINS (-3.5) over Philadelphia Eagles — I’m picking against my Eagles again because they suck and find every way possible to lose games. FIRE ANDY REID! Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-1.5) over CAROLINA PANTHERS — I’ve been thoroughly impressed with the way the Bucs have been playing over the last 5 weeks. The Panthers just don’t have it together. HOUSTON TEXANS (-15.5) over Jacksonville Jaguars — LOL at the spread, but this should be blowout city. New Orleans Saints (-5) over OAKLAND RAIDERS — Raiders got rocked by the Ravens because they’re a one-dimensional team with Run DMC and Mike Goodson both out. The Saints should rock the Raiders this week and we’ll soon be talking about the Saints playoff push for a wild card. I really like this spread. San Diego Chargers (+7.5) over DENVER BRONCOS — The Broncos have been awesome at home, but the Chargers aren’t scrubs. This is a division game. The Chargers are a competitive team and should keep this one close. The Chargers will be out for revenge after blowing something like a 24-0 lead at home the last time they played. Manning had an epic 2nd half comeback. I expect the Broncos to win by 3-7. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (-9.5) over Indianapolis Colts — I love the Patriots (-2.5) in a teaser with Falcons (-3) with both at home over weak opponents, but I’ll shy away from the spread. The Colts should put up a fight like the Bills did last week when the Pats won 37-31. BALTIMORE RAVENS (-3.5) over Pittsburgh Steelers — If Big Ben are Polamalu are out, I really like the Ravens here. Polamulu may be back which is a huge boost to the Steelers defense. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (-5) over Chicago Bears — This one is the coin toss. I was going to go Bears, but they’ll be without Jay Cutler. The Bears couldn’t run against Houston last week, which will be a problem against the 49ers. Alex Smith could be back for the 49ers. No over/under is released on this one yet, but I would take the under 37. This game could end 10-3 unless turnovers and special teams contribute to additional touchdowns.

NFL Rumors: Reggie Bush Playing His Way Out Of Miami With Poor Play For Dolphins?

Reggie Bush was the savior of the Miami Dolphins in 2011. He was the only player in history to ever make Jeff Ireland look smart.

Dolphins-Bills Live Blog, First Half

Yup, the most compelling storyline for this game is based off an off-hand joke that Reggie Bush made on a sports talk radio station about women who live in Buffalo. This should be great. Even NFL.com is having a hard time polishing this turd. Also-rans also running! Excitement! This being the AFC East (make sure to remind Ryan Tannehill), two sub-.500 teams are playing for second...
