Baltimore, Washington, Minnesota, Indy, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, New England, San Diego, New Orleans, Miami ,Dallas, Atlanta, Cincinnati and Tennessee are off the board.
There are three viable options this week for us.
Arizona heads to St Louis. Short week for Zona after coming off a loss on Monday night. They are 5-2 on the road this year and should win this one.
Denver is at home against the Raiders. It appears that Charlie Frye is starting for the Raiders this week. Denver rolls.
Seattle returns home to face Tampa. Tampa has been very good to us this year and I expect that to continue this week. Seattle is not very good but they are better than Tampa and play well at home. It's a long trip for Tampa and I'm sure the weather will favor Seattle.

At this juncture, Denver at home against KC is the only real strong play. Thus, I am going to hold Denver.
