Well, there will be no such problems on Sunday when Tampa Bay faces the Packers at home in what should be the weekend's best matchup. Do I think the Bucs will win? Why not? They can smell the roses.
Look for Denver to win in Pittsburgh. Yes, the Bus, Jerome Bettis, means big trouble for a team that has been run on at times, but Kordell Stewart's in the down phase of his up-and-down year. A Denver loss would open up the very real possibility of the Broncos' ending up as a wild-card team and a roadie for two playoff games, assuming Kansas City finishes strong.
Minnesota at San Francisco. How do you handicap this one, after the Niners' dismal showing against the Chiefs? Will this game hold sufficient interest for them, or are the NFC West champs still cruising? O.K., I think that those two great motivators, pride and embarrassment, will kick in and that San Francisco will show enough life to put the Vikings away. But I could be wrong. I got my degree in handicapping, not abnormal psych.
