Fearless Freddie’s Football Forecast

GREAT EIGHT. While the Buffalo Bills begin their off-season, eight other teams continue their march to Super Sunday.

In Saturday’s matchups, the Atlanta Falcons will make it two road wins on a row by beating Philadelphia and the dastardly New England Patriots will methodically dispose of the Tennessee Titans.

On Sunday, look for the Pittsburgh Steelers to oust the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Minnesota Vikings to outlast the New Orleans Saints.

HOME teams are capitalized. Teams picked to win are listed first, followed by the predicted margin of victory. The official Las Vegas odds are in parentheses.
