BE A SUR­VIVOR

Sunday Sports - - SPORTS - — Dan Bilicki

The down­side of mak­ing your sur­vivor pick on a Wed­nes­day is that some­thing ter­ri­ble can hap­pen later in the week. So, we hope your pick didn’t lock in early this week – like ours did – if you had Hous­ton. The Tex­ans are still favoured over the lowly Colts, but we’re now shaky on them ac­tu­ally be­ing able to win with De­shaun Watson out for the sea­son.

Both the Rams and the Gi­ants are com­ing off their bye week, but that’s just about where the sim­i­lar­i­ties end for th­ese two teams. The Rams are striv­ing for their first play­off berth since 2004 while New York can barely field a full team.

Take the vis­i­tors, even if it is an early start for the West Coast­ers.

Once again, the Tampa Bay Bucs have dis­ap­pointed their be­liev­ers, stum­bling into New Or­leans this week on a four-game los­ing streak. The Saints have im­proved their de­fence to a pass­able level and should take care of their NFC South ri­val.
