SATURDAY, OCTOBER 6
ARIZONA at STANFORD (3 p.m. ET): No doubt the folks in Palo Alto have reason to be concerned with QB Nunes following his shabby 18-of-37, 170-yard passing performance in last Thursday's 17-13 prime-time loss at Washington and hope you saw that Stanford HC Shaw shot down any "QB controversy" in an earlier-week press conference. Now, Nunes must get his act in gear against Arizona team that has allowed 38, 49 and 38 points in three of its first five games this season. If the 9 ½-point dog 'U of A 'Cats are gonna be there at the proverbial finish line than RB Carey (averaging 108 ypg with 7 TDs) must bust a few big ones against Cardinal defense that ranks fourth in the country in rush defense (65.3 ypg). Will it be bounce-back time for the kids from "The Farm" ... or will the Nunes slump continue here?
OKLAHOMA at TEXAS TECH (3:30 p.m. ET): Hey, here's another ranked team coming off a bitterly disappointing loss as the Oklahoma Sooners - once upon a time the #4 team in the country (now #17 in the AP poll) - have had two weeks to stew over that 24-19 loss to 15 ½-point pup Kansas State and now HC Stoops' club in revenge mode as Techsters beat 'em 41-38 last year in Norman. Tell us right now if Oklahoma QB Jones will steer clear of making boneheaded plays and we'll tell you whether the Sooners win/cover this 5 ½-point price but keep in mind flip side is T-Tech QB Dodge can chuck it with the best of 'em and looks like the Red Raiders are - finally - playing some defense too! One major key in this Big 12 clash is whether or not Oklahoma has success with "Bell-dozer" offense it implements in goal-line situations (see key lost fumble against K-State in that situation two weeks ago) ... so stay tuned.
GEORGIA at SOUTH CAROLINA (7 p.m. ET): Best game on the menu as #5 Georgia Dawgs (5-0) invade stingy SC Gamecocks (also 5-0) and did you realize that HC Spurrier's crew is yielding a meager 11.2 points per game this year? No doubt that Carolina defense better bring its sledgehammers here against well-balanced Georgia attack that last week featured a pair of 100-plus yard rushers in frosh Gurley (the SEC's leading rusher) and fellow freshman Marshall in that wild 51-44 non-cover win against Tennessee. Note that six of the last eight showdowns in this rivalry have been decided by a touchdown or less and so one mistake here or there could be the ball game and so pay special attention to Georgia kicking game that last week missed two PATs and blundered a couple of kick returns.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 7
ATLANTA at WASHINGTON (1 p.m. ET): Just in case you're wondering the last time these Atlanta Falcons lost a football game it happened in last week's NFC Wild Card action (see the humbling 24-2 loss at the NY Giants) and now scoring's not been a problem for this 2012 team that's averaging 31 ppg and has a true MVP candidate in WR White who hauled down monstrous 59-yard bomb from QB Ryan to help set up game-winning FG that beat Carolina last Sunday. Now, Falcs know they may need to score 30-or-so points to beat high-octane 'Skins crew and so we know why you're eyeballing that totals price! If Washington QB Griffin III (323 yards passing and one TD run in last week's wild 24-22 win in Tampa Bay) doesn't take too many hits here, than Falcs may finally fall for first time in '12 campaign but HC Smith's gang does have major mojo, don't they?
BALTIMORE at KANSAS CITY (1 p.m. ET): It's nice to see the Ravens playing a traditional Sunday afternoon tilt after playing Monday, Sunday and Thursday Night games for your national TV viewing pleasure but might HC Harbaugh's gang be walking into a real hornet's nest here at Arrowhead? Keep in mind KayCee Chiefs turned the ball over six times last Sunday in dreadful 37-20 home loss to rival San Diego and afterwards HC Crennel was spitting mad! Now, RB Charles looks to scoot free against "oldish" Baltimore stop unit and gotta feeling that AFC West club will play spirited game here - but is that enough to swipe the cover at current Ravens minus 5-point price? Check with Jim Hurley on Game-Day morning and he'll set you straight!
DENVER at NEW ENGLAND (4:25 p.m. ET): Hard to believe that an NFL team could score 45 points in one half but that's what the Pats did in last weekend's 52-28 rip-job in Buffalo and maybe best part of that win for the Belichicks is that kid RB Bolden (137 yards rushing) smash-mouthed his way to cool 7-yard scoring run and Foxboro folks won't be shy about turning him loose here against Denver defense that still has lots of question marks despite that 37-6 win against Oakland last Sunday. In the latest Manning vs. Brady tussle, something tells us the four-time MVP-winning Manning won't complete 30-of-38 passes (see last week) against an assortment of "D" looks here.
MONDAY, OCTOBER 8
HOUSTON at NY JETS (8:40 p.m. ET): Safe to say that the 4-and-oh Texans have learned to win in comfy fashion these days as HC Kubiak's gang already has posted triumphs this year of 20, 20 and 24 points and now banged-up Jets team (no CB Revis and no WR Holmes - both lost for the year) don't know where to turn for the answers to their many problems ... and don't tell us it's Tebow Time, okay! If the home-dog J-E-T-S want to snap up this prime-timer than QB Sanchez (completing less than 50 percent of his passes this year) must get some help as overrated O-line has been brutal and WRs/TEs simply don't catch everything thrown their way. If you wish to zoom in on one Jets-related item here than let's see if pass rush can make Houston QB Schaub (fresh off 20-of-28, 202-yard, two-TD showing against Tennessee last week) uncomfortable at all ... but don't hold your breath!
