Back-to-back winning weeks for the sure-fire picks. What is going on? With last week’s 5-2-1 performance, the season tally is now 49-68-2. Still pathetic, but getting better. Let’s see what we can do here.

Sunday will mark the end for the Chargers and Philip. I won't miss them.

Sunday will mark the end for the Chargers and Philip. I won't miss them.

Cincinnati at Cleveland (-3), 1 p.m. Sunday
A team with Ken “noodle arm” Dorsey at quarterback is favored. Is this really happening? Too easy. Bengals +3.

Pittsburgh (-2) at Tennessee, 1 p.m. Sunday
The Steelers’ brutal schedule will finally catch up to them as they face an angry Titans team coming off their second loss of the season. Jeff Fisher will have his guys ready. Titans +2.

San Diego at Tampa Bay (-3.5), 1 p.m. Sunday
The Buccaneers will bounce back after consecutive road losses at the friendly confines of the Pirate Ship. Philip Rivers may shed a man tear. Bucs -3.5.

Arizona at New England (-9), 1 p.m. Sunday
Are the Cardinals so bad they can’t compete with the Brady-less Patriots? Hate to say it, but Bill Belichick should be coach of the year. Cardinals +9.

Miami (-3.5) at Kansas City, 1 p.m. Sunday
Any life the Chiefs had left was sucked dry by the Chargers’ dramatic comeback on Sunday. There is no way the Dolphins will let the dream die at the hands of the Chiefs. Dolphins -3.5.

New Orleans at Detroit (O/U 50), 1 p.m. Sunday
Two dome teams with two of the worst defenses in the NFL will battle in Detroit. Desperate for a win, the Lions will pull out all the stops and there will be plenty of points. Over 50.

Atlanta at Minnesota (-3), 4:15 p.m.
An NFC South team has to win on the road one of these days. Falcons are in win-or-go-home mode and will feel right at home in the Vikings’ dome. Falcons +3.

Houston (-7) at Oakland, 4:15 p.m. Sunday
The Texans are a Sage Rosenfels’ meltdown away from being in the playoff race and have won four in a row. They won’t let the Raiders ruin their hopes of a winning season. Texans -7.
