Staff Picks: Chiefs, Bears and Colts
Staff Picks: Chiefs, Bears and Colts

This article is part of our Staff Picks series.

Last week the Staff were all within one game of .500, with DDD, Stopa and me going 7-6-3 and Pianowski and Erickson going 6-7-3. That gives me a seven-game lead and also the 2018 Staff Picks title because Pianowski wasn't man enough to cheat by looking up my Beating the Book picks ahead of time and picking at least seven different teams. (It turns out we differ on only four.) I hadn't won since 2006, a fact to which I wasn't keen on directing attention, but Pianowski brought it up on the SXM show a couple months back, and that public shaming coincided with him losing his massive lead and me going on a subsequent run. Don't wake sleeping dogs.

Oddly, I picked so many favorites this week, I thought I was likely to leave the normally dog-heavy Pianowski an opening, but most of the Staff seemed to take more favorites than usual this week,

We all like the Chiefs, Bears and Colts and everyone but DDD likes the Giants, Panthers, Jets and Bills too. Both Stopa and Pianowski made the Jets their best bets, while I picked Chiefs.
