But for the second week in a row, no team will cover the spread without winning the game straight up.

I like New England for the cover the 10-point spread. The Texans, playing at home last week, scored one offensive TD, and prior to that scored just one in three games. I would be very surprised if their offense could suddenly figure out how to score touchdowns again. While the Bengals' defense is more stout than New England's, the Texans could only score one offensive TD in two late-season games vs Indianapolis. They're settling for too many field goals. That won't cut it vs the Patriots.

I like Denver giving 9 points too.

Atlanta giving 2 is a tough call. This game looks like the toughest call of the weekend.

San Francisco giving 3 is another tough one. If the Niners win, it will likely be a razor-thin margin of victory. I could see Green Bay, meanwhile, winning this by a TD or more.
