Hard to believe it’s the ninth week of the NFL season already, but has the second half of the season gets underway, the Cheat Sheet is looking to keep the magic moving on the year. Coming off of the best week of picks of the season (10-3), it is time to try to pick it up and go to the next level.

Last week, the Steelers, Falcons and Giants sprung the upset, with two blowing up the Upset of the Week and Free Money picks their ears. In the line toeing business, the Seahawks killed the second Free Money selection of the week in its surprisingly tough Monday Night matchup in St. Louis. All things considered though, the week worked well.

After a slate that was the easiest to pick of the year, with a clear divide between the players and the played, this week is tough. It’s time to put the challenge on a few name brands that have been sliding, such as the Falcons, Redskins, Ravens and Steelers, and see if they can salvage their seasons. Meanwhile, the Chiefs and Jets have proving ground weeks in matchups that could play out much differently than they show on face value.
