@Dinner The Patriots have no options at OT? Solder and Vollmer are both legit options when healthy. Not great, but legit. As long as Brady has all of his weapons and is able to get rid of the football quickly-their offensive line should be just fine. They added a couple of versatile offensive linemen in the draft that should be able to compete for one of the starting guard spots and backup tackle spots. Dante Scarnecchia is arguably the best offensive line coach ever because of his miraculous works over the years with no-named, off the street players. Dante will make their offensive line better. I don't see Pittsburgh beating New England at New England in the playoffs because of their weak defense, specifically their secondary. The Patriots got better on offense this off-season and Brady loves playing against the Steelers' defense.

By the way, the fourth-annual Walter/Joker Annual Challenge is on, as I'll be competing with the Joker's College Picks. We each pick five games and see who does the best each week.
Baylor at Kansas State Line: Baylor by 3.5. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
As a disclaimer, don't go nuts with my college football picks. I'm much better at picking NFL games; I'm just doing these upon request. Follow @walterfootball for updates.
I like Kansas State as an undefeated home dog. I feel like Baylor's getting a little too much credit.
College Football Pick: Kansas State +3.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Arizona at USC Line: USC by 13.5. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
I'm so mad at myself that I got off the fade-USC bandwagon last week. Well, I'm back on. The Trojans stink.
College Football Pick: Arizona +13.5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
Clemson at Virginia Tech Line: Virginia Tech by 7. Saturday, 6:00 p.m.
Why is this game at 6? And why does everyone keep undervaluing Clemson? The Tigers are a really good football team. I'm taking the points.
College Football Pick: Clemson +7 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
Florida Atlantic at Louisiana-Lafayette Line: Louisiana-Lafayette by 9. Saturday, 7:00 p.m.
This spread is inflated because Louisiana-Lafayette won as a 17-point underdog last week. Well, the Cajuns A) aren't that good and B) have a tough matchup against Troy next week, so there's look-ahead potential.
College Football Pick: Florida Atlantic +9 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Nebraska at Wisconsin Line: Wisconsin by 9. Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
Another undefeated dog. This should be a close game.
College Football Pick: Nebraska +9 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
