NFL Underdog Pick: Week 4
September 27th 2007

HOU @ ATL (+3)
Forget the points in this one. Atlanta is going to win straight up. The
Texans don't even have a WR to start this week, let alone the fact that their
center Steve McKinney was put on injured reserve. The Texans running back
situation is also in rough shape as it appears that Ahman Green might not play
and Ron Dayne will be getting a bulk of the carries. Matt Schaub returns
to play his former team but without any weapons on offense it is going to be one
daunting task to pull out a win on the road.
On the flip side, Atlanta is home for the second straight week and they are
finally not distracting by Michael Vick's troubles anymore. They have
DeAngelo Hall to thank for losing his temper and having shouting matches on the
sidelines with Coach Petrino. The Falcons will win and can finally move forward
minus Michael Vick.
