I like both underdogs to cover, although i'm not sure either wins. I find it funny people are expecting the same level of play from Kaepernick. I'm assuming the Falcons, unlike the Packers will be aware he might run and be prepared for it. The Packers are still unaware he is a running QB.
Early spread 49ers are -3 on the road Patriots are -10
I don't get this. Gronk is out and the last two contests came down to a field goal's difference with the Pats losing the second of those two games. The Pats looked impressive vs. Houston because the Texans aren't capable of coming into Foxboro and posing a threat. Baltimore is different. Baltimore is a real opponent. Gap can't be 10 points if Flacco plays the way he's played vs. the Pats the last two meetings.
I think Baltimore will put up a good show but I don't see them getting by New England. Any other team i'd say Baltimore goes through but New England is too well of an oiled machine. Ray Lewis meets his end from the hands of Brady.
