OUT: David (flu), Kevin (hungover), Denise ("flu," but probably has an interview), Rick ("flu," but voice sounded way fake on his voice mail), Katie (personal day (explosive diarrhea?)), Luke (mental health day), Amy (huge zit between her eyes), intern (another abortion).
QUESTIONABLE: Mary (runner in her pantyhose), Felix (thinking of playing golf today since it's unseasonably warm), Jon (all his clothes are dirty), Sharon (cankles), Wanda (struggling to think of a reason to get out of bed), Darryl (sick, but knows he's close to getting fired as is and can't push it), Jen (is having, like, the worst day ever), Ryan (major herpes flare up).
PROBABLE: Roger (drunk), Dan (sick, but doesn't have high-speed internet at his apartment and wants to check out some stuff on YouTube), Lisa (flu, but could apparently give a crap about the rest of us), Bill (home life is terrible), boss (might accompany the intern to her abortion, but probably not).

Pittsburgh at Miami (+3)
And now, poetry from everyone's favorite sensitive linebacker, James Harrison:

My pick: Pittsburgh
Philadelphia at Tennessee (-3)
Andy Reid after last week's win: "This is a beautiful thing. When you're sitting here as a chubby head coach in the National Football League and you have two good quarterbacks, you're a happy guy."
A chubby guy? Come on, Reid. You tried to be self-deprecating and instead came off as someone in deep denial. You, sir, are morbidly obese. In fact, let me compare you to scale to someone who is actually chubby: Chubby from "Teen Wolf."
Again, to scale, and as you can see: at least 10 Chubby's make up one Andy Reid. Stop pretending we're as stupid as you are fat, Reid.
My pick: Tennessee
