Quickie NFL picks

What a crazy day of college football. I’m in Chicago right now, half delirious because I didn’t sleep on my red-eye yesterday (or is it today?) and the other half delirious from seeing all the upsets. I guess I shouldn’t be as cocky as I was, but I’m a slow learner. On that note, today’s NFL picks, with home team in caps….
