The Lineman: Week Four NFL picks


By Steve Keating

OK, OK; the shine of a 5-1 opening week is really starting to dim but after three weeks the Lineman is still batting .500.

But like the Atlanta Falcons, we get our season turned around in Week Four. Good Luck.

Record: 9-9. Last week 2-4

Pick of the Week: 2-1


New Orleans Saints (2-1) at Jacksonville Jaguars (1-2)  (Line Saints minus-7.5)

Let’s do the math together.

The Saints have scored 104 points and are averaging 34.7 points a game. The Jaguars have scored 29 points for an average of 9.7 points.
