Editor's note: An error was made in calculating the Week 14 records, when the Colts-Titans game was scored as a best bet win when it should have been recorded as a push. As a result, the best bet record for Week 14 has been corrected, resulting in corrections to the season-to-date best bet records. We apologize for an inconvenience this may have caused.
Below are the PFW consensus selections for this week, based on the editors' picks made one week in advance of the games. We also show three best bets — a fourth best bet, an over/under pick, is available each week with a subscription to PFW Online or the Handicapping Inner Circle.
If you would like to see the individual selections of all nine PFW editors — for every game — and the best bets of each editor, too, you can do it as early as Monday evening each week with a subscription to PFW Online ($54.95 for a full year). On Thursdays, we'll present the editors' late-week picks, and you can get those as part of a subscription to the Handicapping Inner Circle ($89.95 for the 2010 season).
Home team in caps. Asterisk (*) denotes team will cover pointspread but lose game. Boldface selection indicates best bet. Some Over/Unders not available.
