LOCK OF THE WEEK

Which of your picks do you feel strongest about and why?

Hub Arkush: I hope I’m not jumping back on the bandwagon too soon, but the Packers’ rout of Houston felt like the start of something big, much bigger than the Rams.

Keith Schleiden: A well-rested Bears team has been pushing all the right buttons in recent weeks and should easily handle a Lions team that was way overrated entering 2012.

Mike Holbrook: The Rams have been extremely competitive, but they haven’t faced an offense like the Packers. I can see them playing well and still losing by a TD.

Dan Arkush: Something tells me the Niners will bounce back with a flourish like they did after losing to the Vikes in Week Three and totally kick the Seahawks’ butts.

Eric Edholm: The Texans are emotionally bruised after the loss to the Packers, but those wounds will heal. The Ravens’ injuries will not — and they’ll be housed at Houston.

Mike Wilkening: I’ll take the Ravens, banged-up defense and all. This is a lot of points for the Texans to cover, and they may be a little off form. Baltimore is not going to fold.

Dan Parr: I think the Packers are a team that’s determined to get on a roll after a rocky start. Aaron Rodgers and Co. will win by at least a touchdown at St. Louis.

Kevin Fishbain: Predicting a hangover loss for Seattle and a bounce-back win for San Francisco. The 49ers should bottle up Seattle’s offense and get their run game back on track.

Arthur Arkush: I don’t see the Jaguars having as much success coming out of the bye as the Raiders did, when they almost upset Atlanta in their best performance to date.
