Playbook picks: Which winless team(s) will prevail?

Helmets off to Joe Theismann, the only Playbook analyst who correctly predicted the Broncos would improve to 5-0 last week. The Chiefs, who pushed the Cowboys to overtime, nearly made him look like a regular “Norman Einstein.”

The big question this week is whether any of the winless teams will break through. Sterling Sharpe likes St. Louis to get its first win, Brian Baldinger thinks the Titans to upend the Patriots, and Theismann is sticking with those Chiefs over his former team, the Redskins. Theismann also likes the Buccaneers.
