Playbook picks: Colts or Bolts? Tough call

The November Nine. No, it’s not just the name given to the final table at the World Series of Poker. It also represents a feat two NFL teams are trying to accomplish Sunday night.

The Chargers are going for their ninth consecutive November victory, while the Colts are aiming for their ninth consecutive November home win. Which one of those two clubs will achieve their goal?

Sterling Sharpe, Michael Lombardi, Mike Mayock and Brian Baldinger made picks this week. While Lombardi and Mayock both like the Colts to get the job done, Baldinger sides with the Chargers.

Baldinger is also an island with his picks in two other key games. He predicts the Packers and Jaguars will come out on top this week, but Lombardi and Mayock go with the Falcons and Giants.
