(Some Guy)   The Chiefs are favored by 20.5 points against The Jets on Sunday, but it's only the ninth largest NFL spread ever. Can you guess the top eight?   (sportsbettingdime.com) divider line

The 2007 Patriots appear as favorites on the list of biggest NFL point spreads twice, speaking to the utter dominance of this squad during their undefeated regular season.

They were killing teams early on, but things got a little tougher towards the end as all their opponents were motivated to win or prove themselves.

The Pats have never been a dominating team. They were just smart and knew how to get to the end of the game with the lead.

Yes, I await your cries of cheating. It's all you have. Think about it...the NFL was crazy targeted on the Pats for little infractions. You'd think they would stop the Pats at some point over the last two decades.

So they were really good at cheating or, like everyone always said, they're really bad at it because they kept getting caught.

But somehow they kept winning.

This will be their first losing season since 2000. And they might still make the playoffs.

They haven't even been .500 during that time.

Haven't read the article yet, but I think I remember a 28 pt Colts Jags or Pats Jags spread from about 5 yrs ago, that was covered.

I remember -27 when the Jags visited the Broncos with Manning at QB.

I just hope both teams go out there and have fun.

Dude, shut up. 
They cheated and played in an easy division. Both of which didn't matter much but were factors. 


But anyway back to the article. Here's some mud against the wall.

A couple have to be from the Pats over the awful AFC Least teams. 
1 or 2 others are PeyPey Colts over the awful AFC Souf. 
Maybe 1 Rocky Mountain PeyPeys over the Raiders. 
Saints over someone in 2009.
1989 49ers over the Rams or something.
85 Bears over the Packers. 
98 Vikings over someone.

Bills beat the Raiders.
Chiefs lost to the Raiders.
Bills struggled vs Jets, but in the end beat them by 1 score.
Chiefs will lose to the Jets.

Can you guess the top eight?

The rest of the Jets' season?

Exactly. That was the point of TFA, among all those games only one team covered a 20+ point spread.

I remember the Lions being down 21 points to the Colts (?).  They didn't beat the spread, I think they lost by 40.

Just read the article and I guess I was wrong.

Tampa is well represented.

I assumed the list would include the Patriots a few times as favs, and Buccaneers a few times as dogs. Not disappointed.
