Old friend Keenan Singleton, chimed in with a tweet about how Justin's last name would be pronounced down in the Big Easy, triggering our memory of this classic George Costanza exchange, involving another Bayou QB.

Dolphins and Bills always tend to play close games, Josh Allen pulls this one out late, but the underdog Dolphins keep it close and cover.
Chargers open at the new SoFi Stadium in Carson, getting eight and a half. With no fans, they avoid the media narrative about their sparse LA support. They'll do just enough to stay within a TD of the Chiefs, who'll have an extended layoff.

Los Angeles Chargers (+8.5) vs. Kansas City
Las Vegas (+6) vs. New Orleans
