Here are our players' Week 9 underdog picks

When I was a kid, there was a recurring ad on the radio for an auto racetrack, in which the announcer would shout "Sunday! Sunday! Sunnnnnndayyyyy!" over and over. I still hear that ad in my head now and then as I gather up the weekly predictions of the players in our charity pro football underdog pool. Here's what they've decided about this week's slate of games. There's a fair amount of difference of opinion:

8.5  ARIZONA at Cleveland – Evil O, J-Dawg, Vegasbaby5

8  CHICAGO at New Orleans – JC, SteveO, Man Without a Plan

5.5  SEATTLE at Baltimore – Dangeruss, andypdx

5  MINNESOTA at Atlanta – Linda, Beakie, Gordon, Air, Oredogger, Shoeshine Boy

3.5  LOS ANGELES RAMS at Green Bay – Stephen F., The Mortician, Bad Picker

3.5  WASHINGTON at New England – Howler

3  BUFFALO at Cincinnati – King of Kings, Kosar19, Mojo, PDXileinOmaha

3  CAROLINA vs. Indianapolis – Annie B.

3  TAMPA BAY at Houston – PdxTrojan, Meow

Nobody chose these lowly 'dogs:

3  DALLAS at Philadelphia

3  NEW YORK JETS vs. Los Angeles Chargers (Monday, pick still due Sunday, 10:00 a.m. PST)

3  TENNESSEE at Pittsburgh (Thursday, unsuccessful)

2.5  MIAMI vs. Kansas City (in Germany, Sunday, 6:30 a.m. PST)

2.5  NEW YORK GIANTS at Las Vegas

IMPORTANT NOTE: This post has been updated to show all the picks for the week.
