AARON BROOKS, SAINTS QUARTERBACK: "I like Baltimore 7-3, in a blowout."
RICKY WILLIAMS, SAINTS RUNNING BACK: "New York Giants 28-14, because the Giants are making the big plays."
COREY DILLON, BENGALS RUNNING BACK: "I'll take Baltimore 21-14 ... check that, let's make it 14-7."
LAMAR THOMAS, DOLPHINS RECEIVER: "Give me Baltimore ... ooooh ... man ... Jessie (Armstead) and Mike (Barrow, both teammates with Thomas at the University of Miami) are going to be mad at me ... man ... 17-16 ... ooooh, Mike and Jessie ... Mike and Jessie ... ooooh, they're gonna be mad ... okay, let's change that. I'll take the Giants 17-16. I can't go against my boys."
RON PITTS, FOX ANALYST: "I'm split, I really am. It's a tough call. Giants. They have the momentum and the quick-strike ability and they are scoring points. And in the fourth quarter, Kerry Collins' numbers are much better than Dilfer's. I can't give you a score, though. I'm no good with that."
TERRY JACKSON, 49ERS RUNNING BACK: "It's too close to call. I just love that Ravens defense, but I have to go with my man Izey Ike (Hilliard). He'll have a big day. In overtime, by a field goal, 24-21."
WHITE SOX PITCHER DAVID WELLS: "How about Giants 17-10? I gotta cover the under, man."
