Indianpolis vs Tennessee Pick: Titans
This one is hard to choose. The Colts get shellacked by the Rams at home who the Titans beat, while the Titans lose to arguable the worst team in the NFL (Jags) at home. The Titans establish the run game early, while their defense makes enough plays to win against Andrew Luck.
New York Jets vs Buffalo Pick: Jets
The Jets use their running game to wear down the Bills defense. The Jets aren’t as good as their record, but a good defense and solid running game hide their flaws at home against the BIlls.
Baltimore vs Chicago Pick: Ravens
The Bears seem to have some of the worst injury luck year in and out and they catch the Ravens coming off a big win against the Bengals. Look for this game to be close and really could go either way.
Cleveland vs Cincinnati Pick: Bengals
The Bengals have been what I would call a successful enigma. Every time you think they are over the hump, they take a nice steamy Bengal dump right in the middle of the field. This week they beat the inferior Browns.
Washington vs Philadelphia Pick: Eagles
They Eagles have been good as of late. The Redskins can’t seem to overcome their poor defense, even as RG3 plays better.
Detroit vs Pittsburgh Pick: Lions
The Lions are beginning to look like one of the best teams in the NFC as they sit atop the tough NFC North. The Steelers are a teams that appears to be in transition, with an aging defense and inefficient offense. The Lions win big
Atlanta vs Tampa Bay Pick: Bucs
Yes the Bucs win two games in a row; the Falcons have been that bad.
Arizona vs Jacksonville Picks: Cards
The whole year I have made a mockery of the Jags and then this past week they beat our own Titans. I still like the Cards to win.
Oakland vs Houston Pick: Texans
The Texans finally win one with new QB Case Keenum against the Raiders at home. The Raiders with out TP and DM in the backfield have no shot.
San Diego vs Miami Pick: Chargers
The Chargers have been one of the surprise teams in the AFC, with the resurgence of Philip Rivers. Rivers smells blood in Miami and takes advantage of the dysfunctional Dolphins.
San Francisco vs New Orleans Pick: Saints
The 49ers find themselves in trouble in New Orleans, as the Saints are one of the best home. Drew Brees is able to have a big day against the formidable 49er defense; while the 49er passing offense continues to sputter.
Green Bay vs New York Giants Pick: Giants
The Packers are in serious trouble until Aaron Rodgers returns; their depth a QB bites them in the tail this weekend against the Giants.
Minnesotta vs Seattle Pick: Seahawks
The Seahawks eat whoever the Vikings QB is for dinner.
Kansas City vs Denver Pick: Broncos
In the game of the week the Broncos prevail over the unbeaten Chiefs. A hobbled Payton Manning comes up huge, as the Chiefs defense faces the best offense it has seen all season by a long shot.
New England vs Carolina Pick: Patriots
I believe the Panthers are for real, but Monday night against the Pats, even at home, this is what Tom Brady does. The Patriots pick up a huge road win against the Panthers and their stellar defense.
