NFL Week 15 Predictions

December 17, 2011 1 comment

My picks to win are in bold.

Note: The Thursday night game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Atlanta Falcons has been excluded.

Week 15

Dallas Cowboys @ Tampa Bay Bucs

Bucs are coming off a drubbing by the Jaguars of all teams! Boys need this win badly.

Washington Redskins @ New York Giants

G-Men are coming off of an emotional victory in Dallas. They need this game to hold onto first place.

Miami Dolphins @ Buffalo Bills

Bills are on a 6 game skid and the Dolphins should come out fired up and yearning for a win for their new coach.

Seattle Seahawks @ Chicago Bears

Bears are in disarray, while the Seahawks and Marshawn Lynch have been playing quality football.

Tennessee Titans @ Indianapolis Colts

Divisional matchup so anything can happen, but I can’t pick the winless Colts.

Green Bay Packers @ Kansas City Chiefs

Could be a trap game for the Packers, but I don’t think Aaron Rodgers will let the Pack suffer a letdown.

Cincinnati Bengals @ St. Louis Rams

Bengals are great against teams below .500, not so much against teams above .500.

New Orleans Saints @ Minnesota Vikings

Saints should put a ton of points on the board against a shaky secondary. Plus, their playing indoors.

Carolina Panthers @ Houston Texans

Texans have been winning despite the injuries, while Panthers consistently blow leads.

Detroit Lions @ Oakland Raiders

Carson Palmer has thrown 5 interceptions in the last two games, both losses.

New England Patriots @ Denver Broncos

Should be a good game but Tom Brady and the Patriots offense will prove to be too much for Tebow in the end.

New York Jets @ Philadelphia Eagles

Great game against two teams fighting for their playoff lives. Eagles win because their at home and because of Mike Vick.

Cleveland Browns @ Arizona Cardinals

Cardinals are on a roll recently, plus Colt McCoy is out.

Baltimore Ravens @ San Diego Chargers

Chargers have won two in a row, but Ravens usually come to play against above average teams.

*Last Week: 11-4

**Season: 139-66

Buffalo Bills – Falling apart, crumbling, disintegrating, etc.

Miami Dolphins – Winning ways come to an end as Vick spoils the party. Read more…

What We Learned: NFL Week 13

December 7, 2011 1 comment

AFC East

New York Jets – Opened it up in the 4th quarter. Much needed victory.

New England Patriots – Had a little more trouble with the Colts than anyone expected but a win is a win and their in the driver’s seat.

Buffalo Bills – Have now lost 5 in a row since Fitzpatrick’s extension.

Miami Dolphins – Look like a buzz-saw as they have won 4 or their last 5 games.

AFC West

Denver Broncos – Tebow and the Broncos complete another second half comeback and find themselves atop the AFC West.

Kansas City Chiefs – A Hail Mary touchdown pass at the end of the first half proved to be the game winner, who would have guessed that.

Oakland Raiders – Terrible performance in Miami and lost their grasp on the division in the process.

San Diego Chargers – Finally, a win!

AFC North

Baltimore Ravens – Stop everything, they avoided a letdown!

Pittsburgh Steelers – Looking more and more like the Steelers of old as the season progresses.

Cleveland Browns – Someone needs to tell the receivers that they have to actually catch and hold onto the ball.

Cincinnati Bengals – Showed their youth and inexperience against the pride of the AFC North.

AFC South

Houston Texans – Great win against a quality opponent. Hopefully Andre Johnson isn’t hurt too seriously though.

Indianapolis Colts – Great effort down the stretch but a winless season looks to be inevitable.

Tennessee Titans – CJ finally put up back to back fantastic performances, look out for the Titans.

Jacksonville Jaguars – New coach same old result.

NFC East

New York Giants – Valiant effort but fell just short.

Dallas Cowboys – That clock mismanagement sums up the Cowboys over the past decade. Why didn’t they call a timeout after the Dez Bryant catch and why are you icing your own kicker?!

Philadelphia Eagles – The Eagles are officially done after that performance…pathetic.

Washington Redskins – Played well for 3 quarters, too bad the game lasts 4.

NFC West

San Francisco 49ers – Another dominating win against an inferior opponent, no letdowns.

St. Louis Rams – Um, yea…

Arizona Cardinals – Defense is much improved and Kolb is back. Look like a playoff team’s worst nightmare.

Seattle Seahawks – I would not want to play the Seahawks looking at the way Marshawn Lynch is playing right now, beast mode.

NFC North

Chicago Bears – First Jay Cutler, now Matt Forte. The Bears playoff chances just took a major hit.

Green Bay Packers – Barely cleared their last hurdle and should cruise to an undefeated record.

Detroit Lions – Lost 2 in a row but favorable schedule the rest of the way with the exception of the Packers.

Minnesota Vikings – Percy Harvin was sensational but Ponder made a critical mistake in crunch time.

NFC South

Atlanta Falcons – Horrible loss against a Schaub-less Texans squad. Extremely inconsistent.

New Orleans Saints – Scary, scary, scary!…at home. We’ll see what they look like outside in January.

Tampa Bay Bucs – Haven’t been winning with Freeman, definitely not going to win without him.

Carolina Panthers – Cam looks like a seasoned vet. He’s gonna be gooooood!

Note: The Thursday night game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Seattle Seahawks has been excluded.

Week 13

Tennessee Titans @ Buffalo Bills

CJ finally has back to back 100+ yard games.

Kansas City Chiefs @ Chicago Bears

I like the Bears defense against a new quarterback in Kyle Orton learning a new system.

Oakland Raiders @ Miami Dolphins

Black and Silver are 4-1 on the road this season and need this win with Green Bay and Detroit upcoming.

Denver Broncos @ Minnesota Vikings

AP is out, and you can’t bet against Tebow right now.

Indianapolis Colts @ New England Patriots

This will be an absolute smack-fest.

Cincinnati Bengals @ Pittsburgh Steelers

I love the future for the young Bengals, but they’re just not ready yet.

Carolina Panthers @ Tampa Bay Bucs

Bucs are giving up 140 ypg and 5.1 ypc this season. Expect Newton, Williams, and Stewart to pound the rock.

New York Jets @ Washington Redskins

This is a MUST win for the Jets if they have any hopes of making the playoffs.

Atlanta Falcons @ Houston Texans

Falcons post the league’s best rush defense and that’s all the Texans have now that TJ Yates is under center.

Baltimore Ravens @ Cleveland Browns

Ravens have won 6 in a row against the Browns.

Dallas Cowboys @ Arizona Cardinals

Romo and the Boys have won 4 in a row and should make it 5 against another inferior opponent.

St. Louis Rams @ San Francisco 49ers

Niners should have no problem here.

Detroit Lions @ New Orleans Saints

Saints are almost impossible to defeat at home.

Green Bay Packers @ New York Giants

Giants are without Osi and just got lit up by the Saints.

San Diego Chargers @ Jacksonville Jaguars

Toss up here.

*Last Week: 12-4

**Season: 117-57

What We Learned: NFL Week 12

AFC East

New York Jets – A win is a win, but what an ugly win it was.

New England Patriots – Despite the revolving door in the secondary the defense continues to progress.

Buffalo Bills – Fitzpatrick and the Bills are 0-4 since his contract extension.

Miami Dolphins – Another close, tough loss. Read more…

My picks to win are in bold.

Note: The Thursday night game between the New York Jets and Denver Broncos has been excluded…Tebow = WINNER!

Week 12

Green Bay Packers @ Detroit Lions

Should be a great game, but how can you pick against the Packers.

Miami Dolphins @ Dallas Cowboys

Dolphins are hot, but Cowboys usually play well on Thanksgiving.

San Francisco 49ers @ Baltimore Ravens

Niners are treaveling east on a short week, but the Ravens are too inconsistent to trust.

Minnesota Vikings @ Atlanta Falcons

Falcons should win easily as the Vikings will probably be without AP.

Cleveland Browns @ Cincinnati Bengals

Bengals snap their 2 game losing streak and pound the offensively-inept Browns.

Tampa Bay Bucs @ Tennessee Titans

I like the Bucs more than I do the Hasselbeck-less Titans.

Carolina Panthers @ Indianapolis Colts

Panthers by default.

Arizona Cardinals @ St. Louis Rams

Cardinals’ quarterback situation is in shambles.

Buffalo Bills @ New York Jets

Bills are struggling and just lost Fred Jackson for the season, plus the Jets are desperate for a win.

Houston Texans @ Jacksonville Jaguars

The running game and defense should be more than enough to beat the Jags.

Chicago Bears @ Oakland Raiders

Gotta go with the Raiders at home with Caleb Hanie starting at quarterback for the Bears.

Washington Redskins @ Seattle Seahawks

Not gonna let the Seahawks burn me again.

New England Patriots @ Philadelphia Eagles

Vince Young can’t keep up with Tom Brady.

Denver Broncos @ San Diego Chargers

Chargers have lost 5 in a row, plus you can’t bet against Tebow.

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Kansas City Chiefs

Chiefs picked up Orton, but I don’t think he’ll start this week.

New York Giants @ New Orleans Saints

Saints are virtually impossible to beat at home.

*Last Week: 10-3

**Season: 105-53
