My picks to win are in bold.
Note: The Thursday night game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Atlanta Falcons has been excluded.
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
New York Jets – Resounding and much needed win against a depleted Chiefs squad as they keep their playoff hopes alive.
New England Patriots – Got all they could handle from the Redskins but Brady and Gronkowski proved to be too much in the end.
Buffalo Bills – Falling apart, crumbling, disintegrating, etc.
Miami Dolphins – Winning ways come to an end as Vick spoils the party. Read more…

Note: The Thursday night game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns has been excluded.

Houston Texans @ Cincinnati Bengals
Minnesota Vikings @ Detroit Lions
New Orleans Saints @ Tennessee Titans
Philadelphia Eagles @ Miami Dolphins
Kansas City Chiefs @ New York Jets
New England Patriots @ Washington Redskins
Atlanta Falcons @ Carolina Panthers
Tampa Bay Bucs @ Jacksonville Jaguars
Indianapolis Colts @ Baltimore Ravens
Chicago Bears @ Denver Broncos

Oakland Raiders @ Green Bay Packers
Buffalo Bills @ San Diego Chargers
New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys
St. Louis Rams @ Seattle Seahawks
*Last Week: 11-5
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
My picks to win are in bold.
Note: The Thursday night game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Seattle Seahawks has been excluded.
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
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!
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
