New York Jets @ Buffalo - No reason, I had to pick a winner.
Detroit @ Cincinnati - For obvious reasons.
Philadelphia @ Atlanta - Last chance for Atlanta to get into the playoff race.
Tampa Bay @ Carolina - See the reason for the first game. This game will be a major snoozefest.
Tennessee @ Indianapolis - If this game were in Tennessee, I would have gone the other way.
St. Louis @ Chicago - Who cares? A never was, against a should have been.
Dallas @ New York Football Giants - NY is running out of games, they really need this win.
Houston @ Jacksonville - Just because they're at home.
Denver at Kansas City - Denver is off the shnide, or is it shneide? Whatever, Denver is back on track.
Oakland @ Pittsburgh - My guy in Pittsburgh says that.... Oh the hell with him, he's been wrong a lot. Pittsburgh, because I said so!
New Orleans @ Washington - The "Bree's" blows North, and leaves the destruction in his wake. NO is the best team in football right now. No ands, ifs, or buts.
San Diego @ Cleveland - SD is playing some great football. Cleveland is....well, is Cleveland.
New England @ Miami - Say good night Miami, no playoffs this year.
San Francisco @ Seattle - No reason, just a hunch.
Minnesota @ Arizona - Brett Favre is having possibly the best season of his career. Vikings "D" shuts them down.
Baltimore @ Green Bay - Baltimore may be hungrier. Defense rules the day.
13-3 last week.
121-55 this year
These picks are not to be used for the purpose of gambling. Yeah, right.
STL @ CHI
TB @ CAR
OAK @ PIT NO @ WAS NE @ MIA
PHI @ ATL
TEN @ IND ............but I could see an upset
DEN @ KC ................just a hunch
DET @ CIN HOU @ JAC SD @ CLE
DAL @ NYG SF @ SEA MIN @ ARI ............both this game and the Monday game are tough calls
Bills over Jets- Honestly, I don't know who'll win this game, but I'm going with the homer pick.
Bears over Rams- Jay Cutler may be struggling, but the Rams QB's aren't exactly that much better.
Bucs over Panthers- Delhomme's hurt, and Tampa has shown signs of life in November.
Steelers over Raiders- It doesn't matter who Pittsburgh starts at QB- it's the Raiders, it's at Heinz Field, it's December. A west-coast team going East for an early start is not pretty- these facts make it even worse.
Saints over Redskins- Ramy, pray for a miracle- that's their only shot of winning.
Patriots over Dolphins- New England needs to get the taste of that Superdome shellacking out of their mouths- luckily for them, Chad Henne is not Drew Brees.
Eagles over Falcons- No Matt Ryan, no chance.
Colts over Titans- Vince Young's hot streak ends here. The Colts can stop the run- Chris Johnson may finally hit a wall.
Broncos over Chiefs- The game may be in Arrowhead, but this isn't 1995. The Chiefs are NOT the home-field beasts they used to be.
Bengals over Lions- Bigger number- Carson Palmer's passing touchdowns, or the number of sacks for the Bengals?
Texans over Jaguars- Houston has to save their season, and the Jags didn't look like world-beaters last week.
Chargers over Browns- As much as I like HD and have a soft spot for the Brownies, I NEED Gates and L.T. to deliver for my Fantasy team.
Cowboys over Giants- You can go on and on about Dallas' December struggles, but the Giants are not capable of taking advantage of that- an iffy Eli, a mediocre running attack, a bad defense- I think their season is going downhill. The ironic thing- last year, I was picking against the G-Men all the time. This year, this will be only the second time I've bet against them- and that was also against Dallas!
49ers over Seahawks- Qwest Field is not as intimidating as it used to be. San Fran's won there twice in their last three visits.
Cardinals over Vikings- Upset special. Arizona has to get back on track, and Favre's bound to have a stinker eventually.
Ravens over Packers- Ravens' defense plus Packers' offensive line equals LOL
