Well, the regular season has entered it’s final 3 weeks and much of it is still muddled. Like this first game ……
(8-4-0) Bengals A few weeks ago, I wouldn’t have hesitated to pick the Colts in this game. But, it looks like the Colts have hit a wall and the Bengals remain a tough team. And they’re at home. Cincy takes this one.
(9-3-0) Patriots This should be a cake walk for the Pats. Look for Brady to light it up in this potential yawner.
(5-7-0) Jets These are two fairly evenly matched teams. But, the Raiders are playing at the opposite coast, and the Jets, in theory, still have something to play for.
(9-3-0) Chiefs Can the Chiefs get back on a winning track? I think so. Though, the Redskins are much tougher than their 3-9 record indicates, so they Chiefs need to come in serious.
(6-6-0) Ravens How does a team with a back like Peterson dwell on the bottom? It baffles me. Regardless, the Ravens need this game and I’m pretty sure they’ll have it.
(5-6-1) Packers Rodgers is out for this game. It shouldn’t matter. They’re playing one of the biggest disappointments of the year. The Pack does need this game if there’s any thought of post-season play.
(3-9-0) Buccaneers The Bucs seem to have hit their pace and the Bills seem to be working their way down.
(6-6-0) Dolphins Okay, on this, I’m picking with my heart and not any real reasoning. Still, Miami has shown flashes of brilliance while Pitt has shown flashes of horrible play. The game basically depends on which Steeler team shows up. I look for Wallace to play big against his former team.
(7-5-0) Eagles Huge game with playoff implications. It looks like the Eagles have settled down to be a very good team. Fun fact ….. I read the other day where Phillies crime rate dramatically increases if the Eagles lose. I think they’ll win this one.
(10-2-0) Broncos About the only thing the Titan have going for them is the fact that Manning doesn’t like playing in the cold. Shouldn’t matter, the Broncs should run over the Titans as they try to work into post season form.
(7-5-0) Cardinals I can’t figure out either one of these teams. Some days, they both look great, other days, not so much. Arizona should take this one as a rare post season appearance seems within their grasp.
(8-4-0) 49ers This is the game of the week and I’m picking this upset …. well, it’s sort of an upset. SF has Crabtree back just at the right time. This promises to be a great game with fierce physical play. I’m hoping I can watch this one.
(5-7-0) Chargers Well, this is last call for both teams. They either win today, or their post season hopes are gone. The Giants have made good progress over the season, but, I don’t think they’ll get past the Chargers. We’ll see.
(9-3-0) Saints Well, the Saints were embarrassed in their home by the Seahawks. While this game has that same potential, I don’t think they’re going to let this happen again. Should be a fantastic game, though.
(7-5-0) Cowboys Well, this is familiar territory for the Cowboys in that each year they seem to find themselves in the same spot…… on the bubble. They’re going into Chicago to play a tough Bears team. This should be a classic and worth the watch.
(2-11-0) Texans 20
(4-9-0) Jaguars 27 The Jags beat the other most disappointing team of the season.
Well, those are my picks. What do you think?
