The Rest of the Week 12 NFL picks

Ok, ok I got roughed up a bit on Turkey Day, going just 1-2 but I am looking to rebound a bit with the games on Sunday and Monday. With that let's have at it:

The Vikings are not very good, and they will be without Adrian Peterson this week. This makes this one an easy one. I got the Falcons all day.

The Cleveland Offense cannot move the ball, and the defense is not good enough to stop the Andy Dalton attack for the entire game. The Bengals need a win to keep on marching towards the playoffs. I will take the Bengals in the battle of Ohio.

What a stinker, the Colts continue to Suck for Luck, and the Panthers get their third win. This is the second time in the last three years that the Colts have sold out their fans. If I ere a Colts fans I would be super pissed.

This is a tough one. The Texans need a win to keep on track towards a divisional championship, but they have lost QB Matt Schaub for the year. The Jaguars defense has played tough, but looks to be cracking. I do not believe in Matt Leinart at all, but I think the Texans can pull this one out unless the Jaguars team that beat the Ravens shows up on Sunday. For now I will take the Texans.

5. Buffalo Bills (5-5) at New York Jets (5-5)

There are a lot of teams right around this mark in the AFC. That means the team that wins this game gets a leg up in the playoff race. I think the Bills have made all the noise they can already, and that Rex Ryan will get the Jets motivated to win this one. I have to go with Gang Green, but this week I think I have to.

Steve Spagnuolo needs this game to keep his job. Actually he probably needs a lot more than this and Josh McDaniels should be the first Rams coach fired. However, the Cardinals are not very good. Even though the Rams have struggled though a soft spot in their schedule I don't see a way that the Cardinals can win this game.

Raheem Morris' seat has got to be heating up. The Titans are 5-5 because they beat up on bad teams. they are 4-0 against teams with a sub .500 record. This is a tough one. Two struggling teams that both need a win pretty bad. The Bucs offense is near the bottom in every key statistical category and I think that equals a Titans win.

8. Chicago Bears (7-3) at Oakland Raiders (6-4)

With a Detroit Loss the Bears could use a win to solidify their hold on a playoff spot. They are however without Jay Cutler. The Raiders are banged up but also need a win to keep their playoff chances alive. I never take a team with a new QB for the first time, and Oakland is not the nicest place to play. I'll take the Raiders in this one.

Another stink fest, but hey whatcha gonna do? The Seahawks are still tough at home, and the defense is growing into a difference making unit. The Redskins are still the Redskins and I almost always take the Sea Chickens at home.

The Eagles have an annoying tendency to blow fourth quarter leads. they have the WR corps to pick apart the Patriots mostly undrafted secondary, regardless of who starts at QB. That is not to say I have any faith in this Eagles team. I think the Patriots find a way to win this game, and cruise towards the playoffs.

The Chargers look out of place, and there are rumors Phillip Rivers is hurt. After the last three weeks it is very hard to pick against Tebowmania. I would have to be John Elway right now knowing that there is little chance this Tebow kid will ever be a traditional NFL QB. Of course, winning is what Tebow does best. Regardless of how ugly it may appear.

This one is a no brainer. The Steelers crush the Chiefs, even though I often like the Chiefs at home.

I am conflicted here, my Detroit Lions need the Giants to lose. The good news is the Saitns are coming off a bye and get an extra day to prepare for this game. The Saints have yet to lose at home and hopefully they help my Lions by beating the Giants.
