NFL Picks – Week 12

24 11 2009

After a rough week last week we rebounded this week for a nice 12-4 last week. Now that we’ve got our swagger back, let’s get down to what really matters.

Tried finding one of Stafford in uniform, but she's too hot to not post.

– Green Bay over Detroit. We’re too lazy to back this up, but it seems like Detroit plays better with Stafford. Add to that Calvin Johnson being up in the air, and we’ll take the Pack.

– Dallas over Oakland. While Oakland certainly looked better against Cincy, we’re going to keep riding Dallas until they collapse. And they’re at home.

– Giants over Denver. Let’s get this out of the way…Denver isn’t making the playoffs. 6-0 start was nice, but they look like we all thought they would now. And the Giants need this one.

– Atlanta over Tampa Bay. Tampa just fired another coordinator (DC Jim Bates). Atlanta is coming off a tough loss at home. This one could get ugly.

– Miami over Buffalo. Buffalo has hung around in the last couple games, but we’ll take the streaking Dolphins who are still technically alive for a playoff berth.

– Cincinnati over Cleveland. I can’t believe I’m writing this, but the Bengals are better than they played against Oakland. They just got caught up in hearing how great they were. Bounce back week.

– Seattle over St. Louis. Seattle is one of the easiest picks. They beat who they should beat, and lose to who they should lose. They should beat the Rams, and they will.

– Carolina over the Jets. We think the Jets might be playing for a draft spot (read: tanking). And Carolina should be able to run all over the Kris Jenkins-less Jets front.

– Philadelphia over Washington. Down to their third string back, the Redskins are going to have to put the game in the hands of Jason Campbell. And that’s not a good thing.

– Indy over Houston. We’re thinking that Monday Night loss might linger for the Texans. We also think Indy is due for a good performance off a string of decent, but not spectacular games.

Don't Look Now But...He's Back.

– San Diego over Kansas City. Don’t look now, but San Diego is rolling again. And LT’s looked like a living person the last couple of weeks.

– San Francisco over Jacksonville. The game of the weekend for smash-mouth football fans. We’ll take Singletary’s motivational skills in what should be a close game.

– Minnesota over Chicago. We’re going to set the over/under on Cutler picks in this game at 3. We’ll take the over. And a huge game for Purple Jesus.

– Tennessee over Arizona. The Titans seem to be rolling, with the combination of Vince Young and Chris Johnson. With Warner’s status still up in the air, we’ll take the minor upset.

– Baltimore over Pittsburgh. Big Ben is supposedly playing, but he’s not going to


be at 100%. This is another game that Baltimore needs, and we like a desperate Baltimore team.

– Patriots over Saints. We’ve gone on record as saying that the Saints don’t lose at home, and trust us – we don’t want to pick the Patriots. But the one question we keep asking is about the Saints defense. Who covers Moss and Welker??? Given that we’ll take the Pats, reluctantly.

Last Week: 12-4

Overall: 102-59
