Last Week: 10-6
New England Patriots at Detroit Lions,
The Patriots have been playing like the best team in football recently, especially on the road. Going to Detroit on Turkey day, I expect them to keep the ball rolling. It won’t be an easy task, but I do expect the Patriots to win.
Patriots 35-Lions 31
New Orleans Saints at Dallas Cowboys,
It seems like Reggie Bush is doubtful this week against the Cowboys.
With the Cowboys winning back-to-back matches, many would say they are looking good enough to prevail against the Superbowl champions. The Saints can’t afford to drop another game but the Cowboys are playing the party poopers for the rest of the season. I will go with the’gun slinging’Cowboys.
Cowboys 34-Saints 33
Cincinnati Bengals at N.Y. Jets,
The Bengals are funny to me. I doubt I will waste my Thanksgiving evening watching this game.
Jets 24-Bengals 10
Green Bay Packers at Atlanta Falcons,
The Packers go to Atlanta to face the red hot Falcons. The Dirty Birds have looked good at home and I expect them to even look better against the Packers. Many will call this a slugfest, but I say this will be a defensive battle. Falcons pull one out with late game heroics from Matt Ryan.
Falcons 23-Packers 20
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Baltimore Ravens,
The Buccaneers are playing great thanks to Coach Raheem Morris. The Bucs look motivated and inspired to play great football. They will need a lot of motivation against this defensively disciplined Ravens team. The game will be close but I think the Bucs will drop one on the road.
Ravens 17-Buccaneers 13
Pittsburgh Steelers at Buffalo Bills,
The Bills came away with a huge win Sunday against the hilarious Cincinnati Bengals. With the Steelers defense coming to Buffalo, look for the Steelers to take control of this game early. The Bills can only hope to rebuild to be a threat for next year.
Steelers 31-Bills 13
Philadelphia Eagles at Chicago Bears,
The best QB in the league Michael Vick took his talents to Chicago to see if he can keep the ball rolling against the Bears. Being a mobile QB, I feel Vick will give the Bears nightmares. Julius Peppers will be up to the challenge to stop this high-powered Eagles offense, but I do not think he will have much success.
Eagles 27-Bears 17
Carolina Panthers at Cleveland Browns,
The Panthers record says it all about their football team. On the flip, the Browns record says nothing about their football team. Browns win easily.
Browns 24-Panthers 9
Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans,
The Titans seem to be a miserable football team right now. With rookie Rusty Smith under center at QB for the Titans, I would guess they would run the ball excessively. The Texans are horrible defensively, but I think they will be good enough to slip by the Titans.
Texans 24-Titans 13
Jacksonville Jaguars at N.Y. Giants,
The Jaguars have had some lucky breaks over the last month. This weekend won’t be so lucky for them up in Giant Stadium. The defense of the Giants will have a field day on the Jags. Added to that, Eli Manning and his receivers will have a field day against these Jaguars defense. G-Men!
Giants 31-Jaguars 20
Minnesota Vikings at Washington Redskins,
The Vikings look to get back to playing simple football and having fun doing so, while the Redskins try to settle tensions in the locker room and bring talents together to win a ball game. I say the new look Vikings win this one. It worked for the Cowboys, and I say that it will work for the Vikings.
Vikings 24-Redskins 23
Kansas City Chiefs at Seattle Seahawks,
The Chiefs go to Seattle to battle the Seahawks. As we know, a lot of strange things happen in the northwest, but this week it will be business as usual for the Chiefs who are trying to stay near the top of the AFC West.
Chiefs 20-Seahawks 17
Miami Dolphins at Oakland Raiders,
The Dolphins had a disappointing performance against the Browns last week Thursday. This weekend, they will be leaving everything on the field in Oakland. The Dolphins pull out a thriller!
Dolphins 34-Raiders 31
St. Louis Rams at Denver Broncos,
The Broncos look to stay near the top of their division and put themselves in a place to slip into the playoffs by next month. The Rams look to do the same in the NFC West. The Broncos will not lose this game at home.
Broncos 20-Rams 17
San Diego Chargers at Indianapolis Colts,
Chargers vs. Colts!Who wins?Rivers or Manning?Manning!
Colts 38-Chargers 34
San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals,
I still believe the 49ers have a great chance at taking their division. I think they will do it starting Monday night.
49ers 20-Cardinals 15
