Browns @ Steelers
I’m pretty sure the majority of us chose the Steelers to beat the Browns Thursday night.
Vikings @ Lions
None of these teams has momentum. With AP (ankle) and Ponder (hip) questionable, they won’t that healthy if they play anyway. Suh is out, but Detroit is still the better team.
Saints @ Titans
The (9-3) Saints are marching at the right time (won 5 of last 6). CJ is back on track and Titans are tougher at home, but they don’t have enough on either side of the ball.
Eagles @ Dolphins
Philly gets Vick back in the lineup and are still a talented team. Miami has been revived offensively and the defense is stout. Despite momentum, I think the Eagles are a better team and find a little bit of success this week.
Chiefs @ Jets
This one could be a slug fest. Solid defenses, running games, and questionable quarterbacks. Rex and his Jets, because they can actually score without a hail mary.
Patriots @ Redskins
The Patriots head to the Nation’s Capital. The Redskins could make this game interesting, but Tom Brady > Rex Grossman.
Falcons @ Panthers
The Falcons continue their identity crisis as the Panthers learn to finish games.
Buccaneers @ Jaguars
The Jags have a rookie quarterback with an interim head coach. The Buccaneers have more talent and I’ll pick TB in the battle of Florida.
Colts @ Ravens
I’ll roll with any team playing the Colts this year. Plus, Ravens trying to stay ahead of the Steelers for the division lead.
Bears @ Broncos
This one is entirely momentum and timing. The Bears are down their quarterback, running back, and can’t put points on the scoreboard. The Broncos are rolling and they should snatch sole possession of the division today.
49ers @ Cardinals
San Francisco can contain Larry Fitzgerald like many teams have (by double/triple teaming him). Arizona is inconsistent and the 49ers pound you, score enough, and win.
Raiders @ Packers
I almost want to pick every opponent Green Bay plays the rest of the season, just because I think their Super Bowl repeat chances would benefit from a loss. I just don’t see it happening at home despite Oakland’s nice comeback season.
Bills @ Chargers
Buffalo probably has half their team on the injury report. The talented Chargers will take advantage of another team down in the dumps.
Giants @ Cowboys
I like DeMarco Murray, but don’t trust Jason Garrett to stick with him and Romo needs to lean on the ground game since they don’t score much. I trust Tom Coughlin, Eli Manning, and their defense more.
Rams @ Seahawks
Seahawks are carving their niche, had extra time to prepare, coming off a big win, and are at home with the 12th man crowd. I’d rather not be negative towards the Rams so we’ll leave it at that.
