NFL Predictions – Week 14

This is going to be quick. Straight line jammy jams.

The final four weeks of the season. Lots of great matchups for the next four weeks. I’m going with the “strongest” teams to show and prove down the stretch.

Of course I picked the Steelers at home over the Browns. I wouldn’t have picked a 27-7 final. I thought it would be closer based on their most recent game in Cleveland where the Steelers scored 21 points in the 4th quarter to pull it out. Too little, too late for the men in black.

I’m going with the Chiefs over the Ravens. The last time these teams met up, Tony Richardson had a field day running into and over Ray Lewis. The Chiefs don’t have Richardson anymore, but they still have Larry Johnson and they need this game. This is their season. Lose at home today and it’s a wrap. Kansas City 27, Baltimore 14.

The Falcons couldn’t have a better matchup today. The Bucs are reeling. Atlanta is desperate, right? Atlanta 19, Tampa Bay 17.

Minnesota in the dome at Detroit. No biggie. Vikings stuff the run and get Antoine some help over the top on Roy Williams (he’s gonna need it). Minnesota 24, Detroit 16.

Vince Young plays the Vindication Bowl and the Titans roll in Houston and the House that Steve Built. Tennessee 31, Houston 21.

Giants on the road against Carolina. Can anyone call this game? Chris Steinke Weinke starts today. That can’t be good. Giants 27, Carolina 17.

The Cowboys are big favorites over the Saints. New Orleans and my fantasy QB Drew Brees (8th Round, thank you very much) will be going into Big D without Marques Colston and Joe Horn. It doesn’t look good. But…the Saints can also line Reggie Bush out wide with Devery Henderson and Terrance Copper. I’m still not sold on Henry and Newman even though they’re having good years. I’ll roll with the upset crew and the power of a Deuce. New Orleans 38, Dallas 35.

Still not buying those Jets – even though they are winning and for sale at a low price.  Buffalo 21, Jets 20.

I’ll take the Jags.  The Colts are trying to find themselves and I suspect many of their defenders will find themselves under the feet of Fred Taylor and Maurice Jones-Drew.  Jacksonville 23, Indianapolis 18.

Eagles over Foreskins.  Blitz happy Eagles scare the rookie.  Philadelphia 20, Washington 10.

The Bengals had better have the necessary respect for the Raiders.  I don’t think they do.  Raiders finally score another big upset after coming close for so many weeks.  Raiders 21, Bengals 10.

I like the Dolphins over the Patriots.  Miami 17, New England 16.

The 49ers are on the outside looking in – and trying to get into the playoffs.  Easy and cheesy at home.  San Francisco 38, Green Bay 24.

Hawks eat Cards.  Seattle 31, Arizona 28.

Chargers over Broncos.  SD at home and getting healthier on defense.  I like ’em.  San Diego 41, Denver 21.

Chicago and the hated Rams.  Rex on the road in a dome against an underwhelming defense.  Bears D minus Tommie Harris and a Grown Ass Man at running back.  Stephen Jackson could go for 150 and the Rams will still lose because Bulger is in a funk and the Bears D/ST can still put up 14 points.  Devin Hester could get to the house 2x.  Chicago 24, St. Louis 21.

And that’s the week that will be.

  1. 7-7. TD Karney. If you don’t respect the Saints right now, you haven’t been playing this game or coaching this game. The Saints are ballin’. Gotta give ’em some love.

  2. saints appear to be the best team in the nfc…which of course last week was dallas. lets see who the best team in the nfc is next week. bottom line…doesnt matter who the best team is anywhere right now. lets see who the best team is in early february.

  3. true…flavor of the week thing is out of control across the league…but i picked the saints to win 10 games in june – so this isn’t news for me. i can’t even imagine this offense with donte stallworth.
