@TSFSports Week 12 NFL Picks: Stakes Is High!

(www.usatoday.com)

We’re nearly at the 3/4 mark of the NFL season. While the playoff picture looks somewhat muddled, the class teams of the league seem to be firmly in place.

The bye weeks are over, the homestretch is in sight.


Thursday, November 26, 2015

Lions 45 – Eagles 14

Panthers 33 – Cowboys 14

Bears 17 – Packers 13

Sunday, November 29, 2015

St. Louis Rams (4-6) at Cincinnati Bengals (8-2) – The Bengals have dropped two in a row after running off eight straight. The Rams are going to rely heavily on Todd Gurley win, lose or draw.

Prediction: Bengals 23 – Rams 13

Oakland Raiders (4-6) at Tennessee Titans (2-8) – The Raiders have slowed down and their playoff hopes are dwindling after losing three in a row. This should be a great showcase of two good young QBs in Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota.

Prediction: Titans 20 – Raiders 17

NY Giants (5-5) at Washington (4-6) – Washington is 4-1 at home, they seem to play to play their most impressive ball at Fed Ex Field. If the Giants can go up two games in the division it may be enough to close things out.

Prediction: Washington 27 – Giants 23

Minnesota Vikings (7-3) at Atlanta Falcons (6-4) – The sting of last week’s loss to the Packers was lessened by the Packs loss on Thursday giving the Vikes another shot at the division lead. The Falcons will be in for a tough one without leading rusher Devonta Freeman.

Prediction: Vikings 22 – Falcons 17

Buffalo Bills (5-5) at Kansas City Chiefs (5-5) – The injuries keep piling up for the Chiefs, but they keep plugging.

Prediction: Chiefs 26 – Bills 20

New Orleans Saints (4-6) at Houston Texans (5-5) – I don’t know what Drew Brees is going to show up today. I guess we can say the same for the Texans quarterback.

Prediction: Saints 24 – Texans 22

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-5) at Indianapolis Colts (5-5) – Jameis Winston is a road warrior, playing some of his best ball this season away from Raymond James Stadium. The Colts are hoping to tread water in hopes that Andrew Luck makes it back before the season ends.

Prediction: Bucs 29 – Colts 16

Miami Dolphins (4-6) at NY Jets (5-5) – The Jets were embarrassed last week by the Texans and don’t expect any sympathy from a tough Dolphins squad.

Prediction: Dolphins 24 – Jets 21

San Diego Chargers (2-8) at Jacksonville Jaguars (4-6) – Jags win big against a Chargers team that’s looking at the front door.

Prediction: Jaguars 27 – Chargers 20

Arizona Cardinals (8-2) at San Francisco 49ers (3-7) – The Cardinals might be the most complete team in the NFL.

Prediction: Cardinals 33 – Niners 13

Pittsburgh Steelers (6-4) at Seattle Seahawks (5-5) – Both teams need a win in the worst way. I’ll go with the home team here.

Prediction: Seahawks 24 – Steelers 20

New England Patriots (10-0) at Denver Broncos (8-2) – Brock Osweiler doesn’t look like the kind of player who might be overwhelmed by the magnitude of this game. I think they push the Patriots to the brink.

Prediction: Patriots 30 – Broncos 24

Monday, November 30, 2015

Baltimore Ravens (3-7) at Cleveland Browns (2-8) – After all of those great games of Sunday, this is like an unwanted dessert.

Prediction: Browns 17 – Ravens 16

Last Week: 10-4

2015 Season: 57-45
