Week 11 NFL Picks

We are jumping right into the games today. Not much to say, but Thanksgiving is this Thursday and I could not be happier. Sierra Nevada Celebration Ales for all. (HOME TEAM IN CAPS):

Raiders (+1) vs. LIONS
I know the Raiders have an issue coming east, but Detroit is not that "East".

FALCONS (-4.5) vs. Colts
No Andrew Luck and the Falcons get back on track. The points scare me, but I think the Falcons are too good.

Jets (-3) vs. TEXANS
This is going to be a defensive struggle where points are going to be tough to come by. Hopefully the Jets defense shows up today. Fitz will struggle today and hopefully the thumb isn't that big of a deal.Jets win, 17-13.

EAGLES (-6) vs. Buccaneers
Mark Sanchez gets another crack at starting. Here's to hoping he doesn't kill Eagles fans with another last drive interception.

BEARS (+1) vs. Broncos
No Peyton for the Broncos. The Bears can score enough to overcome their defensive ineptitude.

RAVENS (-2.5) vs. Rams
This is going to be a stinker. Both teams are disappointing this year.

Cowboys (-1.5) vs. DOLPHINS
Romo is back!! And because of that, the Cowboys win,

Redskins (+7.5) vs. PANTHERS
Give me the points.

CHARGERS (+3) vs. Chiefs
The Chargers are 2-7. Really? They win today at home.

SEAHAWKS (-13.5) vs. 49ers
The Seahawks are getting on track at the right time. Although a loss last week against the Cardinals hurt, the Niners are just what the doctor ordered to get back on track.

Packers (-1) vs. VIKINGS
Shootout alert. The Packers are going to score and they are not going to stop Adrian Peterson. So that equals points. Pack win to regain control of the NFC North.

Bengals (+4.5) vs. CARDINALS
This will be a very good game. I think the Cards are due for a letdown coming off the big win last week, and the Bengals need a rebound.

PATRIOTS (-7.5) vs. Bills
No way Brady doesn't have a big game here. Just no way. MNF and at home. Lock it in.

This Week: 1-0
Last Week: 6-8
Season: 61-79-6

Until next time.

Week 11 Quick Pick

JAGUARS (-3) vs. Titans
A stinker tonight on Thursday Night Football. A draft pick game. I do think however, there will be some points tonight, but unfortunately the uniforms are going to be terrible. Consider yourself warned. Jags win 34-24.

Until next time.

Week 10 NFL Picks

Not much to discuss with the Jets blowing a game on Thursday night to the Bills and Rex Ryan. Rex, did however, look like he won the Super Bowl. Maybe it was, for him.

Here are my picks (HOME TEAM IN CAPS):

PACKERS (-10.5) vs. Lions
Aaron Rodgers has a day.

Cowboys (-1) vs. BUCCANEERS
Dez and Run DMC have big games. They are just biding time until Romo comes back. They can't fall further behind in the division.

Panthers (-4) vs. TITANS
The Panthers' defense is for real.

Bears (+7) vs. RAMS
Give me the points. Cutler keeps it close.

REDSKINS (-1) vs. Saints
I don't trust Drew Brees outside.

EAGLES (-6) vs. Dolphins
Remember when Dan Campbell was the next coming of Bill Parcells? Yeah, not so much.

STEELERS (-6.5) vs. Browns
Shootout central. The Steelers win on a late TD.

Jaguars (+5.5) vs. RAVENS
The Jags are going to score points. The Ravens defense is no good. You do the math.

Vikings (+3) vs. RAIDERS 
The Vikings are quietly having a real nice season. They go into Oakland and beat a good Raiders team.

Patriots (-7) vs. GIANTS
This isn't a Super Bowl, so Eli will not be beating the Patriots today. The Giants can't cover anyone, the Patriots throw. A. LOT.

BRONCOS (-3.5) vs. Chiefs
Broncos get back on track today and keep Alex Smith and the Chiefs to minimal points.

SEAHAWKS (-3) vs. Cardinals
The Cards are a good team, but the Seahawks are finding their way, and they're home.

BENGALS (-11) vs. Texans
Bengals remain undefeated. A.J. Green and Andy Dalton have big games.

This Week: 0-1
Last Week: 5-8
Season: 55-71-6

Until next time.

Week 10 Quick Pick

Holy shit it's week 10! Thanksgiving is two weeks away. How is that possible?

Tonight is a big game for a Thursday night. Well, big game for me at least. Rex Ryan takes his first trip back to Met Life Stadium.

JETS (-2) vs. Bills
This is going to be a defensive battle with a lot of punts. Either that or it will be 42-39. I think defense is going to be front and center tonight. Neither team will run the ball well. It will come down to a FG and unfortunately Nick Folk is on IR. I still think the Jets have enough to get the win, 20-14.

Until next time.
