Colts @ Jaguars

The Colts (13-0) are pursuing perfection as they travel to Jacksonville to face the Jaguars (7-6). The Jags are fighting for their playoff lives, while the Colts have already locked up home field throughout the playoffs. Indianapolis has a 22 game regular season win streak, which is an NFL record. They are quite possibly the best team in the recent decade. However, Jacksonville is pretty good team and it sure wont be an easy win. I have the Colts 26-17.

Cowboys @ Saints

The Dallas Cowboys (8-5) come to the Super dome to visit the (13-0) Saints. This is the last threat the Saints have on their schedule to hand them their first loss on the season. This is a MUST win for the Cowboys. They are currently (0-2) in the month of December. A win would keep them in first place for the NFC Wild Card. Terrence Newman and the other members of the Cowboys secondary will have to keep Drew Brees from ripping apart the defense. If Tony Romo can make smart passes, and not have turnovers, and the three-headed monster of the Cowboys running game can create holes in the Saints defense, the Cowboys could get the big win. I think they have the desire and the will to win. I have the Cowboys 27-20.

Browns @ Chiefs

The Browns, coming off of a win against the Steelers, visit the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. Cleveland still isnt where they need to be, but they are improving. If the Chiefs could get a better receiving core, Matt Cassell could lead this team to wins. However, the Browns are the winning team. They still have the inability to score, but the Chiefs aren't putting up points either. In a low scoring game, the Browns will win 13-7.

Texans @ Rams

The Houston Texans (6-7) travel to Saint Louis to visit (1-12) Rams. The Texans have  been steadily improving this season while trying to base the offense around Matt Schaub. This guy is putting up numbers just as good as the guys like Manning, Brees, Rivers, and Brady. I have the Texans even challenging the colts in the AFC south next season. The Rams will no be able to stop the Texans passing game. Schaub will have a big game, Texans win 38-3.

Patriots @ Bills

One of the biggest surprises of this 2009 Season. The Patriots have five losses heading into week 15. They visit Buffalo (5-8) this weekend in a AFC East Match-up. Ryan Fitzpatrick has had decent numbers after leading the Bills to a two win two loss four game span. This will be a pretty good game. The Patriots won't run away with it, but they will get the win. 31-20.

Dolphins @ Titans

The Miami Dolphins (7-6) come to play arguably the hottest team in football, the (5-7) Tennesee Titans. Tennesee started the season off (0-6). They went on a five game win streak with Vince Young as QB, replacing Kerry Collins. Now he is day-to-day with his hamstring injury. The Dolphins have managed to only be one game back on New England, even without Chad Pennington. Chad Henne has done just enough to get Miami to seven wins. This one will come down to fourth quarter touchdown or field goal. I have the Dolphins 24-17.

49ers @ Eagles

The San Fransisco 49ers (6-7) have greatly improved this season after putting in former number one draft pick Alex Smith back at QB. Mike Singletary has provent to be a tough leader for the 9ers. This is a team with a lot of talent and heart. They still have a chance at the AFC West. The Eagles (9-4), are clicking on all cylinders heading into week 15. DeShaun Jackson and Donovan McNabb have really been on the same page week after week. I could see this game going either way. But in the end, the Eagles will prevail, 23-14.

Cardinals @ Lions

The (8-5) Cardinals will visit the (2-11) Lions. The Cardinals are an overall good team with two of the best wide recievers in all of football. Bolden and Fitzgerald compliment each other very well. Kurt Warner is a born leader and has given this team the will to be at the next level. The Lions are a different story. With a QB that strives to throw interceptions more than he does touchdowns, they are a real mess. The Cardinals will have their way with them, 38-9.

Bears @ Ravens

When the Bears traded Kyle Orten to the Broncos for Jay Cutler, everyone, including the Bears thought that they had gotten the better deal. Not quite. Jay Cutler is an interception machine. He is making dumb passes and is not reading coverages at all. On the other side of the coin, Joe Flacco hasnt been as amazing in his Sophmore year than many thought. The Ravens will have the most talent in this game though. 34-23, Cutler throws two picks to Ed Reed.

Falcons @ Jets

The Atlanta Falcons will be going to the Meadowlands to face the New York Jets. Neither of these teams have proven to be spectacular this season. Mark Sanchez for the Jets is a member of the FIC. Frequent Interception Club. It seems that every pass is just a ppick waithing to happen. Matt Ryan, however, has been an average leader. The Falcons will prevail 17-6.

Raiders @ Broncos

The improving Oakland Raiders go to the Mile High City to face the confused Broncos. Some weeks, the Broncos look to be unstoppable, others they just seem like they done want to win. The Raiders have announced that Bruce Gradkowski will not start due to his knee injury. Instead of JaMarcus Russel, Luke McCown will get the start. The Broncos will pick McCown apart on their home turf. I have Denver 31-10 over the Raiders without Gradkowski.

Bengals @ Chargers

The Bengals will be playing with heavy hearts after the death of Chris Henry. The Chargers are the best team in the NFL at this point. Rivers and LT will have their way against Cincy's Defense. Not much to say bout this one, 34-24 Chargers.

Bucs @ Seahawks

Again not much to say about this game. Both of these teams really dont have anything to be playing for. The Bucs cant find their passing game, while the Seahawks cant stay healty. I have the Seahawks 21-10.

Packers @ Steelers

The Green Bay Packers will come to pay the struggling Steelers a little visit. The Packers are on a big winning streak and I dont see it ending. The Steelers cant seem to buy a win in the recent weeks. The Packers will win 31-17.

Vikings @ Panthers

The Vikings are one of the most complete teams in the NFL. The Panthers wiil start Matt Moore due to Delhommes injury. The Vikings will have their way against Carolina. Vikings will win big, 38-14.

Giants @ Redskins

The classic NFC East Rivalry will start a new chapter monday. This is a must win for the Giants in their hopes of staying in the final Wild Card spot. The Redskins have enough talent to pull off a small upset. Washington will win 20-17 in a close game.
