Chris Nelson's Week 14 NFL Game Predictions

Chris J. NelsonSenior Writer IDecember 6, 2008

It had to end sometime. After four weeks of 12 picks correct, I totally laid an egg last week getting only half (8-of-16) correct in Week 13. Don't hate me, I'll try to do better this week.

Last week's record: 8-8
Season record: 121-71 (63 percent)

Bears over Jaguars - The Jaguars have just been so disappointing this year, and I don't see them going up to Chicago and beating the Bears in December.

Vikings over Lions - Do I really need to give any explanation here?

Packers over Texans - Matt Schaub and Steve Slaton have the potential to put up a lot of points, but I'll take the Packers on the frozen tundra.

Titans over Browns - Ken Dorsey doesn't have a chance in hell of beating this defense.

Colts over Bengals - I can't imagine the Bengals standing in the way of the rolling Colts.

Saints over Falcons - I've been burned picking against the Falcons quite a few times this year, but I think Drew Brees & Co. take care of business at home.

Giants over Eagles - Plaxico Burress or no, the Giants are playing too well right now to pick against them.

Dolphins over Bills - To be honest, this game scares the hell out of me. But Buffalo's just been playing so poorly lately and I have to have faith in my team.

Broncos over Chiefs - Tyler Thigpen and Kansas City does have the potential to get into a shootout with Denver, but I think the Broncos even the season series this week.

Jets over 49ers - San Francisco just isn't good enough on either side of the ball to stop the Jets.

Patriots over Seahawks - New England's defense is pretty banged up and unimpressive, but Seneca Wallace still won't be able to do enough.

Cardinals over Rams - St. Louis doesn't have the defense to stop Arizona's passing attack.

Steelers over Cowboys - A huge game for Dallas and the best matchup of the week, but I like the Steelers at home.

Ravens over Redskins - Washington hasn't been that impressive lately, and I think Baltimore's defense handles them enough to get a win.

Panthers over Buccaneers - A tough divisional matchup to pick, but I say Steve Smith leads the Panthers to a victory.
