It feels like just yesterday that we were kicking off the 2011 NFL Season.

We are now in Week 14 and just a few weeks away from the conclusion of the regular season.

It's now or never for teams that are looking to make a last-second push at the playoffs.

Some teams have a solid lock, but will still be playing hard regardless.

Here are three teams you can't go wrong with picking as winners this weekend.

 

Green Bay Packers

Right now it looks like there are only two or three teams in the entire league that may have a shot at stopping the Green Bay Packers.

Unfortunately for Raiders fans, Oakland is not one of those teams.

There is no team that has been damaged more than the Raiders in terms of injuries.

They are missing their starting quarterback, running back and wide receiver. There are multiple injuries on the defensive side of the ball as well.

If they were completely healthy, the Raiders may have been a sleeper team that could have upset the Packers.

However, with all the injuries it's too much to overcome.

Aaron Rodgers is having one of the best seasons for a player in NFL history. It won't be this Raiders team that will slow him down.

Baltimore Ravens

The team on the totally opposite end of the spectrum of the Green Bay Packers are the Indianapolis Colts.

At 0-12, it's really starting to look like the Colts are going to manage to join the ranks of the Detroit Lions a few years back with a winless season.

It's amazing how much Peyton Manning really did mean to this team.

The Colts have one more chance at pulling off a victory this season. It's not going to be this week against the Baltimore Ravens.

It may come in the final week of the season against the Jaguars.

The Ravens are one of the top defenses in the league. The Colts are putting up 14.5 points per game.

Right now, the real question is whether or not the Colts will muster up ten points in this one.

San Francisco 49ers

It's amazing how little respect this 49ers team is getting this season.

They are allowing a league-low 13.4 points per game. Opponents are rushing for a league-worst 71.8 yards per game against them.

They control the ball and the clock on the offensive side of the ball and still manage 24.0 points per game.

Most importantly, they are 10-2.

Last week the 49ers put up a 26-0 shutout against the St. Louis Rams.

The Arizona Cardinals aren't a much better team than the Rams are. This weekend you can expect much more of the same from the 49ers.

They won't gain much respect, but they will dominate Arizona.
