NFL Week 14 Predictions

A solid but not spectacular performance in Week 13, but I'm 1-0 this week with the Pittsburgh victory I'm and smelling another good series of picks.

Last week's record: 11-5 
2011 season record: 130-63 (67.4 percent)

Bengals over Texans

The Texans pulled off a nice win with third-string rookie T. J. Yates at the helm, but it's hard to imagine they'll do it again on the road against a good Bengals team that plays the run well.


Lions
over Vikings

Minnesota is coming off a deflating home loss to the Tebows and doesn't have the offensive firepower to keep up with the Lions, however undisciplined Detroit may be.


Saints
over Titans

Chris Johnson is racking up yards like his old self again, but I'm not sure Tennessee has enough talent on offense to keep up with the Saints.


Dolphins
over Eagles

This game sure looked a lot different before the season, didn't it? I think the Eagles have more talent and they could easily win this game with Michael Vick back, but these teams are heading in totally opposite directions, and I can't pick against the Dolphins right now as well as they are playing.


Jets
over Chiefs

New York has been pretty inspiring all season, but I don't see any way they get beat by whatever quarterback the Chiefs trots out there.


Patriots
over Redskins

Rex Grossman is forgetting he's Rex Grossman again and playing well, but I don't see any way he'll be able to top the Patriots' offense, even with New England's defense being pretty bad.


Falcons
over Panthers

I had Carolina picked up until today given that they're at home and and the Falcons choked in Houston this week, but now I think Atlanta rebounds and follows up last week's disaster with a tough divisional win on the road.


Buccaneers
over Jaguars 

I could see Jacksonville winning this one at home, but it's so hard to pick them given how bad Blaine Gabbert has been. With Josh Freeman back at the helm, I think Tampa Bay does enough to win this Florida battle.


Ravens
over Colts

There is simply no reason to pick the Colts. Ever.


Broncos
over Bears 

As much as I hate Tim Tebow, the Broncos are playing well as a team right now and Chicago can't seem to do anything without Jay Cutler and Matt Forte. Denver should win this one.


49ers
over Cardinals

Arizona pulled out an overtime win against the Cowboys last week thanks to Dallas icing its own kicker, but I don't see it happening this week against a 49ers team that can do no wrong.


Packers
over Raiders

Oakland looked completely helpless last week in Miami, so I see the perfect Packers staying undefeated in Week 14.


Chargers
over Bills

Buffalo has really fallen off in the second half, so I don't see them outscoring the Chargers on the West Coast.


Cowboys
over Giants

New York is coming into this game on a much better note, having nearly bested the Packers in Week 13 while the Cowboys lost a heart-breaker to the Cardinals. That being said, I think Dallas rebounds in a big divisional game at home.


Seahawks
over Rams 

Former Dolphins practice-squadder Tom Brandstater is making his first NFL start, so it could get quite ugly against a Seahawks team that knows how to win.
