Week 12 Game Picks

Week 12 action is already well underway following the Thanksgiving day triple-header which featured a close game between Miami and Dallas, who is fighting for the NFC East crown, and the "Harbowl" between two playoff contending teams–Baltimore and San Francisco.

Sunday Nov. 27

Falcons over Vikings
Minnesota will be without Adrian Peterson and Matt Ryan is on a hot streak.

Bengals over Browns
This will make three consecutive division matchups for Cincinnati, I think it's about time they win a division game.

Panthers over Colts
Cam Newton picks up his third win as the starter of a professional team as Indy remains winless.

Texans over Jaguars
Lucky for Houston, Matt Leinart's debut as the starter will come against the 3-7 Jaguars (2-3 over last five games)
Jets over Bills
After a 4-1 start, the Bills have dropped four of its last five games, including a 35-8 defeat against the three-win Dolphins last week.

Rams over Cards
It appears as though John Skelton will start over Kevin Kolb once again today. I expect a solid day from St. Louis' defense against Skelton.

Bucs over Titans
Despite the injury, Matt Hasselbeck is expected to start for Tennessee. This worries me a bit, and after breaking out with 107 yards and a touchdown last week, I expect another big day from TB's LeGarrett Blount

Raiders over Bears
Cutler is gone, and Caleb Hanie is in for Chicago. Carson Palmer has finally found his rhythm for the Raiders and this is their chance to break away from the rest of the AFC West, with a victory over the 7-3 Bears.

Seahawks over Redskins
The Skins have now dropped six in a row, and I don't think there's any way to stop Washington's free-fall from here.
Patriots over Eagles
Despite poor pass defense, the Patriots remain one of the tougher opponents in the AFC, and with inconsistent defense from Philadelphia through 10 games, I don't think there's any stopping Belichick and Co. today.

Broncos over Chargers
I wouldn't say I'm completely sold on Tebow, but with an inconsistent Philip Rivers under center and a Denver defense that has kept Tebow in games I think the Broncos can pull this one off on the road.

Steelers over Chiefs
Attempting to keep pace with Baltimore in the North, Pittsburgh will need to effectively protect Ben Roethlisberger from KC's Tamba Hali. But with Tyler Palko making another start (despite Kyle Orton signing), I don't think the Steelers will have too much trouble putting the Chiefs away early.

Monday Nov. 28

Saints over Giants
New York is a contender in the NFC East, but New Orleans has finally hit their stride this season and is 4-0 at home.

Byes: None
