NFL Picks Week 15

I took a beating last week, 6-10, but Jesus what a bunch of weird games! The Jags made the Colts look like a high school team, the Pats get blanked by the Dolphins, the Chiefs got spanked at Arrowhead and my Seahawks lost in the desert. Who knows anymore..... on to the picks (home team in CAPS).

SEATTLE over San Francisco- I'm off to the game tonight, and we're expecting a windstorm for the ages here in Seattle, projected winds 70 MPH. I expect a steady dose of Alexander and Gore, but the Seahawks have to view this as a revenge game after losing to the Niners earlier.

Dallas over ATLANTA- I expect the Cowboys to bounce back against the inconsistent Falcons, but I didn't like the quit I saw in the Cowboys last week.

BALTIMORE over Cleveland- The Ravens might be the best team in football right now, close between them and the Chargers. They should beat the Browns as long as they don't fall into the trap game after the win on the road last week.

GREEN BAY over Detroit- Really, the Lions are just awful, and the Pack can play well, especially against bad teams. Big day for Favre.

NEW ENGLAND over Houston- I have to assume the Pats will bounce back after the spanking they took last week. They're at home in the cold against a Texas team.

Jacksonville over TENNESSEE- The Titans are much improved with Young at QB, but after the beating they applies to the Colts, I can see this being a letdown game for the Jags. I still think they'll win, but not by a lot.

Miami over BUFFALO- Miami's a good team, and if they had made the right call to start the season at QB, they would be challenging the Pats for the AFC East title.

New Jersey Jets over MINNESOTA- The Vikings just look terrible, and the Jets aren't that bad. Really, they're not.

NEW JERSEY GIANTS over Philadelphia- I'm rooting for the Eagles, but I think the Giants gained back some confidence last week, and they're at home.

CAROLINA over Pittsburgh- The Panthers are average, but the Steelers are having a bad year, and are pretty banged up.

CHICAGO over Tampa Bay- Grossman is back! It's the '85 Bears again! Nobody can stop the Bears! (sarcasm) The over-anointing of the Bears has come back after last week, but I do expect them to beat a pathetic Bucs team.

NEW ORLEANS over Washington- The Saints look really good. The Redskins, not so much.

DENVER over Arizona- Jay Cutler is 0-2, not the savior the Broncos were looking for. I still think they're better than the Cardinals though.

SAN DIEGO over Kansas City- The Chargers are just rolling right now, firing on all cylinders, and the Chiefs had the wind knocked out of them last week.

St. Louis over OAKLAND- This is just a guess, both these teams are having a terrible year.

Cinncinatti over INDIANAPOLIS- The Bengals have been playing really good the last few weeks, and their defense has really improved. Meanwhile, the Colts look like they're in free-fall. Of course, since I said that, Manning will have a 5 TD, 400-yard performance on Monday Night Football.

Last week: 6-10
