NFL Picks

All picks against the spread and home team in capitals.


Tennessee (+2.5) over BUFFALO
The Bills have staggered since their hot start and it won't be easy for them to run into a team that has a fighting chance to win the AFC South now that the Texans are playing Drew Bledsoe at quarterback.

CHICAGO (-7) over Kansas City
When the QB matchup is Caleb Hanie and Tyler Palko the smart gambler looks at the defenses and running games which is why I am taking the Bears.

MIAMI (-3) over Oakland
The Raiders travel across the country to play one of the best defenses in the league with Carson Palmer under center.  Take the points.

PATRIOTS (-20.5) over Indianapolis
I wonder if Peyton Manning will show his face on the sidelines today while the Colts are getting tortured for being the driving force behind the rule changes over the last few years thathave turned the NFL into a professional version of flag football.

Cincinnati (+6.5) over PITTSBURGH
The Red Rifle and A.J. Green help pull off the upset while keeping the Bengals alive in the AFC playoff picture.

Carolina (+3) over TAMPA BAY
My Cam Newton experiment in fantasy football takes off today.

Denver (+1.5) over MINNESOTA
Tim Tebow is getting the headlines but the Denver defense is doing most of the work.  With Adrian Peterson on the sidelines the Broncos defense will shut down the Vikings offense and Tebow will put up just enough points to keep his team in contention in the AFC West.

NY Jets (-3) over WASHINGTON
Come on, a Patriots-Jets rematch in the Divisional Round has to happen.

HOUSTON (+3) over Atlanta
Arian Foster and Ben Tate will be enough for the Texans to survive the T.J. Yates Experiment.

Baltimore (-6.5) over CLEVELAND
I am feeling a Ravens-Patriots AFC Championship Game.

Green Bay (-7) over NY GIANTS
Sign me up for the Packers when there is a single-digit point spread.

SAN FRANCISCO (-13.5) over St. Louis
Steve Spagnuolo would be a nice addition for the 2012 Patriots as a defensive coordinator.

Dallas (-4.5) over ARIZONA
I like my chances with a Rob Ryan defense going against Kevin Kolb.

NEW ORLEANS (-9) over Detroit
The sky is falling on the Lions after their hot start.

JACKSONVILLE (+3) over San Diego
Okay, I'll be the one to start the rumor of Chip Kelly going to San Diego to replace Norv Turner.

This Week: 0 - 1
Last Week: 8 - 8
Season: 86 - 83 - 5
