Steelers @ Falcons: The Steelers killed the Bengals last week. The Falcons did lose but they managed to put up 37 points in Lambeau of all places, in the snow. The Falcons seem to be coming together lately. I am going with Atlanta this weekend at home in front of the faithful. Falcons win 43 - 37.
The Team formerly named for native people's @ Giants: Both teams are lost and have no hope to finishing the season well. I have no idea which team is truly better but I will go this week with the home team. Giants win 24 - 20.
Dolphins @ Patriots: The Dolphins look average, they struggled badly against the Ravens in Miami. The Patriots are without a doubt the best team in the AFC. They looked good, not elite, but good on the road in San Diego. The Patriots will roll at home against divisional rivals. Patriots win 45 - 28.
Raiders @ Cheifs : Raiders beat the pathetic 49ers last week. The Raiders aren't talented at all on offense and have a pretty decent defense. The cheifs are an about average team slightly above, I consider them equal to the Ravens. I think the Cheifs will beat their hated divisional rival Raiders this week. Cheifs win 23 - 17.
Texans @ Colts: Texans had a good win last week, it was the Jaguars so take it with a grain of salt. The Colts last week showed to me how vulnerable they are by struggling against a team with a terrible QB in Brian Hoyer. The Colts as well as the Texans seem inconsistent each week. I am going to take an "upset" here which will make the division really interesting. Texans win 31 - 28.
Jaguars @ Ravens: This is the easiest game of the week to call for sure. Ravens are the far superior team and if they lose this game they should be worried about Flacco's regular season inconsistencies. Ravens beat the weak Jaguars 37 - 17.
Packers @ Bills: The Packers are so good. I honestly don't think a team in the NFL could beat the Packers especially at home. They travel to cold Lambeau like Buffalo. The Bills are a decent team missing a few pieces plus they have a hapless QB. Orton struggles this week against a fired up Packers team. The Bills do have a 5th ranked defense though. Packers win still 31 - 20.
Bucs @ Panthers: Cam Newton I hope your back heals well and all is ok. Derek Anderson will be a good replacement and thankfully they play the Bucs. Bucs are a terrible team and things aren't getting better for them as they head to Carolina. Anderson will do enough along with Jonathan Stewart and the Panthers will win 27 - 17.
Bengals @ Browns: The Bengals might be the most painful team to watch. Their offense is the least consistent in the NFL. They are poorly coached as well. They seem to be falling apart defensively without the most underrated player in the league, Vontaze Burfict. The Browns have finally brought in the QB they should have for the past 3 weeks. Johnny Manziel will bring a fire to the fans and the team around him. Browns win this game at home 34 - 30.
Jets @ Titans: Jets should just throw in the towel and fight for the number one pick. The Titans are now back to using Jake Locker and I believe it's actually going to help them. The Titans disappointed me last week but I feel they won't this week. Titans roll 32 - 24.
Broncos @ Chargers: The Broncos should be grateful they have CJ Anderson because last week Peyton Manning looked absolutely pathetic. He must have been studying film of Colin Kaepernick. Meanwhile the Chargers played a good game against the best team in the AFC. I feel Chargers are right now the better football team and I will pick them to win 36 - 32.
Vikings @ Lions: The Lions have roared back to life the past 2 weeks. The vikings on the other hand continue to look mediocre. The Lions will roll at home and continue to hold a wildcard spot. Lions win 37 - 20.
49ers @ Seahawks: The 49ers are falling apart everywhere the only player that they have something to smile about, that's Chris Borland. The Hawks are rolling as of late and look in superbowl form again. Seahawks dominated the 49ers on prime time in San Francisco on thanksgiving. The Seahawks at home are even scarier and will destroy their division rival and continue to hope Arizona loses one. Hawks kill the pathetic Kaeperpick and win 38 - 17.
Cowboys @ Eagles : Cowboys are a solid team with a great QB and an amazing running back. The Eagles are a better team then they showed last week at home. The Eagles will bounce back and beat the Cowboys this week on Sunday night football. Eagles win 37 - 28.
Saints @ Bears: I don't know what happened to the Saints but they are horrible in the dome. They are oddly enough lucky to be on the road. Unfortunately they head into soldier field in the middle of December. This dome team against the Bears in Chicago might be a nigtmare. The Bears are a very bad team though for all the talent they have and without Brandon Marshall I don't know how they will handle themselves. This Monday night game will be a good one for all the wrong reasons. Bears win though at home 27 - 23.

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Atlanta Falcons. Rise and shine! It's offensive shootout time! A few years ago, I never thought I'd say this about a Steelers game, but this will be a shootout! Both of these teams are going to score a ton this week, but the Steelers are a hotter team right now. They won in Cincinnati last week, and they will continue to win on the road against Atlanta. Final score, Steelers 38, Falcons 34.
Washington Native Peoples@ New York Big People. The Washington Native Blankets bring some Special-Anti-Racial-Stereotype (SARS) blankets to New York in preparation for their meeting with the New York Big People (not to be confused with the Little People of America). Both of these teams need some tender love and care right now, but I expect the Giants to win this one. Jay Gruden just isn't an NFL caliber head coach, SARS blankets or no SARS blankets. At least the Giants have Odell Beckham III. Final score: Big People of New York 24, Washington Native Peoples 14.
Miami Dolphins @ New England Rebels. This is actually a huge game with big playoff implications. If Miami can win this one they'll be in great shape. However, I'll take Tom Brady at home any day of the week. Brady and Belichick seem to be at their best in big games, and this week will be no different. The British couldn't defeat the American Rebels, and neither will Miami. Paul Revere rides and the Patriots win, 38-7!
Oakland Raiders @ KC Chiefs. The Raiders beat the Chiefs once this year. The Chiefs aren't bad enough to lose to Oakland twice. KC wins, splitting the series. Final score Chiefs 20, Raiders 12. Bold prediction: A KC WR will score a TD this week for the first time in over a year!
Texans @ Colts. The Texans are actually a decent football team, but the Colts have a far better offense. Indy brings the BOOM, and Andrew Luck has a big game against Houston. Final score, Indy 35, Houston 14.
Jaguars @ Ravens. An old AFC Central rivalry game, but the Jaguars have no teeth this year. The Ravens will dominate this game on both sides of the football, winning 28-14. And to think, in some areas, people are going to have to watch this game.
Packers @ Bills. The Green Bay Packers are the best team in the NFL right now, hands down. Buffalo is good, but not good enough to beat Green Bay, even if this is a home game. Orton has experience playing against Green Bay from his days as a Bear, but that experience won't help him this week, as the Packers win, 45-14.
Bucs @ Panthers. People need to stop making jokes about this game. Derek Anderson is an NFL quarterback. The fact that he's starting isn't funny. It's a testament to his talent as a player. That being said, Cam Newton's injury is unfortunate and will hurt Panthers' playoff hopes this year, but in the scheme of things, that's not important. What's important is that the young man walked away from the accident and is still living and breathing. I hope he recovers fully and quickly, and can't wait to see him back on the football field. Now to the game. I think the Panthers rally and win this one for Cam at home. Final score Panthers 56, Bucs 17. Derek Anderson throws for 5 TDs as cameras catch him laughing on the sideline in the 4th quarter.
Bengals @ Browns. It's a little known fact that the Cincinnati Bengals almost always struggle against rookie QBs or other QBs they've never competed against. The same may prove true for Johnny Manziel. The Bengals are in full collapse mode, and will likely be bungalized by the Browns in Cleveland, effectively ending Cincinnati's season. Final score Browns 38, Bengals 21.
Jets @ Titans. Ah, the NFL's Kleenex Mamby Pamby Land Consolation Bowl. Two terrible teams, with draft position at risk. The Jets have a history of screwing things up, and they'll screw up their chance at the #1 overall pick by winning this game. Final score Jets 35, Titans 21.
Broncos @ Chargers. Yes the Broncos are a great football team. However, they are playing a divisional rival on the road. San Diego is actually playing pretty well right now, and will put up a fight in this game. That being said, Peyton is going to come back hot after a tough week last week. Final Score, in overtime. Broncos win, 31-28.
Vikings @ Lions. This is a frustrating game to call. This game could easily go either way, but I think the Lions are the better team. I'm going to go with Detroit to pull this one out at home, 24-20. Golden Tate scores a TD.
49ers @ Seahawks. This game looked better before the season started. The 49ers are imploding. Seattle has found their identity again. Seahawks win this one easily at home, 28-21.
Cowboys @ Eagles. Two maligned quarterbacks, one huge divisional game! Who will win in this epic battle? Both teams have extremely explosive offenses, and both give up huge amounts of points from time to time. This game is extremely hard to call as well. I'll give the edge to Philly at home, 38-35.
Saints @ Bears. Story time guys! There was a time when this game looked like it'd be a competitive game with playoff implications. This game will still be competitive, and holds some playoff implications for the Saints, but only because their entire division is terrible. Since it's at Soldier Field in winter, I think the Bears pull this one out, 24-20.
Sorry I'm late and I'm rushed, but I'm busy again this weekend. I know I use that excuse every weekend, but I promise its true.
