NFL Week 14 Predictions

Indianapolis at Tennessee (Thursday, 8:20pm)
The playoffs begin now for the Colts as they sit 6-6 and one game out in the AFC South.  The Titans checked out a few weeks ago.
Winner: Colts

Cleveland at Buffalo (Sunday 1pm)

If Jake Delhomme continues to play for the Browns, the Bills are the pick.
Winner: Bills

Cincinnati at Pittsburgh (Sunday 1pm)

Banged-up, battered, bruised and broken, it doesn’t matter.   The Steelers are still better than the Bengals.
Winner: Steelers

Oakland at Jacksonville (Sunday 1pm)

The rollercoaster Raiders come East.  That’s a good sign for the Jaguars who continue to ride Maurice Jones-Drew to victories.
Winner: Jaguars

Tampa Bay at Washington (Sunday 1pm)

The Redskins continue to be in turmoil and the Bucs continue to beat up on bad teams under .500.
Winner: Bucs

Green Bay at Detroit, Fox (Sunday 1pm)

This one will be tougher than it looks, but Aaron Rodgers vs. Drew Stanton is just no contest.
Winner: Packers

N.Y. Giants at Minnesota (Sunday 1pm)

The Vikings look like a different team under interim head coach Leslie Frazier.  They actually play hard!  If the Vikings can stop the run, they have a chance.
Winner: Vikings

Atlanta at Carolina (Sunday 1pm)

Bye week #2 for the Falcons
Winner: Falcons

St. Louis at New Orleans (Sunday 4pm)

If there’s a spot for the Rams to step up and show they deserve to be seriously talked about in the NFC Playoff Race, this is it.
Winner: Saints

Seattle at San Francisco (Sunday 4pm)

The QB carousel continues in San Francisco as Alex Smith gets his job back.
Winner: Seahawks

Denver at Arizona (Sunday 4:15pm)

The Cardinals are the worst team in pro football right now.  Enough said.
Winner: Broncos

New England at Chicago (Sunday 4:15pm)

It’s a perfect trap week.  New England’s coming off a Monday night romp over its divisional rival, the Jets and has to hit the road against an NFC opponent.  
Winner: Patriots

Miami at N.Y. Jets (Sunday 4:15pm)

The NFL would like to apologize to the Miami Dolphins for having to feel the brunt of the Jets brutal 45-3 loss to the Patriots Monday night.
Winner: Jets

Kansas City at San Diego (Sunday 4:15pm)

The Chargers could not look any worse than in last Sunday’s home loss to the Raiders where they couldn’t stop anyone, let alone Darren McFadden & Michael Bush.   Should be interesting to see how they handle Jamaal Charles & Thomas Jones this week.

UPDATE (6:48pm): Chiefs QB Matt Cassel had an appendectomy Wednesday.  So much for the upset for the Chiefs.

Winner: Chargers.

Philadelphia at Dallas (Sunday 8:20pm)

These two teams have to face off twice in the season’s final four weeks.  That’s not a good thing if you’re either team.
Winner: Cowboys

Baltimore at Houston (Monday 8:30pm)

10 days off and a home game for the Texans, who are clinging to their playoff lives.  Joe Flacco and the Ravens need a rebound after a tough last second loss to Pittsburgh Sunday night.
Winner: Ravens

Last week: 10-6

Season: 119-73
