NFL Predictions Week 12

Green Bay at Detroit (Thursday 12:30pm)
Is this where the Packers undefeated streak ends? Yes.
Winner: Lions

Miami at Dallas (Thursday 4:15pm)

The Dolphins come in winners of three in a row, but none of those were against as talented a team as Dallas.
Winner: Cowboys
     
San Francisco at Baltimore (Thursday 8:20pm)
It's the Harbaugh Bowl (or the Har-Bowl)  as brothers Jim and John face on Thanksgiving Night. A Super Bowl preview? 3,000 miles on a short holiday week could be too tough for SF.
Winner: Ravens


Buffalo at N.Y.Jets (Sunday 1pm)

Things for from bad to worse for the Bills, who head coach Chan Gailey called "pitiful" in last Sunday's loss in Miami.  Guess what, he was right!
Winner: Jets

Cleveland at Cincinnati (Sunday 1pm)

Finally, the Bengals get an AFC North opponent they can handle after rough losses to the Steelers and Ravens.
Winner: Bengals

Tampa Bay at Tennessee (Sunday 1pm)

QB Jake Locker will be waiting in the wings if the injured Matt Hasselbeck's elbow flares up again. Tampa's season needs a quick turnaround and this will be the place to do it.
Winner: Bucs

Carolina at Indianapolis (Sunday 1pm)

Cam Newton's offense put up 35 on Detroit last Sunday.  Is 50 a possibility this week?
Winner: Panthers

Houston at Jacksonville (Sunday 1pm)

QB Matt Leinart gets his first start since 2008 as he takes over for the injured Matt Schaub.  The Jags will provide a not-so-nice welcome mat, but let's be honest, they're only averaging 12 points a game.
Winner: Texans

Minnesota at Atlanta (Sunday 1pm)

Will RB Adrian Peterson play with a high ankle sprain? If not, the Falcons should cruise.
Winner: Falcons

Arizona at St. Louis (Sunday 1pm)

The Rams laid a giant egg last week at home against Seattle. Miss this one at all cost and be thankful you don't have to watch it.
Winner: Rams

Washington at Seattle (Sunday 4pm)

The two lowest scoring teams in the NFC get together. ZZZZZZZZZZZZ
Winner: Seahawks

Chicago at Oakland (Sunday 4pm)
Welcome back QB Caleb Hanie. Your first mission - go into the Black Hole and win against a pretty good Raiders team.
Winner: Raiders

Denver at San Diego (Sunday 4:15pm)

Can the Tebow Magic continue? Only if the Broncos defense can continue to hold Phillip Rivers at bay long enough for it to matter in the final five minutes.
Winner: Chargers

New England at Philadelphia (Sunday 4:15pm)

QB Vince Young looked magnificent in a nearly nine-minute final quarter, game-winning drive against the Giants. He should be able to do some damage against the Patriots, but can they outscore Tom Brady?
Winner: Patriots

Pittsburgh at Kansas City (Sunday 8:20pm)

Why is the nation subjected to two straight primetime games involving the Chiefs? It wouldn't matter who played QB for the Steelers if Big Ben can't go with that fractured thumb (he'll play).
Winner: Steelers

N.Y.Giants at New Orleans (Monday 8:30pm)

Just like their NY counterparts the Jets, the Giants have gone South the past two games after a quality win. The Saints should keep them there.
Winner: Saints

Last week: 10-4
Season: 105-55
