NFL Picks Week 15 - Page 3
DET @ TB 5½
Cheech reports that “The Lions hasn’t won a road game this decade.” Not quite, but this season, they’re 0-6. Both teams come in to this off a victory. The Lions finally figured out how to beat the Pack — knock out the QB, and the Bucs simply let the Redskins beat themselves. Taking the Bucs at home.
NO @ BAL -3
Big battle of playoff-bound teams here. The Saints played like men possessed in beating the Rams last week, while the Ravens had to win in OT after blowing a big lead and letting the Texans back into the game. Benny Bagels says, “The Ravens ‘d’ is way overrated.” Taking New Orleans with points.
ATL -6 @ SEA
Bobby-Big-Fingers points out, “These teams has two things in common - both is birds and both is in the playoff hunt.” But the Falcons, of course, are a lock, and the Seahawks are trying to back in over the other losers in the West. The Falcons took care of the embarrassing Panthers easily last week, while the Seahawks gave up 40 in a loss to the 49ers. Taking Atlanta.
NYJ @ PIT -6
Once again, the Jets showed their impotence last week in losing to the Dolphins in NY. That defeat came after getting blown-out against the Pats the week before, and for the math buffs out there, note that the Jets have managed to put up a total of 9 big points on the scoreboard during those two losses. And now they face a mean and hungry Steelers team, fighting for position in the playoffs. In Pittsburgh, no less. Vinnie the Mooch says, “Got only one word for them - Oy!!!” Taking Pittsburgh.
DEN @ OAK -6
Frankie Nuts says “Both of these teams is spinning their wheels. But the Raiders has just a little more grip.” The Broncos showed what they are made of last week when they gave up 43 points to the weak-sister Cards. And Oakland also showed what they are made of by giving up big plays and losing 38-31 to the Jags. Taking Oakland.
