NFL Picks & Pans: Week 12

New, comments

With three games in the books already for week 12, Sunday and Monday offers a bunch of good contests, including the Baltimore Ravens/Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night game as well as the great matchup between the New England Patriots visiting the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football. As always, I'lll preview the Ravens-Steelers game Sunday morning, but here we go with the rest of the games:

Bengals over Browns: Cincinnati gets back on track and stays in 1st place in the AFC North while Cleveland loses the Battle of Ohio. Gee, what a surprise!

Colts over Texans: After coming close to dropping from the ranks of the unbeatens, Indianapolis continues its dominance over their AFC South foes.

Eagles over Redskins: Philadelphia continues looking for a post season berth while Washington just wants this nightmare season to end.

Falcons over Buccaneers: Atlanta desperately needs to get a win to stay in the playoff race while it looks like Tampa is in total disarray on the coaching staff.

Seahawks over Rams: I was going to take St. Louis then remembered that Kyle Boller will be under center for the Rams, which is enough for me to take Seattle.

Panthers over Jets: Here is my "Upset Special Pick of the Week" as I see Carolina's rushing attack outscoring New York's and their defense getting turnovers from the Jets' rookie QB.

Dolphins over Bills: Miami is playing pretty good considering their tough schedule and may make a run for the post season while Buffalo is uncertain who will be their head coach from week to week.

Chargers over Chiefs: San Diego is starting to look like one of the better teams in the league and while Kansas City upset the Steelers last week, don't expect a repeat on the road.

49ers over Jaguars: Which Jacksonville team will show up this week is a mystery to most but you can expect San Francisco to run the ball all day for sure.

Vikings over Bears: Minnesota is clicking on all cylinders and Chicago is trying t figure out why they traded for a QB that is throwing interceptions at a record pace.

Cardinals over Titans: Even though Tennessee is undefeated with Vince Young, Arizona is playing like the Super Bowl team of last year.

Saints over Patriots (Monday night): Great matchup for prime time, as New England faces an offense as good as theirs and the key to this game will be which defense can slow down the other just enough to pull out a win.

Last week: 9-6

Season record: 107-52 (67%)
