NFL Week 14 Picks

NickFoles6My Overall Record: 120-73

Minnesota @ Baltimore

The Ravens are attempting a late-season playoff push while the Vikings have nothing to play for.

Pick: Baltimore 27, Minnesota 13

Indianapolis @ Cincinnati

Ever since defeating the Denver Broncos, the Colts just haven’t looked like a playoff team. They’ve struggled mightily against inferior opponents, and if they weren’t in such a week division they might have trouble making it as a Wild Card. The Bengals defense has shutdown some pretty good quarterbacks this year, I think this is a win for Cincy at home.

Pick: Cincinnati 28, Indianapolis 23

Atlanta @ Green Bay

The Packers may or may not have Aaron Rodgers. But I think they still put together a good showing at home either way in a last-ditch effort to save the season against a Falcon team that has already been eliminated from contention.

Pick: Green Bay 24, Atlanta 20

Cleveland @ New England

New England comes out and takes care of business, taking advantage of the soft part of their schedule.

Pick: New England 33, Cleveland 20

Oakland @ New York

I think the Jets are due to bounce back and pick up an ugly win at home now that Geno Smith is on the bench.

Pick: New York 17, Oakland 10

Detroit @ Philadelphia

I don’t trust the Lions on the road. And the Eagles can now be trusted at home again. Philly with a hot quarterback and hotter defense wins it at home.

Pick: Philadelphia 24, Detroit 21

Miami @ Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh suffered a crushing blow with their loss at Baltimore last week, but they’ve had long rest, and they’ve played much better as of late.

Pick: Pittsburgh 27, Miami 13

Buffalo @ Tampa Bay

Much like the surging Jacksonville Jaguars, the Tampa Bay Bucs are on a bit of a roll. They’re winning close games instead of losing them like they were earlier in the year. I think they win at home.

Pick: Tampa Bay 27, Buffalo 23

Kansas City @ Washington

After losing three in a row, Kansas City gets treated to the type of low-quality opponent that they’ve beaten up on all season. Andy gets his 10th win this Sunday.

Pick: Kansas City 30, Washington 20

Tennessee @ Denver

Snow or no snow, Peyton Manning rolls in a great matchup against a poor Titan secondary.

Pick: Denver 33, Tennessee 23

St. Louis @ Arizona

Bounce back game for the Cardinals. They can’t afford to take another loss and stay in the playoff picture.

Pick: Arizona 27, St. Louis 10

New York Giants @ San Diego

The Giants have won some ugly games recently, but I don’t think they’re going out west and coming back with a win over San Diego.

Pick: San Diego 23, New York 17

Seattle @ San Francisco

After blowing out the Saints, I think Seattle is ripe for a letdown. Revenge game for Kaepernick and the Niners at home, who are a much healthier team than they were in Week 2.

Pick: San Francisco 20, Seattle 17

Carolina @ New Orleans

I don’t think Drew Brees is turning in two straight poor outings, especially in a game of this magnitude. Its time for Carolina’s winning streak to end.

Pick: New Orleans 23, Carolina 20

Dallas @ Chicago

Josh McCown has played very well in relief of Jay Cutler, but I still give the edge to Dallas. They’ve won two straight, and Chicago’s defense has been absolutely putrid.

Pick: Dallas 31, Chicago 23

With Week 17′s match against the Dallas Cowboys shaping up to be a showdown for the division, Denny Basens and Jeff Kolsky are planning to get a group together to watch the game at XFINITY Live, and we would like to extend invitations to any and all readers of to come out and join us. We sincerely appreciate all who read, comment, and make this website great, and we’d love the opportunity to meet some of the readers and experience a great game together.

  1. Solid Pocks across the Board Denny

    Why the Colts did not trade for a WR when
    Reggie Wayne went down earlier in the Season is beyond me..
    Instead they Traded a 1St Arounder for arB Trent Richardson who has a
    1.5Yard Carry Average with the Colts and has been demoted to the Bench
    Giants WR Nicks was available for Trade since he is walking in free-Agency after this Season.. But clearly,The Colts Offense and QB Luck’s confidence has diminished since losing War Reggie Wayne
    Anyways, that’s there problem

    My upset Specials for the Week

    Falcons over the Packers who have Rodhers sitting out again and with a loss, may end up sitting out for remainder of the Season and the Packers Defense has been exposed in recent weeks as the Packers Offense has struggled without Rodgers.. Look for big game by Healthy RB Steve Jackson and a good day passing by QB Matt Ryan essentially knocking the Packers out of the Playoff Race

    Rams over the Cardinals — a hobbled QB Palmer against one of the best pass rushing DL’s in the Rans is not a good sign for the Cardinals
    I like the Rams with a late FG to win 23-20

    Besides the Lions/Eagles Game,
    The Bears/Cowboys and Saints/Panthers games will have the Winners in first Place in their respective Divsions which essentially has the feel and importance of a Playoff Game..
    The 49ers are in a must win I believe to keep ahead of
    Teans like Cardinals,Panthers, Eagles & Cowboys as far as Wild-Card goes

    In the AFC, the loser of Steelers/Dolphins are essentially
    Eliminated in must wins for both clubs..

    It’s great to see so many Teams still in the Playoff Race and to have so many meaningful Fames on schedule and who would have thought that the Eagles with 4 Games to Play are in control of their own Destiny
    Go Eagles..
    Losses by the 49ers,Panthers,Cardinals and Bears with an Eagle Win really put them in a good Position to get a Wildcard if they finish 3-1 and a 10-6 Record even with a loss to Cowboys to finish..
    49ers & Panthers have difficult finishing games on their Schedule and are not a shoe-in for a Wild-Card..
