Thursday, Dec. 15th-

Los Angeles Rams at Seattle Seahawks:

Jared Goff and the Rams are simply overwhelmed in this one.  Richard Sherman twice intercepts the rookie, and the Seahawks roll to an easy Thursday night victory.

The Pick:  Seahawks 38  Rams 16

Saturday, Dec. 17th-

Miami Dolphins at New York Jets:

The Jets have no intention on letting the white hot Patriots take this division.  The defense is really firing all all cylinders at this point, limiting their second straight opponent to zero TD’s.

The Pick:  Jets 20  Dolphins 9

Sunday, Dec. 18th-

Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears:

After a tough bout with the Seahawks a week ago, a matchup with the Bears is just what the doctor ordered for the Packers.  Jordy Nelson has himself a really nice day, catching 11 balls for 156 yards and two TD’s.  The Bears frustrating season continues.

The Pick:  Packers 31  Bears 16

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Dallas Cowboys:

Dak Prescott has been very impressive for a rookie, but the mental blow of losing Tony Romo seems to loom over the rest of the team.  The Buccaneers come into Dallas and absolutely torch them, as Jameis Winston throws for 445 yards and four TD’s.  Tough blow for the Cowboys, no doubt about it.

The Pick:  Buccaneers 37  Cowboys 17

Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans:

The Jaguars are now making a very serious push at a division title.  A seemingly easy game against the Texans turns into a tough bout when Blake Bortles reverts to his rookie form, throwing three interceptions.  Tom Savage gets his first career win in this content.

The Pick:  Texans 17  Jaguars 13

Cleveland Browns at Buffalo Bills:

Tyrod Taylor vs. RGIII turns into a very fun, high scoring affair as both quarterbacks play very well.  RGIII hits Josh Gordon twice in this contest for touchdowns, as Gordon finishes the day with 189 yards on eight receptions.  The Browns out-duel the Bills on this day.

The Pick:  Browns 38  Bills 31

Philadelphia Eagles at Baltimore Ravens:

The Ravens will be hard pressed to make the playoffs as they are still looking up at the Bengals and Steelers in their own division alone.  However, playing the helpless Eagles helps their case.  For all intensive purposes, this game was over by the end of the first quarter.

The Pick:  Ravens 28  Eagles 10

Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs:

The Chiefs, in an effort to make a late season run towards a possible playoff push waste no time in putting the Titans to bed.  Justin Houston makes life completely miserable for Marcus Mariota the the Titans defense cannot stop Travis Kelce as he totals 7 catches for 102 yards and two TD’s.

The Pick:  Chiefs 30  Titans 6

Detroit Lions at New York Giants:

Both of these teams have been given playoff hope, mostly in part to quarterback injuries within their respected divisions.  The home team prevails here as Eli Manning has a near flawless day, and Stafford stumbles with two INT’s.

The Pick:  Giants 27  Lions 20

Indianapolis Colts at Minnesota Vikings:

The Colts have an opportunity to put some distance between themselves and the Jaguars.  Andrew Luck plays a fantastic game, throwing for 344 yards and three TD’s against a mean Vikings defense.  It was exactly what the Colts needed to get it done on this day.

The Pick:  Colts 27  Vikings 17

New Orleans Saints at Arizona Cardinals:

Another road game, another struggle for the Saints.  Carson Palmer rebounds from two first quarter turnovers and finishes the day with four TD passes.

The Pick:  Cardinals 34  Saints 23

San Francisco 49ers at Atlanta Falcons:

In a battle of two teams that may prefer to lose and improve their draft status, someone has to win—although the play may indicate that neither team should win.  In a sloppy, turnover filled ordeal, the home team comes out with the win.

The Pick:  Falcons 16  49ers 12

New England Patriots at Denver Broncos:

The piping hot Patriots bring their high octane offense back to the Mile High City in an attempt to do better than they did last year.  Denver is never nice to Tom Brady however, as Von Miller collects three sacks and Brady is forced in to three interceptions.  The quarterback may be different but the result is the same.  Paxton Lynch throws for 289 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions—very possibly his best game as a professional to date, all things considered.

The Pick:  Broncos 24  Patriots 17

Oakland Raiders at San Diego Chargers:

The Raiders get to head south to play, what could be, their very last game in San Diego.  The Chargers have been downright pathetic for the second straight season, and Oakland adds to that for the Chargers as they score a dominant road win.

The Pick:  Raiders 42  Chargers 17

Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals:

After last years playoff game, this game in Cincinnati has been circled on Bengals fans calendars since the schedule came out.  The fans really let the Steelers have it, and help lift the team to a hard-fought, emotional win.  In total, there are a combined seven personal foul calls, but did we really expect anything different from these two teams?

The Pick:  Bengals 24  Steelers 20

Monday, Dec. 19th- 

Carolina Panthers at Washington Redskins:

The Panthers already have their sights set on the playoffs, but on this night, somewhat overlook the Redskins and their more-than-capable offense.  Kirk Cousins has a nice night, finding Desean Jackson deep multiple times, and the Redskins find a way to upset the defending NFC champs.

The Pick:  Redskins 26  Panthers 20
