Week 15 NFL Picks And Predictions

Lots of key games in playoff races this week.

What I thought was going to be an easy week 14, was anything but. I finished 10-6 which is ok, but not great. Lost a lot of games that I thought were headed for the win column. Tampa was up 14 before Jacksonville exploded. Cincinnati led for 59:30 minutes before Houston won, Carolina blew a large first half lead, Miami imploded, and the fear I had in the Arizona/San Francisco game did come true. Through 14 weeks I am now 135-73. Here are this weeks picks.

Atlanta 28 Jacksonville 10

Jaguars sure played well against Tampa, but the Falcons are still playing for a wild card spot. I like the Falcons in this one.

Dallas 24 Tampa Bay 14

Cowboys coming off a tough loss while the Buccaneers have quit. I like the Cowboys in this one.

Houston 24 Carolina 16

Not sure how the Texans keep winning but they do. Still have a reason to keep playing for a bye in the playoffs. Panthers still have some fight but I like the Texans.

Cincinnati 21 St. Louis 13

Bengals are falling out of playoff race, but Rams are not good. I like the Bengals in this one.

Green Bay 35 Kansas City 13

No reason the Packers should lose this game. Chiefs are a mess and not very good. Pack should keep rolling.

Buffalo 21 Miami 17

Remember in early October when the Bills were good. They aren't anymore, but either are the Dolphins. I like Buffalo in a close one.

New Orleans 31 Minnesota 21

Saints are sure rolling. Vikings showed a great effort against the Lions. I like the Saints in this one.

Seattle 24 Chicago 16

Seahawks have been playing well and the Bears are in a free fall. I need to follow the gut and not the heart. I'll take Seattle.

Tennessee 23 Indianapolis 17

Titans are playing hard and still have a chance at a wild card. Colts are ready for the off season. I like the Titans.

NY Giants 28 Washington 17

Giants had a great win at Dallas and the Redskins hung with New England. I'm gonna go with the Giants.

Arizona 24 Cleveland 13

Cardinals still giving a great effort and the Browns aren't doing much of anything. I like the Cardinals at home.

Detroit 24 Oakland 17

Lions closing in on playoff spot while the Raiders are really struggling. Gonna take the Lions.

New England 31 Denver 21

Tebow time comes to an end at least this week. I like the Patriots over the Broncos.

NY Jets 23 Philadelphia 14

Jets still in must win mode while the Eagles are just ending this awful season. Gonna go with the Jets.

Baltimore 21 San Diego 14

Ravens need to keep up with Pittsburgh. Won't be easy but I think they'll take one from the Chargers.

Pittsburgh 24 San Francisco 20

Steelers have a lot more to play for. This pick could change if Big Ben doesn't play. Since I think he will I'll take them over the niners.
