AFC Weekly Picks


Tennessee at Buffalo
-Two very struggling teams with offenses and defenses ranked at the bottom of the NFL. I think you are going to have a good game. Tennessee has a lot of confidence coming off of that win over Pittsburgh. And who wouldn’t. That would be the highlight of my season. Hasselbeck and Locker are both having very similar season, so there was not a period of adjustment, or at least not a huge one. Chris Johnson has been getting it going lately as well. I look for the Titan to pull away from this one.

27-17; Titans

Cleveland at Indianapolis
-We have another matchup of the century in this game. Cleveland has had the same team, and scheme since 19-before christ. They have a decent Defense and Trent Richardson should have fun against a 29th ranked Run D for Indy, but Luck is still adjusting to becoming a pro. I will have to take Indianapolis though. Cleveland winning two in a row is a stroke of luck. If it happens, kudos to them, but won’t believe it until I see it. Luck is starting to hit his stride with 1400+ and 7TD’s and the Colts Pass D is solid at 200.0 Y/G.

31-20; Colts

Baltimore at Houston

– With Ray Lewis out, Terrell Suggs, out as well, look for Arian Foster to have another Fantasy day against a struggling Baltimore Defense. Ngata is good, but a DT and a S in Ed Reed to not make a defense. It will be interesting to see how Houston plays without Cushing. Also getting torched by the Packers last week through the air should give Flacco-Smith combo some fun on the chalkboard this week. I a calling a close game, and Houston is getting hit hard with 2 in a row.

29-26; Baltimore

NY Jets at New England

– I know New England is having issue with the win column this season, but Brady is still Brady, they have a running game, and the Defense has come out of no-where. The Jets… ’nuff said.

35-13 Patriots

Jacksonville at Oakland
-The Bengals might not have a lot going for them this season, but the one bright side of this season is that it looks like they have won the Carson Palmer trade. he is not producing. NFLN has already said he is not the answer and will probably be gone within two years. But he is enough to beat Jacksonville.

25-10; Raiders

Pittsburgh at Cincinnati
-Polamalu (Out), Timmons(Questionable-Probable); however, Keisel, Harrison, Clark (ALL HEALTHY). Roethlisberger, assuming he doesn’t have some kind of scratch above his left elbow that the media is going to blow up as a legit injury, will play. Mike Wallace can out run any human on Earth, and Antonio Brown is a thorn in the Bengals side. Andy Dalton has thrown 9 interceptions this season, but the Steelers’ DB’s have, like the Bengals, 1 interception.

37-14 Steelers.
