Week 14 picks!!

Posted: December 7, 2011 by djplaymaker in NFL

Only 4 more games left til the real party begins! So far, this season has been exciting & surprising. Last week, we saw Aaron Rodgers lead the Packers to a thrilling last second win to remain perfect & clinch the NFC North. Speaking of clinching divisions, congrats to the 49ers for winning the NFC west. Tebow worked his magic again for the Broncos, & the Bears got the injury bug again, this time it caught Matt Forte. Oh yeah, last week Donovan McNabb was granted his release from the Vikings & he cleared waivers by no one picking him up. I wonder what we got planned for this week. Before I start, one love to my “lil sis” Dez Claiborne as she & her husband Chris welcomed Ms Payton Rae into the world. Congrats to ya & love ya’ll

Thursday

Cleveland vs Pittsburgh- The most hated rivalry of my childhood kicks off this week’s games on Thursday. The Steelers are coming off a impressive win over the Bengals while my Browns were popped in the mouth by the Ravens, especially Ray Rice as he ran for 208 yds rushing. I know they like to say to throw out the records whenever these two teams play, however the Steelers have had our number. Our problem is we can’t stop the run & we’re offensively challenged. Add too many dropped passes (we don’t have Braylon Edwards anymore people) The Steelers are 13 pt home faves.

Playmaker: You already know where I’m going w/ this. We’ve beaten them before on a Thursday night. Anything can happen. I like the Browns & the under

Sunday

Indianapolis vs Baltimore- The Ravens are coming off of destroying my Browns while the Colts made it close of an embarrassing loss to the Patriots. However, they might have Peyton Manning back sometime this season. Like I said last week, why come back when you have nothing to play for. Besides, the division’s Houston to lose. The Ravens are 16 pt home faves.

Playmaker: I like the Ravens to win & take the over

Noez:

Randy:

Kansas City vs N.Y. Jets- The Chiefs came out lucky in Chi-town to get a win. It sure helps that Matt Forte sprains his MCL in the same game. The Jets had a dog hill fight w/ the Redskins before laying the hammer on them. Sanchez played his best game that day by not getting sacked & having no ints. Shone Greene also stepped up that game. Now, they are competing w/ the Titans, Raiders, & Bengals for the final wild card spot. They need help & also to handle their own business to make it happen. The Jets are 9 pt home faves.

Playmaker: Rex’s playoff push starts right now. Take the Jets & cover the spread. What up Havana gf!!

Noez:

Randy:

New Orleans vs Tennessee- The Titans are still in the hunt for the wild card after an impressive win in Buffalo & don’t look now, but Chris Johnson’s starting to get his swagger back. The Saints are coming off a great & hard fought win @ home vs the Lions. Brees would in the discussion for MVP if Aaron Rodgers weren’t putting up impressive numbers. The Saints are probably along w/ the 49ers a legitmate threat to the Packers hope of coming out the NFC for the super bowl. Both teams need a win to add momentum in their playoff pushes. The Saints are 3.5 road faves.

Playmaker- I know the Titans are @ home, but Brees has too many weapons. I like the Saints & take the over.

Noez:

Randy:

Minnesota vs Detroit- Both teams are coming off tough losses. The Lions were overpowered by the Saints & the Vikings were Tebowed in the final seconds @ home. This is the 2nd match-up & the Lions won the 1st match-up in ot in Minnesota. That time, the Vikings had McNabb as their quarterback, now it’s Ponder’s turn. Bright spot for the Lions is they got one more game til Suh returns. There was no spread for this game.

Playmaker: I like the Lions to win this one

Noez:

Randy:

Houston vs Cincinnatti- The Texans beat the Falcons w/ Yates steppin as starter while the Bengals got swept by the Steelers in the head- to-head match-up. As long as they have Foster & Tate to complement Yates, everything’s okay, even w/ Andre Johnson pulling his hammy again & is day to day. The Bengals are in a dog fight for the wild card w/ 3 other teams & I wonder if Dalton & Green are built for the pressure of postseason. The Bengals are a fg home fave.

Playmaker: I like the Texans to come into the ‘Natti & steal this game. Cover the spread as well

Noez:

Randy:

Tampa Bay vs Jacksonville- The battle of Florida. Both teams are coming off losses. Tampa was shown up by Cam Newton & the Panthers on throwback jersey day while the Jags weren’t ready for prime time on Monday night vs the Chargers. It was bad enough that it was the 1st game for them since they sold the team & fired Jack Del Rio. Both teams aren’t going no where. Nothing’s to talk about here. No spread here.

Playmaker: I like Tampa to steal this one on the road

Noez:

Randy:

Atlanta vs Carolina- The Falcons are coming off a road loss in Houston while Cam Newton put his name in the record books last week in their win vs Tampa Bay. He has 13 rushing tds, surpassing Steve Grogan for most rushing tds for a quarterback in a season or rookie yr I think. Last time these two teams faced each other, Newton had a game he wished he can forget. He threw 3 ints that game. The Falcons are competing w/ the Saints for the NFC South title as well as a wild card spot. The Falcons are a fg road faves.

Playmaker: I like the Falcons to win & cover the spread

Noez:

Randy:

Philadelphia vs Miami- The Eagles are coming off an embarrassing performance in Seattle where Marshawn Lynch put the team on his back & Vince Young threw 4 ints in the game & Desean Jackson had another meltdown on the field & off the field as well. The Dolphins are playing inspired ball since they started off 0-7. They gave the Raiders the business last week @ home. Only bright spot for the Eagles is that Michael Vick is returning for this game. Does it matter now. The Dolphins are a fg home fave.

Playmaker: The Eagles are done. I like the Dolphins to win & take the over

Noez:

Randy:

New England vs Washington: The Pats laid the wood on the Colts, even though the score was very close while the Redskins were in a dogfight w/ the Jets til the roof caved in on them. The Pats are fighting for home field advantage w/ 3 teams in the AFC. The Redskins are fighting to stay out of last place w/ the Eagles in the NFC East. The Pats are a td road fave.

Playmaker: I like the Pats to win & take the over.

Noez:

Randy:

San Francisco vs Arizona- The 49ers clinched the NFC west w/ their win over the Rams & now they head into Arizona to face the Cardinals, who defeated the Cowboys in ot. Patrick Willis injured his hammy & will miss some time. I wouldn’t have no problem w/ that since all they want to do is secure home field & the 2nd seed in the NFC since the Packers probably won’t be losing sometime soon. The Cardinals are just playing for pride. The Niners are a fg road fave.

Playmaker: No letdowns. I take the Niners & cover the spread

Noez:

Randy:

Chicago vs Denver- The Bears are 0-2 since Cutler broke his thumb & their offense got thin when Forte sprained his MCL & he doesn’t know when he’s going to return. The Broncos are America’s story for the time as they are 6-1 since Tebow took over as starter. W/ them winning last week & the Raiders losing in South Beach, the whole AFC West is a clusterfuck. Both teams are tied for 1st. For the Bears, I don’t know why Lovie Smith said they won’t go outside of free agency or the waiver wires for help @ qb. McNabb’s still out there, but Devin Hester says it’ll be a waste of time. They need help fast if they still want to make the playoffs. The Broncos are a fg home fave.

Playmaker: Prepare to get Tebowed Chi-town. Take the Broncos & cover the spread

Noez:

Randy:

Buffalo vs San Diego- The Chargers ended their 6 game losing streak w/ an explosive showing on Monday night in Jacksonville while the Bills were taken out by the Titans last week. With the AFC west being so confused, the Bolts can run the table & maybe steal the division. You may never know, but it won’t save Norv Turner & A.J. Smith’s job after the season. The Chargers are a td home fave.

Playmaker: Take the Bolts & the over

Noez:

Randy:

Oakland vs Green Bay- You already know the situation here. The Packers are in the pursuit for perfection & every game is crucial . They needed a last min drive in under a min to defeat the Giants. The Raiders thought they were on a vacation in South Beach & the Dolphins just handed to them. The Packers already clinched the NFC north, next thing for them to achieve is the top seed in the NFC. The Raiders are in a divisional battle w/ the Broncos in the AFC West. The Packers are a 11 pt home fave.

Playmaker: For my Raider fans, I got love for ya’ll, but I can’t see ya stealing that game in Lambeau Field. Take the Packers & the under

Noez;

N.Y. Giants vs Dallas- The NFC East battle for 1st place takes place in big D on the Sunday night showcase. Both teams are coming off losses, however the G-Man were impressive in theirs, giving the Packers all they can handle. As for the Cowboys, Jason Garett has been ridiculed this whole week for icing his own kicker in regulation & them losing in overtime in Arizona. Plus, Tony Romo, despite his great performance, has a love/hate relationship in December w/ a 8-13 record. This is the 1st match-up for them, the last one is to close out the season. The Cowboys are a fg home fave.

Playmaker: I like Eli over Romo. Take the G-Man & cover the spread, (still got love for you Letty bear)

Noez:

Randy:

Monday

St. Louis vs Seattle- The Rams were shut out in the Bay Area while the Seahawks, mostly Marshawn Lynch put the team on his back & dominated an Eagles team who was out of sync offensively & defensively. Don’t look now, but Pete Carroll got his boys back in the playoff hunt. Too little, too late. It’s a divisional battle, so throw the records out the window. No spread here.

Playmaker: I like the Seahawks since the 12th man is contagious

Noez:

Randy:

Last week, rookie Randy was the big dawg w/ his 10-6 record, followed by Noez w/ 9-7 & yours truly rounded it out w/ a 7-9 record. Anything can change next week. Happy b-day shoutouts to Manuel Fierros, my kinfolk Garnetta Dansby, Rosie Godinez, Jonathan Holguin, Kevin Dotson, Jermiah Marks, Valerie Rodriguez, Veronica Hernandez, Jennifer Herman, Marissa Avendano, Louie Vasich, Esmeralda Rodriguez, Catherine Maya, & Salina Rivera. 3 more weeks til the NBA returns. Get ready ya. Once again, one love to Payton Rae Claiborne. Peace, I’m out!!
