Week 15 picks!!

Posted: December 15, 2011 by djplaymaker in NFL

What a week we had in the NFL! We still have the Packers still undefeated, the Texans clinching their 1st ever play-off appearance w/ a come from behind win in Cincy, Todd Haley & Tony Sparino losing their jobs, another Tebow miracle, another Dallas choke-job & James Harrison being suspended for a helmet- to- helmet hit on Colt McCoy while Holgremn admitting to the press that the Browns didn’t test him in that game for concussion like symptons. I wonder what we have for week 15. Remember, 3 more weeks til the real season begins.

Thursday

Jacksonville vs Atlanta- The Falcons are still in the wild card race. They had to come back from 14 down to beat the Panthers on the road. In that game, both Roddy White & Julio Jones scored & Matt Ryan threw for 4 tds. For the Jags, they’re playing for pride & hoping that new ownership doesn’t move them out of Jacksonville, even though their fans don’t show up. The Falcons are 12 pt home faves.

Playmaker: Take the Falcons & the over

Saturday

Dallas vs Tampa Bay- The Cowboys are coming into this game scratching their heads after another loss, this time to their divisional rival the Giants. They were up by 14 w/ 5 mins to go & the defense let Eli come back on them. It was also bad enough that they lost Demarco Murrary after he fractured his ankle. To make matters worse, they already put Jason Garrett on the hot seat. As for the Bucs, they, along w/ Josh Freeman are a big disappointment this season. Time to regroup for next season. The Cowboys are a td road fave.

Playmaker: It’s still December & Romo’s doesn’t do well in this month. Something tells me to take the Bucs & cover the spread. (I still love you Letty bear)

Sunday

Miami vs Buffalo- Both teams are coming off losses, however one coach got fired for his loss. In my opinion, they should had waited to fire Sparino after the season if they didn’t like the results. However, I give them credit for going 4-1 after starting off 0-7. The Bills had the injury bug hit them & since Ryan Fitzpatrick got his extension, he hasn’t been the same. The Dolphins won the 1st match-up in South Beach, now the rematch is in Buffalo & there is no spread for this game.

Playmaker: Depends on the weather, but I still like the Dolphins to win the game.

Randy:

Seattle vs Chicago- The Bears have fallen out the play-off race after being Tebowed last week in Denver. They were up 10-0 & dominating the game defensively for 3 qtrs til it happened. Plus, it hurts that Marion Barber made two bonehead decisions (going out of bounds in the 4th qtr instead of letting the clock run & getting stripped in ot). The Seahawks have been hot lately, especially Marshawn “Skittles” Lynch, who has gone into beast mode. They are still in the hunt for the wild card race believe or not. The Bears are 3.5 home faves.

Playmaker: They haven’t been the same since Cutler & Forte went down. I like the Seahawks & take the cover

Noez:

Randy:

Carolina vs Houston- 1st of all, congrats to the Texans for clinching the AFC Sotuh & doing it w/ T.J Yates as your starting qb. Nice come from behind win in Cincy to prove the city & the league. The Panthers are still young & Cam Newton has put up impressive stats, but the defense has hurt the team. The Texans could rest players, but they have 10 wins as well as New England & Baltimore & are fighting for homefield for at least 1 playoff game. The Texans are 6 pt faves.

Playmaker: I like the Texans to carry the momentum. Take them & the cover also

Noez:

Randy:

Tennessee vs Indianapolis- Poor Jake Locklear. He could had been a hero if they could gotten that touchdown to defeat the Saints. He did a hell of a job relieving Hasselback when he aggravated a cramp in his leg though. The Colts are still winless, but got Peyton Manning to throw footballs for the 1st time in a while. If he comes back & play at least 1 of the last 3 games, he’s doing himself a disservice. The Titans are a touchdown road fave.

Playmaker: If Locklear struggles, just hand the rock to Chris Johnson. Titans & take the spread.

Noez:

Randy: Titans

Green Bay vs Kansas City- The Packers look impressive last week vs the Raiders, but took a blow when Greg Jennings hurt his knee. It probably doesn’t matter because they are deep in wr & they are looking to run the table, even though Aaron Rodgers says McCarthy may rest some players after they clinch homefield advantage. As for the Chiefs, the only thing they have to talk about is Romeo Crennel taking over for Todd Haley after they fired him & Kyle Orton starting for this game. The Packers are 13 pt road faves.

Playmaker: Take the Pack & the over

Noez:

Randy:

New Orleans vs Minnesota – The Saints can clinch the NFC South w/ a win this week over the Vikings. They are also competing w/ the 49ers for the 2nd seed in the NFC. The Vikings were robbed by the officials not calling a blatant facemask on the final play of the game in Detroit. Only bright spots for the Vikings are Joe Webb almost leading a comeback after relieving a struggling Christian Ponder, Percy Harvin balling out of control & Leslie Frazier getting a vote of confidence for return next yr. The Saints are 6.5 road faves.

Playmaker: I like the Saints & the over.

Noez:

Randy:

Washington vs N.Y. Giants- The Giants are riding high after that come from behind win in Dallas. Like they say, you can’t say elite w/out saying Eli. He’s starting to be up there w/ the echelon qb’s of the league. As for the Redskins, they gave the Pats a run for their money. It had to take a Rex Grossman int to deny the dream of upsetting the Pats. The Giants control their own destiny in the NFC East. Win out & the division is theirs. The Giants are 6.5 home faves.

Playmaker: I like the Giants & take the over. However, I hope this isn’t a trap game for them because they got the Jets next week.

Noez:

Randy:

Cincinnati vs St. Louis- The Bengals are wondering what the hell happened to them on the final play of the game as the Texans. That loss alone moved the Jets passed them in the wild card race. They still have hope, but they need help. As for the Rams, there’s aways next yr. The Bengals are 6 pt road faves.

Playmaker: The Bengals & the over.

Noez:

Randy:

Detroit vs Oakland- The Raiders are returning to the Black Hole after getting boots to asses to them by the Packers. Carson Palmer had his 3rd game of 3 ints in a game & is closing in on Phillip Rivers & Josh Freeman for most ints thrown this yr. The Lions are coming off a close win vs the Vikings & will be motivated by the return of N’Damokung Suh, who was suspended for 2 games after his stomp on a Packers lineman. Both teams are in the playoff, the Lions for the wild card & the Raiders for the AFC west title. The Lions are a 1 pt road fave.

Playmaker: I like the Lions to win & take the slight under.

Noez:

Randy:

Cleveland vs Arizona- My Browns are coming a 14-3 loss to the Steelers. I give them credit for staying close w/ them. However, everything changed when McCoy got laid out by Harrison & the staff was dumb enough to throw him back in the game when he has a concussion. As for the Cardinals, they surprised the 49ers last week & along w/ the Seahawks a game under .500. The Cards are a td home fave.

Playmaker: I like my Browns to win & cover the spread

Noez:

Randy:

New England vs Denver- Both teams are coming off wins, but the Broncos are the media darlings coming into this game. Tebow vs Brady. Tebow’s 7-1 since he took over for Orton, We know he’s not your typical quarterback, but he wins games, yet when they ask Fox or Elway is he the long term answer, they won’t say. For the Patroits, they still dominate & win, but their defense is still suspect & the highlight of the game last week was when Brady got into a shouting match w/ his qb coach after throwing a int. I bet you Brady doesn’t care that Tebow’s getting more attention than him, The Pats are a 6 pt road fave.

Playmaker: This is the week Tebow-mania goes down Take the Pats & the points

Noez:

Randy:

N.Y. Jets vs Philadelphia- The Jets are back in the wild card race after their performance @ home vs the Chiefs. Mark Sanchez had 4 tds total (2 rushing & 2 passing). I think he was getting tired of the N.Y. media getting on his back about his performance. The Eagles got back to their winning ways in South Beach, but it took Michael Vick to come back to regain their identity. I know the Eagles want to finish strong, but the Jets have something to play for. The Eagles are a fg fave @ home.

Playmaker: If the Eagles had a winning record & playing for something, then my pick’s on them. However, it’s gonna be close & I like the Jets to sneak out of Philly w/ a close win & take the points. Xoxoxo to my Havana gf!!

Noez:

Randy:

Baltimore vs San Diego- The Ravens are in the competition for the best record in the AFC. They dominated the winless Colts last week & should clinch the AFC north w/ a win & a Steelers loss. The Chargers have won 2 straight, but it may be too little, too late to make their annual last push for the AFC West title. It’s gonna be a great game for the Sunday night viewers & Ray Lewis will make his return that game. The Ravens are 2.5 road faves.

Playmaker: Take the Ravens & the points.

Noez:

Randy:

Monday

Pittsburgh vs San Francisco- Monday night’s game is gonna be better than last Monday’s game I’ll tell you that. The Steelers are coming a 14-3 win over my Browns, but might have questions. They know that James Harrison got suspended for this game, yet he’s appealing it (don’t waste your time doing that) & Ben Roethesberger still has that high ankle sprain. For the 49ers, they were surprised in Arizona & they don’t know if Patrick Willis is gonna play this game. Both teams have a hell of a defense. This will be a smash mouth game. No spread for this game.

Playmaker: I like the 49ers to be ready for prime time

Last week, yours truly & Randy were tied w/ 12-4 while Noez finished w/ 9-7. Let’s see if Randy can continue his Tebow like magic for his picks. Happy b-day shoutouts to Omni Chang, Christina Henshall, Edwin Cano, Lydia Avila, Elidio Avila, Diego Abraham (keep doing your thang on the photography tip), Stacy Ciesa, Nitanna Villasenor, Monica Villar Cruz, Rosemary Prieto & Vanessa Alva. Good luck to my fantasy football team as the play-offs start for them & Clipper Nation, be glad that you got CP3, but don’t be hating on Laker Nation when Dwight Howard aka Superman arrives. Til then, I’m gone.
