Jeremy’s Picks: Looking for a bounce back week after my 1st sub .500 week

Lions (+5) at Chiefs: 2 bad teams facing off this week. I don’t like bad teams giving almost a TD even at home. Matthew Stafford and Megatron should be able to put some points on the board. I think the Lions can keep it close, look out for a back door cover here.

Cardinals (-4.5) at Browns: I know the Cardinals had a tough game Monday night against the lowly Ravens, but they have a high powered offense and a great defense. I expect a bounce back week (just like my picks) and they run away with this game. Browns are playing tough at times, but this is my NFC Championship pick. Go Cards!!

Seahawks (-5.5) at Cowboys: I think the Seahawks are going to start waking up, its mid way through the season so its now or never. I still think they are overrated, but the Cowboys are still decimated with injuries. Matt Cassel at QB again and some locker room controversy with Greg Hardy and Dez Bryant will doom the Cowboys this week and Seattle gets back to 4-4.

Chargers (+3) at Ravens: San Diego is a very frustrating team to watch at times. They can put up numbers rivaling any offense, but the defense has been awful at times (which is surprising to me). The Ravens played the Cardinals tough on monday night, and could rack up a few more wins this season but I don’t think this is the week. Rivers will be throwing 40+ times like usual and Keenan Allen is healthy. Chargers make a comeback in the AFC West.

Vikings (-1) at Bears: Who is Stefon Diggs? Well, he is Teddy “Bear Killer” Bridgewater’s new favorite target!! The Vikings were everyone’s sleeper pick to make the playoffs this year and the past couple weeks they have been playing well, even without AP pulling the load. They have been beating some bad teams, so we will see how they do in upcoming weeks. But for now, all you can do it play the teams on your schedule and that means beating up on the bottom feeding Bears.

Jose’s Picks:

After a strong week, I look to keep the consistency up by giving you all another solid group of picks! Enjoy…

Detroit (+5) vs Kansas City: Detroit has been lighting up the score board the last 2 weeks putting up 34 and 19 points respectively. Honestly i think its more about KC not having full control over their games than Detroit finally waking up their inner Lions. They will keep it close if not win it all!

San Francisco (+8.5) at St. Louis: I hate to go with my team this year, but i think it’s unfair that they built a 10′ tall brick wall on their end zone. SF will start their ground and pound approach while keeping their Defense strong against the Rams.

Arizona (-4.5) at Cleveland: Arizona will be looking to their RB’s to move the sticks. But when the defense gets loose on who ever the Browns put under center, they will consume them. I don’t even think Johnny Football is able to out run a strong d-line coming to him.

San Diego (+3) at Baltimore: The Ravens are left wingless without any signs of life. So when Vegas threw them a -3, i say thank you and pick SD! Rivers has been solid top 5 QB  in a bunch of categories, so consider the pass game a plus against the hurting Ravens.

Carolina (-7) vs Indianapolis: I live 20 miles away from Bank of America stadium and yet i can steal hear the Panther’s ROAR!!! This team is in a streak were the whole team is in sync. Newton is making veteran reads and finding Ted Ginn Jr. for some serious yards. While Stewart and Tolbert are raking in the yard on the ground. The defense silent killer has been Josh Norman CB and his interception and great coverage against the routes.

Zac’s Picks:

I’ve gone 4-1 the last 2 weeks, looking to ride the hot hand!

Oakland (+2.5) vs New York (Jets): The Jets will be travelling west to Oakland after almost escaping with a win up in Foxboro last week.  Fitzpatrick has been playing well for the Jets and so has their defense, but don’t overlook the 3-3 Raiders.  They put on an impressive performance against the Chargers last week, winning in San Diego 37-29.  The Raiders haven’t beat the Jets since 2011 but this may be the year they do it again.

Detroit vs Kansas City (+5): I think the rule of thumb is never to bet on two bad teams playing in London because anything can happen (think Jacksonville vs Buffalo just one week ago).  These two teams have had their woes this year, but Kansas City did show me something last week against Pittsburgh with Charcandrick West filling in nicely at tailback, rushing for 110 yards and 1 TD.  However 5 points is a large spread for a Lions team who does have weapons on offense, as long as they can protect the ball and stop with the turnovers.  I think this will be a lower scoring game until the 2nd half when Detroit finds a way to close in, potentially winning this game outright.

New Orleans (-3.5) vs New York (Giants):  The Saints are not the high flying team of the past and although they’ve always put their offense ahead of their defense, this year’s team is just pedestrian at best.  However the Giants have notoriously had a tough time down in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome where it gets very loud and may throw off a Giants team who’s rhythm relies so much on communicating out of the hurry up no huddle offense.  The Giants defense sorely needs JPP back this week (he will not play this week) as he is not only a pass rushing threat but also can help this ailing run stopping defense.  It will be a home coming for the likes of Eli Manning (childhood), Ruben Randle (LSU), Odell Beckham Jr (LSU), Orleans Darkwa (Tulane), among others, but New Orleans may spoil their southern home cooking after this game is done.

Green Bay (-2) at Denver: The battle of two unbeaten 6-0 teams both coming off byes on prime time Sunday night!  This is a match-up to watch between Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers.  However this isn’t the Manning of the past, already throwing 10 interceptions.  The Packers boast a defense that will look to take advantage of an aging Manning and I see Green Bay running away with this game.

Minnesota (-1) at Chicago: This is a battle of the NFC North with two teams ranking in the bottom half in offense but the top half in defense. Weather shouldn’t be a factor as it’s expected to be 65 and sunny on Sunday so expect a tough match-up that will come down to the wire between these two foes with the Vikings leaving Chicago with a W.
