Greg’s NFL Week 14 Picks


Estimated reading time: 3 minute(s)

LAST WEEK: 9-7 :: OVERALL: 116-75-1

After a very mediocre week 13 (especially thanks to two late changes – Washington and Green Bay, but also thanks to an incorrectly published pick, Atlanta over San Diego) … I am starting to think I should just give up for this year!

But I press on. Here’s how week 14 might turn out.

Oakland (3-9) at San Diego (4-8)

Why are these Thursday Night games so easy to pick? WINNER: San Diego.

Atlanta (8-4) at New Orleans (6-6)

Big NFC South divisional matchup. New Orleans needs to win. WINNER: New Orleans

Minnesota (7-5) at Detroit (0-12)

Can Detroit win a game? Something tells me this is their best chance of their remaining schedule. WINNER: Minnesota

Houston (5-7) at Green Bay (5-7)

Two teams that are hard to figure out, but gotta give the nod to the home, cold-weather team. WINNER: Green Bay

Jacksonville (4-8) at Chicago (6-6)

It would be surprising if the Jags could finish this game with more points than the Bears. They seem to have packed it in already. WINNER: Chicago

Cincinnati (1-10) at Indianapolis (8-4)

Not long ago this would have been a very exciting game. Lots of offense. This time, it will be one-sided. WINNER: Indianapolis

Philadelphia (6-5-1) at NY Giants (11-1)

I still can’t figure why the Giants have only one loss. (And that was to Cleveland!) But Philly won’t stop them. WINNER: NY Giants

Cleveland (4-8) at Tennessee (11-1)

Tennessee gets a “patsy” for a second straight week. WINNER: Tennessee

New England (7-5) at Seattle (2-10)

Buffalo would like some help from Seattle, and the Pats are going all the way across the country, but… WINNER: New England

NY Jets (8-4) at San Francisco (4-8)

Can the 49ers beat a team from the AFC East for a second straight week? WINNER: NY Jets

Kansas City (2-10) at Denver (7-5)

One of KC’s two wins was against Denver earlier this season. Denver just shellacked the Jets. Yeah… WINNER: Denver

Miami (7-5) at Buffalo (6-6)

In the first ever NFL regular season game in Canada, the Bills are in a must-win situation, with their starting QB sitting on the bench. Still, can’t go against my team. WINNER: Buffalo

Dallas (8-4) at Pittsburgh (9-3)

This could be a good game, because Dallas can score points quickly. But look for the Steelers D to dominate Big D. WINNER: Pittsburgh

St. Louis (2-10) at Arizona (7-5)

Can Arizona finally win their division this week??? The answer is yes. WINNER: Arizona

Washington (7-5) at Baltimore (8-4)

Which team is the home team here? Both should feel at home. WINNER: Baltimore

Tampa Bay (9-3) at Carolina (9-3)

Another great NFC South matchup. This one is for the division lead. Tough call. Really could go either way, so I almost always give the edge to the home team there. WINNER: Carolina

CONCLUSION

Bills fans are rooting for Seattle, San Francisco, Cincinnati and Washington (sorta). And, of course, the Bills. That would be a great weekend!!

Here’s hopin…
Go Bills!
