NFL Preview – Week 12

Sports No Comment

Giants @ Broncos, Thursday 8:20pm
Ahad: The Broncos are free falling right now and need this game to keep up in the division. Picks: Broncos
Matt: Both teams need a win here, but the Broncos need a win more badly. Will they get it? Not unless their defense plays lights out. Their offense leaves much to be desired. I expect a close game with turnovers the deciding factor. I will be rooting for the Broncos, but I think the Giants take it by a FG. Pick: Giants
Mike: NFL Net is pulling much better Thanksgiving games than the networks lately. When is the last time there has been an interesting game on during the day? With the Lions terrible and the Cowboys decent the last few years, its been a while. Last year’s NFL Net Eagles/Cards game looked interesting until something got into the Eagles and they turned it into a joke quickly. This could happen again as the Broncos look to be spiraling downward. Orton should be back and as long as he can walk, I’m calling it an upgrade. Still, I think the Broncos had their run. Pick: Giants
Evan: I think the Giants got some things figured out last week, although they still aren’t maximizing their potential. Few people know that Justin Tuck loves sweet potato casserole. I have inside information that if the Giants win, his wife is making it for him. If not, he gets nothing. Pick: Giants

Panthers @ Jets, Sunday 1pm
Ahad: Sanchez has been struggling but the Panthers are still a bad team. I like the Jets at home: Pick: Jets
Matt: These teams need a win to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. Both QB’s have been turnover machines, so the team that runs it better should have the advantage. I like the tandem of Deangelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart. Pick: Panthers
Evan: I agree with Ahad’s line of thinking. Pick: Jets
Mike: I can’t explain it, but I like the Panthers. They’ve been playing better the past few weeks. The record may not show it but they’ve played a little tougher competition. Pick: Panthers

Cardinals @ Titans, Sunday 4:15pm
Ahad: The Cards are a different team without Warner and it looks like he isn’t going to play. The Titans are on a hot streak behind Young and Johnson. Pick: Titans
Matt: Something has got to give here. The Cards are 5-0 on the road and the Titans have won 4 in a row. If the Cards are without Warner, then I don’t think they have a chance. The Cardinals have not been stopping the run as well recently than they were earlier in the year, and that will be key versus Chris Johnson. With or without Warner, the Titans are riding high and look for them to continue their winning ways. Pick: Titans
Evan: How many in a row can the Titans win? I don’t think enough to get into the playoffs, but their streak continues here. Pick: Titans
Mike: If I were one to bet, I’d be sprinting away from this one. Last week’s Titans win over the Texans is the first one where I give them credit for playing better. I’m not sure where Ahad gets his info but my sources (the internet) seem to think Warner is going to play. Pick: Cardinals

Steelers @ Ravens, Sunday 8:20pm
Ahad: Big Ben is banged up and Troy is out. The Steelers defense isn’t the same with him on the sidelines. The Ravens came close to beating Indy last week and will finish the deal this week. Pick: Ravens
Matt: The Steelers screwed me over last week with my wager points. Rarely do I put all 10 points on one team, but I did last week. I still can’t believe they lost that game. The Ravens played the Colts tough, but they had to settle for 5 FG’s. If any one of those drives ended up in a touchdown, they would have won. Can the Steelers really lose 3 in a row? I think they might. Pick: Ravens
Evan: Ben is essentially playing with a concussion. I think the Ravens take advantage. Pick: Baltimore
Mike: How come everyone is extra cautious these days about concussions except for Big Ben. After my proclamation that the Steelers were ready to roll into the playoffs, they haven’t done very much. The Ravens have only lost games that you would expect them to lose thus far. Potentially a fun Sunday night game. Pick: Ravens

Patriots @ Saints, Monday 8:30pm
Ahad: The Saints haven’t put up the same offensive numbers the last few weeks, but will be fired up for this game. This game represents a good measuring stick for them. Home field will push the Saints over the top. Pick: Saints
Matt: This one will be a shootout. The Saints are always tough at home, but if any team wouldn’t be fazed by the Superdome atmosphere, it would be the Patriots. Which defense will step up? I am sure the Patriots are still smarting over that loss to Colts two weeks ago. They won’t blow this one. Pick: Patriots
Evan: Nothing would give a devious mind like Belichek more pleasure than knocking off the Saints. Pick: Patriots
Mike: Saints. Saints. Saints. I have no good reason to pick against them until they lose. Pick: Saints

NFL Week 11 Preview

Sports No Comment

Falcons @ Giants, Sunday 1pm
Evan: Giants are awful right now, but the Falcons are also lousy. Pick: New York
Ahad: Giants are struggling; Falcons might not have Turner. Despite this, I am going against Evan. Pick: Atlanta
Matt:
Both teams have been struggling of late, but the Giants had a bye last week, so we will find out if they have corrected what has been ailing them. Matt Ryan will need to have a big game regardless of whether Turner plays or not. The Giants D needs to step up, and I see them getting the job done. Pick: New York
Mike: A tossup of mediocrity. Tossup breaker, the Giants are coming off a bye. Pick: Giants

Colts @ Ravens, Sunday 1pm
Evan: Ravens didn’t get much of a tune up against the Browns. Shell Shock City when Indy comes to town! (Dick Vitale voice). Pick: Colts
Ahad: The loss of Suggs is going to hurt the Ravens defense. Colts are riding high after the comeback against the Patriots. Pick: Colts
Matt: The Ravens could really use a big win at home over the Colts. They will need to run the ball to keep Peyton Manning off the field. With the Ravens shaky in the secondary, Manning should again put up his usual numbers. The Colts have been living dangerously the past 3 weeks and it is bound to catch up with them at some point. I still can’t pick against Manning, though. Pick: Colts
Mike: This has all the makings of a letdown game for the Colts. Tough, emotional win the week before tends to have teams come out weak. But this is Peyton, he doesn’t lose anymore apparently. Pick: Colts

Chargers @ Broncos, Sunday 4:15pm
Evan: Chargers are just better. Pick: San Diego
Ahad: I think I have let be known that I don’t like the Broncos. Pick: Chargers
Matt: The Broncos have crashed with a thud the past couple weeks. Their offense and defense have been exposed. The Chargers have been heating up despite their defense giving up a ton of yards. I believe Chris Simms will be starting in place of Orton, not that it matters. I just don’t think the Broncos have enough offense to contend with the Chargers right now. Pick: San Diego
Mike: I think the loss of Orton is a huge deal. With Simms in they lost any semblance of an offense last week. I don’t know how they didn’t require Grossman in that trade. At least with Orton this pesky Broncos team from earlier in the year might have made a game out of this. Pick: Chargers

Bears @ Eagles, Sunday 8:20pm
Evan: The Eagles are like the FSU of the NFL. Which team will show up? Pick: Philly
Ahad: This game is in Chicago. Momma McNabb will probably have a feast ready for the team. I think they will be able to rebound from a poor effort last week. Cutler will turn the ball over a few times and put the Eagles offense in good positions to score. The key will be the Eagles turning those opportunities into touchdowns rather than field goals. If Sheldon Brown doesn’t play, this game takes on a completely different look. Either way, I like the Birds. They are simply the better team. Pick: Eagles
Matt: The Eagles need a win bad. Cutler needs to not throw interceptions. The Bears defense played better last week, but none of that will matter if Cutler can’t protect the rock. I think the game will be close, but I see the Eagles D making life difficult for the Chicago offense. Pick: Eagles
Mike: These Eagles enjoy picking the ball off and Cutler seems to like to throw them. Of course, most of those guys will have a difficult time grabbing those Cutler throws on crutches. They still have the offense and not having a week of uncertainty with Westbrook should help the gameplan. Pick: Eagles

Titans @ Texans, Monday 8:30pm
Evan: Another monday nighter I will not be watching. Pick: Houston
Ahad: Chris Johnson will torch the Texans defense. Pick: Titans
Matt: I am very intrigued by this game. I like both of these teams, so it is hard to pick. Tennessee has had a rebirth with VY at quarterback. Chris Johnson has had an amazing season. I want to believe in the Texans, but the Titans are hot right now. Pick: Titans
Mike: I haven’t paid close enough attention to the Titans to figure out if Kerry Collins was to blame or if Chris Johnson just woke up. The Texans continue to be a .500 team. I haven’t a clue here but my picks have been dreadful this year and I am running out of weeks to catch up. Pick: Texans

Evan submitted his picks via txt once again.

Bengals @ Steelers, Sunday 1pm
Matt: This is Pittsburgh’s time of year. They have already won 5 in a row and will be cranking it up as they head towards the playoffs. The Bengals are the surprise team of the year so far. They are playing well on both sides of the ball and Ced Benson is having a career year. If they win, they will have a huge leg up on winning the AFC North. I think if Benson can have a decent day on the ground, the Bengals have a good chance to win this one. I will be rooting for the Bengals, but the Steelers at home will be too tough. Steelers by a FG. Pick: Steelers
Ahad: I still find it hard to believe that the Bengals competing for the division title. Marvin Lewis stopped Chad whatever his last name is this week from sending mustard to the Steelers. Despite the fact that the Steelers have a short week, I still like them in this matchup. Losing Chris Henry will slow down the Bengals offense. The Steelers should be able to contain Benson. I don’t think the Bengals have the firepower on defense to win this one. Pick: Steelers
Mike: I’m on Matt’s page. I think more teams are going to jump on the Steelers 8-week preseason schedule that bleeds into the start of the regular season. It’s a pretty good plan. Let the other teams get beat up during the first quarter of the schedule. Take any wins you get as a bonus and go 10-2 the rest of the way against those banged up teams. You’ll make the playoffs every time. That being said, the Bengals are doing it. They aren’t looking ahead because their 3 games after this are against teams with 2 wins or less. Look at the Bengals schedule. They have 4 games left against teams that currently have 2 wins or less. They win those and they get to 10 wins, everything else, again, is a bonus. I think Steelers are rolling enough to pull this one out, but close. Pick: Steelers
Evan: Steelers

Chiefs @ Raiders, Sunday 4:05pm
Matt: These teams are jockeying for draft position for next year. The Raiders won the previous matchup this season by 3 points, and I would expect a similar game this time around. When Oakland has shown up this season, they haven’t played all that bad. They played two close games against the Chargers and beat the Eagles. The Chiefs cut LJ this week and will be relying on their youngsters to carry the load. I think the Raiders, with two week to prepare, will win this one. Pick: Raiders
Ahad: This game might be worse than the Detroit/St. Louis game. Maybe cutting LJ will cause the Chiefs to come together. Look for the Raiders to run the ball, because they sure can’t throw it. I think the running game will be the difference. Pick: Oakland
Mike: You know how in a lot of close matchups in the preview they say that the game will be lost by whoever makes the 1st mistake. What do you say here. The 5th mistake, the 20th? I just want to txt this one in. Pick: Raiders
Evan: Raiders

Eagles @ Chargers, Sunday 4:15pm
Matt: The Eagles did not fare too well on their last trip to the West Coast. The Chargers are playing better, but they always seem to underachieve early. This is their time of year as well, much like the Steelers, to make a strong push towards the playoffs. I expect the Eagles to play better than last week, and much better than they played against the Raiders. Look for the Chargers to blitz a lot to put pressure on McNabb. He did not handle the pressure that well last week. I think the team that wins the 4th quarter will win the game, and that is typically Philip Rivers’ time to shine. Pick: Chargers
Ahad: This week the Eagles have been hit with some losses in the secondary to go along with all of the other injuries. They will be without their 3rd and 4th corners for at least 4 weeks. Also the linebacker position has become a problem. They still might be feeling the impact of the loss to the Cowboys. The Chargers have become a passing team and will look to continue that this week. Things don’t look good for the Eagles this week. Pick: Chargers
Mike: I forget the rule about traveling west. The Chargers were able to overcome the traveling west, just barely, with help of the Giants being terrible. The Eagles are hurting though. The defense is dropping like flies. And where did Andy find this Peters guy? The only time I hear about him is when he gets hurt or has a penalty. I’m not going to get to watch this on but, if things don’t change, I think listening to Andy Reid calling plays while driving is more dangerous than txting. Pick: Chargers
Evan: Eagles

Patriots @ Colts, Sunday 8:20pm
Matt: Brady vs. Manning. Can’t beat it, really. So who’s defense will play better? My gut tells me the Colts, as they play better at home on the fast track. I still don’t think Brady is all the way back yet, and I don’t think the Patriots are as good of a team right now as everyone seems to be making them out to be. Their defense will be exposed by Manning. Pick: Colts
Ahad: The Colts undefeated streak ends here. They should have gone to OT last week, if not lost the game. The injuries on the defense will catch up to them at some point. Pick: Pats
Mike: I feel like we should have just let Matt go on his own this week. The Colts are winning on the Manning comebacks. Close games no matter who the opponent. This is a primetime prove yourself gave for both teams. The Colts are a few steps ahead of the Pats this year, so they need to go out and prove it. Pick: Colts
Evan: Patriots

NFL Week 10 Preview – Thursday

Bears @ 49ers, Thursday 8:20pm
Matt: The 49ers have lost four in a row while the Bears have lost 3 of 4, with that win coming against the Cleveland “Pop Warner” Browns. The Bears have not been very competitive in their last two losses while the 49ers have lost some close, tough games to the Colts and Texans. Looking at the 49ers schedule, it looks like could make a legitimate playoff run, but I don’t see the same for the Bears. Their defense has regressed and they are relying too much on Jay Cutler. Pick: 49ers
Ahad: The Bears are leaking oil pretty bad. Cutler is turning the ball over a lot; Tommie Harris is punching people, what’s next? Their defense isn’t what it used to be. Gore should be able to run against them. Look for the 49ers to take advantage of the Bears problems and come out with a victory. Pick: 49ers
Mike: A few weeks ago this would have been a pretty attractive matchup. Between these two teams, they have won one game since Week 4 and that was just the Bears beating the Browns. The Bears have lost to better opponents the last few weeks: Falcons, Bengals, and Cardinals (on a good week). I’m glad the Bears are struggling but I still think they have more talent here. Cutler just needs to get the ball to Greg Olson, and that has nothing to do with him being the key to my fantasy team. Pick: Bears
Evan’s pick via txt: 49ers

NFL Week 9 Preview

Sports No Comment

Ravens @ Bengals, Sunday 1pm
Mike: After writing off the Bengals they went and blew out the Bears. Cincy also won this first matchup in Baltimore 17-14. The Ravens seem to have gotten things together, not that they were far off. Beating up on the Broncos last week was a good start. Things will change by the end of the year, but right now I’m going to root for the Ravens if there is an all-purple Super Bowl. Pick: Ravens
Ahad: This is not the Ravens team we are used to seeing. This team is no longer carried by the defense. The offense is more than capable of putting a lot of points. They might have to this week. As Mike mentioned, Cincy won the first meeting, so the Ravens will have some extra motivation in this one. Despite the fact that Palmer seems to play his best against the Ravens, I don’t see the Bengals pulling off the sweep. Pick: Ravens
Evan: I like the Ravens here also. Maybe it’s because I’ve just watched a few re-runs of One Tree Hill. I like Lucas and Nathan Scott to score a pair of touchdowns. Skills Taylor could also have a field day picking off Carson Palmer in the secondary. Pick: Ravens
Matt: Wow, no love for the Bengals? They are at home and have already beaten the Ravens once. However, they did beat them on a touchdown in the final minute, which had been the Bengals M.O. until blowing out the Bears two weeks ago. I am expecting another tough, defensive battle, and the team that can run the ball better will win the game. I think Baltimore is one of the better teams in the AFC, and I do think they are better than the Bengals. Pick: Ravens

Cardinals @ Bears, Sunday 1pm
Mike: I don’t even want to pick this game. There is no way of predicting which versions of these teams will show up. I’ve just got to go with the team that appears to have more talent. Pick: Cardinals
Ahad: This game will be decided by quarterback play. Cutler vs Warner, I’m going to take Warner. Cutler turns the ball over too much. Pick: Cards
Evan: I want to be different. Is it cold in Chicago yet? Pick: Bears
Matt: The Cards are on the road where they are 3-0. However, the Bears are 3-0 at home. Something’s got to give. I don’t think the Bears are that great of a team. Ahad, you say Cutler turns the ball over too much. How many turnovers did Warner have last week? 4, 5? I think the Cardinals have the more talented team and it will show here. Pick: Cardinals

Chargers @ Giants, Sunday 4:15pm
Mike: Question of the Day: Are the Giants any good? The Chargers traveling across the country should even things out. Once again, it’s all up to Eli. His picks last week let the Eagles get away comfortably. He always seems to step up before things completely fall apart. Pick: Giants
Ahad: The Giants are riding a three game losing streak and Coughlin says it is going to be up to his leaders to pull the team out of this. The Eagles abused the Giants secondary last week and the Chargers will look to do the same. My only concern is the fact that the Chargers are traveling across the country. I expect a big game out of Rivers. Pick: Chargers
Evan: Giants are spiraling. Chargers should be worried that the G-Men will rally behind their recent suckiness and try to right the ship at home. I agree with Ahad though, that Rivers will tear them up in the air. Pick: Chargers
Matt: Finally, it is Philip versus Eli. This is their first matchup since they were traded for each other in the 2004 draft. I, too, am worried about the Chargers traveling across the country to play this game. That typically does not bode well for them. However, the Giants are reeling, and their defense is not playing well. I expect Rivers to challenge the Giants secondary downfield with Vincent Jackson and Malcolm Floyd. Eli needs to play better than he has of late, or else the Giants have no shot. I like the Chargers by a FG. Pick: Chargers

Cowboys @ Eagles, Sunday 8:20pm
Mike: The Boys have been throwing the ball well. The Eagles have been picking the ball off. I’m still not sold on these safeties and of course the LBs. I’m not sure we’ll hear a ton from Austin but, like every year it seems, Whitten will be a problem. Lucky for the Eagles the offense is clicking. They swatted off the Giants like a minor nuisance. Pick: Eagles
Ahad: The major concern for the Eagles is going to be Jason Whitten. Not since Carlos Emmons has this team had a player capable of shutting down a tight end. Look for the Cowboys to try and run the ball to control the tempo and keep the Eagles offense off the field. After last week, the Eagles offense is riding high and will continue to look for the big play from Jackson. Westbrook returning should provide an additional boost and a security blanket for McNabb. Pick: Eagles
Evan: I am torn, I definitely think the Eagles will win. At the same time, I am convinced of my ability to jinx my teams. I picked the Giants last week for that reason. I’m going to sacrifice my own winning percentage. Pick: Cowboys
Matt: At least give the tight end his due…his name is Witten, not Whitten. I am expecting a game similar to their first matchup last year. High-scoring, in the 30’s. I am also expecting the Cowboys to try to establish the run game early to keep the Eagles O off the field. On defense, the Cowboys will have to keep everything in front of them as the Eagles have mainly produced on offense via the big play. If they can get good pressure on McNabb, I like their chances of pulling the game out. However, and Evan, I can play this game too, I don’t want to jinx my team (I did the same thing for the Falcons game). Pick: Eagles

Steelers @ Broncos, Monday 8:30pm
Mike: Finally that Broncos loss. Now they can continue to fall back to where they belong. The Steelers are rolling and coming off a bye. I don’t know if the Steelers needed the bye, but to me they always seem like they are hurting. Pick: Steelers
Ahad: The Steelers want to show everyone they are still one of the top teams in the league. Expect them to come out and play a very physical game. I will say it again; the Broncos are not as good as their record. Expect another loss. Pick: Steelers
Evan:The Broncos show is over. Pick: Steelers
Matt: This will be a good defensive battle. Pittsburgh is 1-2 on the road, with that win an 8 point affair with the Lions. How will the altitude affect the Steelers? It always seems to affect the opposing team. That is why Denver has always been so tough at home. Denver’s D outplays the Steelers D, barely. Pick: Broncos

No love this week for a few teams. No picks for Seattle, San Fran, Oakland, Carolina, or Atlanta. In my ICH group, I put my wager points on Dallas over Seattle, yet I still feel like I’ll get burned, but less than the others. The Raiders shutting down the Eagles a few weeks ago has me avoiding them and the other teams all seem like they could put something together.
