FALCONS over cards
|Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez|
Atlanta’s gonna rock Arizona today. The Falcons return to their beloved Georgia Dome nest after falling for its first time this season last week at New Orleans. The Cardinals, meanwhile, have lost five in a row and an offense that resembles the strength of a cardboard box. Atlanta wins handily.
PREDICTION: FALCONS 31, cards 10
pack over LIONS
Much like the Cowboys, the Lions will need a home win today any shot at the playoffs. And, they certainly have the offense to do so. Detroit QB Matthew Stafford throws for 300 yards and 3 TDs today, connect with Calvin Johnson for two of those scores. But Packers’ Aaron Rodgers is just a little more hot than Stafford, other any other quarterback in the league right now, and Discount Double-Check gives Green Bay the edge in a highly entertaining shootout.
PREDICTION: CHIEFS 20, bengals 16
PREDICTION: eagles 27, SKINS 20
bucs over PANTHERS
PREDICTION: bucs, 27, PANTHERS 20
TEXANS over jags
This game – between an 8-1 home team and a 1-8 visitor – is definitely a poor matchup on paper. It’s also a poor matchup on the field. The Texans stomp the Jags in south Texas today.
PREDICTION: TEXANS 37, jags 6
PREDICTION: saints 34, RAIDERS 24
PREDICTION: BRONCOS 27, chargers 24 (in OT)
PATS over colts
An intriguing matchup takes place in New England this afternoon, where the 6-3 Colts take on the 6-3 Patriots. For a team that was 2-14 a year ago, Indy has been quite an endearing success story this season. In an exciting game between a highly-acclaimed veteran quarterback and a super sensational rookie quarterback, Tom Brady and his team’s home-field advantage sway the decision over Andrew Luck and the Colts in the end.
PREDICTION: PATS 34, colts 31
NINERS over bears
|49ers QB Colin Kaepernick|
PREDICTION: NINERS 20, bears 17
