Pigskin Predictions

An 8-7 week puts me at 116-69 for the year. Week 14 has a lot of interesting games.

New England travels to Washington for a 1 p.m. game. I expect this to start off close, but the Patriots pull away in the second half.

New England 36, Washington 17

The New York Jets are at home against Kansas City at 1 p.m. The Chiefs are getting better each week. I think the Jets pull this out in the last minute.

New York 24, Kansas City 23

The New York Giants take on Dallas away Sunday night. This is a great game. I never get the Giants right. I’m taking them this week so watch out!

New York 28, Dallas 24

Other Picks

Atlanta 23, Carolina 20 – The Falcons are up and down. They are the better team.

Tampa Bay 17, Jacksonville 13 – Tampa Bay should pull this out.

Houston 34, Cincinnati 24 – This could be a really good game. I like Houston a bit more.

Detroit 33, Minnesota 24 – Detroit will score a lot in this game.

New Orleans 34, Tennessee 30 – New Orleans is only 50 percent away from home, but squeaks it out.

Baltimore 36, Indianapolis 20 – Unless something major happens, the Ravens should win easily.

Miami 24, Philadelphia 20 – The Eagles are just not the team everyone expected.

Denver 24, Chicago 21 – I like Denver at home and Tebow wins.

San Francisco 20, Arizona 13 – Arizona is playing tough, but the 49ers defense is strong.

San Diego 27, Buffalo 20 – I just can’t take the Bills.

Green Bay 35, Oakland 24 – The Packers remain undefeated.

Seattle 35, St Louis 21 – Seattle is at home and is the better team.

Next Thursday

Atlanta 34, Jacksonville 17 – Atlanta is at home. A blow-out is inevitable.
