Not So Expert Picks: Week Twelve Edition
Hey sports fans, T-Bone, Bruce and Chris here with our picks for the NFL slate this weekend. We’re going to keep track of these for bragging rights, so we’ll keep you updated each week with who’s in the lead and who doesn’t know as much as they think they may.
After fully indulging ourselves for Thanksgiving we are back to give you our picks. Chris won the week last week at 10-4, followed by T-Bone at 9-5, and Bruce at 7-7. Chris still has the lead for the season at 101-58-1, T-Bone is in second at 100-59-1, and Bruce follows up at 91-68-1. T-Bone apparently ate too much turkey and is still in a tryptophan coma because he forget to send his picks in, so instead of giving him a zero Chris woke his girlfriend Becca up way too early and got the picks from her.
Thanksgiving Day Games
I’m just going to sum up these games in a few quick comments. The Lions Texans game introduced us to a rule nobody knew existed, the Cowboys are in disarray, RGIII is the real deal, and the Patriots are good and the Jets should not go out in public. Chris and Bruce went 3-0, Becca went 2-1.
Vikings @ Bears: After getting smacked in the mouth last Monday the Bears will get Jay Cutler back. The Vikings have a pretty good pass rush but not like the 49ers, Chris and Bruce like the Bears to rebound, Becca is taking the Vikings.
Raiders @ Bengals: Carson Palmer makes his return to Cincy this week and apparently no one in Ohio cares since the game is blacked out. Speaking of black out, Chris and Becca are taking the Raiders and Bruce likes the Bengals.
Steelers @ Browns: The Steelers are all kinds of banged up but the Browns are just bad so who really knows what to expect out of this one. Bruce and Chris like the Browns to take advantage of the injury ridden Steelers, Becca says the Steelers still take care of business here.
Bills @ Colts: This one could have some major points put up as neither one of these teams play a whole lot of defense, all three of us like the Colts to outlast the Bills here.
Broncos @ Chiefs: Not a whole lot to say about this one, the Chiefs suck and the Broncos are far from that, we all like the Broncos.
Seahawks @ Dolphins: The Seahawks have been amazing at home and questionable on the road but with a week to prepare for the Dolphins I think they should be fine in their trip to the east coast, Chris and Becca like the Seahawks, Bruce is taking the home team Dolphins.
Falcons @ Buccaneers: Everything seems to be going the Bucs way as of late and could make a huge step towards the playoffs with a win this week but the Falcons aren’t just going to lay down for them. Bruce and Becca like the Flacons, Chris is taking the Bucs.
Titans @ Jaguars: The Jaguars are staring a number one pick in the face so why would they mess that up here? Becca and Chris like the Titans; Bruce is trying to make up ground and picking the Jaguars.
Ravens @ Chargers: Week after week I wonder how Norv Turner still has a job the Ravens should make easy work of San Diego according to Chris and Bruce. Becca likes the upset and is taking the Chargers.
49ers @ Saints: After the display the Niners put on last week it would be hard to pick against them which is why Bruce is taking the road team here. However, the Saints backs are against the wall and Chris and Becca like them in a must win here.
Rams @ Cardinals: The Rams have been playing better as of late but they have still not been able to get over the hump and grab a win on the road, Chris and Bruce think they get the monkey off their back this week. Becca likes the Cardinals to turn things around here.
Sunday Night Game
Packers @ Giants: This has all the makings to be the game of the week in a repeat of the playoffs from last year. Becca thinks the Packers right the ship from last year and take down the Giants. Bruce and Chris think a week off will give Eli some much needed rest and the Giants should make a run here.
Monday Night Game
Panthers @ Eagles: This one was one everybody was circling on their calendars in the preseason but now it is being donned the battle of the bads and that is exactly what it is. Chris and Becca think the Panthers aren’t quite as bad, Bruce thinks they in fact are and he is taking the Eagles.
