"The Expert" Picks week 13

Last Week--11-5
Season--120-57 (Not including correct pick of the Grey Cup Game)

Thoughts of the past week...
>Giants look to be in total freefall
>Steelers injuries may cause them to not make the playoffs..
>Patriots have playoffs pretty muck locked up but they are very much up & down on offense and defense is just not the same
>Titans are on an amazing run, Colts struggle every week but wins every week, Something has got to give.
>Dolphins turned back to the Mahi Mahi's last week vs Bills
>Jets kept slim playoff hopes alive with a stellar defensive effort

>Other Sports notes, Derek Jeter becomes first yankee ever to become Sports Illustrated's
(Sportsman Of the Year)
>Tiger Woods shows he is human.
>The Grey Cup was a spectacular game, The Game appeared to be over when Damon Duval missed a Field Goal to win at the buzzer, But the Saskatchewan Roughriders were called for too many men (13) on the field, so Duval made it on his 2nd attempt to give Montreal a 28-27 win, What is not reported was that Montreal scored what use to be known as a Rouge now called a single for a kick into the end zone that gave Montreal a single point, The difference in the game was 1 point.

Now the Picks

Thursday Night

Jets--13 @ Bills--10 (Ugly Game that the Paper-Airplanes should win but this is also the type of game they lose most of the time, So I am going with my Heart here)


Rams--16 @ Bears 17 (Someone has to win in a match up of a terrible team vs a underachiever)

Bucs--17 @ Panthers--13 (Yucs beat a Panther team that seems to be giving up on its coach and itself)

Texans--10 @ Jags--17 (Jags usually lose a game like this but the Texans seem primed to fall back to a lower level of teams leading to a coaching change and a rebuilding of this team, meanwhile Jones-Drew should have a huge game)

Broncos--17 @ Chiefs--23 (No way the Chiefs should win but the Broncos have almost always lost in KC in December games)

Titans--20 @ Colts 35 (Colts seem to be poised to lose and Titans seem to be on a roll, But The Streak of the Titans ends as the Colts prove that they are an elite team in the AFC)

Eagles--20 @ Falcons--10 (Ryan is out Sunday and Michael Turner is hurting. Eagles make their Playoff pitch)

Saints--31 @ Redskins--20 (Redskins hang tough till the 4th Qtr, but Saints pull out another one)

Raiders--10 @ Steelers--35 (Steelers take out weeks of aggravation on the Raiders)

Lions--13 @ Bengals--31 (Bengals will not choke away this easy win)

Patriots--35 @ Dolphins--16 (Patriots regain some of its swagger at least for one week and Mahi Mahi's will return to the glory days of December Collapses)

Chargers--38 @ Browns--3 (Browns continue to embarrass the city of Cleveland as Chargers continue to soar in December before their Choke job that will come in January)

Cowboys--23 @ Giants--16 (Cowboys will have to wait a week to start their annual December-January Choke as the Giants downward spiral continues)

49rs--20 @ Seahawks--23 (49rs continue their road woes)

Vikings--27 @ Cardinals--10 (Viking defense smothers the Hurting cards offense while Favre continues to advance his career passing yardage (Pro including NFL-AFL-CFL) to the all time record of owned by Damon Allen (Marcus Allens Brother) 0f 72381, Favre as of today has 68,001 which is 3rd all time, Warren Moon has 70,553 and sits 2nd

Monday Night

Ravens--13 @ Packers--23 (Ravens just do not score enough and the Offense is struggling after a Huge start)

Jets keep it alive for another week

Cutler cannot win games.Say what you will re Orton,he gets it done

Fox as the Giants DC? Coach in waiting?

I've little faith in the Jags,despite the 6-5 record they have a -40 point differential

No way-Denver wins

Titans pull the upset off.They can run the table after that,getting them to 10-6.That we are even having this conversation is amazing.Fisher is one of the best and Young is on a roll.Do not forget Johnson

Cowher or Billick in DC?

Without Big Ben,it won't be that simple

Agreed-the Bengals are ready to roll

Pats get it done

Chargers are peaking.I'd hate to play them in the playoffs

Giants win as they always play the Boys well

Holmgren in SF next year?

Vikes are due for a stinker.Here it is

I like the Ravens here
