Season Record W-L-T Steve 33-34-4 Brandon 32-36-3
Steve’s picks of the week…
Chiefs pk over the Colts… The Chiefs and running back Jamaal Charles will be too much for the Colts and their suspect run defense.
Saints +2.5 over the Eagles… Although the weather may be a factor look for Brees and the Saints to overpower the up and down Eagles who are just 4-4 at home this season.
Bengals -6.5 over the Chargers… Bengals are undefeated at home and I look for them to stay that way against a very inconsistent Charger team in the cold weather.
Packers +2.5 over the 49ers… This one is a close call but I’ll take Aaron Rodgers and Eddie Lacy on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field over Colin Kaepernick and Frank Gore.
Brandon’s picks of the week…
Chiefs pk over the Colts… Jamaal Charles will be too much to handle for head coach Chuck Pagano and the Colts.
Eagles -2.5 over the Saints… The Eagles offense is something special. Even though the Saints are strong defensively, the are not as versatile.
Bengals -6.5 over the Chargers… Although they do not play well against division opponents, the Bengals are much too talented for a Chargers team that faced all backups last week and barely pulled off the win.
49ers -2.5 over the Packers… Green Bay is riding on a crazy end to the regular season that gave them a playoff spot, but Jim Harbaugh will win the coaching battle here.
