Season Record W-L-T Steve: 22-22-0 Brandon: 24-20-0
$$$$ Cowboys -3.5 over the Giants… QB Tony Romo and the Cowboys seem to be back on track after a slow start. Look for them to handle the Giants with ease in this important divisional battle
$$$ Saints -3.5 over Baltimore… The Saints are fighting for their playoff lives and are coming off a two game losing streak. Look for Drew Brees and company to right the ship at home against the Ravens.
$$ Bears -5.5 over Tampa Bay… The Bears and Jay Cuttler bounced back in the win column last week,expect more of the same against a weak Buccaneers team.
$ Washington +9 over the 49ers … This one could be tricky but I just can’t see the 49ers beating anyone by double digits. Look for Washington to keep it close.
Brandon’s picks of the week…
$$$$ 49ers -9 over the Redskins… I am willing to give the Redskins 20 with the confidence of winning. The 49ers do not possess much fire power on the offensive side of the ball but the Redskins appear to be a complete mess.
$$$ Broncos -7 over the Dolphins… Although struggling as of late and the Dolphins have been red hot, the Broncos will come back strong after failing miserably to put together a good game last week against the Rams. The defense must show up.
$$ Ravens +3.5 over the Saints… I believe the Ravens win this game just to stay alive in the AFC North. A loss here could put the Ravens in a tough spot, however, the same can be said about their opponents.
$ Bears -5.5 over the Buccaneers… The Bears need to do anything they can to come out on top this week in a tough NFC North where they rank third. During this stretch of the regular season, it is about staying alive and catching fire. A win here would give them two wins in a row.
