Season Record W-L-T Steve: 27-25-0 Brandon: 27-25-0
$$$$ Steelers+3 over Bengals… The Steelers need a big win and QB Ben Roethlisberger has had some of his best performances in Ohio, his home state. I’m banking on Pittsburgh to show up this week and the fact that Dalton vs. Roethlisberger weighs heavily in the Steelers favor.
$$$ Colts -4 over Browns… Andrew Luck and the Colts are red hot and the Browns are in the middle of a major quarterback controversy and may be falling apart. I’ll take the Colts.
$$ Eagles -1.5 over Seattle…This is a battle of the birds and I feel the difference here will be the Eagles home field advantage. The Seahawks are tough but can be beat on the road., look for the weather to play a part in this one also.
$ Bears +3.5 over the Cowboys… The home team has had the advantage in these Thursday night games. I look for the Bears to keep this one close.
Brandon’s picks of the week…
$$$$ Chiefs +1 over the Cardinals… Since quarterback Carson Palmer suffered his season ending injury, the Cardinals have slowly started to snowball down hill. This week, the Cardinals will host a tough opponent in the Chiefs and expect them to give them too much that they can handle. Chiefs will win.
$$$ Seahawks +1.5 over the Eagles… Going against the Eagles has put quite a few losses in my loss column. However I think the defending Super Bowl champs have to win this one to show they are capable of making another run.
$$ Steelers +3 over the Bengals… It is easy to see the Steelers are struggling. They have players that need to step up right now. Starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers have a very good record playing in the state of Ohio and I don’t expect that to change. The Steelers have a must win.
$ Colts -4 over the Browns… The Colts have showed all season they are one of the best teams in the AFC and the playoff picture for the conference is really heating up. Expect the Colts to march onto the field and take command of a Browns team that is slowly losing faith in starting quarterback Brian Hoyer.
