Season Record W-L-T Steve: 31-29-0 Brandon: 32-28-0
$$$$ Steelers -3 over the Kansas City… The Steelers are still in control of their own fate. Win and they are in the 2014 NFL playoffs. Look for offensive coordinator Todd Haley to get revenge on the team that gave him his walking papers. The Steelers should be strong this week at home.
$$$ Jaguars -3 over the Titans… Another battle of the bad and I don’t think you get much worse than the Titans. Jaguars running game should be the difference.
$$ Packers -10.5 over Tampa Bay… It’s the battle of the Bays and I’ll take Green Bay and Arron Rodgers . The Packers lost last week and should bounce strong against a suspect Tampa team. Look for the Packers To win big
$ 49ers -2.5 over the Chargers… The Chargers are on somewhat of a losing streak and the 49ers are looking to finish strong at home. I’ll take the 49ers against a beat up Chargers team.
$$$$ Steelers -3 over the Chiefs… It does not get much bigger than this in the regular season for the Steelers or the Chiefs. Both teams are fighting for their playoff lives. However, I believe the Steelers offense will be too much to handle for the Chiefs with the home crowd behind the black and gold. Steelers clinch a spot today!
$$$ Cowboys -3 over the Colts… With the Eagles losing last night, this is a game the Cowboys must win to be champions of the NFC East. However, this is a game that in the past, the Cowboys choke in. With a lot of injuries on the team, I still have a gut feeling the Cowboys will pull this one off over a hot Andrew Luck.
$$ Bills -6 over the Raiders… After defeating the Packers at their best, the Bills should pull this one off with ease even if it is on the road in the black hole. The Raiders have more problems than the eye can see and the Bills are trying to stay alive in the AFC playoff hunt. A big in is a must.
$ Panthers -4 over the Browns… Well after week one of Manzeil Mania, I was not impressed. Now with Cam Newton returning to the field, Browns cornerback Joe Haden will be out with a shoulder injury. I think the Panthers will get this one done as Manziel struggles again.
