After doing miserably in my predictions for week 11 I rebounded nicely by going 11-4 in my week 12 picks. For the season my record is 113-63 which is a 64.2% win rate.
This week there is a full slate of games including three games on Thanksgiving.
Week 13 NFL predictions:
Chicago at Detroit- Lions
Detroit went on the road and lost badly the the Patriots. This week they take on the Bears but Chicago struggled to move the ball against the Bucs, now they face the Lions top rated defense.
Philadelphia at Dallas- Cowboys
This one could be a barn burner but the Cowboys have shown balance in the running and passing game all year long. The Eagles have not been consistent on the ground at all this year which will force Sanchez to throw more and that favors the Cowboys.
Seattle at San Francisco- Niners
These two teams do not like each other and last year the home team won each time, nothing changes this year.
Washington at Indianapolis- Colts
It looks like the Skins have benched RG III, it doesn’t matter the result will be the same, Colts win in a blowout.
Tennessee at Houston- Texans
Texans QB Mallet is out for the season but it does not matter, the Texans still win this game at home.
Cleveland at Buffalo- Bills
Cleveland is inconsistent and the return Gordon makes them dangerous however the Bills have a shut down defense at times and they will come to play this week.
San Diego at Baltimore- Chargers
Chargers are struggling and it looks like the Ravens are peaking. Despite that I feel the Chargers will find a way to win this game by focusing on stopping the running game of the Ravens.
NY Giants at Jacksonville- Giants
Someone has to win this game and the Giants played pretty well in a loss to the Cowboys last week.
Cincinnati at Tampa Bay- Bengals
The worst defense in the league will not be able to stop the inconsistent Bengals offense at home.
Oakland at St. Louis- Rams
The Rams have played much better and have a tough defense, the Raiders got their 1st win last week but they come back down to earth this week.
New Orleans at Pittsburgh- Steelers
The Saints cannot stop anyone on defense and the Steelers are a top 10 offense in the league.
Carolina at Minnesota- Vikings
The entire NFC south is just bad, the Vikings are not world beaters either but they find a way to pull this out at home.
Arizona at Atlanta- Cardinals
Cardinals play good defense Atlanta does not and they somehow find a way to lose close games.
New England at Green Bay- Packers
The game of the week with two of the best quarterbacks in the league. Green Bay uses the home field to bring down the streaking Patriots.
Denver at Kansas City- Broncos
Did the Broncos get their mojo back? I think so and they win a close game on the road against the Chiefs.
Miami at NY Jets- Dolphins
The Dolphins have to win to keep their playoff hopes alive and the Jets are playing very poorly, the Dolphins defense rebounds this week after struggling last week against the Broncos.
