We are heading DOWN the STRETCH in the NFL season, as there are only FIVE weeks left in the season. Contending teams are making their PUSH for the Playoffs, while the rebuilding teams are getting TANKING to get a HIGH draft pick. I am picking SIX games this week and after a OK week last week, I am now TWENTY games over .500. You can find the WHOLE NFL Playoff picture right here, but I have the recap of my picks down below.

Game 7- My Pick- Texans outright, Actual- Ravens won but did not cover
Record for Week 12- 4-3, Overall Record after 12 Weeks- 47-27
The games for this week are the Redskins at the Cowboys, the Pats at the Bills, the Chiefs at the Jets, the Panthers at the Saints, the Eagles at the Seahawks, and the Steelers at the Bengals
Game 1- Thursday Night, the Redskins at the Cowboys (Line- Redskins -1.5)
The Cowboys really MISS Ezekiel Elliot and their offense has looked LOST since his suspension. The Redskins have been RAVAGED with injuries, but are still just ONE game under .500. Neither team is going to make the playoffs, but the Redskins have more MOTIVATION to win than the Cowboys, who it seems like have just QUIT on the season. I am going to ROLL with the Redskins and the points in this game, mainly because I do not think the Cowboys CARE about this season anymore.
Game 2- Sunday Afternoon, the Pats at the Bills (Line- Pats -8.5)
The Bills had a great start to the season, but have come BACK down to EARTH. The Pats are ROLLING right now and they are EASILY going to win this game by more than NINE points and jump on the graves of the Bills’ Mafia.
Game 3- Sunday Afternoon, the Chiefs at the Jets (Line- Chiefs -2.5)
The Chiefs are awfully being considered as TRASH, after losing FIVE of their SIX games. They come into New Jersey against a Jets team that does not really have anything to play for. The Jets would LOVE to play spoilers and ruin the Chiefs’ playoffs chances. I am going to take the Jets in this game, because the Chiefs are free falling right now and I do not think their issues are going to be SOLVED at Metlife Stadium this Sunday.
Game 4- Sunday Late Afternoon, the Panthers at the Saints (Line- Saints -4.5)
The Saints lost a tough game to the Rams last week on the ROAD, while the Panthers POUNDED on the lowly Jets. This week these two teams face each other for SUPREMACY in the division. The Saints have already beaten the Panthers ONCE this season and get some distance between them and the Panthers. I am going to take the Saints AND the points in this game, because they are at HOME and the crowd will be able to DISRUPT Cam Newton.
Game 5- Sunday Night, the Eagles at the Seahawks (Line- Eagles -5.5)
This pick is going to be a little HYPOCRITICAL on my part because I have been calling the Seahawks TRASH for quite some time now, but I am going to pick them in this game. I do think that the Eagles WILL win the game, but the Seahawks will use the HOME crowd to keep it close and the Eagles will win by a FIELD GOAL.
Game 6- Monday Night, the Steelers at the Bengals (Line- Steelers -5.5)
No point in analyzing this game. The Steelers are going to ROLL. That is what I said last week, but the Steelers did not even come close to covering the spread.
My picks for this week are the Redskins, the Pats, the Jets, the Saints, the Seahawks, the Steelers. Check back next week to see how I do.
