Picking Winners for Week 14 in the NFL

New England Patriots at Pittsburgh Steelers Pittsburgh, but they lost.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Cleveland Browns Cleveland. Trevor Lawrence is a game time decision to play. Even if he plays, the Browns defense plays lights out at home. They allow an average of 10 points per game, and that's to mostly healthy quarterbacks. You don't want to be limping around trying to beat the Browns in Cleveland.

Indianapolis Colts at Cincinnati Bengals Cincinnati. If the Bengals can beat the Jaguars in Jacksonville with back up quarterback Jake Browning, then they are good enough to win at home against the Colts.

Houston Texans at New York Jets Houston. The Jets will start Zach Wilson, so at least they have a chance this week, but it's not a very good chance with the way the Texans are playing.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Atlanta Falcons Atlanta. I have a hard time picking the Falcons games. I might miss again, but if they play like they are capable, they can beat the Buccaneers.

Los Angeles Rams at Baltimore Ravens Baltimore. The Ravens generally destroy NFC teams. I don't think they will destroy the Rams, but I do think they will win.

Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears Detroit. The Lions better wake up soon or all their hard work to get near the top of the NFC will be wasted. A lot of people are taking the Bears, but the Lions are just a better football team.

Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints New Orleans. Since Derek Carr has cleared concussion protocol and seems to be on track to start, I'll take the Saints to squeeze by.

Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers San Francisco. I'm not sure I would take any team in any location over the 49ers right now.

Minnesota Vikings at Las Vegas Raiders Minnesota. The Raiders are playing better with their new head coach, and I consider this almost a toss-up game, but the Vikings know how to blitz very well, so I think that might rattle the Raiders young quarterback.

Buffalo Bills at Kansas City Chiefs Kansas City. I'm not at all confident about this pick. The Chiefs offense is hit or miss right now. The Bills are desperate and will give it all they've got, but it's extremely rare for Patrick Mahomes to lose two games in a row. He will play with purpose.

Denver Broncos at Los Angeles Chargers Los Angeles Chargers. The Broncos had won five games in a row until their loss at Houston last week. The game showed that Russell Wilson still has a hard time finishing drives, and the Broncos didn't get their accustomed turnovers. Normally, the Chargers don't turn the ball over much.

Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys Dallas. Dallas has won 14 straight games at home. The Eagles are mostly winning but winning ugly. If the Cowboys are ever going to amount to anything, they have to win this game. I think they will get it done, but it wouldn't shock me if Jalen Hurts figures out a way to win it.

Tennessee Titans at Miami Dolphins Miami. The only reason this game might not be over by halftime is because Mike Vrabel is an excellent head coach and usually finds a way to keep his team in almost any game.

Green Bay Packers at New York Giants Green Bay. I've made fun of Giants quarterback Tommy DeVito by calling him Danny DeVito for the last two weeks. It's not funny anymore because DeVito is actually playing good football. He's playing well enough to keep this game close, but I think the Packers are on a roll and will figure out how to win a close game.

May God always be your number 1 draft pick!

Picking Super Bowl 58 Winner

If you had told me at the start of this season that the 49ers and Chiefs would be in the Super Bowl, I'd have said that makes a lot of sense. The 49ers are always good. I felt like they were either th
