Happy Thanksgiving, y'all. The things I'm thankful for today include the amazing Chef Spouse, my new business, and the fact that the Eagles aren't playing today and thus won't ruin what should be a lovely holiday.
What with the feast preparations, getting my picks in got a little delayed. So I'll be brief:
Panthers at Eagles for MNF: Panthers. I think it's entirely possible, maybe even likely, the Eagles don't win another game this season.
Texans at Lions: The Lions are under performing this year, and this matchup should be close. But I don't think it's going to be. Texans.
Redskins at Cowboys: I'll be rooting for the Skins, but I don't think their D is strong enough to get them the win. Cowboys.
Patriots at Jets: Pats
Vikings at Bears: With Jay Cutler? Bears, for sure. Without? I've got the Vikes in a squeaker.
Raiders at Bengals: Bengals, thanks to homefield.
Steelers at Browns: Charlie Batch is likely going to be under center, y'all. He's been good for the Steelers in the past, but I'm going with the Browns as my upset pick.
Bills at Colts: Colts
Titans at Jaguars: Are these two teams still playing? I probably shouldn't judge. The Titans have a better record than the Eagles. And they're going to win.
Broncos at Chiefs: Broncos.
Seahawks at Dolphins: Seahawks will take this one on the strength of their D.
Falcons at Buccaneers: I still think the Falcons will win this one, but I don't think it's going to be nearly as sure a thing as we all would've predicted a few weeks ago.
Ravens at Chargers: I've got the Chargers because East Coast teams tend to have a hard time going west and because I think they're desperate not to fall farther behind the Broncos.
Rams at Cardinals: Rams. The Cards D has fallen off their early season pace and their O hasn't taken up the slack.
49ers at Saints: If Kaepernick stays under center for the Niners, this could be a very high scoring affair. The Saints are surging and they're hard to beat at home, but I've got the 49ers.
Packers at Giants: I think this will also be a close one, but again, gotta go with homefield and the G-men.
