Game Predictions

Prediction Last Week 8-8, vs. line 9-7, Overall 148-92 (62%), vs. line 116-124 (48 %)
NYG 20, WAS 17 (Line: NYG by 2.5) Coin toss game because the Giants are sputtering beyond all reason but the Skins have nothing here to win.
ATL 10, PHI 27 (Line: PHI by 6.5) The Falcons have lost 6 of their last 8 games and the Eagles are peaking and need this to secure the NFC East. But hey - Vick got the rushing record, isn't that enough?
BUF 7, BAL 24 (Line: BAL by 9) No reason for the Ravens to get complacent here - a win means a bye and homefield in week two. The Bills have nothing to win here.
CAR 13, NO 20 (Line: NO by 3) The Saints have nothing to win here but the Panthers have little to win with. This whole "top team" phenomena is too new for the Saints to realize they are supposed to tank in this game.
CLE 13. HOU 20 (Line: HOU by 4) Final game against two cellar dwellers. Texans beat the Colts at home and the Browns on the road can only make it look interesting.
DET 10, DAL 27 (Line: DAL by 13) The Cowboys may choke in big games but the Lions are visiting and the Boys need something to feel good about.
JAX 10, KC 17 (Line: KC by 2) The Chiefs are tough at home and the Jags often stumble on the road. The only certainty here is that this will not be high scoring and that each team will try to run the ball.
MIA 13, IND 23 (Line: IND by 7) The Colts have their problems but they are 7-0 at home and facing a team deciding between Joey Harrington and Cleo Lemon.
NE 17, TEN 20 (Line: TEN by 2.5) The Pats have nothing to win here and the Titans evidently cannot be beaten. While it will likely be a Titans win, there is almost no way of telling exactly how.
OAK 10, NYJ 24 (Line: NYJ by 11) All the Jets need is a win for a wildcard and here come the Raiders. It's like Christmas never ends.
PIT 16, CIN 27 (Line: CIN by 6) Nothing like missing an extra point to make a team play mad the next week. The Bengals already won in Pittsburgh this year and this is likely the final game for both teams.
SEA 24, TB 17 (Line: SEA by 3) Seattle needs a win here because they just need a win - any win. The Bucs are just now realizing that Rattay was the answer to a question they did not dare to ask until week 15.
STL 20, MIN 17 (Line: STL by 1.5) This is like Chester Taylor vs. the world. Bulger is hot and the Vikes secondary is not.
ARZ 13, SD 24 (Line: SD by 14 ) The Chargers need this game to ensure the #1 seed unless the Ravens drop their game against the Bills. But there is no need to do more then needed here and Tomlinson has already set the record.
SF 6, DEN 24 (Line: DEN by 10.5) The Broncos need to win for a wildcard and the 49ers pathetic passing game just lost Antonio Bryant. On the road the 49ers are bad and in Denver - even worse.
GB 10, CHI 17 (Line: CHI by 2.5) The Bears have nothing to win here but it is a national game and the finale for the regular season. Add in the Packers have little punch and the Bears should notch the win before their vacation.
