NFL: Week 14 Pick Results

Winning teams in bold.

Unanimous Picks (10-3)


Falcons @ Panthers
Eagles @ Cowboys
Patriots @ Bears
Buccaneers @ Redskins
Ravens @ Texans
Giants @ Vikings
Bengals @ Steelers
Rams @ Saints
Seahawks @ 49ers
Chiefs @ Chargers


Packers @ Lions
I think the Packers have been exposed—if you can take away their deep passing game, and run the ball to keep their offense off the field—they become very beatable. It can be a tough thing to do, though. This is the first time since 1979 the Packers have held their opponent to just 7 points and still lost.
Broncos @ Cardinals
This was just an offensive melt-down for the Broncos. They turned the ball over 6 times (3 interceptions and 3 lost fumbles). They also punted 5 times, missed a field goal, and gave the ball over on downs. After their opening drive of the game, they didn't have another drive longer than 28 yards until garbage time.
Dolphins @ Jets
It seems like very little is working for the Jets offense right now. Mark Sanchez is completing less than half his passes (some of them because his receivers are dropping them), and the running game is drying up, producing just 87 yards in Sunday's game. The Jets may not get even one more win this season with play like that.

Split (APR: 1-1 SRS: 1-1 Line: 2-0)

Browns (APR, SRS) @ Bills (Line)
I said it before, and I'll say it again: Jake Delhomme (12/20, 86 yards, an interception and a lost fumble) is not the answer for the Browns (or anyone else) at quarterback.
Raiders (SRS) @ Jaguars (APR, Line)
The Jaguars have given up at least 26 points in 7 games this season, and somehow they are still 8-5. Part of the reason is their offense (159 yards passing, 242 yards rushing) has been better than their defense has been bad.
Colts (APR, Line) @ Titans (SRS)
What a difference from last two games for the Titans. Does Kenny Britt really mean that much to their offense? A fumble and a bad snap on a punt helped the Colts jump out to a 21-0 lead. If the Titans had executed a little better (or even if Jeff Fisher had managed the clock better at the end of the game), this could have easily come out differently.
