PICK’EM & SURVIVOR: Week 15

Helmet_St._Louis_Rams_1

The Rams, and specifically Jared Goff, play much better on offense when they are home, which is welcome after a forgettable Sunday night. Carson Wentz is expected to miss this contest and the Philadelphia secondary is already riddled with injuries.

Helmet_San_Diego_Chargers_1

The Chargers play very well in Los Angeles as they’ve won eight out of their last ten games at home. On the other hand, the Bengals do not travel well against teams with winning records. It looks like the Bengals will be without A.J. Green as well.

The Packers haven’t been a great pick at any point this year and this is certainly the last opportunity. Aaron Rodgers may not look like himself but losing to this Cardinals team at Lambeau would an ultimate low.

Helmet_Carolina_Panthers_1

The Panthers have had 10 days to recover from the pummeling in Pittsburgh last Thursday. While it certainly was a night to forget, the Panthers have shown that they can bounce back the following week after losses like this. They travel to Detroit to catch a reeling Lions team that has dropped three straight.

Pick’Em & Survivor: Week 10

Helmet_Green_Bay_Packers_1

The Miami defense is bad, which is partly due to all its injuries. It is true that Miami held the New York Jets to six points last week, but we all know that traveling to Green Bay and facing Aaron Rodgers is quite a different story.

PICK’EM & SURVIVOR: Week 9

Helmet_Chicago_Bears_1

It is Nathan Peterman time again. He will be leading a Buffalo offense that is averaging less than 11 points per game. Can Chicago score 20 points? Why yes, yes they can. Making them the top Survivor selection of the week.

PICK’EM & SURVIVOR: Week 8

Helmet_New_England_Patriots_1

With Sony Michel being injured, the Patriots will have a tougher time controlling the clock and the game, even if they do get out to a huge lead. I rarely choose a survivor pick while also going with the underdog to cover the spread, but 15 points is a wide cushion.

Helmet_Cincinnati_Bengals_1

The Bengals are shaping up to be one of the best teams in the AFC, but their schedule isn’t that easy. This is one of the last times you can reliably take the Bengals besides their week 8 matchup against the Buccaneers.

Helmet_Kansas_City_Chiefs_1

All statistics in this matchup favor the Chiefs. Andy Reid is 16-2 in his career following a bye week, the Chiefs are 9-2 against the spread in their last 11 road games and the Giants have only won two of their last 14 games as home underdogs.

PICK’EM & SURVIVOR: Week 10

Helmet_St._Louis_Rams_1

The Rams are taking care of business on both sides of the ball and Jared Goff is coming off the most impressive game of his career. Losing Deshaun Watson has had the effect we all expected on the Texans offense. In his two games this year, Tom Savage is completing only 45% of his passes.

Jacksonville_Jaguars_Helmet_1

Jacksonville is in the interesting spot of having the league’s best pass defense and worst run defense. Once Jacksonville gains a lead the run defense doesn’t matter, as it can control the clock with Leonard Fournette and shut down any comeback attempts.

Helmet_Atlanta_Falcons_1

No team is looking to put 2016 in the rear view more than the Falcons. They are lucky enough to open 2017 against the ragtag bunch of misfits in Chicago. With only one real offensive threat in Jordan Howard, it will truly be miraculous if the Bears can keep pace with the Falcons offense.
