Survivor Pools – Week 14

Thursday Night

 

Steelers
@ Browns – If you waited twelve weeks and still had the Steelers in a home game
against the Raiders in Week 13, you got robbed.

Oakland
came across the country and beat

Pittsburgh
in a wild finish, knocking out plenty of survivor pool participants. If you
have

Pittsburgh
this week, you should still use them since you won’t be able to the rest of the
way. The Browns are worse than

Oakland, even
with the game in

Cleveland.

 

Sunday

 

Packers @
Bears – Stay away from the rivalry. Can

Chicago
pull the upset? I like the home dog in this one.

 

Saints @
Falcons –

New England struggled down the back
stretch of the regular season in 2007, but finished 16-0.

New Orleans appears to be headed in the same
direction and it won’t be easy. Forget the matchups, every team on their
schedule will be gunning for them. This is pretty much irrelevant since you
likely do not have the Saints in Week 14.

 

Lions @
Ravens – Good week to have the Ravens. After losing on Monday night, the Ravens
need to win to stay alive in the AFC playoff picture. They will learn from

Pittsburgh’s loss again
an inferior opponent and take care of the Lions early.

 

Broncos @
Colts – Stay away, but like the Colts to continue their run on Sunday.

 

Seahawks
@ Texans – The sexy pick of ’09 has officially been a bust. They could not
close out games this year and that cost them from a potential playoff berth.

Seattle has had a
disappointing year as well. I like

Houston
to win this one, as long as Schaub plays, which appears he will after
practicing Wednesday.

 

Jets @
Bucs – Ugly. Avoid this one. Sanchez is also out for the Jets. I like the Bucs
with or without him as the home dog.

 

Panthers
@ Patriots – DeAngelo looks to be back this week, but I have a feeling this one
could get ugly. New England might blow the doors off of

Carolina in this one at home after dropping a
couple. Pats win, big.

 

Dolphins
@ Jaguars – Crucial game in the AFC playoff race. I am leaning towards the home
team here in

Jacksonville, but something tells
me that

Miami will ride the win over

New England into this week’s game. Fish win by a field
goal.

 

Bills @
Chiefs – Give me the home team. Chiefs win.

 

Bengals @
Vikings – This is the best match-up of the early games. Take

Minnesota at home.

Cincinnati needs to find a way to run the
ball in this one against the Vikings tough front.

 

Rams @
Titans –

Tennessee
was bound to lose, but if they weren’t playing Indy, maybe things could have
been different. They’ll get back on track this weekend against

St. Louis. Solid option this late in the
season against a very poor team.

 

Redskins
@ Raiders – Stay away from this game. You’d think to pick the Skins since they
have been playing very well over the last few weeks, but cannot seal the deal.
And

Oakland is coming off a dramatic win in

Pittsburgh. I’ll take

Washington.

 

Chargers
@ Cowboys – Three words:

Dallas
in December. They need to find a way to win this one at home, but if they lose,
they will sputter and see their season go up in flames after an 8-3 start.
Chargers win as Romo has a bad day.

 

Sunday Night

 

Eagles @
Giants – The Giants can jump right back into the NFC East lead if a few things
go their way this Sunday. First things first, they’ll need a win against an
Eagle team that beat them twice in the Meadowlands last year. Can the Giants
stop the streak? On the other hand, the Eagles can move toward a division crown
with a win. It will be a battle until the finish. Giants by 3.

 

Monday Night

 

Cardinals
@ 49ers – Don’t test your luck with the Cards in

San Francisco. You should have some of the
other options like

Houston or

Tennessee at home, rather than chance a team
on the road in this division.

 

Options

: Patriots, Ravens, Titans,
Texans. I like the four home teams in that order. The only road team to consider
is

Pittsburgh.
Hopefully you have one of those home teams at this stage of the game. Patriots
should roll the Panthers in cold Foxboro. The Ravens are the next option, but
they are fairly interchangeable with the Titans. Both playing poor teams at home.
The Texans are a solid option with Schaub under center, but with that not
completely clear, I rank them 4th.

 

Good luck
this week!
