Week 13 predictions

Posted: November 27, 2019 in Football, New entries, NFL

Thursday:

Bears at Lions. Bears. David Blough, 3rd string QB will be starting at QB for the Lions.

Bills at Cowboys Bills. The Cowboys can’t beat a good defense. Even at home. Their wins have come only against teams that have bad defenses (Dolphins, Giants, Eagles, Redskins).

Saints at Falcons Falcons. Everyone else on planet earth is picking the Saints. The Saints are an overall better team, with a great coach. I don’t see how they fixed whatever happened from last game when they lost to Atlanta. Additionally, this game will be in Atlanta. Saints left tackle Terron Armstead will be out for this game.

Sunday:

Browns at Steelers Browns. The Browns have turned a corner, they are playing better football than they were. Devlin Hodges will be more competitive than Rudolph, it should be a close game.

Packers at Giants Packers

Eagles at Dolphins Eagles

Buccaneers at Jaguars Jaguars. Nick Foles should have no trouble trading scores with Winston against the Bucs very generous defense. Jacksonville can still capably run the ball against elite run defenses as we saw in their win against the Jets. The Jacksonville defense will be eager to create some turnovers against an interception friendly Winston. Jacksonville wins a close one at home. Tampa Bay puts up a lot of points but they turn the all over so much and can’t play any defense. Jags HC Doug Marrone’s going to really have to mess it up to lose here.

Titans at Colts Titans. I really like Frank Reich and want to pick the Colts here. I like Reich better than Vrabel as a playcaller. Their last game in Tennessee Indy won by two points. Since that time, the Titans got Ryan Tannehill at quarterback who is performing at a surprisingly efficient level (much more so than Mariota). The Titans also got Jeffrey Simmons at defensive tackle who was on injured/reserve for that game who is playing at a high level since coming into the NFL.

Jets at Bengals Jets. Andy Dalton is back in at QB to try and get a win for Cincinnati. The Jets are on a three game win streak and have to beat the worst team in football.

Redskins at Panthers Panthers.

49ers at Ravens Ravens. I am a 49ers fan and want the 9ers to win. 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh seems to struggle most against dual threat QBs (loss to Russell Wilson and close wins to Kyler Murray). The path to victory for San Francisco is grinding out the run (Kansas City and Cleveland both dominated Baltimore in the ground game in the Ravens two losses). San Francisco still has a competitive front four even with Dee Ford out, so they CAN win this game, Baltimore is playing prettier football right now.

Rams at Cardinals Rams

Chargers at Broncos Chargers. Derwin James is back. Rivers is still a top shelf passer, Brandon Allen has a limited toolkit to compete with defensive talent like Joey Bosa and the Chargers secondary.

Raiders at Chiefs Chiefs. Pat Mahomes can still dice up the Raiders defense.

Patriots at Texans Patriots. Belichick has never lost to Bill O’Brien. The Texans don’t have a secondary and still have an underperforming offensive line.

Monday:

Vikings at Seahawks Seahawks. Russell Wilson is having the best season of his career.
