Detroit -10 Minnesota – I still think the Lions are going to the playoffs but if they lose Sunday then All bets are off. Quarterback Christian Ponder and running back Adrian Peterson look like they aren’t going to play. Why would AP play? He said this week he was 80% on his bad ankle. Vikings aren’t going anywhere and either is AP if he’s not 100%. Add to the mix that the Lions gave away the last two games with a lack of mental toughness — all points to a Detroit Lions victory to me.
Predication Lions 35 Vikings 17
Other NFL picks I like Houston +3 at Cinci -Texans pass defense has been one of the best this year in the league. Houston’s Arian Foster outduels the Bengals Cedric Benson.
Prediction Texans 28 Bengals 24
NY Jets -8.5 Chiefs – KC has been coming out with great effort as of late and still getting beat. Jets at home looks and smells like a double digit victory to me.
Prediction Jets 30 Chiefs 13
San Diego -4.5 v Buffalo – Chargers have major issues with their offensive line but against the Bills Will be able to at least get 30 points.
Prediction Chargers 38 Bills 31
Dallas -5.5 vs Giants –Cowboys haven’t been able to beat the G-men in their new place yet. A banged up Giants team gives the advantage to the Boys.
Prediction Cowboys 24 Giants 17
