Fithian Fab Five For Weekend Of 12-16-11
Lions -1 at the Raiders: When Oakland’s are at their best they are attacking the quarterback while trying to run down hill with the ground game. If Darrin Mcffadden was healthy and playing against Detroit I could see going with the home team in this one but Mcfadden is out .
Both teams have mental toughness issues but with Ndamukong Suh coming off suspension I see a more disciplined Lions team. Plus, Detroit seems to be getting healthier too. Lions are the better team in pretty much a pick em. Prediction: Detroit 31 Oakland 28
New York Giants -7 Redskins I’m still trying to figure out how the Cowboys lost that game and the Giants won this past Sunday night. G-men continue to find away to win close games. Prediction New York 24 Washington 21
Jets -1 at Eagles Vicks back and good for a win Prediction: Philadelphia 24 New York 21
Ravens -2 at Chargers San Diego has been living a charmed life along with a charmed schedule as of late. Ravens pass rush and the left side of the Bolts offensive line the difference in the game. Prediction: Baltimore 30 San Diego 21
