Moose's Weekly Picks
Houston (-3) at Detroit
PICK: Houston. It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without a Detroit Lions loss. Ndamukong Suh's recklessness will be center stage as well. Look for him to deliver the Hogan leg drop to somebody.
Washington (+3.5) at Dallas
PICK: Dallas. Once again, don't be fooled into thinking that any team is good after they beat the Eagles. On a side note, I am very disappointed with the dismissal of the robotic turkey on FOX. His replacement CLEATUS is nowhere near as annoying/awesome. He also doesn't respond to my tweets asking about the robotic turkey.
NEP (-6.5) at NYJ
PICK: NEP. I am hesitant to make this pick with no Gronk for the Pats. However, their defense is looking up and their offense is still pretty scary. I hope they wear those nice red unis as well.
Oakland (+8) at Cincinnati
PICK: Cincy. The Bengals defense is pretty good. Carson Palmer also hates playing in Cincinnati.
Pittsburgh (pick 'em) at Cleveland
PICK: Cleveland. With no Big Ben, Cleveland wins this game to show that they are this year's "good bad team" a la the Lions of years past.
Buffalo (-3) at Indianapolis
PICK: Indy. The Colts return home licking their wounds, but they will beat the Bills.
Denver (-10.5) at Kansas City
PICK: Denver. The Chiefs might want to kick the tires on Elvis Grbac or Steve Deberg at this point.
Tennessee (-3) at Jacksonville
PICK: Tennessee. Over under on QB changes in this game is 1.5 as well.
Minnesota (pick 'em) at Chicago
PICK: Chicago. The Bears looked pretty putrid against San Francisco last night, but will likely have Jay Cutler back against the Bikes. They will also be able to contain Adrian Peterson I think.
Atlanta (-1) at Tampa Bay
PICK: Atlanta. The leg breaker pulled a fast one on me last week. This week he is not so lucky. I'll make this my NO DOUBTER of the week.
Seattle (-3) at Miami
PICK: Seattle. And now the award for the team that traveled the furthest to be here...
Baltimore (-1) at San Diego
PICK: Baltimore. Despite the injuries, the Ravens are still playing tough. Meanwhile, fun fact about Norv Turner; "Turner has coached the most games in NFL history among head coaches with an overall losing record." -Wikipedia
San Francisco (-2) at New Orleans
PICK: New Orleans. The Saints are on a roll. I would consider them a legitimate threat to win the NFC at this point.
St. Louis (+2.5) at Arizona
PICK: Arizona. I can't believe I'm picking Arizona. This is silly.
Green Bay (+2.5) at NYG
PICK: Green Bay. The NYG have looked pretty meek over the last few weeks. That said, they always beat the Packers, so I dunno.
Carolina (+2.5) at Philadelphia
PICK: Carolina. How on earth are the Panthers underdogs? The Eagles literally do nothing well.
LAST WEEK: 5-9
SEASON RECORD: 69-70-3
NO DOUBTER RECORD: 5-5
