The Sport Report NFL Predictions: Week 13


*Sorry for Lateness*

New York Jets @ Washington Redskins

Score: Redskins 24 – Jets 23

Spread: Redskins (+3.5)

Note – The Jets should have never beaten the Bills especially how they played. The Redskins have been very competitive since the re-emergence of Rex Grossman into the lineup. Both these teams haven’t been consistent, and I expect a close game. I see an upset here and I’m going with the Redskins.

 Atlanta Falcons @ Houston Texans 

Score: Falcons 20 – Texans 17

Spread: Falcons (-2.5)

Note – The Texans are ailing at quarterback although I believe they will be fine in the later weeks. The Falcons are rolling lately and should continue that. Falcons take a close game.

Denver Broncos @ Minnesota Vikings 

Score: Vikings 23 – Broncos 20

Spread:  Vikings (-0.5)

Note –  No AP still but they played a good game against a solid Falcons team minus the goaline stop. Tebow has created waves in Denver but the defense should be credited as well. I like the guy who can throw here in Ponder.

Cincinnati Bengals @ Pittsburgh Steelers

Score: Steelers 31 – Bengals 24

Spread: Bengals (+7.5)

Note – Bengals should keep it close the way they have been playing and especially after seeing how Pittsburgh played last week. I like Pittsburgh though as Andy Dalton struggles against good defenses.

Tennessee Titans @ Buffalo Bills

Score: Bills 24 – Titans 17

Spread: Bills (-1.5)

Note – If not for Stevie Johnson’s drops the Bills would of been in the thick of a playoff race. Instead they face the Titans who are knocking at the wildcard door. Season is gloom in Buffalo but they have a chance still. I like what I say last week from the Bills, and I give them the edge.

Carolina Panthers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Score: Panthers 34 – Buccaneers 24

Spread: Panthers (+2.5)

Note – Should be a high scoring game with both teams being bottom tier, I like Cam so I’m picking the Panthers.

 Indianapolis Colts @ New England Patriots

Score: Patriots 34 – Colts 17

Spread: Colts (+20.5)

Note – No brainer win for the Patriots here

Kansas City Chiefs @ Chicago Bears 

Score: Bears 25 – Chiefs 13

Spread: Bears (-8.5)

Note – Although Hanie struggled I liked what I saw in the 2nd half from him. The defense was absolutely great and they will be facing Tyler Palco this week. Bears should take this easily.

Oakland Raiders @ Miami Dolphins

Score: Dolphins 30 – Raiders 13

Spread: Dolphins (-2.5)

Note – I truly see the Dolphins destroying the Raiders here, reason is half the Raiders team is injured.

Baltimore Ravens @ Cleveland Browns 

Score: Ravens 27 – Browns 10

Spread: Ravens (-6.5)

Note – The Ravens defense will be too much for the Browns as usual, and look for McCoy to have a mediocre game.

Dallas Cowboys @ Arizona Cardinals

Score: Cardinals 27 – Cowboys 23

Spread: Cardinals (+4.5)

Note – Kolb is back and I really feel an upset here. The Cardinals play well at home and the boys struggle on the road. Cardinals will shock some people but I dont think there that bad of a team.

St. Louis Rams @ San Francisco 49ers

Score: 49ers 22 – Rams 13

Spread: Rams (+13.5)

Note – 49ers don’t dominate anyone because there offense isn’t as solid as it should be. The defense flat out wins games for them as you’ll see in this game as well. Rams keep it close but they wont get to the defense.

Green Bay Packers @ New York Giants 

Score: Giants 34 – Packers 33

Spread: Giants (+6.5)

Note – Should be a wild shootout but I have the Giants in this huge upset. Eli Manning looked great last week but the defense did not play up their norm. Packers can be exploited via passing which I believe Eli and the Giants will do.

Detroit Lions @ New Orleans Saints

Score: Saints 40 – Lions 27

Spread: Saints (-7.5)

Note – A shootout but I just don’t think the Lions are ready this year. Brees should pick them apart especially with Jimmy Graham.

San Diego Chargers @ Jacksonville Jaguars 

Score: Chargers 34 – Jaguars 20

Spread: Chargers (-2.5)

Note – The Chargers will finally show up I believe in a game too little too late. What a MNF game though, should be interesting to see 2 teams that will both eventually see coaching changes. Jaguars already shuffled around the staff, expect the Chargers too soon as well.
