• Week 14 Runnin' and Gunnin': Pick the High Score of the Week




    We have a winner! Making a strong late-season run, jfkaspar (3) has now won two of the last three weeks. The Lions were his choice, ignoring all of my excellent advice against picking a Thursday game. Wise man.

    The Seahawks were within a touchdown of snatching the crown by the end of the third quarter, but thereafter they valued minutes more than yards and didn’t score a single point in the fourth quarter. So near, yet so far. *cry*

    And so we move onto week 14. The Saints are back home and angry, but that’s Carolina’s defense on the other side of the ball. Buffalo’s defense showed very little against Atlanta last week, giving up five yards per carry to a really awful offensive line. The surging Jaguars (wow, did I just write that?) are hosting Texas, a team that’s giving up 27 points a game, 27th in the league. But I’m going to bet against another reeling team. I take New England Patriots against Cleveland.

    Your options:


    Thursday Night Football

    Texans @ Jaguars -- 8:25 p.m.

    Sunday games

    Vikings @ Ravens -- 1 p.m.
    Chiefs @ Redskins -- 1 p.m.
    Bills @ Buccaneers -- 1 p.m.
    Dolphins @ Steelers -- 1 p.m.
    Lions @ Eagles -- 1 p.m.
    Panthers @ Saints -- 1 p.m.
    Colts @ Bengals -- 1 p.m.
    Browns @ Patriots -- 1 p.m.
    Raiders @ Jets -- 1 p.m.
    Titans @ Broncos -- 4:05 p.m.
    Rams @ Cardinals -- 4:25 p.m.
    Seahawks @ 49ers -- 4:25 p.m.
    Giants @ Chargers -- 4:25 p.m.
    Falcons @ Packers -- 8:30 p.m.

    Monday Night Football

    Cowboys @ Bears -- 8:40 p.m.

    Good luck!!

      I will take Broncos. Shouldn't Peyton know Tenn?

      Lions.

      Lions can score at will. They are coming off extra rest. Burleson is back and has a game under his belt. Pettigrew, Bell, Bush...

      And Philly's defense could not stop a nosebleed.

      Broncos. Peyton is ten TDs away from the record.

      I was tempted. But TN plays pretty good defense and with Denver's d-line so banged up, they're going to enjoy some possession as well. For me, that was enough to think that a high score will be out of reach.

      I just can't bring myself to bet on Stafford. He scares me.

      Cleveland loses a d-lineman. Detroit's Bush has an calf, held out from practice.

      I wanna say lions because foles is due for a pick or 2, and the lions have excellent weaponry... But... Nah I'll ignore my reservations...

      Lions nuke the iggles...

      A lot of picks in the Lions-Eagles game. You're doomed! The snow is so heavy you can barely see the players at times. This is going to be an extremely low-scoring game.

      Heck, right now Detroit's going for 2 because kicking an extra point is impossible.
