NFL Week 12 Predictions

By Brett Malamud

BYES: Panthers, Steelers
-FINAL: Chiefs 20 (7-4) at Raiders 24 (5-4), Thursday
FINALLY! The Raiders pick up their first win of the season.

-Browns (6-4) at Falcons (4-6), Sunday @ 1:00 PM EST

The Browns will beat the league’s worst defense this week. Verdict: Browns

-Titans (2-8) at Eagles (7-3), Sunday @ 1:00 PM EST

Looking forward to watching Mark Sanchez here. I think that he’ll play well and that the Eagles will win the game. Verdict: Eagles

-Lions (7-3) at Patriots (8-2), Sunday @ 1:00 PM EST

This will be a great game. However, I think that Brady takes down the league’s top defense. Verdict: Patriots

-Packers (7-3) at Vikings (4-6), Sunday @ 1:00 PM EST

The rivalry continues. I don’t see any way that the Packers lose here.  Verdict: Packers

-Jaguars (1-9) at Colts (6-4), Sunday @ 1:00 PM EST

This one could be ugly. Luck is going to take over the game in route to a Colts victory. Verdict: Colts

-Bengals (6-3-1) at Texans (5-5)Sunday @ 1:00 PM EST

I’m going based on my gut. I think that the Texans pull a win out this week. Verdict: Texans

-Buccaneers (2-8) at Bears (4-6), Sunday @ 1:00 PM EST

Bucs should be a factor in this one. Verdict: Bears

-Cardinals (9-1) at Seahawks (6-4), Sunday @ 4:05 PM EST

This is my game of the week. The Cardinals will have a rough time. I think that the 12th man comes through this week. Verdict: Seahawks

The 12th Man should be a factor this week

The 12th Man should be a factor this week

-Rams (4-6) at Chargers (6-4), Sunday @ 4:05 PM EST

This should be close, but not too close. Chargers will coast to the victory. Verdict: Chargers

-Redskins (3-7) at 49ers (6-4), Sunday @ 4:25 PM EST

The Niners should manhandle them. Verdict: 49ers

-Dolphins (6-4) at Broncos (7-3), Sunday @ 4:25 PM EST

The Dolphins have been good, but not great. Peyton and co. will take care of them. Verdict: Broncos

-Cowboys (7-3) at Giants (3-7), Sunday @ 8:30 PM EST

This could be a great game. I don’t think that it will be though, and expect the cowboys to get out to an early lead and not look back. Verdict: Cowboys


-Jets (2-8) at Bills (5-5), Monday @ 7:00 PM EST

This game got moved to Detroit, an indoor facility. I think that the Jets run game takes advantage of that and grinds out for the upset. Verdict: Jets

-Ravens (6-4) at Saints (4-6), Monday @ 8:30 PM EST

I’m going to take the high powered Saints offense in this one. Currently they rank 2nd among the league. Verdict: Saints
