We are now half way through the NFL season. I know, it’s very sad to hear. However, this is when football gets going for real. Everything is do or die. The elite will stand up and make the run to the playoffs. We have so many games this week that have playoff implications that I wanted to try my hand in predicting all the games. Yes you read that right, ALL OF THE GAMES. Let’s get started with our Bay Area teams.

Falcons @ 49ers- Pick: Falcons

Colin Kaepernick will be watching this game from the bench and Blaine Gabbert will be under center. This may just be the move that would shake up a team enough to get the team motivated to win. Well, most teams. The Falcons high flying attack will be rolling full force and the dirty birds win big.
Raiders @ Pittsburgh- Pick: Raiders
I told Raider Nation that I would not pick against them in a tight game again. I think this is going to be a close game. The defense needs to step up as they are 31st against the pass right now and Big Ben loves to sling it. Normally I’d pick the Steelers but I believe the Raiders will stand up and prove they are a good team getting ready to go to the playoffs. This would be their first three game win streak since 2011.
Browns @ Bengals- Pick: Bengals
Throw out the records, this is a rivalry game and it will be close. However, the Red Rifle will lead the Bengals to their 8th win of the year.
Dolphins @ Bills- Pick: Bills
Bills have been not playing to the standards that they should have been, but I think they bounce back here. Miami has looked better but they’ll struggle against the Bills defense.
Packers @ Panthers- Pick: Panthers
This is no doubt the game of the week. I find it very hard to believe that the Packers lose two in a row but the Panthers defense has been awesome. Of course, don’t forget about Super Cam.
Jaguars @ Jets- Pick: Jaguars
This is somewhat of an upset but I really like what the Jags have been doing. They have been playing so well offensively and the injury to Fitzmagic will hurt the Jets.
Rams @ Vikings- Pick: Vikings
This is another very good game with playoff implications. Both teams play sound defense. Both teams run the ball extremely well. The difference? Teddy Bridgewater. Give me the Vikes.
Redskins @ Patriots- Pick: Patriots
Do I have to say anything? I don’t think the Patriots will lose this season. They are angry and rolling. This one will be ugly. You like that? You like that.
Titans @ Saints- Pick: Saints
Did you see the Saints last week? They put up a fifty burger on the Giants. With or without Mariota, there’s no way the Titans can keep up with the Saints who have looked very good as of late.
Giants @ Bucs- Pick: Bucs
I silently like what the Bucs have been doing recently. A big win last week versus the Falcons and I think they keep it rolling. If Jameis can limit the turnovers, the game is theirs.
Broncos @ Colts- Pick: Broncos
This could be the final game for Peyton Manning in Indianapolis. This will be his day to finally play great in the house that he built. Look for Vernon Davis to return to the spotlight. Broncos win in a blowout. Yeah, blowout.
Eagles @ Cowboys- Pick: Eagles
I’m using reverse psychology against the Eagles this week. I really think the Cowboys will win this game because their defense is playing top notch and Dez should be healthier this week. However, when I pick the Cowboys they lose so… I pick the Eagles.
Bears @ Chargers- Pick: Chargers
If Matt Forte plays, I pick the Bears. No Forte, no win. The Chargers will score a lot of points and Jay Cutler won’t be able to keep up. He’ll throw two or more picks. I think Melvin Gordon has a big day for the first time in his career.
This is going to be a great weekend of football so enjoy it! Not many times will you get such competitive games as this until the playoffs. It all kicks off tonight on NFL Network. Enjoy everyone!
