Lions vs Browns – The Lions have been very tricky even though they haven’t won any games yet.  This might be the week that they finally get off the Schnide as Baker and the Browns have been trending in the wrong direction in the midst of a very disappointing season

(Thursday Night) Patriots vs Falcons – Bill Belichick has the Patriots getting back on track. Mac Jones is looking like the Offensive Rookie of the year.  Take the Pats over the Dirty Birds.

Sunday’s Slate

Ravens vs Bears – Get right game for Baltimore that didn’t know what to do with Miami’s blitz last Thursday.

Washington vs Panthers – Ron Rivera, Scott Turner and Taylor Heinicke all Carolina Panther alum, come home with a W, as his improving defense beats Cam and the Panthers.

Colts vs Bills – Bills after looking dominant to start have faltered a bit.  They find a way to get right against the Colts.

Lions vs Browns – The Lions have been very tricky even though they haven’t won any games yet.  This might be the week that they finally get off the Schnide as Baker and the Browns have been trending in the wrong direction in the midst of a very disappointing season

Texas vs Titans – The Titans have quietly gone 8-2 despite losing Derick Henry for the season.  I expect the Titans to continue to roll.

Packers vs Vikings – The Packers and Vikings could be a trap game for the Packers.   Kirk Cousins and the Vikes play teams tough even if their record (4-5) doesn’t reflect it. All that being said expect a Rodgers Discount Double Check (State Farm didn’t pull their endorsement after the “Immunized” fiasco).  Like a good neighbor State Farm is still there (writing checks to football A-Rod).

Dolphins vs Jets – The Dolphins are going for… 3 wins in a row “That’s called a winning streak, it has happened before”  (Quote from Major League II, Look for it on youtube if you didn’t recognize the quote) The J E T S are terrible and ripe for the picking. Brian Flores might not quite be fighting for his job, but the leather office chair that sits behind his desk is starting to get a little warm.  Racking up a few W’s during the back half of the season can’t hurt

Saints vs Eagles – Who is playing QB for the Saints?  No seriously who?  Trevor Siemian?  Ummm… I’ll take the Eagles by a hair.

49ers vs Jags – Fresh off pounding the Rams lets see if Kyle Shanahan and his guys can keep the momentum going against a team they should beat.  I’m betting he’ll find a way.

Bengals vs Raiders – Two 5-4 Teams.  The Bengals still have their coaching staff intact and some interesting parts starting with Joe Burrow.  I think those Crazy Cats from Cincy will steal one at the Death Star.  Taking the Bengals!!

Cowboys vs Chiefs – The Chiefs are starting to click, and the Cowboys after losing badly to Denver bounced back in week 10.  Betting with my heart here, which means, Anybody who is playing vs the Cowboys is my pick.  Follow this pick at your own risk.

Cardinals vs Seahawks – Seahawks just aren’t very good this season.  Ciara prayed for a husband and landed Russell Wilson. Maybe she should pray for a Seahawks win.  Lettuce pray “Dear lord please have the Seahawks let Dear Russell Cook, and bless his strong hands that will create a winning meal.  Amen!”  But you know what they say about prayer with works…   Cardinals win.

Steelers vs Chargers – Expect to see lots of gold terrible towels at SoFi Stadium.  It will feel like a road game for the Chargers. Justin Herbert will flutter his long luxurious locks and look into the camera and hear the ‘boos’ and steal a line from Mike Tomlin and tell those adoring Steeler fans “We do not care”. Bolts for the win!!!

Giants vs Buccaneers (Monday Night) – First off Mr Schedule Man… You owe ESPN a check for this terrible scheduling.  Why are the god awful New York Giants on Monday Night Football?  Brady takes out his two game losing streak grudge on the G Men.  Eli Manning cries about how bad his team gets beat on national television over on the alternative broadcast. Bucs Win!

Fantasy Start ‘em Sit ‘em

Dak Prescott – Start ‘em  (Chiefs Defense is awful)

Cardinals Defense – Start ‘em (Against the struggling Seattle Offense)

Russell Wilson – Sit ‘em (he’s just not playing well right now)

Hey NFL, please stop subjecting us to Thanksgiving football games in Detroit!!!  The Lions are annually awful, why must we do this every year.  There are other teams with domes, if they need the game to be inside, Atlanta, New Orleans, and Houston.  Tradition is not a logical reason to continue to do something.  Logic at some point has to take over at the NFL offices.
