2014 NFL Picks Week 12

By the time last Thursday's game was over, I reached 100 wins for the season! However, the rest of the games didn't go quite so well as I finished 8-6 for the week. It dropped my overall mark by a few tenths, but nothing significant. Rounding up a little, I'm still at 67%. I was only 1 of 3 for upsets, which brings that overall tally to 13-15. My Pick of the Week was barely successful, but raised my  record to 9-2.

So let's get this out of the way: Nobody was picking St. Louis over Denver. Don't even try to tell me you did! Washington proved they can't win with any QB, as Tampa Bay beat them for only their 2nd win all year. I picked home underdog Carolina to win, but Atlanta decided to spoil that party late in the game. Houston ended up beating Cleveland, once again proving that Cleveland is impossible to predict. My 5th and final loss from the 1pm games came when New Orleans failed to score more than Cincinnati; 2 more teams I can't figure out. And finally, in my "what was I thinking?!?" upset pick, Arizona beat Detroit at home. And so we come to Week 12, where we will see the last of the by weeks:

Thursday, 8:30pm
Kansas City Chiefs at Oakland Raiders
Sunday, 1pm
Detroit Lions at New England Patriots
Cleveland Browns at Atlanta Falcons
New York Jets at Buffalo Bills

2014 NFL Picks Week 11

I managed to fare slightly worse than last week, but still increased by overall mark slightly with a 9-4 record for Week 10. It wasn't enough to raise it above 67% overall, but still an improvement. I correctly chose my Pick of the Week (Denver over Oakland) and improved to 8-2 overall. I was 0-1 in my only upset pick of the week, dropping that record below .500 again to 12-13.

I'd have to look back, but this may have been my first Thursday Night Football loss. Shame on me for picking anemic Cincinnati over "are they good?" Cleveland. Again, I lost 2 very close games late, as San Francisco beat New Orleans and Kansas City defeated Buffalo, both on the road. Finally, in a game I'm sure nobody picked correctly, the New York Jets took care of the Pittsburgh Steelers. On to Week 11:

Thursday, 8:30pm
Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins
Sunday, 1pm
Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears
Seattle Seahawks at Kansas City Chiefs
San Francisco 49ers at New York Giants
Denver Broncos at St. Louis Rams
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Washington Redskins
Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers
Houston Texans at Cleveland Browns
Cincinnati Bengals at New Orleans Saints
Sunday, 4/4:25pm
Oakland Raiders at *San Diego Chargers*
Philadelphia Eagles at Green Bay Packers
Detroit Lions at Arizona Cardinals
Sunday, 8:30pm
New England Patriots at Indianapolis Colts
Sunday, 8:30pm
Pittsburgh Steelers at Tennessee Titans

Byes
Baltimore Ravens, Dallas Cowboys, Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Jets

2014 NFL Picks Week 10

I saw a definite improvement during Week 9, as I finished at 10-3 (2nd lowest loss total of the year). It raised my overall percentage a tad to 67%+. After losing last week, I correctly chose my Pick of the Week to improve to 7-2. I only picked 2 upset picks, but was successful in both to bring me back to .500 on the season at 12-12.

While others may had picked Miami over San Diego, nobody would have picked a 37-0 blowout. Oops. I also doubt that anybody picked St. Louis to beat San Francisco, but that's what happened. Finally, I regret not picking New England at home against Denver in a toss-up. On to Week 10:

Thursday, 8:30pm
Cleveland Browns at Cincinnati Bengals
Sunday, 1pm
Atlanta Falcons at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Dallas Cowboys at Jacksonville Jaguars (London)
San Francisco 49ers at New Orleans Saints
Pittsburgh Steelers at New York Jets
Tennessee Titans at Baltimore Ravens
Miami Dolphins at Detroit Lions
Kansas City Chiefs at Buffalo Bills
Sunday, 4/4:25pm

Sunday, 8:30pm
Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers
Monday, 8:30pm
Carolina Panthers at Philadelphia Eagles

Byes
