Browns 27 Bills 26
I am beyond sick of the Brian Hoyer hate from NFL fans across the country. He has a team that has been the epitome of horrible for the longest time at 7-4, and on the cusp of the playoffs. Yes, he has struggled lately, but he looked past his mistakes last week, and pulled out a huge comeback win over Atlanta. Chalk another one up for ‘Brian Football’.
Chargers 30 Ravens 28
It doesn’t matter how each team is playing, or has played up until that point, if the Pats meet Baltimore in the playoffs, I will be scared to death. The Ravens always play New England tough, and I don’t want them to make the playoffs. So, with that said, I will be rooting hard for the Chargers to take down the Ravens on the road tomorrow. Baltimore’s 29th ranked pass defense hurts them down the stretch in this one.
Giants 24 Jaguars 20
This game isn’t going to be about who can win, it is going to be about who can screw it up less. These are two of the worst teams in the league, led by two quarterbacks that just stink. Now, Blake Bortles is a rookie placed in a bad situation, so he gets a bit of a pass. But Eli Manning has been playing bad for 11 years now. When does he get canned? Anyway, I’m giving this one to New York because of Odell Beckham Jr.
Bengals 26 Buccaneers 14
Cincinnati is a frustrating team. There are weeks where their overall talent covers for their mediocre quarterback, and they look like a Super Bowl contender. But it all comes back to the most important position on the field in this league, and as long as the Bengals have Andy Dalton running their offense, they won’t do anything in the postseason. Fortunately they play the Bucs this week, so they should get another easy victory.
