The Saturday start caught us unprepared -- which should frankly make no difference in the accuracy of our picks. Good luck to those of you playing in your fantasy football championships this weekend and Merry Christmas to all!
Oakland (+2.5) at KANSAS CITY (42): We're surprised SeaBass's 65-yard-attempt last week just didn't rip the hand off the guy who blocked it. Raiders 22, Chiefs 16.
Denver (-2.5) at BUFFALO (43.5): You gotta think if Tebow actually HAS connections upstairs, they're gonna come through big time this week. Broncos 23, Bills 19.
Jacksonville (+7) at TENNESSEE (39.5): We thought the Jake Locker era would start last week. It should have. Titans 24, Jaguars 13.
Arizona (+4.5) at CINCINNATI (41): Did you know the Cardinals are 7-7? Does anyone know that? Bengals 20, Cardinals 17.
Miami (+8) at NEW ENGLAND (50): It's two-hoodie weather in New England, we think. Patriots 27, Dolphins 17.
Cleveland (+11.5) at BALTIMORE (39): Don't they know Peyton Hillis is back? Ravens 22, Browns 13.
New York Giants (+3) at NEW YORK JETS (47): Give the Giants credit -- I don't think I'd be able to show my face in New York after last week's performance. They were worse than that "Kung Fu Panda" Christmas special. Jets 23, Giants 17.
Minnesota (+6.5) at WASHINGTON (44): Free Joe Webb! Racists 23, Vikings 17.
Tampa Bay (+7.5) at CAROLINA (48.5): Don't let your kids watch this one -- the nightmares will keep them from getting to sleep and letting Santa do his work. Panthers 26, Buccaneers 17.
St. Louis Rams (+10.5) at PITTSBURGH (34.5): I hope Andrew Luck like Budweiser. Steelers 24, Rams 10.
San Diego (+2) at DETROIT (52.5): The Chargers are making their annual late-season rush, but it stops in the Motor City. Lions 29, Chargers 24.
San Francisco (-1) at SEATTLE (37.5): Game of the week here, and Beast Mode is still in effect for the holidays. Seahawks 20, 49ers 16.
Philadelphia (+1.5) at DALLAS (51): Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said this week he was scared of the Eagles, but he might have just been looking at old bills from his plastic surgeon. Cowboys 27, Eagles 24.
Chicago (+11) at GREEN BAY (42): Hoo boy, this could be a bloodbath. The Bears would be better off installing Brian Urlacher at QB and just running 60 sneaks. Packers 27, Bears 10.
Atlanta (+7) at NEW ORLEANS (52): Anyone else see the Falcon sideline every week and wonder how Gomez Addams got a sideline pass? Saints 29, Falcons 26.
Lock of the Week: New England
Trifecta: New England, Seattle, Dallas
