The Hoser's 2014 NFL Picks, Week 14 Edition

Just the scores this week, for the most part.

Houston (-5.5) at Jacksonville (42): -5.5 is also the O/U on number of sacks J.J. Watts gets. Texans 24, Jaguars 20.
NY Giants (-1) at Tennessee (46): The true measure of suckiness is being a home dog to the freaking Giants. Giants 26, Titans 17.
Tampa Bay (+10) at Detroit (41.5): I'm not saying the Buccaneers are going to win this game, but a 10-point spread in a game with an O/U of 41.5 is pretty damn big. Lions 24, Buccaneers 16.
St. Louis (-3) at Washington (44): Put your hands up ... if you would have been fired from your job for making a public statement without the approval of your boss. Rams 26, Racists 20.
Buffalo (+10) at Denver (47.5): You know you think your team is pretty damned superior when you can waste a roster spot on a kicker who only kicks off. Broncos 37, Bills 20.
Kansas City (-1) at Arizona (40): Do you think the Cardinals have thought about trying to trade for Ryan Fitzpatrick or Matt Schaub? Stop laughing -- I'm serious. I like Drew Stanton, but this is a hell of a trial by fire for him. Wouldn't it be worth a draft pick or two to get a proven QB in for the stretch run and the playoffs? Chiefs 20, Cardinals 16.
San Francisco (-8) at Oakland (41): Call this the "Get Acquainted With Your New Home, Coach Harbaugh" game. 49ers 30, Raiders 21.
New York Jets (+5.5) at Minnesota (40): Vikings 26, Jets 20.
Carolina (+9.5) at New Orleans (50): Saints 31, Panthers 17.
Baltimore (+3) at Miami (46): Dolphins 23, Ravens 21.
Pittsburgh (+3) at Cincinnati (47.5): Bengals 31, Steelers 21.
Indianapolis (-3.5) at Cleveland (50): Colts 26, Browns 20.
Seattle (+1.5) at Philadephia (48.5): Eagles 27, Seahawks 20.
New England (-3.5) at San Diego (52): Patriots 30, Chargers 24.
Atlanta (+13) at Green Bay (56): Packers 34, Falcons 23.

  1. Dear Wayne,

    I would really like to contact you in private, but I can't find any link to contact form or twitter profile, so I'll try this way.

    My name is Adam and I'm an Android developer. Fed up with mass produced, corporate news with very little insight, I've decided that enough is enough and started looking for some quality content. It turns out that there's plenty of it - written by fans on their blogs. But reading blogs on mobile devices was hard and uncomfortable - that's how the idea of an Android application for NFL bloggers was born.

    The "Football Blogs" app was created to give bloggers more mobile presence and let them access wider audience. It allows to follow almost a 100 blogs from NFL blogosphere - including yours.

    Right now the beta version of the app is available here:

    Please try it and let me know what you think!

    The app is only a tool to read shared data efficiently. If for some reason you think that feed from your website should not be included please let me know - I will remove it from the app as soon as I can.

    Best regards,
    Adam K.
