Week 13 Preview

How ‘bout them Cowboys!? Dak and Zeke are taking the league by storm and they are running away with the NFC East title. A huge road victory on Thursday night up in Minnesota has lifted the Boys to 11-1 on the season. I truthfully think they are the clear cut favorite to win the NFC crown and play in the Super Bowl.

With that being said, what other games this weekend should we be watching this weekend around the NFL? Let’s take a peak, shall we?

Hotlanta Hiccup (Kansas City @ Atlanta):

The Kansas City Chiefs are sitting pretty for a wild card spot in this year’s playoffs, but this weekend they are heading down to the hip hop capital of the world to play the Dirty Birds at the Georgia Dome. The Atlanta Falcons are coming off a huge win over the Cardinals and I look for them to continue that success this week against the Chiefs. The Chiefs have allowed over 300 passing yards in each of the last two games, and I see no reason to believe that Matt Ryan and Julio Jones won’t pick apart the KC secondary. Alex Smith is elite, but not elite enough this week ladies and gents, Falcons get the victory 38-24.

Baltimore Blues (Miami @ Baltimore):

Miami is 7-4 and very much in the running for a wild card spot, while the Baltimore Ravens are 6-5 and are in first place in the AFC North, I look for that to change this Sunday. After a dismal 1-4 start, Miami has won 6 straight and are on a role. I believe Ryan Tannehill will lead the Fins into Baltimore and secure a huge win for Miami, and solidify their rise in the league. Jay Ajayi is running wild right now and he gets a chance to go up against the league’s best run defense, I cannot wait to see that matchup. Call it a hunch on this one, I just see the Dolphins snagging a much needed road victory this week, Fins 20-17.

Lambeau Life-support (Houston @ Green Bay):

Green Bay is hanging on by a thread right now, and they are very much still alive in the NFC North race. The Vikings lost Thursday and the Lions have a tough task this week with the New Orleans offense, so the packers might be able to get into a second place tie by the end of the weekend. Houston has a great defense, no offense, so this poses as an interesting matchup. Aaron Rodgers needs to have a good game if the Packers are going to in this game, and I think he will, Packers 31-24.

Steel City Showdown (New York Giants @ Pittsburgh):

The Giants are a sneaky 8-3 and are the only team that can say they beat the Cowboys this season, but they run into a Steelers team that is fighting for a division title with Baltimore. Huge bonus to the Steelers for being at home in this one. I love the Antonio Brown and Odell Beckham Jr headline in this one, whoever scores more will be on the winning side, and for me that’s Pittsburgh. I think Big Ben and the steel curtain will shut Eli and OBJ down to take sole possession of first place in the AFC North this week. Steelers 35-23.

Quick Picks:

Detroit @ New Orleans: Detroit

LA @ New England: New England

Denver @ Jacksonville: Denver

Philadelphia @ Cincinnati: Cincinnati

San Francisco @ Chicago: San Francisco

Buffalo @ Oakland: Oakland

Washington @ Arizona: Arizona
