Thanks to both SB Nation New York franchises -- the New York Jets and Giants -- I put together another winning-record last week (3-2). Now, lately I haven't been tearing up the betting world, but I am steady and in this game that's all that counts. So, let's try to keep climbing above .500 with my Week 15 NFL Predictions and Picks.
Falcons (-12) vs. Jaguars (Thurs., 8:20 p.m. ET on NFL Network): Unless MJD scores four touchdowns like he did last week, then there's no chance that Jacksonville (4-9) covers this spread against Atlanta (8-5). Prediction: Falcons 30, Jaguars 17.
Packers (-14 1/2) at Chiefs (1 p.m. on FOX): So, let me get this straight... Green Bay (13-0) is getting just 12 points against Kansas City (5-8), which doesn't have a head coach, a running back, a quarterback and enters with a defense that gave up 37 points against the New York Jets last week. Haha. Prediction: Packers 42, Chiefs 7.
Giants (-7) vs. Redskins (1 p.m. on FOX): New York fans have to hope that last week's victory over the Dallas Cowboys will spark the Giants (7-6) to bigger and better things. I have to think that Washington's performance against the New England Patriots last week was as good as the Redskins (4-9) are going to get for the rest of the season. Prediction: Giants 28, Redskins 14.
Patriots (-7) at Broncos (4:15 p.m. on CBS): I swear if Tim Tebow can keep up with Tom Brady, and Denver (8-5) finds a way to win this game against the Patriots (10-3). There's a god. Prediction: Patriots 30, Denver 20.
Eagles (-3) vs. Jets (4:15 p.m. on CBS): Now, I am not buying into New York just yet, but I do know that they're better than Philadelphia (5-8), which for some reason is the favorite over the Jets (8-5). Prediction: Jets 27, Eagles 24.
Last Week: 3-2-0. Overall: 33-29-2.
