WABillsfan's Pick Justifications:

Falcons- The other team reeks like week old meat, the Falcons win.

Cowboys- The Bucs are well done, so the fork is sticking in them pretty badly, all the Cowboys need to do now is twist it.

Panthers- Houston has clinched, and they need a rest on both sides of the ball, I think they lose this one.

Bills- Otherwise, when else will we win a game? They fired their coach, so that means Gailey has a chance to.... wait, I am now making myself think the Dolphins will win, nope, sticking to my guns, Bills win.

Giants- The D has finally woken up and gotten healthy and the "Elite" Eli has shown up.

Packers- Haven't mis-picked them all season, why start now? Anyhow, mentally tough teams like them do NOT have down games against bad competition.

Seahawks- To beat the Hawks, you gotta be able to pass, and the Bears can't do that without Forte AND Cutler. Red Bryant (a guy both Brian and I screamed the Bills should have drafted some years ago) has anchored a tough run D.

Titans- Because the other team is the Dolts.

Bengals- They make amends for last week and blast the Rams.

Saints- Indoors at this time of year? Easy pick, against the Vikings? Even easier pick.

Raiders- I just have a gut feeling that the Raiders suck it up this week.

Eagles- They are playing for Andy Reids coaching life, and the guys actually still seem to like him, so I think they keep him from Death's Door one more week.

Browns- Why? I don't really know, maybe becuase I lived near Cleveland for 4 years in college (GO YEOMEN!)

Patriots- Tebow and Broncos win with grit, determiniation, and tough football all around. The only problem is that the Patriots win by blowing you out. In a game of QBs who just win, I am siding with the guy who has done it longer.

Ravens- Chargers have gone a win streak against sub-par competition, the Ravens are not a sub-par team, they win.

49ers- This is going to be a great game for anyone who truly loves defensive football games and ones where the stretcher is brought out at least twice a quarter. Big Ben nearly swayed me to the Steelers, but their line is so patchwork, I do not think Ben escapes upright this week. The 49ers are looking to make a statement after last week and the loss to the Ravens.

Ron's Pick Justifications:

Atlanta: The Jags' heads swelled so much in their win over the dreadful Bucs that they'll have trouble getting their helmets on.

Cowboys: Yes, Romo is erratic in December...but Tampa is terrible and playing on a national stage (Saturday game) won't help.

Bengals: How did the Rams get on Monday night? They're just awful and the Bengals will be looking to avenge last Sunday's improbable comeback win by the Texans.

Texans: Maybe Buffalo should have drafted Yates. Okay, that's a bit over the top as Houston has a top-flight defense and a commitment to running the ball.

Bears: It was amazing to see Marion Barber commit one stupid mistake after another to let Tebow win again.

Colts: Yeah, I said it. Indy can afford to get one win and still claim Andrew Luck. This is the best shot at it.

Giants: The Redskins gave the Patriots all they could handle, somehow. Don't look for that intensity and competence to continue two weeks in a row out of Rex Grossman.

Packers: Have I mentioned that I hope the Packers go 19-0 just so they can call Robert Kraft and ask for the rights to that copyright they don't need?

Bills: Miami just fired the head coach. I'm leery of taking Buffalo but am hoping (yeah, me) that the Bills can survive the post head coach firing (dead cat) bounce.

Saints: It's and indoor game and Drew Brees excels indoors. Also, this helps Green Bay and that perfect season thing--possibly routing San Fran through New Orleans.

Lions: Oakland has reverted to form the past couple of weeks and the Lions will help them remain consistent.

Cardinals: Look who is riding a 2 game win streak!

Patriots: Denver won't be holding Tom Brady to 13 points. It think this will be a very strange shootout, with slow Denver drives and quick New England TDs.

Eagles: Yeah, the Jets are the better team....but Philly has some fight left in it.

Ravens: Phillip Rivers is something like 23-2 in December. Part of that success is getting to play crappy AFC West teams at the end of the season for several years. Baltimore isn't in the AFC West.

49ers: The Steelers are vulnerable and the 49ers will be looking to avenge a flat outing in week 14.

Kurupt's Pick Justifications:

Atlanta - Jacksonville stinks, outside of MoJo.

Bucs- Because why not? Romo's late season struggles continue. Coach Ginger's hot seat intensifies.

Dolphins

Seahawks

Panthers

Titans

Packers

Saints

Giants

Bengals

Lions

Browns

Patriots

Eagles

Chargers

Steelers

Krytime's Pick Justifications:

ATL - Still think they're overrated, but somehow they've won enough to be tied for 8th overall in the league. That should be good enough to beat what I think is a lousy JAX team.

Dallas- and only because I need to root for Dez Bryant..

Buffalo - Just hoping for a little early Xmas

NY Giants - I'm sort of struggling to figure out how they're not better than their record.

Green Bay - Does anyone really need an explanation here? Actually can't believe the line is what it is. Should be at -20.

New Orleans - These guys are just on fire. How can you pick against them?

Seattle - These guys are on fire too? Say it ain't so, but it is. 4-1 last five.

Houston - Picking against my Carolina pals, again...

Tennessee - This could be a week Indy sneaks one in, but probably not.

Cincinnati - I wish I had Cedric Benson on my FF team this week.

Detroit - Was tempted to go Oak; this should be a good game to watch.

New England - Sorry God.

NY Jets - I hate both of these cities/teams. Wish I didn't have to pick.

Arizona - Seattle-ish in their play the last five weeks.

Baltimore - Go Ray Rice! (guess who has him in FF playoff match-up?)

Pit - Absolutely can't wait to watch this game.

Joe P.'s Pick Justifications:

Falcon - They are at home and still in the hunt.

Cowboys- The Bucs have packed it in

Fins - Bills can't stop the pass or the run

Hawks - Bears don-t have a QB or RB

Titans - Colts continue to suck for Luck

Packers - Trap game- Maybe, but I am still going with the Packers

Bengals - They got robbed last week. I think they take it out on the Rams

Saints - Vikes find a way to lose every week.

Giants - It is about time for the bad Rex to show up

Texans - Another playoff team at home

Raiders - Need to stay within striking distance of the Broncos

Broncos - TEBOW TEBOW TEBOW-..sure it is a long shot, but I would love to see what the talking heads say if Tebow beats the greatBellicheat

Jets - Eagles are thinking more about Christmas shopping than winning games

Cards - Remember when I said the Bills should draft Skelton?

Chargers - Getting healthy to late, but still looking for some respect

Niners - Steelers have to travel and have a beat up Oline and QB

Poz's Pick Justifications:

Atlanta - Jacksonville can't matchup with all of their weapons.

Dallas - will make up for that stinger to the Giants

Buffalo - With a new coach the Dolphins flounder (see that?)

Chicago - I can't believe Sam Hurd was the largest drug kingpin in Chicago....

Carolina - Cam Newton has an enormous day and runs all over the Texans

Tennessee - Is it Jake's debut? Either way, Indy can't stop a nosebleed

Packers - Tempted to take the Chiefs in Arrowhead but this matchup is too lopsided on both sides of the ball

Minnesota - I have picked this team too many times but they WILL surprise this week

Giants - getting back in the playoff race, Eli is picking it up.

Cincinnati - this offense is very good and the defense is very good and the Rams are awful.

Oakland - Carson Palmer has to get back on the tracks sometime, what better time than now?

Cleveland - Another team I pick to many times but they got the Cards this week, right??

New England - Love Tebow, believe the "intangibles" theory is real, but also believe Tom Brady is real.

Eagles - The Jets are not going to make the playoffs, I must believe this.,

Baltimore - Chargers learn not everyone is the Bills

Pittsburgh - Ben plays and his "heroic" effort is enough to pump up his team into slaughtering Alex Smith.

Silverstreak's Pick Justifications:

Falcons - Jags are not what they were last week, but it does prove my theory that Tampa is terribly over-hyped

Dallas - see above.

Texans - dont ask me how, but those texans just keep on winning.

Giants - im still believing the Giants make the post season and possibly make the nfc champ game

Dolphins - is there a worse team in the nfl besides the bills? i dont think so, and i think the dolphins have found a grove despite their loss and the firing

Bears - i love marshawn, but da bears are due for a win and need this one to stay alive for a post season push

Saints - vikings are so lost right now its not even funny

Bengals - if they cant beat the seachickens with an extra day who thinks they will solve cincy's defense with one less day?

Titans - their defense is tough, just ask NO, indy doesnt score more than 10 in this one and that seals it for cj and locker

Packers - really? playing a bad team without a head coach? easy pick

Lions - oak is fading fast, faster than i thought they would.

Broncos - a pick that im not sure is smart, but i do love me some tebow, and ill pick him over new england any day just for spite.

Eagles - in a shocker, the eagles come in and dash the hope of a playoff berth for the jets

Cardinals - because the other team is cleveland

Ravens - chargers are not as good as the bills (and fitzy) made them look, ravens steamroll them

49ers - ticky game, i give it to the 49ers because its at home and in primetime. if this is a day game, then i go steelers, but i think the 49ers will use that extra emotion and pull this one out.
