Denver Broncos at Pittsburgh Steelers (-5.5)
This should be very enjoyable. Pittsburgh (8-5) is on an absolute roll and Denver (10-3) has no ability to score. The Broncos are wavering whether Brock Osweiler and Peyton Manning will start, which is like shuffling deckchairs on the Titanic. Eat it, Denver.
Pick: Pittsburgh 23, Denver 9
Miami Dolphins at San Diego Chargers (NO LINE)
This is just sad.
Pick: San Diego 20, Miami 19
Cincinnati Bengals (-4) at San Francisco 49ers
The only question that needs to be answered is whether A.J. McCarron can play football at a decent level. If he can, Cincinnati (10-3) pounds on San Francisco (4-9) and moves one step closer to an AFC North title.
Pick: Cincinnati 17, San Francisco 14
Arizona Cardinals (-3.5) at Philadelphia Eagles
Arizona (11-2) is one of the best teams in the league, if not the best. Philadelphia (6-7) is trying to win the NFC East, but probably won’t because it is poorly coached and has a middling quarterback. Oh, and the secondary is atrocious. Other than that, it’s all good.
Pick: Arizona 34, Philadelphia 23
Detroit Lions at New Orleans Saints (-4)
Thanks for this crapfest, ESPN!
Pick: New Orleans 31, Detroit 27
Last Week: 10-5
