Colts @ Lions-Patriots @ Dolphins-Jaguars @ Bills Week 13 Free Picks
December 1, 2012 by luckylester
Another winner in Week 12, and here comes lucky number 13. Yes, my long time followers, obviously traveling with me for many years now, remember a certain undefeated week years ago. Shall we have a repeat? Chances are nil as I trusted Drew Brees and his Saints too much this Thursday, but 15 of 15 on the weekend games would be grand.
This is the week the Jaguars stop playing decent football, I’m almost sure of it. They’ve been battling for weeks now, and that’s just unlike them. I know that they no longer have a handicap at quarterback, and receivers are starting to get open, shoot, even their defense is playing alright – but that honeymoon period of “This new guy gives us a chance to win,” is basically over, thus reintroducing us to the real Jaguars. I’ll give the points and say the Jags fall down on the road.
The Patriots start falling back a little bit here, but do they play a tight one with a rookie QB in Miami? Nan. Tom Brady is NBA Jam “On fire” right now, peddling that pigskin like he needs to prove to just one more schmuck that there’s a difference between him and everyone else – he always wins. Gronk out? No big deal. Welker dinged up, no problem. Defense giving up points, that’s okay, he’ll throw missiles into tight spots and tell you about it. Patriots win by more than a touchdown, here.
Alright, I throw in the blue and white towel, I’ll stop betting on the Colts to show us who they really are. Apparently this “Play for Chuckstrong” thing isn’t going to slow down after all. The Lions are very beatable at home, as Indy should be able to keep big plays to a minimum. One of these teams is disciplined, one is not. I’ll take Indy.
