I slayed it last week, going 13-3. This puts me at 102-73-2 for the year. On to week 13 as this season continues to fly by.
Kansas City Chiefs (8-3) at Atlanta Falcons (7-4)
(-3.5) (0/U 49.0)
Two really good teams face off in this one, but I think the Falcons are going to go on a run.
Detroit Lions (7-4) at New Orleans Saints (5-6)
(-6.0) (O/U 53.5)
Detroit took sole possession of first place in the NFC North last week after a Thanksgiving win against the Vikings, but all 7 of their wins this season have been because of fourth quarter comebacks. Their luck is bound to run out soon. Not to mention the Lions have a long history of choking late in the season.
Pick: Saints Los Angeles Rams (4-7) at New England Cheaters (9-2)
(-13.5) (O/U 44.5)
A week 8 record of 7-7 puts me at 67-52 for the year.
Damn! the regular season is officially half over already. Week 9 here I come.
Team byes: Arizona Cardinals, Baltimore Ravens, Detroit Lions, Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks
Jacksonville Jaguars (2-5) at New York Jets (4-3) Line: NYJ -9.0 O/U: 40
New York suffered a surprising loss to Oakland last week. A team with one of the best defenses in the NFL got shredded by Derek Carr and company, but what better way to bounce back than to play a home game against the lowly Jaguars?
The AFC South, which includes the Houston Texans, Tennessee Titans, Indianapolis Colts, and Jacksonville Jaguars.
Houston bounced back in a big way from it’s 2-14 by going 9-7 in 2014.
J.J Watt dominated once again, and did it with a smile on his face.
Aside from recording 20.5 sacks, (second only to Justin Houston‘s 22), he had 4 forced fumbles, and led the league with 140 yards lost on sack. He also had 2 defensive TD’s (One from an interception and one from a fumble) and 3 receiving TD’s as the Texans would put him on offense in red zone opportunities. No surprise Watt was not only chosen unanimously as a a first team all pro, but unanimously chosen as A.P defensive player of the year, which had never happened before.
NFL final four is here. Nothing like it. Win and it’s on to the SuperBowl. 3-1 last week but only 2 games this week. Will it be a Colts-Seahawks Super Bowl as I predicted at the beginning of the year? We will know Sunday night.
3 quarters of the NFL teams have been eliminated from the field, leaving us with 8 remaining teams. Was 2-2 in my Wildcard picks last week. I had a feeling that a 6 seed was going to win but I picked the wrong one. On to the Divisional round.
LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, BOYS AND GIRLS IT’S NFL PLAYOFF TIME! Last week I racked up a 9-7 record in My NFL picks and finished the regular season year with a 139-86-1 record. I plan on a much better regular season record next year. It’s a new year now as the playoffs have officially started. So let’s pick some playoff games.

Looking at Hawk’s Quarter Season-ish Power Rankings from back in October, CLICK HERE to see that, its crazy how much has changed. For instance he had the Chargers at number one, Eagles number four (see where they are now). But, for the reality of the current situation, here’s who Hawk (who in September correctly predicted the 49ers would miss the playoffs) sees as the pecking order heading into the playoffs:
1) Seattle Seahawks (12-4)
Hard to believe that this team was 3-3 to start the season and barely escaped falling to 3-4 in Carolina. Seattle has now rattled off 6 straight dominating wins to go to 12-4 and secure the #1 seed in the NFC. During that 6 game stretch their opponents are averaging under 7 points. The road to the Super Bowl once again goes through Seattle, a daunting task for anyone.
