If you know me, you know that I’m a big Raiders fan. Thinking about it in terms of a confidence pool, this Raiders team has to be the worst team for a confidence pool!
Yes the Raiders are very unexpectedly 9-2 and towards the top of most power rankings out there. But they haven’t had too many wins that make you that confident about them in the next game.
It’s an anomaly for sure. But hey, like the old man said, JUST WIN BABY!
Week 13 – HERE WE GO!!!!!!!!!
(HOME TEAM IN ALL CAPS)
15 – NEW ENGLAND over Los Angeles – Welcome to the NFL Jared Goff! Now go play the Patriots.
14 – Dallas over MINNESOTA – If the Cowboys are going to lose on the road, it won’t be against a depleted Viking team.
13 – OAKLAND over Buffalo – If you have a legitimate argument as to why Derek Carr is NOT the MVP this season I would love to hear it.
12 – GREEN BAY over Houston – The Pack is back! My BOLD PREDICTION is that THE PACKERS WILL COME BACK AND WIN THE NFC NORTH.
11 – NEW ORLEANS over Detroit – Detroit has had a better than expected year but I don’t see them outscoring the Saints offense.
10 – SEATTLE over Carolina – After the embarrassment of only putting up 5 points in Tampa last week, Seattle will have something to prove.
9 – PITTSBURGH over New York Giants – The Steelers will need this playoff level win to get them ready for a playoff push.
8 – ARIZONA over Washington – I honestly don’t know why the Redskins are a winning team.
7 – Denver over JACKSONVILLE – In the off-season, this was supposed to be a good game. Then the Jags happened.
6 – Indianapolis over NEW YORK JETS – If Andrew Luck doesn’t play in this one, put the Jets on a very low number line.
5 – CINCINNATI over Philadelphia – Andy Dalton meets his will be unsuccessful ginger understudy.
4 – BALTIMORE over Miami – Surprisingly this is a big game in the AFC playoff picture. The home team gets the nod on this one.
3 – ATLANTA over Kansas City – We all know my track record on Falcons games.
2 – Tampa Bay over SAN DIEGO – After dominating Seattle last week, Tampa looks determined to sneak into the playoffs.
1 – San Francisco over CHICAGO – Fear not, Bears fans. A loss hear clears the way to the second pick in the draft!
