I’m still full from Thanksgiving and legitimately can’t believe the Giants are 8-3, so this week we’re going straight to the picks!

LAST WEEK: 8-7

SEASON: 86-84-5


Dallas Cowboys (-3) at Minnesota Vikings (Thursday, 8:25 p.m. ET)

Going to keep taking the Cowboys until they lose a game.

The pick: Cowboys -3


Denver Broncos (-4.5) at Jacksonville Jaguars (Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET)

I’m absolutely going to jinx myself here, but there’s just no way the Broncos lose this.

The pick: Broncos -4.5


Kansas City Chiefs (+4) at Atlanta Falcons (Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET)

Two good teams with completely opposite identities. The Chiefs have a scary defense and a somewhat underwhelming offense. The Falcons have one of the best offenses and worst defenses. I like the Chiefs to keep this one close, if only because they’re a little more even on both sides of the ball.

The pick: Chiefs +4


Houston Texans (+6.5) at Green Bay Packers (Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET)

Brock Osweiler is now leading the NFL … in interceptions. 13 picks compared to 12 touchdowns? Not great!

The pick: Packers -6.5


Philadelphia Eagles (+1) at Cincinnati Bengals (Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET)

The Eagles are now below .500 and yet I still like them more than the Bengals here.

The pick: Eagles -1


Detroit Lions (+6) at New Orleans Saints (Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET)

The pick: Saints -6


San Francisco 49ers (+1.5) at Chicago Bears (Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET)

Game of the week!

The pick: Bears -1.5


Los Angeles Rams (+13.5) at New England Patriots (Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET)

Good stat here:

The pick: Patriots -13.5


Miami Dolphins (+3) at Baltimore Ravens (Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET)

The Dolphins are beating up on bad teams, so let’s see what they’ve got against a solid Ravens squad.

The pick: Ravens -3


Buffalo Bills (+3.5) at Oakland Raiders (Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ET)

Derek Carr for MVP!

The pick: Raiders -3.5


Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+3.5) at San Diego Chargers (Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET)

Mike Evans and Jameis Winston are really fun!

The pick: Buccaneers -3.5


Washington Redskins (+2.5) at Arizona Cardinals (Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET)

Why on earth are the Cardinals favored in this one? Even without Jordan Reed I like Washington here.

The pick: Washington +2.5


New York Giants (+6) at Pittsburgh Steelers (Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET)

source
Ron Schwane/AP

Here’s some basic math: the Giants beat the Cowboys, who beat the Packers. According to a little something called the transitive property, the G-Men win this one!

The pick: Giants +6


Carolina Panthers (+7) at Seattle Seahawks (Sunday, 8:30 p.m. ET)

source
Tony Avelar/AP

The Panthers are 4-7, extremely underwhelming, almost certainly will miss the playoffs … and yet I can’t shake the feeling that they either win this one or keep it very close.

The pick: Panthers +7


Indianapolis Colts (-2.5) at New York Jets (Monday, 8:30 p.m. ET)

source

Tickets for this game are going for as little as $6 on StubHub! That’s half the price of a beer!

The pick: Jets +2.5
