I know, I've been slacking this week. I missed my recap post, and now I'm posting picks on the day of the games. But they're up before kickoff, which is all that matters. We have some big games this week as we near the end of the regular season. Let's see how we do!

Bengals @ Browns

I'm not a huge Manziel fan, but I believe in him more than I do in Andy Dalton on the road in December.

I don’t watch NCAAF, so I don’t know anything about how Johnny Football played in college. I don’t care. This is the NFL. Let’s wait and see how he plays in the big leagues. I do know this. He is such a little prick. If he weren’t good at football, someone woulda beat the shit out of him by now. I hope he fails, and spectacularly. He probably won’t, though, because he is playing against the Bengals. Ugh. Why? Why couldn’t he play against the Seahawks or, better yet, Ndamukong Suh? Oh, yes, that is my fantasy. That little shit against the Lions defense. Also, this.

You all know what I am going to say here. My Boy is taking the Browns to the playoffs!!!! OK, well, probably not the playoffs, but they'll beat the Bengals. <3 Johnny Always <3

My opinion on Johnny Football is absolutely zero. I'm just pissed after getting burned by the Bengals last week.

This was a harder decision than any AFC North decision should ever be for me. On the one hand, dear god I hate Johnny Football and want him to fail. On the other hand, I think it helps my dad's Steelers more if the Browns win. Although, seriously, this conference is so close that math fails me and I can't process.

Broncos @ Chargers

Even this late in the season, I don't know what the Chargers are. Whatever they are, I don't think it's good enough to beat Denver.

I hate Rivers. I love Peyton. There is not one person on the Chargers team I would root for — I’ve tried. I have a reason to be invested. I just … I can’t.
Jackie

I expect all of the scores in this game. I still like the Broncos despite the Chargers at home. Peyton bounces back from a terrible game now that he is in sunny SoCal.

I swapped in this game at the last minute, so we wouldn't have to pick a Jets/Titans trash bowl. I don't know why I thought someone might give it to San Diego, but that someone certainly won't be me.

True story: in both my fantasy teams, the teams with Peyton Manning didn't make the playoffs. Therefore, I can let my heart lead this pick. Peyton FOREVA.

Cowboys @ Eagles

Pick Sideline Commentary
Allen

Romo in Philly in December? Nope.
Madeline
32-24-1
Eagles at home.
Jackie
31-25-1
Broken Romo or Butt Fumble? This is a hostile environment and I am hoping for snow. I love both my girls Keeds and LSum, but this is football and I will never like the Boys.

1. Jackie is a liar because she DID pick the Cowboys when these two teams played on Thanksgiving. (It's okay, I love you anyway.)
2. I am very nervous that everyone (except LSum, understandably) has picked the Eagles for this game because that kind of confidence is how your team gets jinxed.
3. BAHHHHHH I hate playing the Cowboys in December. Too much on the line. The silver lining of this game is that it's being played in Week 15, so there won't be a repeat of the end of the 2009 season, i.e. back-to-back losses to the Cowboys in Week 17 and the Wild Card round. It still stings. GO EAGLES!!

I have a lot to say about this one, but first of all, PLEASE STOP MAKING ME PICK COWBOYS GAMES. Here are the reasons why the Boys will win:
1. Undefeated on the road. Granted, that statistic makes no sense and it's the best statistic for my team, but it's true.
2. My Cowboys lucky charm is coming back to 'Murica soon and all will be right with the world and the NFL.
3. I have an ugly sweater party on Tuesday and the only ugly sweater I own is a Cowboys one (and of course I have a matching Santa hat). I'd rather not look like an idiot and would rather stroll into the party all "I thought this was an NFC East Championship Party?!" Suckers.
4. I deserve to be happy. DID YOU HEAR THAT, TONY?

Saints @ Bears

Pick Sideline Commentary

Two teams that really should be good, but are awful instead. Bears at home, though if money were involved, I would run far away from this game. As a TV viewer, I will also run far away from this game.
Madeline
32-24-1
Jeez, these two poor fucking teams. Saints have lost every single game at home, so they at least have that going for them. Saints are tied with the Falcons for first. They have something to play for. The Bears can’t stop the locker room chatter and backstabbing. I hate to say it, but Saints.
Jackie
31-25-1
I just do not hate Cutler as much as everyone else mostly because I monitor his fantasy performance and instead of his game one. Also, this is a little tricky because the crappy Saints still have something to fight for. It should be interesting.
Makeda

I was in New Orleans last weekend. I was at the Panthers/Saints game. I sat through the whole thing. It was ATROCIOUS. And yet...I think they bounce back. (That or I don't have it in my heart to pick against them unless it impacts my team. One of the two.)
Lauren
19-37-1
I don't know what's going on with my boy Drew lately, but my heart's always with him. Geaux Saints!
