Sunday, December 16th, 2012
1:00 PM EST
Giants @ Falcons -1.5
Big blue looms giant,
Falcons don’t really impress,
Yet do just enough.
Packers @ Bears +2.5
Pack finding their form,
As ursine rivals unravel,
Cutler wears a scowl.
Redskins @ Browns -1.5
‘Skins won last four straight,
Whole East and B-more to boot,
Now Cleveland is next.
Vikings @ Rams +2.5
What’s that sound coming?
Is it the Rams thundering D?
Nope, it’s AP and his bionic knee
Jaguars @ Dolphins -7.5
With Tannehill regressing,
Can’t trust Fins against anyone,
No, not even Jax.
Buccaneers @ Saints -3.5
Brees and Saints disappoint,
Bucs are the team on the rise,
Muscle Hamster runs amok.
Broncos @ Ravens +2.5
First Batch then Cousins,
Ravens torched by backup QBs,
Peyton stands behind no man.
Colts @ Texans -7.5
Colts are great story,
But Houston has been running,
Running over teams all year.
4:05 PM EST
Seahawks vs. Bills +5.5
On a neutral field,
Will home or away ‘Hawks show?
Bills cast away, “Wilson!”
Lions @ Cardinals +5.5
Can the Cards season,
Get more abysmal even still?
Final answer, yes.
Panthers @ Chargers -2.5
Despite beating Pitt,
Can’t trust a Norv team down stretch,
Bolts blow it, as usual.
4:25 PM EST
Steelers @ Cowboys +1.5
Boys score points by bunch,
Steelers have topped 30 just once,
Home team lights up JerryLand.
Chiefs @ Raiders -2.5
Both teams are putrid,
But KC can run the ball,
What does Oakland do well?
8:20 PM EST
49ers @ Patriots -5.5
 Niners are tough test,
But NE has no gold to mine,
Brady finds a way.
Monday, December 17th, 2012
8:30 PM EST
Jets @ Titans -1.5
Titans up and down,
But find ways to generate points,
The Jets usually don’t.

This Week: 1-0
Last Week: 6-10
Season: 108-101
