Totally Biased NFL Picks: Week 14

I would like to personally welcome you all to the first installment of the Kris Kauffman Experience: NFL Picks Week 14. Week 13 is in the books and several things continue rolling: the Packers continue to decimate the most average of defenses, the Patriots continue to cruise to the finish, and Travis lost. Again. After making some (clearly) drunken and bold predictions, Travis has relinquished his lead in the season standings for our picks. I have to give credit where credit is due, however, and admittedly tell you all that Travis does an outstanding job of designing our weekly picks article. And for that we are all thankful. Aaand that’s it. That’s all I’m giving him credit for cuz… well… he lost. Again.

Okay, now onto the things that matter. Week 13 brought us plenty of exciting contests, from the nail-biters of Denver vs Minnesota all the way to Green Bay vs New York Giants and to the defensive slugfest of Atlanta vs Houston. Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos continue their impressive run to the top of the AFC West Division with another thriller against the Vikings, where Tebow had his best offensive output of the season thus far. Tebow is now 6-1 as a starting QB and continues to silence the media and the “haters” week-in and week-out. Green Bay, once again, found a way to win late against the Giants on the shoulders of Aaron Rodgers, handily winning the game 35-32. Houston’s #1 ranked defense remains a force to be reckoned with in the AFC after halting the Atlanta Falcons, where the team was led to victory by “just enough” quarterbacking from TJ Yates.

Totally Biased’s “Lock of the Week” for last week proved itself as unbeatable again with the easy choice of San Fransisco over St.Louis, in a 26-0 shutout. This week, we won’t be so lucky, with a bunch of great match-ups like Houston @ the Bengals, as Cincinnati will try to keep their season afloat and their eyes on the Playoffs against a Houston team that, despite the league’s top-ranked defense, is without their starting QB Matt Schaub. The Broncos will host the Chicago Bears on Sunday, and in an interesting dynamic, it seems that both teams are headed in opposite directions. Chicago seems to be slipping away from it’s playoffs chances without the help of Jay Cutlerand with Matt Forte’s untimely injury, whereas Denver looks to be headed towards a miraculous playoff berth with the help of the rising star, Tim Tebow. We here at Totally Biased are all Tebow fans, and for good reason, as he continues to help his team find ways to overcome odds and win. Well, everyone but Travis likes him. But what does he know? His team’s QB drools on himself.

Season Standings

Kris: 64 – 37

Travis: 63 – 38

Lock of the Week: 7 -1


Cleveland Browns @ Pittsburgh Steelers

Travis: Pittsburgh Steelers
Kris: Pittsburgh Steelers

Travis: The Browns have a very minimal chance of ousting the Steelers, especially since they’re on the road. Even with Big Ben’s injured finger, it shouldn’t be very hard for the Steelers defense to shut down Colt McCoy and Peyton Hillis.

New England Patriots @ Washington Redskins

Travis: New England Patriots
Kris: New England Patriots

Kris: Brady and the bunch head to the nation’s capitol to take on one of the league’s most prolific QBs, Rex Grossman. The Patriots have given up the most passing yards in the league to some of the worst quarterbacks. Chad Henne, Dan Orlovsky, Tyler Palko and even Eli Manning, just to name a few. The Pats need to finish strong against the Redskins and get primed for their playoff run if they want to contend in the postseason.

Kansas City Chiefs @ New York Jets

Travis: New York Jets
Kris: New York Jets

Travis: The Chiefs have been killed by injuries, and could have had a promising season this year if they hadn’t been so unfortunate to lose Matt Cassel and Jamaal Charles. That being said, the Jets are desperately trying to squeak into the playoffs, and a win over the Chiefs could do wonders if Baltimore or Houston falters this week. I have Gang Green winning handedly.

Houston Texans @ Cincinnati Bengals

Travis: Cincinnati Bengals
Kris: Houston Texans

Kris: The 7-5 Bengals host the AFC South leading Texans on Sunday which is set to be one of this week’s best contests. Houston and it’s stout defense are coming off of a huge 17-10 victory over the uprising Falcons last week. Cincinnati has been in a slump as of late and needs the win in order to stay in the hunt for the Wild Card. If the Bengals can slow Houston’s offense then I think they could pull off the upset, but we don’t deal in “ifs” here at Totally Biased, so I see this game going the Texans’ way.

Indianapolis Colts @ Baltimore Ravens

Travis: Baltimore Ravens
Kris: Baltimore Ravens

Trav: This is all I have to say. We here at Totally Biased swore we would never take Baltimore again in a Lock of The Week, and we won’t. Although, if Indy gets their first win here, then Kris and I are making a suicide pact.

Atlanta Falcons @ Carolina Panthers

Travis: Atlanta Falcons
Kris: Atlanta Falcons

Kris: Cam Newton and the Panthers throttled the Bucs last week for Newton’s fourth win as a starter and the team continues to make improvements towards rebuilding the ball club. That being said, the Falcons need to get a win over this “rebuilding” team in order to rein in their playoff spot. I think the Falcons will pull off the win and bully their way past the Panthers, improving to 8-5 in the process.

New Orleans Saints @ Tennessee Titans

Travis: New Orleans Saints
New Orleans Saints

Kris: If, at first glance, this game looks like a complete, total no-brainer, that’s because it is. New Orleans’ offense is the best in the league and Tennessee isn’t going to stop them. Saints bulldoze the Titans.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Jacksonville Jaguars

Travis: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Kris: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Travis: I, honestly, feel bad for fans of either team. Horrible matchup, and anyone who watches and enjoys this game is no friend of mine.

Philadelphia Eagles @ Miami Dolphins

Travis: Philadelphia Eagles
Kris: Miami Dolphins

Travis: I continue to take the Eagles, they continue to lose. So, fuck it, why not? Vick is finally back and I think they can edge Miami in a close one. Call it a hunch, but I think this is the game that DeSean Jackson breaks out, again, in.

Minnesota Vikings @ Detroit Lions

Travis: Detroit Lions
Kris: Detroit Lions

Kris: Minnesota put up 32 points on a pretty decent Broncos defense last week and needs to have the same output against another good defense in the Detroit Lions. I don’t think the Vikings have enough to beat the Lions, and even though the team’s collapsed (starting with Suh’s antics and off-the-field media attention) in the limelight lately, they still have a shot at the playoffs. Lions will maul the Vikes.

San Fransisco 49’ers @ Arizona Cardinals

Travis: San Francisco 49’ers
Kris: San Francisco 49’ers

Travis: Shitty NFC West Matchup: Round 2!

Chicago Bears @ Denver Broncos

Travis: Chicago Bears
Kris: Denver Broncos

Kris: Tim Tebow.

Oakland Raiders @ Green Bay Packers

Travis: Green Bay Packers
Kris: Green Bay Packers

Travis: The Packers are well on their way to completing a perfect season, and I expect the Raiders to be another team that bites the dust. McFadden is still out, and Rodgers is still lighting the scoreboard up. The Pack should roll this week. And if it matters, I see them going all the way this year.

Buffalo Bills @ San Diego Chargers

Travis: San Diego Chargers
Kris: San Diego Chargers

Kris: Both teams, who were once promising at the beginning of the season, are now on the outside looking in on the playoff races. Both the Bills and Chargers have great offenses but can’t finish games. That being said, I think the Chargers will win based on their record at home and Buffalo’s awful road record at 1-5.

New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys 

Travis: New York Giants
Kris: New York Giants

Travis: I may be biased but I’m not an id-Wait! We can win this one!? The Giants, following a close defeat to the Packers that involved horrible call after horrible call, the G-Men get Dallas on the road. A victory here is crucial for the Giants season. They can easily win out, and end up at 10-6, with a decent shot to make a playoff run. Giants in a very close game.

St. Louis Rams @ Seattle Seahawks

Travis: St. Louis Rams
Kris: Seattle Seahawks

Kris: With Seattle’s Marshawn Lynch in Beast Mode there is, literally, NO reason to ever… ever… EVER!!! pick St. Louis. Seahawks win!
