Hognostications Week 14

Chicago at Washington
How's this for hognosticating? The Washington Redskins win despite Jason Campbell going down with a dislocated knee and an all-time Gibbs' low rushing effort of 31 yards in a win. Shawn Springs, although not expected to play, steps up with two big-time picks, and Todd Collins is outstanding in relief of Campbell.
Pick ~ Redskins
Carolina at Jacksonville
The Jags need this game to stay one game up on Titans for second place in the AFC South.
Pick ~ Jaguars
Dallas at Detroit
Just another second half collapse by the Lions. They'll be lucky to finish 7~9, if they can win at home in week 16 against the spiraling Chiefs. Unfortunately, expect the Pukes to come into FedEx at 14~1.
Pick ~ Pukes
Miami at Buffalo
The Bills are a decent team and have proven as much after starting the season 1~4. They need this win to stay in the AFC wildcard chase. It would be nice to see the Dolphins go winless after so many years of the champagne popping when undefeated teams have lost.
Pick ~ Bills
New York Giants at Philadelphia
The Giants have won three of the last four. If Westbrook doesn't play, expect McNabb to have another long day in his return.
Pick ~ Giants
Oakland at Green Bay
Favre's 250th consecutive regular season start. That is incredible! The Raiders have won two in a row, playing better as of late, but aren't going to like Lambeau in December.
Pick ~ Packers
Pittsburgh at New England
This match up of two of the AFC’s division leaders will be one that none of us will want to miss. Still can't get over the Steeler's losing to the Jets. The Steelers will surely miss Troy Polamula, if he can't go.
Pick ~ Patriots
San Diego at Tennessee
This is a tough pick, but feel like the Titans need the win more than the Chargers. Tennessee is trying to stay in the race for a wildcard spot, while San Diego can drop this game and still hold at least a one game lead in their division over the Broncos. Fool's logic?
Pick ~ Titans
St. Louis at Cincinnati
Amazingly, neither of these teams, Rams (3~9) and Bengals (4~8), has been eliminated from the post-season. Who knows how this game will play out? Taking the home team.
Pick ~ Cincinnati
Tampa Bay at Houston
The Texans are 0~6 this season against teams currently over .500. Add to that Sage Rosenfels, although he's play admirably, will start for the injured Matt Schaub against Tampa’s much-improved defense.
Pick ~ Tampa Bay
Arizona at Seattle
The Cardinals won the first meeting of these division rivals on a last-second field goal in week 2. Both teams have played well as of late, but like the Seahawks at home, where they are 5~1 on the season.
Pick ~ Seattle
Minnesota at San Francisco
Adrian Peterson was outstanding last week in his return from a knee sprain, while wearing a knee brace no less. Look for him to have another huge day against the 49ers who are 1~4 at home this season and have struggled defensively against the run. As much as we'd like the 49ers to win this game, can't see it happening.
Pick ~ Minnesota
Cleveland at New York Jets
The Jets are lousy and fortunate to have had played the Dolphins twice already this season. Surprisingly, their only other win came against the Steelers in week 11. Eric Mangini can't be real comfortable these days.
Pick ~ Cleveland
Kansas City at Denver
The Broncos won easily at KC in week 10 and need to win out just to have a shot at a wildcard spot.
Pick ~ Broncos
Indianapolis at Baltimore
The Raven fans have got to feel like they need an offense after facing the Browns, Chargers, Patriots and now Colts in consecutive weeks. They'll get a break next week, when they face the Dolphins.
Pick ~ Colts
New Orleans at Atlanta
The Saints have won the last three match-ups, including a 22-16 win in week 7. This is a must win for the Saints playoff chances. Hopefully, Chris Redman can lead the Falcons to an upset, but can't see it.
Pick ~ Saints
