The Colts beat Jacksonville in a shootout. They have now clinched home-field advantage throughout the playoffs in the AFC Conference. The Saints look to do the same in the NFC against the Cowboys. LB DeMarcus Ware is listed as questionable for tonight’s game (sprained neck). With Jacksonville losing, this opens an opportunity for the Ravens, Jets, and/or Dolphins to overtake that spot.

Here are all of my picks for Week 15. The teams that are NOT crossed out are my picks. The s.o. stands for shutout, and the * stand for upset. Both logos will be next to the TV stations:

Here’s the game on everyone’s minds.

Game of the Week:

The Giants and Redskins opened up the season against each other, with the Giants winning that exchange. This time, the script is completely different. The Giants, still a possible playoff team, has been all offense and no defense. The Redskins, out of the playoff hunt, are playing better football with tough losses to New Orleans and Philadelphia. Every game seems to be their “Super Bowl” for them, and they want to win for pride. The Giants still need to solve their defensive problem; defense was their bread and butter. This should be a high scoring game and should leave fans on the edge of their seats. Expect Big Blue to barely pull through.

Prediction: Giants 41-38

Well, that’s all the time I have for today. If you disagree with anything I say, leave a comment below (either on WordPress or Facebook) or email me at spidey23us@yahoo.com.
