NFL Week 15 Picks

Saturday December 18, 2010

Welcome to another week of the NFL season. The playoffs are getting closer, but there are still many teams in the hunt. San Francisco is all but done thanks to Thursday night’s loss to the Chargers 34-7. This still leaves my total losses to 76. Here are the rest of my picks for this week; remember the s.o. stands for the potential shutout game.

Now let’s look at our game of the week.

Game of the Week:

The Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants meet again. This time, the crucial encounter will determine who controls the NFC East. The Eagles have a winning streak against them stemming from last year. Yet, key members of their defense are hurt and will not play tomorrow. This gives the Giants running game an advantage. However, they need Eli Manning to be the quarterback that we’ve seen before. He’s thrown too many interceptions in the past few weeks. WR Steve Smith, one of Eli’s favorite targets, is out for the season due to a torn meniscus in his left knee. Plus, Asante Samuel of the Eagles will play. Samuel has a history of picking off Eli and is looking forward to it again.

The Eagles’ offense has never looked better. Michael Vick is turning this offense into a powerhouse. However, they now go up against a powerhouse defense in the Giants. They remember how they were handled in their first encounter earlier this season, and they will do everything they can to prevent history repeating itself. This battle is the matchup to focus on. Can the Giants defense stop the Eagles’ onslaught? Whoever wins will have a big advantage for the playoffs and over the NFC East. Expect another streak to end, because the Giants are DUE!!!

Prediction: Giants 28-20

Good luck with all of your picks and teams this week.

Yours Truly,
