Last Week: 13-3
Season to Date: 75-78-6

If you've been following my picks this year, or even just stumbling upon one of my quick blog posts from time to time, you've noticed that I kind of suck at this. I neededed a big week last week and finally I got it. After a tough start on Thanksgiving (1-2), I rattled back winning every Sunday game except for Jacksonville at Arizona. Hopefully my good karma can continue another week! I'm going to share my picks this week and then in one of the lazier writing tropes possible, I will give my reasoning in haiku form.

DALLAS (-3) over Washington

Got my first pick right
But is there any real proof
I picked before game?

GREEN BAY (-2.5) over Tampa Bay

Playoff hopes are slim
But I'll be there to see win
Find me and buy beer

ATLANTA (-3.0) over Minnesota

Root for the Vikings?
Can't do it no matter what
Let's go Falcons go!

New England (-8.5) over BUFFALO

Wanting to take Bills
But the Patriots are hot
Tyrod comes up short

San Francisco (+3.5) over CHICAGO

Hey, Garoppolo!
Jimmy leads Niners to win
Hey, Garoppolo!

Houston (+6.5) over TENNESSEE

Titans should get win
But AFC South is weird
Texans steal it late

Denver (-1.5) over MIAMI

Elway, Marino
Once great QB battle, now
Siemian, Cutler

Kansas City (-3.5) over NEW YORK JETS

Chiefs are in freefall
Yet still first in division
I like a high scoring game

JACKSONVILLE (-10.0) over Indianapolis

A weird division
But not weird enough for Colts
to pull off upset

Detroit (+3.0) over BALTIMORE

Ravens D is good
Lions will score more than Pack
All they need is one

LOS ANGELES CHARGERS (-14.0) over Cleveland

Open wild card race
AFC spot up for grabs
Chargers might sneak in

New York Giants (+8.0) over OAKLAND

Eli to ride pine
I believe in Geno Smith!
Bold guess - three touchdowns!

NEW ORLEANS (-5.0) over Carolina

Packers need the Saints
New Orleans will come through here
Kamara stays hot

Los Angeles Rams (-7.0) over ARIZONA

Sean McVay genius?
The dude is younger than me!
I do not like that

SEATTLE (+5.0) over Philadelphia

Wentz Wagon out West
But Seattle in primetime
Wilson gets it done

CINCINNATI (+4.5) over Pittsburgh

Big Ben on the road
Is not Big Ben when at home
Steelers win, but close
