Week 12 NFL Picks

By Denny Basens, Sports Talk Philly staff writer 

Arizona at Atlanta

The Cardinals have been struggling for some time now, and it doesn't seem likely that a road matchup with the rested Falcons will be a cure for their woes. 

Pick: Atlanta 30, Arizona 24

Cincinnati at Baltimore

With key skill positions lost to injury, the Bengals continue their implosion. 

Pick: Baltimore 23, Cincinnati 14

Jacksonville at Buffalo

The only thing the Jaguars are good for these days are garbage time points for fantasy football teams. 

Pick: Buffalo 24, Jacksonville 14

Tennessee at Chicago

With Matt Barkley in play, the Bears may actually be worse than the winless Cleveland Browns right now. 

Pick: Tennessee 31, Chicago 10

New York at Cleveland

Speaking of the Browns, they're still not winning a game any time soon. 

Pick: New York 27, Cleveland 17

San Diego at Houston

Slight edge to the Texans at home in a battle of up-and-down, mediocre AFC franchises. 

Pick: Houston 23, San Diego 20

San Francisco at Miami

Another week, another blowout loss for Chip Kelly. He's in real danger of being one-and-down in San Francisco, and then never seen or heard from again in the NFL. 

Pick: Miami 31, San Francisco 20

Los Angeles at New Orleans

Mismatch of the week? Drew Brees vs. Jared Goff. Saints roll at home. 

Pick: New Orleans 27, Los Angeles 13

Seattle at Tampa Bay

The Bucs are too young to take on one of the top two teams in the NFC. 

Pick: Seattle 27, Tampa Bay 16

New England at New York

Even as the Patriots deal with some injury problems, the Jets are too much of a mess to seriously challenge them. 

Pick: New England 30, New York 17

Carolina at Oakland

The Super Bowl Hangover is real. I don't see the up-and-down Panthers going across the country and knocking off a Raiders team that has been playing very well all season. 

Pick: Oakland 23, Carolina 17

Kansas City at Denver

Andy Reid just hasn't been able to get over the hump against the Broncos, and I don't see that changing this weekend. 

Pick: Denver 24, Kansas City 16

Green Bay at Philadelphia

The Eagles have been strong at home, but they're now down to their third right tackle, and sooner or later a great quarterback like Aaron Rodgers is going to put a stop to the losing streak his team has been on. 

Pick: Green Bay 31, Philadelphia 20
