Week 13 saw another dismal effort from the NY Jets offense. For the 2nd straight game they couldn’t find the end zone and came away with 1 lonely field goal. Things have gotten so bad, QB Geno Smith was benched at halftime. He will be back as starter this week. The Giants got down early but rebounded for a win against Washington. Justin Tuck who had just 2 sacks all year, put RG III down 4 times. Some say the ‘Skins are phoning it in. Head coaching job anyone? And for the Buffalo Bills playing in Toronto was no cure for their woes. They lost for the 4th time in the last 5 games, falling to the 2-9 Falcons in OT 34-31. Buffalo has only won 1 of the 6 games they’ve played in Toronto.
Questions going into Week 14. Are we taking Jacksonville serious now? They’ve won 3 of their last 4. Oakland is terrible on the road but are they worse than the Jets? Can the Giants not get distracted by beautiful weather in San Diego? Will Mike Tomlin be involved in a play when Pittsburgh hosts Miami. We could even have a playoff preview when Detroit visits Philly. Here are my picks for the week, I had to force myself not to pick all home teams.
