Here are my picks for the NFL's Week 15:
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 16
San Francisco 5-8 at San Diego 7-6 8:20 PM [Line: San Diego by 9]
Both teams are just one game out of first place in their divisions. Yep, 5-8 San Francisco is in the playoff hunt.
RJ's Pick: San Diego by 14
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 19
Cleveland 5-8 at Cincinnati 2-11 1:00 PM [Line: Cincinnati by 1.5]
The Bengals have lost 10 straight games, the longest streak in the NFL. The Battle of Ohio is more of a skirmish this year.
RJ's Pick: Cleveland by 3
Washington 5-8 at Dallas 4-9 1:00 PM [Line: Dallas by 6]
Tashard Choice asked for Michael Vick's autograph immediately after last week's loss. In related news, Choice is asking for some self respect for Christmas.
RJ's Pick: Dallas by 11
Houston 5-8 at Tennessee 5-8 1:00 PM [Line: Tennessee by 1]
The Titans have dropped six straight. The loser of this game will be in sole possession of last place in the AFC South.
RJ's Pick: Houston by 4
Jacksonville 8-5 at Indianapolis 7-6 1:00 PM [Line: Indianapolis by 5]
A loss would knock the Colts out of playoff contention. The last year the Colts missed the playoffs: 2001.
RJ's Pick: Indianapolis by 10
Kansas City 8-5 at St. Louis 6-7 1:00 PM [Line: St. Louis by 3]
If Matt Cassel can play, the Chiefs will win. If he can't, the Rams will win. I don't think he'll be able to play.
RJ's Pick: St. Louis by 7
Buffalo 3-10 at Miami 7-6 1:00 PM [Line: Miami by 6]
The Dolphins are 1-5 at home this season.
RJ's Pick: Buffalo by 2
Detroit 3-10 at Tampa Bay 8-5 1:00 PM [Line: Tampa Bay by 5.5]
The last time the Lions won a road game was October 28, 2007.
RJ's Pick: Detroit by 1
Arizona 4-9 at Carolina 1-12 1:00 PM [Line: Carolina by 2.5]
