NFL Locks of the Week

Jacksonville Jaguars +1 over Houston Texans

The AFC South division is all wrapped up as the undefeated Indianapolis Colts clinched the division and a playoff berth after beating the Houston Texans last week. The Texans put up a good fight against Peyton Manning and company last week as they got out to a quick 17-0 lead, but just like the Colts have done all season they came back and beat Houston in convincing fashion.

This week the Texans will go up against the Jacksonville Jaguars who still have a good chance of clinching a playoff berth through the AFC Wildcard. Even though the Jaguars are leading the way in the race for the Wildcard in the AFC with a 7-4 record, the Texans and the Tennessee Titans will be right behind them and ready to capitalize on any mistakes made by the Jags.

Even though I believe the Texans are still a very good team, I believe the Jaguars will upset Houston this weekend.

New Orleans Saints -9.5 over Washington Redskins

Last week Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints proved they are the best team in the NFL, at least in my opinion, with an inspired win over the New England Patriots who could only watch as Brees light up the secondary for five passing touchdowns.

This week the undefeated Saints will go up against the lowly Washington Redskins who have only been able to win three games all season long. The Redskins offense have really struggled this season as they have dealt with serious injuries, especially to their running game as Clinton Portis hasn’t been able to get back on the field since suffering a concussion and Ladell Betts is out for the season.

With that being said Washington will almost certainly lose by a very big number against the Saints in week 13 as Drew Brees and company tries to stay on their game for the next two weeks before going head to head against the Dallas Cowboys in week 15.

San Diego Chargers -13 over Cleveland Browns

The San Diego Chargers got off to a rocky start at the beginning of this season as they seemingly could only sit a watch the Denver Broncos dominated in the first six weeks of the year. Fortunately for the Chargers, Philip Rivers and company have been able to get back on track as of late with four straight wins coming into this weekend’s matchup against arguably the worst team in the league one win Cleveland Browns.

After reclaiming the top spot in the AFC West with a win over the Denver Broncos a few weeks ago the Chargers have been red hot and have been able to get their offense firing on all cylinders. This week the Browns will be helpless to stop the onslaught of the San Diego offense as the Chargers will almost certainly put up another huge number on the scoreboard. With that being said, Rivers and company will without doubt in my mind cover the 13 points spread this weekend over the Browns.
