LCB NFL Picks: Week 15

December 13, 2008




+3 Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Atlanta Falcons: Langston's Pick: After the whooping the Bucs took on the road from the Panthers I expect them to come in and play with more intensity against the Falcons. Its just too bad none of the NFC South teams ever lose at home. I like the Falcons to win this game due to the newly found home field advantage at the Georgia Dome. The win will put them in control of their playoff fate going into week 16. LCG's Pick: Falcons at home, you can almost automatically tally another one for the ATL in the win column.


+2.5 Pittsburgh Steelers @ Baltimore Ravens: Langston's Pick: The Ravens are coming off of a great victory over the Redskins, where they controlled every facet of the game. However they were playing the Redskins who have just fallen apart in the second half of the season. While the Steelers beat the Cowboys, another team who is managing to fall apart despite a talent filled roster, with an amazing comeback. These two teams mirror each other; they both have great defenses, power running games, and a great play-action passing game. This has the chance to be one of the best games of the year, it is a fierce rivalry between two teams that absolutely despise each other. This game could go either way but I like the Steelers to win, leading them to another division title and another trip to the playoffs. LCG's Pick: Pittsburgh are the Ravens in two seasons, talented and overwhelming. Steelers by 6.


+3 Minnesota Vikings @ Arizona Cardinals: Langston's Pick: The Vikings have a slim lead in the Norris and the Cardinals have already clinched their first division crown since 1949. Both teams are talented on both sides of the ball, but one has Tarvaris Jackson slinging the rock and the other has two-time MVP Kurt Warner leading the O. Kurt Warner will take care of the ball and do his damage through the air, while Tarvaris will do his best not to lose the game for Purple Jesus and the rest of the Vikes. That being said, I have absolutely no trust in Tarvaris as a starting QB. The only way he can change this game, is negatively. Cardinals win by 7, setting up a two-way tie at the top of the Norris. LCG's Pick: Tarvaris more like Barvaris (terribly vague Simspons reference). Cardinals by 5.



+3 New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys, Sunday Night on NBC: Langston's Pick: The Giants looked uninspired against the Eagles last week and the Cowboys threw up all over themselves, blowing a 10 point lead against the Steelers. To be honest I have went back and forth on this game about 4 times due to the following factors; the Giants will be without their measty playmaker Brandon Jacobs while the Cowboys are in the middle of a meltdown. The Cowboys rarely, if ever, lose in the Big D. While the Giants rarely lose. T.O. is complaining, while Plax is plea bargaining. With all that being said I settled on the Giants. The deciding factor; Romo has something Eli doesn't, an innate ability to make his dumbest throws at the worst possible time. Giants win by 4. By the way, the countdown to the Cowboys implosion has already started .. 10.. 9...8..7.... LCG's Pick: He may not be Pey Pey, but Eli can sure sling the rock. Giants by 6. I can't wait until this fiasco in Dallas really get started.



+14 Cleveland Browns @ Philadelphia Eagles, Monday Night on ESPN: Langston's Pick: This is another MNF game that looked great in August. Its too bad for Romeo that his team just fell apart(physically and mentally) this year. Hopefully he gets another job, I think he has the ability to be a great head coach. Oh well. Eagles will cruise in this game, keeping their playoff hopes alive for at least one more week. LCG's Pick: The Browns are free from a QB controversy and for the first time in history that will be a negative thing. Eagles cover easily.
