LCB NFL Picks: Week 17

December 27, 2008


(Click picture to enlarge)
+3 Chicago Bears (9-6) @ Houston Texans (7-8): Langston's Pick: The Bears need to win to keep their playoff chances alive while the Texans are playing for respect, contract incentives and jobs. Houston has been playing consistent football all season long, and their record is a product of being in one of the toughest divisions in football. I like Steve Slaton and the Texans to vault the Vikings to the playoffs with a win. Texans by 6. LCG's Pick: Bears. However I believe Houston will play hard, just not as hard as the team from the Windy City.
+7 New York Giants (12-3) @ Minnesota Vikings (9-6): Langston's Pick: The Giants will be doing their best to rest up for the playoffs, while the Vikings have their eyes set on the playoffs. I like Adrien Peterson and the Vikings defense to carry this team into January. Vikings by 3. LCG's Pick: No Plax + rest + nothing to prove + annoying amounts of drama= loss, Vikings by 6.
-6 New England Patriots (10-5) @ Buffalo Bills (7-8): Langston's Pick: I would really like to see the Patriots lose, but I don't see it happening. The Bills are just too inconsistent and cannot match the level of talent the Pats wield. New England by 10. LCG's Pick: Buffalo makes me uncomfortable. The Pats leave me disheartened. I would like to see the Patriots blow their shot at the playoffs before NY and Miami decide their fate, but the Bills don't have the talent to pull off this upset. Patriots by 7.
+3 Miami Dolphins (10-5) @ New York Jets (9-6): Langston's Pick: The Jets should have already locked up a playoff spot, but they struggle mightily on the west coast. The Dolphins are one of the surprise teams in the league, going from 1-15 to playoff contenders. The story in Miami is a great one, but their season ends here. The Jets are dynamite at home and should roll over the Dolphins in the Meadowlands. Jets by 7. LCG's Pick: Dolphins are my pick. I understand picking the Jets but Miami just speaks out to me.
+1 Dallas Cowboys (9-6) @ Philadelphia Eagles (8-6-1): Langston's Pick: The Cowboys are the more talented team. The Eagles are the better team. However if the better team always won, watching football wouldn't be as much fun as it is. I like the Cowboys to take this game and their malfunctioning attitudes to the playoffs, where they can implode in front of the entire nation. LCG's Pick: I hope that the Eagles make it to the Super Bowl, but they need a win and a whole lot of help just to make it into January. Dallas is kind of bs. Any time these teams go against each other no matter what season, I feel inclined to take Philadelphia every time.
+8 Denver Broncos (8-7) @ San Diego Chargers (7-8): Langston's Pick: Earlier in the season the Broncos needed a bogus call to beat the Chargers. Tomorrow, they will be lucky if the bad calls will even matter. Rivers is on a mission to take his douchey attitude and his team to the playoffs, and with the way he is playing I wouldn't bet against him. Chargers by 6. LCG's Pick: I like the Chargers to take the game and the AFC West. Denver has been doing their best to blow this season, and they give me no reason to believe tomorrow night will be any different.
