NFL Picks - Week 13 Primetime Games

Pittsburgh at Baltimore (8:20 PM, Sunday) - as the story written by Dustin below intones, the Steelers have not lost to Baltimore since 2006 when Ben Roethlisberger starts the game.  The area around here has been nutty all week long, on talk radio and on television.  Pittsburgh's offense is struggling a little bit, but their defense has been very good.  As always, Baltimore's defense is good.  It is going to be a low-scoring, defensive slog.  However, this is the night when Baltimore wins against Roethlisberger.

New York Jets at New England (8:30 PM, Monday) - this is a game I have been salivating over for some time.  The Jets were a surprise last season, but they seem to have come together a little more this season.  New England has been a perennial contender this entire decade and they have the home field and a premier quarterback in Tom Brady.  The matchup will be the Jets' receivers against the Patriots' secondary.  I am going to take New York in what should be a hell of a battle.

Pittsburgh at Baltimore (8:30 pm, Sunday)- This is going to be one of those games were everyone playing in it won't be able to get out of bed tomorrow. Pittsburgh has been struggling on offense lately, but their defense has been dominating. As for the Ravens, their secondary has been suspect all year and their offense has been decent. This is going to be a great game, but Pittsburgh wins with Mike Wallace beating the Ravens deep at least once tonight.

New York Jets at New England (8:30 pm, Monday)- I haven't believed in the Jets all year. They are a fluky team that gets lucky. Their defense isn't as dominating as everyone seems to think and I think Tom Brady rips the secondary with the Jim Leonard injury earlier this week. Pats win by 2 scores.
