NPC’s Week 14 NFL Picks


Here we are at the final quarter of the 2014 NFL Schedule. Playoff spots will be won and lost in these final four weeks and the AFC playoff race is tighter than your pants were after Thanksgiving dinner. One the flip side, some teams are already starting to figure out how they’re going to fire, or trade their head coach come Black Monday.

Here at Nice Pick Cowher we are not only a bunch of nerds who follow the Pittsburgh Steelers tirelessly but we are also a bunch of nerds who follow the NFL tirelessly. Therefore we put our money (or maybe just our pride) where our mouths are and make picks on every NFL game each week. We don’t mess around with point spreads or anything like that. Just straight up picks.

Dallas and Chicago are playing on Thursday again this week, this time against each other with the Cowboys trying to rebound from a Thanksgiving pounding by the Eagles and the Bears trying to salvage any semblance of a winning season. What you’ll really want to pay attention to is the tight AFC North action with Baltimore traveling to Miami to take on the Dolphins, who currently sit in one of the AFC Wild Card Playoff spots and Cleveland at home taking on Indianapolis. If Johnny Manziel outplays Andrew Luck the end of days are surely to come.

The Steelers are traveling to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals in a little AFC North road action. They’re hoping to rebound from a poor performance against New Orleans last week while the Bengals are in the midst of a three-game winning streak and remain a game and a half above the rest of the AFC North.

Your winners for Week 13 were Craig and I. Clearly I’m staging my comeback and the title is in my sights. Feel free to join us in making picks of your own in the comments section, or take the opportunity to heckle and criticize our predictions if that’s your deal. Make picks of your won or you can root for your favorite NPC staffer!
