Welcome to The Hoser's NFL Picks, Week 14, where we finally have some time to give our picks and analysis the time and thought they so richly ... BWAHAHAHAHA! Sorry, couldn't make it through that sentence with a straight face.

Again, just the quickies.

Indianapolis (+16.5) at BALTIMORE (41): The lack of Ray Lewis at LB might allow the Colts to get TWO first downs. Ravens 27, Colts 12.
Houston (+3) at CINCINNATI (38): Texans 22, Bengals 17.
Oakland (+11) at GREEN BAY (51.5): Packers 34, Raiders 17.
Kansas City (+10.5) at NEW YORK JETS (36.5): Todd Haley is still talking playoffs. Jim Mora to the white courtesy phone, please. Jets 20, Chiefs 10.
Minnesota (+10) at DETROIT (47): Adrian Peterson may not be playing, but the Vikes will still get an ADP -- All Day Pounding. Lions 30, Vikings 13.
New Orleans (-3.5) at TENNESSEE (49.5): Saints 27, Titans 20.
Philadelphia (+3) at MIAMI (46): I'd stay far, far away from this game, but God, the line does a body good. Dolphins 23, Eagles 17.
New England (-8) at WASHINGTON (48): Patriots 31, Redskins 17.
Atlanta (-3) at CAROLINA (47.5): Falcons 26, Panthers 21.
Tampa Bay (-2) at JACKSONVILLE (39): Jaguars 23, Buccaneers 19.
San Francisco (-3.5) at ARIZONA (39): 49ers 24, Cardinals 10.
Chicago (+3.5) at DENVER (35.5): I wonder if the Bears have thought about calling Kyle Orton yet? Broncos 16, Bears 13.
Buffalo (+7) at SAN DIEGO (47.5): I'll be watching this one just to see how Norv Turner screws it up. Chargers 26, Bills 20.
New York Giants (+3.5) at DALLAS (49): I'm pretty sure the Cowboys could just sign some homeless guy right before kickoff and he'd have two TDs and 140 yards receiving. Cowboys 29, Giants 23.
St. Louis Rams (+9.5) at SEATTLE (37): I'd rather watch the Donald Trump "debate." Seahawks 23, Rams 7.

Lock of the Week: San Francisco
Trifecta: San Francisco, Houston, New Orleans

Packers begin their two week Super Bowl memory lane tour: Oakland today, and KC next week.

Then Oak and KC get to compare notes the following week.

(Haven't watched the SBIV film - with Stram wired for sound - in awhile. One of my favorites. I think I'm ready for another taste).

You should try Rex and Rob.

The Bucs allowed 41 points to the Jaguars.

Consider my days as a Tebow fanboy over. /fuming

People are confused about Tebow. He made a pact with the devil.

Broncos 16, Bears 13.

Damn, that was close.

What with the replay equiptment that the reviewers use? "The play cannot be challenged because the review equiptment has malfunctioned..." or words to that effect. It wasn't just the Packers/Raiders game either. A multi-billion dollar business like the NFL doesn't have a contingency plan?

Broncos' offensive game plan 2.0: it's OK to suck for the first three quarters as long as you play well enough to win during the next two quarters.

The Lions almost blew it against the Vikings today. Considering that Joe Webb can't hit the side of a barn with a football, that is even more alarming. But a win is a win, and the Bears' loss gives them a game up for a wildcard spot.

You know, after watching New England struggle against Washington today, I can easily imagine Denver beating them.

Its not a happy image for me (much like today's Denver game was rough for phaedon), but I continue to be amazed at Denver's recent run.

The Raiders were better with Jason Campbell than with Carson Palmer.

Well, well, well, the Giants doing their best to keep Eagles' fans' hopes up.

If ever a player seemed to throw a game, it was Marion Barber. Everyone who had Denver minus three, and I'm fairly certain there were a lot, owe him a few of the dollars they saved.

I'd like to invite the 49ers to blow me. How the fuck do you lose to the Cardinals?

The Raiders were better with Jason Campbell than with Carson Palmer.

They still would be except for Campbell being, you know, out injured.

As for the Niners, Fraze, I think they were (a) coming down off the big division clinching win from last week and (b) looking ahead to the MNF showdown with the Steelers next week. But you're right, there's no way they should've lost and it was terrible to watch.

As for the Niners

add: (c) sans Patrick Willis
