49ers over Seahawks – With my locks of the week, I vary between true easy lock picks and bold predictions. There are a lot of easy games this week and others games I am sure about I have picked before and I try not to focus on the same teams every week. So why the ‘Niners this week? Because they are still on the outside looking in and I believe this team is better than what their record says and are playing good ball right now. Kaepernick is not the best QB in the league but you cannot deny that he gets the job done. 31-24
49ers 31 – Seahawks 24
Steelers over Saints – The New Orleans Saints travel to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers are coming off a bye week where the team got some very much needed rest. Steelers will need to ride on the back of RB Le’Veon Bell. The Steelers are playing at home where I can guarantee that there will be a lot of terrible towels being waved during this game. QB Ben Roethlisberger has been having a good year and will need to play mistake-free football to lead his team to a win. The Steelers are 4-1 at home this year whereas the Saint 1-4 away from their dome. Steelers will win this game.
Steelers 28 – Saints 17
Colts over Redskins – The AFC South leading Colts will continue to ride high against the Redskins this weekend. Guess who is leading the league in passing yards? Not Peyton (3,558), not Brady (2,998), and not Rodgers (2,957). Andrew Luck leads the league with 3,641 passing yards and is third in the league with 29 TD’s behind Peyton Manning (34) and Aaron Rodgers (30). Not to mention the Redskins allow the 8th most yards in the air per game to opponents with 230. Throw in the fact the Colts are 5-2 at Lucas Oil and you can count on a home team win.
Colts 33 – Redskins 24
Colts over Redskin – The Colts offense has been one of the league’s best, backed by QB Andrew Luck and a slew of wide receivers such as T.Y Hilton and Reggie Wayne. Even with Colt McCoy starting, it seems hard to imagine Washington coming out of this match-up with a victory. While it’s not impossible, the Colts are just on too much of a hot streak at the moment to make the possibility realistic.
Colts over Redskins – Andrew Luck has been on fire this year with 29 touchdowns and just 10 interceptions. The Colts are 5-2 at home this year and will get the job done against a struggling Washington team.
Colts 27 – Redskins 17
