This could be the unlucky week 13 for many teams out there.  The Saints already ran out of their luck with the loss to Atlanta Thursday night.  Big games on the schedule this week for the Redskins, Cowboys, Seahawks, Vikings, Bucs, Bengals and Steelers.  The one lucky team out there is the team that actually has that name on the back of one of their jerseys.  Andrew Luck has been nothing short of phenomenal in his rookie season and has his Colts at (7-4) and in prime position for a wild card spot.  Here's a look at this weeks picks.

Bills 27 - Jaguars 24:  Both teams should be able to score against weak defenses.  Look for RB's Fred Jackson, C.J. Spiller to play big time while Jacksonville's young receivers counter the Bills ground game with an aerial attack.

Bears 20 - Seahawks 17:  Seattle is terrible on the road and the Bears are solid at home.  I don't see any way we deviate from that today.  Unless Marshawn Lynch can bust through Chicago's tough run wall then I don't see the Hawks grabbing a win on the road.

Lions 31 - Colts 28:  This should be a nice little fantasy game.  Start your guys on both squads because defense won't be an issue.  Look for back and forth action from Stafford and Luck throwing multiple TD's.  The difference will be the hungry Lions pass rush annoying the rookie all afternoon.  Luck will turn the ball over today.

Packers 42 - Vikings 24:  The Pack lost their first game in over a month last week in NY against the Giants.  They got embarrassed and MVP Aaron Rodgers is not happy.  He'll take it out on the Vikes defense today and toss a few TD's.  A.P. should play well but Ponder will struggle.

Panthers 21 - Chiefs 9:  I don't know how K.C. players are going to be able to stay focused and compete today after the tragic death of starting LB Javon Belcher.  The Chiefs have their problems already and the Panthers have improved recently.  I'll take Cam having a big day today.

Patriots 27 - Dolphins 18:  Miami always plays the Pats tough.  Division battles can be like that at times.  This could be a trap game for N.E. since they have a strangle hold on the AFC East and will cruise to the playoffs.  RB's Reggie Bush and Daniel Thomas will have to play huge roles if Miami is to win this game.

Jets 13 - Cardinals 10:  I almost left this game out because it's nauseating to even write about.  I told you guys after the Cards started out (4-0) that they were frauds.  The Jets told you that themselves after the circus came to town.  Neither team has any offense whatsoever.  This game may end in a 0-0 tie.

49ers 20 - Rams 17:  Kaepernick is getting the start again.  Harbaugh has decided to move on with his hand picked 2nd year player as the starter for his Super Bowl contending team.  Personally I don't like the move but it should still be enough for the Niners to get the win in St. Louis.  They will rely on Frank Gore and watch out for Anthony Dixon on the ground as well.

Texans 35 - Titans 14:  Houston has had some close calls lately.  Squeaking out wins against the Lions and Jaguars in recent weeks proves that the Texans can win by dominating or coming back in close games.  They are the best team in football and will show the NFL that they are for real with a beat down in Tennessee today.

Bucs 31 - Broncos 24:  This could be the game of the day.  Two high powered offenses going at it with MVP and ROY contenders storming the field.  I expect Doug Martin to have another big game and Peyton should have his way against the Bucs last ranked pass defense.  The difference will be the solid run game of the Bucs as I like them to get the road win.

Ravens 17 - Steelers 10:  The only way Pitt wins this game is if Flacco has an awful game.  Big Ben is out again so don't expect the Steelers to do much scoring offensively.  It will be up to that top rated defense and the return of Troy Polamalu to take over the game.

Browns 28 - Raiders 25:  This is another fantasy football dream match up.  If you like passing down the field then watch this game as Weeden and Palmer will both throw for major yards.  The Browns have an ace in the hole with Trent Richardson so if the game is close look for Cleveland to feed him the ball.

Chargers 24 - Bengals 21:  The Chargers are once again a disappointment.  Norv Turner will be fired.  But they will win this game.  Andy Dalton will struggle throwing the ball against an under valued San Diego defense.  If the offense could score then they would have a pretty good team.  The Chargers will make sure A.J. Green doesn't torch em all day.

Cowboys 24 - Eagles 13:  If Dallas doesn't win this game then they should just forfeit the season.  The Eagles wings have been clipped, player by player this season with numerous injuries.  They're done and so is Andy Reid's career in Philly.  If Jason Garrett wants to save his job then he better win tonight in Big D and keep his Boys in the playoff hunt.
