Week 14 NFL picks 2012: Striving to be the best

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Here are my third place Week 14 picks against the spread with teasers and 'Barry Sanders: A Football Life.' You're welcome.

It's impossible to watch this, especially as a Lions fan, and not get goosebumps. Try it:

I'm in 3rd place in my spread pick 'em league, so here's to moving up the ranks to be the greatest, like Barry Sanders, even if his Dad doesn't want to admit it. And because there are not sufficient words to describe just how great Barry Sanders was, my picks this week will be without words or GIFs (mostly because I'm late).

Broncos (-9.5) over RAIDERS

BILLS (-3.5) over Rams

Cowboys (+2.5) over BENGALS

BROWNS (-5.5) over Chiefs

BUCS (-7.5) over Eagles

Falcons (-3.5) over PANTHERS

Jets (-2.5) over JAGS

Update: So apparently I didn't hit submit in my pick 'em league on two games (this one and the Chiefs-Browns) so I flopped the two picks to reflect what I have in my pick 'em league.

COLTS (-5.5) over Titans

Bears (-2.5) over VIKINGS

Dolphins (+10.5) over 49ERS

SEAHAWKS (-10.5) over Cardinals

Texans (+4.5) over PATRIOTS

Teasers (+14 points):

Lions (+20.5) over PACKERS

Ravens (+16.5) over REDSKINS

STEELERS (+14) over Chargers

Saints (+19) over GIANTS

Last week: 12-4

SEASON: 127-63-2
