Bob Haynie: Weekend Football Picks
How about them Ravens?
Baltimore put on a defensive show on Thanksgiving night in pounding the 49’ers and breaking San Francisco’s eight-game winning streak.
The Ravens, with a record of 8-3, are in a strong position to win their first AFC North title since 2006. There is still work to be done, but Baltimore controls it’s own destiny in its quest for a home playoff game.
On to the picks.
Maryland @ NC State–The Terrapins end their season horrible season by losing to the Wolfpack.
Notre Dame @ Stanford–The Irish pull the upset against Andrew Luck and the Cardinal.
UCLA @ USC–The Trojans will top the Bruins in this rivalry game.
Buffalo @ NY Jets–The Bills slide continues as the Jets complete the season sweep.
Chicago @ Oakland–A team with a guy named Hainie at QB can’t lose. And the Bears will not lose to the Raiders.
New England @ Philadelphia–I’d like to pick the Eagles, but I won’t. The Patriots win.
Have a great weekend.
