Who I like this weekend

It should be a very interesting weekend in the NFL with all but a handful of games being meaningful in some way, shape or form.

Of course, here in Pittsburgh, the games everyone will be keeping an eye on will be at 4:15 p.m.

That's when Cleveland will host the Steelers, Cincinnati hosts Baltimore, Denver hosts Kansas City and Oakland hosts San Diego.

The Steelers will be as healthy as they've been in quite some time with only LaMarr Woodley sitting this one out.

Pittsburgh should be plenty motivated and the Browns are, let's face it, not very good. Cleveland will be inspired by the idea of helping to put a bump in Pittsburgh's playoff road, but the Browns are 4-11 for a reason - they earned it.

Take the Steelers, who are favored by 7, 23-13.

In Cincinnati, Marvin Lewis owns a 10-7 record against the Ravens as the Bengals' head coach and they probably would have won the game in Baltimore if not for the league's silly rule about receptions in the end zone.

The Bengals match up well against the Ravens and will have a full house for only the second time this season. The other was in a seven-point loss to the Steelers when they were driving late before being stopped by Pittsburgh.

Baltimore is a 3-point favorite but is just 3-4 on the road.

I like Cincinnati, 21-17

In Denver, Kyle Orton returns and will exact some revenge on the Broncos for cutting him to go with Tim Tebow.

The Chiefs also seem to be inspired to play for interim coach Romeo Crennel.

Kansas City is getting three points and I like the Chiefs to win, 16-14

Finally, the Raiders can win the AFC West with a win and a Denver loss.

They are three-point favorites over San Diego, which will be playing what is surely the last game of the Norv Turner era.

I like the home team in this one, 24-20.

That will leave the AFC playoff seeds as so: 1. New England 2. Pittsburgh 3. Houston 4. Oakland 5. Baltimore 6. Cincinnati

I sure hope it works out like this. Thanks for posting the articles, Mesa. I don't have a lot of time to surf the net for Steelers articles. It's very convenient getting so many in one place.

My Predictions (Entire NFL):

Eagles: 27 Redskins: 13

Lions: 30 Packers:21

Saints: 23 Panthers: 17

Dolphins: 24 Jets: 16

Vikings: 27 Bears: 15

Jaguars: 13 Colts: 10

Rams: 17 49ers: 13

Bills: 31 Patriots: 24

Titans: 21 Texans: 14

Raiders: 20 Chargers: 17

Steelers: 24 Browns: 10

Seahawks: 23 Cardinals: 14

Falcons: 41 Buccaneers: 24

Bengals: 27 Ravens: 24

Broncos: 23 Chiefs: 21

Giants: 30 Cowboys: 17

Bengals leading 24-17 with a few minutes left in the game. The Ravens score on deep pass to Torrey Smith but they give the ball back to the Bengals with too much time left on the clock. The Bengals get into field goal range and score for a 27-24 victory over the Ravens.

The Steelers control the game with defense. Ben makes enough plays to put up 24 points and the Browns are unable to muster much offense scoring a garbage TD late in the game to make it 24 - 10 Steelers over the Browns.

Nothing wrong with that! Much easier than typing it all up. I am hoping my Rams - Niners prediction comes true. It's my upset special of the week. Rams try to end the season on a high note.
