      Here's my results for week 12
      W-L-T record: 3-5
      Season record: 48-40-3

      Philadelphia Eagles (-2 1/2) Over Seattle Seahawks

      The Eagles have had a frustrating season, but even with Michael Vick out (Vince Young is no slouch) they should take care of the Seahawks...

      Buffalo Bills (-1 1/2) Over Tennessee Titans

      The Bills have lost four in a row, but they're still a sound team. Look for them to rebound against the Titans in Buffalo during a cold December game...

      Baltimore Ravens (-6 1/2) Over Cleveland Browns

      The Ravens have underperformed this year against lowly teams like the Browns, but Cleveland is a hated rival they won't have trouble getting jacked up over...

      Atlanta Falcons (-2 1/2) Over Houston Texans

      Points spreads don't fairly reflect the loss of both Matt Schaub and Matt Leinart at QB for the Texans...

      New Orleans Saints (-9) Over Detroit Lions

      Ndamukong Suh sure picked a bad time to be suspended, with the Saints offense looking almost as frightening as the Packers...

      Denver Broncos (Even) Over Minnesota Vikings

      Watching Tim Tebow play football is like watching David Caruso on CSI: Miami. To call what Caruso does on that show bad acting is unfair to the profession of acting, as Caruso in no way behaves like anything resembling a real human being. And yet, he is hypnotic to watch. Likewise, Tebow is horribly inaccurate, to a degree where the haters are almost correct in declaring he has no business being an NFL quarterback. But he doesn't make mistakes (only 1 interception in the seven games he's played at QB) and he's 5-1 as a starter. Make that 6-1...

      Dallas Cowboys (-4 1/2) Over Arizona Cardinals

      Tony Romo is still not getting the credit he deserves for how he's turned his season around...

      New York Giants (+7) Over Green Bay Packers

      Does my masochistic hatred of the Packers have any limits? I am 1-4 betting against Green Bay. But the Giants are playing at home and have low expectations. History has shown New York tends to deliver goods in that situation...

      San Diego Chargers (-2 1/2) Over Jacksonville Jaguars

      Here's what I said in my Week 7 preview on San Diego: "Meanwhile, the Chargers are 4-1, a shockingly good record for a team notorious for starting slow in the Norv Turner era, more impressive because their only loss is against the omnipotent Patriots. And yet, they oddly don't look particularly strong this year, either on the stat sheet or the eyeball test. Go figure." They are 0-6 since my analysis. But I figure that to turn around finally against the Jags. Maybe they aren't as good as 4-1 suggested, but they aren't as bad as 4-7 either...

        Here's my results for Thanksgiving Week
        W-L-T record: 3-7
        Season record: 50-47

        Worst week yet, after 9-1 the previous week. Oh well, reload.

        Chicago Bears (-3 1/2) over Seattle Seahawks

        The Bears have Cutler back and their defense is looking great, while the Seahawks are facing drug suspensions on their defense. Not a good combo.

        Indianapolis Colts (+6) over Detroit Lions

        The Lions are too uneven to give a serious playoff contender like the Colts six points.

        Buffalo Bills (-6) over Jacksonville Jaguars

        The Jaguars don't look good and playing in Toronto in December doesn't help.

        New England Patriots (-7 1/2) over Miami Dolphins

        The Patriots are one of the few teams I'll give almost any opponent a TD and still bet on them.

        Houston Texans (-6 1/2) over Tennessee Titans

        The Texans have proven themselves to be a serious Super Bowl contender this year and will show it again in Tennessee.

        Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+7) over Denver Broncos

        Peyton Manning was banged up last week, and the Bucs are a tough team. I'll pick Tampa Bay to be within a TD.

        Pittsburgh Steelers (+8) over Baltimore Ravens

        Will the Steelers lose their third in a row? Yes. Will they lose within a TD? Yes.

        Philadelphia Eagles (+10 1/2) over Dallas Cowboys

        I don't care how bad the Eagles are playing. The Cowboys don't deserve 10 1/2 points against anybody.
