SportsFilter NFL Pick 'Em Week 14: Shut the F--- Up, Thielen Edition: Week 14 of the NFL season begins tonight with a game I will always view as a revenge opportunity for the 1999 AFC Championship Game: Jaguars vs. Titans. There's a new leader in the SportsFilter Pick 'Em for the first time in 10 weeks -- Truthhurts scored 72 to take an 11-point lead over Tron7. Ic23b stays in third. Jagsnumberone wins the week with 74. Make your picks and never get in a yelling match with a man who was born ornery and only got worse from there.

I missed the early Sunday games and did that thing where you lock all the remaining games. It worked! Six for six with one exactamundo, Ralph Malph. This is where my climb to the championship began.

Here's a surprise, I'll go ... Jacksonville by 3. I'll even call the score. Jags will get a defensive touchdown, then after a bad punt, put together a 15 yard drive and kick a 52 yard field goal, while Blaine Gabbert (Mariotta gets hurt in the 2nd quarter) throws an interception to Ramsey with 52 seconds left, sealing the 10-7 victory. ESPN will spend 10 minutes talking about how bad these teams are/lol. DDDDUUUUVVVVVAAAALLLL.

Here we are, once again sitting comfortably in 5th place while tending to score in the high 40s to low 50s most weeks. It's called consistent mediocrity, sort of like most chain restaurants or fast food places. Now I've made myself hungry. I will do shrimp scampi with angel hair pasta tonight before we head for the Celtics game.

There's some faint hope for Titans to grab a wild card spot, but Pittsburgh and Baltimore would need to self-destruct. Still, you can't make it if you don't win. Tennessee by 6

Disappointing Panthers vs the "giving it a good try' Browns. Do the Panthers have any pride? Maybe, but they also have a sore-armed QB. Cleveland by 7

Chiefs are very much in the hunt, but the Hunt is no longer a Chief. Ravens are hoping for a playoff spot. Kansas City by 13

The little ponies were prancing for a bit, but will stumble again here. Houston by 14 LOCK

Some insist it's coming from frigid New England to the heat and humidity of Miami, others say there's something about the stadium - perhaps the natural grass vs turf - that makes the Patriots have such a difficult time there. Whatever the cause, it won't apply Sunday. New England by 16

Native Americans do not have a quarterback. Then again, maybe the Giants don't have one either. What sort of outcome will this game Foster? New York (National Conference) by 9

Saints might be just a little bit ticked off about last week's result. This one is for the championship of the eastern Gulf of Mexico. New Orleans by 17 LOCK

Teams have unpredictable reactions to the firing of a head coach. Packers might be fired up about it and play their heads off. Green Bay by 3

Jets vs Bills. Man, I can't wait to miss this one. Buffalo by 8

This is another potential mismatch. Potential? Who am I kidding? Los Angeles (American Conference) by 19 LOCK

Broncos should have an easy ride in this one. Denver by 14 LOCK

The NFC East is at stake here. The stake will be driven through the heart of the Eagles. Dallas by 10 LOCK

Steelers sort of stepped on their own pecker last week, meaning they really need this one against Raiders. While I would dearly love to see them stumble, it's not probable. Pittsburgh by 7

Big kitties chase small birds. Can the kitties catch them? Detroit by 3

I have to go with the billy goats here. Los Angeles (National Conference) by 17 LOCK

Were the Seahawks watching Vikings' loss last week? If so, did they learn anything? Perhaps Vikings also learned much. Minnesota by 3

posted by Howard_T at 04:43 PM on December 06

Tennessee by 6 (Quite possibly the only 6 points scored)

Buffalo by 10 (Can we move the Pats to a different division for a few seasons? It would be nice to see if another team could lock down AFC home field if the Pats aren't gifted 6 wins every fucking year in divisional play)
