TransGriot 2014 NFL Picks Week 15

Had another great week of picking NFL games with a respectable 11-5 Week 14 record.  

However, it still wasn't good enough to make a dent in Mr. Watts' sizable lead and I have only three weeks left in the regular season.

Our WTF Game for Week 14 had to be the San Francisco 49ers losing to the Oakland Raiders.

I guess the Raiders wanted those NFL Bay Area bragging rights worse than the Niners did.

Speaking of football teams, my fave NFL ballers have a critical game this Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.  However, the Texans are 0 for Indianapolis in their franchise history, and probably need to win this game and the upcoming ones against the Ravens and the Jaguars to finish 10-6 and have a shot at joining the AFC playoff party.

Will they do it?  Not sure.   The Texans have had buzzard's luck in the RCA Dome and Lucas Oil Stadium.   It was self explanatory when Peyton Manning was the Colts QB, but the Texans inexplicably lost a game in Indy when the Colts were struggling to finish 2-14 and they were rolling to an AFC South division title.

We'll see if that negative 0 for Indy streak ends when they kick off at Lucas Oil Stadium at 12 noon CST.

I know JJ Watt will be on his A+  NFL MVP level game.   Just need Ryan Fitzpatrick to play somewhat close to that level for the next three weeks.

But back to discussing the 2014 prognostication season for a moment.   Me and my fellow prognosticators all tied for top honors last week, but that was not the case in Week 14.  Mike rolled to a 13-3 record to pad his lead to a whopping 11 games.  Short of a massive collapse, he's well on his way to taking his first  solo  prognostication title.

Well, at least I'm not bringing up the rear this year.
