2015 TransGriot NFL Picks-Week 14

The Carolina  Panthers had to work for it, but they stayed unbeaten at 12-0 with their  41-38 shootout win over the New Orleans Saints, clinched the NFC South and kept their grip on the number one seed in the NFC playoff bracket.

Meanwhile I won't be getting a free Texans slush from Sonic this week as their four game winning streak came to an end in Buffalo.with a 30-21 loss to the Bills.

It won't get any easier for my hometown NFL ballers as the  6-6 Texans face a pissed off Brady and Company on national TV Sunday night at NRG Stadium.  The Patriots were upset at home by the Philadelphia Eagles 35-28 and have suffered a string of crucial injuries that have fueled their current losing streak.  But the Patriots haven't lost three games in a row since 2002 and have won five of six against the Texans including the playoffs.

That one win however came in Houston, and the Pats are banged up while the Texans are relatively healthy.  Fortunately the Colts lost too, but the Texans missed an opportunity to take control of the AFC South lead by failing to handle their NFL business in Buffalo.

As for our 2014 prognostication contest, for the second time this season, we all tied for top honors this week with 10-6 records because of the frustrating for me and Eli result of the Dallas-Washington game.  The late game heroics for the Cowboys forced the tie between us and helped Mike maintain his lead over moi with the regular season coming to a close soon.

Another week, and another opportunity to try to catch the defending champ before the 2015 NFL regular season ends.
