The Twins Week 13 Picks!!!

Yvonne’s Game of the Week: New York Jets @ New England

This matchup feels like a playoff game! Could it be, because both teams are at 9-2, and the winner of this duel takes sole possession of the AFC East? Could be. Probably. Definitely.

The Jets have been playing winning football, but have also been lucky on more than one occasion (a couple of missed field goals could easily have had them at 7-4). Patriots look like a total different team from the one that loss to the Jets in Week 2. The defense is still a bit porous, but the offense seems to be thriving without Moss, and Brady has found his stride. I give the offensive edge to the Pats, and the defensive edge to the Jets. And because they will be on their home turf, I’m choosing the Patriots, 20-27.

Yvette’s Game of the Week: Pittsburgh Steelers @ Baltimore Ravens
D-FENSE! D-FENSE! Whoever has the best defense wins the AFC North. Bottom line. This is always a great, physical battle so I anticipate a low scoring affair.

In the first meeting Baltimore came out on top. Will the outcome be different this time? Well it depends.

The Ravens aren’t really big time scorers with Joe Flacco at the helm. BUUUT, Big Ben Roethlisberger hasn’t been lights out either, although I would say Pittsburgh has the better QB.

The Ravens are dealing with some injuries that could hamper them. Safety, Dawan Landry being hurt could turn out to be a key to this game. But Big Ben is hobbled a bit with a sprained ankle. Everyone’s hurting this time of the year.

Man! So who’s gonna win?!?!

I think the edge goes to the Ravens and their running game featuring Ray Rice, who was injured when the teams faced in Week 4. If Flacco can take care of the ball against the hard hitting James Harrison and that tough Steelers D, I will give the win to Baltimore Ravens. Baltimore Raves: 21-17
