Gerry Dulac's NFL Picks
Share with others:
Green Bay Packers (12-6) at Chicago Bears (12-5)
3 p.m. • Like the Jets-Patriots and Steelers-Ravens, the Packers-Bears will be meeting for the third time in the rubber match of their season series. And, like the Steelers-Ravens in the AFC, it will be a matchup of the two stingiest teams in the NFC. That being said, it has been offensive explosions that have fueled each team, and today will be no different. This could come down to which team has the ball last.
Prediction: Packers, 34-28
New York Jets (13-5) at Pittsburgh Steelers (13-4)
6:30 p.m. • The Jets are trying to do what the Steelers did in 2005 when they became the first No. 6 seed to win all three playoff games on the road and win the Super Bowl. The Jets and Steelers both have a penchant for finding ways to win in the fourth quarter. But, despite the similarities, the game will not be close, no matter who wins. The past 12 AFC titles games have been decided by an average of 12.8 points.
Prediction: Steelers, 27-14
Dulac's mark • Last week: 3-1 (.750) • Season: 159-105 (.602)
