Predicting Bengals-Browns and all Week 12 games

Cincinnati Bengals beat writer Jay Morrison offers his predictions for Week 12 of NFL games.

Never pick against the Lions on Thanksgiving.

Never pick against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving.

Never pick the Giants the rest of the year.

The Chiefs have lost four of five, but the Bills will help them get right.

The Colts aren’t as bad as people think, and the Titans aren’t as good.

The Falcons are starting to put things together.

You could run this game through a simulator 1,000 times and get 1,000 Patriots wins.


Carolina gets caught looking ahead to the Saints.

Even if Pete Carroll has more senior moments, Seattle should handle the 49ers.

If you have anyone from either team in fantasy, start him.

The Jaguars clinch their first non-losing season since 2010.

One team fired its offensive coordinator, the other its defensive coordinator. Who’s next?

This one looked so appealing when the schedule first came out. Not so much now.

Pick: Steelers 35, Packers 20

The Ravens just might get their fourth shutout of the year.

The Bengals have 99 problems, but the Browns aren’t one.
