|What's your top upset pick for Week 13|
# 01.12.2017 - 03:49:57
Matt Bowen, NFL writer: Vikings over Falcons. Atlanta is playing its best football of the season, but so is Minnesota quarterback Case Keenum. In his past three games, Keenum has completed 71.1 percent of his passes and has
tossed seven touchdowns. His Total QBR during this stretch? A lofty 93.7, and given Keenum's recent run of high-level play along with that defense under Mike Zimmer, I see the Vikings holding off the Falcons in one of the most physical games we will watch all year.
Mike Clay, NFL writer: Jets over Chiefs. Kansas City has lost five of six games and is coming off a loss to a struggling Buffalo team at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs have won only two more games than the Jets this season, but they are 4.5-point favorites at New York. That does not compute. The Chiefs have serious defensive issues and the offense has totaled four touchdowns over its past four outings. The Jets aren't a very good team, but they're playing better than the Chiefs. New York wins this one 23-22.
Domonique Foxworth, The Undefeated senior writer: 49ers over Bears. San Francisco's offense-minded head coach, Kyle Shanahan, and unproven general manager, John Lynch, have been eager to play Jimmy Garoppolo, whom they acquired a month ago in a trade with the Patriots. With C.J.
Beathard playing well, benching him didn't seem like the best move. But Beathard got banged up at the end of last week's game and Jimmy G looked good in his brief fill-in http://www.officialsunstore.com/Shaquille_Oneal_Jersey duty. Despite the fact that Beathard's injuries don't appear serious enough to keep him from starting, I think the 49ers will shelve him and Garoppolo will be exceptional in a win over the uninspired Bears.
Mike Sando, senior NFL writer: Seahawks over Eagles. I picked against the Seahawks as a home favorite against Atlanta in Week 11, but I'll take them as a home underdog against a Philly team that figures to stumble somewhere along the way. To win, Seattle needs to slow the Eagles' ground game, making them one-dimensional. The Seahawks also probably need Mike Davis back in the lineup at halfback, which may or may not happen, depending on his health.
Kevin Seifert, national NFL writer: Vikings over Falcons. Minnesota has the pass rush and secondary to slow down the Falcons' newly lethal offense. If anyone can lock down Julio Jones, it's Xavier Rhodes -- with safety
Harrison Smith over the top as needed. (That will be a dream wide receiver-cornerback matchup, by the way.) The Vikings should be able to run on the Falcons' defense, which has allowed 112.3 rushing yards per game during a three-game winning streak -- a key part of winning a physical road game.
Bowen: Teddy Bridgewater. Even with Case Keenum leading a first-place ballclub in the NFC North, there was talk of Bridgewater taking over as the No.1. Look for both Keenum and Sam Bradford to hit the market this offseason. And it could be Keenum cashing in if he continues to play good football while leading this team to the postseason dance.
Clay: Bridgewater. Minnesota is getting good quarterback play from Keenum but still seems to have the itch to start Bridgewater. Demetri Goodson Authentic Jersey That said, I think Authentic Matthew Stafford Jersey the former first-round pick ends up under center in Week 1 with both Bradford and Keenum competing for starting gigs elsewhere. Keenum very well could re-sign with Minnesota, but barring disaster, his strong play this http://www.authenticjetshockeyshop.com/-37-connor-hellebuyck-jersey_c-449.html season will probably earn him a clearer path to a starting job elsewhere.
Foxworth: Keenum is my guess. But I am not confident. Both Keenum and Bridgewater will Authentic Louis Williams Jersey be free agents in 2018, so it'll be an interesting offseason in Minnesota. I'm betting http://www.authenticsabresprostore.com/authentic-16-pat-lafontaine-jersey.html that Keenum will be able to sustain this high level of production for the rest of the season, and I can't imagine a franchise moving on from a proven option at the most important position.
