Week 13 NFL picks and predictions: Dolphins beat 49ers; Cowboys crush Colts; Browns win Deshaun Watson return

NFL week 13 schedule contains six games against teams with winning records, including an AFC championship rematch, a potential Super Bowl preview, and an unexpected emphasis on an NFC East rivalry.

The Chiefs take on the Bengals at 4:25 p.m. at Paul Brown Stadium in what should be the finest game of the weekend. Last year, Cincinnati defeated Kansas City in both the regular season and the playoffs, and Patrick Mahomes II and Joe Burrow should put on an offensive display.

In the afternoon, the Dolphins and 49ers face off in a clash of Super Bowl contenders. The offensive chess match between 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan and former San Francisco offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel should be intriguing.

The most important game in the early window may be an NFC East clash between the Giants and the Commanders. Both are still in the running for a wild card spot in their stacked division. Other matchups featuring winning teams include the Bills-Patriots, Titans-Eagles, and Jets-Vikings.

That’s a good weekend with a few tough selections as a result. Consider our record this season:

109-70-1 record

Here are our Week 13 straight-up picks.

Week 13 NFL picks and predictions:

  • Buffalo Bills (-5.5) at New England Patriots,

Thursday, 8:15 p.m., Prime Video

After the Thanksgiving night drama with the Lions, the Bills had some additional time off. Buffalo is 5-5-1 against the spread. The Patriots can stop the run, but Josh Allen’s mobility provides a different issue. In its last three games, New England has averaged only 71.3 rushing yards per game. That will not work in the Bills’ favor. At Gillette Stadium, Buffalo wins for the third year in a row.

Bills 27, Patriots 17.

  • Atlanta Falcons vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (-1.5)

CBS, 1 p.m. Sunday

The Falcons have lost three of their last four games, and their offense has only averaged 18 points per game during that time. Pittsburgh is coming off a short week, but the offense has improved. The Steelers can win this road game with their defense. Get the value right now.

Steelers 25, Falcons 18.

  • Baltimore Ravens vs. Denver Broncos (-8)

CBS, 1 p.m. Sunday

The Ravens were stunned by the Jaguars in Week 12, but they have won back-to-back games following each of their previous three losses. Against Denver, Lamar Jackson should be able to choose his spots. In their previous three losses, the Broncos have averaged only 12 points per game, with the defense forcing only two turnovers.

Ravens 26, Broncos 13.

  • Green Bay Packers (-1.5) at Chicago Bears,

1 p.m. Sunday, Fox

In this game, who are the quarterbacks? Aaron Rodgers (ribs) and Justin Fields (shoulder) are both injured. Will it instead be Nathan Peterman vs. Jordan Love? In any case, neither of these clubs will be able to halt the run. The previous two games, Chicago has given up 153.5 running yards. The Packers have been worse the previous two weeks, with a score of 225.5. It’s an ugly game that the Bears could win, but we’ll take the Packers in a tight one.

Packers 28, Bears 26.

  • Jacksonville Jaguars (-1) at Detroit Lions,

1 p.m. Sunday, Fox

There is hope for progress in both locations. Jacksonville is 2-5 in games decided by seven points or fewer, although the previous two have been wins. Con? On the road, the Jaguars are 1-4 S/U. In addition, Detroit is 2-5 in games decided by seven points or fewer. Someone has to come out on top, right? We’re sticking with the home team.

Lions 29, Jaguars 28.

  • Houston Texans (-7) vs Cleveland Browns

Fox, 1 p.m. Sunday

Deshaun Watson returns after an 11-game ban to face his former club. How much of a distraction will it be for Cleveland, which is coming off a thrilling overtime win against Tampa Bay? The Texans have averaged 28.5 yards per carry in their previous two games. Can they keep the streak going long enough to ruin Watson’s debut?

Browns 30, Texans 20.

  • Minnesota Vikings vs. New York Jets (-3)

CBS, 1 p.m. Sunday

With Mike White as quarterback, the Jets have gotten back on track, and they are 5-4 ATS as an underdog. The Vikings also re-calibrated with a Thanksgiving victory over the Patriots. Although the duel between Justin Jefferson and Sauce Gardner is compelling, Minnesota has other choices at home.

Minnesota 24, New York 20

  • Fox, Washington Commanders (-1.5) vs New York Giants

Sunday, 1 p.m.  Fox

It’s A.J. Brown’s game. The Eagles’ standout receiver was acquired in a trade with Tennessee and has proven to be a game changer for Jalen Hurts. Brown’s stats have been modest over the previous four weeks (14 catches, 162 yards, 2 TDs). In this one, he clears 100 yards. Derrick Henry’s comeback game keeps Tennessee in the game, but the Eagles stay hot at home.

Eagles 27, Titans 23.

  • Los Angeles Rams (-5.5) at Seattle Seahawks

Fox, 4:05 p.m. on Sunday

This line has risen by half a point. Seattle let a game slip away against the Raiders in Week 12, but there is a chance to make amends against the Rams. Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp’s injuries have destroyed the offense. Bryce Perkins should get another chance, but the Seahawks will fix their faults in front of Geno Smith. This season, Los Angeles is a league-worst 2-7-2 ATS.

Seahawks 28, Rams 17.

  • San Francisco 49ers vs. Miami Dolphins (-3.5)

Fox, 4:05 p.m. on Sunday

How entertaining will this game be? McDaniel takes the high-powered Miami offense on the road to face his old coach Shanahan, and both teams are on a roll. Miami has a five-game winning streak. San Francisco has four games left. The 49ers will try to limit the Dolphins’ passing attack, which ranks second in the NFL with 291.9 yards per game. Christian McCaffrey and Jeff Wilson Jr., who signed deadline deals, will, however, determine which way this one goes. Is this a possible Super Bowl preview?

Dolphins 28, 49ers 27.

  • CBS, Kansas City Chiefs (-2.5) vs Cincinnati Bengals

Sunday, 4:25 p.m.

Who has more to prove in this situation? The Bengals have won three consecutive games without Ja’Marr Chase, who blasted the Chiefs for 266 yards in this game last season, and they might get into the mix for AFC home-field advantage today. The Chiefs are road favorites, and they are 3-1 S/U as such this season. Given what transpired in the AFC title game last season, Kansas City may have more to prove.

Chiefs 30, Bengals 26.

  • Los Angeles Chargers vs. Las Vegas Raiders (-2.5)

CBS, 4:25 p.m. Sunday

The Chargers won an exciting game between the clubs in Week 1, and the rematch looks to be just as exciting. The Raiders have won two straight and are 3-1 ATS this season as underdogs. The past two matches in Las Vegas went into overtime, with each team winning one. Will the Raiders go to a fourth overtime game? So why not?

Raiders 29, Chargers 26.

  • Dallas Cowboys vs. Indianapolis Colts

Sunday at 8:20 p.m. on NBC

The Cowboys are huge favorites at home, and this is another game where Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard will pound the ball against a middle-of-the-road Indianapolis run defense. In its previous four games, Dallas has averaged 169.8 yards running. The Colts showed fight on Saturday with interim coach Jeff, but it won’t be enough against Dallas.

Cowboys 32, Colts 23.

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New Orleans Saints

ESPN, Monday at 8:15 p.m.

Despite the humiliating loss to the Browns, the Buccaneers still lead the NFC South Division. With six straight triumphs, the Saints have been a thorn in Tom Brady’s side over the previous three years. It’s a tense rivalry and a must-win game for the Bucs. Brady puts on a show in what could be his final Monday Night Football appearance.

Buccaneers 23, Saints 21.

The best adds for week 17 of Fantasy Football 2022

The best adds for week 17 of Fantasy Football 2022

Time to open week 17 of the 2022 NFL season with a lot of things to settle in our beloved league before the postseason begins. There are still open wild card spots left and some divisions have yet to know their winners. With only two rounds left in the regular season, we will still see “fights” on several fronts.

In our favorite virtual game, things are a little different. It is time for the grand finals in most fantasy football leagues, with some GMs still fighting for “bronze medals” and others for better placements. And since nobody likes to lose, today’s tips are not only for the grand finalists, but for everyone trying to finish higher on the “podiums”.

Whether it is to compete for the grand final or even an honorable third place, the waiver wire is once again necessary for those who aim to strengthen their team with an eye on the most important duel of the whole season. So, once again The Playoffs is here, being your best friend to help you find a good name to replace a considerable loss or even a player hidden in the huge waiver wire list that can contribute to your success in the “hour of truth”.

It’s worth remembering that you can’t be too careful when giving up a name in order to add a player via waivers, since placing a certain athlete on the market can mean an unwanted improvement to an opposing team.

To be eligible in our list, players have to be on, at most, 60% of the Fantasy Football squads, which is the most popular and famous platform among Brazilians.

It is also possible that the names mentioned here are in a higher or lower percentage of squads in other applications, such as Yahoo, ESPN and Sleeper, although the tendency is that the average is similar.

Again, we reiterate that we use as a parameter the PPR score (when points are computed per reception), again because it is the standard and most famous model, currently, of the game, having stolen the “crown” of the old Standard (or non-PPR) in recent years.

With that and without further ado, let’s get to the names for the week 17 – FOR TITLE MY FRIENDS!


Tyler Allgeier – Atlanta Falcons (17.3% rostered*)

With four consecutive losses in the league and no chance of qualifying for the playoffs, the Atlanta Falcons are no longer contending for big things this year. Therefore, after the bye week, who has been gaining space in the team round after round is running back Tyler Allgeier. The freshman is increasingly participating in snaps and his number of carries has increased significantly, with him passing for 100 rushing yards in Week 15 on 17 attempts, and reaching 74 yards on 18 attempts in Week 16. The number of passes received by the youngster has also skyrocketed, with him managing four receptions for 43 yards in the last round, in five times he was targeted. The Falcons face the Arizona Cardinals, who are also not contending for anything this season and have one of the worst defenses against the run game in the entire NFL. Allgeier should deliver good points. Add him if he is available.

James Cook – Buffalo Bills (33.8% rostered)

The Bills are already guaranteed in the playoffs and have clinched the AFC East. The team is still aiming for the bye week in the first round of playoffs and for that they need to keep winning their games. Another point that Buffalo wants to find a solution for is in the ground game, perhaps the only weak point of a team that has been completely well put together so far. And that’s where James Cook comes in, who is increasingly involved in the team’s offensive game and has been matching up well. In the last game against the Chicago Bears, there were 11 attempts for 99 yards and a ground TD for the No. 28, who has been getting more and more involved and tends to take over the backfield of the team in the playoffs. He should continue to be very active and could be an important player to add to your roster.

*Percentage of teams in official NFL Fantasy leagues that have this athlete on their roster


Isaiah Hodgins – New York Giants (0.3% rostered)

The Giants are still in contention. The team’s defense has grown in production and, amazingly, Daniel Jones has been taking good care of the oval ball and making interesting starts. With the QB well protected and able to find passes, a name that has been gaining more and more action in New York’s offense is Isaiah Hodgins, who has had plenty of offensive carries in the team’s last four games. All right, the commitment now is against the Indianapolis Colts’ secondary, which is one of the strongest against wide receivers, but Hodgins is becoming Jones’ ball security and in a team that needs to win to keep dreaming, the trend is good passes from the QB to the WR. Keep an eye on him.

Jahan Dotson – Washington Commanders (7.9% rostered)

A name mentioned last week that is once again being remembered in this column due to the Washington Commanders WR’s great form. Shrouded in expectations before the season started, Dotson did not mesh well early in the year with Carson Wentz, but when the former Eagles and Colts player got injured and Taylor Heinicke took over the quarterback spot for the Commanders, Dotson’s numbers skyrocketed and the WR started to show up even more than Curtis Samuel, who was Wentz’s safety ball in the first few games of the 2022 NFL season. The freshman is coming off TDs noted in Week 15 and 16 and with a good load. He should continue to be important for Washington this final stretch, even if Wentz returns to the team as he did last round.


Cole Kmet – Chicago Bears (57.0% rostered)

That the Bears have grown during the year and displayed a better game than what we saw in the first half of the season, that no one can deny. The growth came mainly through Justin Fields, who overnight changed “from water to wine” and started to show good numbers throwing and running the ball, which we had not seen until then in the career of the once promising QB drafted by Chicago. With Fields’ growth, the direct beneficiary was TE Cole Kmet, who got a lot of carries and a significant gain in offensive carries, becoming one of the main, if not the main, offensive weapon of the Bears. In Week 17, Kmet faces the defense of the Denver Broncos, one of the worst teams in the league and the 5th worst in scoring TEs.

Juwan Johnson – New Orleans Saints (12.5% rostered)

Another name repeated around here. Juwan Johnson has grown quite a bit, especially after Michael Thomas got injured and is out for the rest of the season. As Chris Olave also suffers from physical problems, Johnson is gaining ground in the New Orleans offense and has been showing good rapport with Andy Dalton. The Saints were virtually eliminated, but managed to grow, recovered and are now fighting for a wild card spot, or even the division, since the leader Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been skating. Keep an eye on Juwan Johnson, who should have plenty of carries in this final stretch of the season.


Brock Purdy – San Francisco 49ers (27.3% rostered)

A regular around here, Brock Purdy was a real find for the San Francisco 49ers the year after the injuries to Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo. I’ll say it again, the 49ers have one of the most organized teams in the entire league, with a super protective offensive line, great receivers, healthy George Kittle blocking and receiving passes, and the “icing on the cake” Christian McCaffrey, who came in during the year, running the ball or receiving passes. With so many standouts around, Purdy has stepped in and has been doing his job, keeping California’s team as one of the favorites to win the title. Some say that the team has been playing even better than when Jimmy G was the starter.

With so many lures, it is easier for Brock Purdy to find free receivers, making important points in the FF. Add him, it’s the last chance.

None of Matt Ryan, Sam Ehlinger, or Nick Foles is a solution for the Colts.



None of Matt Ryan, Sam Ehlinger, or Nick Foles is a solution for the Colts.

None of Matt Ryan, Sam Ehlinger, or Nick Foles is a solution for the Colts.

Jeff Saturday made one last adjustment. It was ineffective.

With the Indianapolis Colts’ offense sputtering, Saturday made the decision to activate Nick Foles as the starting quarterback for their game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Matt Ryan’s deterioration has been evident in recent weeks, as the Colts have struggled to move the ball down the field. Saturday believed Foles may provide a spark to the offense moving forward.

The Colts were defeated 20-3 by the Chargers despite only managing 173 yards of total offense. Foles struggled throughout the whole game, going 17 of 29 (59%) for 143 yards, three interceptions, and a 31.9 quarterback rating. For the majority of the evening, Foles resembled the third-string quarterback the Colts have used for the majority of the season.

Despite all the speculation about how Foles might assist the Colts in moving the ball down the field, nothing of the kind occurred Monday night. Michael Pittman Jr.’s 19-yard reception was the game’s longest play. The Colts had a dismal 0-10 record on third down. The only team this season with a worse third down conversion rate? The Colts lost to the New England Patriots in Week 9 and finished with a record of 0-14.

After the game, Saturday stated, “Pretty straightforward – can’t turn it over.” You know, you can’t leave the defense on the field, so you have to convert on third downs offensively, get them off the field.

Again attempting to bear the burden, the Chargers’ quarterback Justin Herbert was sacked four times and forced into two fumbles. However, it is hard to compete when the offense is as terrible as it was on Monday night.

Foles said, “I believe we never found a rhythm as an offense. “I believe the points are clear. Three points is never going to be sufficient, to be honest. As a result, our offensive never really found its groove. And the quarterback is where it all begins. We also need to play well the whole game to attempt to establish a rhythm.

The truth is that under these conditions, Foles was never going to succeed. You can discuss Foles’ incredible 2017 campaign, in which he entered at the tail end of the campaign and guided the Philadelphia Eagles to a championship. However, Foles was surrounded that season by a fantastic Eagles squad. Not the Colts.

The Colts’ protection problems again as they allowed seven sacks in the game. The Colts have already allowed 56 sacks in 2022, and they are currently on track to surpass the previous high mark set by the team in a single season. Even while Saturday suggested that some of those sacks could have resulted from field coverage further back, Foles’ pocket continued to open up fast.

Along with playing alongside players he is still getting acquainted to, Foles was under pressure for the duration of the game. Early last week, it was made public that before the Chargers game, Foles will practice with the starting offense for the first time. Alec Pierce, Parris Campbell, and Pittman received some of his few passes.

The moment a shift occurs, Foles said, “you step in and try to become acclimated as fast as you can and, you know, get the timing down and everything.” “Our practice week was incredibly productive. It’s disappointing that the execution fell short of what we required to win this game.

It was almost hard for Foles to walk in and perform effectively in that circumstance. When you add it to the experienced quarterback’s poor choices and misfires, the offense had the worst appearance in the NFL. The Denver Broncos, the only club with a lower scoring average (15.5) than the Indianapolis Colts (16.5), at least managed to score a touchdown in their lopsided defeat to the Los Angeles Rams. After the game, their head coach was sacked as well.

The Colts’ roster contains no quarterbacks who can save this squad. Father Time has finally caught up with Ryan, who now throws with little to no velocity, struggles to handle the football, and appears to be moving more slowly than ever. Despite having a better arm, Foles struggles to move properly and makes terrible judgments while playing football with players with whom he has barely ever practiced.

You might argue that having Sam Ehlinger start again would be beneficial, but there is little hope that he would inspire the offense either. Early in the season, Ehlinger made two starts and went winless, including the humiliating loss in New England that ended the reign of previous head coach Frank Reich. Ehlinger is still the backup quarterback because evidently Saturday and the rest of the staff do not believe he can do any better.

Because the rest of the offense is a disaster, none of these quarterbacks are the solution. There are still protection difficulties with the offensive line, tight ends, and running backs. Defenses are sitting on every route because the Colts’ passing strategy and play-calling are so basic. None of the three quarterbacks can improve the offense to a level that would offset these problems.

Unfortunately, the crime cannot be corrected this year. For the Colts to have a reliable attack once more, new coaches and players at crucial spots are required. Expect a lot of the same play from this unit during the next two games up to that point.

JJ Watt announces NFL retirement

JJ Watt announces NFL retirement

JJ Watt is hanging up his boots. On Tuesday (27), the Arizona Cardinals defensive end announced that he is retiring from the NFL, via a post on Twitter.

“Koa’s (defensive end’s daughter) first NFL game, last home game of my career,” wrote the star, posing in photos alongside his daughter and wife, Chicago Red Stars forward Kealia. “My heart is filled with nothing less than love and gratitude. It has been an absolute honor and pleasure.”

A three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, Watt is a future Hall of Famer. He was the 11th overall pick in the 2011 Draft by the Houston Texans. There, he played until the end of the 2020 season, when he announced his move to Arizona.

In Texas, he played 128 games, including eight for the playoffs, adding 21 more for the Cardinals, one of them for the postseason, in last year’s Wild Card round against the Los Angeles Rams. In all, there are 149 starters on the field, 111.5 sacks, 580 tackles, 191 tackles for loss of yardage, 313 QB hits, one safety, and two interceptions.

When it comes to awards, the list is also extensive. He was three times named AP Defensive Player of the Year (2013, 2015 and 2016), once Walter Payton Man of the Year (2018), 2017 Sportsman of the Year, five times selected to the Pro Bowl (2012 to 2015 and 2018) and six times to the All-Pro team (2012 to 2015 and 2018).
