NFL Week 13 picks

Whatever thin playoff hopes the Bills (5-6) have left are on the line this week against the Tennessee Titans (6-5). With a loss, we’ll be out of the hunt and looking ahead to the draft. With a win, we won’t be sure what to do. If the season were to end now, the Bills would draft 15th.

The Bills are 0-3 against the Titans in the last decade. With Tennessee looking to make a run at Houston in the AFC South and the reemergence of Chris Johnson (190- and 130-yard performances in two of the last three weeks) — plus the downright uncertainty of the Bills — I’ll take the Titans and the points.
