NFL Week 13 picks 2012

I’m picking the Bills to win this week. I probably shouldn’t. Not by a touchdown, even at home.

It could be something about former coach Mike Mularkey coming back for a visit. Maybe it’s that it’d be so “Bills” to lay a goose egg last week in a game they need and then come out and win this week when it’s too late.

Chad Henne nearly beat Houston in his first week replacing Blaine Gabbert as Jacksonville’s quarterback and he got a win over Tennessee last week. But the Jaguars gave up seven sacks last week to a Titans team that only had 16 sacks in weeks 1-11. Buffalo’s defensive line should have a good day.

If the rain that’s forecasted comes down hard enough to limit the passing games, I like a heavy dose of C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson a lot more than Rashad Jennings, who starts this week for Jacksonville after Maurice Jone-Drew and Jalen Parmele were lost to injury.
