Week 13 did not end up being too lucky for me, but both my parents were born on the 14th, so hopefully things should go a little better this week.

Let's start with the 4:05 game on WAHU Fox27 between the Washington Redskins and the Oakland Raiders. Both of these teams played very well against some very good teams last week. The Raiders went in to Pittsburgh and beat the Steelers, and the Redskins nearly pulled off a huge upset against the undefeated Saints. The Skins have been playing a lot better lately and I know they've been terrible on the road this season, but I think they'll be able to go in to Oakland and pick up a win.

Moving to the 1:00 game on CBS19, a good one here between the AFC North leading Bengals and the NFC North leading Vikings. The Vikings have not lost a game at home all season. That dome is going to be really loud on Sunday, and I think the Vikings stay perfect at home with a win.

Finishing up with the 4:15 game on CBS19, the San Diego Chargers taking on the Dallas Cowboys. You've probably heard by now that the Cowboys are really bad in December. You may not have heard that the Chargers are really good in December. They have won 15 straight in the month of December and I think they'll extend the Cowboys December woes on Sunday.
