2012 4-Caster Frank's NFL Picks
WEEK 9
Chargers 24 Chiefs 13
A loss against the Chiefs, and Chargers fans may get their wish that Norv Turner is fired. The bad news is they are playing the Chiefs and that means another job saving win, as the Chargers continue to torment their fans with bad losses and strong primetime rebounds. This is a rebound game as the Chiefs are an even bigger mess.

Ravens 27 Browns 16
After a bye week, the Ravens get a chance to heal aand adjust to the loss or Webb and Lewis. Coming back against the Browns should give a chance to get on track with an easy win.

Packers 24 Cardinals 10
After a 4-0 start the Cardinals have lost four straight, the Packers with three straight wins are going in the right direction. This game is at Lambeau Field and the Cardinals offensive line is beyond awful. QB John Skelton should be happy if he survives the game in one piece.
Bye Week
-3
Titans 20 Bears 17
Last week the Bears barely escaped a home loss to the Panthers, this tells me this is a team ready to lose a game, the Titans have played well recently and getting the Bears at home serves the perfect upset possibility.

Broncos 34 Bengals 13
You got to have the feeling that the Broncos are on a run as Peyton Manning and the Broncos receivers get more and more comfortable working together every week. The Bengals meanwhile appear to be off in every aspect of the game and are even playing bad at home.
-12
Texans 31 Bills 10
The Texans have steamrolled through the first half, and coming off their bye week I don't see that changing as the Bills will provide little obstacle to the Texans reach 7-1.

Colts 20 Dolphins 16
With Ryan Tannehill banged up the match up of top ten draft pick quarterbacks could be spoiled. However, with the way Andrew Luck has played at home the Colts would have the edge any way, though it will be close.
-4
Lions 30 Jaguars 17
Last week the Lions got one of those wins that can turn around a season, the Jaguars meanwhile are banged up and hoping to talk the Jets into trading them Tim Tebow, this battle of cats won't even be close as the Lions win easily.
Redskins 24 Panthers 20
Its Cam vs RGIII in a battle of athletic running quarterbacks with the Heisman Trophy in their back pockets. Cam Newton has had trouble equaling any thing he did last year, while RGIII has equaled the hype. With the game in Washington and the Redskins having better players i see Cam's frustrations continue s Robert Griffin III get the win.


Raiders 23 Buccaneers 17
It's hard to believe it's been a decade since the Chucky Bowl. Since then both teams have taken on water, with the Bucs not winning a playoff game while the Raiders have not even sniffed the postseason, both teams now are hit or miss, but the Raiders defense has come on as of late, and they will win again Sunday.

-12
Sehawks 24 Vikings 13
Both these teams had terrible losses last week, with the Vikings laying a Thursday Night stinker at home, while the Seahawks lost a heartbreaker on the road. The Vikings play is more troubling as QB Christian Ponder has made terrible decisions, against the Seahawks secondary with the pressure of Century Link's 12th man and that means doom for the Vikings. 


Giants 31 Steelers 24
The Steelers may have won their last two games, but the longer they play without Troy Polamalu you know they are on borrowed time, going into the Meadowlands against the surging Giants is not the time to miss a key defensive back. Look for a big game from Eli Manning, as the Giants win an exciting game by a touchdown.


-4
Falcons 27 Cowboys 10
The Falcons at 7-0 have played better on the road than at home, however with a primetime microscope I sense a big game coming s they roll over the disjointed Cowboys,

Saints 37 Eagles 27
Two teams whose seasons are about to slip away meet on Monday Night. The Saints know they can count on QB Drew Brees, while everything seems to be unraveling for the Eagles. The Andy Reid era appears to be coming to a crashing end as the Saints march to a win.
