Johnny G’s Week 14 NFL Picks

December 12th, 2009 by Johnny G | 5 Comments | Filed in Football, General


After an easy Monday Night winner on the Green Bay Packers, my record now stands at 11-5 overall. Lets get right to the Week 14 card.

Green Bay Packers(-4) over Chicago Bears/ 1pm Sunday

We are going to back the Packers again this Sunday as they take on a Bears team on the road, who could not put the Rams away. Last Sunday I told you the Bears would not be able to distance themselves from the Rams because of the running game disparity and that’s exactly what happened. This time we have a Bears team that is still struggling on both sides of the ball and Jay Cutler has still not improved. Forte is still not getting the job done on the ground and we have a defense with more injuries than ever before.

The Packers come into this game after an impressive victory on Monday night over the Baltimore Ravens. The final score did not indicate how badly Green Bay dominated this game. They jumped out to a 17-0 lead at halftime and completely stifled Joe Flacco and the Ravens offense. The one weakness of this Packers team the entire season has been their defense. Now that the defensive unit is pulling their own weight, this is very dangerous team and could cause issues in the playoffs for anyone who faces them. Aaron Rodgers continues to impress as his offensive line continues to improve. The group becomes more cohesive with each passing week. Donald Driver continues to prove his doubters wrong and Ryan Grant has done a fine job taking pressure off of Rodgers.

The Packers will be entirely too much for the Bears to handle on Sunday as the different blitzes and schemes from Dom Capers will have Cutler’s head spinning. Take the Packers minus the points as this one ends in a blowout.
