10 in a row. Let’s end the season on a high note.
1. Denver over Kansas City – The Broncos have something to play for, and with the Jets flexed into the night game, that will remain the case even with a 4 o’clock kickoff. And a matchup against the Chiefs is among the juiciest possible games. So if you’ve saved the Broncos to this point, it will pay off.
2. San Francisco over St. Louis – The 49ers are playing for 8-8, and the Rams need a loss to lock up the No. 1 pick. This is a mismatch in which the motivations seem clear, and that makes it a solid pick.
3. San Diego over Washington – The Chargers have nothing to play for, but the Redskins have all but quit on head coach Jim Zorn. That, plus the cross-country trip, should be enough for even San Diego’s B team to get a win.
Trap to avoid – Indianapolis at Buffalo – This looks like an easy pick, but with the Colts pulling back the reins, any road game is dicey. So just stay away.
