NFL Week 14 picks: Our predictions for every game on the slate

BY Zack Pierce • December 14, 2016

Chase and WhatIfSports tied at 11-4 to pace the group in Week 13. Overall leader Andrew went 10-5 to maintain his seven-game lead over Smiley, who also went 10-5. Dieter and Schrager were both 9-6.

We turn the page to Week 14, and all bye weeks are over. A full 16 games in action as teams make their final pushes for the playoffs.

Locks of the Week: For perhaps the first time in human history, a 1-11 team is a unanimous pick to win. That's because the 49ers are hosting the similarly woeful Jets, who are 3-9 and also eliminated from playoff contention. The Chiefs and Lions at home and the Falcons on the road against the Rams were also picked across the board.

Bold Choice of the Week: With Rob Gronkowski out and their kryptonite (the Ravens) coming to town, the Patriots are a trendy upset pick, despite still being 7-point favorites. And three people jumped on it this week, thinking New England will disappoint in the Monday night spotlight.

Surprise of the Week: Not a single panelist picked the 10-2 Raiders — currently the AFC's No. 1 overall seed — on the road in Kansas City in the Thursday nighter.

Let's get to the picks. (Mobile users flip to landscape mode to view.)
