The Cleveland Browns saved their season with a Week 11 win on Thursday night over Pittsburgh but also lost star defensive end Myles Garrett to a season-ending suspension as he hit Steelers QB Mason Rudolph over the head with Rudolph’s own helmet. Garrett is appealing the suspension and will have a hearing Wednesday.
Don’t expect the appeal to be successful. Here’s a look at every NFL Week 12 game with Mybookie NFL odds and an ATS picks.
2019 NFL Week 12 Odds, Overview & Predictions for Each Game
Indianapolis at Houston (-3.5)
Thursday night game with solo first place in the AFC South on the line. The Colts have won the past three in the series, including 30-23 earlier this season as Jacoby Brissett had a career-high four touchdown passes and outplayed Deshaun Watson. NFL Week 12 Pick: Colts.
Miami at Cleveland (-10.5)Browns are on extra rest after winning last Thursday over Pittsburgh. Cleveland will be without two defensive linemen in former No. 1 overall pick Garrett (mentioned above) and Larry Ogunjobi.
The latter got a one-game suspension for his role in a brawl vs. the Steelers. Pick: Dolphins.
Denver at Buffalo (-4.5)Don’t look for much scoring in this one. The Broncos managed to blow a 20-0 halftime lead at the Vikings on Sunday and lose, while the Bills torched the Dolphins.
Josh Allen completed 21-of-33 passes for 256 yards and three touchdowns while adding seven carries for an additional 56 yards and a touchdown. NFL Week 12 Pick: Bills.
Pittsburgh at Cincinnati (-6.5)
The Bengals remain the NFL’s only winless team. Rookie Ryan Finley was not good in Sunday’s loss at Oakland. Finley completed 13-of-31 passes for 115 yards and one pick.
Cincinnati’s only touchdown occurred with a short field following Josh Jacobs’ fumble on the 15-yard line. Pick: Steelers.
NY Giants at Chicago (-6.5)
The Giants come out of their bye week on a six-game skid, while Chicago’s season basically ended Sunday in a 17-7 loss at the Rams. QB Mitchell Trubisky was pulled late, allegedly because of an injury. He will start this one if healthy according to Matt Nagy. Pick: Giants.
Oakland at NY Jets (+3)
Josh Jacobs rushed 23 times for 112 yards in Oakland’s Week 11 win over the Bengals. It was hit fourth 100-yard performance this season, moving ahead of Marcus Allen for the most such games by a rookie in club history. Jacobs is the clear Offensive Rookie of the Year favorite. NFL Week 12 Pick: Jets.
Carolina at New Orleans (-9.5)
First meeting of season between NFC South rivals. Carolina QB Kyle Allen was brutal in Sunday’s home upset loss to the Falcons with four picks. Meanwhile, the Saints had little trouble winning at Tampa Bay. Pick: Saints.
Tampa Bay at Atlanta (-4)
Two NFC South teams just playing ot the string. Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan passed for 311 yards with one touchdown and zero interceptions for a 111.1 rating in the Falcons’ 29-3 win at Carolina on Sunday.
Ryan, currently in his 12th season, has 60 career games with at least 300 passing yards and joins Drew Brees (67 games) as the only quarterbacks with at least 60 such games in their first 12 seasons in NFL history. Pick: Falcons.
Detroit at Washington (+3)
Two last-place teams. Will the Lions get starting QB Matthew Stafford back? He has missed the previous two games with a back injury. Coach Matt Patricia said Stafford (back) remains week to week. Backup QB Jeff Driskel has performed admirably in Stafford’s absence, particularly against the Cowboys in Week 11.
Overall, Driskel completed 15-of-26 passes for 209 yards and a pair of scores through the air while adding an additional 51 yards and another touchdown on the ground. NFL Week 12 Pick: Redskins.
Seattle at Philadelphia (-2)
Big game in the NFC playoff race. Seahawks off their bye, while the Eagles were home losers Sunday to New England. Eagles Pro Bowl right tackle Lane Johnson (concussion) is in the league’s protocol.
It would obviously be a huge loss for the Eagles if Johnson isn’t cleared for Week 12 against Seattle and stud pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney. Pick: Eagles.
Jacksonville at Tennessee (-3)
Teams met in Week 3 and Jags won 20-7. Gardner Minshew threw two touchdown passes and should have had a third. He’s no longer starting for the Jags. Marcus Mariota was sacked nine times, but he has since been benched by the Titans. Pick: Titans.
Dallas at New England (-6)
Potential Super Bowl preview, and it would shatter all sorts of TV ratings and betting handle records if so. Dak Prescott’s 841 passing yards in the last two games are the most in consecutive games by a quarterback in Cowboys history.
New England comes off a comeback win over Philadelphia. NFL Week 12 Pick: Patriots.
Green Bay at San Francisco (-3)
This game was flexed into the Sunday night window as the teams lead their respective divisions and are battling for the top seed in the NFC playoffs. Bit of advantage for the Packers here as they come off their bye week. Pick: Packers.
Baltimore at LA Rams (+3)
Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has become the NFL MVP favorite. Jackson has recorded at least 60 rushing yards in seven consecutive games, surpassing Michael Vick (six games in 2004) for the longest such streak by a quarterback in league annals. Pick: Rams.
