Start ‘Em

Seattle Seahawks v. Cardinals

Seattle’s defense has been strong this season. Combine that with the fact that the Cardinals offense has been fairly sad, and you have great potential.


Tampa Bay Bucs v. Eagles

The Bucs defense has struggled this season. However, nothing can lift defensive spirits like a shot at beating up on a bad team. The eagles have been surrendering the 2nd most points to D/STs this season. Philly is dealing with widespread injuries on offense and are starting a rookie QB.


Cleveland Browns v. Chiefs

The Chiefs have been the team most battered by defenses this season. They are giving up an average of 12.0 points to the D/ST spot. The Browns are a solid play in Week 14.



Sit ‘Em

Philadelphia Eagles @ Bucs

This Eagles defense has really been a letdown in 2012. They just can’t get it done. Look for them to struggle against a surging Tampa Bay offense.


Houston Texans @ Patriots

The Texans defense has been great this season. However, they are facing a brutal New England offense that will put points on the board no matter what. A terrifying stat….opposing defenses facing the Pats are averaging -1.3 points per game this season. Ouch.
