Yet another losing week (3-4-1) brings the sure-fire pick’s season total to 58-60-2. It’s hard to believe the record once stood at 40-24. The sure-fire picks must finish the season with a winning record so rest assured that these picks are solid.

Philip and the Chargers will stick a fork in the Titans Christmas day.

San Diego at Tennessee (-3), 7:30 p.m. Friday

The Titans have been on a nice run of late but not as nice as the Chargers, winners of nine straight. I was surprised to see the Titans are favored by a field goal here. The Chargers will win outright. Chargers +3.

Kansas City at Cincinnati (-13.5), 1 p.m. Sunday

The Chiefs have burned me plenty of times this season and couldn’t even beat the Browns at home last week. Meanwhile, the Bengals nearly pulled an upset at San Diego and have a lot on the line here. Bengals -13.5.

Seattle at Green Bay (-14), 1 p.m. Sunday

The Seahawks got clobbered by the Buccaneers at home last week. Go ahead and read that first sentence again. That fact will not make for a pleasant trip to Lambeau Field Sunday. Packers -14.

Carolina @ NY Giants (-7), 1 p.m. Sunday

The Panthers put on a good show against the Vikings Monday, but it was just a mirage. The Giants are in do or die mode and will take care of business. It will be a long day for Panthers’ QB Matt Moore. Giants -7.

Tampa Bay at New Orleans (-14), 1 p.m. Sunday

After bursting out of the gates, the Saints have only won two of their past nine contests by more than 12 points. Alright, one of those was against the Bucs. Still, I think the Bucs will play with some passion here and keep it respectable. Bucs +14.

Denver at Philadelphia (-7), 4:15 p.m. Sunday

As expected, the Broncos fell off the cliff after a 6-0 start. The free fall will continue Sunday when they run into an Eagles team that has won five straight and has demolished their last three opponents. Eagles -7.

Dallas (-6.5) at Washington, 8:20 p.m. Sunday

The Redskins can’t possibly get embarrassed on national television two weeks in a row can they? Yes they can. Playing for a lame-duck coach, the Cowboys will clobber the hapless Skins. Cowboys -6.5

Minnesota (-7) at Chicago, 8:30 p.m. Monday

The last time the Bears scored more than 17 points in a football game we were all still preparing for the Thanksgiving holiday. Not a good sign with an angry Vikings’ defense coming into town. Vikings -7.
