Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL Predictions

Welcome to Week 12 of the 2021 NFL season as this is Thanksgiving week. With that, the NFL got you covered with three games to enjoy. Week 11 finally saw me come out with a positive record. My record was 5-2 and my overall mark went to 51-36, The winning percentage jumped from 57.5 to 58.6%. Last week, we saw the continued dominance by the Patriots defense as they shutout the Falcons. Indianapolis made a statement by going to Buffalo and beating down the Bills. The Chiefs defense continues to show they’re one of the best by holding the Dallas offense in check. The Titans fell to the Houston Texans as the offense continues to struggle without Derrick Henry. This week with it being Thanksgiving, I’ll be predicting a total of 11 games. Let’s get started!

 

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL PredictionsDaddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL PredictionsWe start things off with the first Thanksgiving Day game between two NFC North rivals. The Chicago Bears will head to Detroit to battle the winless Lions. The big news coming out of Chicago is the fate of their coach as many believe Matt Nagy will get fired. The Bears have dropped five in a row after a brutal stretch where all they teams are potential playoffs squads. The Bears turn to Andy Dalton as Justin Fields will be sidelined with injured ribs. Can the Bears end their losing streak? Detroit has improved ever since their blowout loss to Philadelphia. The defense has given up only 29 points in the games against Pittsburgh and Cleveland. Unfortunately, the offense has scored 26 points in those two games. Could this be the week they finally win a game? I’m going with the Bears in a close one. Chicago Win 20-17

The Las Vegas Raiders will take a trip to Dallas to battle the Cowboys. While these two franchises are linked as being two of the bigger names in the league, they’re headed in opposite directions. The Raiders were once atop of their division, but three consecutive losses have them third. The offense is scoring just a little over 14 a game and the defense can’t stop anyone during the streak. On the other hand, Dallas was viewed as one of the best in the NFC heading into Week 11. They have dropped two of three with them putting up 25 points in those two losses. Which Dallas team will show up on Thanksgiving? I’m thinking they will beat the Raiders in this one. Dallas Win 34-20

 

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL PredictionsDaddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL PredictionsThe third and final game on Thanksgiving will feature two playoff hopefuls. The Buffalo Bills will travel down south to New Orleans to face the Saints. After alternating wins and losses over their last 6 games, the Bills find themselves in the final Wild Card spot. They were ran all over by Jonathon Taylor and the Colts last week as they were blown out by Indianapolis. If this team envision a Super Bowl run, they must turn it around now. New Orleans continues to battle injuries all on the offense and they’ll be without Alvin Kamara again. The Saints enter this game on a 3-game losing streak. They currently find themselves holding onto the final Wild Card spot also. This should be a great game, but I’m picking the Bills to edge the Saints. Buffalo Win 30-27

 

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL PredictionsDaddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL PredictionsWe kick off the Sunday slate of game with a battle between AFC North rivals. The Pittsburgh Steelers will travel to Cincinnati to face the Bengals in a critical matchup. In a division where all the teams have winning records all these games are huge. Pittsburgh had their five game streak without a loss broken last Sunday night in a thriller against the Chargers. The defense should get some help with the returns of T.J. Watt, Minkah Fitzpatrick and Joe Haden. Will that be enough against the Bengals? Cincinnati ended their two game losing streak last week with a dominating win over the Raiders. How will this Bengals defense stack up against the Steelers offense? They are hoping for a repeat performance from earlier this season, but I’m picking the Steelers to win. Pittsburgh Win 23-21

 

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL PredictionsDaddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL PredictionsWe have a pretty interesting matchup here as the Indianapolis Colts host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Both of these teams are coming off impressive wins this past week. The Bucs ended their two game losing streak by beating the Giants on Monday. The Colts ran their winning streak to three by bulldozing the Bills in Buffalo. Tampa Bay is just trying to get healthier in these final six games. They have been decimated on both sides of the ball with the injury bug. They will have a tough one against this Colts team. Indianapolis have won five out of their last six games with that one loss against the Titans. Jonathon Taylor is looking like an MVP candidate after racking up 5 TDs last week. I’m on this Colts bandwagon, but think they’ll fall short in this one. Tampa Bay Win 26-24

 

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL PredictionsDaddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL PredictionsWe have a battle between arguably the two best teams in the AFC. The Tennessee Titans will travel to New England to face the Patriots. The Titans had their six game winning streak come to an end last week against the Houston Texans. They also waived Adrian Peterson as they hope the younger backs can carry the load in the absence of Derrick Henry. The offense has struggled in Henry’s absence and facing this Patriots defense will not help. Can the Titans get back on track? During the Patriots 5-game winning streak the defense has been amazing. In the last three games, they have given up only 13 points in total. With the Titans offense struggling, can they make it 6 in a row? Can the Patriots line protect Mac Jones? I’m riding with the Patriots in this one. New England Win 24-14

 

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL PredictionsDaddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL PredictionsWe have an AFC West matchup as the Los Angeles Chargers head to Denver to face the Broncos. The Chargers are one of the teams that’s holding down one of the Wild Card spots in the AFC. They are also a game behind the Chiefs for the division lead. Los Angeles has turned the corner by winning those close games they were losing a year ago. They put up an amazing performance in the Sunday night game against the Steelers. Justin Herbert continues to improve by leading this offense with his arm and legs. Denver is coming off their bye week after being blown out by the Eagles the week before. The offense struggled and the defense were bullied. Teddy Bridgewater will have to get this offense rolling if they’re going to keep up with the Chargers. This is a tough one, but I’m going with the Chargers. Los Angeles Win 27-24

 

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL PredictionsDaddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL PredictionsWe have a battle between two teams with hopes of still capturing the top spot in the NFC. The Los Angeles Rams will head to Green Bay to battle the Packers. The Rams went from being arguably the best team in the NFC to a 2-game losing streak. The once high powered offense has scored only 26 points in their last two games. Matthew Stafford has thrown 4 picks in those games and the defense is getting manhandled in the process. Can they turn it around? Green Bay is coming off a tough loss against Minnesota where Aaron Rodgers had his best game. The offense is clicking on all cylinders, but the defense was exposed last week. In a battle between two of the best QBs in the league, who leads their team to the win? I’m not picking against Rodgers so it’s the Packers for me. Green Bay Win 28-26

 

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL PredictionsDaddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL PredictionsWe have a battle between two NFC teams that’s right in the thick of things for a Wild Card spot. The Minnesota Vikings will head out west to face the San Francisco 49ers. Minnesota have won their last two games after dropping the previous pair. The offense has looked amazing with Kirk Cousins playing some of his best ball and Justin Jefferson being the beneficiary. The Vikings defense will need to step it up if they are going to leave with the win. Can Cousins continue his stellar play? The 49ers have won three of four games and the defense have given up only 20 points in the last two. Jimmy Garoppolo is playing well and the Niners are getting healthy. The teams are tied, but the Vikings are currently 6th in the NFC and the Niners being 8th. I’m picking the 49ers! San Francisco Win 31-27

 

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL PredictionsDaddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL PredictionsWe have the Sunday Night game between two AFC North rivals. The Cleveland Browns will travel to Baltimore to face the division leading Ravens. The Browns are in last place in the division, but they have an 6-5 record heading into this one. The Browns are only a game behind the leaders of the Wild Card and two behind the Ravens in the division. The offense has struggled the last two games as they have put up only 20 points combined. Can the Browns offense break out of their funk? Baltimore is currently tied with the Titans in the loss column for best record in the AFC. The Ravens are hoping to get some good news regarding Lamar Jackson. Jackson didn’t play last game due o a lung infection, but either way I’m picking the Ravens in this one. Baltimore Win 31-20

 

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL PredictionsDaddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 12 NFL PredictionsThe final game of the week is the Monday Night game of course. We have the Seattle Seahawks traveling cross country to face the Washington Football Team. Seattle is probably the most surprising team in the league for all the wrong reasons. They enter this game with a 3-7 record, which is the worse ever since Russell Wilson became the starter. Wilson should continue to improve as he continues to recover from his finger injury. Can the Seahawks pick up a much needed victory? Washington is turning things around with a 2-game winning streak after dropping the previous four. Taylor Heinicke has been playing some great ball while leading this team. Can they continue this resurgence on Monday Night? This will be a tough one, but I’m picking the Seahawks in a close one. Seattle Win 24-23
