JZN NFL Predictions vs. Spread: More Week 14 Picks Part 2 of 5

Here is part 2 of 5 (Plus two individual summaries) for my Week 14 picks this week.

Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions (-7)
Christian Ponder has a hip pointer and Adrian Peterson still has an ankle injury. The Minnesota Vikings have one of the NFL's worst secondaries and I have no idea how they contain Calvin Johnson. I understand that the Detroit Lions have lost five of their past seven games. With that said, I would be stunned if the Vikings pulled off an upset.

Against The Spread: Detroit Lions (-7)
Straight: Detroit Lions 24, Minnesota Vikings 10

New England Patriots (-9) at Washington Redskins
Rex Grossman vs. Tom Brady. Hopefully the Patriots won't give up 17 points in the fourth quarter and kill the spread this time.

Against The Spread: New England Patriots (-9)
Straight: New England Patriots 27, Washington Redskins 17

Philadelphia Eagles at Miami Dolphins (-3)
I'm 4-8 with picking games that feature the Philadelphia Eagles. The Miami Dolphins have won four of give games since starting 0-7. While the Eagles have some talent, they have so many coaching problems that I might just avoid picking them for the rest of the season. Why did they think promoting Juan Castillo from OL coach to DC was good again?

Against The Spread: Miami Dolphins (-3)
Straight: Miami Dolphins 24, Philadelphia Eagles 14
