2014 NFL Picks, Week 14: Packers won't look past first-place Falcons

New, comments

There's little concern about a trap game this week for the Packers, as APC believes that they will take care of business on Monday Night against Atlanta.

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

It's Thursday again, and that means it's time for the writers here at Acme Packing Company to make our picks for week 14 around the NFL. Though there are a handful of big games between teams with winning records this week -- Seahawks-Eagles and Patriots-Chargers each featuring two teams with 8 wins or more -- only one game pits two division leaders against one another.

Naturally, that game is the 9-3 Packers hosting the 5-7 Falcons on Monday Night, and that's probably the game you're most interested in since you're reading a Packers blog. In any case, Green Bay is 6-0 at Lambeau Field this year, and at home this season the Packers have defeated two first-place teams there in the past three weeks and are averaging over 40 points per game. We don't see any way that the Falcons' defense, which is allowing 25 points per game and the most passing yards in the league, will be able to stop Aaron Rodgers and company.

Here are our full picks for this week.

That's right, as you might expect, it's a sweep for the Packers in our picks this week. Though last week Brendan and Tex didn't think that Green Bay would pull off a victory against the Patriots, there are no such concerns against the Falcons on Monday.

Here are our overall standings for this season, and congrats to Josh for crushing the rest of us in week 13 and putting up his second-straight 12-point week.
