James Walker's AFC North picks


The AFC North blog finally had an undefeated week, and now we believe we have quality momentum for the home stretch of the 2010 season.

With three games to pick, including the biggest game of the season in the division, here are our selections for Week 13 (All times are ET):

New Orleans Saints (8-3) at Cincinnati Bengals (2-9), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Skinny: This is an easy pick with two teams heading in opposite directions. Saints will expose Cincinnati's banged-up secondary.

Pick: Saints, 28-13

Cleveland Browns (4-7) at Miami Dolphins (6-5), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Skinny: The Browns could show a lot of growth by winning this road game. But I don't like the way they're playing the past two weeks.

Pick: Dolphins, 20-16

Pittsburgh Steelers (8-3) at Baltimore Ravens (8-3), Sunday at 8:20 p.m.

Skinny: I already picked the Ravens on Wednesday, and I don't backtrack on predictions. Both teams will be a factor in the postseason, but Baltimore seems more in sync right now.

Pick: Ravens, 20-17

Last week: 4-0

Overall: 24-14

Comment: Unfortunately for AFC North fans, the division goes 1-3 this week.
