5 NFL Teams That Will Definitely Lose In Week 13

Welcome everyone to another edition of fove NFL teams that will definitely lose. After going three out of five the last two weeks trying to pick winners, I figure if I pick the losers as opposed to the winners it might change my luck around. Before I debut these dubious five teams, I'd like to defend my misses from Week 12.

The Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans were the teams I picked incorrectly last week. As far as the Chiefs go, I think they probably would have gotten a close win had they not lost their top two pass rushers Tamba Hali and Justin Houston during the game. Still there's no excuse to let the San Diego Chargers drive the length of the field with less than two minutes remaining in the game, especially not at Arrowhead. When it comes to the Texans, I don't know what else to say besides the fact that I'm an idiot for picking them yet again. I thought maybe, just maybe they could beat the Jacksonville Jaguars at home.

Originally I thought about taking my home team Baltimore Ravens in the Texans' spot but decided against it out of fear of being a jinx. Either way I've learned my lesson on the Texans. They might be the worst team in the league and should be treated as such.

Who will be some of the biggest losers in Week 13? Keep on clicking and find out. And of course have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

5. Oakland Raiders

The Oakland Raiders are bad, but not terrible. I'll give them that. One thing I can't give them, though, is a good chance at beating the Dallas Cowboys on a short week with Matt McGloin. I just don't see it, but as always the Cowboys are capable of disappointing at the drop of a hat.

Two weeks in a row I got burned picking the Texans to win. I now see the Texans for what they are, and that's one of the saddest, most depressing teams in the league. The New England Patriots beat the crap out of this team twice last year when the Texans were actually good. This is a slam dunk.

Speaking of sad and depressing, how about the 2013 Atlanta Falcons? I don't see the Falcons winning another game this year. Maybe they'll have a shot in Week 17 against the Carolina Panthers' backups.

2. Cleveland Browns

Read it and weep. The Jaguars are my upset special for Week 13. Of course I don't know how much of an upset it can be with Brandon Weeden involved. And why is the spread for this game seven? Even if Jason Campbell was playing this line shouldn't be any more than four points. Jags at plus seven points is yet another slam dunk.

1. Washington Redskins

Continuing our theme of sad and depressing teams, let's say hello to the Washington Redskins. I saw that Monday night debacle coming from a mile away, and although the New York Giants are nothing to write home about, I could easily see Andre Brown run for about 200 yards on these bums. At least the Redskins will get a good draft pick in 2014; oh yeah that's right the St. Louis Rams get it, oops. 2013 Redskins, we hardly knew ye.
