Walker's AFC North picks

The AFC North blog had another .500 week after picking all four division teams to win. (Remind me not to do that again.)

But with a division team playing on Thanksgiving, here are our early picks for Week 12 (all times are ET):

Cincinnati Bengals (2-8) at New York Jets (8-2), Thursday at 8:20 p.m.

Skinny: Even Terrell Owens says the Bengals are "terrible." We believe him.

Pick: Jets, 27-10

Pittsburgh Steelers (7-3) at Buffalo Bills (2-8), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Skinny: The Bills have won two in a row against bad teams. But that streak ends Sunday.

Pick: Steelers, 30-17

Carolina Panthers (1-9) at Cleveland Browns (3-7), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Skinny: It doesn't matter who plays quarterback for the Browns against the lowly Panthers.

Pick: Browns, 20-13

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-3) at Baltimore Ravens (7-3), Sunday at 4:15 p.m.

Skinny: Similar to the Steelers, the Ravens are a tough matchup for Tampa on offense and defense.

Pick: Ravens, 23-14

Last week: 2-2

Overall: 20-14

Comment: Don't overstuff yourself today.
