Walker's AFC North picks

I stayed humble last week and came out undefeated.

So let's see what’s in store for another humble round of AFC North picks for Week 13:

Detroit Lions (2-9) at Cincinnati Bengals (8-3), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Analysis: Rumor has it the Bengals struggled with the Browns last week because I picked Cincinnati. Let’s see what happens this week.

Pick: Bengals, 24-14

Oakland Raiders (3-8) at Pittsburgh Steelers (6-5), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Analysis: This is as angry and frustrated as I’ve seen the Steelers in two years. I wouldn't want to be an Oakland Raider right now.

Pick: Steelers, 24-7

San Diego Chargers (8-3) at Cleveland Browns (1-10), Sunday at 4:05 p.m.

Analysis: One team has won six in a row and the other has lost six in a row. You do the math.

Pick: Chargers, 28-7

Baltimore Ravens (6-5) at Green Bay Packers (7-4), Monday at 8:30 p.m.

Analysis: I like the more desperate teams this time of year. The Ravens are my upset special of the week.

Pick: Ravens, 23-20

Last week: 2-0

Overall record: 23-11

Comment: How about those bowl-bound Temple Owls (9-3)?
