Walker's AFC North picks

We have four challenging games to choose from Sunday.

Here are the AFC North blog's picks for Week 15:

Cleveland Browns (2-11) at Kansas City Chiefs (3-10), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Analysis: Both Cleveland and Kansas City are on equal footing. So with 10 days to prepare, I like the Browns in a mild upset.

Pick: Browns, 16-13

Chicago Bears (5-8) at Baltimore Ravens (7-6), Sunday at 4:15 p.m.

Analysis: Thursday's loss by the Jacksonville Jaguars (7-7) should give the Ravens extra motivation since Baltimore controls its own destiny. Inclement weather could keep the score low.

Pick: Ravens, 17-6

Cincinnati Bengals (9-4) at San Diego Chargers (10-3), Sunday at 4:05 p.m.

Analysis: It's hard to predict how a team will respond to tragedy. But I expect a good effort from Cincinnati, just not enough to end the Chargers' eight-game winning streak.

Pick: Chargers, 27-24

Green Bay Packers (9-4) at Pittsburgh Steelers (6-7), Sunday at 4:15 p.m.

Analysis: I know the Packers are good and the Steelers lost to some bad teams. But, again, playing off 10 days rest at home this time of year is hard to pass up.

Pick: Steelers, 20-17

Last week: 2-1

Overall record: 27-14
