2012 NFL Playoff Predictions: Week 14

With four weeks remaining in the 2012 NFL season, here are my predictions for how the playoff picture will look at the end of the regular season.

The New Orleans Hornets are becoming the New Orleans Pelicans

Ever since Tom Benson announced his purchase of the turbulent New Orleans NBA franchise, the Hornets, he was clear in his intent to change the name to something more New Orleans-oriented. After all, the franchise was originally the Charlotte Hornets and when they moved to the Big Easy thanks to their scumbag owner becoming a hated public figure, and they never changed the name. But it was reported today by Marc J. Spears that the team will be known as the New Orleans Pelicans as early as next season. Here is my analysis.

Who will win the Heisman Trophy tonight?

History will be made this Saturday at the Downtown Athletic Club in New York. Either we will have the first defense-only Heisman Trophy recipient in Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o, we will have the first freshman recipient in Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel or we will have the first Mandolin-playing Heisman winner in Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein (I actually can't confirm that. If anyone can and comment below, they will receive a legitimate blog shoutout). So who will win?

2012 NFL Week 14 Picks

In what makes to be a huge game in regards to the AFC playoff picture and probably will play a role in who gets homefield advantage, Arian Foster and the Houston Texans will head on up to Foxborough and take on the New England Patriots. We've got the top two seeds in the conference going at it on Monday night, who will win?

Watch Byron Mullens dunk all over LaMarcus Aldridge

It's always a good time when we can get friend of the blog Byron Mullens in the mix and he certainly earned his due this time by dunking all up in LaMarcus Aldridge's grill. Of course, it should have been a charge but don't rain on this parade, eh? Let's go to the videotape.

2012-13 Bowl Game Matchups

Who would ever think we would see the day when Northern Illinois would be in a BCS bowl but behind the talents of quarterback Jordan Lynch, the Huskies, who won the MAC on Friday night by defeating Kent State in double overtime in Detroit, are headed to the Orange Bowl to take on Florida State. Of course ESPN is angry about them getting in, but I guess they don't have problems with automatic qualifiers Wisconsin (Big Ten) or Louisville (Big East) getting in either. Don't shoot the messenger, friends.

Quasi-rant aside, let's take at the 35 bowl games that will dot December and January.
