    History was made in San Diego this past weekend. LaDainian Tomlinson set the single season touchdown record with 29 touchdowns this season. He still has 3 more games to pad that record. What's even more amazing is that he's done it with out ever running behind a single pro bowl offensive lineman.

    Here are this weeks picks.

    <strong>Chris Carter 126-82
    Thumper 122-86
    Bob Costas 122-86
    Dan Marino 121-87
    Chris Collinsworth 119-89</strong>

    <strong>Thursday, Dec. 14</strong>

    <em><strong>San Francisco 17, Seattle 24</strong></em>
    Hassselback has been throwing well. This trend should continue against a porous 49ers defense.

    <strong>Saturday, Dec. 16</strong>

    <em><strong>Dallas 24, Atlanta 19</strong></em>
    Expect Tony Romo to rebound after a bad outing against the Saints.

    <strong>Sunday, Dec. 17</strong>

    <em><strong>Cleveland 13, Baltimore 17</strong></em>
    The Browns will have a tough day running the ball against this tough Ravens defense.

    <em><strong>Detroit 17, Green Bay 24</strong></em>
    It would be a shame if the Lions were to win any of their remaining games. It would take them out of contention to get Brady Quinn with the #1 pick in the draft.

    <em><strong>Houston 10, New England 28</strong></em>
    After a rough outing, Tom Brady should rebound against the hapless Texans.

    <em><strong>Jacksonville 21, Tennessee 20</strong></em>
    The Jaguars defense might be to much for any last minute Vince Young heroics.

    <em><strong>Miami 21, Buffalo 19</strong></em>
    The Bills put together a nice game last week against the Jets, but this week the Dolpins will come to town to ruin the party.

    <em><strong>N.Y. Jets 9, Minnesota 17</strong></em>
    The Jets running game will struggle against a strong Vikings rush defense.

    <em><strong>Pittsburgh 19, Carolina 13</strong></em>
    Fast Willie Parker has been putting up yards on the ground with ease. Expect the Steelers ground game to lead them to victory.

    <em><strong>Tampa Bay 6, Chicago 24</strong></em>
    Don't tell Rex Grossman he's struggling. He'll pull out a big game like he did last week.

    <em><strong>Washington 17, New Orleans 31</strong></em>
    Drew Brees should fair well against a Redskins defense that has given up several big plays.

    <em><strong>Denver 21, Arizona 17</strong></em>
    Jay Cutler will be happy to face any defense that doesn't have Shawne Merriman after Merriman forced him to fumble twice last week against the Chargers.

    <em><strong>Philadelphia 22, N.Y. Giants 24</strong></em>
    Jeff Garcia has been amazing since Donovan McNabb went down to a season ending injury. The Eagle run defense is going to be a problem here though as Tiki Barber has a big day.

    <em><strong>St. Louis 20, Oakland 13</strong></em>
    The Raiders defense has improved as the season has progressed. To bad the same can't be said for the Raiders offense.

    <strong><em>Kansas City 24, San Diego 38</em></strong>
    Trent Green is going to feel the heat from a relatively healthy Chargers defense, but the Chargers will dominate on offense with the highest scoring unit in the league.

    <strong>Monday, Dec. 18</strong>

    <em><strong>Cincinnati 24, Indianapolis 27</strong></em>
    Can the Colts stop anyone from running the ball on them? Maybe not, but if they can at least slow Rudy Johnson down, maybe they can out score the Bengals.
