NFL Week 14 Picks - Thursday Game

Steelers vs. Browns
The Steelers at 6-6 are a desperate team right now and they have to be thrilled that they are facing the lowly Browns this week.  Even with Troy Polamalu out and potentially for the season they should have more than enough on defense to shut down the pathetic Browns offense, who has trouble scoring on anyone unless they are Detroit.  I really like good teams that are desperate for a win to cover.  The Steelers have disappointed me and most of us this season with their inept ability to cover, let alone win when they are supposed to.  That debacle last week versus Oakland was a complete embarrassment and they will be looking for blood.  I take the Steelers to cover the 10.  On a side note: much to my dismay I have yet to win a Thursday game this season, but I find it difficult to take the Browns in this position.
