San Francisc 49ers vs Maimi Dolphins

To the fans of the San Francisco 49ers, the organization itself and linebacker Aldon Smith, I owe you all an apology. While mesmerized by the possibility of three NFL stars simultaneously breakingALDON-465x600 three single season marks to conclude the 2012 season, I left out Smith, which ups that class of players to four.

With 19.5 sacks in his 2012 campaign, Smith only trails Houston defensive end J.J. Watt by one (20.5) in this department. With both being within arm’s reach of Michael Strahan’s league leading mark of 22.5, and one game to shatter this historic mark, this race has become all the more intriguing.

On one end, you have J.J. Watt, who is facing an Indianapolis offensive front that has allowed the ninth most sacks in the league with 40. On the other, Aldon Smith isPicture28_crop_exact blessed to face that of the Arizona Cardinals, who are human turnstiles that allowed their quarterback to get sacked 56 times, a league high. Given the scenarios here, Smith appears to be the most likely candidate to generate the most sacks in 2012. Then again, something could go awry for Indy’s offensive line, which in turn could see Watt claim the title. Either way, it’ll be interesting to see where these two finish. Can they break Strahan’s record?

Last week I sacked 13 games, only losing three. I’ve gotta nab more double-digit wins to close the regular season out. With that said, here we go:

Falcons over Buccaneers
Bills over Jets
Bengals over Ravens
Bears over Lions
Titans over Jaguars
Colts over Texans
Panthers over Saints
Eagles over Giants
Browns over Steelers
Broncos over Chiefs
Vikings over Packers
Patriots over Dolphins
Chargers over Raiders
49ers over Cardinals
Seahawks over Rams
Redskins over Cowboys

The regular season will now come to a close. Watch how the 2012 playoff picture unfolds. Stay tuned to TNP Sports for our upcoming Wildcard prognostications.
