The Playoffs are getting closer and the guys get you ready with a look at Week 14. Before the preview, the guys ask you to remember little Deeds and ask you help him with his goal of getting an autism assistance dog. Go here to donate! The guys also ask that you don’t forget to vote for NFL Rants & Raves as Best Sports Podcast at

The guys then turn to the 30th anniversary of the passing of John Lennon and share Howard Cosell‘s announcement of Lennon’s shooting on Monday Night Football. Steven and Jeff also discuss plenty of NFL News, as they talk about Matt Cassel‘s appendectomy, the Steelers and James Harrison accusing the Ravens of intentionally trying to injure him, the NFL preparing to show the owners a video of clean hits, Ben Roethlisberger commenting on his broken nose bones looking like corn flakes, and Steven rants on the absurd $15,000 fine given to Ndamukong Suh.

Finally the guys get to their picks of Week 14. The guys welcome Alex McKeever as this week’s guest picker. Jeff and Alex only disagree on two games, but Steven and Alex disagree on four games. Steven and Jeff however, disagree on seven games again this week. With Steven 8 games back this will be an interesting week of football. Steven goes out on a limb by taking the Bengals to upset the Steelers and Jeff quickly makes that the Challenge Game.
