Playbook picks: Which team will stay undefeated?

Once again, it is the fearless Brian Baldinger going out on his own this week. He is the only one of our three NFL Network Playbook analysts who believe the Colts — and not the Saints —¬†will remain the league’s lone unbeaten team following Week 12. Sterling Sharpe and Joe Theismann, on the other hand, both like New Orleans to go 11-0, while predicting Indianapolis will lose for the first time in Houston.

Another key game where Baldinger strays from his fellow experts is in the Ravens-Steelers matchup on Sunday night. Baldinger likes the Ravens to knock off the defending champs, while Sharpe and Theisman are picking the Steelers.

Our three prognisticators don’t agree on much this week, but they are unanimous in thinking that the Vikings will have no problem against the reeling Bears.
