There are only so many chances you can give a team, especially if that team is the Atlanta Falcons. One week after holding off a late push from the New Orleans Saints, the Falcons went on the road looking to send a message against the lowly Carolina Panthers. Instead, the Panthers drubbed the Falcons, with Cam Newton running wild over a defenseless Atlanta defense. The Falcons lost outright, and saw their record as favorites against the spread drop to 5-5-1. The NESN.com NFL picks podcasters — Mike Cole and Ricky Doyle — aren’t falling for that again this week, especially with the New York Giants heading south to take on the Dirty Birds in the Georgia Dome. See all of the Week 15 picks below, and listen to the guys defend those picks and chat about pigskin in the podcast at the bottom. Home teams in caps and lines courtesy of Bovada.lv.
