NFL Picks, Week 14: Denver Broncos Vs. Arizona Cardinals - Eric Studesville Debuts As Head Coach

It's a fresh start for the Denver Broncos under interim head coach Eric Studesville, who received the promotion after Josh McDaniels was fired on Monday afternoon. With only four games remaining this season, Studesville is auditioning to have the "interim" label removed from his name. However, the Broncos will do their due diligence in selecting their next head coach. But a strong finish to the season would certainly help Studesville's chances at retaining the position.

But there's also that matter of Perrish Cox's arrest for an alleged sexual assault that the team must deal with as the situation unfolds.

Prediction: Broncos 27, Cardinals 14

The Cardinals are on a seven-game losing streak, starting rookie John Skelton at quarterback, and are terrible against the run. The team is poor against the pass. This has a Broncos win written all over it. Even if Kyle Orton turns in another performance like last week's, Knowshon Moreno, who had 161 yards last week, will be able to pound the ball relentlessly. Remember, Eric Studesville was the Broncos running back coach before his promotion. No reason he'll go with the pass for three straight drives with the game on the line.
