Week 13 NFL Pick ‘Em

This contest continues to be close as we head down the stretch.  Raj managed to take the lead last week, but the top four spots are still separated by a total of two games.  Things are guaranteed to stay close as well as all but two picks were unanimous.  I'm backing one rookie of the year candidate, Andrew Luck in Detroit, and Rick's got RGIII's back against the Giants.  Other than that, the field is locked.

Week 13 NFL Pick ‘Em

Last week, I did something that I thought was impossible.

Oh. And. Seven.

That’s right, I went all 2008 Detroit Lions with my picks last week.  And remember, even though Rick managed to go 7-0, it’s actually much harder to whiff on every single pick.  After all, we are trying to straight-up pick the winners here.  5-2 and 6-1 weeks aren’t uncommon at all.    But to actually predict the winners and be wrong every single time…  Wow. 

But let’s turn our attention to the folks who aren’t 17 games out of first place.  Stephen has a sizeable lead, and the level of interest for the rest of this game comes down to GB vs. NYG, CIN vs. PIT, and TEN vs. BUF.  If he hits on all three of those, the game may be all but his.  If not, then the door is open for one of the other three people not named Derek to win this game.

Week 13 NFL Pick ‘Em

It’s official: what goes around comes around. Like I mentioned last week, it was a short-lived bragging rights privilege I held on to (myself and Rick were 5-0 in week 11.) But now I’ve come back to earth, sporting a dismal 2-3 in this past week’s Pick ‘Em. Rick is still in the clouds though, laughing at all of us I’m sure.

Derek has bounced back in a huge way, with a 4-1 record this past week, with the Colts being the lone wrong pick, bringing him to 7-3 overall. Rick remains on a solid winning pace, going 3-2 in week twelve with Indy and Oakland falling (Rick is now 8-2 overall). Jason, like myself, comes in with a 2-3 record from last week after the Seahawks were downed by the Chiefs (I made the same mistake), which brings him to 6-4.

It’s a pretty grueling pace with little room for error so far. Rick is leading, but the rest of us are right on his heels. And now we have to pick these games. It doesn’t get any easier.
