Hello everyone. Welcome to Week 12 of the NFL Season.
We saw both Mannings fall, Eli in worse fashion than Peyton. We witnessed the Packers dominating the Eagles in a brutal beat down. We also saw a great showdown in Indianapolis, a Super Bowl champion lose to the Chiefs and the Cardinals going 9-1. It was an eventful Week 11, to say the least.
I went 7-7 last week, bringing my total to 102-58. The following is what I got right and wrong for Week 11.

Before we move on, we need to address the situation in Buffalo. The town was hit with a massive snowstorm, with a reported depth of five feet (not inches). The Bills were unable to practice due to the storm, and their game with the Jets could be delayed. The staff at Ralph Wilson Stadium must clear out 220,000 tons of snow. Otherwise, expect the game to be played at a later date.
Meanwhile, let us all give those affected by the storm our well wishes.
Good luck to all teams this year. If you’re making picks this year, good luck to as well. Also to check local listings, as times are subject to change.
