Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Welcome to Week 12 of the 2015 NFL season.
We still have the unbeaten teams of New England and Carolina in the running. The Patriots got past the Buffalo Bills on Monday night, albeit without injuries. Danny Amendola suffered a knee sprain on Monday with his availability in question for their battle against Denver.
The Carolina Panthers unloaded on the Washington Redskins. Cam Newton threw for five touchdowns to lead them to victory. Superman was in the building, indeed.
Jameis Winston of Tampa Bay was no slouch either. The Buccaneers’ rookie quarterback also threw for five touchdowns in their victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.
In division news, the Minnesota Vikings had a chance to gain a stranglehold over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC North. Unfortunately, the Packers regained control in dominating fashion. Who will reign supremacy in the NFC North: Green Bay or Minnesota?
Now, let’s talk picks. I went 10-6 in the picks for Week 11, bringing my total to 123-65. See what I got wrong below.

P.S. These refs need to get it together. How could they let that play happen? Amendola had at the very least a first down in what should have been an amazing play by Tom Brady. Interestingly enough, this is the second week in a row referee controversy struck during a Patriots game.
