Hello football fans! Welcome to Week 12 of the NFL season!
Nothing changed in the standings so far, unless you’re in the NFC North.
The Detroit Lions held their ground atop the division with a win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Minnesota Vikings kept pace as their defense awoke to tame the Arizona Cardinals. They’re on a collision course on Thanksgiving Day, as both teams are looking to make turkeys out of the other.
It was a different story for the Green Bay Packers, as they could not get past the Washington Redskins on Sunday night. This is amid the rumors of Aaron Rodgers’ personal life in disarray.
The AFC still features the ultra-competitive AFC West in the running. The Oakland Raiders took advantage of its position (albeit without a little controversy) and took its place atop their division. The Kansas City Chiefs lost their spot thanks to their home los against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
It’s now time for the picks! I went 11-3 for Week 11, bringing my total to 96-65 for this year. In the vent of a tied game, ties count as losses when you make picks. It’s simple: if your team doesn’t win, you still get the big L. Here’s a recap of what I got right and wrong:
|Thu Nov 17||8:25 pm||New Orleans Saints||Carolina Panthers|
|Sun Nov 20||1:00 pm||Arizona Cardinals||Minnesota Vikings|
|1:00 pm||Baltimore Ravens||Dallas Cowboys|
