Hello football fans! Welcome to Week 13 of the NFL season!
Don’t look now, but the Miami Dolphins are in the mix! The Dolphins stopped the San Francisco 49ers from rallying a comeback, putting them at 7-4. They also got help from Kansas City, who defeated the Denver Broncos with a chip shot field goal in overtime!
Everyone was surprised to say the least. Even Cairo Santos, Kansas City’s winning kicker, decided to poke some fun at himself on Twitter.
This means both the Chiefs and the Dolphins are your AFC Wild Card teams, for now!
The NFC picture is a bit clearer. The Detroit Lions increased their lead in the NFC North thanks to defeating the Minnesota Vikings. The Cowboys, Giants and Falcons all won as well. The only surprise came in Tampa when the Buccaneers pulled off the upset against the Seattle Seahawks 14-5.
Good thing no one in the NFC West made up any ground on Seattle. They still hold first place.
It’s now time for the picks! I went 13-3 for Week 12, bringing my total to 109-68 for this year. In the event 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 24||12:30 pm||Minnesota Vikings||Detroit Lions|
