What a lousy week in the picks. My record dropped from 14-2 in Week 12 to 7-9 in Week 13. That was one game better than my better half, at least. She took the Packers in the only game we saw differently heading into the weekend.
In retrospect, the desperate-team-theory did not hold up across the board. It came through for the Ravens against the Bengals, but not for the Broncos against the Seahawks or the Giants against the Cowboys. And how 'bout them Chiefs, Colts, Rams and Panthers? Shame, shame.
Our records so far: 101-58 (me) and 95-64 (her). There is always next week. We'll have those picks up sometime Thursday, probably.
Some of the fun games to pick this week: Giants-Panthers, Colts-Jags, Ravens-Chiefs, Patriots-Dolphins and Saints-Cowboys.
