Week 13 NFL game picks: Tough week for AFC West

New, comments
Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

It was another rough week of game picks in week 12. The Raiders seem to impossible to predict these days. Just when you think they will do a face plant, they pull out a win and when it seems they have it in the bag, they choke. So, for Raiders fans, this week's picks will probably come as good news.

Last week we all got the Raiders pick wrong and we all struggled. There was also a tie which removes that game from even counting in the total (thanks Packers and Vikings). The result was no one having better than one game above .500 for the week.

The two prognosticators to come out with winning records last week were SOB and RDreamer. SOB was already in the lead so he extended that lead by a couple of game as myself and Marcus both turned in a 5-8 record.

There were seven consensus picks last week and we were a pathetic 3-4 in those picks.

This week the Raiders game is again a consensus pick. But it is the Cowboys we are all picking to win it. Again there are seven consensus picks. Those games winners are the Cowboys, Panthers, Patriots, Bills, 49ers, Broncos, and Giants.

Most of us think the Seahawks will protect their home field while Marcus thinks the Saints will handle their business. Jeff is the only one who thinks Carson Palmer and the Cardinals can take care of the Eagles and the Jets can handle the Dolphins. RDreamer likes another former Raiders quarterback as he was the only one to pick Matt Flynn to lead the Packers to a win over the Lions. He is also the only who thinks the Titans showed enough last week against the Raiders to upset the mighty Colts in Indianapolis.

The standings didn't change this week from last week. Have a Happy Thanksgiving, everybody.
