My picks for NFL week 12

Here we are again- it’s time for this week’s NFL Pool wrap-up and preview.

Last week: 9-7

Summary: Yay, I did much better last week. If only Washington had won and I had picked Jacksonville like I should have. Ahh well. No word on whether or not I won for the first time last week- the judges will ring in tomorrow during Thanksgiving festivities. But I was above .500, and at this point that’s good enough for me, as I’m currently 11 games back of the overall season lead (but still in 2nd place).


Season to date:
80-62 – Good for 57%

Here we are again- it’s time for this week’s NFL Pool wrap-up and preview.

My picks for NFL week 5

So I’m in a football pool with some family. I’ve been logging my progress so far– here’s the latest update.

Last week: 10-4

Last week, I looked smart taking New England (my team) and Houston, two “upsets” that put me tied with my brother-in-law. It all came down to Seattle vs. Chicago for us, I took Seattle, and we know how that turned out (Seattle got whomped, 37-6). So after four weeks, I still have yet to win a single week- I’ve come within one game twice, but I can’t put it over the top.

Season to date: 28-16 – Good for 63%

Here are my picks for the upcoming week 5:

Chicago
Green Bay
Indianapolis
Detroit
New England
New Orleans
New York Giants
Carolina
Kansas City
San Fransisco
New York Jets
Philadelphia
Pittsburgh
Denver (44)
