2013 NFL Picks

Hey all,

Thought I'd start a fun little thread for those of us on here who watch and follow the NFL. Rules are simple: I will post each week's schedule, and you can make your predictions on who you think will win.

Records:

Mazdafreak: 23-9

CN12: 15-17

Anybody else want to join? We could sure use more people!

Looks like Denver won, 49-27, with Peyton Manning tossing 7 TD's - a feat that hasn't happened in the NFL since 1969.

That was a weird game, especially when that Denver player dropped the ball at the one because he thought he was in the end zone already.

Yeah, that was weird. Looks like we're both 1-0 though!

Good first weekend of football….pretty sure I took top honors this week (considering we both picked the same in the Monday night games) but it will be interesting to see how those pan out.

Guess I'll go ahead and pick ‘em for this week.

NYJ @ NE - NE
STL @ ATL - ATL
CLE @ BAL - BAL
CAR @ BUF - CAR - Tough choice, but I think the Panthers defense might be a bit better than New England’s, and the Bills won't put up as many points.
MIN @ CHI - CHI
WSH @ GB - GB
TEN @ HOU - HOU
MIA @ IND - IND
DAL @ KC - KC - Going for the upset here. This will be interesting!
SD @ PHI - PHI
DET @ ARI - DET
NO @ TB - NO
DEN @ NYG - NYG - Another upset. Eli tends to show up in the biggest games. We'll see how that holds up this time.
JAX @ OAK - OAK - Can't see Jacksonville's horrible offense scoring enough to pull this one off.
SF @ SEA - SEA - Another upset, but watch out! Those Seahawks know how to play some serious football. Also, Russel Wilson has not yet lost at home.
PIT @ CIN - CIN - Pittsburgh was decimated by injuries last week. Their season looks pretty hazy now.

Patriots sneak past the Bills in a rain fest. Final score 13-10.

Interesting weekend of football, capped off by Seattle's blowout over San Fran, 29-3. That is the third game this season with a weather delay…sports just keep getting weirder and weirder.

Hmm, this seems a little too game-y for our forums. You would probably be better creating a fantasy league somewhere. This year i'm using CBS Sports' Office Pool Manager.
That said, i don't care at all about football. My strategy is use their 15-1 rank, and alternate home/away.

I think that if we redirected this thread to be more about picking the games, than a fantasy league, it could stay. Otherwise, i'm afraid we'll have to close the thread.

Looks like I went 11-5.

CN12, you had a bit of a rough week and went 7-9. But many games were decided by 7 points or less; take away one or two plays in each of those and your record is reversed.
