I slayed it last week, going 13-3. This puts me at 102-73-2 for the year. On to week 13 as this season continues to fly by.
Kansas City Chiefs (8-3) at Atlanta Falcons (7-4)
(-3.5) (0/U 49.0)
Two really good teams face off in this one, but I think the Falcons are going to go on a run.
Detroit Lions (7-4) at New Orleans Saints (5-6)
(-6.0) (O/U 53.5)
Detroit took sole possession of first place in the NFC North last week after a Thanksgiving win against the Vikings, but all 7 of their wins this season have been because of fourth quarter comebacks.
Their luck is bound to run out soon. Not to mention the Lions have a long history of choking late in the season.
Los Angeles Rams (4-7) at New England Cheaters (9-2)
(-13.5) (O/U 44.5)

A great start to the NFL playoffs last week as we had two of four games have insane finishes. For the first time in history all four road teams won on wildcard weekend, which makes sense considering all the away teams were starting quarterbacks with playoff experience and all the home teams had quarterbacks starting in their first playoff games.
As is so often the case it was veteran leadership that won out. 7 quarterbacks left have played in and won a playoff game (Carson Palmer is the exception) and 5 of the 8 starting quarterbacks left have won a Super Bowl, so expect a dramatic finish to the season.
It will be Tom Brady vs Alex Smith, Ben Roethilsberger vs Peyton Manning, Russell Wilson vs Cam Newton and Aaron Rodgers vs Palmer. Talk about madness.
A last second change from the Packers to the Redskins prevented me from a clean sweep of picks, but 3-1 ain’t so bad. let’s keep it going.
