NFL Week 13: Staff Picks

Sam Greenwood

And with five weeks to go, Superduperboltman has pulled within two games of the staff lead.

As we come into Week 13, only one staff member is still picking the Chargers to win at home against the Cincinnati Bengals. That one man is Superduperboltman and he had the best Week 12 of anyone on staff. Maybe he knows something the rest of us don't. More likely, he's just a homer and if he goes 15-1 this week that'll be the only one he gets wrong.

Jeff and I were sitting at first and second on the staff coming into Week 12 and still were coming out of it, but thanks to worst and second worst weeks of anyone on staff, our gap over third place has fallen to one game and the gap from third to fourth is only one more.

With five weeks to go, it's anybody's ball game. More importantly, the battle for last is still a tie between AvengingJM and Dana. AJM has a chance to put some distance between himself and the Reverse Oracle this week, though, as she failed to submit her picks on time.

As for the actual games, we're unanimous in our picks for four games this week. The 49ers, Patriots, Panthers and Texans should all come away victorious this week. That's three very good teams and a team playing the Chiefs which is even more important than being good.

As always let us know who you have winning this week and why we're wrong.
