Week 13 begins early as the Packers and Cowboys face off in a battle for the right to be called the NFC's best. Sounds great and all, but the catch is that the game is on the NFL Network, which is a channel that few have. Luckily, I got the sports tier for Comcast over the summer, meaning I will be able to watch the top two NFC teams play, but a lot of people are left tracking the game on the Internet. Regardless, it should be a great game.
As far as picks go, I went 10-6 again last week, making it two straight weeks that I've done that. With the end of the season starting to come into sight more and more, I'm really hoping to put together a strong finish in my predictions to take home a couple of pick'em titles.
Moving on to the most important game for all Lions fans, Detroit has to win to keep any hopes of the playoffs alive. Too many teams are in their rear-view mirror just a game out of the final wild card spot. With that in mind, a win would be great, especially since Minnesota is one of those teams waiting to take over the final wild card spot. In the end I think the downward spiral will continue, but hopefully I'm wrong. I just don't see the Lions getting a road victory at an important time like this, but I'm counting on the hope that the Lions will prove me wrong.
Watch and enjoy!
