2013 NFL Picks Week 12

Week 11 turned out to be decent for me, finishing 9-6 with relatively few surprises. It was certainly an improvement from Week 10's sub .500 effort, as I increased my overall season average to 57%.  Let's break the week down:

Detroit lost on the road to Pittsburgh, but I wasn't shocked by that result as Pittsburgh has come on strong as of late (if only I applied the same logic to NYG). San Diego lost to Miami which was sort of surprising, but with both teams being very inconsistent it was basically a toss up. Houston lost a toss-up to Oakland at home. The Jets were blown out against Buffalo, thus continuing their trend of alternating W/L. Like I mentioned before, Green Bay lost a toss up to the Giants who have now won 4 in a row after starting 0-6. Though I honestly wasn't shocked, the biggest surprise was probably New England losing to Carolina, albeit with some controversy. 1-3 in upset picks.

The Eagles have a bye Week 12, so I can't pick their game wrong! Onto the rest of the NFL:
