First, I hope everyone had a good thanksgiving spent with family, friends, loved ones and football! After a tough week to pick, I ended up splitting and giving up only the vigs. Not bad for such a strange week. Look for things to get back on track this week. Let's recap:
HOU-3.5**: (L) It was a lousy loss only compounded by the fact that Houston wouldn't have even tied this one with that BS turnover/TD/challenge/penalty nonsense.
WAS@DAL OVER 48**: (W) This one was a beauty! Great game too. I always love watching Dallas go down on Thanksgiving.
NE-7***: (W) HAHAHA. Got to listen to some of this in the car as I was driving via sirius. the NE radio guys were hilarious tearing on the Jets. I highly recommend listening to them when they are killing a team...entertaining (even if it was the Pats).
BUF+3*: (L) "Alert, alert - HOMER BET!" Yes - They suck.
Den-10.5**: (L) Tough to play against the home dog in a divisional game. The dog bit me in the a**.
BAL-1: (W) When all hope is lost, Ray Rice converts that 4th and 29...ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?!?!?! Time for the turk in SD!
3-3-0 on the week making the season record a cool 39-29-2. Winning more than losing is a good thing!

Week 13 Picks:
ATL-3.5*: New Orleans will look to rebound from an embarassing home loss. Atlanta will look to rebound from a close one-point win in a tough game. I like homefield advantage in the Georgia Dome (you all know that by now).
CHI-4**: Seattle has not been a great road team and Chicago is playing amazing football with Cutler under center.
SF-7.5**: St. Louis is going to pay for that tie. Kap is coming to town and wants to prove his success is no fluke.
JAX@BUF OVER 45***: Henne always used to throttle the Bills. Look for an offensive rebound against a bad defense...big points in this one!
NYG-3***: They're on their annual late-season run. They always play good on the road. AND they get to play a team who pulled the surprise upset last week. Sets up good to the G-Men.
I hate picking all favs, but that's the hand that was dealt this week. What do you like this weekend?
