Pigskin Picks NFL Week 13
Well week 12 was rough. 7 picks. 3 wins, 4 losses. In the old NFL the Eagles have to kick to extra point and that would’ve covered the 3 1/2. Oh well. I still can’t pick the Commanders games correctly, so I think it will put them in the shed and never pick their game again. Pigskin Picks NFL Week 13 has arrived and we’re back to our normal 3 picks until Super Wild Card Weekend. As always Pigskin Picks is brought to you by Parx Casino and Sportsbook – this is how you win – must be 21 – gambling problem call 1-800-gambler.
Thanksgiving Weekend Record: 3-4. Overall Record: 25-18
Atlanta Falcons @ New York Jets ATL -2
Someone has to win the NFC south. At the moment it looks like the Atlanta Falcons are just good enough to do it. Craziest part if they win the division is they’ll host a playoff game. Currently the Falcons are 5-6 and in first place in the south. They aren’t good. The Jets are worse. Arthur Smith seems to have realized things work well when you give your best player the ball, because Bijon Robinson is scoring and making big plays now that he’s seeing the ball. This continues against an inept Jets team. Falcons cover the 2.
PICK – Atlanta
Kansas City Chiefs @ Green Bay Packers KC -6
The Packers seem to be figuring things out a bit which is good for a young team. The Chiefs may have figured out which player to get the ball to besides Travis Kelce and Isaiah Pacheco, which is bad new for the Packers. If Rashee Rice is emerging as a go to wide receiver for Patrick Mahomes then Green Bay is in trouble even at home. Even if it’s near below freezing temps in Green Bay by game time. Kansas City gets cold too. Chiefs roll at Lambeau.
PICK – Kansas City
49ers @ Eagles SF -2.5
“Talk is cheap. They get to come back in the Linc. It was a lot of boo hoos last year, a lot of crying, a lot of what if, a lot of this, a lot of that. They get a chance to come back in here, line that shit up and prove it again.” –Haason Reddick, Eagles DE
He’s right. The Niners have been talking about the NFC Championship Game since they got their doors blown off in January 2023. Relive it:
Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk primarily have spouted off about things would’ve been different… Their own teammate Fred Warner wishes they would not do that and give an already motivated team more motivation. A win and the Eagles all but lock up the 1 seed and home field in the NFC. This one is going to be tight, but it’s going to be a madhouse at Lincoln Financial Field. Of course San Francisco could come in and win the game, making the remainder of the season interesting in the NFC. I just can’t bet against Jalen Hurts, especialy in big games. Because week after week, to steal from Haason Reddick, “he lines that shit up and proves it again” and again. Eagles cover (*whispers* and win outright).
PICK – Eagles
