Here we are at Week 12 in the NFL Regular Season. It’s going by fast isn’t it? Here at Nice Pick Cowher, we are not only a bunch of nerds who follow the Pittsburgh Steelers tirelessly, but we are also a bunch of nerds who follow the NFL tirelessly. Therefore we put our money (or maybe just pride) where our mouths are and make picks on every NFL game each week. We don’t mess around with point spreads or anything like that. Just straight up picks.
The Steelers will travel to Cleveland and bring with them a 2-game winning streak. Not definitely much to go by but, that’s how this season has gone so far. I certainly hope the team can exorcise the demons that plagued them the last time they traveled to Cleveland in late November. I drop stuff just thinking about all the fumbles that day. Of course the Peyton Manning show is back on for Sunday Night Football this time Peyton and the Broncos will take on the Patriots in Foxboro to see if Brady and company can stop whining about the bad call in the end-zone for their Monday Night loss to the Panthers.
Big congratulations to our staff winner Nick, getting his first win of the season with 12 picks correct last week. I’ve jumped back out to a 2-game lead overall with six weeks left to go. This is the last week of byes so it’s time to turn it up a notch. Our reader participant, Jenn, also beat the rest of us with 12 winners. Way to go Jenn!
Feel free to make picks of your own in the comments section, or take the opportunity to heckle and criticize our opinions if that’s your deal. Check back next week to see how I expand my overall lead and reaffirm my football picks supremacy over the rest of the staff. Make your picks or root for your favorite NPC staffer! Here we go Steelers!
