We’re down to the final two weeks of the 2013 NFL Regular Season. 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 did a little bit of Bungle bashing on Sunday night and showed Steeler Nation what could have been if they hadn’t been so crappy in so many other games. Otherwise, Week 15 was a week of crapping the bed for teams with the potential to clinch playoff seeds or division titles. Pittsburgh travels to Green Bay to take on the Packers who just might have Aaron Rodgers back as they are now in a crunch to try to make the playoffs. The Steelers are still not mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. I know right? They’ll need to win out of course and as well as hope for losses from Miami, Baltimore, and San Diego to make the improbable come true.
Miami hopes to follow up their victory over the Patriots with another divisional win over Buffalo. Good thing they got some practice in the snow against the Steelers. New Orleans and Carolina will battle for the NFC South division while Dallas gets a chance at redemption while facing the Redskins. Seems like the NFC East and NFC North are divisions no team seems to be able to separate themselves from the pack.
We had a three-way tie between Craig, Nick, and Scott for the win last week with 9 right but our reader participant, Jenn blew you all out of the water with 10 picks right. I’ve lost the overall lead to Jim, only temporarily of course.
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!
Here are the overall standings:
Kim = 145-78
Dom = 135-88
Craig = 137-86
Nick = 131-92
Scott = 143-80
Jim = 146-77
