NFL 2012 Week 12 Thread (Updated with Pick 'Ems)
Titans at Jaguars: Last week, my Jags pick came SO CLOSE to ruining all your precious little 5-0s! SO CLOSE DAMMIT. And after all that teasing! Well, they're just going to have to take it out on Gumbie's Titans this week. Justin Blackmon started playing like the top overall rookie WR last week, and the run defense showed up and handily contained Arian Foster. The pass D... well, they can't all be winners, but there's no Andre Johnson on the Titan sideline. It's Jaguars time.
49ers at Saints: IT'S COLIN KAEPERNICK TIME! 49ers
Seahawks at Dolphins: Seattle's defensive domination continued last week, as they pitched a shutout against Bye. They won't exactly have their toughest test this week, as the Miami offense hasn't scored more then 20 points in 3 weeks. It's going to be rough for Ryan Tannehill, who has struggled significantly after a few hot weeks. I don't think this is a get-back-on-track week for him. Seahawks
Falcons at Buccaneers: Tampa is sure making things interesting. On the backs of Doug "Muscle Hamster" Martin and Josh "Second Helping" Freeman, Tampa is on a 4 game winning streak. Atlanta, though, is still sitting pretty atop the division at 9-1, though they continue to look vulnerable each week. If Tampa wants any chance of chasing down the Falcons, they have to win here, and bring the race within 2 games. Then they'll get Atlanta again in week 17. That would be an exciting division race... but I expect a rebound by Atlanta.
And our wildcard pick comes via Phone-A-Boogle:
Raiders at Bengals: "The boogle, in his infinite wisdom, has decided the final pick of the week shall be Raiders vs Bengals. Why you ask? Because I have Andy Dalton in a fantasy league and I'll be damned if I don't make everyone watch this game with me. I like the Raiders to beat the 6 point line, the Bengals to win, and the under (48). Boogle picks everything! (Except for picking up women)." I'm not sure if I was supposed to include that last line. Bengals
