Welcome to NFL Week 12 and happy Thanksgiving to you all! With a three-game slate starting up at 12:30pm ET on Thursday, we need to make sure we get our football picks in for our confidence pools and pick ‘em contests. The Thanksgiving Day slate features a trio of NFC match-ups that all have some serious implications. The Green Bay Packers are looking to stunt the progress made by the Detroit Lions and keep them from extending their lead in the division. Then the Dallas Cowboys host the Washington Commanders, hoping for a big win to keep pace with the Philadelphia Eagles in the East. And finally, the day wraps up with the San Francisco 49ers traveling north to take on the Seattle Seahawks as both teams continue to jockey for position atop the NFC West. And that just the tip of the iceberg as the Miami Dolphins and the New York Jets play on the NFL’s first ever Black Friday game. So how do I see all these games and all of Sunday’s games going? Here are my football picks straight up, no spread involved.



  • Season Record: 100-64
  • Season Points: 863

We had a big week last week, going 11-3 and we’ve narrowed the gap between me and first place significantly. I’m hoping to crack the top 10 in my pool overall with another big week here.
