Week 13 ... Heck, I am already gearing up for playoff time.
And boy, this week offers so many matchups with playoff implications. I can't wait to see Lions at Saints, for example. If you check out Detroit's remaining schedule, you'll notice that Jim Caldwell's bunch had better win this Week 13 matchup in the Big not Easy in order to avoid potentially facing a rejuvenated (and healthier) Pack in Week 17 for all the NFC North marbles. Of course, Green Bay has to beat the first-place Texans to keep the pressure on Detroit. A Packers win also would put the sputtering Texans in a lurch, with both the Colts and Titans hot on their heels. With the Cowboys on the road (against the struggling Vikings) and the Giants facing a tough matchup in Pittsburgh, count this week as more than relevant when it comes to home-field advantage in the NFC. We could go on and on. On to your thoughts ...
Dude, when did you send this, like 4:23 AM? I was watching "Two Towers." Sorry.
Same chances as Philly WRs not dropping a ball the rest of the season.
Now, let's get to it!
Elliot Harrison went 11-5 on his predictions for Week 12, giving him a record of 116-59-2 thus far this season. How will he fare in Week 13? His picks are below:
***EDITOR'S NOTE:** This pick was made before [Broncos](/teams/denverbroncos/profile?team=DEN) QB [Trevor Siemian](/player/trevorsiemian/2553457/profile) was [ruled out for the game with a left foot sprain](http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000749904/article/trevor-siemian-ruled-out-for-broncos-vs-jaguars).* </content:weekly-predictions>
One more thing ... I've followed Mike Zimmer's career since he was a defensive assistant on the early-'90s Cowboys teams. He's always been highly thought of in league circles -- thus, the respect he's receiving from the masses now is hardly a surprise. Just hope that he's back on the sideline fully healthy sooner than later.
