Picking winners for Week 15 NFL games

Each week, the Around The League writer with the worst record in picks has to write our introduction. This week, that man is Kevin Patra.

Let's be clear; I didn't lose alone. I tallied the same weekly score as my boss, Gregg Rosenthal. But here I am writing the intro as the sole loser in this game of picking.

It's sort of like punishing only one prankster for a misplayed act of hijinks.

Still, it could have been worse than merely missing on two hero picks.

As they say, go big or go home.
