Week 13 NFL Predictions Results: Cardinals Blow NFC West Lead


Looking back on our NFL predictions from last week you can’t really fault us for picking the Arizona Cardinals to defeat the Atlanta Falcons. Don’t get me wrong, I’m absolutely thrilled that the Cardinals are faltering at exactly the right time. With the Seahawks playing their best football of the season this is exactly how we want things to be for the stretch run.

The Seahawks did their part in winning their second straight game 19-3 against an NFC West division opponent. This time the San Francisco 49ers were the victims. And to make it that much sweeter, the win came on the road, on Thanksgiving, and the celebration was held on the 50-yard line and 49ers logo.

The Cardinals loss combined with the Steelers and Ravens both losing at home resulted in a pretty poor showing for all but one of our panelists.

Colin Floyd managed to pull out a 12-4 record on the week, besting both Mitch and myself by three games and gaining ground on second place. He now trails Mitch by just two games with four weeks to go.

How did our picks compare to yours? Do you think that the Rams are now a team that’s clicking at the right time and could surprise some top teams in the final weeks of the regular season? Maybe the Seahawks at CenturyLink in Week 17 with the division championship possibly on the line?
