PICK’EM and SURVIVOR: Week 12

Top 5 Pick ‘Em

Season Record: 31-23-1

Pittsburgh -4.5 (@ Indianapolis) – While it is not official yet, it doesn’t look like Andrew Luck will be suiting up Thursday night. Enter Scott Tolzien, who has a career touchdown to interception ratio of 1:5 in the limited action he has seen.

Cleveland +7 (vs. New York Giants) –  A classic trap game for Eli Manning and the Giants who are riding a stellar five-game win streak. The Giants haven’t beaten any team by more than seven points this season.

Atlanta -4.5 (vs. Arizona) –  Carson Palmer is a mere shell of his 2015 self and grades out as the 24th best quarterback through 11 weeks. The Falcons need to bounce back after last week as the rest of the NFC South is closing the gap.

San Diego 0 (@ Houston) –  The Chargers are the best four-win team we have seen in a while. Two quick stats for this game: The Chargers have scored the second most points this season while the Texans have scored the third fewest.

Oakland -4 (vs. Carolina) –  The tattered Panthers defense will be even more exposed without All-Pro linebacker Luke Kuechly on Sunday and Cam Newton is struggling while getting hit from every direction behind a subpar offensive line. The Raiders are home and playing to stay atop the crowded AFC West.
