Whatever you thought you knew about the NFL, Week 12 wants you to just throw it out and start over again. After Week 11 (and numerous other weeks this year), it's almost like pushing the reset button on storylines fans have been telling since August.
Who thought that the Cleveland Browns would take the Dallas Cowboys to overtime, or that the Buffalo Bills' rushing defense would hold Reggie Bush (who lit them up for 200 yards last season)? Who could have guessed that Matt Ryan would drop interception after interception and allow the Arizona Cardinals to stay in the game? Who had Week 11 as the week we saw Byron Leftwich, Jason Campbell and Chad Henne? What year is this?
Week 12 promises to have all of the drama and even more as the bye weeks are over and all 32 teams are in action over the holiday weekend.
The New York Giants and Green Bay Packers face off in what should be the game of the week, if Eli Manning and company decide to try at any point during November this year. The New England Patriots and New York Jets always make for a good game; hopefully the Jets' win against St. Louis puts some pep in their step against their divisional opponent. San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints game promises to be great, if only for the decision on who will be under center for a Niners team that just received something to be very thankful for in Colin Kaepernick.
So, who wins these matchups and more? On to the picks...
