The main problem I have when picking NFL games over the course of a season is I stretch for outlandish upsets in an attempt to skyrocket the leader board from Week 1.
It’s a better approach for short stretches, such as with the NCAA basketball tournament.
The downside to this strategy in football is that by December, I am in the unwanted position of needing to rely on such upsets just to claw my way back.
Why do I never learn? Luckily, Week 13 contains a few games with upset possibilities.
I’m not suggesting these are sure-fire wins to base your dominance on, but if you need some long-shot picks to close the gap with, try these four games.
