Every year, around week 13, I get so sick of my picks. They become a nightmare of an obligation, and I eventually post a half-assed parade of picks where I don’t both to explain a single game. SO THIS YEAR, I BROKE THE CODE. I’m literally just posting my picks! I’m not going to explain a single one of them.
Fight me in the street, algorithm.

My lock of the week is the Jacksonville Jaguars beating the Houston Texans. I just think the Houston Texans could teach a masterclass on mismanagement. I don’t remember the last time I saw a roster with such little talent, and I’m a Raiders fan, as well as an honorary member of Browns Twitter.
Some picks I’m not sure about? The Chargers/Football Team game could go either way. I’m not in love with the Jets/Panthers pick. I wouldn’t be shocked if the Steelers beat the Bills. I sincerely hope Cleveland upsets Kansas City. The Patriots could surprise people this year, starting with a week one upset of the Dolphins (what a weird sentence). And finally, my Raiders could beat the Ravens.
Hey, ya never know.
