The Seahawks go down again. Teams winning the Superbowl have not fared particularly well in the next season. Seattle is threatening to be the fourth straight winner to not even make the playoffs. Whether it’s a Superbowl curse, a hangover, or just a tougher schedule there have been many teams to underperform the following year. They’re a bit of a roller coaster ride to watch, with quality wins and head scratchers. Though they’re not nearly as confusing to watch as the Pittsburgh Steelers. While they did eventually pull out the win against the Titans, in no small part to Bell’s fantastic game, they still looked like the lesser team for much of the game. With losses against Tampa Bay and the Jets already, it’s puzzling on what to make out of their brief offensive explosion. Speaking of Tampa Bay, win number two now somehow puts them in striking distance for the division title. It’s not going to happen, but the fact they’re technically still in it speaks terribly for the whole NFC South. As far as the week twelve, here are my picks:

  • Kansas City
  • Atlanta
  • New York Jets
  • Chicago
  • Cincinnati
  • New England
  • Green Bay
  • Philadelphia
  • Indianapolis
  • St. Louis
  • Arizona
  • Denver
  • San Francisco
  • Dallas
  • New Orleans

We’re entering the home stretch here, with every game meaning a little more as the playoff picture shakes out. New Orleans and Atlanta in particular is an interesting race. I’m looking not only to see who picks up the division win but if either team turns it on hot enough to look like trouble in the playoffs.

Love my picks? Hate ’em? Are you a fan in denial and need to vent? Comment below.
