TransGriot 2016 NFL Picks -Week 13

Image result for cleveland browns remaining football schedule
We've now moved into the final month of the NFL regular season.   While some teams are fighting for playoff position, others are jockeying for the number one NFL pick in the upcoming 2017 NFL Draft in Philadelphia

Right now, that team with a seeming lock on the number one draft pick is the 0-for-2016 Cleveland Browns.   Unfortunately for the city's sports longsuffering sports fans who have been rewarded for their loyalty with an NBA title courtesy of the Cavs and a 2016 World Series appearance in which they fell in seven thrilling games to the Chicago Cubs, the Browns are flirting with historic futility.

They are staring at joining the 1960 Dallas Cowboys, the 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the 1982 Baltimore Colts and 2008 Detroit Lions just to name a few of the eleven winless teams in NFL history that played 8 or more games.

With their remaining games at home against the Bengals and Chargers and road games with the Bills and Steelers, they are looking more and more like unless those four teams have a extremely bad day, the Browns are going to finish 0-16.  

Speaking of records,  Mike won Week 12  thanks to my Texans doing a Cleveland Browns impersonation and throwing away a winnable home game against the Chargers, the Titans pulling off the upset on the Bears, and the Vikings being in the holiday spirit on Turkey Day and fumbling the ball deep in their own territory in overtime and handing them the game on a platter.

Bitch session is over, time to pull up the big girl panties and handle my prognostication business

Let's get to this week's picks.   Only 15 games this week since the Browns and Titans Traitors are on their bye week. , Mike's picks are here, and mine will be in bold print with home team in CAPS
