Still Curtain NFL Week 13 Picks


The Still Curtain staff picks winners for each game on the NFL Week 13 schedule.

The NFL is down to just one undefeated team and the season is gearing towards the playoff push. One thing is clear; we still don’t know what constitutes a catch. I’m sure it will get worked out eventually. The NFL is so great at handling things these days.

Here at Still Curtain we are not only a bunch of nerds who follow the Steelers tirelessly but we are also a bunch of nerds who follow the NFL tirelessly. Therefore we put our money (or maybe just our pride) where our mouths are and make picks on every NFL game on the schedule each week.

We don’t mess around with point spreads or anything like that. Just straight up picks.

The NFL week kicks off with an NFC North battle between the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions. Hopefully the hex that Brett Favre put on Aaron Rodgers to make him play worse than Jay Cutler has worn off by now.

Around the AFC North the Ravens travel to Miami where they hope they can keep the momentum going after just barely beating an awful Browns team. Speaking of the Browns, they’ll host the Bengals who just got back on the winning side themselves. The Browns have a decision to make at quarterback with Josh McCown out for the season and Johnny Manziel still sitting in timeout.

The Steelers host the Colts in a pivotal game for Pittsburgh’s playoff hopes. Last year when the teams met Ben Roethlisberger threw for a franchise record 522 yards and six passing touchdowns in a 51-34 victory.  He’ll have to pass the NFL’s concussion protocol if he wants a shot at a repeat performance this Sunday night.

Last week there was a three-way tie between myself, Justin and Zack with 10 winners. Zack and Remy now share the overall lead. I’ve got them right where I want them.
