Another week of NFL competition has come to a close. It saw the Thanksgiving holiday pass by yet again with another successful year of football for families around the country to tune in while they eat turkey. It was a fun week of competition that saw plenty of playoff-like games occur. Plenty of changes happened in the playoff picture this past weekend.

The Steelers were able to win their divisional matchup and bounce back from their letdown loss to the Browns a week prior. It was a close victory over Cincinnati last Sunday, but it showed a spark on offense that this team has been searching for. They still have plenty of things to fix, namely scoring more points, but the Steelers seem to be on the right path for now.

2023 season prediction record after Week 12: 89-59

No picks last week as we got to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday. We carry over the week's priors record and that sees us remain 30 picks into a positive record. We roll into this week in a good position and we should be able to finish the year in a better way once it is all said and done. This week has a couple of games that could make things difficult for this week's predictions.

Seattle Seahawks (6-5) vs Dallas Cowboys (8-2), Thursday at 8:15 P.M. EST

Prediction: Cowboys 27, Seahawks 23

Seattle has begun to struggle since their fast start to the season. Things have not been great lately and being on the road this week will not help matters either. Both of these clubs will likely make the playoffs unless they completely collapse. Dallas has been one of the best teams when they play at home this season, and that trend should continue here.

The Seahawks will stay in this game and keep it from a blowout performance by the Cowboys. Dak Prescott is playing some of the best football of his career, but his team routinely struggles against playoff-caliber opponents. This is a game where the Cowboys can make somewhat of a statement by handling the Seahawks this Thursday.
