2012-2013 NFL Expert Picks

After enough waiting, the 2012-2013 NFL season is finally upon us. The replacement refs will start the season for awhile, which should shake things up a bit to begin the season.

2012 NFL Playoffs Expert Picks: Super Bowl Results

A heartbreaking loss for New England; another well-fought victory for New York. New York won again behind a season eerily similar to four years ago.

The Super Bowl is finally here, and once again, it’s New England vs. New York (if you include the other side of the New Jersey border).

2012 NFL Playoffs Expert Picks: Pro Bowl Results

The Pro Bowl is now over, and everyone was caught by surprise.

The Pro Bowl is here, which mean’s it’s now officially Super Bowl week!

2012 NFL Playoffs Expert Picks: Conference Championship Results

The Super Bowl is now set. It’s a rematch of four years ago in the Patriots and Giants.

We’ll see in two weeks. […]

2012 NFL Playoff Expert Picks: Divisional Round

It almost time for the Divisional round of the playoffs to begin, and there are some pretty interesting story lines going. Can Houston beat Baltimore for the first time ever?

2012 NFL Playoffs Expert Picks: Wildcard Round Results

The first round is now complete, and it was filled with surprises. Denver pulled off the improbable win against Pittsburgh, Cincinnati bit the dust and Atlanta still hasn’t won a playoff game in the Matt Ryan era, this time managing just a measly safety. That threw a monkey wrench into the plans of some of […]

2011-2012 NFL Expert Picks Results

It was a wild and exciting season, and the playoffs are now upon us. San Francisco was a big surprise for most everyone. So was Indianapolis, for that matter, but for a different reason.

And between a match-up of two incredibly similar teams, the Green Bay Packers’ dynamic play, coupled with three Pittsburgh turnovers, was enough to eke out a six-point victory, 31-25.
