NFL Week 13 picks: At least the Draft is near for some teams?

1 of 4

Last week’s New Orleans Saints performance was once again abysmal. Getting blown out by a team with a pathetic offense and pedestrian defense (defensive line excluded) is an art Sean Payton’s men seem to have mastered over the past two years.

Luckily, we’re nearing the end of this season: Here’s our NFL Week 13 game picks.

Thursday Night Football: Green Bay Packers (7-4) at Detroit Lions (4-7)

Jim Bob Cooter here, Jim Bob Cooter there. The national media is impressed that the Lions offense improved, even though there was just a way up. Green Bay needs its opponents to have a horrendous offensive line in order to win games and they are in luck. Detroit’s pass-blocker faced weak pass rushers the past weeks and Matthew Stafford is due for a few takedowns. This game might come down to the wire as the Packers want to even out the division race and the Lions seem determined to pick in the lower half of the draft.
