NFL Week 13: This Can't Happen

It's pretty special, quite frankly, to see two teams sitting at 11-0 so far this season.

This trend is one that can't possibly continue.

Don't get me wrong. The Colts and Saints are both rock-solid teams who are deserving of strong records, but they've also gotten lucky.

We know at least one of them will eventually lose, and the way Brett Favre is playing, you have to think the Saints are going to have a hell of a time advancing to Miami.

Will it happen this week? Can the 1972 Miami Dolphins finally pop the corks?

Probably not.

Indianapolis is home for red-hot Tennessee, winners of five straight. This would probably be a better upset special if the Titans were 2-9 or something, but instead they're on fire, people have noticed, and the Colts should be ready.
The pick: Indianapolis

The Saints play a game that has "letdown" all over it, as they travel to Washington. The Redskins are coming off a couple very tough losses, and they're generally terrible. It's just the kind of team that can be overlooked, no matter how strong a speech the head coach gives about not overlooking the opponent.

Be afraid, Saints fans. Be very afraid.

Just not too afraid.
The pick: New Orleans
