Hi everyone, and welcome to Week 12. We have an early deadline this week because of Thanksgiving, so let's get to it. First up, a loot at this week's "If..." chart:

In the AFC, Indiana Jems has made a big jump taking over the lead in the West and grabbing the #3 spot, knocking Lyle Alzado down out of the postseason picture. In the NFC, Fighting Sporks now leads the West there, giving him the #4 spot and pushing Evil Squad Of Evil down into the grey.

All right, let's see what all-important divisional matches we have on tap for Week 12:

We'll start out in the AFC North where the red-hot JPP's Missing Fingers is looking to keep his league-best six-match winning streak rolling along. After starting out 2-2, he's been on fire throughout October and November, and now has the best chance of knocking Brenda's Bulldogs off her #1 seed spot. In his way this week is Mean Machine, who is now statistically eliminated from division title contention, but still has an outside shot at a wild card berth. It would pretty much take going unbeaten from here on out. Can he pull it off? He's got a tricky road ahead with five of his final six matches against current playoff players.

And speaking of, the rest of the AFC North is in action with Brenda's Bulldogs looking to stave off JPP's Missing Fingers by getting the season sweep over I Will Win It All here. And...

...and realistically, I'm never going to get this preview finished in time, what with the early deadline. So...

AFC West -- Lyle Alzado and Why Not Zoidberg? are currently the bottom half of the division, but both are potentially only one win out of the division lead.

NFC North -- Rabid Ferrets and Ignats are currently the bottom half of the division, but both are potentially only two or three wins out of the division lead.

NFC East -- Turf Toe has a solid lead in the division, and while a win over fourth-place Hyena wouldn't lock the title up for him just yet, he would have to have a pretty epic collapse to lose it.

Ok, sorry for the speed-preview, but since we have to have all the Thanksgiving Day game submissions in by Wednesday night, we needed to cut this short. Your three Thursday game pick submissions are due in by 8:00 on WEDNESDAY, so please don't be late with them. Thanks much everyone!

Our picks are in, and we have ten matches that have at least one difference in the Thanksgiving Day games (three of them have difference in two of the games, but none went separate ways on all three).

Check the updated pick chart, and enjoy the holiday everyone!

All the picks are now in, and this is a wildly different pick chart than we've had recently. While last week, most matches only had three or four differences, this week that's the minimum, with most matches in the six or seven area.

So it's no surprise that we have a Diverse Picks Match of the Week on tap. Only one person went perfect on Thanksfiving day, meaning StuB currently has a two-pick lead over Deesato. But with a ten-difference match, there's still a whole lot of action left for Deesato to catch up.

Ok, that'll do it for preview time. Take a look at the full pick chart, and check back after the early games to see how things are progressing. Good luck, everyone!


Every Game: Well, the week kind of got away from us here -- first time in several years that there were no mid-match updates. That means we've all 15 winners coming at you at once here -- congratulations go out to Bad Mice, Black And Blues Brothers, Buttfumbler, Deesato, Delta Dawgs, Fighting Sporks, Hoodie's Hoodlums, I Will Win It All, Ignats, JPP's Missing Fingers, Lyle Alzado, Mike C, Pigskin Palookas, Turf Toe, and Vlad M, all of whom put together a winning effort this week.

Extra congratulations go out to Mike C -- crazy as it seems, even though he's spent most of this season in last place in the Power Rankings, he's still very much alive in the AFC East. And if he'll almost certainly bounce back into the division lead if he keeps putting up numbers like he did this week, which were enough to give him Player of the Week!

All right, that'll wrap up another week here. Check the finalized pick chart, see how you're looking in the Standings, and get a jump on those Week 13 pick submissions. Have a great week all!
