Week 12 NFL Picks: Who Is Making A Playoff Push This Weekend?

New, comments

The standings are close as NFL teams begin their playoff push. Through the first 11 weeks, there are 23 teams either in or within one game of a playoff spot. Check out which teams our panelists think will create some separation his weekend.

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

The New York Giants have won four consecutive games and are now just a game-and-a-half out of first place in the NFC East.

With a win against Dallas on Sunday, the Giants would become only the second team in NFL history to lose its first six games and win its next five games (Tennessee in 2009). Can the Giants repeat such an improbable feat? The Cowboys have been allowing their opponents to set all kinds of records this year, so it's certainly a possibility.

On the other hand, Tony Romo has 12 TDs vs. 3 INTs with a 117.7 passer rating in his last four starts @ the Giants and has had a 100+ rating in each of those last four starts in New York.

Find out which team our panel is picking in this and all other Week 12 games below.
