Every week, 200+ participants take part in our Pick 256 Challenge, a season-long contest in which BTB members and readers get to pick the straight-up winners for all games each week.

Three Week 12 games are already in the books after the triple-header on Thanksgiving, and two of those games went against the consensus pick.

As it is, only one of the 211 Week 12 participants, shooter09,  got all three picks right, while at the other end of the spectrum, 21 participants have started the week 0-3.

On Sunday, Cowboys fans will surely be watching the Giants against the Redskins, in the hopes that a Redskins win will still keep the 3-8 Cowboys in playoff contention.

Other Cowboys fans will be more concerned about securing a Top 5 draft pick, and might be looking at the current draft order and hoping for wins by teams competing with the Cowboys for the top picks in the draft. The draft order as per today:

1. Cleveland Browns (2-8)
2. San Diego Chargers (2-8)
3. Tennessee Titans (2-8)
4. Dallas Cowboys (3-8)
5. Baltimore Ravens (3-7)
6. San Francisco 49ers (3-7)

The Browns, Chargers, Titans, and 49ers are all underdogs in their games on Sunday, so Cowboys fans may want to root for those underdogs this weekend.

With the Cowboys unavailable to cheer for, and the Eagles unavailable to cheer against, which team or teams will you be rooting for on Sunday?
