NFL Week 13 picks: Our predictions for every game on the slate

And so we’ve come to Week 13, which starts with an intriguing Cowboys-Vikings showdown on Thursday night and ends with a Colts-Jets clunker on Monday night. In between: a couple of interesting cross-conference battles on Sunday with the Chiefs visiting the Falcons and the Giants in Pittsburgh. It’s also our last week for byes — the Browns (mercifully) and Titans are idle.  

Surprise of the Week: The Lions are 7-4 and leading the NFC North, but only one single panelist — Schrager again — likes them on the road in New Orleans against the 5-6 Saints this weekend. Defense will be hard to come by in that one.

Participating this year:

— Chris Chase, Dieter Kurtenbach, Andrew Lynch and Brett Smiley, FOX Sports writers;

—” Peter Schrager, FOX Sports NFL insider;

—” And WhatIfSports, FOX Sports’ simulation engine for computer-generated picks.
