’21 NFL Pick’em Week 12

Once upon a time, 7 Rings were running away with the Pick’Em championship. The team’s lead used to be over five points (games); however, some off weeks have lowered their number to just three as week 12 ends. 

Although the boys had the second-best numbers this week, their lead is within reach for the other four teams in the league because the gap is only six games from top to bottom.
