’21 NFL Pick’em Week 13

7 RIngs were on cruise control for the first seven weeks of the regular season, collecting at least 10 points in those matchups. Then the tide turned, and they never secured more than eight points in the five weeks that followed.

With just a few weeks left on the schedule, 7 Rings returned to form in week 13, reaching double digits in wins for the eighth time during this campaign. Despite finding the next gear, the team’s lead at the top is still just three points.
