Welcome to a weekly installment of NFL picks.
Feel free to keep track of your predictions and see if you can beat the author.
Each week, one survivor pick will be made. When selected, a team will not be available for the rest of the season. If the survivor pick loses, the survivor pick is gone for the remainder of the season.
