NFL Pick ‘Ems (Week Twelve; 2015)

Never say never, but I don’t think I’ll ever be this late with picks again. With time against me, I’ll simply make my picks with a very brief entry as to why.

BUF @ KC

Buffalo at Kansas City

  • Favorite: Kansas City (via NFLPickWatch.com)

Kansas City’s on a roll and Buffalo’s inconsistent.

Winner: Kansas City

STL @ CIN

St. Louis at Cincinnati

  • Favorite: Cincinnati

I don’t even need to explain this one.

Winner: Cincinnati

NO @ HOU

New Orleans at Houston

  • Favorite: Houston

Like with Buffalo at Kansas City, Houston’s on a roll and New Orleans is inconsistent.

Winner: Houston

TB @ IND

Tampa Bay at Indianapolis

  • Favorite: Indianapolis

Tough choice, but I think Indianapolis has a bit of “Save Pagano’s job” magic going on right now.

Winner: Indianapolis

SD @ JAX

San Diego at Jacksonville

  • Favorite: Jacksonville

San Diego this year is the Jacksonville of 2013. They may not win another game.

Winner: Jacksonville

MIA @ NYJ

Miami at New York

  • Favorite: New York

Miami’s a bad team, but I’m choosing them to upset a struggling New York defense (now without Darrelle Revis).

Winner: Miami

MIN @ ATL

Minnesota at Atlanta

  • Favorite: Minnesota

More people are picking Atlanta than I would’ve expected. It baffles me.

Winner: Minnesota

NYG @ WAS

New York at Washington

  • Favorite: New York

Another tough choice, but I like Tom Coughlin late in the season.

Winner: New York

OAK @ TEN

Oakland at Tennessee

  • Favorite: Oakland

The tides sure have turned for Oakland. Once heavy favorites against Minnesota, now they’re light favorites against Tennessee.

Winner: Oakland

ARI @ SF

Arizona at San Francisco

  • Favorite: Arizona

Lol.

Winner: Arizona

PIT @ SEA

Pittsburgh at Seattle

  • Favorite: Seattle

Much like Arizona at Seattle a few weeks ago, I like Pittsburgh to test the Legion of Boom and succeed.

Winner: Pittsburgh

NE @ DEN

New England at Denver

  • Favorite: New England

A likely defensive battle, I trust Tom Brady more than Brock Osweiler.

Winner: New England

BAL @ CLE

Baltimore at Cleveland

  • Favorite: Cleveland

Joe Flacco, Justin Forsett, and the entire 2012 defensive line-up aren’t starting for Baltimore.

Winner: Cleveland

School is Procrastination’s Mellow Fellow

Due to reasons that are completely my fault, I haven’t been able to post on here as much as I’ve wanted to. Anyone actively following will have seen that all I’ve been posting about lately is NFL-related stuff. Believe me, it’s been a nightmare trying to fit that stuff in, too.

School is taking up a lot of my time, and my procrastination habit is only making it far worse. My time management has been pathetic thus far, causing me to either push off homework assignments or skip class altogether. I’ve also been horrible with trying to wake up and do the things I need to do. This morning, I planned to wake up at 6:00 A.M. to finish up a draft of a four page paper (which is basically nothing). This is what happened:

6:00 A.M.: Wakes up and sets alarm for 7:00 A.M. Goes back to sleep.

7:00 A.M.: Wakes up and sets alarm for 8:00 A.M. Goes back to sleep.

8:00 A.M.: Wakes up and sets alarm for 8:30 A.M. Goes back to sleep.

8:30 A.M.: Wakes up and sets alarm for 9:20 A.M. Goes back to sleep.

9:20 A.M.: Wakes up and gets into a sitting position, staring at the ground for a couple minutes. Decides to take the grade deduction for incomplete work. Lays back down and falls asleep.

9:45 A.M.: Checks the time. Falls back asleep.

10:25 A.M.: Checks the time. Falls back asleep.

10:55 A.M.: Checks the time. Wakes up. School starts in an hour and a half.

Also note: Last night I went to bed at 11:00 P.M. I’m really awful.

I suppose the point of this note is to vent out my frustration with my inability to stick to my words, on top of putting out something, as I probably won’t have time to put out anything else until early tomorrow morning. I’m determined to see this lax nature be put to rest now that school is starting to ask more of my time. Until then, my entries may be more sporadic and one-dimensional, as NFL-related notes are easy to write about.

I apologize to anyone who only comes here for anime.
