NFL Picks: The 2013 Season
The Baltimore Ravens enter the 2013 NFL season as defending Super Bowl champions. Quarterback Joe Flacco received an enormous contract extension during the offseason, but the reigning champs lost plenty of talent, including linebacker Ray Lewis, safety Ed Reed and wide receiver Anquan Boldin.
The team the Ravens defeated in Super Bowl XLVII, the San Francisco 49ers, enters the 2013 NFL season as one of the favorites to win the NFC crown. San Francisco is expected to be in a season-long struggle with the Seattle Seahawks for NFC West supremacy.
The season will culminate with Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday, February 2nd at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. This season’s Super Bowl is the first to intentionally be scheduled in a cold-weather city with an outdoor stadium.
The NFL Picks Pool
The NFL picks pool is a fun and simple way to follow every game during the season. The 32 NFL teams are split up into eight groups of four. To take part in the pool, simply select one team from each group that you wish to represent you for the entire season.
For example, Group 3 consists of:
- New York Giants
- Pittsburgh Steelers
- Baltimore Ravens
- Washington Redskins
Pick one team from that group and that’s your squad for the rest of the year. Each win during the season is worth one point. The participant with the most points at after the Super Bowl is the winner. To make things more interesting, you can choose certain weeks during the season and make each victory worth two points. You can also increase the value of a playoff or Super Bowl victory.
With the NFL picks pool, you can track your favorite teams and your hated rivals simultaneously.
