The Atlanta Falcons host the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12. Who will the Blogging Dirty writers pick to win in this week’s NFC South contests?

Maybe it’s time to pick against the Atlanta Falcons, who continue to let down the Blogging Dirty staff. In last week’s selections, Curtis Hobbs was the only writer to go against the Falcons, and completed a perfect 3-0 score on the week to strengthen his grip atop the standings.

It’s another tough week to predict in the NFC South. The 10-0 Carolina Panthers take on the 3-7 Dallas Cowboys, but forget the records in this one, Tony Romo is back. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Indianapolis Colts on the road, and the New Orleans Saints are away to the Houston Texans.

Will anybody go 4-0 on the week? It could make all the difference to the standings when the end of the season arrives. Let’s begin with this week’s staff picks.


Curtis Hobbs (24-11)
Adnan Ikic, Aloïs Piet (22-13)
Eric Robinson (20-15)
Kevin Knight (19-16)
Alphonso Thomas (14-21)
