Here is how the NFL pundits from ESPN, Yahoo, and CBS Sports did with their Week 13 predictions. Chris Mortensen of ESPN posted the best performance, and as a result, toppled colleague Seth Wickersham for the season lead. Mortensen went 12-4 for the week, including several upsets such as the Chiefs over the Panthers, Seahawks over the Bears, and Redskins over the Giants. A slew of pundits were 11-5, including Keyshawn Johnson, who had struggled this season, and Mike Silver of Yahoo, who has consistently been a stellar performer.

Adam Schefter was the only one to pick the Rams over the 49ers, while only two pundits (Eric Allen and Ryan Wilson) had the Steelers beating the Ravens.
