NFL weekend predictions: Falcons to check Chiefs’ postseason push

The NFC South-leading Falcons should have too much for Kansas City – and expect the 49ers to top the Bears thanks to Colin Kaepernick’s good recent form

Last week I messed up. A copy-and-paste error led to me failing to recognise fully half of the contestants who had correctly called all six games correctly in week 11, and for that I can only apologise.

Five others matched their achievements in week 12, so please remain on your feet, ladies and gentlemen, as we offer bobajob86, DSizzle2013, FraserAH, onestepforward and Steve Mansfield an equally rapturous round of applause. And then plonk yourself down in your comfiest chair, and get to picking this weeks games.
