Want to test your football prognostication skills against the experts of This Week in Football? This season, you have the chance!

Each week, we will post the TWIF panel’s picks for every game on the NFL slate here on YESNetwork.com, so you can see how your thoughts compare to those of Ryan Ruocco, Howard Cross, Ross Tucker, and Gary Myers. In addition, we’ll also be keeping a tally of how Ryan and the gang do all season, so come January you’ll see who has bragging rights as the big winner among the panel.

You can keep track of your record and see if you end up beating the experts...and of course, don't forget to watch This Week in Football every Tuesday during the NFL season on YES!

Week 11 concluded the byes for the NFL schedule, and a handful of teams set themselves up for the stretch run – including the Niners, who took over as the NFC’s second-best team with their dismantling of the Bears on Monday night. As for the TWIF panel, this week it was Gary Myers who re-asserted himself as the tipster to beat; Myers went 13-1 this week, with only the Thursday night Miami-Buffalo game standing between him and the first perfect pick set of the season, and that performance allowed him to reclaim the lead in the season standings from Ryan Ruocco as well.

In Week 12, all 16 teams are in action for the first time since September. This year, Thanksgiving Day sees a Jets-Patriots battle in Jersey join the usual Lions and Cowboys home games, and with the Giants-Packers game on Sunday night, both New York teams will have the national prime-time spotlight. It’s sure to be a chaotic week in the league, and with the TWIF panel in agreement on just seven of the 16 games this week, it could be chaos in the pick standings as well come next Tuesday.

First, let’s take a look at the latest standings…

WEEK 11 RECORD:
Gary Myers: 13-1 (.929)
Ross Tucker: 11-3 (.786)
Ryan Ruocco: 11-3 (.786)
Howard Cross: 9-5 (.643)

SEASON TO DATE RECORDS:
Gary Myers: 110-49-1 (.691)
Ryan Ruocco: 109-50-1 (.684)
