NFL Weekly Preview Week 12: Key Injuries, Player Statistical Projections & Possible Upsets

Week 12 of the 2022 National Football League season starts on Thursday with three games as it is American Thanksgiving–Buffalo is in Detroit, the New York Giants are in Dallas, and New England is in Minnesota. 

Key Injuries

There were four significant injuries in week 12. Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts injured his medial collateral ligament in the Falcons’s 27-24 win over the Chicago Bears. In 10 games this season, Pitts, a native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has 28 catches for 356 yards and two touchdowns.

In Los Angeles, Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams of Vance, South Carolina, re-injured his ankle against the Kansas City Chiefs and is expected to be out long term. So far in eight games, Williams had 38 catches for 510 yards and three touchdowns. Also in the Chiefs/Chargers game, which was won by Kansas City 30-27, Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire of Baton Rouge, Louisiana had a high ankle sprain and is projected to be out four to six weeks. This means that rookie Isiah Pacheco will take over primary running back duties in Kansas City. In the last two games, he has had 189 yards rushing.

Finally in New York, Giants rookie wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson of Frankfort, Kentucky is out for the season with a torn Anterior Cruciate Ligament he suffered on Sunday, in the Giants’s 31-18 loss Sunday to Detroit. Robinson had 23 catches for 227 yards and one touchdown in his first NFL season.

Possible Upset

Last week. I was 3-1 in my four possible upsets. This week, I am picking Pittsburgh to upset Indianapolis on Monday night. The Steelers were very competitive in a 37-30 loss to Cincinnati last week, and it appears rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett is finding chemistry with rookie wide receiver George Pickens.
