I've gone on record with my 2013 picks for every NFL game, even though it's still very early.

Will I be right? Will a few teams prove me wrong? Based on my picks for 2012 and how that season played out, probably a little of both.

There's no doubt I missed the mark on some of these teams, like the Colts, Eagles and Redskins.

On the other hand, I nailed it with teams like the Bears, Dolphins and Bengals. And if you're a Bengals fan, you're probably hoping my accuracy carries over to 2013, since I've got them in the Super Bowl.

Here's a look at how I did in 2012.
